Rants & Raves

RAIN OR NO RAIN – the grass on Bobby Jones Expressway needs to be cut. It looks terrible.


RANT TO DR. FRANK Roberson and the Rich­mond County Board of Education. It is great to defend furloughs, but please explain why no other counties in Georgia have more than five furlough days, but Richmond County has had nine for the past two years? Haven’t all counties had state funding cut? It sounds like poor management to me.


GEORGE ZIMMERMAN is acquitted by a jury of his peers. The prosecutor said they presented a poor case. Congress sticks its nose where it doesn’t belong. Justice bows to pressure and will decide whether they should try the case as a civil right case. Maybe we would be better off with a dictator.


QUEEN ELIZABETH officially approved of homosexual “marriage.” She’s also supposed to be the head of the Church of England, which, if it’s following the Bible, teaches that homosexuality is an abomination. She’s old enough to know better. Though we should forgive those who sin against us, the Bible does not teach us to approve of sin.


DETROIT WENT LONG enough without paying its bills, so now it’s gone bankrupt. Guess who’s next? Obama’s federal government. What do the leaders of Detroit and Obama have in common? All are Marxists and believe the absurd Keynesian economics lies. They really believe that something can be made out of nothing.


A BIG RANT TO the “neighbor” who called mosquito control! Miss Goody-Two-Shoes did not have the intestinal fortitude or the backbone to speak to me about my pool; she did what any sick and cowardly person would do; she calls Richmond County Mosquito Control and then tells me via Rants & Raves that when the water has turned green, “maybe it is time to treat it, neighbor.”


I USED TO WONDER why law-abiding citizens didn’t hit the streets in protest of the verdict in O.J. Simpson’s murder trial. And then I understood. We have jobs and couldn’t take the time off.
