RANT TO THE unmarked, silver Richmond County police car that passed me on Doug Barnard Parkway by the airport. I was in the log truck. I was running 45, the speed limit, and you came by me with no lights on running at least 75-80 mph. If you have an emergency, Officer, you need to turn on your blue lights; otherwise you are breaking the law. Maybe Sheriff Roundtree can rein in you cowboys.
I OBJECT TO full-page liquor ads in this conservative newspaper in addition to the one in North Augusta. The closer we get to the holidays, the more you people advertise this. Why don’t you publish the number of DUIs issued?
HE’S BACK. OH yeah. Go, Marion Williams. Stick it to the man. Throw a monkey wrench in all their goofy plans.
I HOPE THE “Save Fort Gordon” group is still active. Major cuts in the military budget and the size of the Army are coming now that President Obama has been re-elected. Fort Gordon is surely on the hit list. You’d better buckle up; this ride could be bumpy.
BIG RAVE TO all who stood in long lines for hours and hours to vote. Thank you. This is America; home of the brave, land of the free. We should not be the land of voter suppression.
WE NEED TO be real supportive of President Obama; he has inherited 8 percent unemployment, trillion-dollar deficits, high gas prices and about 12 million Americans underemployed or unemployed and a horrible foreign policy situation.
RANT TO ALL NAYSAYERS in regard to the new elected officials. It’s done. It’s time for positive participation to help our city, county and nation. It’s not time for negative, hateful and divisive comments that will not help in solving issues.
ALL THESE YEARS you all told me that dad-gum Haunted Pillar was haunted and not to touch it. Then right there on the front page are two guys hugging the thing. What about the Tooth Fairy and Easter Bunny?
I HAVE YET TO SEE the first FEMA trailer in the yard of anyone that lost their home and is still living in the ruins. Are there no repair shops, construction companies or tool rentals that have portable welding machines to serve as generators for the gas stations without power? What New York and New Jersey need now are some rednecks with their get r’ done abilities.
