Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

TO THE MOTHERS who spend time with their married boyfriends instead of going home after work to your children shame on you. Your children did not ask to be born that was a choice you made. Remember this, what is done in the dark will come to the light. Then what?

ALL OF YOU Obama haters, you put everything on him — the low economy, the high price of gas and the loss of jobs. I don’t hear you blaming him for this nice weather we are having right now.

IN KINDNESS TO the homeowners on Knob Hill. Please feed your dogs and they won’t bark. They bark to get attention. Woof woof means: I need food.

IN YOUR STORY on March 7, you said that 100 percent of those expelled during the 2009-10 school were black. Why did you not print that no whites did anything to be expelled for? You made it sound like whites were just as guilty but were just not expelled. Come on!

PEOPLE WILL UNFORTUNATELY be promiscuous regardless of what anyone else does or says. However, I would rather foot the cost of birth control instead of having my tax dollars raise their “oops” child.

A RAVE TO PEOPLE who have admitted to wrongdoings, accepted the consequences and are changing in a way to help others not to make the same mistakes.

IF THEY CLOSE THE mail processing plant in Augusta, you could pay $5 a gallon for gas and drive it yourself or pay Fed Ex $10 to deliver your letter. The Pony Express would now become viable again. Of course you could use your computer and have someone steal your identity.

ONCE UPON A TIME I enjoyed the Rants & Raves in the newspaper. I would now like to see you discontinue it for awhile. Take a break, let the clutter subside, even sober up maybe. Just an idea ...

MY RAVE IS FOR the Don Williams concert March 16 at the Bell Auditorium. At 71, he put on a great show and made for an enjoyable evening.

THANKS TO THE PERSON that found my wallet in the Lowe’s parking lot and returned it to the claims desk. You have
restored my faith in people.

THANKS!

Rant #1, "What is done in the dark will come to the light. Then what?"
I reckon it would be time to put your clothes back on and go home to your kids.

Why do the hussein

Why do the hussein worshippers substitute "HATE" for "DISAGREE"? I am NOT a racist because i disagree with a black(or half black in this case)person. All of y'all that disagree with limbaugh MUST HATE WHITE folks. There is simply no other reason for "hating on rush".

Since the black panthers are

Since the black panthers are putting a bounty on zimmerman,i wonder what would happen if the kkk put a bounty on a black person for alledged crimes against a white person. Would it be condemned or would be accepted like the black panther bounty.

#2 That nonsensical declaration could only come from a typical brain dead Obama cheerleader.

#3. Wrong. Dogs bark for a number of reasons, attention being number 1.

#4. Good point if what you say is true.

#5. Why shouldn't THEY pay for their "oops" child? I don't want to pay for any of their care or mistakes.

#6. High five!!

#7. No comment

#8. If you are talking about the online edition, you have a choice.... Exercise it!!

#9. Glad you enjoyed it.

#10. There are still good people around.

Now that hussein has sided

Now that hussein has sided with the black teenager's family in the zimmerman case(without all the facts)and the black panthers have put a bounty on the "capture" of zimmerman,will he mandate that the black panthers be charged with dispensing justice in the U.S.?

Tots answer- Not a dang thang! Yet certain people/groups will cheer and support both groups,some out in the open others behind closed doors..Hate is hate!! Why is it now OK to hate Whites yet not Blacks?
Me,i don't hate anyone because of their color,if and when i do hate a person or thing it's because of an action..PEACE OUT!!

P.S. Good Morning and God bless us all...

Isn't hussein's bias in the zimmerman case racially motivated? Did he call the family of the black teenager simply because they are black? OR Does he call all families of alledged victims of alledged crimes? It has yet to be decided if there was a crime.

It appears that there is at least one person out there that thinks hussein calls all families of alledged victims of all alledged crimes no matter their national origin. Dang,that sure doesn't leave much time to tend to his duties as president.

I wonder if hussein worshippers lose their collective salvation if they don't defend every act and word of his. Could someone that knows about collective salvation fill us in on the rules to obtain an keep collective salvation?

Tots, I had to laugh that hot

Tots, I had to laugh that hot day they arranged that beerfest sitdown outside of the White House at the table for Gates, the police officer, Obama and Biden. Wimpy, Biden was drinking nonalcoholic beer, Gates and Obama sipped one slowly, while the officer turned up one glass quickly and slammed it down on the table for a refill. He was ready to wheel and deal with them, but the wimps backed down.

If they had all downed a few pitchers together, they may have stopped picking on police officers for doing their job checking on someone's house.

Good Morning Ya'll. Plenty

Good Morning Ya'll. Plenty of tail feathers shaking this a.m. Kudos to Ranter #6 and I would like to tag on to your comments. In my own experience, I have found what you said to be true, with this exception. We will not prevent others from making the same mistakes. What we can do though, is walk with them through their struggles and share our experience, strength and hope.

"will he mandate that the black panthers be charged with dispensing justice in the U.S.?"

Eric Holder ????

Seriously, I think it was wrong for Obama to interject himself into this incident. The publicity, protests, etc. have already ensured a Grand Jury investigation and the feds (Eric and the DOJ boys) are looking at it for possible federal hate crime violations. There are conflicting reports of what actually happened in the final moments of the incident. Obama should have kept his mouth out of it. Again he has used his position to sway public opinion instead of waiting for the already in progress investigation(s). He just can't resist being that community organizer instead of being president.

On the flip side, just as much as Zimmerman is responsible, so are the peolpe who terrorized that particular community prior to this incident.

Your actions affect more people than you think.

Sinead O'connor keeps trim

Sinead O'connor keeps trim and fit with her exercise program: jumping to conclusions:

"All Americans should deplore this crime. As should all people of all nations. And deplore the fact this man has not been arrested. All Irish people should do the same. And I ask that we here in Ireland should express through our American embassy that we would like to see this man arrested this very minute. Because racism is not acceptable. Nor is vigilantism. And this was very clearly in no way at all a case of self-defense (sic)."

At least President Obama is calling for a thorough investigation. O'connor has already tried and convicted Zimmerman in the vacuous courtroom between her ears. She is stringing up the rope for the lynching. She don't need no stinkin’ investigation.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
P.S. And she can't write a letter any better than she can write a song.

Repost to see if this will pass your new rules on this playground..

So, how much money did any of you send to the black panthers?
All those who signed the petition before getting all the facts and sent money to this hate group ,need to take a good hard look at your cold hearts..You're signing this mans death warrant before he has been proven wrong.. To "me",you're all KILLERS...
Just my opinion...
