Rants & raves

Comments from our readers.

UNDER THIS Obama presidency we will finally learn the truth about UFOs.

RAVES TO BARACK OBAMA for referring to himself as a "mutt," as I've also heard cool, young people, including sophisticated military brats, do. What a wonderfully humorous way to make a good, positive statement about America!

WOULDN'T IT BE GREAT if Plaxico Burress could be Michael Vick's new cellmate? They could practice five-foot pass patterns all day long. "Hey, Plax, do a curl route at the end of the bunk." "Dang, Michael, is that the only play we've got?"

KUDOS TO THE Columbia County Board of Education transportation department. What an inspiration it is to walk past your bus drivers as they hang out, smoking, in front of the gas station, with their buses idling away the diesel a few yards away. Great image, BOE!

RANTS TO THE commissioners for passing budgets without any questions. When did they scrub the budget and where was the public?

IT'S A SHAME Ms. Paschall would charge the taxpayers all that money. Some of that money could have been used for the needy in our area. That's just too much.

A HUGE RAVE TO Kelly Business Printers for completing and delivering a big order the day before Thanksgiving.

THIS IS A HUGE RAVE to RCSO!!! Thank you for making Augusta safer!!! If not for you all we would be overrun by evil!

IF THE TRUTH BE known, Mother Teresa was probably a bitter old broad.

A HUGE RAVE TO the president-elect. In the few weeks since the election, he has shown great strength of purpose in his resolve by not waiting for Jan. 20 to begin to working on the fixes needed to bring about improvements in our way of life.

RANT TO LEGISLATORS who are pushing a law targeted at kids who do text-messaging while driving. It's a good law and should apply to everyone.

WE SHOULDN'T ALLOW THE licensing of two new reactors at Vogtle until the nuclear waste issue has been solved. Do you trust them, big business and the government, to do the right thing?

RAVE TO THE workers in Columbia County voting annex. I voted twice, most efficient operation I've ever seen -- quick, courteous service.

nuclear reactors are safe,

nuclear reactors are safe, and it is just the mentality that you have that has gotten us into this situation, relying on foreign oil,

Many folks in Columbia County

Many folks in Columbia County voted in both the general election and the runoff. I realize it's a strange concept for many Richmond County voters since Obama wasn't on the ballot for the runoff. G'mornin, ya'll.

commissioners are trying to

commissioners are trying to figure out what to do with a SPLOST surplus of over a million dollars. Well a few more retreats, increase their fuel allotment and issue themselves newer cell phones and delay just a bit longer and that amount will be about $6.35 and then what a fight that will be as to who gets it.

No more nukes means more

No more nukes means more dependance of foreign oil. The tree huggers need to back up a few paces and look at the forest.

RE: "Mother Teresa was probably a bitter old broad". NICE! She spent her entire life working with the poorest of the poor that no one else would touch. How sick is the person who would malign her 10 years after her death by calling her a "bitter old broad"?

I'm tellin' ya, you are

I'm tellin' ya, you are seeing the rise of the anti-Christ. "Obama, who will not assume the presidency until Jan. 20, is the FIRST LIVING politician to have a holiday declared in his name. In response to criticism that Obama has not assumed office yet and hasn't had a chance to follow through on any campaign promises, Turner said, "He has done something. He won the election. Regardless of how his presidency goes, we're not celebrating his presidency. We're celebrating the event that put him there." As a keynote speaker in 2004, Barack Obama called himself a "skinny kid with a funny name." Now, only four years later, that funny name is APPEARING ON PUBLIC BUILDINGS AND BIRTH CERTIFICATES."

there should be in home

there should be in home visits, white trash, to ensure that people like you don't tie their dogs to a tree and toss them a bone every couple of days.
Posted by palomino9 on Thu Dec 4, 2008 9:46 AMI have not only rescued many animals from abusive environments, but I have also taken in strays. I have paid vet bills for animals that were not even my own, so do not, and I repeat, do not question my love for animals.

To the KODUS for Columbia County. Have you also noticed the buses parked at Walmart, with no driver and at several Columbia County restuarants in the area?

To the Raver re Obama's

To the Raver re Obama's greatness...what are you thinking of? He gets on the airwaves, tells all he has "a plan" to fix whatever is the topic of the day, then provides NO SUBSTANCE...the "plan" remains a secret. Obama is not going to "save" anyone or anything...he ran for the Presidency for the prestiege it brings to the holder of office and nothing more. The only thing Obama has done so far is select his future Cabinet members; if you notice, he is selecting those who have the experience he lacks because he doesn't know how to govern or determine what type of decisions will be necessary to resolve critical situations.

To the raver for RCSO. The prudent exercise of your Second Amendment rights and something more than minimal executuin of your civic duties would go a long way to keeping us all safer and making RCSO's job MUCH easier.
