Rants & Raves

THIS IS A RANT for the politicians in Washington, from the president right on down. They can't agree on a budget and they're sending our young people into harm's way. They got their lucrative health care and retirement. They don't care about us anymore, about the working class people or America as a whole. They ought to all be kicked out of office. Every one of them. And we need to start this country over the way the founding fathers meant it to be run. Get rid of these lifetime politicians. Make them go out and get real jobs like the rest of us.

A RAVE TO the man in Grovetown who recently had an article in the newspaper stating that we need to take care of our country first and then see what we can do to help other countries. I know we need to help others and share but we have too many in our own country who are in drastic need.

I WANT TO put a rave for the pharmacists at Kroger of Martinez for always being so kind, understanding and patient in taking the time to talk to all the customers about their medicine.

THIS IS NOT a rant or a rave. I'd like to know, the old Gurley's on Walton Way, if someone could open up an IGA. That would be so wonderful.

WHILE THE CHRONICLE generally does far better than average as a newspaper, occasionally they stumble. April 12's edition wasted seven paragraphs of news space on a "story" about an actor who lost a comic book. Who on Earth cares?

THIS IS A RAVE for Vernon Thomas and Bill Morris, the Columbia County candidates for a commission seat. They did an outstanding job with no mud slinging, which is a rarity nowadays in politics. Either man would've done this county a good job. I'm proud of the way they've performed.

A BIG RAVE for the manager of Toys "R" Us on Wrightsboro Road. She solved a very disappointed little boy's problem and made his grandparents' day!

NO, RANTER, OBAMA does not aim to turn America into a third-world nation. Maybe the ones doing that are the godless, greedy, amoral Ayn-Randian "objectivists" who have easily-manipulated congressmen in their pockets. They're the ones who would love to shut down the government.

Excellent RAVE for Veronon

Excellent RAVE for Veronon Thomas and Bill Morris - Both are great men and do care about their community. Bill will do a great job as a commissoner. Hopefully, the commission will find a way to allow Vernon to actively help the commission through committe's or in other areas as he would do an excellent job.

As far as rant #1 goes, those

As far as rant #1 goes, those politicians won't have to get a job, they are set up for the rest of their lives. Then when they die, their spouse is taken care of . Not right is it? I've told you people over and over, they are crooks!! What is a crook? He/she is a liar and a thief.

Ranters 1 & 2: I

Ranters 1 & 2: I wholeheartedly agree with you--and so do many others in this fine country of ours. It's too bad the politicians have become so self-centered and greedy that they have entered an amoral life-style. As for Ranter #8, the big O DOES intend to turn America into a third-world country and is backed by his money guro, George Soros. the big O is a communist bent on the total destruction of the United States and destroying the US Constitution. His dream is to become our last elected President and first dictator....he needs to be ousted from not only the White House, but politics as well.

As for Ranter #8, the big O

As for Ranter #8, the big O DOES intend to turn America into a third-world country and is backed by his money guro, George Soros.

Do you really know what a third world country is? Is Soros and Obama going to stop the police from enforcing the law? Are they going to go to schools and stop kids from getting education to work in fields? Are they going to change the constitution to set up warlord kingdoms, like in Somalia, so they can reap the profits? Once again, people are throwing terms around like they know what they mean and have NO CLUE what they really are.......

When Obama is mentioned along

When Obama is mentioned along with "third world countries" the writer usually means a dictatorship rather than a democracy. We really don't need to be so technical when we speak of the big O and Soros, we know what they are and where they almost have us. My knees get closer to the ground everyday.

Oh gosh, calling objectivists

Oh gosh, calling objectivists "godless"? Why, that's... an actual understanding of objectivism! That's impossible! Ayn Rand and Jesus Christ are completely compatible in every way, get out of here with your "logic" and your "facts"!

Is there something wrong with

Is there something wrong with Ayn Rand's philosophy that includes this: If you do not work, you do not eat. Seems like I read that also in the Bible recently.

Autumn Leaves, you and I are

Autumn Leaves, you and I are on the same page most of the time. It is time to cut all spending and especially entitlements that give to those that do not do anything-- except for the elderly. Work or do not eat but get ready because thes do nothings will start stealing more than they do now.
