Rants & Raves

Comments from readers.


I THOUGHT PEOPLE attended church to hear God’s word, not to be told where to sit. If people would mind their own business, you would not have time to bother others who are trying to attend church service. Sweep around your own door before trying to sweep around mine.


RANT TO ALL THE people who rant about the president or anything stupid. How about you stop complaining and thank God you are still getting your food stamps and disability checks.


I RECENTLY STARTED looking for a job in this upswing economy that we have going on in Augusta. I have been online and visited the staffing companies here. I have applied for jobs such as supervisor, operations and others that have been advertised on the local job sites. Then they call to interview you for a job that is always filled or doesn’t exist. They need to start being honest and stop making people spend what money they have for gas or food.


WHAT OUR COMMISSION members need to do is get new businesses into our area and stop raising our taxes at the drop of a pin. We can’t handle any more.


A RANT TO THE Augusta Commission wanting to raise taxes. All the commissioners should take a field trip to Sandy Springs Ga. They have increased services and cut taxes at the same time by privatizing almost everything.


RANT TO GEORGIA Regents University: What you are doing to the dogs, is sick, sick, sick.


VICE PRESIDENT JOE Biden stressed the need for comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship at a recent naturalization ceremony in Atlanta. His speech should have been focused on the audience receiving naturalization and should have thanked them for following the legal process to gain citizenship. Let’s keep our focus on the people who are doing the right thing and not on the illegals who have a total disregard for the law.


WE ARE TOLD not to judge all Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics. On the other hand, we are encouraged to judge all gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.


I GUESS YOU CAN say that North Augusta is no longer a bedroom community with all that they are going to put down on the river. Has everyone forgotten what Augusta did down on the river? Look at it now. It was beautiful when they built it. Lots of people went down there, but now if you go down there you might end up in the hospital.
