Rants & Raves

Comments from our readers:

 

TO THE HIGHLAND PARK neighborhood: If it weren't for those veterans, you might be saying "heil Hitler" or the United States could be a communist dictatorship. Shame on you for not wanting the veterans to have a home. Don't you think they deserve one?

A RANT FOR the South Carolina Highway Department. Will you please cut the grass and weeds on Highway 125 from North Augusta to Jackson? You let it get so high every year, I can't tell the difference between a deer head and a mailbox. I've already hit one this year, and I don't want to hit another.

SONNY PERDUE is urging a review system for teachers. Perdue wants to get another $400 million from Washington. Isn't this just Perdue wanting to sell more Georgia sovereignty to Obama?

EDGEFIELD COUNTY schools are feeding our children unhealthy lunches. So many of the children would love a salad bar. Why not?

A RANT TO THE PERSON who said Glenn Beck has no right to mention Martin Luther King's name along with the tea partiers. Why don't you dig up some of the true history on Dr. King? You may not be so offended after all.

ARIZONA PASSES a state law that allows Arizona cops to do what the feds should be doing, and Obama calls Arizona "irresponsible." Obama took office and immediately began to break laws.

SOME HISPANICS say they fear profiling under Arizona's new immigration law. American citizens and legal immigrants should be happy to prove they're legit in order to get criminals out of the U.S. It's in their interest, both politically and economically, to get illegals kicked out.

MAYBE WE OLD, white Tea Party supporters, who have paid taxes all our working lives and are still paying them, have had more experience with government-run programs and know that if you think you are going to get something free, then you are very gullible and are in for a rude awakening.

A RANT TO PARENTS who spare the rod. Loving your child doesn't mean caving in to every whim and putting the blame on yourself for every misbehavior. If you love your children, then firmly discipline them to help instill respect and self-control. It's undisciplined children and the entertainment venues who cater to them that are causing our society to crumble.
