Rants and Raves

Comments from our readers:

I DON'T BELIEVE that President Obama is an empty sack, but even if he is he's much better than the one we just had in office.

AT EVERY CHANGE of the traffic light at Bobby Jones and Washington Road, autos coming off Bobby Jones run the red light. Is the sheriff's department waiting for more deaths before ticketing?

I KNOW THAT money is tight in the school systems right now, but I would gladly hold some fundraisers to make sure that there are defibrillators in every gym out there. I don't know if North Augusta Middle has one or if it would have helped in this situation, but as a mom my heart is so full of empathy for the Fox family. Please know that there are people out there who feel for you and pray for you at this time.

A HUGE RANT to all the drivers cruising in the left lane. The left lane is for passing. Get over!

SO I JUST finished watching American Idol, and I think I'm going to see the new Osbourne variety show next. Then there is a ticker at the top of the screen that says Fox 54 will not air it because it "does not meet our community family standards." What?

RANT TO FOX TV for taking off the Osbournes and replacing them with a TMZ show talking about Star Trek porn. I heard more adult language and subject matter from TMZ than anything bleeped out on the Osbournes. Get off your moral high horse, Fox. If parents don't want the kids watching Ozzy, they can use something called the remote -- just like I did when TMZ came on instead.

THIS IS A RAVE to Fox 54 for not airing the new TV show Osbournes: Reloaded. We appreciate you taking a stand against this vile show.

I JUST WANTED to let the students of Harlem High know how proud I am of them. Not only did they plan a memorial service for their friend, who died tragically, they were very well behaved. It was nice to see the good in these teenagers. They put their differences aside as they came to mourn their friend.

ALL YOU PEOPLE who plan to protest at the tea party on April 15: Go ahead and protest the $1.6 billion earmarked for SRS. That's 3,000 jobs that will be created for our area. Do we really need 3,000 jobs in this economy?

EVERY DAY another news story about the total confusion of the Coliseum Authority. This is typical of anything governmental. Has government ever done anything that was anything but confusion?

THIS IS A RANT about "saggy" pants. It looks like people would have enough self-respect to want to look decent, but self-respect has to be taught at home first. When the parents don't care, the kids don't care.

I TRIED to go to sleep!

I TRIED to go to sleep! 2:53am 2 gunshots far away and a third one was closer, somewhere around Lumpkin Road and Burns Memorial Methodist Church. Was going to ignore them until the third one was closer, so I called them in, didn't know what else to do. Hope nobody is getting hurt. These are subdivisions all around here, why in the world are people firing off guns all the time??? Little grey sedan quietly swooped through here right after that. Earlier, there was a pickup truck and an older model car parked on the side of the road together, they had no business being there, setting off the nearest houses' dogs barking to wake the dead and me, too. Thanks a lot. When I looked out, they took off.

Hmm. The left lane is for

Hmm. The left lane is for passing, true, except when someone needs to turn left. Also, if I'm passing someone else and I'm going the speed limit, I don't have to go over the speed limit just because you are riding my bumper. I wouldn't speed even if you were paying for the ticket. The only reason I would speed would be in a life and death situation. But I will get over as soon as I pass the slower traffic without speeding. Unless you have flashers on because you have an emergency of your own or are on official business with lights and sirens, holdjerhorses.

where does it say left lane
Unpublished

where does it say left lane is for passing?? come up behnd me at 80 MPH and get ready to slow down cause i dont drive at ur pleasure. If I am in the left lane it is because there are slower drivers than me in the right lane and i have the privilage to ride where ever as long as I obey the law, show me the law that says "left lane is for speeding" and then i will get over

I'm curious how the ?Raver?

I'm curious how the ?Raver? knows that "The Osbournes Reloaded" is a "vile show" if it's not broadcast in this area? Playing with Ouija boards and crystal balls to divine the content of something you have never seen smacks of Pagan rituals! G'mornin, booger and all y'all! Enjoy the nice weather!

Just knowing what the Osbournes have done previously is enough to know it won't be a family show.

Hussien is out giving the country away and all people are worried about is a TV program about a 60 year old drug addict.I would say our priorities are just a LITTLE bit off.

I agree with the comment

I agree with the comment about having defibrillators in school gyms. It would be a good idea to have one at each school. You never know when someone, even an adult in the school may require the use of one. Of course, people must be trained properly to use them.

Bunch of sanctimonious

Bunch of sanctimonious wankers you lot are. Are your TV's stuck on Fox? Do they turn themselves on? Are they impossible to turn off or unplug? If you don't like it - don't watch it. The same goes for this comment section. I personally don't watch it regularly either, but on the occaisions I happened I catch it, I enjoyed it - they deal with real life issues. I despise censorship and control of my choices if what I choose to do doesn't affect the life, liberty and happiness of anybody else. Why infringe on the rights of those who enjoy the show when there are other choices available?

OH come on, are we back to

OH come on, are we back to this "because I don't like it no one can watch it" BS. Turn the tv off, throw the tv out, I don't give a s&*T. But I will watch what I want to watch in my home, I will listen to anything I want to in my car and there isn't a dang thing fox can do about it.---------------And for those of you who think it's vile and not for famlies, I tend to disagree, I have never seen any osbourne show, but this is what I know for a fact, your tastes and opinions (OPINIONS) about what is suitable for your family is only valid for YOUR family. --------------Climb down off your cross, someone who is cold can use the wood.-------Mornin PT, tell CBBP Mom said HI.

I so understand PT, I am so sick of the moral majority preaching to me, I have a mind, common sense and an education, I can make up my own mind. I can also tie my own shoes, cross the street by myself and call 911 if some one gets hurt, see I a big girl........................LOL

'I DON'T BELIEVE that

'I DON'T BELIEVE that President Obama is an empty sack, but even if he is he's much better than the one we just had in office.' *** I can hardly wait to hear the FACTS that PROVE 'he's much better than the one we just had in office.' *** Please enlighten us.

momofthree if the moral

momofthree if the moral structure in this nation was resurrected just a very small tad we would certainly see less of the new world of desensitized youth as well as middle age killing each other off...The youth of this nation do not care about the consequences of their actions as they are weaned on viewing, listening and playing at living that violence, mass killings is normal. They seem to live with one ideology...Clearly believing that one has the right and, indeed, privilege to worship what seems to be good for themselves first and last...Kneeling at the Cross is not such a bad thing when faced with what is currently happening each day in this nation...What is so wrong with wanting to see less violence, lust, drinking, as well as a generation who has not one ounce of caring for anyone but themselves?...

Defibrillators are needed,

Defibrillators are needed, but what kind of liabilities come with them? I can already see someone getting sued for using one and it turns out it wasn't needed. Also, would that have saved the young boy? I remember them saying he had a heart deformity. On to fox not airing the Ozzy show. What happened to this being a free country where I can choose what I want to watch. Those of you on the moral high ground can change the channel! Also, when did the community, which you claim to represent, vote on this?

and the Ozzy show is after

and the Ozzy show is after American Idol? Shouldn't children be in bed by that time? My seven year old son is in bed by 830, but I guess that's one of the many reasons I don't have the same problems most other parents in this area have with their children.

Good morning everyone!..Yes

Good morning everyone!..Yes it is a beautiful day out there...heading to Columbia for a plant sale at the fair grounds......on a sadder note watching barry bend over and take it in the rear for the europeans was disgusting....his "yes massa" attitude is embarrassing and makes the Country look weak and defeated....it seems he lost his backbone and perhaps meeechele could take over for him I believe her "jewels" are bigger.
