The Vent for Sunday

Enough of daylight savings time already. Get rid of it and then perhaps students will be awake enough to learn, driver’s will be awake enough to pay attention, and all of us will be in a better frame of mind and function better!

Why is ‘common good’ and ‘responsible government’ not core Georgia values?

To the Confederate flag venter, the reason people only want to mention slavery as the reason for the war is this is the only way they can justify the aggression against the South by the north that no longer needed slaves to earn their livings.

Solution to cityhood in DeKalb, just let the residents that would be affected vote on whether or not they wish to have another layer of government. Just what is the Lakeside Alliance afraid of?

We don’t grow beards for your aesthetic pleasure. Stuff it!

So… you propose that passengers ought not use a cell phone either?

Mila Kunis engaged to Ashton Kutcher?? What does any woman see in this guy?? What a loser!

Forsyth County Commissioners: The County has come a long way since I moved here in 2000. While everything is not perfect; the worse thing that will happen to it will be the creation of the City of Sharon Springs.

I guess it should also be MANDATORY that every car have something that disables the engine any time the radio is on or there are children in the back seat…those things are every bit as distracting as a phone!

Talked to a 17-year-old dude today with no tattoos, face piercings, beard, no weed, no pants on the ground. The guy was a real freak - freaky dude plain Jane, really weird.

The present government of Afghanistan is doomed to collapse. We should cut our losses now, by immediately pulling out all our troops. But Pres. Obama doesn’t have the courage to face the criticism that would come from the Republicans.
