THIS IS A RANT FOR all conservatives who have chosen to stay home and not vote. You become the greatest complainers about who wins elections. I say to you, get up off your butts and vote. Conservatives lost the last presidential election because 4 million of you did not vote. You have another chance. You can make a difference in how we control our county government.
RANT TO THE PERSON in the SUV passing on double lines in construction zone on Mike Padgett Highway. The speed limit is 35 mph. Maybe the next time police will catch you and you will get an expensive ticket.
AS I EAGERLY anticipated attending the Augusta Outdoor Expo this weekend, I was equally distraught to find a sign at the entrance prohibiting concealed weapons. Everyone was being scanned and all handbags were being searched. All items were being confiscated. I have to ask, “How does this possibly improve safety?” This is the result of the actions of a few fearful people who cannot differentiate between good people and bad people.
SHAME ON ALL THOSE working at the Augusta VA who received bonuses over the period when people were dying there due to the lack of attention. Since you really did not earn those bonuses honestly the right thing to do now would be to pay back the money. The annoying part is that those bonuses were paid out with taxpayer money!
LET’S HOPE THAT there is no plan to have those illegal immigrants from Central America locate to this area. I will the first to volunteer to protest. Obama has created such a mess maybe he needs to take a few hundred to the White House?
SURPRISE, SURPRISE. The Iran nuclear talks have been extended by four months! The initial agreement was so flawed it was not an agreement. Iran has no intention of giving up its nuclear program and that was obvious from the start. John Kerry says that they have made “tangible progress,” which is baloney.
THE GOP’S LAWSUIT against President Obama is a sham. It’s nothing but a theatrical, taxpayer-funded attempt to distract voters from the true obstructionists: Speaker Boehner’s right-wing majority.
WHAT HAPPENED TO the Malaysian Flight 17 was horrible but nobody seems to remember the US accidentally shot down a passenger plane. On July 3, 1988 a missile fired from a naval ship accidentally shot down an Iran Airlines Airbus with 290 on board.
