Rants and raves

YOU WANT A FREE CAR, a free nanny and a helicopter? Just fill out a job application to be a bailed-out Wall Street banker or a Congress person. Remember, everything is free for everybody except for taxpayers.

WHEN OUR BRAND-NEW president was campaigning he promised to bring our troops home if elected. Now he's ordered thousands of additional troops to Afghanistan. This is not what I would call honesty.

A BIG RAVE FOR Michelle at LensCrafters. She is so friendly.

YOU ARE RIGHT, Sen. Graham. You are not an idiot to accept the stimulus money. You are stupid, though, for voting against it.

IT COSTS A LOT of money for Obama to fly around the country to meet with his idolizers to feed his ego.

I DON'T SMOKE anymore, but I still think that the cigarette tax is the most unfair tax this country has ever levied.

THIS IS A RANT to all the retired personnel with the Aiken County school system. Move over gracefully and let the younger generation take your place. They need jobs.

RANT FOR THE LADY at Food Lion that had a cart full and three kids. Paid for them with a food stamp card, then paid for cigarettes and beer and wine with a $100 dollar bill. That's not really why I'm upset. What I'm upset about is then she went across the street to the liquor store, paid for that with another $100 dollar bill, and she left her three kids in the car while she was in the liquor store.

WHY WOULD Georgia Power customers have to pay more for something that they haven't even started building yet when Georgia Power is the biggest bill we have in the mail so far?

GEORGIA AND THE REST of the South need to secede from the Union. People are fed up with Washington's bad decisions.

THANK YOU, Augusta Chronicle, for all that you do for our community. You do what lawyers can't do. Plus you are a lot cheaper than lawyers with all their fees.

I WANT TO SEND a huge rave out to the respiratory department at Doctors Hospital for all the care that was given to me while I was a patient there last week.

BARACK OBAMA IS president -- mine and yours. So get over it, you whining Republicans. It's a new day, so deal with it.

rose... why don't you stop?

rose... why don't you stop? You ask for everything you get. Let it go. Go talk with your husband of 42 years since he's better company.

I wish I had a husband of 42

I wish I had a husband of 42 years who I could talk to and hang with. That would be so cool. Never take it for granted.

Told ya she runs when she

Told ya she runs when she doesn't have a good answer. She can only converse with someone who agrees with her and doesn't challenge her mentally. Poor woman :(

The older and the more feeble

The older and the more feeble we get the easier it is to take the plunge into oblivion. I am sure that if I get very much older and/or debilitated ...in other words if my quality of life is such that I wish to end it no one better try to stop me because I would not think twice about taking them with me. Remember fundmentailest Christians get an asbestos body to burn in for eternity. Have a pleasant day and pass it on.

Nowhere in the Bible does it

Nowhere in the Bible does it say that suicide is a sin.

Rose is 60. You conservatives are dumber than a bucket of rocks. No wonder why you were swept out of power.
