Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:


FOUR GEORGIA COLLEGE presidents got pay raises and the head of the University of Georgia has retired with “a $2.7 million parting gift.” Is anybody in any Georgia college learning any more than they were previously?

BRAVO TO the teenage bagger who stopped the shoplifter who assaulted his co-worker. Yes, that shoplifter had to be stopped any way possible so it was nothing but a positive for Mr. Bradford. I hope he will carry forward and serve as a great policeman.

A BIG RAVE and much light and love to Aimee Copeland who’s in our Burn Center in Augusta. Keep your courage up, dear lady; there are plenty of us here in town who emotionally support you. I’m glad to hear that your friends and family are organizing a blood drive for you through Shepeard Community Blood Center. I have been a loyal and regular donor since 1980. You now have a lot of blood buddies, dear lady!

WHEN WILL OBAMA receive the Golden Flip Flop Award. His prior comments on same-sex marriage were always against such unions. Today he now has no regrets in speaking out.

RANT TO THE PERSON who keeps ranting about the smell from the Dumpster at the Peach Orchard Post Office. Those Dumpsters do not belong to the Peach Orchard Post Office. If you cannot identify the ownership of the Dumpsters we suggest you go ahead and move out of Richmond County.

ROMNEY AND THE Republicans want to take our country back to tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires, and let Wall Street write the rules. We’ve seen that movie before, we know how it ends, and none of us wants a sequel.

WHAT DO WE DO about the nation going obese? Soon, the U.S. economy will collapse. Then there’ll be no more government money to hand out and people will either go to work or they’ll starve. And those new workers will lose weight. Nature will eventually fix this problem, but nature is a stern task master.

THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE says there are self-evident truths that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. An Obama supporter of “gay rights” claims, therefore, that “gay” marriage is a God-given right. Meanwhile, God’s Word, the Bible, says just the opposite.
