Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

WHY DO SO MANY people here drive in the fast lane when they’re not passing anyone? Even with several cars behind them, most people absolutely refuse to move into the right lane to let them pass. This is driving 101, people. Please be courteous to your fellow drivers and move over.

PARENTS, PLEASE STOP smoking around your babies! It’s not fair to them and they stay sick all the time.

HOW CAN EVERYTHING KEEP going up except your paycheck?

IN RESPONSE TO the person “enjoying” and advocating the provocative dancing by the high school marching bands. It’s no wonder there is so much lust in this world. It is rather disgusting, and people like you wonder why there are a lot of teens having sex and getting pregnant. I think the parents that allow their kids to go out dressing like that and acting like that ought to be held accountable.

BIG RANT TO the blonde driving a white SUV at Barney’s Pharmacy on Peach Orchard. You kept sitting so I thought you wanted my parking space, then when I started to back out you laid on the horn. When I come up beside you at the light I saw the problem, a cell phone stuck to your ear.

RAVE TO WESTMINSTER for the way they handled the on-campus sex abuse. They could have handled things “in house”, but chose the right way by calling in the police. Two lives will never be the same, but the school did the right thing. If only Penn State and Syracuse were this smart and ethical.

IF MY TAX DOLLARS are going to stabilize Europe, then I want Scotland.

IS IT POSSIBLE PEOPLE quit buying houses because there are just too many houses?

A GIANT RAVE to The Augusta Chronicle. I missed my paper delivery Dec.1, called, and had it within 30 minutes. Thank you a bunch.

I’D RATHER BE cold on a motorcycle than warm in a car.

HILLARY, RUN AGAIN; you’ve got my vote.

While I'd rather see Hillary

While I'd rather see Hillary than Barack, I would prefer just about anybody than the nobody weave now. I prefer a solid strong willed ethical conservative. That being said and knowing its a total pipe dream ,with.Cain out I am left with Meet so there is where ky boyd goes. I would also lobe it if Pelvis.and Reid would drivel up and fade.away. They are a lot of what's wrong with this country right now. Go home and party with Barney Frank so we can start rebuilding this once great country.

Rant 1: I drive in the fast

Rant 1: I drive in the fast lane without passing just to make other drivers angry. Apparently it's working.

If you want Hilary, go to

If you want Hilary, go to NY...but make sure you go to NYC because she sure hasnt done much for the rest of the state. I can say this b/c I am a NY resident. She only got the senator position b/c of NYC's vote, without it, she lost. She has ties to the Black Panthers and both Clintons are involved in corruption. A good True Crime book to read is The Boys on the Tracks. Lots of names were brought up in that book...all b/c 2 boys stumbled upon a drug running cartel sponsored in part by our own government....during Clintons years as a governor. It will open some eyes...

People who drive and talk on

People who drive and talk on the phone at the same time make me very angry. Georgia needs to pass a law against this. Not only is it dangerous but it's tacky to boot.

FF I can assure you I don't

FF I can assure you I don't want her. I want as I said a conservative with some intelligence and back bone. However, after seeing what Obama has done I would prefer The dems at least try to improve on who they have now. Not sure she would be an improvement but can it seriously be any worse. I know she is an *#&$3 but is that worse than someone who has taken is so far down.

To Ranter #1, Since they are

To Ranter #1, Since they are so knowledgeable about driving 101, they should also know that by law you are not suppose to go pass the posted speed limit to pass someone. So really left or right lane, the speed limit is the same. Just leave earlier and you will get there on time where ever you are going.

I still say the C.S.R.A.

I still say the C.S.R.A. drivers are the most unqualified drivers in the entire U.S.A. Most people any more, especially young drivers, are too lazy to use their blinkers or maybe they do not know what they are for. People are running red lights because they are always running late where ever they go and yes, maybe the law has changed, the left lane is now the slow lane and right lane is the passing lane. Some people truly amaze me here in the Augusta area!

Hey, SeenIT, the person who keeps me normal. But it was Shrimp's offer of a free dinner that got my attention. Of course he is right we would get kicked out after we started commenting on so many things we would find wrong.

What we should all do is go

What we should all do is go to Hyman's in Charleston, right Shrimp?

Okay, guys, this morning I'm going to attempt to go out in the upper world we've heard rumors about where there is a an orange ball in the sky called the sun. They say there is another civilization out there besides the internet and I'm going to attempt to find it and bring home some much needed supplies for the people of the underworld.

I'm armed with all my LOL's and heh, heh, heh's in addition to knowing the physical martial arts Sean taught me at the black belt level as he was throwing me off the boards now and then. Later....today.

"Rant 1: I drive in the fast lane without passing just to make other drivers angry. Apparently it's working."

And if you do, you should be cited. There are very good reasons road signs instruct "slower traffic keep right". The signs don't say "those running under the speed limit", they say slowER, period.

Good Morning Seenit!! Spent 3

Good Morning Seenit!! Spent 3 days in beautiful Charleston and then 3 days in bed with a light flu; the trip was worth it. Loved your "I have learned"s, this morning. Wanted to add another one to it.

I have learned that I will never make it to the milestone UNTIL I MAKE IT THROUGH THE MOMENT.
