Rants and raves

Comments from our readers.

I, FOR ONE, am just glad to see The Lockhorns are gone. They were old and dated and tired, and I would just ask that maybe the Argyle's Sweater be moved someplace where it's a little bit larger to read, cause it is kind of a large strip, and it's printed at about the size of a postage stamp.

RANT FOR THAT truck driver that almost ran over me on Highway 56. He tooted his horn so I went ahead and ran the red light so he didn't run into the back of me. Where are the police on Highway 56, and what's going on with these so-called professional drivers? Something needs to be done.

I DON'T AGREE with the person claiming George Bush did a good job. To me, his job performance is down there with Herbert Hoover's.

I'M SO TIRED OF reading about all the cigarette smokers crying like a baby. Don't you realize that cigarettes kill people? Why don't you wake up and smell the roses, or one day you'll be smelling the roses at your funeral.

TO THE PEOPLE RAVING about Bush for having a job well done, remember, the Sept. 11 attacks happened on his watch and he did have intelligence at the time.

OBAMA'S BEEN president a week and a half now, and I have yet to see any improvement in the economy.

I HAVE A RAVE FOR Mary Francis. She's our aide and she has taken beautiful care of us for years, and I would just like to let her know we love her.

I KNOW YOU WON'T print this, but if the so-called stimulus package passes, and the United States currency collapses, then the United States government will be overthrown.

I'M CALLING ABOUT THE Republicans. All they do is look after their pockets. Democrats are willing to sign for the stimulus package, but the Republicans don't want to do that. I think there's no good Republicans up there. They need to go ahead and sign it, because everybody's out of a job and they need their money. I think it's the best thing they can ever do.

IT'S A TERRIBLE, terrible shame that in most cases a person operating a motor vehicle and not wearing a seat belt has to lose their life to prove that they should have worn one, and the latest example is the police chief of New Ellenton.

The stimulus package is no

The stimulus package is no more than a federal free-for-all. It was with the first one and it will be with this one with the money going to those that didn't know how to manage their finances before the packages. Oh and don't forget those that spent it on perks.

#6 doesn't see any

#6 doesn't see any improvement in the economy yet because he hasn't received his promised checks yet. Get used to it they aren't coming. One check maybe on its way soon but don't expect any more. They are going to organizations like ACORN instead of to the people.

To ranter #9 - It's not

To ranter #9 - It's not Republicans, it's democrats and a FEW republicans. Notice the Bush stimulus package was passed by democrats and a few republicans. The Obama package was passed in the house by democrats only.

Of course democrats are

Of course democrats are willing to sign for the stimulus package as the majority of their voters will benefit. All non-working citizens who live in section 8 housing year after year, use federal food stamps, receive tax credit checks when they don't even pay taxes, and prefer welfare instead of getting a job. And yes, there are many more whites on these no good do nothing enabling programs than any other race so this isn't a put down to any race only the lazy do nothings in our society that are taking from those who work hard each and every day.

I wonder what kind of an I.Q.

I wonder what kind of an I.Q. test you have to fail to get an entry printed in the Rants and raves section? The AC always seems to save the lamest entries for the Sunday effort. Today is no different.

I think ol'Al Needs to give his prize back. And maybe we could offer up the hide on his tongue to the God of Nature via the nearest Flagpole we can find to stick him to!

Can you believe adults find the comics important enough to whine about day after day. You would think there would be something more urgent in their life.

icanusethat in you arrogant

icanusethat in you arrogant answer if you have done as much driving as you state then you yourself know your stay in one lane only is not a viable option. So I seriously doubt you have much experiance in driving them only playing with them and calling it driving them. When I retired I had almost 7 million safe miles, and still drive Tour buses part time. So until you have a knowledge of the big rig and can make a viable comment yours are useless.
