Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

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.

"justthefacts" no, we're not

"justthefacts" no, we're not "allowed" a certain amount of space. MY POINT is, post after post after post when that person could say it all in one space, so the rest of us don't have to scroll forever, and NO this is NOT a party place. Seems as though THOSE are the ones that have nothing else to do. As another posted, get on Facebook or email and party away; not here please.

I find it rather interesting that someone would post on here that those who post on here have nothing else to do. (shhh, don't tell them, they are here, too...)

I find the comments on here

I find the comments on here fairly entertaining...RK, willow, Seenit, Riverman, CG and the regs keep em coming. Its not that hard to scroll down and read what wants to be read. The Ignore User button would eliminate all that anyway if the people who find it offensive would just learn how to use it! Kind of ironic...by complaining the person who did it gave everyone a chance to comment AND be on topic...haha. Kinda defeated their own cause when you think about it....:-)

I can't get to the You Tube

I can't get to the You Tube videos at work. People need to learn how to use their scroll bar, scroll past comments you don't care to read. If you seriously don't want to see them, use the ignore user button. Gonna end up with no comments!

Reading the comments passes time for when I am bored at work. I like the jokes.

saying "hey" could be

saying "hey" could be construed as chatter, which is frowned upon by the comment meanies.

War Horse looks epic. Been waiting myself to catch it.

David, ohhh, well, don't stop saying hey. It would be a boring place without it. I also wouldn't want to be someone no one wanted to say hey to.

Willow, I’ll agree with about

Willow, I’ll agree with about anything you say just because you are a beauty….okay, maybe you make some good points too. But if it’s close, I’m going with Willow just because of the way she looks. Riverman never gets any kind of help with those who have met him.
