Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

OBAMA IS GIVING away too much to big business. He will give away our freedom if he keeps on giving.

BEFORE YOU CALL Rep. John Barrow to vote for the U.S. Clean Air Act, know the facts and how it will affect you. This act will place heavy fines on industry, which will pass them on to the taxpayers. Prices will go up.

RANTS TO THE humorless crowd looking for something to "get" on Obama supporters. Now they criticize Wanda Sykes for her remark about Rush Limbaugh, who apparently is not suffering from kidney failure. Michael J. Fox, on the other hand, does suffer from Parkinson's disease, and Rush mocked his symptoms. Raves to the people who can tell the difference between Sykes' hyperbole and Rush's cruelty, and raves to Sykes for nailing the inhumane buffoon.

THE NATIONAL MEDIA are so biased toward positive coverage of Obama, they remind me of the old Soviet Tass news agency. The nation deserves better coverage than this bunch of suck-ups can deliver.

RANT FOR OUR commissioners, Time to get along, children. The TEE center was approved by the voters without the add-ons, and the baseball stadium is perfect where it is.

TO THE PERSON apologizing for the error in judgment in driving: My hat goes off to you for being able to " man up" or "woman up," as the case may be. I have had people pull out in front of me and never even look. And they scared 10 years off my life! Kudos to you. You are wise enough to learn from your mistake. God bless you!

THIS A RANT to the Richmond County Narcotics Division: I think that it is a sin and a shame that you have to use "confidential informants" (snitches) to set people up, just so you can look like a big shot and make an arrest. Then the real drug dealer gets a pat on the back and walks free. Good job. Keep the ones out there that are really slinging dope and take the ones who really aren't to jail. Ha, what a joke!

RANT TO DOCTORS telling you to "call 911 in case of emergency" after hours and having private home numbers. In the old days, you could call your doctor at his home any time in an emergency. This would have saved $1,500 for a simple prescription, which I had to get from the hospital emergency room.

A rant to people who "need"

A rant to people who "need" to call their physician after hours for a simple prescription. If all you needed was a simple prescription, it could wait until morning. In the old days, people respected one another's time and privacy and only called in a true emergency, so a doctor knew the call was legit. Now, people will abuse that privilege. Raves to the doctors, protecting their privacy and time with their families.

Ranter 4 the reason it sounds

Ranter 4 the reason it sounds as you state is because we are already a socialist/communist nations as stated by Norman in 1944. The Democrat party back in the 40's up through today is spoken to be Democrat/socialist/communist party. The Socialist party candidate for President of the US stated in a 1944 Speech of his. "The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But under the name of "liberalism," they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened." He went on to say: I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democrat Party has adopted our platform. I hope all the people that voted for Obama are happy with your Communist/Socialist choice and you get every darn thing you deserve.

for those of you still

for those of you still recieving telemarketing calls ....the national do not call list is 1 888 382 1222 just follow the prompts. one for english (I guess I should not have assumed that) one to register, then put in your ten digit phone number. area code 706 number xxx yyyy. takes 31 days and you will no longer be annoyed by these pesky people. Unfortunately it does not block politicians or benevolent societies.....

To the last Ranter - Why

To the last Ranter - Why should any doctor provide you his/her home phone number? You example is exactly why I wouldn't if I were a doctor. Failure to act timely on your part should not be an emergency on theirs. Could you not count your meds or call for a refill during normal business hours? Now let's just hope you pay that emergency room bill unlike so many others who use public hospitals for routine healthcare.

The snitch rant sounds like sour grapes to me. Even if a snitch helps the RC Narc Div make an arrest, the person being snitched upon has to do something for the police to make an arrest.

Ranter has an issue with a doctor wanting to spend some time with his/her family? Why stop in at a hospital emergency room? You should visit one of the many "Urgent Care" facilities available throughout our communities. Urgent care facilities are cheaper, offer faster service for minor problems, and help keep our crowded ER's available for citizens not needing "simple prescriptions".

If you think it is bad now

If you think it is bad now wait until national health care takes over. Does anyone remember the problems with HMOs ? Even in emergencies you had to get pre approved for treatment...Your doctor did not get to determine your treatment , some clerk witth a reference book in India decided what treatement was allowed and what wasn't

IRISH - The "problem" with

IRISH - The "problem" with these robo-calls (frequently the exend car warranty ones) is that they are made using a radom number generator. No number is safe from them. They do not pay any attention to the do not call registry. They really messed up when the unlisted numbers of congressional lawmakers got calls. There is an investigation in progress.

I suggest getting a Doctor

I suggest getting a Doctor that has an emergency phone number where if it necessary the Doctor will call you back. Because of the pill popping drug addicts, laws have changed and doctors are not willing to write prescriptions over the phone. So if its the weekend or after hours and you pull a muscle, have an abscessed tooth, or severe pain for some non-emergency reason you either suffer or go to the emergency room. If you don't go to your regular Doctor then you are questioned as if you are some type of pill popping addict.

To the ranter who is afraid

To the ranter who is afraid Obama will end up giving away our freedom...One question...Why are you surprised at anything this man, Obama, does or does not do?....Quite frankly with the favorite of Obama climbing into the seat of the Justices nothing much comes as a shock...The power play for ultimate control of this nation is coming about quite nicely for our dear Obama...

TO: Doctors these days are in it for the money not the people..
Oh so true. Once Obama gets the national health care program he is pushing, the doctors will no longer be in it for the money, but rather out of it for not getting money. Guess we'll have to go back to the voodoo doctors that keep you alive for 30-35 years, huh.

Cudo's to wizzardx1 on folks

Cudo's to wizzardx1 on folks being too late to do ANYTHING about our country's situation. So many people BLINDED into thinking Obama could CHANGE the USA into a better USA. They are being taken for a ride along with those that did not believe his CHANGE. We are in for it big time now, so Obama voters, suffer along with the rest of us.

Heaven forbid the doctors

Heaven forbid the doctors should have private time with their families, too. GET YOUR PRESCRIPTIONS WHEN THE REST OF US DO--during the week when the office is OPEN. Some doctors have even opened Saturday and after hour clinics to help with patient needs. What's the old saying? A lack of preparedness on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine. You are probably one of those folks who also wants your kid's teacher to call you back after you get off work at ten o'clock at night, right?
