Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

I WONDER HOW Sheriff Roundtree and the Taser Tag Team are doing?

I WAS AT A LOCAL Waffle House and the employees were dancing inappropriately, “twerking” and bouncing on the floor. Not very professional. Don’t take my word for it. It should be on the security cameras.

I LIVE IN SOUTH Richmond County. I never go downtown; I never go to Riverwalk Augusta. I don’t think my tax dollars should go towards downtown because I don’t use it. We are taxed enough as it is. We are in bondage by our government through the taxes we pay.

TO THE PEOPLE who stole the bricks from my backyard: I wouldn’t have minded you having them if you had asked first. You will end up having bad luck for stealing. You know it’s wrong to steal.

NOTHING AGAINST Sheriff Roundtree. I like him. From what I understand, he wants to close down Riverwalk Augusta from dark to dusk. That’s not protection by the law. Why not close up stores at 6 p.m.? That is giving up our town to the thugs. We will not. Wake up, Augusta.

RAVE FOR THE students at Evans High School. Our church group from West Acres Baptist was there helping with registration. They said yes ma’am and no ma’am. They were just as sweet as they could be. We are very proud of you.

YOU SHOOT SOMEONE and then you drag them for several miles and we don’t seek the death penalty. What has this world come to? Give me a break.

I’M A 73-YEAR-OLD man and I am thinking of joining the Girl Scouts, but they won’t accept me because of my age and my gender. Man, what a good lawsuit. Just kidding.

RANT FOR COLUMBIA County engineers. There is a hole at Cox Road and Hereford Farm Road that is about a foot deep. Columbia County is supposed to be so perfect; I’d like to see somebody fill that hole.

I READ IN THE newspaper that the NAACP is working to stop the execution of a tried and convicted murderer they say is mentally disabled. That is nothing new, because there are many others in prison and in society also that have the same condition. I would hope the KKK would offer a rebuttal.

FOR THE PAST FIVE years we have seen living proof that to become commander in chief, you have to be a veteran. You have to have that military experience. Lord help us.
