Pick of the day

If the law said we had to pull over to use a cell phone, would the highway be a parking lot?

Nice work if you can get it

The reason we continue to call ex-politicians, “President, “Senator,” and “Representative,” after they leave office? Because once elected, they are on the government payroll for life.

What Americans want

If I hear one more politician declare what the American people want, I’m going to regurgitate. What the American people want are honest politicians who do not write 2,000-page bills that nobody reads and then pass them.

Head to head

I graduated from Jordan High in 1968, and I’d put my education against any Columbus High graduate from that date forward.

Complaints ignored

Under the new Veterans Affairs’ guidelines, some of our local, terminally ill veterans will not qualify to be transported to Tuskegee for treatment. The director’s office does not take complaints.

Stars in stripes

Paris Hilton needs to be Lindsay Lohan’s roommate. Just a matter of time.

Blame Obama

Obama is driving the country out of the ditch. But oh, who put us in there in the first place? I’ll just blame Obama.

Typical trash

Frankly, I don’t give a rat’s behind about Mel Gibson’s foul language or his wild lifestyle. It’s just typical Hollywood trash!

A good first step

Free advice to all top military experts: You cannot win a war unless you can identify the enemy.

Water, please

The newly planted trees on the Rails to Trails project, along the Warm Springs Road area, are dying. Can we get someone out there to water them?

Waste of time

Today, Monday, I have had 10 political calls while trying to have lunch and take a nap. I’ve already voted absentee ballot!
