Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:



TOMMY PRICE. CHARLES Nagle. Sandra Carraway. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.


A RANT TO OUR Augusta Commission members for giving property owners a new property tax in the form of a stormwater fee. The passage of the special purpose local option sales tax a few years ago was to improve the infrastructure of the drainage system and free up general funds to do maintenance. Again we the property owner has been misled. Thank you, Augusta Commission.


RAVES TO THE British bride in the paper – and to the other European brides like Kate Middleton – who demonstrate modesty, elegance and class in their choice of wedding gowns. Contrast that with the bare-backed, bare-shouldered and plunging necklines of most of the American brides who think it’s still respectful to look “sexy” during their church service.


IT’S A SHAME THAT President Obama is out there in campaign mode again selling his one and only solution (tax the rich) to deficit reduction. It’s time that he shows leadership in getting all parties together to work diligently to come with a solution that all can agree on. It won’t be easy but with the proper leadership it can be done. Stop wandering around the country wasting time.


A BIG RAVE TO Deanna Brown-Thomas and other Brown children who now sponsor a proper charity giveaway with registration and proof of kids and income for the turkey and toy giveaways. Now the truly needy will be helped with the meal meat and the toys. If only all charities could be conducted that way to freeze out the freeloaders.


YOUR NEWSPAPER reported recently that there were nearly 400,000 girls between ages 15 and 19 who gave birth in 2010. I am just wondering how much of my tax money were used to support these illegitimate babies? I don’t particularly like having to provide support for the irresponsible actions of others.


A HUGE RAVE FOR Angus T. Jones of Two and a Half Men. My prayer is that he will become a leader and continue to speak out against such shows as this one, which has so many moral wrongs that are being seen by our young TV viewers. May God bless him.


THIS IS A RANT about parking at the commissary at Fort Gordon for disabled military people. Since so many people have come here, there has not been any increase in the number of “disabled” spots for disabled retirees and active military. The commandant needs to reassess the parking lot.
