Rants & Raves



THEY SHOULD MAKE a video and call it “Government Gone Wild.”


RAVE AND THANK YOU to The Augusta Chronicle for your great coverage of the Masters. I appreciate it very much.


I HAVE A RANT FOR all the people who think things are better under Obama. If you work or live off Social Security, as I do, you would know things are a lot worse. The cost of living is way up ... gas is up; medicine is up ... So tell me what is better.


RAVE TO The Augusta Chronicle. I love how we can have serious debates online and no one knows who you are. I can be debating with someone sitting in my office and would never know. Especially, the “Rants & Raves” that is where I love to “hang out” in the mornings.


WE REALLY SHOULD not be using taxpayer money to pay for any private schooling. People need to pay for it on their own. Where are their tithes going to otherwise?


SORRY, AIKEN, but we are glad more people visited Augusta areas direct than heading out of the boundaries.


THAT’S VERY ridiculous belief that religious people should be free of crime. I know plenty of people who “praise the lord” with one breath but can steal and lie like anyone else.


ANTI-SECOND AMENDMENT, anti-gun people claim that the number of times Americans use guns in self-defense tells us we need fewer guns. But that’s a purposefully incorrect take. What counts is that when criminals and criminal politicians KNOW that Joe Citizen is armed, the crooks will not go after them. Thus, the more good guys are armed, the more often bad guys will avoid attacking the good guys. It’s the knowledge that people are armed that stops the bad guys before they even start.


THE FEDS STARTED the Aiken Mox plant eight years ago and it’s only “half-finished.” We were told it would cost $1.7 billion, but now they say up that to $7.7 billion; and now they may abandon the project. Who can invent a better way to steal taxpayer money and throw it away?
