Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, we are failing our nation’s veterans on a daily basis, and we have to do more to get them back on their feet.

QUESTIONING THE president’s faith ... how Christian is that? NOT! People who claim they are Christians but waste time and angst on putting down every other religion ... obviously there is NO God if one does not slap those people down with a lightening fork.

A HUGE RAVE TO all those responsible for bringing the wonderful events that have been happening at the Evans Towne Center Park especially the awesome concerts! Keep up the good work! (Hint: Goo Goo Dolls and Matchbox 20)

I WENT TO A COLLEGE football game and there was no loud profanity, no drunks passed out on the sidewalk or urinating in public, no men in their 60s barking like a dog, and no trash or beer cans on the ground around the tailgaters: Then I realized I was in Statesboro and not Athens!

A HUGE RANT TO the driver of the pickup truck who was speeding and tailgating on Bobby Jones Expressway. When I was going 61 mph in the right lane and you were on my bumper, I wondered what you were late for. Then you made a wild move, got in front of me and sped away. A few minutes later I saw that you had just wrecked your truck and thought now he’s really going to be late!

FIRE MASON AND Lockett! They want to demand the taxpayers of Augusta pay for another holiday for city workers. Mason and Lockett don’t work for their money now. My husband is a veteran and he has to go to work on Veterans Day. Mason and Lockett might believe they are entitled, but I say No!

I AM TRULY disappointed in The Chronicle for not having a story on the front page about our courageous military personnel on Veterans Day. Surely someone on your staff could find a heartwarming story about a veteran to share with your readers. They deserve to be honored on this day. To ignore them completely is totally unacceptable.

WHAT’S HAPPENING IN the world today? The latest in Augusta is a priest dipping his hand in the kitty! Stealing $1,700, which is certainly not small change, should bring a stiff sentence to say the least. Let’s hope that this does not get “swept under the rug” just because he is a priest.

It's OK to give a known

It's OK to give a known terrorist country the ability to develop nuclear bombs but it not OK to let a law abiding citizen own a pistol or rifle. I'm getting confused again.

With the help of Obama Iran

With the help of Obama Iran should be able to build their nuclear arsenal and destroy Israel within the year. I know many of you anti-semitic and anti-zionist will be glad all those folks are dead and Israel no longer exist but that is sick.

Online Library

The new Bexar County, Texas online library is interesting. Incidentally, I lived in that county for a couple of years. It's San Antonio, Ft. Sam Houston. It's pronounced BEAR. Anyway, I'd go further than simply getting the books out of the building, I'd do away with the building. Who these days doesn't have some type of device to read books online? Just have the books available online for residents. It's time to use the technology and save BILLIONS.

Remember MCG-RU Animal issues of last week?

According to headlines today if they had been filming a Hollywood
movie it might have not been reported.

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/feature/

I am guessing PAYING for that "NO Animals were Harmed" film credit
decal is cheaper that actually having to do it. When it comes to Movie Makers and the AHA, / ASPC's willingness to help out Stars, Producers, real life production staff romances, or the $$$$ that the group and the monitors get paid to sit and watch the filming.

I also called in to dispatcher and got the lady with the attitude. File a complaint, well now the only complaint I want to file is against her.
No excuse for rude, what is she there for anyway?

Appreciate Y'all Even More

There's a certain story that I'm glad the people I respect left alone. Are we adults or what? We have a good idea what happened and don't need to rub it in, make jokes about the death or ask embarrassing questions.

Ranter 2 I do not have to

Ranter 2 I do not have to question President Obama's faith. His shameful behavior towards Israel tells me everything that I ever need to know about him. The fact that it doesn't you... tells me everything I need to know about you.

I don't worry about President

I don't worry about President Obama's religion. I don't question his or anyone elses. That is between them and God. I do think it is a crying shame that many who claim to be Christians have no Christian values.By that I mean people claim to be Christians, but they don't do what Jesus taught them to do.

"I have been away too long."

Yes, Willow, you have been. And you've been missed.

No plans to move to Columbia County, but I have recently purchased some property in that fine county and plan on spending time there whenever I can fishing with the grandkids, sitting around campfires, and letting them explore all they want. May even be able to pop a cap, or two, with CG from time to time.

Then....Should we not look at what Jesus actually taught...

"........but they don't do what Jesus taught them to do."

Our Lord Jesus warned about those who would come as “sheep in wolves’ clothing.”

“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes, nor figs from thistles, are they? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit; but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits” (Matthew 7:15-20).

This is the work of wolves....they spew their doctrine contrary to Christ...then seek to silence those who disagree with them by attempting to shame them, using twisted scripture and their own God against them.

As Christians, we are called to be bold in things of Christ. Not supporting Israel is to go against God.

Actually, it's very Christian and VERY smart. Just listen to Christ Himself when he said "By their fruits, ye shall know them."

Well, how in this world are we suppose to KNOW someone, without discerning their behavior and what they PRODUCE!! Obama has absolutely in NO WAY, stood up for Jesus Christ, but he certainly has twisted scripture to fit his own agenda!! I'm very grateful to God that He gave me the wisdom to discern the CLAIMERS from the actual Christians.

myfather15! Where does one get the idea that being a Christian means you check your brain at the door and lay down to be the doormat?
