Rants and Raves

  • Follow Metro

Comments from our readers:

IN RESPONSE TO: "I have a really bad feeling about the next president ..." Getting our country involved in an unnecessary war, sitting on his "laurels" for an entire week while one of the biggest cities is flooded and totally wrecking the economy were all fears listed. Aren't these all things that Bush did? Am I just missing the sarcasm here?

I AM SO ASHAMED of Augusta right now regarding these whiny rants about Barack Obama. We are so behind the times down here. People need to get with the program and realize Mr. Obama can bring a different flavor to our country that is supposed to be a mixture of many different ethnic backgrounds.

DO WE REALLY WANT to accept this socialism pill sitting down?

IF THE COST OF gasoline affects the cost of other items, and the cost of gasoline decreases, can we expect that the cost of those other affected items will decrease?

RANTS & RAVES is full of hateful thoughts about the results of the presidential election. Can we still call this a Christian nation?

PRESIDENT BUSH HAD a Republican-controlled Congress during the first six years of his administration. During that time he did not veto a single bill. Democrats have had a slim majority for less than two years. Why do some blame the Democrats for the economic mess?

THIS IS A RANT to your newspaper. Ever since that socialist communist was elected president, you've been featuring his picture on the front page every day. I don't remember President Bush's picture being on the front page every day after he was elected. Print this if you got the guts and courage to, 'cause you're lilly-livered just like the rest of the communist Democrats.

IT'S REALLY A SHAME that the Rants & Raves is full of rants towards Obama. Whether you like him or not, he has made history for the United States of America.

TO THE 16-YEAR-OLD who thinks Bill Clinton was a horrible person: Well, you don't work and pay taxes. What do you think of President Bush? Is he a horrible person for putting us in a deep, dark hole?

IT IS NOT RACIST not to vote for Barack Obama. If J.C. Watts had run for president, many of the people who refused to vote for Obama would have voted for J.C. Watts. We simply do not want a socialist dictator as president.

THIS IS A BIG RAVE to Augusta's own Lady Antebellum on the award for Country's Top New Artist. We are so proud of you.

Look, we didn't do the best

Look, we didn't do the best job as Republicans when we had controll and although it seemed to get worse under the Democratic Congress we lost. Support our President but not many of the ideas thus put forward which appear at face value to be socalism. Give him the benefit of the doubt, pray for him and continue to support our country as we should. Don't fall prey to the pettiness and be looking for our leaders of tomorrow who will once again bring true conservative values and fiscal responsibility along with national security to the office and we will be givien another chance to correct our many wrongs. The hatefull comments against our President are so uncalled for and just because others have said hateful things against President Bush does not justify the negativity.

The real shame for Augusta is

The real shame for Augusta is that both sides are so totally obsessed with refusing to give an inch and with name calling and playing the blame game, that they can't accomplish anything constructive. If there was a spirit of give and take and tolerance on both sides, all would go a lot better. A problem with this generation is that every one expects the other guy to be tolerant of their opinions, but are totally intolerant of the other guys opinion. Just look at the situation with the Gays in California, the majority spoke and the Gays didn't get their way, so now they are displaying their intolerance by being militant and breaking the law.

Some of these ranters

Some of these ranters wouldn't know what socialism was if it bit them on the butt. Don't know much about dictators, either. It must be tough waking up everyday and having to look at the world with such narrow vision. Go read some books instead of listening to Limbaugh, people. Try to educate the density right out of your brains! Become better informed on all matters. Bush had his opportunity, and he used it to enrich his buddies in the defense industry instead of governing. The man hasn't a moral leg to stand on. Obama a socialist dictator? That's a reach even for people with no sense at all. You people are stewing in an unproductive cauldron, getting further and further behind.

Gays being militant and

Gays being militant and breaking the law? What are they doing? Rolling up in a pink Prius, throwing Skittles out the window and screaming "Taste the Rainbow, beeotches!"? I don't see why gays don't see the problem with them having equal rights. Look at it this way. A heterosexual couple gets married, has kids, years pass, and they get divorced. At that point you have two people that have familial ties to the children via DNA...and two people that are both obligated to the children. If two lesbians decide to adopt a couple of Asian kids (I've seen this in Augusta - two white women with Asian kids) so they can have their version of a family...what happens when the relationship between these two women falls apart? You're left with a situation where neither woman is the maternal parent to these kids...does one woman sue the other for child support? Do they send the kids to a home? Instead of looking at this as a matter of equal rights people need to see the big picture and understand that the ramifications are MUCH larger than just the rights of the gay couple to have a fancy wedding.

Actually Lobo, its easy to wake up everyday with narrow vision. It is the effort to become informed that is hard. Of course, this lazy bunch always has PT to tell them what's what.

If you think Augusta is the only town expressing opinions about O that you don't like, go to the Wall Street Journal or any other paper in the U.S.
It's not just Southerners feeling this way. I just wish all the Republicans would have got out and voted.

M&J - That has to be one of

M&J - That has to be one of the most rediculous arguements I have ever seen concerning gay marriage. Couples, yes even hetrosexual couples adopt children too. If the marriage or union does not work, they are still obligated to act as co-parents which can mean shared custody or one parent having primary custody and the other paying child support. The law is not suppose to favor one gender parent over the other in matters of child custody so what would it matter if both parents were the same gender? While less common in my generation, my children have had plenty of friends with same sex parents. In many cases, those families are more loving, supportive and active in their children's lives then some hetro couple/families. The biggest challenge for the children of same sex parents is growing thick skin to endure the hurtful comments and ridicule of people who believe it is their duty to judge others.
