Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

I HAVE A RANT about people in south Augusta who dump trash out on the back roads and throw trash along the road. You are a bunch of pigs and if I see you I will file a complaint and gladly testify against you in court. No wonder people are moving out of Richmond County. It looks like a big landfill.

TO THE REPUBLICAN griping about the Obama administration and how it's not going to keep the country safe: Well, who was president when the terrorists hit the Twin Towers. Bush was in Florida. All you Republicans can keep on whining. The Democrats are doing a good job.

I'VE HEARD PEOPLE talking about Sonia Sotomayor and the rule of law. I was born in 1946, and I graduated from high school in 1964. Where was the rule of law then? My parents had never been able to vote, and schools were segregated. Where was the rule of law then?

I GUESS voter intimidation is OK as long as you are for the right political party. The Black Panther Party up there in Pennsylvania got cleared of their charges because Barack Obama and Eric Holder felt like what they did was not intimidation when they are standing outside the voters' polls with bats and intimidating people and stopping them from going into the polling place.

A RANT to Chronicle editors for not suppressing accusations from other ranters implying that people who do not support Obama are racists. This is not true, and publishing such comments only incites anger and hatred.

I AGREE with the rant about Columbia Road in Columbia County. Except for a few small potholes, the road seemed just fine to me. When I saw they were repaving, I wondered whose brother-in-law got the contract.

WHY SHOULD taxpayers give Richmond County money if commissioners can't or won't agree on how to spend it? If it looks like it won't go their way, they'll not show up. When they get their act together I'll vote to give them my hard earned money.

IT IS UNCONSCIONABLE that an abortion doctor would be murdered. But why aren't the abortion supporters alarmed about the 1.5 million babies a year who are killed? 1.5 million a year, 4,110 a day, 171 an hour, three a minute. In the time it takes to read the comics, 12 babies have been aborted, and that's not funny.

WILL THE PERSON on Rhodes Drive in south Augusta please find a new home for the puppy you have let go. We know who he belongs to and I have reported you. Now you have taken the tags and collar off of him and let him go. Please don't ever get another puppy. I am tired of putting him back in your yard.

"After spending the night at

"After spending the night at Saudi King Abdullah's horse farm in the desert outside Riyadh, Obama arrived at Egypt's imposing, ornate Qubba Palace on a lush property in the middle of Cairo with nearly two dozen horses leading his motorcade down the wide, palm-lined palace drive.:.......Looks like barry is living high on the hog........hey all you idiots who voted for this wannabe muslim autocrat.........while you lose your homes and jobs this globe trotting [filtered word]is having a really swell time with his home boys............dumb sheeple...........vote for me I'll set you free !!!!!!

Ah good morning one and

Ah good morning one and all...Welcome to the new Muslim America of the States...Are you children not happy about this turn of events? It certainly is not a new concept...No indeed this was waiting to emerge during the man's rise to power only the loyal blind followers of Obama failed to see it...Once Islam becomes the "law of the Land" while Christianity slowly becomes outlawed the United States of America will cease to exist...This person, Obama, needs to be taken down...If he is so excited with his new found "friends" he should stay with them...This is America people not some Islam nation waiting for a "king"...

No, King Abdullah (who is a personal friend of the Bushes) lives high on the hog. Bush and Cheney set us all up for losses, not Obama. Ever heard of diplomacy? No? Bush didn't know what that was either. Go sit down somewhere. Y'all would have followed Bush all the way to the poor house. Didn't he buy a 2 mil $ house with your money?

I'm not in favor of President

I'm not in favor of President Obama and didn't vote for him but let's be honest hurlyburly11. The President has no control over how they choose to receive him. They are showing respect to the US President. Do you not think that the US would show the same respect if a foreign president/king/ruler were to come to the United States and meet at the White House. The motorcade might not be lead by 2 dozen horses but I'm sure we would make a big ta-do out of it.

Why don't you ask the Queen

Why don't you ask the Queen of England about how much respect she was shown by BammY? It is easy to see where his dedication lies.

When has diplomacy ever

When has diplomacy ever worked. Virtually every peace accord or treaty in history has been broken as one empire conquers another. The arab world sees diplomacy as a time to rebuild armies and weapons stockpiles and laugh at their weak opponents. Look at the middle east. Obama apologizing to the arab and muslim world (most muslims live in indonesia why didn't he go there) just makes us weak and laughable. So now the chinese, arabs, and muslims are laughing at us.

Of course voter intimidation

Of course voter intimidation is acceptable in this country as long as Obama and his followers have the upper hand...Black Panthers are just a group who express love and peace...:-) I also believe that those who hijacked the planes on 911 where just poor misguided individuals who were misunderstood...There is something wrong with this picture...But there was something painfully wrong when a man who without even partial experience as well as a background in Islam teaching went from a nobody Senator to the President of the United States...

Obama has demonstrated his incompetence in many of his actions like GITMO, the bailout, the apologizes, etc. The man is so ignorant he doesn't realize he should go to Indonesia to address the muslim world, but of course he still thinks there are 57 states.

we the sighted and not

we the sighted and not hearing impaired could care less how other countries receive our presidential visits. we certainly do care when our supposed leader bows to would be enemies of our nation and disrespects our allies in favor of the ones who would like to see us fail. we are well on our way to failure with this mad man at the helm.

col... If you don't like what you read in this section, that's too bad. It's hilarious to watch libs whine about those that they say are whining. It's too bad that you have nothing (other than a whine) to add to the conversation.

Bizket.....Obama going to

Bizket.....Obama going to Indonesia would not accomplish his mission. Everyone knows that a true Wahabi muslim needs to go pay homage to a descendant of Muhammed such as Abdullah claims to be. The Saudis are the leaders of the Wahabis which is the same sect that ran the madrassa Obama attended as a child in Indonesia.
