Rants & Raves

Comments from our readers:

THIS IS A BIG RAVE for the overwhelming support that our public service community showed during the funeral service for my good friend and Augusta firefighter, Antonio Jones. He was a best friend to me and to so many others. At the risk of forgetting someone I should not attempt to name everyone but I was especially touched by the turnout of the Columbia County fire and police who posted at so many intersections for the procession. Thank you all very much! God bless you and keep you safe!

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE explain to me how a person who has an outstanding warrant, can attend the Richmond County Christmas party AND get his picture taken for the AC Spotted. Wow!! Talk about hiding in plain sight.

MURDER, SEX, child molestation -- Columbia County a great place to live!

WHY DOES NORTH AUGUSTA and Aiken County charge a convenience fee to pay bills online? I know of no other utility or business that does that. Another way to stick it to the people. How 2011 is it to have someone walk outside several times a day to collect payments dropped in a box?

RAVE TO THE Green Bay Packers for beating the Chicago Bears. This victory saved us tax payers several million dollars as Obama would have had to go to the game. Go Packers.

EVERY TIME PRESIDENT Barack Hussein Obama announces another of his frequent press conferences, or that he'll be making a statement to the Nation, I eagerly tune in -- for the first minute at least. When I realize he's not resigning from office, I turn the channel. Disappointed once again.

ANOTHER ASSOCIATED PRESS non-beliveable headline: "Spending, hiring on upswing to start year." A slight rise of questionably derived stats and for just one month hardly prove an "upswing." Trust government at your peril. That was how the Founding Fathers saw government, and if we don't, we, along with freedom, fall.

A REPORT MENTIONS "Islamist extremists." Is that redundant?

US HOUSE GOP leaders "promise" to cut spending by $100 billion. Since that, compared to how far we are in the hole, is miniscule, it just sounds like the GOP leadership is working WITH Obama and the Dems to strangle the country.

20 DEGREES IN TUCSON , 19 in Dallas, and more record busting cold temps in Obama's hometown of Chicago, yet no big media ever calls Obama/Gore the liars these stats prove they are. Why not?

REMEMBER, NEW ILLEGAL immigration laws won't help a bit unless Obama honors his oath of office and actually enforces those laws...Pretty much all government today is corrupt. Since the federal government is broke, let it shut down. At least, that'll keep them from hurting us worse.
