Rants and raves

HEALTH CARE REFORM? I am wondering what words of enlightenment of the opposition we believe. The opponent, at the same interview, will say that the problem is that "we do not know what is in the bill," "the chairman has it hidden in his closet" -- and within the same discussion he will complain that it is a "bad bill for Americans," that is the bill he has just said that he has not had a chance to see or read. Which words are we to believe?

TO THE DRIVER of "ImAudi": River Watch Parkway is not the German autobahn. Slow down!

HUGE RAVES to Martinez Elementary School, and especially music teacher Kay Lovingood, for the daily Christmas caroling during student dropoff this week. How lovely to experience the true meaning of the holiday season via beautiful music. This parent is most appreciative and wishes the entire staff of MES a very Merry Christmas and happy New Year.

COLUMNIST MICHAEL Smerconish claims former government executives (such as Vice President Dick Cheney) should not tell the truth about their successors. When a president is choking us to death, it's hardly sensible for a previous vice president to remain quietly in the background.

ISRAEL'S INTELLIGENCE services are, by far, the best on Earth. When Iran gets the ability to hit Israel with a missile it will suddenly find it has been hit by Israel.

IN RESPONSE to the person who won't be purchasing any Nike or Gatorade products, I want to say, "Get a life." This whole ordeal with Tiger was blown out of proportion. Men and women have cheated since the beginning of time -- black and white, celebrities and everyday people. But God is the ultimate judge and not us, and I am so grateful for that.

CARLTON GARY was convicted of strangling three elderly women over 20 years ago. The Georgia judicial system continues to let this murderer live while playing legal games through appeals. Slow justice is no justice. Thanks, Georgia Supreme Court for no justice.

I TEACH PRE-K at Deer Chase Elementary, and my students' parents are just fantastic. Thanks to all of you for giving me a chance to work with your children and making Christmas special.

A GIANT RAVE to the Augusta West Dance Guild for its It's the Night Before Christmas show. What a great way to start the holiday season!

"CHRIST"MAS. Pretty clear. Christmas is all about Jesus. The "holidays" could include Hanukkah, New Year's or whatever else you want to call the time frame. I didn't hear the exact quote, but if Obama did in fact state, "Christmas is not about Jesus," then he is an idiot.

Preventive maintenance is a

Preventive maintenance is a good option. If only this had been addressed decades ago. The crisis stage that we find ourselves in today is due to the complete and utter lack of attention to the problem. All the CO2, methane, and nitrous oxide that has been building up for many years is now causing extreme problems. We are now standing at the edge of the abyss, so to speak, with our backs against the wall.

Unless ALL nations and citizens of Earth co-operate, it's not worth destroying our economy. And all citizens of Earth will never agree on anything.

UncleStom, you are right. I misspoke, although leaving out data to me to come to a conclusion is essentially the same thing as altering it. The result is the same. Thanks for the technical correction.

Is Bubbles gasp's twin? Has an Augusta State prof or whatever it calls itself now told two of his students to post idiocy here? Or horrors. Are they actual graduates?

You have to believe in climate change if you are a supporter of all the other nonsense that is being spewed from this ridiculous political climate.

A RANT for this "mother" -

A RANT for this "mother" - MERRITT ISLAND, Fla. (AP) -- A Florida mother is being criticized by bloggers and Twitter users for posting a tweet less than an hour after her 2-year-old son drowned in a swimming pool at her home.

Shellie Ross, a 38-year-old stay-at-home mother who lives outside Patrick Air Force Base where her husband serves, posted a message asking that people pray for her son after he had fallen into the family's swimming pool on Monday. Her son, Bryson, died at a hospital less than an hour after paramedics responded.

Ross has more than 5,000 followers on her Twitter account, Military-Mom, and she also maintains a blog, Blog4Mom.

Strom, that is one of the preventable tragedies that we so often hear about. Child proof locking doors, pool surface alarms and most of all adults who are attentive to their children and supervise them. I see some such mothers (and fathers too) who seem to live on this blog and I pity their neglected kids. They seem to value the time spent tearing apart strangers post rather than quality time with their own kids. So sad............

What in the world was that

What in the world was that woman doing blogging at a time like that?! She should have been there with her son. The woman has/had a small child, where would she have found the time to do all that Twitter/blogging? I hope that she has the book thrown at her!

Who in their right mind has the wherewithal to post on a computer after losing a child? It makes me wonder if she pushed him in.
