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.

The dogs work hard? I've seen, first hand, the sheep shearing. It's tough. The dogs do an awesome job, but the shearers have to WORK.

Rose I did and I picked up your mangled brain. A dictionary costs all of a $1.50 in the pocket version. If you can't be intelligent at the very least be literate....................

I had a strange thing happen

I had a strange thing happen to me this past Sunday.I invited a neighbor to come to church with us and he said OK he showed up 1 hour early.He ain't all there but he was polite so we brought him.We get up to go up front and my mother inlaw notices a picture of a man in his baby suit fall out of this guys bible she puts it in my wifes purse because it startled her.I'm taking him home and my wife calls me and tells me what happened.I know he realizes he droped the picture but he doesn't know where I had previosly agreed to mow his grass but that's off now.

fiddy-who has the picture

fiddy-who has the picture now? If your wife still has it, I'd take it to him myself and tell him not to bother coming around anymore and to stay the HELL away from my young-uns (if you have any!). And I'd keep a close eye on him! Best I can say to do...on this forum. lol (': (Wouldn't hurt to go packin' if you have a concealed weapons permit either...and I'd make sure he KNEW you had it! lol.) Can anyone tell me why this should NOT be reported even? Let the cops handle it?

Bush and Cheney are both gone

Bush and Cheney are both gone why do the liberals continue to talk about them. Its a smoke screen for their own evils of socialism. Hitler blamed the Jews the Liberals blame the white gun toting freedom loving individuals, because we are the threat to their control

buckfiddy I would confront him with the picture. He might have dropped it on purpose. He is not to be trusted, especially around who we talked about last night.

1. Is it good if a vacuum

1. Is it good if a vacuum really sucks?

2. Why is the third hand on the watch called the second hand?

3. If a word is misspelled in the dictionary, how would we ever know?

4. If Webster wrote the first dictionary, where did he find the words?

5. Why do we say something is out of whack? What is a whack?
