Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

 

WHY ARE AMERICAN PEOPLE still falling for the nonsense that the top one percenters are the job creators? I learned in my high school economics class in 1966 that DEMAND creates jobs. The way things are going there will soon be no middle class to support taxes... only the top one percenters and the working poor!

 

RAVE TO THE ANONYMOUS patron at The Sunrise Grill on July 11 who paid our bill in appreciation of my husband’s military service. He rarely has the opportunity to wear his dress uniform in public and that act of kindness really made his day.

 

HUGE RAVE TO Transportation Solutions of Augusta. Thank you!!

 

CHANGES TO GEORGIA laws have now made some felonies mere misdemeanors. Crime is up, so our elected leaders lighten up the standards. That’s so absurd.

 

THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE of Environmental Health Sciences is another socialist federal outfit that spends our tax money to blame bad health on the environment. Now they’re pouring $5 MILLION tax dollars into giving free health tests in Graniteville. It sounds fine until you figure out two things: 1. Health is still not the business of the federal government, no matter how the Supreme Court wants to lie; and 2. $5 million for tiny Graniteville means they’ll soon spend several zillion for big towns. So, instead of us doing better, we’ll all be poorer till we’re broke and the feds have established their hoped-for dictatorship.

 

GEORGIA REPUBLICANS “say tax is in voter’s hands.” Baloney! “Leaders,” like House Speaker Ralston want to take more of our money, so he uses what’s become a successful con called a TSPLOST.

 

BARROW IS RUNNING scared for re-election and yet he voted against repealing Obamacare. Do you reckon Obama got to Barrow some way?

 

DOES COLUMBIA COUNTY have so much money that it can afford to have a person directing traffic in the tag office? All this person does is send people to a window. I can find an open window if they’ll just lower my taxes.

 

TO THE PERSON who was saying that cats do no harm ... may I say firsthand, I have seen them tear up cushions on outdoor chairs, and also shred the top of a convertible.
