Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

THIS IS A RANT about child support enforcement. The deadbeat dads are not being made to do what they are supposed to. The judges say miss a payment and you get 30 days, and it's not being enforced. What are we to do?

BUSH HAD his Iraq war. Obama's got his Afghanistan. Give it a couple years and you won't know the difference. Nobody's ever won in Afghanistan, going all the way back to Alexander the Great. Ask the Russians.

THIS IS FOR the person who questioned President Obama saluting a Marine guard before boarding a helicopter. Doesn't he realize that a president is commander-in-chief of the armed forces and it is protocol? Where has he been with all the presidents in the past? I can't believe it.

A BIG RAVE to President Obama for cleaning up eight years of mess. He has done more in 80 days than Bush did in eight years. That's what happens when intelligent people run the nation.

RANT TO ALL the thieves in Augusta. I was at work and you broke into my truck and attempted to steal my radio until my alarm went off. You damaged my truck to the tune of $150 and achieved nothing. Because of you I have purchased a gun. Please come and see me again.

HEADLINE: 'OBAMA maintains control over banks by refusing to accept repayment of TARP money.' How can Obama not accept repayment of those loans? There might be a penalty for early repayment, but not no repayment.

THIS IS A RANT to the lady driver with a child in her car driving while she was texting! You were running all over the road and could have wrecked and killed not only your child but someone else.

RANTS: LUMPKIN ROAD from Butler High School past the Richmond Hill Road intersection. The lines in the road are almost invisible. When are they going reline the road?

SMOKERS OF THE WORLD unite. We've got to guarantee we've got enough votes behind us to start voting some of these representatives and congressmen out of office. We got to do this now.

THIS IS A RAVE for Augusta, Ga., my hometown. I have traveled the Southeast delivering a hometown barbecue sauce for over 10 years and have experienced different cities and towns, and I'm always proud to say that Augusta, Ga., is my hometown. I've also lived here for over 50 years and I wouldn't live in a mansion anywhere else.

WHAT IS UP with having to pay a local job agency $185 to find you a job? I think there is something wrong with having to pay to get a job. Times are hard. Who has $185 when you don't have a job?

i agree about paying an

i agree about paying an agency. besides that, they do nothing for you but take your money. they should move out of georgia. there are other places to go to assist you in finding a job without having to pay out of pocket expenses. this is a get rich quick scheme for a slick agency. (or so they think)

To the custodian parents who

To the custodian parents who complained about deadbeat dads go get a job what can you do with $30 dollars a week after child supports agency deduct their fees and the state of Georgia get their percentage from when you received welfare.Its a waste of time unless you receive child support from a jurist,doctor or a lawyer.

Ahh, Jena- you get it! If someone gets a welfare (TANF) check, then the noncustodial parent owes that money back to the state. That's the way it should be.

pseudo President barry is

pseudo President barry is without a doubt one of the most dispicable excuses for a leader that we have ever had...he makes jimmy carter look good!....Even President Bush comes out looking stronger and powerful than this azz kiss bowing spineless anti-American sycophant.....I'm surprised he didn't "give " meeechele to the saudi king for a nights pleasure (or maybe he did)..she could have belly danced for them all.We need to rid our Country of this pestilence.

Stump, PTHS and and the rest........... you are all so right. We haven't begun to see the worst of this nightmare yet. We still have over 3 1/2 years to go! I don't even want to think about it! Doesn't Europes example of socialism scream "DON'T DO IT!!!"? We're doomed at least untill 2012.

But yes , take solace hypo, he is a Clinton puppet.

This is to the person Ranting

This is to the person Ranting about the women driving with her child in her lap and texting, I hope you called the police or at least took her tag number to report her. Talk is cheap! Next time take some action!
