Rants and Raves

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.

We must remember that prezbho

We must remember that prezbho is already running for re-election. He has no idea how to do the job; just how to run for office. OJT has already been proven to not work in this case.

Listening to some of what he said yesterday, it sounds to me like he is running for Chairman of the EU.

PTHS you have just won the

PTHS you have just won the prize, not much of one in this stretched economy, for the best answer as to Pres. O's plan...The Euro is fast replacing the dollar as well as our own celebrity campaigning for the head of the New Word Government with Pelosi and Clinton highlighting the billboards...Obama may be the neck but Clinton and Pelosi are the heads...

andywarhol, you are right

andywarhol, you are right about the defibrillators. That's why proper training is needed. I, myself, would not want to be held responsible for making a decision to use it or not.

The "defibrillators in

The "defibrillators in question are AUTOMATED, they decide IF to administer a "shock" and/or when. Takes the guess work out of it for the lay-person. And the Pad placement instructions make it simple enough for anyone with picture reading skills to perform in a snap. Timing Is EVERYTHING with cardiac problems, especially Sudden Cardiac Death cases. To not have them in every public gathering place is more of a liability than having them.

Regardless of anyone's

Regardless of anyone's opinion about the Osbournes I think Fox is paying their bills so I believe they can choose to air the program or not. If you don't like it; write Fox. Nobody on here does their programming. If TV stations operated by my standards the news would be presented as scheduled whether sports was finished or not. That would give them some incentive to move it along.

How late is the Osbourne show

How late is the Osbourne show on??? Most kids should be in bed anyway. I loved the Osbournes when they were on does that make me a bad person?? but hey watch out America is changing we might be told what to wear next and when to wear it. My heart goes out to the family with the young boy that died in school, what I don't understand is that this is a pretty big place why didn't they have the defibs?? I am from little ole town of Punxsutawney, PA and all our schools even elementary schools have them. On another note enjoy the beautiful day and the sun is out. I think I might fire up my CHARCOAL grill and drive in the left lane the whole way to Wal Mart. Ranter get it right it is just not for passing what if I have to turn left?? I slow down on purpose when they come flying up on my bumper and laugh when they are beeping and flashing lights at me, but yet when they do pass me I am right there at the stoplight YOU GOT REALLY FAR BY PASSING ME

Thanks MartinezMom for that

Thanks MartinezMom for that link. After viewing it, some might think it's hilarious but when our children talk and act like this, we wonder where in the world did they learn it and why they act so disrepectful to adults. I'll agree that the time of evening it was to be shown, should have been way after young kids are in bed but to be honest, I have a 16 year old and would not want him watching something like this either. Yeah you can turn it to another channel but what about the children exposed to it that their parents aren't responsible enough to send them to bed at a descent time or concerned about what they watch on TV. I'm just glad the TV station had enough guts to remove it from viewing knowing good and well they were going to get a lot of negative comments about removing it.

I think what irratates people

I think what irratates people (and this is just my opinion) is when someone is in the left lane and someone is in the right lane, both going the same speed, and others who want to pass can't get around either car because they have the lanes blocked. Why be such a butt about things, either speed up and get around the car in the left lane or slow back some so you can get in behind the car in the right lane....you're both wanting to travel at the same speed. This allows those who choose to speed to pass in the left lane. Common courtesy on the road would reduce a lot of road rage out there.

Concerning the whole Fox

Concerning the whole Fox 54-Osbourne situation...Anyone who applauds Fox's decision not to air the Osbourne's show should be in an uproar over what they actually DID air. Star Trek Porm, "Meth" blonde air, and aroused dancers on Dancing with the Stars were all mentioned during the FIRST 5 MINUTES of TMZ. Where's the outrage? The whole situation is drenched in hypocrisy and ignorance. Fox didn't take any stand at all because TMZ was just as bad as the Osbourne show was! This is why individuals should be allowed to make decisions for themselves as to what they want to watch. Today, Fox is censoring an insignificant variety show. The scary part comes when one thinks about what they might censor in the future all for the sake of maintaining "community standards". When will you ultra-conservative bigots get it? You have no right to tell other people how to live their lives.

you people who think obama is

you people who think obama is better than pres. bush need to wake up. bush didn't go to another country and apologize and say we started this mess. obama i guess has done some great things like the record low drop in the stock market when he went into office and the highest umemployment in history. obama has spent more money then all the pres. before him together. pres. bush said it's not time to leave iraq . obama said he would bring the troops home which was just another one of his lies . obama was going to change the stymlus package instead he increased it.he is doing bush's idears because he has none of his own. hussein obama should stay in washington and stay off the tonight show and work on rhe economy and jobs.

baroness if you aren't going

baroness if you aren't going fast enough to pass the other car, why are you even trying??It is meant to be a passing lane but you have to judge your speed and determine you are going faster than the other car..This happened to me and about a dozen other cars on I-20 near Atlanta and a State trooper came with his light flashing and stopped the car in the left lane..They don't like people causing a log-jam either..All of us had to pull over in the right lane and let the trooper pass..He pulled the driver on to the median..Then the traffic got back to an even flow. Bad attitudes cause "road rage." We all need to be more courteous when driving..
