SOMEBODY NEEDS TO tell the ranter that kids can play baseball in a public park or a private yard with the cost being merely for one baseball and one cheap bat. As a kid, I got to play despite holding the record for strikeouts. I wasn’t deprived by politicians as that ranter would surely insist. Stop depending on government; soon government will enslave you.
MR. TROTTIE WAS released from prison two months ago. In that time, he’s apparently gone back into the car stealing business. Why do judges and parole boards release such obvious felons?
PARENTS, YOU have to pay for your kids, not others. No matter how much talent, if you can’t pay or find a sponsor for sports or any other expenses, then don’t whine about it. You might get some help if you ask politely with sugar instead of whining with vinegar.
MY RANT IS ABOUT the Mother’s Day concert at the James Brown Arena. It was not the artists, it was the sound system, or should I say the lack of a sound system.
DOES AUGUSTA HAVE SO much trash that it has to have it picked up twice a week?
IT’S RIDICULOUS how people keep saying the illegal immigrant couple were good people and need not be deported on only one charge.
WE NEED TO LEAVE Iraq and Afghanistan and save those billions of dollars to funnel back into our own country to use. We have the homeless problems, the lack of full assistance to our beloved vets and officers of the law.
WE STARTED RECYCLING three years ago. Now we don’t need twice-a-week garbage pickup. Once for garbage, once for recycling is plenty. Anyone can recycle and cut the garbage way down. It takes a little work to wash out some of the plastic stuff though.
RANTS TO THOSE IN Washington who want to change Social Security. I have a surefire plan to ensure the stability of Social Security. All government employees and elected officials should have to participate in the Social Security retirement plan. I bet it will stabilize in one week.
RANT TO RICHMOND COUNTY drug enforcement, if there is any. You need to target that area near the corner of Windsor Spring and Peach Orchard roads. The parking lots are becoming a dope center for south Augusta. Get these slum bums out of there.
