Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

I FEEL IT’S NOT fair that some Columbia County schools let their custodians work from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and some have theirs working from 11 a.m. to 7:30. Come on, they are people, too, and they have live. It’s not fair. God got his hand in it so watch out.

RANT FOR THE American people. We have reached the very bottom with our pathetic ways now. When toddlers in strollers and elderly World War II veterans are not even safe in America, we are in bad shape. Couple that with tourists being killed and we cannot go any lower. Shame on the American people for letting this happen.

FIFTY YEARS AFTER Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, this is still going on. Twenty-five blacks were asked to leave a South Carolina restaurant because one white patron felt threatened. It reportedly happened at the Wild Wing Cafe in North Charleston, S.C.

RANT TO SHEPEARD Blood Center. I noticed that you put up no-firearms signs. You want me to help save three local lives while giving up the right to protect mine? You have lost me as a donor.

WHEN BUSH 1 AND Bush 2 got us into wars in Iraq I argued for their impeachment and conviction. I will advance the same action for Obama if he takes us into a war in Syria. This stuff is none of our business and does not affect our national security. And our Congress is worthless for not stopping it.

JUST ON THE news – the Fort Hood shooter has received the death penalty – will that be enough? I wonder? Will they address him with “major” as they shoot him? And could they distribute all the military money he earned while incarcerated to be divided among the victims of his horrible deeds? I hope this is the end, the very end of this monster, no appeals or whatever there may be.

IN THE PAST FEW months we have had a 99-year-old and a veteran of the Battle of Okinawa both beaten to death. A baby shot in the face. A home invader beating a mother in front of her 3-year-old, a college baseball player slain by “bored” teens and a middle school kid beaten viciously on a bus. I don’t think Dr. King would be one bit happy.

I TOOK MY MOTHER to the Columbia County DDS last week and being from south Augusta, could not help but notice how cluttered and dangerous the roads and area have become. I am grateful for the quiet and beautiful area I live in. I’m glad I did not follow the pack.
