Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

THANK YOU TO the person who found and turned in my lost wallet and cellphone to the post office, and to Ms. Harris at the post office for contacting me. I still can’t believe it! God bless you!

THE BCS SYSTEM is what it is. Oklahoma State lost to lowly ranked 31-point underdog Iowa State. Dogs embarrassed second half to LSU. We know the rest of the story. Get over it. Roll Tide

RANT FOR THE people complaining about Magnolia Trace. It’s ridiculous. It sounds like it is going to be a pretty nice area with very expensive homes. Those of us in Richmond County have much less desirable developments everywhere you look. Don’t be so snobbish.

NORTH KOREA’S “Great Leader” has nothing on America. In President Barack Obama we have a “Great Complainer,” a “Great Blamer,” a “Great Campaigner,” a “Great Teleprompter Reader” and unfortunately, a “Great Deceiver.”

RANT FOR THE people with no life who use the rant/rave section as their personal chat room. Express an opinion, either pro or con, but stop leaving messages, attaching YouTube videos and telling stupid jokes.

COMBINING GHSU and ASU, what will the NAME be? Another $3 million down the drain.

WHY DO TV COMMERCIALS GET so loud during the news? Do they assume everyone is deaf? Do they honestly believe I will buy their products because of the excessive loudness of the commercial?

I NOTICED THAT the combined GHSU-ASU university still does not have a name? Well you won’t have long to wait to see the university named “The Azziz National University.” You just wait!

RANTS TO THE Columbia County Commission about the Magnolia Trace development. When politicians cease to do what is best for their constituents, they need to go. These commissioners did this behind closed doors without an open vote. It is appalling.

IF THE IRS ALLOWS about 50 cents per mile, no one working for the city needs a $7,000 car allowance unless they are driving to Las Vegas.

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW if it takes an act of God to get a cable channel lineup. I talked to six people who said they would send me one in the mail right away, but it has been four months.

Home owners are not snobs

Home owners are not snobs when they complain "there goes the neighborhood". You only need go through it once to understand.

Yes Magnolia Trace will have some nice homes & if the owners were paying for them 100% paying for them there wouldn't be a story on here.

I agree about the posting here. I think this was envisioned to be a place for comments on the happenings of the day, not a chat room, nor a place to monopolize space.

=============================================
Well said Bama man. I share your opinion on this. These folks that want to use this space for all of their personal stuff should just become Facebook friends and leave it at that. That kind of thing is what FB was intended for, so wouldn't that be a better place for this activity?

"nor a place to monopolize

"nor a place to monopolize space." I didn't realize there was a limitation of space in here to monopolize. I'm not one of the "offenders", but I don't see how it hurts anyone. Anyway, those who want to discuss issues, take off, looking forward to seeing your contributions.

I agree with the R&R rant to the point where posted comments have no relevance to anything in the R&R of the day or add any further R&R that can be commented on. Many times it just becomes an Off-Topic message board.

To the 4th ranter, then go to

To the 4th ranter, then go to North Korea and live. Our President was voted in office by the people. The same will happen November 2012. Whoever wins the election will be our President. That's the way it works, whether you like it or not. Whoever wins the next election I will support him, because he will be our President.

Good Morning Seenit!! Yes, we

Good Morning Seenit!!
Yes, we should comment on the rants and raves here. That is the purpose.

Let's see

Ranter 3, Re: Magnolia Trace. In our area, these are not considered very expensive homes. Any entire area with a great numer of single family homes as rentals or home purchases with financial subsidy will be a future ghetto.

Ranter 5, here's my very loving suggestion to you: Do yourself a favor and don't hang out in places you don't find likeable, challenging, comforting or interesting. Life is too short, go find some happiness.
