Rants and Raves

IF YOU ARE moving to North Augusta and have middle school-age kids, let me give you some advice -- do not send your kids to Paul Knox Middle School. After four kids going through Paul Knox Middle School and then North Augusta Middle School, there is no comparison. Paul Knox was once a great school but is now run by bullies and staffers who don't want to hear your problems.

I TOTALLY AGREE with the comment on Sunday about Clearwater Fire Department. They are a joke. They run other districts' fire calls. I think the assistant chief is using one of the fire vehicles as a personal vehicle. Finally, Bath Fire Department covers the house next door to Clearwater's station.

A RANT FOR American vehicle manufacturers. When repairs are needed, when the vehicle is under warranty, you just put people off until the warranty expires. No wonder people buy foreign vehicles.

THE ETHICS DEPARTMENT at SRS is a joke. They work for the people who pay their salaries, and when the people who pay their salaries do something unethical, they look the other way.

YOU KNOW YOU are getting old when you use your medicine dispenser to tell you what day of the week it is.

SHAME ON YOU, Hillary Clinton; your lies and omissions should make all the American people enraged. You mention health care for all Americans; means the taxpayers that have an education and have struggled for their good-paying jobs have to pay for those who didn't get an education or who won't work.

I have struggled as a disabled American. I have struggled to get where I am today, own my home, paying for my family's health care coverage. I struggled to get where I am and did not have the privilege of my fellow taxpayers paying for my family, even though I am a double amputee. Why should we as American taxpayers pay for those that make a living from raping our government's resources? Why should I have to work two or three minimum wage jobs for years and years so that others who won't get off of their butts, get an education, work hard so that they can provide for their own, including adequate health care?

As I listen to her I am disgusted about her comments that jobs are going overseas. Thank her husband for NAFTA; that's the biggest reason that jobs go to Mexico (even though Mexico is not overseas). Hillary and Obama are trying to persuade our young people with their views of a socialist America.

Shame on you, Hillary and Obama. Shame. Shame. Shame.
