Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

 

RANT TO THE drivers of Augusta. I have been behind many drivers who slow down and look to their left when turning right on a green light. What sense does this make? If you were going straight through the green light, would you still slow down and look to your left?

 

I KNOW SOMEONE who had their motorcycle stolen on April 15 in North Augusta and still no arrest. They know who he is. Take something from Wal-Mart, and three cars show up. Way to go, police department.

 

STOP LYING ABOUT President Obama! He did not only go golfing or partying. He drew down the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He made sure the U.S. did not cowboy solo into other wars in Syria and Iran. He gained back respect for the U.S. in other countries by working with them instead of trying to lead them behind us.

 

SHOUT OUT TO the Richmond County school board for the biggest financial letdown of the past three years. Also, for all the educators about to lose their jobs, and for the looming and booming cuts to come that will jeopardize athletic programs and more jobs. No wonder everyone wants out of Richmond County.

 

RAVE FOR DEPUTY Ray Sigler, who answered an alarm call when the power went out in the area because of a wreck. I am a handicapped person who was locked in an electric chair. He was professional, sympathetic and considerate. He lifted me out of a chair. Thanks also to the young women who waited patiently with me.

 

WHY DO COLLEGE students who study hard and get good grades not get any kind of financial help, but kids who don’t care and barely scrape by can get all the financial help they need?

 

I AM SO PROUD Blocker-Adams is running. I know this lady. She is very courteous and can bring people together just like a mother would. I want to be the first one to call her our mother mayor.

 

I HAVE A CHALLENGE for my fellow Augustans: Whenever you see members of the military, take the time to thank them and their family for their service. Try it. It will make you feel good.

 

REAL ASIANS SHOULD be insulted that the European media describe all violence by Mus­lims as “Asian.” I wonder why they can’t call it what it is.
