Rants and raves

Comments from our readers.

A RANT TO PEOPLE who say guns kill people. True, but someone has to pull the trigger. Cars kill, water kills, fire kills, ropes kill, food kills -- so on and so on. We can't blame everything.

A RANT TO PEOPLE who worry about other people's yards. Just mind your own property, and let the ivy grow where it will.

DO PEOPLE NOT REALIZE this is not December? Take your stupid Christmas lights down!

A REPORT OF A BEAR spotted in Augusta has been the most e-mailed story in a long time. This indicates that Augustans are eager to experience the wonder and the magic of exotic animals. Get off of your hump, Downtown Development Authority. We want camels on the canal now -- a lucrative enterprise for Richmond County.

WHO APPOINTED Al Gore "Environmental Czar?"

HILLARY SAYS 18 million women voted for her. Now if each of those women gave $2 to her campaign her debt would be wiped out.

PLEASE STAY AWAY from the scratch-off lottery. I watched my aunt blow $500 and only won $40. Don't be stupid.

RANT TO The Chronicle for the front page article on July 18. Strom Thurmond was not from nor ever did anything for Georgia. On this side of the river it's still Clarks Hill Lake.

AS AN AVID CYCLIST WHO rides Mullikin Road weekly, I can personally testify that motorists drive in excessive speeds on that road. Maybe the Sheriff's Department could patrol the area more frequently to catch speeders and save lives.

A RANT TO PEOPLE who think lowering the speed limit will save gas. No it won't. No one drives the limit now. That will just allow for more speeding tickets.

Ban everything! No cars =

Ban everything! No cars = plenty of cheap gasoline. Get more camels! Lottery is still a tax on folks who failed their 5th grade math CRCT. Hillary who? Al Gore appointed himself with help from Michael Moore. It conserves personal energy to keep the lights up all year. Bicycle riders on roads with no bike lanes drive at an unfsafe low speeds and impede traffic. So, yes, include bikes in the ban. If the lake gets much lower, the town of Clark's Hill will return. I think that just about covers it. G'mornin Namasta and rest of the world. I need to go water my lawn now so that my neighbor doesn't have longer grass than I do.

To the rant about their yard,

To the rant about their yard, I'll bet the grass is knee high and you have 2 non-working cars parked in the yard as well. My garden isn't in perfect condition but I do keep it up, you should do the same.

PTHS, you are a hoot this

PTHS, you are a hoot this morning, need a camel? Go to Saudi, they sell them dirt cheap! (Use caution though, they spit if they don't like you). I wouldn't keep buying lottery tickets from this area, they seem to have run dry of winning tickets and you need to go far away to find a winner anymore, the lottery is getting desperate for money you know.

RE the lottery, I know this

RE the lottery, I know this may come as a shock to some, but it everybosy won, the lottery would loose money. Patricia, you can only leave the Christmas lights up if you have a car on blocks in the front yard.

Besides, why do I care if you

Besides, why do I care if you have Christmas lights up on your house, yard or anything. You can even keep Santa and the reindeer up on the roof top if ya want to..........and your dead grandma perched up in her rocking chair in the basement.

Don't worry about all the Christmas lights. This is Georgia and they just never catch up, have always been behind. Christmas lights, education and the list goes on. Just pity them.

I have said this before

I have said this before Mullikin road drivers are bad, I drive that everyday and even during school the drivers will NOT slow down to the speed limit, they keep on going like there is no school zone.
