Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

I'D LIKE TO RAVE about the little girl who sang the national anthem at the Augusta Colts game on Thursday night. I didn't catch her name, but she was awesome. Great voice!

'REORGANIZATION DOES not mean termination,' said Jimmy Atkins. Spoken like a true politician! Why spend the thousands of dollars for an audit if you are not going to follow it?

RAVES TO WAGT 26'S meteorological personnel for their outstanding coverage of Saturday's severe weather events.

A HUGE RAVE and thank you to Jeff Rucker! The best weather reporting! We needed him to help keep us safe.

THE WHITE FLOWERS that are blooming on the trees right now are Bradford pear trees!

AMERICA'S HEALTH CARE system is the best in the world. The Democrats want to make it like Canada's and England's: inefficient and ineffective. Vote carefully in November.

THE RICHMOND COUNTY Coliseum Authority should be abolished and the James Brown Arena sold or rented out to a private venue. Taxpayers would be relieved from all the cost and incompetence.

IF HILLARY'S "long experience in the White House" qualifies her to be president, let's elect the White House butler?

RANT TO THE ORGANIZERS of the St. Patrick's Day parade. Why not do Saturday when children are out of school and adults are off work?

HOW IS IT THAT Obama gets a free pass when he is associated with a pastor who is obviously a racist, anti-American, and former candidate Romney was called to the carpet regarding his Mormon religion and the past history of the Mormon Church?

RAVES TO THE FIRM auditing the Richmond County school system for recognizing that its board attorney is making far more money off the school system than Charles Larke ever did.

On Wednesday afternoon there

On Wednesday afternoon there was a blurb about Kroger on Deans Bridge Road being closed starting March 26. I came back to the site later and poof it was gone . Is this true or did someone flub up?

PTHS, good luck on That one!

PTHS, good luck on That one! Pollen is in the veggie plants you eat, fruit you eat, and without it flowers cannot produce fruit. Bees are a necessity in life whether you like it or not. Otherwise, food would be Scarce!

I know it was a long time ago

I know it was a long time ago but I remember going to that Kroger in 1984. The article says it opened in 1987.

Ch. 26 is to be commended.

Ch. 26 is to be commended. Not only to they put our safety first but they do it at great expense to them in that they forgo the money to be made with commercials during that time. Thank you Ch. 26 and their great team for caring so much about the community!

Why does the emergency alert

Why does the emergency alert system tell you to go to channel 4? It should say "there's a tornado in Aiken, take cover immediately" If you don't get to channel 4 soon enough, you have to wait til the spanish part cycles through.

I am so tired of black and

I am so tired of black and white. If Obaram is elected he is elected for his speeches and the beleif that he can do a great job. Why is it people think he would be elected because he is black, if he was white he would be a great speaker and he is saying all the correct things. Yes he is black and that would be wonderful but Obama is a wonderful speaker and is saying all the correct things that would chance what we are experiencing now from our present president. that is why i would vote for him and i know he would be a wonderful president. We are not suppose to be judged by the company we keep, we suppose to be judged by the person you are as a individual.That is why god is the only one to judge.

A thought for the day: "Don't knock the weather. If it didn't change once in a while, nine out of 10 people couldn't start a conversation."

hey Weather Groupies...They

hey Weather Groupies...They provide good information, Why? it's their job, how they get paid, TV ratings. If the ratings are high their advertisers have to pay more for their commercials $$$MONEY is the motive, not your safety though I am sure they care about our safety that is not their primary goal, it's RATINGS $$$ MONEY. Spending your life praising people for doing their job is what the majority of American's do. Take politicans they get schools, highways ect.. named after them FOR DOING THEIR JOB ! Why? To get re-elected, to keep their cushy & political power JOB safe. Everyone thinks they do it for the good of mankind BULL.. again..It's their JOB, a great, cushy, high power, perks galore, almost a GET OUT OF JAIL FREE CARD ! And again $$$ MONEY, POWER, GREED ECT.. This is the primary motive for their good deeds & most of you follow & admire them like the groupies they want you to be. Politicans are so sucessful because most of America's citizens are just like a heard of sheep just looking for someone to follow, to tell them what to do & if their life is not what they expected it to be, to tell them who to BLAME for it !!!

I just went to a lovely Easter service with our children's class at the local Church. It is amazing, that the children didn't explode, learning about the true meaning of Easter.....

I read

I read getaclue,pthomas&dramamamma's little rant so I say this to you & all others that have that thought ,maybe if you slow down &drive the posted speed limit ,get off the cell phone ,put down the cheesey love novel ,stop putting on your face you wouldn't feel the need to kill an animal. The family pet might have just gotten away,ran out the door when it was opened,pulled away from a little child. And you feel the need to kill it in front of the child or owner .what a big strong person you are !!! I think you must have had a bad childhood and now want to take it out on poor little animals . go and try to buy a life you need it so it seem you don't have one already

In my view, the bottom line

In my view, the bottom line of this Obama controversy is his judgement. It would be the same for me if Rev Wright were preaching the earth is flat. Now I see pics of BO with the new pastor & tapes of this guy spewing the same type of trash. BO's judgement in his 20 yr affiliation with this church, his dealings with Rezko, his "most liberal" senate voting record yet says he can bring Washington together, his lack of repect for the US Flag and Pledge do not come close to the qualities of judgement I want in a President.

In the spirit of some of the more ridiculous liberal comments to grace the AC pages this week, I'd like to quote Laurence J. Peter ~ "Against logic there is no armor like ignorance." Y'all have a nice day and play friendly-like w/each other...

Faith: :quote:We are not

Faith: :quote:We are not suppose to be judged by the company we keep, we suppose to be judged by the person you are as a individual:unquote: I am very happy to say I DO NOT KEEP COMPANY with anyone who is trouble or a bad influnce or just a terrible person, Why would anyone do this? Unless they have a lot more in common than they admit. Not being judged as a person thats fine but for a ELECTED POLITICAN...NO, they should be judged by the company they keep it's out responseability to judge them as American Citizen's & Voters. Don't judge them ! What a pittyful statement, I believe you have judged him..you judged & will vote for him as being Black & that's all that concerns you!

After watching Rev Wright

After watching Rev Wright talk about Sen Obama - it finally struck me who Barack reminds me of. Think of Steve Martin and his opening lines in the movie "The Jerk" ....

Barack Obama is not muslim.

Barack Obama is not muslim. If you have listened or paid any attention to what the man has said, you would know that. How can you hold Barack accountable for what his Pastor said?
