Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

 

 

RUNNING WITH THE bulls in Georgia appears to be drastically different from running with bulls in Spain. Our bulls look placid.

 

ATTORNEY GENERAL Eric Holder announced more federal government, intruding in state and local crime prevention, pretending the feds can do better at stopping school shootings than can locals. Of course, this is just another excuse for President Obama to grab more unconstitutional power for himself and his cohorts (both parties) in Washington. Stand by for martial law.

 

RANT TO EVERYONE afraid to say the real reason for astronomical health care costs; malpractice lawyers and most of the doctors are greedy beyond comprehension.

 

ONCE AGAIN, A teacher has proved that teachers will protect their students at any cost. We need to give them effective tools for defending their students.

 

IF AN INDIVIDUAL cannot afford health insurance in the first place, how is the individual going to pay the penalties?

 

FROM THE WHITE House Web site: “We encourage you to visit whitehouse.gov regularly to follow news and updates, and to learn more about President Obama’s commitment to moving our Nation forward.” Obviously, Obama is directionally challenged.

 

RANT TO NIKKI HALEY for pushing I-73. She needs to get out on South Carolina’s existing interstates and see how much repair is needed there. They are the worst in the continental U.S.

 

DOCTORS FROM CHINA are getting a “first-hand look at American medicine” at GRU. Ho ho! Just in time for Obamacare. That’s one way to sink China.

 

NOW IT’S THE STATE of Missouri that’s worried that death penalty executions might hurt the convicted murderer, so they delay them until they can find the right poison. This is turning into a bizarre joke.

 

IT IS A FALLACY to state that the Augusta Commission is considering renovating downtown. All they are doing is considering renovating an infinitesimally small, insignificant portion of downtown. Of the 600-plus acres they are designating a slum, they are only going to renovate 3-plus acres. That is about one half of 1 percent of downtown.
