Rants & Raves

TOTALLY AGREE with the complaint about a concert at the Evans amphitheater on a weeknight. I live three miles away from the place and can hear the thumpity-thump-thump, too. And yes, Columbia County does have a noise ordinance.



I BELIEVE IN change but please stop changing the format of some sections of the online paper frequently, especially the obituaries.


BOTH DEMOCRATS, Obama, and the Republicans are screaming about the government shutdown keeping mothers from getting baby formula to feed their kids with. God gave mothers a built-in milk system for feeding babies. It’s not up to taxpayers to carry that burden.


I GRADUATED from Richmond Academy in 1978. I have been away for years but recently came back for an extended family visit. Since when did Augusta become such a hate filled city? Stop watching FOX News and get out and get involved. Maybe you will lose some of the hate the GOP has put in your heart.


YES, WE CAN fix this country. We can vote all incumbents out of office, from local commissioners, to senators and congressman. If they won’t vote in term limits, we will. Send them packing.


RANT TO THE president who will negotiate with Satan, himself, but not any American who doesn’t agree with him. This so-called “leadership” has been anything but. Our country is more divided now than it ever was, all due to a narcissistic, arrogant political party.


IF YOU WANT TO end the madness that is going on in Washington right now, send Congress home and take away their pay. They will fix the problem immediately!


CONCERNING FEDERAL employees who have been designated “non-essential” and therefore being sent home: Has anyone else wondered why our federal government normally funds “non-essential” positions in the first place? If a private business made a habit of employing unnecessary workers, they would soon be bankrupt.


A NEW LIE posted on the White House contact page, “Due to Congress’s failure to pass legislation to fund the government, the information on this web site may not be up to date.” The problem isn’t Congress. It is time for Obama to negotiate with the Republicans instead of with Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, or any other anti-American group.
