Rants and Raves

Comments from our readers:

THIS IS A RANT for the commissioner who suggested we let everyone use and pay private trash haulers. Responsible people will pay, but irresponsible people will go back to dumping their trash by the roadside. Our service is excellent as is, so leave it alone. I know of some cities that charge more than we pay, and that's only for basic service. We have a good system, and to change it would be a disservice to the people of Augusta.

THIS IS A REQUEST to The Augusta Chronicle. Will you please investigate why there is no security at the Augusta Mall? Once again, a lady was pushed down by a group of young men wearing their pants down around their knees. There has to be some reason why there is no security at the mall.

RANT FOR THE ILLITERATE morons around Augusta Mall with their pants down. I have lived now for 72 years, and I have never imagined that humanity could degenerate as far as this. It's as if we are returning to the Stone Age and cavemen. These idiots have no mentality at all.

LINDSEY GRAHAM needs to spend less time preening in front of cameras on national television and needs to spend more time working on doing something useful, like bringing jobs to South Carolina.

THIS IS A RANT for you drivers who always pull out in front of people. You don't see anybody coming behind us, but instead you would just rather pull out in front of us so we can hit you.

I PICK UP MY PAPER every day and I turn on the news and I get so sick and tired of these political pundits, conservatives and liberals, bashing one another. This is America. I thought we are supposed to all have differences, and we are supposed to agree to disagree, but how can you consider yourself to be an American if you can't respect the opinions of others? I couldn't live in a world where everyone voted the same way.

A RAVER WRITES that he is "proud to stand by (his) choice" of voting for Obama. Anybody can make an honest mistake, but to watch the destruction Obama has already brought in just a few months, it's hard to fathom this mistake, too.

THIS IS A RANT for Augusta State University. I was greatly concerned when I learned they were raising tuition and fees by over $500 per semester. But now that I know it was to help pay for TV ads to attract more students to a school that has too many students and supposedly needs new buildings to accommodate them all, I feel much better.

A RAVE to the motorcycle cop who pulled that aggressive nut job in the pickup over this morning on Washington Road. That truck nearly rammed into four cars that I saw. I cheered when the cop came out of nowhere, lights flashing.

I PICK UP MY PAPER every day and I turn on the news and I get so sick and tired of these political pundits, conservatives and liberals, bashing one another. This is America. This is American politics, with freedom of speech comes freedom to criticize ones speech. This has been going on since the beginning of American politics. Besides its fun to crack at the liberals, and their ignorant wanna be world organizer.

Well there is your problem

Well there is your problem right there. Stripers and hybrids have been hitting LIVE blueback herring when they are not schooling on top where you can find them by the flocks of birds. But I know, you are a fishless expert. By the way, I thought Thursday was your day to take a drive and walk around a jobsite pretending you were still employed.

Re proud; What makes you

Re proud; What makes you think the persons choice was a mistake? Do you realize, the people have a right to vote for whomever they choose? At least this time the people did not have , thier vote stolen, and was able to put who they chose in the white house!!!

I don't even live in Augusta,

I don't even live in Augusta, but I can figure out that Augusta Mall is not a good place to be. Make a decision- go to the mall and deal with the people there, or find another place to shop. There's nothing in a mall that I need badly enough, to deal with thugs. A mall in Charlotte just instituted a policy that doesn't allow anyone under 18 in the mall on Friday and Saturday nights after 6 pm unless they are with a parent or guardian, and if they are there without their parent or guardian, they must leave or the police will be called. It's been in place 2 weeks and already there is a dramatic improvement. And the staff doesn't wait for a problem- they approach anyone they see that looks under 18 and asks for picture ID. They said "We are not going to drive our paying customers away from somewhere they don't feel comfortable." Too bad the managers of Augusta Mall don't have that same common sense.

I have met Lindsey Graham and he is a very nice man, and he is an excellent kisser. (I tell you that from personal experience.) Regardless of what you think of his politics, he truly is a warm, genuine person with a great sense of humor.

You used to have some points to your rantings but now YOU just sound ignorant.

Maybe the mall need to be boycotted. They are already going bust. They should enforce a dress code.
Where ARE the security guards?

If the mall would put in a 'dress code' and have it enforced the thug element would move on. Or just put 'no loitering' signs up. This gaggle of imbecels makes evening trips to the mall unbearable.

The people that love to pull

The people that love to pull out in front of you are the ones that want you to buy them a new car. You have to learn that first, then, just watch out for them , get out of their way and let them buy their own new car.

Push my wife down at the mall

Push my wife down at the mall when I am along and see how that works out for you. It will happen sooner or later. They will push or try to intimidate the wrong person and we will have to jail a productive citizen for shooting one of these scumbag worthless little thugs. Going to happen if the mall doesn't take some kind of action.
