Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

TO THE RICHMOND COUNTY sheriff's department and the officer who wrote me a ticket: How in the world could you possibly give me a ticket for improper lane change when someone pulled from the opposite of the road and hit my car, causing it to flip and slide across three lanes? I could have been killed, and you didn't even take time to ask me what happened, just left the ticket sitting in the emergency room while I was gone for a CT.

RANTS TO OUR commissioners for not having the ability to maintain an up-to-date county code. Is it so-o-o-o hard to keep it current and accurate, or are words just not their forte?

WITH THE COMMON sense that Mark Sanford seems to be handling his personal life, no one is going to be surprised if girlfriend and wife both leave him.

I HAVE NEVER BEEN a supporter of Mark Sanford, but the right thing he can do is step down. Do your state a favor; go like a man, not like a coward. Hit the curb before the wife puts you there.

MAYBE SINCE Mark Sanford can stray to his "soul mate" while doing his job, then maybe he could just move to Argentina and still be governor. Would South Carolina notice his absence? If not, then maybe he should be replaced.

MARK SANFORD should be left alone. He exemplifies all that the Republican Party has strived to be.

I DO NOT LIKE the new format of the paper online.

I WAS IN WAL-MART on Deans Bridge Road when I was approached by a group of youths who offered to help purchase my groceries. I was in disbelief when I was then handed several bills rolled together. I cried in the store. I felt very uplifted. It's good to know that there are people who want to help others and don't expect anything in return. God does answer prayers.

I'D LIKE TO RANT. Columbia County has changed Old Belair Road to 35, and it was 45 mph for years. The cops are sitting there like an alligator waiting on a sitting duck. I'm from out of town and came through. And guess what: The alligator got my duck. It's just crazy.

MICHAEL JACKSON inspired a generation with his artistic skill, poetry and creativity. He was a humanitarian whose contributions will live on. God bless him and his family.

WHY IS IT the less than 20 percent of the population is involved in more than 80 percent of the crimes and most are repeat offenders? That leads me to believe that taxpayers like myself are funding their crimes with state and federal monies.

"20/80," the

"20/80," the criminal/law-abiding fraction is probably closer to 5/95. Of course, with our current 40% illegitimacy rate, that fraction is surely to increase to approach the percentages you suggest.

Good morning to all the gang,

Good morning to all the gang, Its so good to hear everyone's voice today so early. On another note: Ellie Mae Palin can spend the bulk of her time trying to patch up relationship with her future son-in-law and his family. Once the novelty of the "maverick" gimmick and the "lipstick line" had worn off, we found she was just another shallow republican with no vision and no original thoughts. Oh well, so goes the rep party. HELLO! HELLO! To all the gang this morning!

The Postal Services created a

The Postal Services created a stamp with a picture of President Obama. The stamp was not sticking to envelopes. This enraged the President, who demanded a full investigation.

After a month of testing and $1.73 million in congressional spending, a special Presidential commission presented the following findings:

The stamp is in perfect order. There is nothing wrong with the adhesive. People are spitting on the wrong side

It's funny how things work

It's funny how things work out sometimes --

"Michael Jackson will be buried this week– without his brain. As his family tries to

finalise details for the King of Pop’s funeral on Tuesday they have been told it will be

held back for tests.

They faced the grim choice of waiting up to three weeks for Jackson’s brain to be returned

to them or go ahead and bury him without it – which they have decided to do.

- MICHAEL Jackson starred as the Scarecrow in The Wiz, the 1978 musical version of The

Wizard of Oz – playing the character without a brain opposite Diana Ross as Dorothy."

wizzardx1 unless you were one

wizzardx1
unless you were one of the kids you claim he molested, you should keep your lies to yourself. Now if you had written that you believe he was guilty, although he was proven innocent, now that would have been your opinion. Otherwise don't state las facts what are really lies.
Next time I go shopping it will be at Dean bridge Road Wal-mart.

"I HAVE NEVER BEEN a supporter of Mark Sanford, but the right thing he can do is step down. Do your state a favor; go like a man, not like a coward. Hit the curb before the wife puts you there."------> Had you been a supporter of Mark Sanford and then made the follow-up remark it might have meant something, as it is, your comment is simply yet another dim taking a tedious pot shot at Sanford. Please at least TRY to come up with something new!

AAQueen, my question is how

AAQueen, my question is how do you know it is a lie. Fact is, he was charged with molesting but was aquitted. That means there wasn't enough evidence to convict. It doesn't mean he was innocent. No one knows for absolute sure if he did or did not except for Michael, the children, and God. Your "opinion" is that Micheal was innocent because he was aquitted....

jack234 must have sexual

jack234 must have sexual thing for Palin. He seems obsessed. I don't know why the Democrats seem so afraid of Sarah. Maybe it's because she seems to be "real" and to have common sense. Unlike Obama and his artificially created pseudo intellect when he spouts high ideals while lying through his teeth as he implements his marxist/socialist takeover. Maybe they are afraid of her because of how she exposed corruption in Alaskan politics to include members of her own party. The Obama administration on the other hand immediately installed tax cheats and former lobbyists as cabinet members and czars. Maybe it's because Palin is just an ordinary working mother who got tired of corrupt politics and successfully did something about it. The Democrats can't stand that. They have to be led by their elitist group of socio/enviro engineering nutcases who are all rich but think they know whats best for the "little" people. You know, the same kind of thinking that goes on in Communist countries where the 2% rich tell the other 98% what they can have and what they can eat and what they can drive and what their salary will be and what the factories will make. The same kind of communism we have now.

As with some molestation cases children are coached to lie. Their mother had millions of dollars at stake. Now if this site has confessions from other children then it would be more credible. Can I open my mouth now? LOL

A French doctor says,

A French doctor says, medicine in my country is so
advanced that we can take a kidney out of one man, put it in another,
and have him looking for work in six weeks.

A German doctor says, that's nothing; we can
take a lung out of one person, put it in another, and have him looking for
work in four weeks.

The Russian doctor says, in my country, medicine is
so advanced that we can take half a heart out of one person, put it in
another and have them both looking for work in two weeks.

An American doctor, not to be outdone, says, you
guys are way behind. We recently took a man with no brains out of
Illinois, put him in the White House, and now half the country is looking
for work.

The dim obsession with Sara

The dim obsession with Sara continues. Why are they so busy whining, complaining and attacking her? She's not running for any office, at this time and they continue the attack. Never has there been such hatred shown for one person. Remember how they whined and complained when anything was said about the incompetent/teleprompter prezbho when he WAS running for office? The dims continue to show what hypocrites they truly are.
