Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

Comments from readers:

A HARLEM CHURCH had a food giveaway, but they had police standing at the front of the line. That intimidated the poor people and the food was stale. Don’t treat poor people that way.

RANTS TO THOMSON Medicare. The lady is not nice to the seniors.

TO ALL THOSE WHINING about the cancellation of the Mayor’s Reception. That decision was not made in Augusta. It was made by people who think they know best. They don’t want Augusta to be a party town for the Masters.

I WOULD LOVE TO leave the Augusta area, but I can’t sell my home and I’m stuck here. I’m losing my life savings because the value of homes in Richmond County is at rock bottom. To sell you have to give your home away.

NOT EVERYONE IS geared for college.
Years ago we had tech schools that graduated young people into great job markets with job skills.

THANK YOU, Augusta Chronicle, for those wonderful editorials. It is what we all feel.

OBAMA WANTS TO rule the world. Now he is butting heads with one of his Communist counterparts. I say that Putin is more of a man than the one we have in the White House. What happens in Russia should stay in Russia.

TO THE PERSON complaining about coughing in church. Did it ever occur to you that some people are suffering from severe allergies? They are not contagious. If I had to leave the room because of my allergies, I could never leave my house. I hope you now have a better understanding and thank God you are not me.

FOR THAT PERSON thinking it’s the Republicans that don’t know how to run a war, let’s all remember Vietnam. It was run by the Democrats, not Republicans and was a disaster of a war.
Do you REALLY want to get into which party is the worst at running a war?

OBAMA HAS CEDED control of the Internet. Can Obama really be that stupid or is this a part of his plan for world government?

HAVE YOU NOTICED the big media now speaks casually of the Big Bang theory of creation as though that it were fact?

AMERICAN POLITICIANS and big media speak of medical insurance like it’s a constitutional right, which of course, it isn’t. But it is straight out of Lenin’s play book.

A recent news article stated that Dr. Azziz “helped” with the merger of MCG and ASU. He didn’t help, he rammed the merger and horrible moniker down our throats.

To the person ranting about the lady’s annoying, constant cough while in Church. Frankly, whoever wrote this needs to understand that she could have asthma. Give her an A+. She was in Church.

Intimidating Poor People????

Cops do not intimidate poor people, they intimidate criminals. If you are uncomfortable around a cop, there is probably a reason, and it is probably your fault.

"THANK YOU, Augusta Chronicle....

....for those wonderful editorials."

Wholeheartedly agree.

The Editorial page on the AC is the finest I've ever seen.

Party town for the Masters

I beg to differ with that rant---they want the party in downtown....but it ain't gonna happen!

The party people are very selective & have their own ideas about partying.

flashback to peter alan green:

Can't help about the shape I'm in
Can't sing, I ain't pretty and my legs are thin
Don't ask me what I think of you
Might not give the answer that you want me to

Now, when I talked to God I knew He'd understand
He said, "Stick by my side and I'll be your guiding hand
Don't ask me what I think of you
I might not give the answer that you want me to"

Oh well, oh well
Well, well, well, well

Well

I also Like the AC Editorials but the part "It is what we all feel." would be more accurate if it did say "It is what we Majority True Americans feel." The word "ALL" makes it untrue. Just look at some of the comment that are made on here.

The way things are in America today, If Putin were to ask for America, our "great whatever" would say, OK, as long as I can be your second in command.

Got many things to do, so y'all make many book comments and tear each others hair out.

“Cows emit a massive amount of methane through belching....

....with a lesser amount through flatulence....”

And Obama plans to regulate it.

Farting cows just aren't PC enough for the democrats and, apparently, they think they can improve their manners.

" the value of homes in

" the value of homes in Richmond County is at rock bottom. To sell you have to give your home away"

You got that right. It's hard to look 25 years into the future when you buy a piece of property. If I had known about the remote possibility of Consolidation, the demographics of Consolidation, the George Patty South End tax grab, Section 8, and Marion Williams' ilk back in '89 I would have paid the extra buck and bought land out around Appling. I'd be sitting out there with CobaltGeorge and feeling sorry for those who didn't get out of RC in time.

Richmond County Real Estate Values....

...are declining? News to me. I'm no expert, but I don't see it in properties around where I live. True, they haven't fully recovered from the democrats' intentional, massive debacle of a few years ago, but they seem to be on the way, even in spite of Obama Administration policies and legislation like Dodd-Frank.

I don't see anything unique to Richmond County. North Richmond County seems to be doing just fine right along with most other areas.

Cows.

"apparently, they think they can improve their manners."

The Democrats have never improved anything. They just look for the next thing to demonize so they can TAX it. The price of your hamburger is going up MIDDLE CLASS America. Cow Fart Tax.

It's similar to a Rain Tax. Find something no one can control and then tax them for it.

Cow gas

I was going to say they will ban cows, but Dichot is right; they will tax it instead to further gouge the working people.

The Vietnam War was run by

The Vietnam War was run by democrats? Excuse me, but give repubs credit too. I remember Richard Nixon was elected in 1968 and the war lasted through his 1st term and most of his 2nd term till he resigned.

This is to those who continue

This is to those who continue blasting our President on Russia. What do you want? another war? Do you remember the Cold War?We did not fight a war back then. Peace is much better than being a warmonger.

Vietnam

Escalated by Democrats, de-escalated by Nixon. But that is neither here nor there; it was never a war we in to win regardless of which party was in the Whitehouse.

As long as it is peace through strength and not capitulation, I'm all for it.

Wars....

We haven't won one since WWII. Our citizens don't understand war and our politicians haven't the stomach for it. They use the military as a tool to prove their own toughness.

The current President intentionally assured we'd lose in both Iraq and Afghanistan and that we aren't able to either protect ourselves adequately, or speak with a voice of authority around the globe.

Makes me physically ill what we have become.
