Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

MY RAVES TO all of the wonderful people at C21 Larry Miller Realty for their support of our troops overseas by sending cases and cases of hand warmers and to all of the great people of the CSRA who are donating the hand warmers.

RAVES TO RCBOE Media Technology department for the upgrades to the school media centers and for the resources they offer. Our children say that a visit to the media center is the highlight of their school day.

A RAVE TO the Augusta Utilities worker who bought ice cream for all of our students with special needs while on a field trip and all of the chaperones. Thank you, Mr. Hadden! Too often our students are overlooked or shied away from. You made a huge difference for them.

RAVE TO the nice men who stopped the morning of Feb. 8 to help push my Honda Civic off of Washington Road and in to the Eye Care One parking lot. It was so nice to have people come to my rescue in a situation where I felt helpless. Thank you for taking the time on your way to work to help a complete stranger.

IT’S ACTUALLY A GOOD THING this paper posted the salaries online. Now we can see just how underpaid some people were mistreated.

A RAVE for the family who so kindly paid for me and my husband’s dinner at Calvert’s on Valentine’s Day! You truly made our night special and one that we will remember forever. We really do appreciate the kindness that you showed us. Thank You!

I WANT TO SAY thank-you to Jan and Chris, the two EMTs from Gold Cross who brought me out of a diabetic coma at 6 a.m. Dec. 13. I am also thankful to the good Lord for awakening my wife and thankful to her for recognizing the symptoms and knowing we had an emergency.

I apologize for taking so long to say thank you, but it was like a dream seeing strangers in our bedroom and an IV hanging from our fan to my arm, and the first thing I heard was Chris saying to my wife, “If you hadn’t called when you did he would have been a goner.”

THANK YOU SO VERY much and God bless you both for paying for me and my husband’s lunch at Harbor Inn on Valentine’s Day.

Good Morning (I'm almost

Good Morning (I'm almost ashamed to say) America.

When an anti-American Commander In Chief Apologizes to a country for the killing of 2 of our Americans in Cold Blood, is one sick puppy. Of all the destructive acts this "it" has done in the past almost 4 years, this is the most despicable act done to this great nation. Anybody that follows or support this type of thinking are doing nothing but supporting the destruction of America. Any other president would make Afghanistan the largest desert in the world.

Good morning, George. I don't

Good morning, George. I don't get that either. The CG over there is working hard to keep the guys calm. They rightfully want revenge. This is just plain wrong to kill our people and protest even after we have said no disrespect was intended.

George, it's just a continuation of the apology tour he started right after he was sworn in. In this case he needs to be more PC and say "It's your fault"

I am not trying to make this

I am not trying to make this a religious debate, but why is it that if a Bible is burned that is freedom of speech. If it is a sacred writing of any other faith it is blasphemy???

RK, I'm just brain lost

RK, I'm just brain lost trying to understand why so many walking among us has allowed this anti-American, Marxist, SMCICBHO to still be in office, destroying this country from the minute he wakes up to the time he knells on his rug before going to sleep. This America has never seen a change like it has in my 72 years of life..God, Please do something to save my Grand Kids.

I like this, stole it from

I like this, stole it from another blog....

I must have missed the news broadcasts where POTUS has apologized to the Christians who have had their churches burned, pastors murdered, co-worshippers beaten, raped and dismembered by multitudes of Muslim extremists in many countries around the world. The military has outlawed the carrying of Bibles or religious displays anywhere in our Islamic allies' sight.

Chances are most people don't

Chances are most people don't know that chaplains have to remove any religious insignia from their uniforms. Unless of course it is Muslim. Even on US bases. And of course we agreed to it since it was the PC thing to do. I agree more and more with the saying "Everything I need to know about Islam I learned on 9/11"

We've been repeatedly told

We've been repeatedly told Obama never practiced Islam after he left Indonesia at about 10 years of age. When he went to Pakistan when he was in his 20's and stayed with the Pakistani family for awhile, I'll bet he did. It would be interesting to talk to those in Pakistan who remember him.

SeenIt, there you go. Because

SeenIt, there you go. Because I KNOW how you feel about CG. If he would blue suit up and ride up to your house it would be like Evil Knievel's girl getting on the back of his bike at the college and riding away with him into the sunset.
