Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:


RANT FOR GLOBAL Spectrum and James Brown Arena. Is anyone there ever going to tell the thousands of hockey fans whether we’re going to fix the ice and get the team back here, or are they just going to let it sit?


AS A DISABLED veteran who has had great care from doctors and nurses at the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center, I am appalled at blocking the students from singing and passing out Christmas cards. What is this world coming to when the VA spends millions on medicine for “transgenders” and their mental health but we can’t say “Merry Christmas” without offending someone?


THE CHRISTIAN Taliban is at it again. First they demand that everyone must say “Merry Christmas,” then they get A&E to reverse course on Duck Dynasty. Unfortunately, they didn’t realize A&E used them to create buzz and increase viewership.


IT MIGHT BE INTERESTING to see how the Russians deal with the terrorist attacks on their people. They do not seem to be as worried as U.S. about being politically correct. Maybe they will do what needs to be done and go to the source.


DON’T LET ALVIN Mason fool you. He was accused of domestic violence and stayed away from Augusta Commission meetings for a long time. He is not interested in building up Augusta. He isn’t the one to represent Augusta as mayor.


IF AUGUSTA COMMISSION member Bill Fennoy doesn’t think Charles Walker did anything wrong, then he should be removed from his seat. Read the court transcripts. It wasn’t just one person ranting about him. Keep Walker out of Augusta politics when he comes back to town.


PRESIDENT OBAMA claims he has had more than 1 million Americans sign up for Obamacare on his Web site. This is still nowhere near where he said that number would be just a few weeks back. The odds are not even a million have really signed up.


IT IS ENCOURAGING to hear that only three of 12 regions in Georgia approved the scam called SPLOST tax. Maybe Georgians are gradually waking up to the crime that oozes out of politicians.


TWO MEN WERE robbed of their $150 sneakers. One can’t help but wonder how many people on welfare and food stamps are walking around in shoes that cost $150.
