Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

A RAVE FOR THE ID card section at Fort Gordon for excellent service. Always efficient and pleasant, even to difficult customers.

THE COURT RULING favoring Hobby Lobby is truly one of the most horrific, sexist campaign tactics I’ve seen this cycle. We have to face this sort of right-wing sexism head on. We ignite change by getting pro-choice Democratic women elected to office.

RAVE FOR RICHMOND County police. We came home from vacation and stopped to get a bite to eat downtown. We came back to the car 45 minutes later and two of the three bikes that were on the back of my car were stolen. Within 30 minutes the two boys were caught and the bikes, along with another guy’s bike, were returned. The police were very fast and happy to help us out. Everyone talks bad about downtown, but the police have a strong presence down there and do their best to keep the patrons safe. Great job!

HUGE RAVE TO Jennie Phillips at Brandon Wilde. She was so helpful to our family recently, and she is an awesome director. I wouldn’t want my mother to be anywhere else but Brandon Wilde. Thank you for your care.

DEMOCRATS AND establishment Republicans are murdering the American way of life. The invasion from the South will overrun the rest of the nation with welfare sucking uneducated, disease-ridden masses. Get your head out of your TV reality shows and pay attention. Your kids and grandkids will be living in a Third World hovel once known as the greatest nation on Earth. Close the borders. America first!

I AGREE WITH Augusta Commission member Grady Smith that Broady should be removed from her job. She should not be given another job dealing with animals.

I AM SO GLAD Harry Reid (the Democratic Senate majority leader) and President Obama have assured America the border is secure. Could you imagine how many people would be entering America if the border wasn’t secure?

THE WORLD OF charities few people know: Many good people have the best intention, only to run into requirements that prevent the neediest families getting help. There are people who try to get something for free. But there are some of us who are pushed up against the wall. Some of us really must have help. Some of us cry when everyone, even the church, turns its back.
