Rants and Raves

  • Follow Metro

Comments from our readers:

NEXT TIME YOU come up behind a car that's weaving all over the road, don't prejudge them and think they're drunk. It could be someone on a cell phone.

A RANT FOR Augusta administrator Fred Russell for the hotel key card use for the Augusta Transit and allowing it to go on months and months after he was informed that it was getting out of hand. Driver Charles Goff should be given a $5,000 bonus out of his pocket.

A BIG RAVE FOR Aiken County police, second to none. We've got the best people in divisions of power there, and I believe that we should keep trying to get the gangs into jail where they belong, along with those that drink and don't wear seat belts. Our children are at risk.

WHILE I AGREE THAT pants drooping below the waist should be stopped, I also think many of the girls have passed the mark, too. I saw a high school student boarding the school bus in a tight-fitting, revealing tank top.

RAVE FOR THE CHRONICLE. I just loved the article on Legos that was in the paper Aug. 24. We need more creative articles like this in the paper. Keep up the good work.

A RAVE ABOUT the Hephzibah Police Department. I was riding on Highway 88 and I was very sleepy and I had run over the yellow line. The officer pulled me over and I was not drinking and he followed me 11/2 miles up the road to make sure I made it home. It was nice of him to do that.

IT'S NOT ENOUGH that they threw the taxpayers under the bus. Now they're fixing to throw us under the trolley!

A RANT FOR Columbia County commissioners. Don't understand why they can put sidewalks on Mullikin Road when we need sidewalks at the schools. Example: Evans Middle School on Hereford Farm Road.

I WOULD LIKE TO give special thanks to the person who found my telephone and turned it in to the Harlem Animal Hospital.

"There is none so blind as those who will not see!" seems to apply to ALL the Augusta-Richmond County Government.

I wonder if the looting has started in New Orleans yet, you can bet some will stay behind to steal...The government will get sued for not taking care of these criminals as they conduct their illegal endeavors...

Bush is sending another

Bush is sending another hurricane to N.O. to make a final impression on the black community before he leaves office. Fema is already busy and now that La. has a governor, the mayor of N.O. is even acting right. The superdome is being left shut down for this event. Fools congregating there will be on their own. (that's Bush's fault too)

Quote of the day (so far)

Quote of the day (so far) Mayor Nagin of New Orleans says: "It's time to be scared, it's time to be concerned, it's time to get your butts out of New Orleans". I think we've found a new candidate for Chairman of the A-RC Colliseum Authority......

I hope the left is over the shock of having to deal with Gov. Palin's ascension to v.p. candidate. Yesterday's panic posts were down right embarrassing. Maybe the Sunday morning talk shows will give some talking points to the choir.

If you disagree with Obama

If you disagree with Obama you are a racist. If you disagree with Palin then you are a misogynist.

Good Sunday morning all....I

Good Sunday morning all....I woke up breathing, that immediately put a smile on my face and a thank you to God in my heart...I am a happy camper...:-)To the ranter who was telling folks not to be overly concerned when a car is weaving all over the road because it may just be a cell phone; I say to you "Put a sock in it"...That person shouldn't be weaving like that if they are on a cell phone as they are a danger to others on the road...Also they may be ill and losing control of the car or they are drunk either way they are a danger to themselves and all others around them...Report them if they continue to weave...It is better to prevent an accident than to do nothing...

Let's make a politically correct statement and vote for Palin for VP and Obama as her press secretary. That way we are giving job preference to both minorities. :)

Why doesn't Columbia County

Why doesn't Columbia County require all new construction to build sidewalks at the site of thier construction? Oh that's right, it would cost Cross's friends more instead of making them more. Right now they can make money in the original construction and then again when the County hires them to build the sidewalks.

Finally a VP candidate with

Finally a VP candidate with no excess baggage. She has no favors to return to lobbyists, Washington insiders, big time contractors, the establishment. She's one of us. And she can tell all that expect contracts to be funnelled their way to go to hell. Go Sarah Palin.

This is to the people of

This is to the people of McDuffie County....WAKE UP....you are being raped by your county officials!! They have raised the value of my house by $50,000.00 in one year and I am sure that I am not the only one (and also it WILL be raised again because of the school issue.) Just because they want to build a new City Complex and name it after our retired Mayor!! They made the statement that if the new splost tax does not pass they will build the city complex anyway...I guess that means they will raise our property tax again??
