Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

RAVES TO the Augusta National and its members and all non-members that assist with the huge challenge of bringing the Masters Tournament to Augusta. Many people may not realize what it does for the CSRA economy. Great job. Keep it going.

A RANT FOR our present administration, This is the worst darn president we've had since Jimmy Carter.

A RANT TO VISIONLESS Augusta. I'm sitting at a riverside cafe in Savannah, marveling at this city with its beautiful squares and architecture, and wondering how a city like Augusta, once an important port on the same river, became such a boring little blight. Then I see the Masters on the TV and how beautiful "The Garden City" could be if its citizens could get past all the hang-ups and self-imposed roadblocks.

THIS IS A RAVE for District 6 Commissioner Joe Jackson. He is great. I have called him a couple of times with issues in Richmond County, and I have received results within the hour. Thanks for all your hard work.

I WOULD LIKE to know when the Richmond County Sheriff's Department is going to enforce the speed limit and red light running at Augusta Tech and Glenn Hills Drive.

RANT AND DOUBLE RANT to President Obama. He was asked by a reporter about the current hostage situation in the Indian Ocean but chose not to give an appropriate answer.

THE SOMALI PIRATES' attack on a United States merchant freighter was the first since 1804. They would never dare do this under Bush. Give me a rootin' tootin' straight shootin' commander-in-chief cowboy over the wimp we now have in the White House!

PEOPLE WANT to give the mayor a raise? Are you nuts? Our city employees are out in the rain and cold and heat and we ain't had a raise in years and we live paycheck to paycheck and you want to give the mayor a raise? How about giving us one. Get rid of these high paying people. Just like the CEOs. We're the ones doing the work, not the mayor and department heads.

THIS IS A RANT to the person who says Obama has done more in 80 days than has been done in eight years. Outside of spending us into bankruptcy, just name one thing he has completed.

SHAME ON National Hills Shopping Center for blocking out neighborhood residents during Masters Week but allowing speeding "hospitality" vans to fly up Northwood and zoom through the shopping center. Our patronage is good enough all year, but come Masters Week we are forced to fight the traffic on Washington Road just to get to the grocery store.

To all of you that have nothing else to do but complain about our president, guess what? You got at least 3 and a half more years to complain, don't stroke out.

cajunnana - Thank you for

cajunnana - Thank you for your concern. We will pace ourselves the same way y'all did for eight years of President Bush. It's really pretty easy when Pres Cooyon messes up on a daily basis, we get fresh material. We don't have to endlessly repeat "KBR/Haliburton" "Big Oil" "Katrina" and other nonsense to have something to talk about. G'mornin, Nammy! and all y'all.

Copperhead, you can't be

Copperhead, you can't be serious. Four pirates on a lifeboat that's out of gas near US Navy ships...there's only two ways that could possibly end. Salute the Navy SEALs that got the job done. NOT the lousy guy in the White House that the media will somehow credit with the outcome. The hostage was not freed, the Navy SEALs took down the three threats to the hostage's life. Salute the hostage who, as Captain of the ship, convinced the pirates to take him hostage and leave his crew unharmed.

GAC - Here is the deal: It

GAC - Here is the deal: It took the DoD and FBI 5 days to convince the puppet in chief to allow the rescue. He wanted to negiotiate with them. I think 4 guys in a rowboat with one hostage are a bit easier to deal with than a dictator with 25 million hostages. But thanks for the laugh so early in the morning!

A good time to show Augusta

A good time to show Augusta bias after the Master visitors leave;
Look the readers have posted their bias comments toward our colored president not one but three times. And to you news editor who selected to posted these comments in today's paper is a num skull.

Good grief Copperhead...You

Good grief Copperhead...You might want to back that boat up just a tad on the praise of our little ole' Pres. O...Some of those pirates just might have been distant relatives of the man...:-) Furthermore it is a little early to be heaping praise on O's head as he is a groveling sort who truth be told probably didn't have a clue as to what occurred if Clinton or Pelosi had not given him the words to speak...

Carter had one relative who was into humiliating the President...Our own Pres. O has 11 we know of with one who is banned from England for alleged sexual assault on a 13 year old...If I remember Billy was just a drunk...

give us a break jena six, not

give us a break jena six, not one rant named his color, they were against the man himself, who has no idea what he is doing, this has nothing to do with his color, only his lack of ability, we would not care if the man was purple, we would be saying the same thing. those who are actually running the country (pelosi and clinton) are white, and we know that and still complain, so it is not the color of the mans skin that bothers us.

I guess the idiot that wrote " this is the worst dam President since Carter", either been in a damn coma, or suffered brain damage, during Bush 8 years?

What is the " appropriate

What is the " appropriate answer" , for what is going on with the hostages? Yeah, I bet Bush would have flown a fighter jet on the deck and rescued them all by himself. Too many Chuck Norris movies for someone.

How many relatives do you

How many relatives do you have, that may have committed a crime? Is this the best you all can do? Hell, he did more than I would have. They should have had their own security in a known area where pirates roam free. The United States Military is NOT a police force.

ABMS out in full force this

ABMS out in full force this morning I see. Hypo - what are you talking about in your 7:42? Most merchant ships do not carry offensive weapons due to many nations' ports of call prohibiting them (among other reasons).

So Sarah Palin's daughter

So Sarah Palin's daughter getting pregnant with the help of a boy she was in love with is news and a valid discussion topic. But, Barry Soweto having one brother in jail for drug trafficing and another one who is a sexual deviant is not okay to discuss? Yeah, okay.......keep the screen name.

What I am talking about? If

What I am talking about? If you have to ask the question, you will not understand the answer. The U.S. Military is NOT responsible for the security of every ship that sails around this world. The owners of these ships are responsible for the safety and security of the crew members and it's cargo. Why should our military be put at risk?

Yes, I will keep it, for people like you. I never once said anything about Palin's daughter. She can lay down with a Billy Goat and I would not give a damn. You all are the ones that like to creep into other people bedrooms, not I.

The U.S. is responsible for the safety of it's citizens and it's interests. If you don't understand that, I'm glad you did not choose to make a career out of the military.

The military once again does

The military once again does a splendid job; but the blind and deaf sheeple will only acknowledge that if in some way they can include the empty suit's name in the praise even while he was sitting on his hands wishing to negotiate with more terrorists. This mad man has done more in 90 days to harm the USA than the last 4 presidents combined in their total tenures in office. BUT ALAS THE SHEEPLE WILL NOT SEE AND COULD CARE LESS ABOUT HEARING THE SANE.
