Comments from our readers:

I DIDN'T THINK I would live long enough to see a president dumber than Jimmy Carter but I did.

BILL CLINTON STATED that Hillary should be president because half the world is mad at the U.S. I wonder if that is the half we support with our food and money, or the half we protect with our blood and troops?

A RANT TO jail. My boyfriend has been in there for 15 months now awaiting to go to court. We haven't heard anything about a court date or even heard from his lawyer in months.

A RAVE FOR the Monday business section. I just love it.

A RANT FOR North Augusta High School. The girls' bathrooms are dark and dirty.

A RAVE FOR Judge Overstreet. Thank you very much for giving my grandson his life back.

THE HIGH-TECH lynching of Dave Barbee shows how ignorant the leaders of Augusta are.

I LOVE BILL KIRBY'S article. I would quit taking the paper if it leaves the paper.

RANT TO Bill Kirby about the postcards. The only people who care about reading that is the people who write them and their relatives.

A RAVE FOR the south Augusta fire department for answering my call so quickly in a lighting strike that caused a fire close to our home. Keep up the good work.

AugustaMom--I had a neighbor

AugustaMom--I had a neighbor that stole from me too. He was bad about trying rto steal my fishing rods in my garage. So I set him up. I left my garage door cracked and a rod lying on the ground. Parked my truck in the back and waited in the garage for him. Just like clockwork, he came over. He forced my garage door open and when he reached in to grab the reel, I hit him in the forearm with a softball bat. That served as an anti rod stealing device.

i've never wavered on

i've never wavered on hillary. i don't think she is the greatest candidate,but she's about the best we have,plus we have biden,edwards,obama that would all make a dynamite team.if she gets the nomination i will vote for her.she looked so professional on meet the press.it's so refreshing to see an intelligent,and well read person speak to the cameras,with no gaffes,or pauses.like the brits said in 04 how could 62 million voters be so dumb?i voted for kerry,and i didn't vote in ohio so diebold didn't vote for me.surprised you aren't at the u.n. with the brainwashed protesters rsr.

american1st Your experience

american1st Your experience is my experience. I empathize. I am very disappointed that prejudice and racism still exist. I am proud of blacks and whites who rise above it. I know so many fine people of every race, gender and age that are hugely disappointed that so many are not learning from the mistakes of the past. When I moved here and found America was not the united place I thought it was when I had to travel as a military dependent, I thought surely in 10 years things will be better if we all work toward it. 40 years later, in some ways it seems worse. Don't lose heart, there are still people striving for ideals and unbiased justice.

That's the problem,

That's the problem, Baroness...they retaliate if they find out you reported them. You have to be very careful. And I think some cops actually tell them who called too.

popkorn--If hillary is so

popkorn--If hillary is so intelligent, why did she fail the bar so many times? You never cease to amaze me with your thoughts, but I have to respect them because they are atleast consistent. Hillary has been proven to be a plagiarist, a thorn in her husband's presidential term, and just plain not very intelligent.

Isn't it kind of odd that gypies buy their cars locally? I always thought they bought them somewhere else.

I just watched the video of

I just watched the video of the white kid getting beat up by seven black kids. That is sickening. Now, I'm going to make a lot of people mad in here, so buckle up. If those seven kids were white, what kind of outrage would black leaders be screaming? Buses would be fueled and cameras would be everywhere. Al and Jesse would be all over it. But as white americans, we cannot protest, because it just isn't right. Well, for some of you it isn't. But I say this. Those 7 boys are racists and they should be charges with a hate crime. Lock them up like animals and put them away. There is a HUGE double standard in this country that we ignore. You know it, I know it and the world knows it. We have BET, Ebony magazine, NAACP, Affirmative Action...all this leads to an us against them mentality. It ain't working folks. What happened years ago was wrong and it flat out was stupid. But you can't fix stupid. And you dang sure can't let those 7 boys walk away from this. Pure thugs.

POPkorn...When you hear Hillary and the other candidates, they are reciting what a speechwriter wrote for them. They have their cheat sheets and they memorize from there.

My point is that in a fight,

My point is that in a fight, it does not, or should not mater what someones race is. A physical fight is wrong, the first person to resort to violence is the first person to run out of ideas. I am not talking about self defence here, but fighting over someone said this that or the other thing. As anyone that knows me knows, I am not in any way shape or form a raciest.
