Rants & Raves

FOLKS, STOP WHINING about high prices until you trade in your trucks and huge worthless SUVs. Stay home. Visit with your kids. Or maybe call your parents!


ON THE RANT and rave about the lifetime politicians. The only way we're ever going to get them out of office is demand it be on the ballot that we vote for term limits for all politicians. If the president of the United States has term limits and only can serve for eight years, all congressmen, senators and local government should have a term limit.

A HUGE RANT to the "no good" who brutally beat a lady in south Augusta recently. I have personally known this fine lady all my life and my heart goes out to her and her family. I wonder if she will ever be able to recover physically and emotionally. The "no good" deserves to rot in jail.

HEADLINE: "Tax will increase gas prices by 3 cents." Over the years, professional politicians have learned to pass laws that later will automatically trigger raising taxes without those politicians having to vote for it, thus the pols claim they didn't raise our taxes. Georgia even has a "fiscal economist" (Heaghney) who says, "The state didn't vote to raise taxes." Of course, previous pols DID set the whole scam up; and it is a SCAM. And the whole story never mentions one name of a politician other than Gov. Deal and he's only mentioned in an offhand way. Who are the bums passing such automatic tax increases? News media, name some names!

S.C. DEMOCRAT POLITICIANS claim that for a voter to PROVE he is a legit voter by producing an easy-to-get document "supresses turnout by minority, disabled and elderly voters." Then they argued that "... supplying a free photo ID will be expensive." Life ain't free to anybody but politicians and communists!

WE ARE QUICKLY approaching the economic condition known as "stag-flation" where prices continue to rise even though supply exceeds demand. The only other time in our nation's history that we experienced this phenomenon was when Jimmy Carter was in office. He wasn't a good president, either.

THIS IS A RANT to my principal who didn't congratulate me or allow a small party in honor of me winning the Golden Apple Award. Maybe you're just jealous. No one ever nominated you for anything other than the fly in the ointment!

I THINK HALLS OF FAME should be funded by those who are famous. Why should taxpayers have to pay to honor rich and famous living people? I'm sure museums are doing enough as it is to educate people about the arts and sports as well as history. So why don't we throw the money to museums, where there's more of a draw for diverse crowds? Our local museums do a top notch job of it with limited funds as it is.
