Rants and raves

Comments from our readers.

I THINK MICHAEL VICK should be traded to the Cleveland Browns. It would be interesting to see how the fans in their so-called "Dawg Pound" react to that.

OBAMA'S ALL about change, and I'm counting it right now.

A HUGE RAVE TO Heart and Vascular Center at University Hospital (and) to all the nurses and staff and my cardiologist Dr. Brent Edwards and his staff for all the care that was given to me in the past few days.

PRICE OF GAS HAS risen 10 cents a gallon in each of Barack Hussein Obama's first two weeks in office. At this rate, gas will cost $22.39 a gallon when he is finished "rebuilding the economy" in four years.

THE ACTIONS OF these people on the coliseum board are pathetic, ego-driven and worthless. They obviously have family of origin adult child issues. Make it mandatory that each must get psychological counseling.

RAVE, RAVE, RAVE! I don't believe it. The Augusta Chronicle printed a positive story concerning the use of a firearm. The story in point about Caleb Collins and his shooting ability. It was nice to show that all gun owners, users are not kill-crazy maniacs.

OBAMA IS WASTING no time in killing the U.S. economy. Along with his Marxist "bailout" bill, he's canceled energy leases that would have been used on land to drill for oil and natural gas.

CONGRESS TELLS LIES. The Ponzi guy tells lies, and now the peanut people are telling lies. Is there anybody out there that will tell us the truth?

IN REGARD TO the disabled lady that went to the movies and wanted to sit with her grandchild: I agree with her, and what's wrong with the ushers doing their job making sure that people who are not disabled aren't using those seats?

RAVE FOR THE CHRONICLE for bringing back The Lockhorns . Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I REALIZE IT'S A CHARITY, but First Tee is having Hootie and the Blowfish yet again to headline the event? Wouldn't it be nice to have somebody who has actually recorded an album in this decade?

RAVE FOR SEN. GRAHAM. He finally came to his senses to stand up for us.

THIS STIMULUS BILL is most embarrassing for Americans. We've elected these idiots and put them in the White House to run our country. None of them know what to do. They are totally at a loss.

So if none of them know what

So if none of them know what to do...when to the people stand up and do what's needed to bring about proper change? If Americans are so [filtered word] off at the government and have come to a realization that no matter who is elected to office they don't genuinely make decisions based on the greater good of the country but for other (seemingly unknown) reasons...what is keeping Americans from standing up for what they believe in? It has happened before and I think it won't be too far off before something happens that makes the citizens band together. After September 11th, 2001 everyone referred to themselves as "Americans" There were no African-Americans, no Latin-Americans, just Americans. As Americans we need to stand up and have our voices heard. Heck, in Georgia we have a SPLOST that gets VOTED ON when it comes to using tax dollars for a special interest. Our Federal Gov't doesn't bother, just does what it wants regardless of what the population wants. This stimulus is nothing more than corporate welfare. Those that have lost their jobs due to GM closing plants won't see them come back...even after GM receives billions of taxpayer dollars. To me, that's about four kinds of screwed up.

Yes, there's substantial buyer's remorse with the current president. It turns out skin color isn't a good enough quality for a leader. Who would have thunk it?

I do have to laugh at the

I do have to laugh at the "Obama is killing to economy" comment. The necessity for action on the economy, albeit one I don't agree with, existed when he stepped in office 1 month ago. It's not like he came in to office and said, hmmmm let's see what I can screw up. Whether it was Obama or McCain that stepped in 1 month ago, both would have to take some form of action, and both would result in it's fair share of supporters and nah sayers.

These rants and raves make no sense at all.. I don't understand why people are still complaining about the president.. he was elected by the people of the united states and we owe it to him to give him a chance.. he is working to repair our failing economy.. so stop your whining!!

So let me get this straight

So let me get this straight for the past 8 years you people were allowed to "whine" about Bush but we cannot object to a Pres. and his handlers leading us down into oblivion...Is this because ya'll are Super-Special Folks?...If it is so then it is so then just say so...:-) Honesty is a great characteristic...Although that is not something this new Regime has to worry about...

Good morning everyone! I

Good morning everyone! I agree with sgachief. I didn't elect Obama either. I will support him when he does something I agree with. Thus far, he hasn't. I will respect the office of the President, but the man filling those shoes needs to earn my respect. Thus far, he hasn't. Obama is a hypocrite and I just don't trust him. Period. IF you don't like the criticism, post on iloveobama.com. Otherwise deal with the cold hard truth here.

Lippy? I've got a list of

Lippy? I've got a list of stuff Obama's done that I totally agree with. For example: Recovery.gov. If you're gonna give away a trillion dollars, this is the kind of site you want people to use to try to track it. Unfortunately, transparency and full reporting of stimulus package usage stops at the second disbursement. Example: Ga gets $$ from Fed. Ga sends $$ to Augusta. Augusta does not have to provide data for transparency or accounting of final disbursements, no matter who or how many more levels is goes thru.

I love how dims love to tell

I love how dims love to tell all of us "I didnt vote for (INSERT REPUBLICAN'S NAME HERE), but I still supported them". They say that but in the last 6 months there has been thousands of oppurtunities to "support" them on various issues, and what do we hear form these so called "I supported Bush" people? Not one effing peep. Truly laughable! News Flash - Its a free country! You dont have to agree with the president! If one disagrees with his or her policies, that doesnt mean one cant speak up! By the way, give me some examples of your SUPPORT HYPO. Thanks

Hoss: Instead of Obama T-shirts, why not Obama Policy T-shirts. At least we'd know the details were being viewed by the sheep.
