Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

RANT TO THE DOG PARK proposal. Something to think about: The Southeast is the parasite capital of our country, due to our weather. Parents, do not take your children there! Wear shoes!

RAVES TO CIVIC-MINDED people like Sgt. Rountree, Judge Sams and Mr. Sammie Sias, who are willing to work to improve our area by solving our crime problem.

MY RANT? There aren't enough Rants or Raves that make me chuckle as I eat my Cheerios.

A RANT FOR National Hills Shopping Center, where I see hundreds of gallons of water running down the parking lot every morning from watering their grass. Bad corporate citizen.

DOES IT REALLY MATTER how The Augusta Chronicle is laid out? If you do not like it, do not read it. If you do like it, good for you. But for crying out loud, stop talking about it.

THIS IS A BIG RANT for all you idiots who acted like a rioting mob, pushing and shoving people out of line while the Harlem Globetrotters were signing autographed basketballs. Some things never change.

LAST WEEK, I FLEW out of the newly renovated Augusta Regional Airport. The building was beautiful. The security and ticket agents were extremely friendly and helpful. There were no lines, and the flight to Atlanta was 15 minutes early. The entire experience was so pleasant, such a contrast to the chaos at the Atlanta airport.

IT'S TOO BAD that more of the James Brown monies will have to go towards legal fees, what with the ridiculous filing by Tomi Rae for DNA tests for the adult kids listed in the will.

THANKS TO THE LADY at Wal-Mart on Deans Bridge Road for returning my purse to the pharmacy. I had my blood pressure checked, and I forgot it there and didn't know it until I got to the checkout and I went back and she had turned it in there in the pharmacy. ... May God bless her.

A BIG RAVE for the person that found my papers that I lost at Fort Gordon for vehicle identification. I thank him very much. I also have a rave for Mr. Turney, who works there and issues these vehicle ID numbers. I thank all of them. They have done a fine job.

Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles can see my point. If you cannot, that in itself speaks volum.

I think the point

I think the point hypocrites2008 is trying to make"christian134", is if you profess to be a Christian then you are suppose to project Christ-like qualities. Sometimes is not so much what you say, is how you say it. Everyone is initialed to their opinion but when it comes across as hateful criticism you hurt your testimony as well as other Christian's reputation.

Hypo, I'm wondering where

Hypo, I'm wondering where your condemnation of calling people racist was yesterday when "Dr" Gunby pulled the race card out of his [filtered word]. Nobody had mentioned race at all, and he just went and pretty much called the whole republican party racist. Maybe you missed that, so I'll ask you now. Do you condemn such a thing, or is it only when your enemies call someone racist that it angers you?

Hypo, the post I'm talking about was yesterday at 3:31 pm on the article about Dems wanting a turn and run president. Understand, this is not me trying to attack you, I'm just looking for the consistency you always claim to have.

Hey, about that ball game at

Hey, about that ball game at Lake Armistead, North Augusta came though, what happened to Greenbrier? People wanted to see Belcher and Gantt, not a ballgame. Oh, I bet they just told Holder about the game Mon. not almost a year ago.

Wow, sounds like I need to fly out of Augusta's airport. I guess it does not matter if tickets are $200 more.

What have I said that is so

What have I said that is so profoundly hate filled? The Bible tells me I am to love all folks, that is what I try to do but and here ya go folks I do not have to like what people do, say, think, sing or profess to be. I hate sin in any form but as I am a sinner in this world, albeit a blood washed born again Christian, I can say that because I am not a perfect individual. I do not like folks who walk around spewing trash, filthy language, harming children, whatever their ethnicity etc. etc. The list is so long. But as I have not attacked you all personally I do not see the problem. As far as my politics go I do not like Obama for various reasons and they are my reasons...Get over it people and as for InChristLove I have never once denounced your right to speak or in anyway allude to the authenticity of your Christianity. .....Now that being said I am going to have another cup of really good tea....:-)

So why is it ridiculous that

So why is it ridiculous that Tomie Rae wants legitimacy proven if her child has to prove it? Seems logical to me. Whoever isn't really a blood heir-her son included-should be out. When dads request DNA, the mom shouldn't be too offended. That way the dad can say, "yes, this is my child and I WILL be spending time with my little one."

Christmas Eve rains to dry up

If Wednesday seemed particularly wet and dreary, you would be right. The day broke the record for the wettest Christmas Eve that Augusta has ever had.
