Rants and raves

BIG RAVE FOR Dianne at the CVS pharmacy on Peach Orchard for taking her time to get me my son's medicine. She called the insurance and after they denied covering the meds, she called his doctor to get him another med that the insurance would cover.

IF I WERE RUNNING for president I wouldn't want Ted to be on my side.

FOR THE PERSON WHO thinks that the "speed humps" are tearing up his front end: You just haven't found the right speed to cross them yet.

I AM SO SICK AND TIRED of the Gilbert Manor issue. Folks want everything for free.

HOW CAN I PUT THIS as delicate as possible: George Bush is, without a doubt, the worst president this country has ever seen, bar none.

A RANT TO the mom at our daughter's basketball game who yelled and screamed the entire game. Even the referee called you out by saying, "Shame on you"! These are CHILDREN and you really need to get a grip.

ABOUT THE POST OFFICE stamp machines: I remember a few years ago the post office was trying to compete with Internet/e-mail FedEx, UPS, DHL, but all they want to do now is discontinue convenient services. I call to complain, but it falls on deaf ears. I am surprised they haven't added a tax to us for having a mailbox in our front yards.

A BIG RANT TO THOSE WHO use smokers for cannon fodder. Not all smokers are the same, so don't stereotype us. And the government needs to quit upping the cigarette tax every time they need to pad their income. Remember what the Boston Tea Party was all about?

STOP PUTTING Tubman Middle down as if it's the worst junior high school in America. Let's talk about what goes on in those schools in Columbia County, as well as some of these private schools that keep all their dirt on the hush-hush!

IF GERRI SAMS WERE white, the black community would be demanding her head on a platter. It's obvious to anyone of even average intelligence what is going on in that department.

I ATTENDED THE David Copperfield show ... at the Bell Auditorium. I have to admit, the show was outstanding. However ... I was shocked at so many empty seats. It seems Augusta is trying to get headliners here; however, we just can't bring the people to the shows. Is this the fault of our local media, civic center and Bell marketing, or just that people are unwilling to spend the money for major headliners? I tend to lean toward the media, since I don't recall one TV ad whatsoever about his appearance. I faintly recall a small ad in this Sunday's paper, though. I have to say that I am very disappointed that we are not showing these acts what Augusta has to offer. Let's go, Augusta!

Yonce, NO ONE has made any

Yonce, NO ONE has made any connection between Bush (or anyone else in his admin) with the purported homo that visited the WH. I do believe I read some where (will research) he/it was some kind of news reporter so count how many time the NY Terrorist Times reporter has been to th WH. As for Carter, I voted for him because he was from Georgia and I knew nothing about his governorship and am embarrasse to say so. My brother-in-law told me that he was also one of the most incompetent governors the state ever had. OPEC pulled their crap because they KNEW Carter had no gonads. Same for the Iranians. One thing for sure, the whole world knows both the Bush boys have gonads, and brass ones at that.

mojo,millions of americans

mojo,millions of americans are still in the "new car syndrome"the car is beautiful,rides well and the owner believes it will last forever.people look at obama this way they don't care what you dig up,he is going to save america,unite it and we will all live happily ever after.bull... you know and i know it.the guy is a con artist.all of a sudden he likes white folks,bull! his wife now likes america, bull! when she came to columbia,she would only visit black universities,and churches.they were in sc over a month so they had time to diversify.he has no answers only it's time for a change.this is not the time for a otj for a president,the world is moving too fast for a rookie president who probably has never even been in the whitehouse before.i believe he will be elected and when the obama's get to washington watch how they slam the door in whities face.oprah,farrakhan,jackson,sharpton,will turn the tables on america and divide this country like it's never been before.think i'm stupid? watch! then cry me a river.i'm writing in gore/edwards myself.

Why do people fear what they

Why do people fear what they do not know. There is nothing wrong with the muslim religion.Ther are people who use the word of islam to justify hate and intolerance much like the name of Christ has been used by fanatics and extremist to justify hate and intolerance. Read up on christanity and see how many acts of violance have taken place in the name of God

I like to thank everyone for

I like to thank everyone for their advice. Tall1 and charley yonce unfortunately for me you're right. I looked at the contract and what a contract. It looks like I'm going to be stuck with a overpriced piece of crap. Alot of people would say let them have it, but I have spent the last year rebuilding my credit. I really want to buy a house next year. So I have to keep paying for it. When I bought that van I was in a really bad place(divorce and brand new job) and if I had known that it was going to be this costly and painful I would never have giving JD byrider the time of day. I look back now and there were other options.

rcr.. hope you are reading

rcr.. hope you are reading and listening to all that is being said or written. when you are not open to find out all you can about a candidate, you are uninformed and shows a lack of intelligence. some may be lies but others aren't. so be it. good luck and enjoy supporting all those people that contribute nothing.

Hi everybody. I did

Hi everybody. I did something I've been trying to do for months. Finally made it to another Mayor's Prayer Breakfast. It was wonderfully uplifting and the breakfast was very nice, too. I try to go every month, but something always seems to happen, so I'm lucky if I make it once or twice a year. We would love more people to come. It is always nice to be around people that care about our city and are working to make it better. It was a great way to start the day.

Converted Southerner, you're on deaf ears, dude. I pay my taxes and do everything, to keep them as low as possible. Voting Republican, is not one of them. You don't know, what I know, about a candidate. We all have one vote, don't tell me how to use mine and I want tell you how to use yours. Who told you , you was right about Obama? Guess what, the voters aren't listening.

What I mean by that RCR are

What I mean by that RCR are two things. Either he will do such a poor job or some big scandle will break that he would be impeached or that while America has come a long way I think there are still people out there who would just not accept a black president and could potentially try to remove him from office.
