Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:


I CALLED AUGUSTA Cares at 9:30 a.m. on a Monday to report a dead animal on my property, and by 11 a.m. it was removed! A big thank you to Augusta Cares and Animal Services for prompt attention to the matter.

THE REAL REPUBLICANS are morons to put up with the tea party’s stupid, cynical threats against America.

WHY DO PEOPLE assume that Georgia Regents University is going to be able to take over, renovate and use the mills? I realize there are different funding but they can’t rehire back for positions, they can’t pass a raise, they already have grounds they can’t keep up with at Summerville. Where is the money coming from?

MR. PRESIDENT, YOU were very quick to pick up the phone to call the Iranian president to discuss ways to shut down their nuclear program. However, you were very slow to pick up the phone to call House Speaker John Boehner to discuss ways to avert a shutdown of our country. I guess it all depended on which had the better photo op.

I HAVE A RANT about Georgia Power. Once again they want us to pay for their mess-ups. They are asking for yet another raise.

HUGE RAVES TO the Augusta Players for their outstanding performance of Les Mis. I was enchanted and transported the entire show. The level of musical talent rivaled anything on Broadway. Well done!

HUGE RANT TO the Democrats. The Republicans tried and tried to compromise with their last offer being to strip Congress’ Cadillac health care package and have the same health care that the public now has. Where is the common sense in Washington? The Democrats shut the government down.

RANT TO THE Chronicle, not for highlighting breast cancer awareness but for failing to recognize September as Ovarian cancer awareness. Ovarian cancer is even more deadly than breast cancer, and it receives little attention.

THIS IS A RAVE for the sheriff’s office for having a larger presence in south Augusta, but the next time you want to do a traffic check, please do not sit at the bottom of the hill on Morgan Road. When I saw this, the word entrapment came to mind. A law of physics states that a vehicle’s speed will accelerate when going down a hill. We are black, but we are working taxpayers who deserve the same fair laws as people in west Augusta and Columbia County.
