Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

WHAT KIND OF clowns are running this city? A trolley, a new baseball stadium, talking about giving the mayor a raise when he's not done anything? What's next? How about fix what we have here. Fix the roads, the potholes, the road shoulders that are deteriorating, the bridges, and the drain system that's flooding all the time. Talk about stupidity.

I NEVER WORRIED ABOUT my children or grandchildren's future while Bush was in office. He kept the United States safe after 9-11. Obama is in office and I am scared to death now. My children and my grandchildren will pay the bills for all the money he is borrowing from China and spending who knows where.

A RAVE FOR The Chronicle updating the news throughout the day on the Web site. I love the new method for getting the news out. Please keep it up.

MR. MAYOR, please give us a paved sidewalk on Aumond Road. We need it for safety.

NOW OBAMA IS aiding and abetting the terrorists by releasing all the sensitive information about them. The United States is at war with the terrorists for our very existence, just as Israel is. Whose side is this man on?

RANT FOR ALL THE unAmericans who want to go after those who did "waterboarding." I'm sure it was quite uncomfortable for the terrorists. I wonder how comfortable it was for the Americans who were literally cooked on top of the Twin Towers to the point of jumping out of the buildings?

SINCE THE OWNERS of Captain D's are opening a Cheddar's, how about a Captain D's on Belair Road near I-20?

GIRLS 17 YEARS OLD are able to get morning-after birth control pills? I don't know why they don't lower it to 10 years old. After all, a girl 10 can surely get pregnant.

RANT TO ALL THE people in the CSRA who litter. I was over at the Bobby Jones exit that takes you to the Target shopping center the other day, and I saw a young woman throw a plastic cup out the window of her car. She didn't even seem to give it a second thought. What has happened to young people in this country?

A RANT TO the previous rant on Sawmill Trail in the Millbranch subdivision in Grovetown. To the person who cannot stand to look at grass and weed cuttings, did it ever occur to you maybe you could have helped the person who was gracious enough to cut the grass? Do you think it's so unbearable to look at? Why don't you think about plastic bottles, disposable cups, cigarette butts and tin cans? Why don't you get out and help do something instead of whining?
