Rants and Raves

Comments from our readers:

RANT FOR THE absolute moron complaining about Columbia County not having black people in certain positions. Last time I checked, people in this country were free to live and work wherever they pleased. By the way, I want Paine College investigated.

A RAVE to the kind gentleman who paid for my groceries at Wal-Mart a few days ago. Thank you and God bless you.

THIS IS A RANT for the Richmond County sheriff's department that's supposed to protect and to serve out here on Winston Way and Albemarle Road. We need streetlights and more police patrol out here, especially at night and late evening. We are having problems with break-ins and people violating the no trespassing laws on our property out here. We will appreciate seeing your cars patrolling our neighborhood.

THIS IS A RAVE for you guys for having the courage to print the statistics of unwed mothers in Georgia and South Carolina. I've called in rants and raves before about the number of single mothers and unwed mothers here in the South. It's obvious the girls here in the South have no self-respect. Well, I can see with the statistics I was right, so I rest my case.

THIS IS A RANT. I guess the mayor and commissioners of North Augusta must use the sidewalks to get around town because if they drove on the streets they would be appalled at their condition. Hopefully they will correct that.

TO THE PERSON ranting about the potholes on Windsor Spring Road between Old Louisville Road and Peach Orchard Road: To begin with that's not a state route; that's a Richmond County road. On top of that, the contractor out there, Mavis Brothers Construction, is responsible for the potholes in the road.

IF DR. BEDDEN and a lot of the other Richmond County administrators agreed to a pay cut, they wouldn't have to worry about having to find money for the schools.

AP STORY SAYS that "lower oil prices are threatening Iraq's efforts to build a military capable of defending the country." Thus the U.S. will need to keep shoveling money to Iraq. How absurd. Lower oil prices don't mean Iraq gives oil away. It is still raking in billions. If flat-broke African countries can maintain armies with zero oil revenues, Iraq can afford a first-class military.

WHO WRITES these stories? Perdue signed an $18.6 billion budget. Your story says one veto "stripped" about $2 million from it, as though "stripped" is a big deal. It still leaves over $18 billion. Sorry, that ain't "stripping."

THIS IS A RAVE for us Democrats. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies' profits of 4 percent on a gallon of gas are obscene but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15 percent isn't.

The number of STD's is

The number of STD's is extremly high and it keeps spreading because these kids don't have sense enough or self pride enough to use protection.
Posted by 5:00smwhr on Mon May 18, 2009 8:27 AM....When sex is shoved down their throats on TV and in the movies and magazines about Hollyweird, what do you expect? Teens are walking masses of raging hprmones. Best you teach them about STDs and having babies and what it does to ruin their lives.

hurlyburly you can't try

hurlyburly you can't try obama and biden for war crimes from a war that they didn't start can you? the crawford buffoon signed the directive to deploy troops over there, the buck stops with him,sorry charlie.
Posted by elliottness on Mon May 18, 2009 10:22 AM....Yonce, BimbObama can stop the war in Afhanistan and/or Iraq any time he chooses, so yeah, he's a war criminal just like you and your idiotic ilk have always accused Bush and Cheney of being. After all, it is now BimbObama's air force dropping those bombs killing civilians.

The bottom line has always

The bottom line has always been that it is the female of the species that owns 100% of what the male is after and it is their responsibility to say NO and mean it.

WRDW reported a RC deputy was

WRDW reported a RC deputy was fired after a 911 center employee he was supposed to be training says she was sexually harassed by the deputy. He even wrote a letter of apology to her. I have not seen the story on AC. This is not the 1st time he has been in trouble either. http://www.wrdw.com/home/headlines/45148777.html

Caterpillar announces 3rd

Caterpillar announces 3rd round of layoffs since the prezbho porkulous, vote buying, stimulus bill. Gee, this must be what prezbho 'followers' mean by 'he's doing a good job'. Guess that's the same as closing the GM dealers that still have inventory and are unable to sell the vehicles. We're so lucky to have such a considerate and 'people' oriented prez. I'm sure you can understand the sarc.

The founders of our nation

The founders of our nation were afraid of one thing more than any other... government having too much power! Remember, they escaped from the tyranny of an oppressive and controlling government when they established this nation. They fought and died for it, and now we are letting these same freedoms they fought for slip away little by little, without a second thought.

Dang Rose, I was just asking what your point was as it seemed like you were implying the SO was trying to cover something up. Besides, once a comment is made it is open for comment. Hence your comment about my comment about your comment. Get over it and quit assuming someone is always out to put you down. I was just asking for clarification.

Many of you seemed to miss

Many of you seemed to miss the point of the teen mom article. Those girls are making an effort to graduate from high school and better themselves, not making excuses or taking the easy way out and letting someone else pay for them and their children. They were speaking to classes about not emulating their behavior and supporting each other to do better. They are past the point of needing a birth control lecture, they need life skills. Instead of sitting at home, pointing fingers and waxing morality, get out and volunteer at a crisis pregnancy center or high school. Make a difference in someone's life.
