Comments from our readers:

ENOUGH ABOUT the wall art at the waterworks! Love it, hate it, who cares? Just get over it. Use your energy on thinking about something that really matters to this “city.” Perhaps ways to improve it so it is more than just a punch line.

THE SENATE bigwigs put out news that newly elected senator Brown from Massachusetts will be “sworn in ahead of schedule.” He should have been sworn in no more than a day or two after winning the election.

SOME RANTER seems to think it’s just fine for Obama to blow millions (literally) of our tax money flying himself all over the globe when he could do his whole job from one office in D.C. The ranter asks, “Who are you to tell our president … ?” The president is supposed to work for us, not the other way around.

ANOTHER FIRST. Our government will have to borrow to pay the interest on its debt. We normal people would have to claim bankruptcy. Why aren’t we on the list with Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Ireland since we are further is debt than they are?

IT MAKES
me want to throw up when somebody comes to the Futurity, drives around and sees our city looking so trashy they think it should be called the Garbage City instead of the Garden City. We live here all year long. The city needs to look nice all year, not just Masters Week.

AUGUSTA WILL be blessed to have the Kroc Center. I hope our citizens and our city can be worthy of this blessing.

RANT TO the liberals: For one to state an opinion does not equate to “judging someone.” This has nothing to do with “churchgoing.” Why is it considered a unitive action to force health care upon individual Americans; but to defend the rights of the unborn is “un-American hate”?

I HAVE NOT been to downtown Augusta in years, but I guarantee you that I would be down there every week if they brought back the Monday Night Rasslin’ matches at the Bell. It was always a packed house down there every Monday for rasslin’. That means more people to spend money in downtown businesses.

A RANT for the “move over” law to stay out of the right lane, now the “slow mover” law to stay out of the left lane. What other lanes are there to drive in?

A RANT to the Columbia County library for asking patrons to pay for magazine subscriptions. The county has squeezed enough out of that place. Why not cut the government center?

THE MAJOR
problem with parking downtown is not the parking itself. Everyone wants to park right in front of the entrance to the business. Walk a block or so. This includes the business owners and employees as well as the patrons.

My friend who drives a school

My friend who drives a school bus was stopped by RCPD and told he was going too slow to be in the left lane. He was going the speed limit (55) and was setting up to make a left turn within the mile. How fast should he have been going to avoid the stop? This is crazy. He probably was turned in by someone making the call from his cell phone while they were driving. When this law goes into effect please spell out the fine print involved. And yes he was going 55 but his bus was empty except for himself.

This is a great day for America. A major winter storm is hitting Washington DC and congress won't be able to do anything to screw us up even more today. Enjoy this brief reprieve while you can.

Don't need a snowstorm to stop progress in D.C. The Party of No has managed to completely stop all progress on everything. The American people are getting zip from Washington. So why are we paying them?

Bubblesup you have a typo in

Bubblesup you have a typo in your comment. It should be "know". It is not the party of no but the party of know because they "know" that the liberals are in the party of loose screws.

Thanks seenit, I try to

Thanks seenit, I try to inject some levity in here and lately it has become what it was when most of us began posting here. For a while some people used it to promote hate and racism, but I rarely see them anymore and there's nothing wrong with sharing some laughs.

CBBP - I had to settle for leftover grilled porterhouse steak chunks, sauteed onion and jalepeno jack cheese omelette with salsa on top. Who has the celery seed for the bloody mary's ?

For the vomiting ranter, what

For the vomiting ranter, what section of the highway have you volunteered to keep clean? With all the budget cuts, how do you think local government can pay for this? This is just another example of how all of us want services to be provided, but none of us want our taxes to increase. We are all guilty of this. The R&R crowd is a knowledge group that seems to want to be involved. Why don't we organize and offer our volunteer services where ever they are most needed?

Regardless of how good the information might or might not be I don't believe Rants @ Raves is the forum for publishing comments longer than some books.
