Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

RAVES TO AIMEE COPELAND. I applaud her courage. I have six daughters of my own.

OBAMA SAYS THE US is ready to attack Iran. Israel can do it better.

PLEASE, SOMEONE, run against Sheriff Hunt.

TO THE PERSON who blamed Obama for the so-called billions going out to other countries: At least it is billions less than what Cowboy Bush threw out in weapons and other expenses when he dumped us into two wars. Obama got us out of those, thank goodness.

I CAN’T BELIEVE THEY showed the uncensored version of Forrest Gump at North Augusta High School. That movie is full of vulgarities.

WHY ARE THERE so many residents in Tara Heights off Golden Camp Road who won’t take their trash cans from the curb after trash pickup? Pick up the trash in your yards and take in your trash cans.

ACCORDING TO SOME recent rants, there are too many people watching fantasy movies. They need to get off their butts and go to work and get off their wealth envy trip. If it weren’t for the taxes the “rich” are paying now, there wouldn’t be money to support your government handouts.

I HAVE BEEN a patient of six or seven dentists in the area and noticed that the hygienists do not wash their hands before applying gloves. This should be a standard practice. I think someone should be monitoring these dental practices.

BEWARE: THOSE LETTERS you get with checks for $1 or $2.50 are a scam. Don’t cash them. Don’t send them money. I received two from two different charities – the veterans and breast cancer. I immediately checked them out with the Better Business Bureau.

WONDER HOW ALL the folks who rushed to judgment about the Trayvon Martin case are feeling now that the evidence proves that Martin was on drugs at the time and was beating up Zimmerman? Funny how truth tends to silence protests and marches.

ALVIN MASON’S trial was postponed because Alvin “needs more time” and “breathing room”. The last I had read, he could not wait to arrive in court to prove his innocence. If I ever have a case there, I will arrive and ask for the Alvin Mason deal.

Ok, What if he smoke weed. Smoking weed is a crime and not walking down the street. It does not take away the fact that he was minding his business until someone decided to follow him and act like a police. Yes he should have been able to protect himself.

"I CAN’T BELIEVE THEY showed

"I CAN’T BELIEVE THEY showed the uncensored version of Forrest Gump at North Augusta High School. That movie is full of vulgarities."

I'm just wondering which parts of the movie this ranter considers to be "vulgarities".

#4..The withdrawal of troops

#4..The withdrawal of troops began before Obama was even elected...also the "surge" that Obama claimed changed things in Afghanistan was already in the plans....

("September 11, 2008 |
September 11, 2008 |
President Bush announced Tuesday withdrawal of 8,000 troops from Iraq by February. He also called for a "quiet surge" in the number of U.S. troops in Afghanistan. The President outlined his plan in a speech at the Naval War College.)

The "checks" scam sent through

The "checks" sent through the mail have been around for years.
Report them to the postal authorities.

userone, just curious, were

userone, just curious, were you there to see that Trayvon was minding his own business? Do you know for a fact he wasn't walking around the residences maybe looking suspicious? If I remember correctly, wasn't it raining, that's why he had his hoodie on? Do you know for a fact he was on the sidewalk walking home, or could he have been snooping around, looking, while talking to his girlfriend on the phone?

You wonder how people rush to judgement....are you including yourself in that group, because no one really knows what happened that night between George and Trayvon.

Good Morning America,

You are right, Nobody was there that night, but you have some on here who posted that they know beyond a reasonable doubt that is was Trayvon who was yelling for Help. They heard the tape.

Time Cards

Good morning, Seenit. I didn't spend much time reading or commenting over the weekend.

Speaking of sheriff candidates, I wonder why no one has asked the candidates whether they support ADP or not? Sheriff Strength had ignored and rejected the ADP timekeeping system for the antiquated good-ole-boy system. We need to know which candidate will get with the program — the ADP program, that is.

Llamb....that time card thingy is a tricky theeeng.....some want it & some don't......they probably won't talk about it till they have to...

JTF...whatcha mean they don't want posters .....they NEED us MORE than we need them....well sorta...kinda...maybe...if they keep messing with us we might have to show them who really runs this place.......we need a poll to ask the readers just how important the posters are on here.......of course we will have to have a fair judge to count the answers......someone who won't be biased in any way....I "think" Sean would be fair........:) Honest injun..

In the immortal words of Sgt. Hulka....Lighten up Frances!!!

Someone is actually complaining about Forrest Gump being shown to High School Students???

I could understand the complaints if the movie were shown to elementary school students and maybe even middle school students, but high school students?? Let me respond to the ranter with a quote from Forrest himself........"Stupid is as stupid does!!!"

Posters

Seenit, there are not many posters on here. Check out the AJC. Thousands. There might be, might be 20 regular posters on here. A few yrs ago, it might have been 50. Certainly not worth the trouble monitoring and upkeep of the site.

Why is the high school showing Hollywood movies to students at all? They need to be drilling them on math instead of watching movies!

Gone bye bye

Well some posters left because they were thrown over the cliff...yaknow whatta mean....they didn't want to go.....& some just got mad with certain theeeengs on here....

Usually I have found that many come back.....sooner or later....I could help them with adding interest here if they would just give me some freedom on here....stop being so uptight about postings funnies here...

For instance ......once we have smarties working in AC with the designs & extras on here ...we could see bubbles coming from some posters like soapy.....a golf ball slamming from JTF.....a gun shot from Cgee.....a 18 wheeler roar from Roadkill....and sparkles from seenits posts......on & on....if Llamb wants a lamb baaaaa in his post so be it!

We could add soo much here....if only......some may doubt me on this BUT trust me...I know some in design & you just wouldn't believe what they can do now.....OUTSTANDING stuff.

Profitability

Again, pure speculation on my part, but I.T. budgets are being cut everywhere and with newspaper business declining, I figure the cost of maintaining this site doesn't justify itself.
OK, got to board this flight. See ya.

Honestly, once the site is

Honestly, once the site is set up, there isn't a great deal of maintenance. Or at least there shouldn't be.

To Rant 4: Obama has been in office long enough that any issues or problems are firmly his. Stop attempting to hide Obama's failures behind a person who hasn't been in office for 3 1/2 years and will not be in office at any time in the future.

To Rant 10: The amount of drugs in Martin's system ruled out recent drug use. Zimmerman was at fault in this killing.

When the court decides, there is going to be a lot of Red Faces and overturned cars.

Forest Gump

I noticed several comments about the movie questioning the use of the "vulgarities" comment. I suppose if you don't find the language offensive you wouldn't notice the vulgarities, I did, and it is. I would not have allowed my child to see it either. I will not watch any movie that profanes the name of God. Just sayin'

Demonstrations

I think so, too, CG. There will be demonstrations in the streets when the acquittal comes in.

Do you notice how the prosecutors and the media are trying to make the story about racial profiling instead of self-defense? In Florida, racial profiling by a civilian is no crime. Neither is following someone.

Vulgarity

Thank you, toldyaso. Today's popular culture is so base that many people don't even recognize vulgarity because their own behavior and speech are vulgar in themselves.

The teachers who show Hollywood movies to their classes are not providing a quality education. They're just killing time.
