Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

MY MECHANIC WANTS to thank you (and possibly the county) for knocking my steering out of alignment each and every day as I pass over those railroad tracks on River Watch Parkway. You really help stimulate the economy.

FORT GORDON’S barracks don’t need redesigning, especially when government and taxpayers are flat broke.

I WOULD LIKE TO thank the female customer in the drive-through of Chick-Fil-A on the morning of March 9 for the gift card. As a deputy for the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office, we seldom feel appreciated for the job that we do. Because of your thoughtfulness and kindness, I was able to purchase breakfast for two other members of my law enforcement family, and they expressed their gratitude, too. It’s people like you who make our job worthwhile, and I regret that I wasn’t able to personally thank you.

THE GOLF COURSE is not privately owned. It is a city-owned golf course. The management right now is private, but improvements would be for the benefit of the city and its taxpayers. Those taxpayers voted for the money to fix the golf course several years ago.

A RANT TO Evans High School. We attended a soccer game. There was no flag on the flag pole, no national anthem was played and there was no introduction of the players before the game. There was a baseball game being played at the same time. I guess soccer is second fiddle to baseball even though it is the No. 1 sport in the world.

IT SEEMS DR. RICARDO Azziz is not too pleased over the Wal-mart property issue and especially not being able to get his way. I guess Wal-mart was not quite what Azziz had in mind as part of the great vision of GHSU.

A RANT FOR ANYONE who is going to be voting for Obama. If he is re-elected, expect $8 per gallon gasoline and we will be in worse shape than Greece or anybody else.

PRESIDENT OBAMA does not plan to do anything concerning the high price of gas. Instead, he wants Congress to approve $1 billion in grants for fuel-efficiency technology. This is another one of Obama’s so-called bright … schemes.

TO THE HOMEOWNER on Knob Hill Circle with the dogs that are left out 24/7. Your neighbors all around you have to listen to them barking all day while you are at work and then into the night while you are at home.

#2...the barracks do need to

#2...the barracks do need to be renovated. Would YOU live in a mold infested house? I dont think so. Many of the buildings on Fort Gordon reek of mold. My guess is youve never been in one. Our service men and women deserve decent housing that is not going to be a risk to their health. THEY are not the problem with the budget...stop trying to balance the budget on the backs of the military. Why is it you arent complaining about Congress working an average of 180 days and getting 174k? Maybe THEY should start giving up pay when the government is going to shut down because THEY cant get THEIR act together. Any servicemember who performed the way our Congress does would be promptly discharged..most likely not honorably either. Its time we get rid of the dead wood....its NOT our military.
To those who serve... THANK YOU.

Morning ya'll !!!
To the ranter yesterday about fixing the jet stream. Please tell me that person was joking. No one could be that stupid.
Oh and the ranter who doesn't like our little chat room here. Sean said it was OK and he's the boss! You can't do it on other stories but the R and R postings are fair game. It's kind of like where all the posters can get together and say hey. You should try it sometime ranter. We'd love to have you.

Question...Why do clickers

Question...Why do clickers click (thumbsdowners)

Some are so unhappy in their own life that it pains them to see others having ANY kind of fun....even when you wish good luck to a friend in the hospital.....crazy world isn't it...
These folks find a morbid satisfaction in dissing others....instead of looking for some type of "happy feeling" they look to destroy....guess what..
IT AIN'T WORKING!!!......Ya just can't kill HAPPY!

Into a day break miraculously

Into a day break miraculously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts my ancestors gave.
I am the hope and the dream of the slave.
And so I rise
I rise
I rise.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Why is that??? Maybe we need to waste it sometimes.....much tooo serious on here.......we need to give the ole mind a rest at times...let it play...relax....& enjoy life.....thinking is hard work ya know!

I know what you mean Seenit. I could say rainbows and kittens and someone would give me thumbs down.
I'm glad those kinds of things don't bug me. I never have cared what other people think of me...except girls that is...when I was a teenager.

I'd like to say that I've

I'd like to say that I've been on the island of Ohau working on my book but it was actually the island of Folly. Two glorious weeks without the kids. (they were at their grandparents on weekends) My wife could only come on weekends because of her educator status. Which left me in the 2 bedroom beach house with my fridge stuffed with seafood and I stayed up most nights writing. A swim in the frigid Atlantic in the morning got me in the mood for my nap. I did manage to give about 20 hour long tours of Charleston by way of horse and carriage. I think I'll post a picture of me in all my glory!
