Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

ALL YOU OBAMA haters thinking that the country is going down, why don't you all just leave before it goes down? I bet you didn't return your stimulus check though. Give that back before you leave.

THIS IS A RANT against the person who said that people are in bankruptcy because they have medical expenses. Most of the bankruptcies are due to people buying things that they can't afford in the first place. The medical expenses are personal decisions. People normally buy cars and boats; they have money to go out drinking and everything else and don't buy insurance as a personal decision. Now Obama wants me to pay for their insurance while they go out drinking and doing everything else.

NEXT TIME I vote for president I'm looking for a serious, boring person. No lawyers and no celebrities. No Palin, Obama or Sanford. Me and my wallet are flat tired of drama. The economy is bad, unemployment terrible. Right now we don't need anyone exciting or glamorous. We need accountants who know how to run calculators and balance the checkbooks.

MANY RAVES to those who keep open minds and think positive. These are the people who will actually get things done.

WHY IS IT that when someone get attacked by a pit bull it is a big story, but when some is attacked by another breed the story reads, "Man attacked by dog," and no breed is mentioned?

RANT TO THE disgusting gas hog who left an Excursion parked and running at Best Buy Saturday while shopping. You're lucky I didn't key it and slash the tires.

A HUGE THANK YOU to the Richmond County sheriff's deputy who rescued my runaway Husky from rush hour traffic on Highland Avenue. Thanks, too, to the man who stopped to help and all the cars that stopped in concern.

I HAVE NEVER lived in a place with as many fat people as Augusta. You never see anyone walking or doing any exercise. People will circle around a parking lot for 20 minutes to get a spot right in front of the door.

ASU HAS DECIDED to hold a graduation ceremony for students who will graduate after the summer semester, starting in 2010. So why is it not also adding a December graduation? How is this fair to the sizable number of students who would graduate in December but instead have to wait until May?

MY FAMILY and I recently visited your beautiful city. Our group included ages 15 to 82. We found your hotels very friendly and helpful. Your restaurants offer a choice of excellent foods. We enjoyed the Riverwalk area several times daily. We will have to return several times to be able to complete the tour of historical venues available. We had a great time. Thank you, Augusta.

morning all......ok, to the

morning all......ok, to the first ranter, number 1, callisto is right, no one would be left to pay your bills, and number 2, we got the stimulus check while bush was the president, not obama, if you were not happy with bush, you need to return your check, and leave the money those of us who are unhappy with obama got alone. i would also like to point out that the money for that check came from my paycheck to begin with, so it was my money that was given back to me, why on earth would i return that, and who would i return it to? myself????

Every year millions of people

Every year millions of people give the goverment an interest free loan, just to be happy to recieve a little of it back at the end of the year and they are happy about it. This country is quicky going to hell in hand basket. The new health care plan will charge small companies that pay 300k in payroll an year an additional 8% for the Goverment health care, Well there went the pay rasies, or that extra body that company could have used. If this plan is so great why won't the senator's and congressman be on the same plan as everybody else are they better? If they pass it they should be on it. America we need to take back the Goverment from the crooks, thieves, and cheats, Fire every incumbent and replace them with new blood.

To all you Obama supporters,

To all you Obama supporters, the Democrates are going to try to ram a health care program most of us don't want down our throats. We will be forced to participate in this program or be fined where does the government get the power in the constitution to force you to buy health care? What happened to freedom of choice you pro abortionn folks talk about so much? What happened to "keep your laws off my body?

Leave the country? That is

Leave the country? That is what celebrity democrats threatened to do when Bush was elected a second time. Notice none of them left. They didn't even have the guts to stay in Iraq as human shields when they said that is why they were going. Too bad too cuz then we wouldn't have had to listen to their rantings anymore. Democrats want you to live how they say to live but don't want to do it themselves. Take for example Gore and his private jets, limos, energy hog house.

no, here's a better idea for the first ranter: YOU leave the country, and take your socialistic Democratic buddies with you. and by the way, when you hear folks dare to criticize the current administration in washington, those are NOT whines, they are rational objections, something democrats have a hard time recognizing.

With this Health care

With this Health care benefit. I love it not only the folks that can not afford it will get fined if they do not have it. The damn idiots are going to fine the drug companies, so they will raise the cost of Meds. So not you get charged to have it, you get fined if you dont, you pay more for you drugs. How the heck is that good for the economy. Duhhhhhhhhhhhh. Democrats must have all thought when God asked who wanted Brains they thought he say rains and ran like hell for shelter.

It is true, I have never seen

It is true, I have never seen as many FAT people as I've seen in Augusta. Teens walking around with fat hanging over their tight fitting shorts and rolls of fat all over their bodies, while eating a bag of chips and sucking down a big gulp. People are lazy. I walk to most places I'm going, less than a mile or two, I take the stairs instead of the elevator, and instead of sitting in front of the tv, I get outside and play with the dogs, etc. Guess that's why I'm still at 155lbs and 45 yo. It is disgusting to see a 10 yo at the beach that weighs more than I do. Parents need to start parenting again.

That just goes to show how

That just goes to show how informed the Obama supporters are to think they got a stimulus check. That is unless they are one of the non-taxpaying supporters.

1st rant. One does not have

1st rant. One does not have to be an Obama hater to know that the loons are in charge with the most craziest of all leading the circus and that if we do not wake up and banish these fools to obscurity the sane people will have nothing. We need to restore a sense of sanity to our world before we all perish in a flame of ruination fueled by the loons in DC.

To the first ranter on Obama

To the first ranter on Obama and us leaving because we don't like him. It's not him, it's his actions. He's probably a good person, but with bad thoughts and ideas. People are leaving because of Prezbho and have been since January. Look at unemployment. They are not leaving the USA, just their jobs since Prezbho has taken control of businesses.

I grant you that if or when

I grant you that if or when Prezbho gets the Healthcare Program passed (hopefully not) Congress and Politicians in America will not be included just like they are not included in Social Security. It doesn't take a Rocket Scientist to figure out that when he starts lowering insurance rates and medical services the campaigning against our present Insurance Companies will most likely lose some of the present insured they have. Then the Insurance Companies will start laying off workers and eventually everyone will be under Prezbho's wishes. Will Congress vote for cheaper insurance and medical coverage? I don't think so. Double standards in Prezbho's plan. Will Prebho switch to his own program ? How much you want to bet ? Wake up America and protest all these actions designed to hurt you.

I don't know if people are going to leave, but you can bet their money is headed toward foreign investment faster than you can say "spread the wealth".

ALL YOU OBAMA haters thinking

ALL YOU OBAMA haters thinking that the country is going down......You ignoramus stop listening to the medias spin and look at the facts. Obama's Economic Models are failing. Hey you ignorant sheeple can't you read a pie chart. Study what GDP means and read the GDP Pie Chart. The Government is hogging more and more of the pie. Which, will leave less for pie for us! Get it??? I told you this world is in trouble when the likes of Glenn Beck and Mike Savage start making sense.
