Rants & Raves

I HAD TO USE the services of the emergency room at Doctors Hospital three times in the past 30 days. Each time, the men and women who cared for me were very professional, compassionate and quick to make me comfortable. I have been a volunteer at Doctors for 14 years and am proud to say I am a part of such a great institution.


WHO SAYS THE Republicans and Democrats don’t work together? They are working together to ruin this country.

IT APPEARS THAT our government has forgotten whom they work for. They work for us, the people, not themselves. Maybe they need to remember that and either get past themselves or get out of office.


PRESIDENT OBAMA and our Congress were elected to make things happen for the good of our country; instead, we get controversy. Washington is acting like a group of children. Why can’t they work together to accomplish something good for the country? Opposing views, hard-core liberals, middle of the road reps and staunch conservatives can’t find anything in common. I think it all boils down to leadership, which we have none of.


I CAN’T BELIEVE that in this day and age anyone who’s on a system such as EBT would think they would go without. There are so many places that give out foods, clothing, etc. A guy on the bus noticed that I had two small holes in my shirts and immediately told me of some places to get some clothes and food for free. I made sure to forget the info because I never want to get tempted to even think of going to those places but to try to spend as little as possible and to save as much as possible. I just love how Bi-Lo is willing to give me 5 cents per cloth shopping bag I use.


I RECENTLY WENT to Augusta Mall. They should change the name to Thugusta Mall. I suggest you do something to get a hold on the out-of-control thugs or people will start staying away!


A BIG RANT FOR WAGT for showing an infomercial at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday night. Come on, is that all you have to show? I see enough of this late at night, but 7:30 is totally ridiculous.


I DON’T KNOW WHY we have to pay for Georgia Power repairs. They make enough with the high rates we already pay. No wonder they make so much profit – they have no expenses.


NO EXPENSIVE government airplanes flapping around Daniel Village? That’s OK. Just bring on the vendors and the other things.
