Rants & Raves

Comments from readers



THE POLITICAL SIGNS need to come down. They are eyesores. We are tired of seeing them.


IT MUST BE NICE that some veterans can get free homes, while the Vietnam veterans get nothing. We are treated like trash.


GOATS, GOATS. DON’T forget to let Williams out with the goats.


I AM DISABLED; IF I receive a robo-call from a political party or person, I make a notation of who called and then I do not vote for them.


RAVE FOR OUR VETS. Thank you, all of you.


RANT ABOUT YOUNG teenagers today. I work at an all-you-can-eat buffet. One guy walked out because it was too much work for the money. I don’t know who he thinks he is, but sometimes you have to start at the bottom and work your way up. That’s the problem with kids today: they don’t want to work. They want everything served to them on a silver platter.


SENATE CANDIDATE Michelle Nunn “stopped short of calling for (VA head) Shinseki firing…” She’s not even in office and she’s already playing politics.


SO MANY PEOPLE turn their hearts toward God on Sunday, but then on weekdays they will pass you by and won’t even give you a ride.


WE LIVE ON LA VISTA DRIVE in Evans. For the last week somebody has been taking the mail out of our mail boxes and throwing it in the bushes. We have watched, but we haven’t seen anybody yet.


RANT FOR YOU PARENTS who have kids graduating. You need to teach them how to send out thank-you cards when people send them money in the mail.


I WANT TO RECOMMEND the veterans memorial to all the veterans living in Blythe. It is beautiful.


THANK YOU, GLENN Hills and Westside ROTC, for laying flags at the graves of the veterans at Westover cemetery.


LAST WEEK, INSTEAD of riding in the motorcade from the White House to the Department of the Interior building, Obama chose to walk. As he was leaving the White House grounds, he said, “The bear is loose!” I wonder how many of his Secret Service guards had to stifle a laugh when he said this?
