MR. CARL, of Savannah River Keeper Inc., is "surprised" to find trash in the Savannah River? If he's such a hot keeper, why didn't he already know? Besides, he's never been elected to keep the river that his group appears to think they, and they alone, own. Maybe he should just quietly watch the river from the perspective of nature rather than politics.

OBAMA CALLS socialism "opportunity." It's Obama's opportunity to become a dictator.

RAVE FOR THE Columbia County Sheriff's Department for holding a citizens firearms course. It is a great community service.

WHOEVER WAS IN charge of designing the new approach to Bobby Jones Expressway from Scott Nixon Drive should be fired. It is not clear at all.

RAVE TO THE CHILD who spoke up and told she had been touched inappropriately and the mother that cared enough to believe and file the necessary paperwork to put this person in jail.

A RAVE TO the gentleman who paid for two very senior citizens' dinner at Golden Corral on Oct. 29. Thank you.

SOME COMPLAINED THAT Sarah Palin can't pronounce nuclear. Maybe she has never heard Jimmy Carter pronounce it.

I WOULD LIKE to know how much money the city of Augusta could save if we got rid of Fred Russell. The only thing I've seen him do is propose raising our taxes.

I'M CALLING ABOUT Glenn Hills High School. I don't think Glenn Hills is a bad school, but I think the children that go there need some parents to guide them.

A RAVE FOR a salesman in customer service at Toys "R" Us. My grandson was looking for a Thomas the Train outfit for Halloween and she referred me to another store and I found it and I made him very happy

WE ALREADY HAVE socialism here in the United States. It's called Social Security, and if we're smart, we'll get rid of it finally and quit wasting the taxpayers' money.

Firearms safety, and the safe

Firearms safety, and the safe use of firearms should be a mandatory course in middle school. Even if you never touch one again.

Don't know if it is true or

Don't know if it is true or not but I heard from an accountant that now that the Dems are in control they plan to save Social Security by taking other government retirements you get and subracting it from your SSN payments. So if you are retired military and you get $1100.00 a month and you get 1700.00 a month from SSN you end up getting your $1100.00 from the military and only $600.00 from SSN. I did my 20 years in the military and I payed into SSN all my life. They plan on doing it with teacher and railroad retireees and any other govt employees. We all did our time and payed into SSN too. We should get the full amount of both due us.

I put my disclaimer on there that I didn't know if it was true or not LOL. I'm sure the only way to know for sure is to have someone on the inside or wait till trying to actually do it becomes public.

The thing you should be

The thing you should be worried about Ranter #8, is how much History Making Presidential Elections Actually Cost, Historically.

It's even worse factchecker.

It's even worse factchecker. One of the advisers to the Pelosi/Reid brain trust is proposing seizing 401(k)s and having the government manage them. Begins the end.

Maybe Sarah Palin should have Donated some of Her Clothes to Michelle Obama. Then she wouldn't have had to wear that feedsack to the victory celebration.

I'm not going to be able to retire if that happens. They will have to carry me out of work in a box. And there is nothing more dangerous than a 79 year old cop with a gun...LOL

I don't know why people Fall

I don't know why people Fall for the Rhetoric from politicians about Medicare and Social Security running out of money. I mean DUH, it's not like those funds are in a seperate "pot" anyway. Just another way they "Stick it to ya at the Drivethru"

PT and factchecker, You need to bite the bullet, and withdraw your 401K funds,and pay the early withdrawal penalty. That way, the Government will only get 30% of it.

Up 'til now, they couldn't touch your 401k until you did. I don't think you'll want to handle your money after Reid, Pelosi and Franks get through with it.
