Rants and raves

THE BONUS THAT Dr. Bedden is getting -- why does he not put the money back into the system where it came from instead of giving it to another organization?

OH MY WALLET! Is it 2012, yet?

I HOPE COLUMBIA COUNTY gets our tax dollars back for the lousy roadwork at Washington and Halali Farm roads!

A RAVE FOR THE young military lad working part-time at the new Grovetown Wal-Mart. As a retiree, myself, he made me very, very proud. As a taxpayer, it made me sad that he's having to work a second job to make ends meet, as he's having to compensate for the loss of his combat pay.

RICHMOND COUNTY VOTERS did not vote to spend $20 million dollars in 2005 for a TEE Center. The commission voted that resolution. What Richmond County really needs is a new, bigger jail to keep all of these criminals off of the street !

HAPPY 40TH birthday to the Internet. Thanks to Al Gore for inventing it when he was only 21!

OBAMA RAN ON the war in Afghanistan as the good war. He needs to give them the troops the commander on the ground says he needs or get out. Overwhelming force is the only way to enter a war.

I AM A FORMER Augusta area resident, now living in the Greenville area. I often read The Augusta Chronicle online for news from home. I want to rave about the new look for your online newspaper! It's clean and formatted in a way that makes navigating easy, smooth and fast.

I HAVE SENT YOU some very good Rants & Raves and you never print even one of them. I don't know who chooses what is printed in the column. I can only conclude they are not too smart.

RANT TO THE churchgoers who find it necessary to smoke in the church parking lot and at church functions where children are present. Is this your testimony?

WHY DO SENSIBLE political leaders keep insisting on a TEE center run by government, when everywhere we turn we see government-run things running off the tracks? If something like a TEE center will work in Augusta, private enterprise will see the profit in it and do it with private money and expertise. Then, it'll either work, or it won't. But taxpayers won't be FORCED to be the gamblers footing the bill.

Al Gore says "It's the internet and I helped." Or was that "It's Shake and Bake and I helped"? Oh well, something like that.

al gore is a bore. he's got

al gore is a bore. he's got the affect of someone who's been on thorazine and confined to a psychiatric hospital for over twenty years and the brain of a sloth. but.....seeing as how he is a democrat and everyone knows they have more chutzpah than anyone else on earth, it doesn't surprise me he takes credit for something with which he had absolutely nothing to do.

That's funny Boston, it's been cheaper just to call someone for years. Now if you just have to send a package it will soon just be cheaper to take it yourself.

Does anyone remember that Global Warming is the brainchild of Al Gore, and that he is very big on Cap & Trade? Guess who stands to make the most money from it?? Not Forrest Gump!!!

I remember him having something to do with inventing electric cars. Would help his investment to scare the crap out of everyone. Of course they couldn't figure out what to do with the six huge batteries it took to run it after they were dead.

I do believe we need to do

I do believe we need to do something about pollution, and I believe that we are hurting our own invironment. I don't believe ever big snow fall , flood or hurricane is a product of our own making. We have been having them from the beginning of time.

Al Gore never claimed to have

Al Gore never claimed to have invented the Internet. JFK did not say "I am a jelly doughnut." George W. Bush does not have a low IQ. Barack Obama did not write a college paper extolling socialism. There are much more believable myths out there such as Lizard Man and Bigfoot, neither of whom has ever held a political office.
