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.

Well Kathy, stop playing

Well Kathy, stop playing games. It's obvious you think Aiken is better.As a lifelong resident of the CSRA, why would I want to live in Aiken county, instead of Richmond County? You don't think it's backwards to vote against a stimulus plan that will add 3,000 jobs to your county?What about turning down 700 million for roads ,schools and law enforcement? What about criticizing a thirteen dollar a week tax cut?I happen to think it's backwards. So do the South Carolinians who are ready to impeach Gov. Mark Sandford.Moron, may bother you, just like all the Obama names bother us.

Hey Rose, I think the cat's got Kat's tongue. Or maybe she is waiting on her support group.

Thanks Rose. The single

Thanks Rose. The single gunshot that I heard from a house backing up to mine the other night at 8:11pm really unnerved me. I don't think it hit anything, I didn't hear an impact, but sometimes you don't see the damage right away, you find a bullet in the wall later and have to think back to when that happened. So I call it in and put notes about the time, number of shots, close or far away, possible type of weapon, on the calendar date, for later reference if needed. And if there is any unusual activity, like speeding cars or unusual noises.

RCR she won't say that much

RCR she won't say that much to you unless her support group is here. With me it is a different story, but I am finished arguing with her. Her tongue really wags when she has too much wine.

RCR - Yes I have time to

RCR - Yes I have time to listen to "our" President and his cabinet. I have time to read proposed legislation, the U.S. Constitution and it's ammendments, the voting records of elected officials etc. THat is why I am so anti-Obama. Maybe if you would spend some time doing the same, you too could become edumacated and informed. w00t! Turn it!

baroness we have a man up the

baroness we have a man up the road from us who gets to shooting sometimes. I heard he target shoots, but it is mighty close to other houses. I have not heard those shots the past 2 weeks. Our neighbors closest to us are very good neighbors. We watch out for each other.

I could take the time to go

I could take the time to go through posts and see who all have called names on here, but I am not going to waste my time. converted calls names everyday, and so do many others. So give it a rest.

rcr... Speaking of names; do

rcr... Speaking of names; do these sound familiar? They should because the following are just a few of them from the posts of rcr: slimball; hillbilly; racist; racist ignorant; ignorant whites; clowns; bedwetters; scumbag; jerk; disenfranchised bigots;maggots. And that's just a small number of them. *** 'Only people who agree with their hate of _________ is suppose to call names' *** Keep up the comedy act because it's the best show in town. Now support group of rcr aren't you proud of your fellow follower? Match these names with any that others have used.

Rose - Just who are you

Rose - Just who are you addressing when you issue your "orders" like 'So give it a rest'. EVERY poster, bar none, that I have have read on here has an IQ much higher than you. You are only the mother to snakey he might listen to you, the rest of us are grownups with better intellectual capabilities. This includes RCR (of course), SMHwhatamess, Shivas, even Angie! Why do you continue to try and be so bossy?

Aw hush PTHS. Your brain is

Aw hush PTHS. Your brain is burned out, so sit on your porch with your can of bud and keep on thinking you rule the world. Maybe one day you will realize you have no smarts at all.

rcr... So glad you responded

rcr... So glad you responded with your usual acid reflux. I state information with FACTS and you say I'm whining. You saying I'm all of those continues to show your searching because you can't come up with informed, knowledageable and intelligent information. One thing I know is that I'm smarter than you in the fact that I have researched the information on prezbho. If you consider my posts 'the same tired line everyday' you don't read and understand. Keep up the good work because you show just who the prezbho followers are. Great comedy routine, keep on keeping on.

rose saying to someone else

rose saying to someone else 'one day you will realize you have no smarts at all' just doesn't compute 'at all'.

rose don't forget to jump to

rose don't forget to jump to the defense of rcr because he really deserves it, doesn't he? He's such a nice guy. Put yourself in the shoes of someone else and imagine those things were said about you. How would you react then? No name that others have called someone even begin to compare to those names and you heard him say I'm all of those. Do you really believe I deserve to be called those names just because I disagree with prezbho, his plans, his administration and his followers? See what type of group you've aligned yourself with. Is this what you really want?

Wow , I know the world is coming to an end. The Chronicle printed one paragraph about NHRA Drag Racing. I guess a purse of over 50 million dollars dosen`t deserve anymore than this.

gobama09ROLLTIDE That sounds

gobama09ROLLTIDE That sounds like a nice idea. Give me a bottle of Killian's Red and I might just go sit on the porch with PTHS and his loved ones and shoot the breeze. (that means talk, not shoot guns randomly into the air)...wink. I promise I won't kill the buzz PTHS! LOL.
