Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

RAVES TO KRIS in the jewelry department and Mary in the garden department at the North Augusta Walmart. They are always so helpful and nice.

 

DON’T BLAME ALL the messes on Obama. He’s cleaned up a lot of debacles left by Bush and Cheney and their greedy millionaires who took advantage of the wars they dumped us in.

 

PHOTOS OF THOSE jailed, $3. Photos of judges who set low bail and punishment for repeat offenders, priceless.

 

COME ON, GEORGIA. Be just a little bit progressive for once and follow Colorado and Washington’s lead. Legalize!

 

REMEMBER GOV. Nathan Deal’s name when you vote in the next election. He could have stopped this GRU mess with one word but chose not to. Hold your nose and vote Democrat for governor and save MCG in Augusta.

 

THE PLAN FOR Harrisburg is to run all the drug dealers, prostitutes and criminals out of the neighborhood. Then what? These people aren’t going to change their ways? They’re just going to move to another neighborhood and become someone else’s problem. But I guess that’s OK with Butch, Lori and Mr. Merry. At least they won’t be in Harrisburg!

 

AS AN EDUCATOR, I will be willing to have my pay based on student surveys if every parent is willing to let DFCS do an online evaluation of their parenting skills based on what their teenagers report. I administered this survey last year. Several groups of middle schoolers wanted to know what number to give a teacher (who had just lectured them about their missing homework) so she would lose her job. Children live in the moment and do not have the ability to discern what is happening in their best interest. Please show me another profession where a group of angry teenagers can threaten your family’s income.

 

YOU KNOW THE economy is bad when you see hospitals advertising for cancer patients.

 

RAVES TO EVERYONE for another successful Santa Wheels. Thank you; God bless you; and Merry Christmas.

 

SOUTH CAROLINA IS talking about taxing the people who rent their house out for Masters Week. People, stand up! We are supposed to be running the government, not the government running us.
