Comments from readers:

CONCERNING STRAY CATS: I’ll take a stray cat over a stray kid any day. So all you kid lovers kindly keep your kids in your yard and out of mine, off of my car, out of my tree, out of my shrubs etc. … And be sure to keep all of his candy wrappers, pop cans, snack bags and – here’s one you’re gonna love – his cigarette butts right there with him.

IS GREENBRIER the only high school in the CSRA? Why does Columbia County get all the coverage regarding high school sports? Where are the pictures and stories from Richmond County schools? Every local high school sport is coming out of the Columbia County Bureau. Do we not have a Richmond County Bureau?

RANTS TO THE STUDENTS at Paine College who are protesting. Is it not enough that they are getting a free education?

I THINK THAT WJBF should have more than the same two survivors on their commercials. There are a lot of survivors out there who want to tell their stories.

I DO NOT SUPPORT any ban on smoking. I think the government should get out of people’s personal business and let them live freely, abiding the law.

RAVES TO TINA and Ms. Vivian at Trinity Hospital. I was almost vomiting I was so nervous. They had me laughing and I forgot about being nervous. You guys are great. Thanks for everything.

A RAVE TO THE ACLU: Thank you so much for fighting so hard to protect the rights and liberties of American citizens (as long as you aren’t a Christian or Jew, that is)!

REGARDING THE CUTTING OF teachers and parapros in Columbia County schools: These teachers and parapros are needed in the classrooms for the students. They do not need all of the secretaries in these schools. Why not cut those jobs and leave the teachers in the classroom where they belong?

I SEE SO MUCH venom about President Obama. I wonder if he was a white man doing the same thing, would we have any complaints in The Augusta Chronicle.

A HUGE RAVE to the person who found my flowered wallet in the Bi-Lo parking lot on Aiken-Augusta Highway and had it returned to me. Thank you so much. You are a blessing.

Who said the kids at Paine

Who said the kids at Paine College are getting a free education? People always assume things and are often wrong.

Apparently this ranter isn't aware that the ACLU membership is about one-third Jewish. Seems many xians feel persecuted these days if they don't get their way in everything. They're waging a war against anything that is not what they believe. The ACLU fights for the rights of ALL citizens based on logic and reason not superstition.

The ACLU reminds me of what I saw in Aiken last weekend. The Surrey With the Fringe on Top.

Seems to me every week there

Seems to me every week there is a rant about high school sports coverage. With a different school every week. They must have the coverage about even then. And if you are that concerned, join the Booster Club.

Yes we did when Bush was in office. Take back the race card. I can't use the card players term for taking back a card 'cause it would get me banned.

The health care case is going

The health care case is going behind closed doors...hehh

Questions at the court this week showed a strong ideological division between the liberal justices who seem inclined to uphold the law in its entirety and the conservative justices whose skepticism about Congress' power to force people to buy insurance suggests deep trouble for the insurance requirement, and possibly the entire law.

Can we be forced to buy anything.....can we....maybe a car-house-shoes-food-etc.

What we need is a law forbidding stupid people from breeding. But then I wouldn't have my kids.

Another special request

Another special request question....men want to know how do they attract beautiful women into their life....ok guys...

To sum up…
Attraction is different for men than it is for women
While men are attracted mostly by physical traits, women are attracted mostly by PERSONALITY traits.

Women don't decide who to feel attracted to with their logical minds. They “decide” with their emotions and then make up reasons and rationalize it.

Attraction Isn't a Choice!

This is why some men attract women so well, while others don't… and why ANY man can improve his success with women DRAMATICALLY, no matter what his looks, age, or income.

I'd like to share with you a lot more of what it takes to attract a woman - so I've set it up so you can get a no-risk trial copy of my eBook, “Double Your Dating”. You'll learn EXACTLY what it takes to communicate with women so attraction happens fast… and so you're never seen as “just a friend” again.

Remember guys..THAT personality means a lot to the female mind...send me your questions through email & I will try to answer some forya...
gotta go for a spell.....:)

I don't have any stray kids.

I don't have any stray kids. I wish I did sometimes. My neigborhood is old, old, old and most of us old folks don't see too many children. Maybe on special occassions.
So Rant #1, If you see a stray send it over...I love kids, strays or not.
