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.

Hey, grasshopper, when California cuts all their social services, where do you think all the illegals are going to go? To the other 49 states, that's where.

Over 30 million people are

Over 30 million people are supported by food stamps! How many depend on SS and SSI? We are expecting 12% unemployment. Crime is up at 10%. Oh you ignorant people can't read the writing on the wall. By this time next year half of us will not be able to afford the internet.

My sister works for a large

My sister works for a large California county, she administers their money. She said they are just waiting to be cut off at the knees. It's going to be bad, the illegals are going to leave like lemmings. Arizona, Nevada, and Oregon are going to be hit very hard.

Grasshopper, isn't it

Grasshopper, isn't it interesting that you don't hear this being discussed anywhere? Because it's definitely coming. And wait until the other states get hit by the waves of illegals.

Last statistics I heard

Last statistics I heard Charlotte had a 20% un-occupancy rate for apartments and commercial. That is scary. Way over built. How people and companies going to float those cost?

I know because, I am in the Construction business. When the biggest land holder in Raleigh, and one of the biggest in Charlotte is in trouble its not a pretty site. I would say that 10% of the metro area of Charlotte is illegal.

The unemployment rate does

The unemployment rate does not include illegals! They need food and shelter. I wouldn't be hanging the West end of South BLVD.

Charlotte is in terrible

Charlotte is in terrible shape. You can't hardly give a house away in Charlotte. And yes, it is way over-built. The high rise condos are going for 1/3 to 1/2 their original prices, and many building developers of them are converting their unused units into rental property. There goes the condo insurance rates, and good luck on selling a condo with 50% rental rates, you know? And Grasshopper, most of the illegals have left- no jobs.

It's a no lose scenario for

It's a no lose scenario for Obowow in2012: either his policies will not prevent a recovery or we'll be in such chaos he'll declare martial law and suspend elections as well as any rights we might still possess. Either way, things are not looking rosy for the self reliant or ambitious American. The future looks promising for the lazy,stupid & shiftless.

newtosisajoke on Tue Jul 7,

newtosisajoke on Tue Jul 7, 2009 10:26 PM I disagree they will end up killing each other! America is in for a rude awakening. The media tries to spin it, but why all the body bags and concentration camps. If people get IOU's for EBT cards what will happen? 30+ million will starve. Katrina all over again!

Rose, you and RCR can cozy up together, but I did notice he was too busy to be there for you this afternoon.Maybe you might want to check out each others schedules before you come on to harass others. I'm no longer going to be nice to you. You've crossed the line.

RCR I don't like Hanity.

RCR I don't like Hanity. Rush is a republican. I am a Constitutionalists. I believe in freedom. If people don't want to work then let them starve. Except for the elderly and the young. It used to be, families would stick together, help each other out. Now it's everyone for themselves, I am glad I was raised on family values. Not Government Values. It is what the American pop culture deserves.

RCR you don't know me or my kind. You are from the city. I am friends with the like minded both black and white. We get along, even if we have political differences. You are a black separatist, you spew your hate for whites. I spew my dislike for the lazy and criminal elements.

According to Rose, Alfred

According to Rose, Alfred despises me. Could have fooled me the last time I saw him. But whatever. He's been told to despise me. Grasshopper, you are wasting your time trying to explain that to RCR. I know. I've been there for almost 3 years. If you aren't black or Rose, he's not buying into it.
