Rants and raves

BIG STORY ABOUT "Funding hinges on legislative clout.'' How sad that even in state government, nothing is done because it's absolutely constitutional and necessary. Rather, things get done because of "clout."

JIMMY CARTER'S EGO continues to threaten the U.S. and Israel. What an arrogant dope!

WAY TO GO COLTS! Augusta should be proud to have another winning team!

WHY IS THAT Augustans are always the crazy drivers during the Masters?

DOES ANYONE KNOW IF Paul Broun records or listens to the responses roared into the phone each time some unsuspecting constituent picks another of his continual aggravating recorded messages?

TO THE RANTER on Ted Turner giving money to the church to fight malaria: Do pray for Ted, but please also pray for yourself. Apparently Ted knows more about Scripture than you do, friend. Jesus clearly tells us that our job as a church is to feed the hungry, heal the sick, comfort the afflicted, and more!

THE ONE THING I have noticed about The Chronicle format change is less news and more advertisements.

BILL KIRBY SAYS Bill Wood gives this fact: "There are ... 4,998 types of snakes in Georgia." He omits the fact that all but 4,995 of those are politicians.

A RANT FOR THE "ELDERLY PEOPLE WRITING CHECKS" Are you kidding? I'd rather wait on someone writing a check, than wait on someone with five screaming kids using a "quick" food stamps credit card! Get over yourself and wait! You will be old one day too!

I READ THE ARTICLE on Harrisburg and I am thankful we have people like Butch Palmer, who is trying to clean up our neighborhood. And Betty Beard not taking the petition seriously. If the ministeries were still in the the Laney Walker and they were having these problems, her name would have been the first on the petition. She was put in office to help all of her district, not just the Laney Walker area.

Every year since high school,

Every year since high school, my brother and his buds convene in Augusta to play an annual football game. Maybe we should do that with the R&Rs - everyone show up in your team colors!

I have a comment about all

I have a comment about all the negative Southern Baptist comments. I am a Southern Baptist and I have been all my life. I tithe when I can, but I can rarely afford to give money to my church. I have NEVER been asked to give or to give more. I do, however, contribute a lot of time to my church instead of money. There are many in my church who contribute nothing (no money, no time). They would NEVER be denied membership or asked to give or do more, nor would the color of their skin matter to anyone. In fact, as an almost entirely white church, we actively pursue potential members of other races and rejoice together when they attend our services. We have members who can barely make ends meet (and only manage to do so BECAUSE of help from our church) and we have members who can (and do, on occasion) support the entire church budget with one check. If you are down on churches, you just need to find the right one, if you are so inclined, there are good ones out there who will love you no matter what.

Wise, I am sorry to hear

Wise, I am sorry to hear about what happened with your dog. I think its really sad. Its lousy that u cant do anything about it. My kids and I were just looking at an ad for Molly's this evening and were thinking about going to check out some dogs but there is no way that I can go there after your experience. Thanks for sharing. Be blessed and have a good nite, people.

Wise, I too am sorry to hear

Wise, I too am sorry to hear what happened. But I would like more information. Like how soon was your dog adopted after he was lost? Did he have a microchip that is available to help dogs and cats to be returned to their owners? Our vet has worked to get that available throughout the CSRA. The chip is so small it is injected via a hypodermic needle and the information about the ownership of the pet is on a nation wide data base. All animal rescue and control units should have scanners to check for the microchips so that lost animals can be reunited with their owners. Last I knew, the cost was about 25 dollars for the chip injection. Also his rabies tag should have given them information. Was he not wearing a collar with his tag?
