Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:



I APPRECIATE The Augusta Chronicle’s calling attention to breast cancer. I am a survivor, as is my wife, but the pink paper was difficult to read.


YOU NEED TO have a mammogram if you are over 40 years old. If you don’t want to do it for yourself, do it for your family.


HOW MANY MORE years do we have to endure this pink newspaper?


RAVE FOR AUGUSTA Waste Management Co. They went above and beyond to help me with my waste problem. It is greatly appreciated.


I THINK IT IS A shame these congressmen are doing the American people like this. We need to let them know what we think. The president hasn’t done enough, either. Black people, you voted for him just like me, and he isn’t doing anything for poor people.


BE 58 OR 59 AND WORK all your life and have Social Security be denied. Be 18 and tell them you’re crazy and you can’t work or you’re suicidal and they’ll give you whatever you want.


REPUBLICANS WANT this country to be a one-party system. Only Republicans need apply, and only Republicans allowed to vote. Period.


MARY MORRISON ON Channel 6: Will you please stop holding that cup and drinking that coffee? Is anything in the cup? Drink it all and get through with it.


WHY WAS THE contract for the miserable computer system for the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) given to a Canadian company? We have plenty of out-of-work computer specialists, and IBM has a great record in these kind of systems.


I LOVE GOING to the Lady A Park in Evans. I don’t enjoy all the dogs running everywhere leaving their droppings. The place has turned into a dog dump.


THE REPUBLICANS AND the tea party continue with their phony lies, and almost 95 percent of Americans can see that, rightfully blamingthem for the shutdown. Now Reps and teas, get to work. You cannot lie anymore about trying to blackmail our president and country. So if you hope to have any chance outside of a majority Democrat election next year, step up to the plate.


RANT TO THE sleepy little town of North Augusta for justifying an armored car. Look out, folks. They are trying to disarm us. Bury your guns if necessary.
