Rants and Raves

Comments from our readers:


DRIVERS WHO do not use their turn signals are just plain lazy and not courteous to other drivers. That’s one good reason to stay about a car length behind so that way you have time to stop.

OK, A RANT here to those that are so against President Obama: Are you really that dumb or are you just racist? In my years here in Georgia, I say racist. All of you! I am a white guy by the way. But I don’t think that I have ever been around as many racists as I have been here in Georgia. And I am from the South. Were you really comfortable voting for McCain? Or was it because he was white? President Obama is an intelligent man. He is educated, unlike our former president, and he has a lot of good ideas. If it weren’t for “your great President Bush” we wouldn’t be where we are now, in a war with a country that doesn’t contain the terrorist that we are looking for and a recession that has many people losing their jobs and homes.

GDP IS DOWN 5.7 percent; unemployment continues to rise; two major car manufacturers have filed or will file for bankruptcy home foreclosures are the highest in history. If this is success for Obama I sure hope that he is not successful any longer.

I AGREE WITH the person who said we should get rid of alternative schools. Attending school should be a privilege. Taxpayers shouldn’t have to pay for someone’s bad seed. These children are obviously not going anywhere in life but jail or prison.

THE ROADS in Augusta are ridiculous. There is construction everywhere and new projects sprouting up, yet none of them seem to be getting finished. How much longer do we have to wait for I-20/Bobby Jones to be completed? And why are they working on Columbia Road when nothing was wrong to begin with?

WHY DO Joggers run in the road when the sidewalk is 4 feet away?

RAVES FOR the new lines on Lumpkin Road. What a difference having a real lane makes.

RANTS TO THE loud music and the nasty words. I was getting gas at Lumpkin and Deans Bridge roads and a young man drove in with loud, vulgar music. He got out of the car and went inside. The noise still boom, boom, boom. These kids have no respect for anyone, including themselves.

RICHMOND COUNTY Coliseum Authority disbands. This sitcom group actually gave themselves plaques for “service to the community.” What was their service? Confusion? Expense and confusion? Or was that service just a few laughs from the sitcom?
