RAVES FOR THE Augusta Mall security people for their hard work in helping to ensure safety for mall patrons and workers! Keep up the job. And I sure wish they could be supplied with Tasers, though I understand if someone has a heart condition that can prove extra hard on them. But then people can’t go around bothering other folks and committing criminal acts, so go ahead and Taser those brazen criminal fighters!

I SEE A CONVICTED felon got to escape just the first year of an eight-year sentence. Why was he let loose with no close supervision in that very first year? And apparently without any ankle monitor?

I’VE HAD A VERY DISTURBING, reoccurring dream lately. I can’t use my smart phone to make a phone call. As I’m “dialing” the number, the Internet or e-mail or text messaging or a movie or GPS directions or photos pop up. All I want to do is make a phone call!

THE TRAGEDY IS NOT that James Holmes used legally purchased handguns and legally purchased ammunition to kill people and injure others. The tragedy is that James Holmes chose to kill people and injure others.

TO THE INDIVIDUAL WHO chooses to scold the men who attended West Acres Church wearing shorts and flip-flops – at least they attended church! My God doesn’t care what you wear as long as you are worshipping his name!

OBAMA BELIEVES government gives you success. Where is mine?

SINCE WHEN DID God say you had to wear a certain thing to get into church?

I AM SICK OF getting multiple calls from credit card companies telling me they can reduce my credit card rates. I don’t have credit cards. How can we stop this from happening?

WE HAD YOUNG people coming to our houses representing politicians and wearing shorts, T-shirts and flip-flops. They should dress a little bit nicer since I don’t know these people.

I THINK IT IS strange that gay people spend so much time talking about their sexuality and parading up and down the street. Why don’t they keep it to themselves?

RANTS TO PEOPLE AT tanning beds. I know it is your job to sell your high-priced lotions, but quit aggravating people when they walk in.

AUGUSTA DOES NOT have “gangs.” Try going to Chicago.

#3. Why not get a plain Jane

#3. Why not get a plain Jane cell phone?

#10. If others minded their own business about gay's private lives, maybe they wouldn't feel the need to protest? Like you, I don't like the parades and "in your face" behavior, but I also understand why they feel the need for acceptance.
Did you feel the same way about blacks marching and parading in the 60's to bring attention to their plight?

News rant

THE TRAGEDY IS NOT that James Holmes used legally purchased handguns and legally purchased ammunition to kill people and injure others. The tragedy is that James Holmes chose to kill people and injure others.

Sorry...but the facts don't lie

Researchers analyzed the keywords that people in the U.S. used in Google searches over four years, and found that every year, searches for keywords related to finding dates, prostitutes and pornography showed distinct peaks during June and July, and again during the winter.

Just like opinion polls in augusta about the Shreriff race..hahah...

The Internet and Comments

Remember when the internet was coming up to speed, many public officials said they never read online comments and things on the internet in general? Boy, that’s sure changed. They not only read what’s said here, they comment themselves. Facebook has everyone commenting and reading about everything. The article in the hard copy newspaper only sets the table for the true story that follows in the comments. Many U.S. Military elements are even going to Facebook. Astonishing.

Church attire

While I agree, God probably does not care what people wear to church, I do believe that we should give Him our respect and try to look our best. Yes, some are more able to have better attire than others, that's not the point. It's not the lake people.

Yup, if you have the clothes,

Yup, if you have the clothes, show respect and wear them to church, not that I go to church that much. Maybe that's why I believe you should wear your best when you DO go. I remember reading about a drive-in church somewhere. I guess it wouldn't matter what you wear there, but wash your vehicle.

Richmond County Roads and

Richmond County Roads and Bridges, can you PLEASE cut the grass around Gate 5. It looks horrible and it’s embarrassing. The conditions around Deans Bridge Road and Tobacco Road going into the gate is unbecoming of a community that is suppose to respect soldiers and veterans.
