Rants & Raves

Comments from our readers:

Thank you for the article on Down syndrome. My son is 28 with Downs and one of the sweetest people you could ever meet. They're so vulnerable. I hope Ms. Burley's killer is brought to justice as soon as possible.

Dog walkers who let their dogs poop everywhere and anywhere. My new plan is to shovel the poop out in the street. Maybe when you're walking the dogs, if you get some poo on you, you might get a clue.

This is a rant against Obama and his administration against the pastor who's thinking about burning the Quran . He didn't seem to be upset when the people in Arizona were burning the American flag and all the people overseas burning American soldiers and the Bible and decapitating American civilians. Why is he upset about the Quran ? Is it hitting close to home, Mr. President?

Idiot move of the week goes to North Augusta streets and whatever you call them. They wait until school starts at Hammond Hill Elementary School and they go out with jackhammers the first two days of school. How dumb can somebody be?

America the beautiful. I don't see no beauty looking at me. All I see in Augusta is a whole lot of trash and garbage. Clean up, people, and make America beautiful. It takes some elbow grease.

To the person about the Richmond County Board of Education police officer pumping gas into his car while it's running. If you see that going on and you know it's illegal, write the man's car number down. Call the police officer's boss and report it.

Rant for Columbia County school system. You cancel middle school art, middle school Spanish and furlough teachers. Yet you install brand new HUGE flat screen TVs in the high schools to scroll announcements to the students (that no one reads). Why don't you collect their e-mail addresses and e-mail them the announcements for free?

Huge raves to Sally Rich and the caring, professional teachers at the University Hospital Child Development Center. Rants to University Hospital adminstrators for closing the childcare center to put up another parking lot.

Rant to Southeast Regional Battle of the Bands set to take place Sunday, Sept. 5 at Lucy C. Laney Stadium. My sixth-grader is in band for the first time and I thought it would be cool for him to see college bands perform. I've never attended a "band battle" in the nine years I've lived here so I was looking forward to it as well. I arrived at 4 p.m. to an empty parking lot. A Chronicle reporter pulls in a few minutes after me, double-checking the location and wondering why no one was there. A fellow patron pulls in the lot two minutes after her, saying he heard it promoted on the radio the day before. They didn't bother contacting the newspaper or radio to update.

Good Morning Historic

Good Morning Historic America, My Friend and Foes.

"Tell us what you think"

To Rant #3, You mean to tell us that you have not realized that in the past 20 months since King SMCICBHO was crowned that if you are not a muslin, your are nothing.

This individual cheers when an American Flag is burned and will be totally in his highest form when all Christian religion is destroyed and no longer exist!

To the rant about Columbia

To the rant about Columbia County Schools...Because they spend money on "wants" not "needs". I wish the parents of some of these elementary schools would start questioning why when a teacher is out sick a para has to sub in the classroom,nothing against para's but they are not certified teachers...
Money is being saved at some schools because of not hiring subs. All this extra work is put on the para on top of her other job,they do all this with NO extra pay...So where is ALL that money going????
Don't know but the principal of that school sure looks good at the end of the year at his/her evaluation time!

We do have some residents in

We do have some residents in RC that love to know where the fast moving items are. With the sale of a few flat screens they could put new 22's on their caprice classic and maybe even boost their sound systems so more people could be exposed to their trash. Good morning Seenit and all good conservatives.

One of my next door neighbors

One of my next door neighbors parks just a few feet from my window. He drives in with the boom box going and sits there listening for a minute or three. While he does that My house vibrates. I am a good neighbor, so rather than complain to him - I accidently set off my car alarm.

The Corgimom smiles

The Corgimom smiles modestly.

While some see the burning of the Koran and the building of the mosque as the same issue, I do not.

One is motivated by hatred, the other is not.

Apples and oranges.

1. Very few people want to work as a substitute teacher, even fewer of those people are certified teachers.

2. Budget cuts.

3. Paras know the school, know the kids, know the culture, know the procedures. It's safer for the kids.

Corgimom, clinton had a

Corgimom, clinton had a problem with "is". Maybe you have a problem with "hate". If a religion teaches eradication of the infidel, and then those practicing that religion label me as the infidel and want to kill me, that is more than enough HATE for this old country boy. Now you go on twisting and distorting everything to suit your own ego and satisfaction but I will not cuddle or pacify a known enemy.

What amazes me vet is some

What amazes me vet is some muslims bring their family to this nation...THEN they have killed their daughters because the girls tried to adopt the American way of life.. Soo maybe I'm missing something here....why oh why would they come here knowing our way of life, if they want their daughters to live the muslim way. I wouldn't go to live in Iran knowing their "backward" ways toward women. Could it be there is another agenda going on....maybe the agenda is to change OUR way of life to suit them.

We don't have to stay. We are going to the hotel, get a shower, good meal and a real bed. Car rental isn't really worth it for 1 afternoon. Now, if I was in ATL you could come get me!!!
