Rants and Raves

  • Follow Metro

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.

ummm, PTHS, I think

ummm, PTHS, I think patriciathomas, like any other poster here, might not be the gender represented by the name, so might not be best to call that one g/f. Sometimes I think patriciathomas is two different people, maybe a married couple? posting under the same screen name. Who knows?

freedombelle, where did I say

freedombelle, where did I say I was not going fast enough to pass the car? You can pass a car going 50 at 55. You can pass a car going 55 at 60. But I don't need someone trying to go 80 in a 55 mile an hour zone trying to push me fast enough for me to get a speeding ticket. You're trying to tell me I'm going to get pulled over for going the speed limit and passing a car that is going slower than the speed limit? I doubt very seriously they ticket someone for remaining at the speed limit in Atlanta, unless they are blocking an emergency vehicle. Especially since traffic officers will head up the evening rush hour and PACE it at the speed limit for miles. I pass the car at the speed limit and get over as soon as it is safe to do so, then zippy can risk a ticket without me as a hood ornament.

Like to add to the thanks

Like to add to the thanks about the Harlem High Students, when my son was killed in 1985 in an accident, his wife was a Senior at Harlem. the out pouring of kindness by the ones that knew her and him, even thought he was not a Harlem graduate, was unreal. Glad to see that spirit still alive today in the school. And many today underestimate our young people and what they are capable of....

Thanks PTHS. Hope the officers chewed them out at least. That's dangerous. Bullets have to come down somewhere. I did finally get back to sleep about 3am. Glad I mowed the lawn yesterday afternoon. Dang it, phone's ringing...

A rant and warning to you gun

A rant and warning to you gun owners. Just got a call fro the NRA raising money to fight the anti-gun crowd in Congress's latest attempt to circumvent the SCOTUS. The DIM anti-gun crowd have drafted a bill that would require ALL guns to be registered with the feds, require that to buy a gun, you have to apply thru the feds, get finger printed and have a background check. If you move/change address, you have to notify the feds or face five years prison. If you want guns and want to keep that RIGHT and FREEDOM from this type fascism, contact your Congressmen/women and tell them to vote NO on HR 45. I don't EVER want some Bush basher on here to talk about shredding the Constitution. NO admin has done so much to destroy our Constitutional rights than the current DIMocRAT controlled Congress led by the #! Marxist, BimbObama. Ex post facto laws and bills of attainder and control of industry and banks are only the beginning. Be afraid, very afraid.

Let me remind you that FOX 54 or any other television channel can pick and choose whatever programming they deem unworthy to show as it is THEIR business and RIGHT.

PTHS, you mean to tell me you

PTHS, you mean to tell me you guys really sitdown a watch every move president Obama makes. I watched a little bit of the coverage, but there are too many things to do. Passing negative emails to incite further hatred of the president, is sick.No doubt, the miserable commentators on FOX news are still having a hard time dealing with their election day lost. The people that listen to that bull, don't need convincing. Also I didn't see anything in the paper about Gov. Mark Sanford requesting the stimulus money.The Chronicle censors news that it don't want to talk about.

RCR are you still getting that political email smearing our President and his administration? I received one Thursday night, so I blocked her address. I had told her over and over not to sent me any political email, and she would not stop.

Jack, typical gun nut talk.

Jack, typical gun nut talk. If you believe that foolishness, then you're too stupid to own a gun. You folks(sore losers) will do or say anything to take a shot at the president. And the childish Obama namecalling further erode the credibility you already don't have. I wonder why those who always tell me about namecalling, don't speak up now?

Hi Rose, no, I wouldn't dare give them my email address. They are going to have to have their hatefest without me. I'm very happy with the job president Obama is doing. He has already elevated our standing in the world.

RCR their view is they can name call all they want, because that is their personal opinion. But let a democrat call a name back at them, and they attack.

SC is a state. News in other states is important news. All one has to do is read the news and watch it on tv. News in GA is not the only news that affects us.

But how does Sanford's stance on the stimulus affect you other than positively, as you claimed the other day. I just don't understand the harping on it by people not affected by it, especially with such nastiness.

I would like to have the problems of those talking about the left lane. I have the bad luck to drive in 5 pm traffic when there is NO passing lane. Just 2 or 3 lanes all backed up and all moving whenever they can. I think folks might be confused between city streets and highways with higher speed limits. There IS a difference.
