Rants and raves

Comments from our readers


A HUGE RAVE for Heartsong Spay and Neuter Clinic for providing a tremendous community service by offering expert sterilization procedures at discounted prices. More than 2,608 dogs and cats have been spayed and neutered since the clinic opened.

TO THE AUGUSTA LYNX game night staff: Kudos for turning lemons into lemonade! Last month's two-hour delay was entertaining and downright fun.

A RANT FOR GEORGIA'S 3 percent raise for state employees. What a slap in the face.

TO THE PERSON who ranted about Bill Gates and Warren Buffett not paying taxes on their charitable contributions: At least none of that money will go toward Dubai's gift of bombs and other weapons for Saudi Arabia.

A RAVE TO THE Richmond County Sheriff's Office DUI task force. Thank you for making our streets safer to drive on. If you are the one drinking and driving, I hope they catch you.

A CHRISTMAS BONUS for Richmond County employees -- what is that? But I am sure the "commissioners" had the county pay for their Christmas party.

WHERE IS THE liberals' mindless mantra "separation of church and state!" when the Democrat candidates campaign in churches? Why is it OK for reverends/pastors to support Democrat candidates, but it is not OK for reverends/pastors to support Republican candidates? The liberals' rhetoric becomes just hot air. Maybe we've found the cause of global warming.

TO THE PERSON complaining about the slow computers in the school classrooms. This is a common problem which is caused by hundreds of students a day using the computers and leaving behind hundreds of files that clog up and slow down the computer. The problem can be fixed with a computer "tune-up" or "disk cleanup," an easy procedure which can be accomplished by a teacher who receives proper instructions.

HEADLINE: "BUSH ASKS allies for help to curb threat from Iran." These "allies" Bush is talking to are Muslim leaders of Muslim-controlled countries.

ADM. MICHAEL MULLEN, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is worried about the "image" of the United States abroad. Clearly, he is a politician and not a military leader; thus he should be fired.

SPEAKING OF STATE tax cuts, Sonny Perdue says, "I don't hear a hue and cry from our citizens on that." Since when did Perdue ever act after hearing from the citizens?
