Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

THIS RAVE is for Butch Palmer. Mr. Palmer's message about cleaning up Harrisburg is working. Slowly but surely, Harrisburg's population is becoming more upwardly mobile. Keep it up, Mr. Palmer.You symbolize the mighty bastion of decency in Harrisburg.Thank you for setting proper community standards.

THIS IS TO the person in the little red sporty car. You ran the red light because you were not paying attention and obviously speeding. To keep from hitting me, you went into oncoming traffic and ended up in the parking lot of Wachovia bank on Peach Orchard Road. I pulled behind you and got your tag number, and when I pulled alongside you to confront you, you wouldn't even look at me. You could have hurt very badly or killed a lot of people with your careless driving.

I FEEL BAD for the truck driver killed recently on I-20. Readers need to understand that though some trucks can run fast, the majority are governed (most at 65 mph or less). We also have brakes on all wheels, but that doesn't mean we can stop 80,000 pounds on a dime.

THIS IS A GREAT BIG rave for the Aiken County Sheriff's Department, all the emergency service personel, the employees of SCE&G and all the volunteers all over our area for a job well done during and after the tornado on Friday. Thank you all.

SUPREME COURT JUSTICE Ruth Bader Ginsburg has gone bonkers. She insists that the U.S. court can make its decisions based on laws from foreign countries. Clearly, even Alabama doesn't base its court's decisions on Georgia laws, or vice versa. So how can this U.S. judge believe such nonsense?

THE CORPS OF ENGINEERS says it'll need $20,000 to do an "assessment" on Lake Thurmond/Clarks Hill. The lake is a giant water puddle. Giant water puddles have existed ever since water. The country is broke, but the Corps wants to spend more. Doesn't the Corps of Engineers already get paychecks and have operating money from our taxes? Why does it claim to need more?

THE RANTER who said our current commander-in-chief was too much of a wimp to handle the Somali pirates sure made a fool of himself. Our new president will authorize the use of force only when needed, unlike our previous president and his cohorts, who were loose cannons.

On this date in history: In

On this date in history: In 1861, U.S. President Abraham Lincoln sent Congress a message recognizing a state of war with the Southern states and calling for 75,000 volunteer soldiers. - In 1865, U.S. President Abraham Lincoln died of an assassin's bullet. Vice President Andrew Johnson was sworn in as chief executive. -- I certainly hope President Obama paid attention during history class. G'mornin, Nammy!, RnR, and all y'all! Carpe diem!

THE CORPS OF ENGINEERS says it'll need $20,000......
You need to re read the article, it's the CC Gestapo with their tax & spend policy that is requesting the changes, the corps is just telling them what it will cost up front for environmental impact.

Ok, I've got one eye open, shaved only the left side of my face, my socks are on upside down and when I sneezed a feather flew out of my nose. Did anyone see me last nite and if you did, did I embarrass myself?

He took out 3 pirates and 4

He took out 3 pirates and 4 more ships were taken over by pirates on Tuesday. He saved an American live and the Navy Seals did their Job, but what is he going to do to fix this? I think he was to aid to Somalia hoping the pirates will just go away.

Remember who was President

Remember who was President last time we got our behinds kicked in Somalia because we were not allowed to use all our resources? He vowed at that time that the USA would "never send troops there again for any kind of action unless US interests were directly threatened". That sure scared them into being model world citizens, huh? They keep saying it's difficult to tell friend from foe there. I disagree, the warlords and pirates control food supplies. The solution is to shoot all the healthy looking or chunky ones..

mom3 - Unless you have let AnGie near your computer, that shouldn't happen. I haven't noticed any problems like that lately. Sometimes posts will end up on different pages due to "sombody" deleting their own posts.
