Rants and raves

THE CHRONICLE SHOULD bring back the live chats that it did a few months ago. The one with Coco and the editor of Columbia County News Times was great!

RAVES TO EUGENE Robinson for his thoughtful columns, and raves to The Chronicle editorial staff for running them.

HEY, WHOSE NEWSPAPER racks were in the canal? The long gone Augusta Focus ? I hope the city can cash them in for the metal costs.

IF WE'RE IN A recession, why are the lines so long in restaurants?

THIS BUM dope taker, A-Rod, is crying all the way to the bank.

ANY ENEMY WHO'S taught to kill is hardly somebody who needs an "apology." Mr. Jilani writes that Islam teaches the "great and powerful are humble." When did you last see a humble Islamic terrorist?

REP. PHIL GINGREY'S abject, molasses-mouthed apology to Rush Limbaugh is a metaphor for the hypocrisy of today's Republican right.

OUR COUNTRY IS at an all-time low because a long time ago, we started buying things made overseas so all the factories closed down and now the companies are hiring illegals because they work cheap and they also do cheap work.

BOO TO OBAMA opponents who want to label the stimulation package as charity. It's not about charity, not even for the big financial fat cats. It's about businesses that produce jobs, jobs, jobs.

PROFESSIONAL SPORTS is no longer about sports; it's about criminals who get paid millions.

The person who sent in the

The person who sent in the rant stating that they believe the stimulus package is about jobs must have done so at 4:20 or they have simply lost their mind. As you can see, the car companies are already back and asking for more, just so they can keep their ridiculous union salaries and fees in place until the inevitable finally happens. Small Business is the backbone of America and provides the majority of jobs in the United States. These business owners are paying far more taxes than most as their profits are being slashed and they are not part of any stimulus package. Therefore, as they continue to struggle, people will continue to loose their jobs. As for the corporations, they are already over staffed with plenty of do-nothings just like all government agencies so corporations are using this as a way to simply reduce overhead and fire at will. The government on the other hand will keep those who do nothing on the payroll and hire more from the stimulus funds. This package as well as the ones passed under President Bush is nothing but theft from those Americans who work hard as hell to provide jobs for others to give to those who don't.

The fear O showed when he singled out Rush is the same fear a cockroach shows when the light is shined on him. Coincidence?

The current financial state

The current financial state of this country is comparable to the post Carter recession. We'll recover just fine if the federal government will quit "helping".

Boo to Obama, you are correct

Boo to Obama, you are correct it's not about charity, it's worse than that. It's more about spending us into socialism.

Poor old Rush. The Goebbels

Poor old Rush. The Goebbels of the Republican Party got his feelings hurt and needed an apoplogy. Apparently his "ego on loan from God" is a bit fragile.

Roland Burris tried not be from Chicago for as long as he could. I bet Obama just loves all the news out of there in the last 2 months.
