Can anyone tell me how much federal, state and local money has been spent on the “War on Poverty”? I would suggest more than on the wars we have been in since it started.

Education seems to be more about “warehousing” our kids because their parents have to work. Received first degree in 80’s, for second degree I’m attending a major Southern University and all my advance classes are online. The online labs adjusts to your problem areas, when mastered you move on to next level. Expelled kids take their public school classes online. Prehaps we need to re-evaluate how to teach the kids, not just demand that we throw money at it. All learning will be online soon.

Welfare is welfare no matter who gets it, and should be looked at as a loan, not a way of life. People receiving welfare should have to enter into a contractual obligation to repay at least a percentage of the money they receive.

Spelling and correct usage of our vocabulary is important. Otherwise we sound like uneducated illiterates. People should know their language and appreciate their education.

The most appropriate cartoon of the Middle Eastern child molestor is ….drum roll…. A pile of dust. Am I going to be threatened now or is America still free?

Those that correct everyone’s spelling and grammar are more concerned about that than issues? Do you do anything to fix the educational system, like pushing to get rid of the unions and common core? How about the mandatory testing that will never improve things since there is no level capability among students? Test the teachers instead to see if they are able to teach at their particilar level.

Why shouldn’t we be able to make fun of and ridicule a person who marries a six yr old and then consummates the marriage with her when she turns nine.Just because it happened 1700 years ago and some people think he is a prophet shouldn’t make any difference.

“walking small” will never get convicted of any crime in Clayton County; the “concerned” black clergy tells the jurors how to vote. Maybe the jurors in Gwinett County will do better in this current case…

Be ware of Kauffman Tire at 12390 A Arnold Mill Rd. I am from the old school and when I put a new penny in the tread of my tires you could not see most of Lincoln’s head. That tells me I still have good tread. Kauffman refused to rotate my tires I bought there and said I needed to buy new ones. 10 thousand miles later my tires are still doing good. BE WARE they only want your money.

“SUB-SERVANT?” Oh, dear God. The word is “subservient.” You venters are a poorly-educated lot who seem never to have become familiar with the language.

If you only read the published Vents in the Newspaper, you are missing a very important education regarding the ‘most popular’ statements and the ‘least popular’. This is a rich commentary on the thin philosophy of the Atlanta culture.

Wow murdered four Physicians in 11 years.If you had read your Bible,there isn’t anything in it telling Christians to murder anybody. I doubt if you murder someone if you are really a Christian.Our Muslim friends in ISSI behead more then that before coffee break in the morning.

Yes Chick Fil-A has very nice and respectful employees, but they don’t know how to pack a bag of food. Just consider using two bags instead of filling to the brim for a family of four rather than have it all topple over. You really seem stupid otherwise.

Saudi Arabia deceased King payed for Obama’s Harvard tuition. That’s why Obama was the first President to EVER bow sub-servant to a foreign dignitary! Interesting though, recently the Prince of Saudi Arabia stated that he has NO respect for Obama. (Charlie Rose interview)
