Rants and raves

IF YOU THINK about it, some people can't walk and chew gum at the same time. These are probably the same people who are trying to drive and talk on the phone at the same time.

SO NOW, STATE legislatures claim they are against the Real ID program, and they want the feds to pay for them. But if the feds pay, that means the Real ID program will happen. Besides, where do the feds get their money? From taxpayers, just like the state geniuses. If states get their way, the feds will pay for the program and we will all have more of Big Brother on our backs.

A HUGE RANT for all of the people who call Southerners "uneducated rednecks." Why did you move to the heart of Dixie? If you are as intelligent as you would like to believe you are, you should have researched the area. In the words of Lewis Grizzard, "Delta is ready when you are." I'm sure my hound dawg and I will survive without you.

HOW CAN A PERSON be pro-life and support the war? That's like trying to have it both ways whenever it suits your politics. We were not attacked by the people of Iraq.

RAVE. WE TOOK OUR grandchildren, 8 and 5 years old, to the Golf Hall of Fame for Sunday's Easter egg hunt, and we had a wonderful time. Story time was about Peter Rabbit, and face painting was nice. We also marched in the parade. The Easter egg hunt was awesome. Thank you all who set it up.

WE SHOULD KNOCK OFF all the whining about price gouging during Masters Week. It's purely a business thing. The restaurants have to double or triple their staff and security help. Let's let them get it while they can so they can be easier on us the other 51 weeks. If we shut up, the visitors won't know the difference. If we can't handle it we should eat at home.

HOW TO END global warming? Have the folks in D.C. stop talking.

And to start the day off, a

And to start the day off, a little ditty by the Bard to all who feel like spewing their hate today...this is for both sides:........ Macbeth's Soliloquy:::: To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day, To the last syllable of recorded time; And all our yesterdays have lighted fools The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow; a poor player, That struts and frets his hour upon the stage, And then is heard no more: it is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.

I have come to the conclusion

I have come to the conclusion that blacks and whites will never agree on anything. That's why we need complete and total seperation from each other. That way we can learn from our own faults. There will not be any hate crimes, lynchings or racism period because we only have to deal with our own people. HA!!!! I 'm just playing, white people will still find a way not to do work. They will probably make the poor whites slaves and start the process all over again

If the black community

If the black community (adults) are so against The Vulgar & Women Degrading Rap? Why do you not insist Sharpton & Jessie start a boycot against them & the music industry ??? I bet they will NOT DO IT!!! THEY ARE LIVING IN THE PAST & THEY ONLY HAVE A HARD ON FOR WHITE PEOPLE!!! So would someone answer this for me...The black community comes together to fight any evil they think a white man has commited so why not go after your own??? I ask all of the black community to call or write Sharpton & Jessie, tell them to get on TV & start the ball rolling...BOYCOTT THE FILTHY RAPPERS & THE MUSIC INDUSTRY...IF THIS HAPPENS & MAKES THE NEWS I & A GREAT DEAL OF OTHER WHITES WILL NOT SEE THE STORY OF GOING AFTER ONLY WHITES SO ONE SIDED. If Sharpton & Jessie will not do it I would think the rappers donate a great deal of $$$$ to their cause of the day !!!

If Imus had to apologize to

If Imus had to apologize to the women of Rutgers. Wouldn't it be fair to say that Sharpten should apologize to the duke lacross team. This would not be the first time that sharpten started something throwing the race card out there where inocent people have been hurt or even killed.

This proves my point

This proves my point POLITICALLY........You're mad that black people are starting to pay attention to the wrong doings and starting to speak up. You feel that any black person that expresses his or her opinion is a trouble maker. You would rather us staying quiet and saying yes suh massa. NOT ANYMORE............and if you don't like it........TOUGH!!!!

Kim I think you are right the

Kim I think you are right the black and white tax money
should be seperated .Welfair for blacks could be payed
from black taxes that should cut out the line of 300 pound
blacks when I go to get a loaf of bread. that be a very good
way for you people to lose weight As long as we have people
that think like You, Shapton and Jackson there wont be any peace between black and white. Some where this needs to
stop and we all work together to make this a better and happer place to work and live

FYI Black churches have been saying this for years. Don't buy their records. The people that continue to buy from these artist obviously don't have a problem with it.

Kim protesting is fine as

Kim protesting is fine as long as it is peaceful that is your right. But when the individuals chanting thier slogans start inciting the crowd start burning cars, pulling people out of their vehicle and trying to kill them, and just plain taking the law into thier own hands, thats when you start showin your true colors.

Sharpton and Jackson aren't

Sharpton and Jackson aren't the problem. It's people like you or me who say hateful things like is being said already. Things like insinuating about welfare, food etc. Why did you have to say that? Being hateful and meanspirited is your decision.

Rockey you are right we

Rockey you are right we should seperate tax money, but let's put a twist on it . Move all the poor black people from the Downtown area and move them to West Augusta in the rich neighborhoods. Then take all the rich white people and take their money, place them on welfare and medicaid and let them stay in Hyde Park and the poor areas of the downtown area. so people can see how both sides live and have a little more respect and compassion for each other. I bet one thing Deke copenhaver will bust his butt to clean up the Hyde Park then, he cant have his good white folks living like that

kim706..That's not it

kim706..That's not it speaking out is good but the black leaders only go after white's. Can they not find time to clean your own house??? Just call Sharpton & Jessie see if they care about The Filthy & women degrading rap. Like I said above Imus is an amature compared to the men of your own race. AND TO MAKE IT CLEAR I COULD NOT CARE LESS ABOUT IMUS IT'S NOT HIM IT'S THE CAUSE !!!

I can think of a few filthy mouthed white rappers off the top of my head Mr. Ncorrect. Freedom of speech dear, people have the right to say what they want. That is why you can post that bs you just wrote. They are not violating anyones rights, if you don't like it don't listen to it. I think we should be more concerned about these racists trying to violate our right to freedom.

And people I used to work at the welfare office and there are more white people down there than blacks. And I don't mean employees. And when Sharpton and Jackson bring up racism they don't make racial slurs.
