Rants and raves

This is to the person that wrote in about the arrogance of Obama for allowing Americans to write off charitable donations that they're giving to Haiti in 2010 on their 2009 income tax returns. Talk about arrogance. How about ignorance? What's wrong with that? If it will prompt Americans to give to these poor victims of the earthquake, especially these little children that you see pictured in The Augusta Chronicle. He just really needs to take a look at himself and his own values. Good for Obama.

If everyone who had access to the tax collection office had to take a lie detector test, then we would find out who took that $25,000 from the safe. Don't exclude anyone. Everyone who had access should take a lie detector test.

One big rave to the Columbia Area Youth Football Association for bringing spring football to the CSRA. This is a another outlet for kids to participate in a team sport instead of becoming couch potatoes.

To the ranter blaming the GOP for not having health insurance - did you think of working and buying some for yourself?

This is a rant to the Fox News haters. While you learn how the underpants bomber decorated his dorm, Fox is having a fair and balanced discussion on why the bomber was allowed to lawyer up. You see, the media rarely lie outright; they lie by omission to keep you stupid.

Rant to all those bashing Andre Bauer. What can you expect from a state with the likes of Mark Sanford, Joe Wilson and Jim DeMint?

This is for all who think they know what happened to Sergio Campbell. As a member of his family, I can tell you he was not in a gang and this was not a gang-related incident. Sergio worked two jobs and was into church and loved spending time with his family and friends. Can he please rest in peace as the beautiful young man he is and not be made out to be some young thug?

Cal Thomas says "about 50 million abortions" have occurred in the U.S. since 1973. That's 50 million murders, abetted by politicians and high courts. If any politician does not actively fight against such mayhem, that politician is abetting the slaughter of 50 million American citizens. Have your representatives and senators fought it?

Columbia County is considering tearing down some older schools. How odd that 50-year-old school buildings, which should still be solid, might be torn down so politicians can spend even more money that nobody has. The only reason to tear down an old school is because that old school will fall down by itself soon. And the only reason a 50-year-old building would fall down by itself is because those in charge of keeping it up for that 50 years didn't.

Tell us what you think
