AH, SPRINGTIME in Augusta, when the roads are yellow even though they are no longer paved with bricks.

AS A SENIOR CITIZEN, I love the size of the paper now. It is so much easier to read and handle. Thank you very much.

I AM AN INDEPENDENT VOTER. Why is it that no one from Obama’s college days will stand up for him, or even acknowledge him? It is hard to believe that all his papers are sealed and the public is not allowed to read them. What is he hiding?

TO ALL THE PEOPLE who are blaming President Obama for the downfall of our nation. The president has no control over how high gas gets and he certainly does not have any control over how many people a company hires or fires. Please place your blame on the correct target, i.e., the oil companies and the owners of large corporations that choose to save money instead of hiring workers.

ROUNDTREE IS NOT the person for sheriff; the church is not the place for politics.

UGA COACH RICHT gets paid $2.81 MILLION to be a football coach. As ridiculous as that is, you’d think for such overpayment, he could maybe bribe the players into obeying the law.

BECAUSE OF LACK OF money, Richmond schools may have to increase class sizes. Look at it this way. If bigger classes mean kids will learn less, and if public schools nowadays are teaching more socialism than true liberty, then by increasing class sizes kids will be subject to less brainwashing. They’ll end up better off.

RANT FOR THE North Augusta Recreation Department Little League. Fathers should not be allowed to coach their children. It’s not fair to their kids or the other kids on the same team.

MY WIFE AND I would like to thank the “low life” that dumped the precious little full-blooded Chihuahua puppy on Russell Street behind Richmond Academy. They say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. This must be true because now she is our beautiful treasure. By the way, her name is Sophie.

I LOVE WALMART. I hope they can put one on every corner. It brings jobs and puts money back into the economy.

IF AUGUSTA KEEPS selling property to Dr. Azziz, they may as well change Augusta, GA to Azziz, GA.

Regarding the last Rant/Rave: "IF AUGUSTA KEEPS selling property to Dr. Azziz, they may as well change Augusta, GA to Azziz, GA." I've been thinking the same thing!

TO ALL THE PEOPLE who are blaming President Bush for the downfall of our nation. The president has no control over how high gas gets and he certainly does not have any control over how many people a company hires or fires.

Unless he uses taxpayer money to buy a company... remember Government Motors.

'ROUNDTREE IS NOT the person for sheriff; the church is not the place for politics"

"TO ALL THE PEOPLE who are

"TO ALL THE PEOPLE who are blaming President Obama for the downfall of our nation. The president has no control over how high gas gets and he certainly does not have any control over how many people a company hires or fires."

If I can't blame Obama for Obamacare, who do I blame? Obamacare itself is keeping thousands of small businesses and many large businesses from hiring people.

If I can't blame Obama for no new drilling permits on federal lands, who do I blame?

If I can't blame Obama for no Canadian pipeline, who do I blame?

If I can't blame Obama for putting us an additional $6 trillion dollars in debt in 3 years, who do I blame?

If I can't blame Obama for using my money to buy GM and give it to the unions, who do I blame?

If I can't blame Obama for appointing an anti-energy academic to be Secretary of Energy and a blatant racist as Attorney General, who do I blame?

If I can't blame Obama for wasting $billions on a multitude of Solyndra like green energy failures, who do I blame?

No, Ranter #4. You are wrong. I can, and I do, blame Obama and the "pass it so we can find out what's in it" Democrats.

It's not only the black

It's not only the black churches in Augusta involved in politics. There's a well known connection with the white churches and candidates although it's more subtle.

dichotomy, you know I always

dichotomy, you know I always support all your true and documented facts comments to the fullest, but this time I believe we should blame the uneducated, so called Americans, socialist minded, wannabees who voted for this al-Qaeda plant, muslin loving, maxist King SMCICBHO. We sure could not be blaming him now if this hadn't happened.

Good example of how the news

Good example of how the news media can change the out come of cases was in fact the OJ Simpson case..And just a few years ago the case of the mother who killed her babies right here in Augusta GA..
Kinda like it's going to do for the mother who killed her two year old and twins,all because Oprah Winfrey is giving her all this attention..
