Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:


WE SHOULD HAVE kept the RiverHawks in Au­gusta and sent our sorry commissioners to Macon.

THE MAN ACCEPTING the free lunches was dressed in a Masters shirt. If his family can afford a shirt like this than they can afford food and not take it from people who truly need a free meal.

WE CUT BENEFITS FOR our veterans, no raises for the military and cutting our Army, but we are not stopping payment to illegal aliens. This is what illegals receive every month: $1,500 per child, $500 for housing, food stamps and in some states free education, including college. Let’s wake up, America. Turn your computer on and read it yourself.

I AM CONFUSED. What is the difference between all the different Muslim sects that are fighting? What do they represent and who is paying their bills back home while they fight?

A BIG RAVE TO THE workers at Walgreens at the corner of Washington and North Belair. They are very friendly and very competent and willing to help you.

RANT FOR NEIGHBORS who think it is so hilarious that their teenaged children destroyed someone’s garden.

THERE HAS NEVER been peace in the Middle East, and there will never be peace in the Middle East. Enough lives have been lost and tragically changed because of this war.

IF I WERE A HIGH SCHOOL civics teacher, I would make The Augusta Chronicle editorial page mandatory reading.

HILLARY, YOU ARE NOT off the hook. Would it make any difference to you if Chelsea was in uniform and was killed?

THEY WILL ALWAYS BE fighting in the Middle East. We need to stay out of it and strengthen our neighbors in that region. Remember, the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

WHY IS BARROW TRYING to help the veterans now? He had years to do it. He is scared of losing he is seat. Hopefully he will.

R#1 .... Two maybe 3, of our commissioners are worth keeping.

I could not pass off the other 6 or 7 misfits on any other city
and live with myself.

Not even SF, Washington DC, or Detroit.

Charter vs. Comcast

With in the next year there will be no difference.

According to my Charter installer, Comcast is buying Charter and bumping up the rates once the deal is closed?

After years of Vet's contacting their congressmen.

Finally an ELECTION YEAR ROWS around and they are willing listen.

Like the Ranter indicated They have had years of complaints from Vet's and NOW they finally act?

What other reason is there than Re-election?

Obama's War against Citizen Minorities & US Poor.

FACTS
Illegals take US Jobs,
Work for lower wages,
and many collection or use Government or private group benefits meant for US Citizens.

There are an estimated 15 MILLION ILLEGAL WORKERS in the USA as of today.

That 15 Millions reducing the $$$ available to distributed to Minorities and our poor in need of help.

WHY aren't the Liberals up in Arms over employers hiring 15 Million illegals and paying lower than Minimum Wages?

Why aren't Liberals protecting US Citizen Minorities & Poor from the economic harm caused by Illegal immigrants.

Why isn't the often called Minority President Obama looking after US Citizen Minorities and the Poor, instead of promising to sign a mass amnesty which will cover 24+ MILLION.

An Amnesty which will over burden the Government assistance budgets and increase taxes.

An Amnesty which will increase the Unemployment rates inthe USA.

This Amnesty will only harm Minorities and the Poor.
Why aren't they protesting?

nocnoc: they aren't
Unpublished

nocnoc: they aren't protesting because this is part of the democratic ploy to get more votes in election years. even though the illegal can't technically vote, they will still find a way to get them in to the polls come election days, much like they did dead people and convicted felons in the last two elections. and despite all their kumbiyah chants and phraseology that spouts like diarrhea from their mouths, the dems really hate america and the average non-democrat american joe and joe-ess. the democrats want to destroy america and start their own new world, with only one party, and it looks like they are well on their way to doing so, unless the rest of us get a backbone, stand up, and do something about it.

Some are doing something!

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Homeland Security buses carrying migrant children and families were rerouted Tuesday to a facility in San Diego after American flag-waving protesters blocked the group from reaching a suburban processing center.

The standoff in Murrieta came after Mayor Alan Long urged residents to complain to elected officials about the plan to transfer the Central American migrants to California to ease overcrowding of facilities along the Texas-Mexico border.

Many protesters held U.S. flags, while others held signs reading "stop illegal immigration," and "illegals out!"

"We can't start taking care of others if we can't take care of our own," protester Nancy Greyson, 60, of Murrieta, told the Desert Sun newspaper.

Many of the immigrants were detained while fleeing violence and extortion from gangs in Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.

After the buses were blocked, federal authorities rerouted the vehicles to a freeway and then to a customs and border facility in San Diego within view of the Mexico border.

nonoc, go try to hire someone

nonoc, go try to hire someone in the lower wage sector and you will see why the illegals are working. You can't because they would have to give up their welfare checks or they will want to be paid in cash. They are also so used to the free money that they are really lazy and slow at the work you want them to do. The welfare checks and benefits should only go to the old and truly needy. If they are cut out then there would be no need for as many illegals because the freeloaders would have to work. By the way, I do agree with you that no welfare money should ever go to any illegals and the buses should be turned around and those children should be sent right back to their home country.

If the Fed's wanted to really help

Exempt the Minimum Wage earners from all Taxes except SSA.

Allow EBT/SNAP collectors to earn up to $25,000 with the clear understanding they will lose EBT/SNAP after 1 year as they become a productive part of society.

BTW: spend the morning chilling out

Using a small picnic table with a built in chair in the near middle of 43 wooded acres behind my house.

Sat and drank coffee from a thermos and listen to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Déjà Vu.

Thinking a little MOUNTAIN or URiAH HEEP - Demons Wizards
and some early morning fishing tomorrow.

Usually biz

They admire their guts-spunk-dare devil ways...even if they don't agree with them 100%.

Some are soooo honest with their true feelings too. Some wonder how any can actually work since they are on here so much..haha

I have told them that Riverman actually goes to a Waffle House everyday & goofs off....making others think he is working at a mind bending job.....hahaha

Only two musicians have a hit record as a solo artist, duo, trio, quintet and quartet. Neal Young is one. Who is the other? No fair googling.

Speaking of Walgreen's.....I

Speaking of Walgreen's.....I heard yesterday that they will be moving their corporate headquarters to Switzerland. With Obama and the Democrats running all the clean companies out of the country with taxes and the EPA running all the manufacturing out of the country with over regulation....where are they going to get all of those corporate taxes from now.......and a lot more people are going to be working those "would you like fries with that" jobs because the few good jobs that are still here are leaving in droves...and taking their taxes with them.

Oh yeh, and the people hired to work in the camps where all of the illegal alien children are being housed.......the government made them sign non-disclosure agreements under the threat of being prosecuted if they disclose how much communicable disease is being carried by these children.....not to mention scabies and lice so bad you can see the bugs crawling on their faces. Swine flu, tuberculosis, measles, etc. And they are taking these children and putting them on commercial buses to distribute them around the country. Next person that rides the bus gets lice and who knows what else.
