Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

I TRIED SEVERAL times on several different days to get 311. I got a message to leave a message or submit it online. Doesn’t anybody work in the city of Augusta?

 

IN THIS COUNTRY there is no justice. The good and honest people get punished by the judges, and the gangsters walk away with a smile ready to find the next victim.

 

WHEN WILL THE Columbia County Sheriff’s Office start enforcing the underage driving of golf carts? They are truly a hazard in my subdivision.

THANK YOU AND appreciation to the people at Doctors Hospital radiation center. I turned 85 about a month ago and I have never met any nicer people.

 

IF YOU ARE NOT a home run hitter, you don’t play for coach Wilkins. You are not on the field and not in the lineup. I say good riddance, and let’s move on.

 

THE MANDATORY garbage service is a violation of the Americans With Disabilities Act because people with wheelchairs, walkers or crutches cannot walk far enough to leave things at the street. With once-a-week pickup, it will get heavier.

 

IF YOU THINK YOU are angry at the garbage-collection scam, just wait until next year when the Augusta Commission rain-tax scam kicks you where it hurts most.

 

I AM A CONTRACTOR and would love one of those million-dollar contracts with the city. I could take a few commissioners to the Braves game. But I do not have a sky box, so I guess that means I am out of luck.

 

RANT FOR LINDSEY Graham, who stated, “If you’re not getting a call from a terrorist organization, you’ve got nothing to worry about.” Won’t the IRS, the attorney general or the head of Homeland Security get to define terrorist organizations? I believe they already consider The NRA, the tea party, pregnancy care centers, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh and churches as terrorist organizations.

 

THIS IS IN ANSWER to the griper complaining about people looking to
the left when making a right-hand turn: Appar­ently this person hasn’t driven around here very long, else he/she would know the reason people do this is because a high percentage of idiots love to run red lights. If you value your life, you will pause before going on the green because if you don’t, you might be the next stiff, bloody body down at the morgue. Be safe, slow down.
