Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

RICHMOND DEPUTIES, get tough with litter bugs. The people who leave the drive-through restaurants on Walton Way litter Harrisburg. Please give those tacky trashers stiff fines. We love our gentrifying neighborhood.

IT IS A SHAME that we have to depend on a pandemic to do what the liberal, Democrat Congress would not do: control our borders.

RANT TO THOSE who dine out and refuse to tip your server a reasonable amount. Shame on you! Stay home if you can't afford to tip. We know who you are, you order water with lemon and add your drink mix. You run us to death then complain the food isn't right (we don't cook so don't blame us ). Please, don't come in with a party of 16 and expect us to turn into your "party host" for 2 hours ... Chuck E. Cheese has those services. And please, when you are done ... don't take up my table for another 30 minutes ... I have to turn my table as many times as possible. While you may get a bad server from time to time, remember, you've had bad days, too! It could be just a bad day for them as well. So spare me the retaliation rants about poor service, tell their manager ... corrective criticism only makes people better, at anything!

A RANT TO THE PERSON who dumped a whole truckload of trash at the end of Fothergill Drive in Bartram Trail. This is a neighborhood -- not your personal dump. Are you man enough to come back and clean up your mess?

RANT TO THE OFFICER on Bobby Jones on April 27, noon. Traffic was backed up, down to one lane. The people in the right lane were doing their best to get over, but for some reason, the people in the left lane didn't want to give up their spot. When you turn your lights on, in the middle of stopped traffic, we weren't sure if there was a true emergency, or you were just pulling someone over. Then you got on your bullhorn, yelling "get out the way." As if we were all sitting in the right lane with our blinkers on just to look pretty. If we could get out the way, we would get out the way. Then you sped off, spinning a wheel, into the dirt of the construction and stopped midways and did ... well, nothing. Not sure what your objective was Mr. Officer. But your attitude, was atrocious.

RANT TO THE CHRONICLE for publishing some of the remarks sent to Rants and Raves. People talking to their friends about how they feel and what they are doing don't fit into this section.

THIS IS A RAVE for the RCSD for finally cracking down on the speeders on Glenn Hills Drive. This is still a neighborhood and the speed limit is still 35 mph not 90 mph!

WE ARE NEW subscribers to the Augusta Chronicle and live on Pine Needle Drive which is in Harlem and I want to rave about our carrier what a great job he/she is doing. Kudos!!!

"Note: Comments are not

"Note: Comments are not edited and don't represent the views of The Augusta Chronicle. Please read our full comments policy." Now that we have that out of the way, Howdy! How is everybody doing today? I'm just sitting here killing time until I head off to Milledgeville at 7am. If you need my email address to stay in touch, just let me know! When I get back, I'm going to grill some brats and corn on the cob, make a pot of beans, bake some cornbread and get ready to watch the NA$CAR race tonight. G'mornin, Nammy!, RocknRoll and all y'all! w00t!

This is a RAVE for Columbia

This is a RAVE for Columbia County. My husband and I attended the last 2 Blues & BBQ concerts at the amphitheater. Great music and great atmosphere! Thanks for putting on the concert series. We hope to attend more of these. Many, many thanks to all the people who worked so hard to make this event happen, and for the Sheriff's Dept for providing police presence. As far as we could tell, no one got out of hand. Good time seemd to be had by all that attended.

To: w00t! (': by Nammy!: I

To: w00t! (': by Nammy!: I agree with the third from the bottom RANT TO THE CHRONICLE for publishing some of the remarks sent to Rants and Raves. People talking to their friends about how they feel and what they are doing don't fit into this section.
Rants and Raves Comments were created to allow you to comment to one or more of them. (not COMMENT gossip) What most idiots are doing are ranting in the comment section about nothing that pertains to any rant or rave for what the program is intended. If you really really have something to say, send it to the Editor and they might even put your photo in it. The way the program works is send in R or R and then have others comment on it.

The two party system has

The two party system has failed to control our borders and spending. The continued low interest rates along with increased government spending, has brought and will continue to bring high inflation. Including, a boom and bust economy. The two parties can blame each other, but both are at fault. With no control of the borders, the American citizens who are not educated and are unskilled have to compete with the illegals, which means lower wages. With high inflation and low wages the rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and the middle class shrinks.

hypo... I didn't know it was

hypo... I didn't know it was also the responsibility of Bush to protect the 'birders'. We realize you blame him for everything but that one tops them all. *** As you stated earlier "When did Bush control our birders? He wanted as many Mexicans as possible to enter.

Maybe then prezbho should

Maybe then prezbho should work on protecting our active CIA agents (that are protecting our country) instead of giving out their names; since he is responsible for protecting our country. Just think Valerie Plaine (not active CIA) and how the dims wanted to crucify anyone that supposedly 'outed' her. Hypocrisy = dims.
