Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

WITH ALL THAT VACANT, unused, indoor space of the Regency Mall, couldn't we use it for some concerts or something? How about a convention or product expo facility? All those store spaces could be perfect for a vendor to display their products.

GERMANY AND JAPAN in World War II couldn't do it. The USSR during the Cold War couldn't do it; 9-11 couldn't do it. But it looks like the Democrat-controlled U.S. government will finally bring America to its knees.

RAVE TO THE WORKERS at Gracewood! I had the opportunity to meet the staff of Gracewood at MCG. I commend each of them for the love and care that they provide to each of the patients they care for.

A RANT TO REPUBLICAN politicians for their lack of bipartisanship in regard to the stimulus bill. When people won't spend, the government needs to take up the spending function so factories can increase production and provide jobs.

RANT FOR THE CURRENT admistration; the Republicans will return, and Barney Frank and Chris Dodd will be prosecuted.

THE ONCE BEAUTIFUL wooded area at Five Notch Road and Coventry subdivision has been cleared and roads established for so-called condos, and now it's just sitting there with no activity. How about digging up the roads and replanting the trees?

THAT WOMAN with 14 kids is really preposterous!

OUR HEARTS WERE TOUCHED with the kindness shown by the young boy at S&S in North Augusta. It is refreshing and encouraging to witness such acts of generosity by our young, the future of our country.

IT SEEMS LIKE A LOT of people are looking for a handout instead of working or even trying to find a job.

I DON'T WANT TO HEAR Augustans complain they have no money because of the recession. Go by a restaurant any Friday or Saturday night, and you'll see the wait.

FOR STATE POLITICIANS to hope to help the economy by loosening liquor laws is obscenely absurd. Looser laws means more drunks, means more missing their jobs, leads to less production, leads to fewer jobs, leads to less tax money for the state.

That is Crazy, Laney has a

That is Crazy, Laney has a good princpal. Laney has a quite school with no problems.Now there putting 8th graders in high school and new princpal that couldn't handle the school she was at. So taking Dr. Welcher out of Laney High and adding 8th grader sounds like trouble to me and i am going to take my child out of there, she has one more year and she will do that some where else. Even though i wanted her to graduate as a wildcat she can thank Dr Bedden for that..I taking her to a School in south Carolina. Thank you Dr. Bedden, for no support of our childern.

Let's see, TEE Center, Regency Mall, TEE Center, Regency Mall.
Regency TEE Center! What a wonderful Idea and large enough to host many events. Most places are booked over a year in advance, think about the added space and revenue this could bring, and all for the price of condemnation proceedings against the owner who is practicing demolition by neglect!

You have some nerve

You have some nerve complaining about republicans not being bipartisan. Was the democrats EVER bipartisan? Was Obama? I hope republicans NEVER vote with those idiots. I'm sick of paying for lazy, sorry, people that won't work - those that say "I gets a check". And not Hilary wants to send $900,000,000 to the people in Gaza? Why? That's our money - give it back to us.
