Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

A RANT to those people who run the stop signs driving too fast in front of Lowe's in North Augusta. They need speed bumps to slow people down.

OBAMA FIRST poured $13.5 billion of our tax money into General Motors. Now he's saying it has to go bankrupt. Clearly, it should have gone bankrupt before Obama poured your $13.5 billion down that drain.

THIS IS A RANT to parents dropping off/picking up kids at Belvedere Elementary who can't read a one-way sign. Maybe you need to enroll yourself back in school.

KUDOS TO Glenn Hills Elementary School for the great support at "Donuts for Dads." We started the CRCT week off with a large turnout of fathers supporting their kids.

I WANTED TO SEND a rave to The Chronicle not only for its great coverage but also my free paper every day of the Masters. I really enjoyed the paper each day.

Obama didn't do anything; it was the Navy that rescued the hostage. As far as Iraq, Bush stood up for the people of America; Obama hasn't yet. All he and the media are concerned with is Obama getting a dog.

OBAMA SAYS he wants to open doors to Cuba "as a path to promoting personal freedom in the communist nation." Communist nations, by definition, never have personal freedom.

TO THE PERSON that's bashing Obama: Why didn't you run for president?

HOW CAN PEOPLE move into a rented house in a quiet neighborhood and immediately start playing their loud music and disturbing everyone and the sheriff's department acts like they're scared to say anything to them. They need to give them a ticket for disturbing the peace.

ANY REASON why the sheriff didn't have an officer at the intersection of Stevens Creek and Washington Road during Masters Week? A deputy sat in his car while the intersection became jammed between light changes. Can we fix that next year?

AMERICA NEEDS to realize that we are a country of laws dealing with a world where many don't even respect human life. Our "established" military rules of engagement have just allowed the U.S. to be held hostage by four pirates for five days! If the military on site were allowed to perform the duties it is trained for it would have been over the first night.

Instead of the government putting in speed bumbs to make you happy why don't you just get a whistle an orange vest and a stop slow sign. Its obvious that you have nothing better to do

If the president did not do

If the president did not do anything during the crisis with the pirates, who were giving the orders? He is the COMANDER IN Chief, nothing can be done,unless he say it can be done. What did you want him to do, get in a plane, put on a jacket,fly to the ship, and say , MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! I don;t think so. You people are going to be worn out, at the end of his term.

If you 1941 and others keep

If you 1941 and others keep your head in the sand concerning this ultra liberal socialist Pres., who has a all but given this nation of ours into the hands of his socialist buddies as well as booting God to the curb, you people are in for a rude awakening...One day you and yours are going to be screaming bloody murder to awaken to find yourselves in another nation ruled strictly by one man's rule...One reassurance in this whole sick situation is that I can say all who side with this man's ideology concerning God will ultimately find God not to be someone to that is not going to lie down and let these arrogant individuals stomp on Him...He, the Almighty, will stomp back...Personally I believe that is already happening...

1941 - To answer your

1941 - To answer your question - The Captain of the USS Bainbridge was giving the orders. He was finally granted the authority to use his professional military judgement to solve the problem after 5 days of inaction by the Token Pretender-In-Chief. "We can work this out". I really think PresBo was just checking with his relatives in the region to make sure that none of his half-brothers were part of the pirate crew.

To the person complaining

To the person complaining about drivers in Lowe's parking lot- I totally agree. Not only do they speed thru, pedestrians are not given the right of way. Milton, are you one of those that try to run us over? I say put in speed bumps!

I agree with the ranter on

I agree with the ranter on running redlights at Wal-Mart in North Augusta and actually in the CSRA. They are getting bad. I've run the warning light on several occasions, but when I look in my rear view mirror, I see 3-5 more come through the red in many locations. People, please keep an eye out for this and don't get into a wreck. Since the Police can't be everywhere, it will be your responsibility to stop and also pay attention to those waiting on the green light that may pull out in front of those running the red lights.

Some veterans of the nuclear industry were at the site south of Augusta to see the complex network of rebar and concrete rising out of the ground in the 1970s and ’80s. Now, they are back.
