Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

A HUGE RANT to these impatient, selfish people that expect the office of the president to cure all their woes in four months. Get a life and try to help yourself. We live in a democracy. Taxes make the country run. I don't see anyone demonstrating about starving people or fifth-graders that can't read or do math because of lazy parents.

RANT TO Commissioner Betty Beard, who represents the Harrisburg area. Look at the work you did on Laney-Walker. Why can't you invest in the Harrisburg section? Street lights on Crawford Avenue and Eve Street (like the ones that line Laney-Walker) would help this neighborhood greatly. These two streets go from Walton Way down to Broad Street, where the Kroc Center is to be built, and the lights would make a big statement.

OUR PRESIDENT goes before Europeans and now Latin Americans and blames the U.S. for most of the ills of the world and then promises "new growth funds" (with U.S. tax dollars). His new friends Castro, Chavez and Ortega are long-time socialists and can teach him much -- he did say, "I have a lot to learn."

THIS IS A HUGE rave to the nice ladies who work at the Motor Vehicle Department down on Laney-Walker Boulevard. I had to go down there to get plates for my car, and they were wonderful. They were very pleasant and took care of me in a very timely manner. Keep up the good work.

TO UNEDUCATED PEOPLE trying to jump on Obama for paying respects to leaders of other countries: Study cultures and psychology. The latter will show you that Obama is not kowtowing to anyone, but merely paying respect and showing proper diplomacy and courtesy to leaders of other countries. There is nothing wrong with that.

ELECTED REPUBLICANS and young Republicans are still tongue-tied over the immensity of what transpired in the November election.

I WOULD LIKE to give a big rave to the Georgia State Patrol for helping out with The Best Dam bicycle ride on Sunday. They were there watching the motorists while over 300 bicyclists rode 60 to 100 miles around Clarks Hill. And I might add they stopped several motorists who did not yield to the bicyclists.

DEKE, YOU'RE jeopardizing this city's financial future for a minor league team that already has a perfectly good stadium. Is Cal Ripken threatening to move the team if he doesn't get a new stadium? Ask the taxpayers, Deke. They're the ones that put you in office. The way you are taking the choice away from us is wrong.

A RAVE TO Matthew (our newspaper carrier) for the note he left in our paper regarding our Sunday delivery. Thanks for showing that you cared!

My opinion of his foreign

My opinion of his foreign policy is summed up easily: "It's the economy, stupid." Obowingmaster seems to be running for a (as yet) fictitious position called "King of The World".

From what I have seen he has

From what I have seen he has met our allies and has opened the lines of communication with some of our enemies. Seeing as how under the previous Admin we had very few allies left, I'd say it's a start in the right direction.

With him being the product of

With him being the product of a broken home, it's easy to understand Obobblehead's craving for love. He just wants everyone to love him. Poor baby just didn't get that growing up. The majority who elected him probably didn't either. That majority certainly didn't learn anything about fear and the positive aspects of being feared.

Yet WHEN our enemies strike

Yet WHEN our enemies strike us, the first thing the ultra liberal supporters will do is ask for God's help. Yup, the same God who doesn't belong in our schools, our public buildings, or our lives according to them.

Keep your friends close and you enemies closer. O'Bama is doing what he should be doing, and frankly what should've been done years ago.

Oh yes, let's apologize for

Oh yes, let's apologize for all our actions to our enemies. That's really going to help. Then after we've done that let's listen to our enemies make fun of prezbho. We can see how he's really doing a good job. I'm sure that must make sense to the apologists of prezbho.

The Europeans appeased

The Europeans appeased Hitler, and looked what happened. The Leftist view of appeasement to our outspoken enemies are historically wrong. The past American presidents who trusted our enemies, dictators, have always proven to be wrong. This is why Reagan stated trust but verify. He knew his enemies and he beat them. If we are not the top dog another country will be. It is just the facts of history. Someone always has to be the winner, you can't have the level the playing field mentality when dealing with an enemy.

I'm with the ranter about the

I'm with the ranter about the stadium. I was at the game Saturday night-the grounds are nice, things looked clean, and the choral group singing the National Anthem was great! However, this is MINOR league ball, folks. The stadium wasn't remotely full, and its current location is pretty accessible to all of the CSRA. So to waste money-anyone's money-is just foolish to move the stadium downtown. What's the point? What a waste.

It's amazing, the same bitter

It's amazing, the same bitter people, keep coming on here saying others who don't support their position, are dumb, stupid or unimformed. Anybody, with half a brain, can see the foolishness in that comment. What is it that makes PTHS and his gang so smart? That guy really thinks too highly of himself.He thinks intelligence begins with what he thinks.It's one thing to have an opinion, but another to think you are always right. Well check this out fly guy,you are not GOD. You are just a bitter southern racist, who thinks this black guy is too dumb to run this country.President Obama, is so far ahead of people like you, you can't even see his dust. Like I say,"you have been sniffing too much of your own wind".

RCR, by your rant at 12:39pm,

RCR, by your rant at 12:39pm, you just proved that you are just as much a racist as anyone else on here. I personally take offense to what you posted. I am a bitter southern american citizen, who thinks Barack Obama (whether black, white, or any other color) is too inexperienced to run this county. President Obama is most definitely more eductated than myself but I know stupid when I see it. His policies and decision making, in MY opinion, are going to run this country into ruin.

InChristlove,I guess I struck a nerve. If you didn't feel this way, you wouldn't have commented.You, christian and Jesus is coming, shouldn't confuse a screenname with what you really are. You don't say a thing when PTHS make racist comments at will. You just sat back pretend you wasn't around.As far as the president's policies ruining this country, that just your biased opinion. And we know how much opinions are worth.
