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?

Why don't they take the money

Why don't they take the money for the Trolley's, light rail, and new baseball stadium and take the criminals off the streets. I wonder how many warrants that are issued with no action? Get rid of the Crime and the private investors will pour money into the city.

I think we should water board congress. I am sure we couldn't get any valuable information out of them but if we are lucky they will all just quit.

Look you whiney knuckleheads

Look you whiney knuckleheads .... What part of building the stadium primarily with private investments and possibly a bond from A/RC (that would be paid back with interest) do you not understand? I don't think any private investors are going to put down their money to keep jails open or fix potholes expecting an eventual return on their funds.

The jail system just needs to

The jail system just needs to maximize it's resources. It has a huge pool of unemployed able bodied workers at it's disposal. The jail should operate self-sufficiently, assigning work to those inside. Laundry, Kitchen, Janitorial... there is no reason to pay someone for those services. And if that doesn't cover it, start charging admission for visitors. I pay to see my kids perform in school plays or for entrance to a baseball game. If it's important to someone, they will pay.

Ode to "Sweet Basil".......................why so pale and wan sweet basil?....there you stand among the rosemary and oragano and chives and thyme..looking sad and limp...when you first appeared you were a sight to behold all green and shiney with proud leaves glistening... your cousins are all looking proud and smelling of spice and lemon and sage... whilst you barely raise your tattered head......... so what hast made thee so forlorn?

According to Obama "he has a gift"...You might hesitantly ask "What"? as it is downright impossible to find something in which this man is gifted...:-) He has a gift of "gab"...He can deliver a really good speech...To be fair I have to agree...This man waltzed right into the White House with virtually no qualifications at all but a gift for obviously swaying people to his mind set...The problem we have now would have to be trying to find a way around this uniquely unqualified person dead set on playing a being President while we all watch our nation nose dive into oblivion...Oh well...:-)

To give the person an answer

To give the person an answer to which side is Pres. O loyal...He is loyal first to himself then to his new found terrorists buddies...After all that is what anyone who craves a position in the upcoming One World Government would do...He must cultivate the ones with the upper hand...
