Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:


THIS IS A RANT about child support enforcement. The deadbeat dads are not being made to do what they are supposed to. The judges say miss a payment and you get 30 days, and it's not being enforced. What are we to do?

BUSH HAD his Iraq war. Obama's got his Afghanistan. Give it a couple years and you won't know the difference. Nobody's ever won in Afghanistan, going all the way back to Alexander the Great. Ask the Russians.

THIS IS FOR the person who questioned President Obama saluting a Marine guard before boarding a helicopter. Doesn't he realize that a president is commander-in-chief of the armed forces and it is protocol? Where has he been with all the presidents in the past? I can't believe it.

A BIG RAVE to President Obama for cleaning up eight years of mess. He has done more in 80 days than Bush did in eight years. That's what happens when intelligent people run the nation.

RANT TO ALL the thieves in Augusta. I was at work and you broke into my truck and attempted to steal my radio until my alarm went off. You damaged my truck to the tune of $150 and achieved nothing. Because of you I have purchased a gun. Please come and see me again.

HEADLINE: 'OBAMA maintains control over banks by refusing to accept repayment of TARP money.' How can Obama not accept repayment of those loans? There might be a penalty for early repayment, but not no repayment.

THIS IS A RANT to the lady driver with a child in her car driving while she was texting! You were running all over the road and could have wrecked and killed not only your child but someone else.

RANTS: LUMPKIN ROAD from Butler High School past the Richmond Hill Road intersection. The lines in the road are almost invisible. When are they going reline the road?

SMOKERS OF THE WORLD unite. We've got to guarantee we've got enough votes behind us to start voting some of these representatives and congressmen out of office. We got to do this now.

THIS IS A RAVE for Augusta, Ga., my hometown. I have traveled the Southeast delivering a hometown barbecue sauce for over 10 years and have experienced different cities and towns, and I'm always proud to say that Augusta, Ga., is my hometown. I've also lived here for over 50 years and I wouldn't live in a mansion anywhere else.

WHAT IS UP with having to pay a local job agency $185 to find you a job? I think there is something wrong with having to pay to get a job. Times are hard. Who has $185 when you don't have a job?
