Rants and raves

Comments from our readers.

WASHINGTON ROAD PAVING? Huh! MLK Boulevard could use repaving, too, but then April visitors most likely won't be traveling that road. We just pay the taxes.

A RAVE FOR Mr. Wehunt, the lower school principal at Augusta Prep. I don't know if the afternoon pickup routine was his idea ... but it's fantastic!

BIG RANT FOR Bush. He just gave $1 billion of our hard-earned tax money to the wrong Georgia.

SARAH PALIN IS a successful woman, so why aren't the feminists rallying behind her? Because she loves and enjoys her children. To the feminists, children are a burden to be avoided. Poor feminists, women are no longer listening to their mindless drivel.

I AM NORMALLY not a college football fan, but I get sick at the fact that people in Georgia think the Bulldogs are some kind of gods and that Mark Richt is some kind of god.

A RANT TO REPUBLICANS, particularly those at the convention. While the Democrats were classy and did not talk down to the Republican Party, the Republicans have done nothing but be rude and disgraceful to them.

I AGREE WITH the senior from Evans High about the problem of honors parking -- and I'm a parent! My son earned his pass to park there and many selfish parents are ruining it for these hardworking kids.

BUSH JUST SENT "an extra" $1 billion to Georgia. That's a billion more of our money that doesn't yet exist, but Bush just pours it out like it's water from Gustav. Obama, with his communist tendencies (They're worse than tendencies) would likely do worse by actually helping the Russians arm, but that doesn't make Bush right.

HOW CAN OBAMA, a lifetime member of the Chicago political machine, ever even pretend to be for ethics reform?

BOTH GEORGIA SENATORS, Chambliss and Isakson, have come out foursquare against import tariffs. Import tariffs are what our Founding Fathers used to finance the original U.S. government. Thus, our present senators are fighting directly against our Founding Fathers. Which group do you trust?

The president can only do

The president can only do what congress and senate will allow. He/she is only a figure head like the queen of England. We as a country should really be careful in who we elect in congress and senate. It seems that they have good ideas while running, but then its all about them after they get in. It is a good ol boy goverment and it has to be changed by the citizens of this country. It is good to have someone with experience, but it seems they get richer and the citizens get poorer. Are they really working for the country or themself? HMMMMMMM.

It was really hard to follow but I think I got it. I would just add angie that whether you agree with him or not he is OUR president. Just like whoever is elected in Nov. will be OUR president.

dear kat, the government got

dear kat, the government got around that by changing the wording on the currency. i am sure you have heard of silver certificates...well they are currency that citizens could redeem for actual silver. but when we got off the gold standard they were reworded the currency to state the currency is "legal tender for all debts public and private" that in itself puts value not on the paper or what it can redeemed for, but the "word of the government" that the money is worth the value indicated on the note, nothing more

Hey Sawdust, Plz tell

Hey Sawdust, Plz tell angiesdad, that I do believe he has his discharge papers, Unfit for duty Dishonorable Discharge. Just yesterday he was saying, in the words of Kissinger, soldiers were dumb, and now he tells us he was one of those kissinger spoke of. This guy is unbelievable. And for his info, and others, real AMERICAN patriots dont believe we should talk about all things our military does, because it may put our citizens(soldiers and civilians) at risk from terrorists, which angiesdad doesn't seem to know exists. People in this or any other discussion should know that ANGIESDAD is a mental midget, who just spews garbage, and has no experience about what he talks about. But in his defense, many REAL AMERICANS, have given their life, or their service, so he could voice his opinion, and God gave us the discernment to know he is full of it.

angiesdud - I NEVER said

angiesdud - I NEVER said Bechtel was building classified buildings in Iraq. I said they were helping rebuild the infrastructure such a water purification facilities, restoring power, sewage treatment and schools. Those are not classified facilities. You are either misinformed or mislead by your party.

Not everyone follows Pro

Not everyone follows Pro football regardless of how the Falcons are playing, case in point Sanford Stadium hols upwards of 93,000 people where the Georgia Dome holds less than 70,000.
University of Tennessee holds over 100,000 the Titans around
70,000. Michigan over 100,000 Detroit Lions under 70,000.

After the presidential

After the presidential election, what are yall gonna have to talk about on here? I'm assuming it won't be about politics anymore, but there will always be the racist posts. Everyone on here seems to make everything about black or white. We're all HUMAN!
