Rants and raves

JUST A COMMENT on the person who claimed they have "legally" carried a pistol for two years without a discharge. I, too, am licensed to carry a handgun on my person; however, I carry it in a holster. I just wonder how he/she has managed to drop and kick their gun? Perhaps they should invest in a good holster and leave it there. I sure wouldn't want my gun going off in my waistband! It tends to ruin your day ... big time.

IT'S SAD WHEN we lose a "good guy" like Tim Russert. Genuine and respected, but mostly, intellectually honest. Even though he was a Democrat, he seemed to be equally tough to both sides. As a Republican I respected that about him. Too bad there aren't more journalists that are able to put their personal opinions aside in order to get to the "real" truth.

OBAMA KEEPS SAYING, "I'm gonna do" this and that. Is that arrogance or just stupidity? A president has to go to Congress to do most things, particular with taxing, etc., which is what he was talking about.

BUSH WANTS A NEW Marshall Plan for the Middle East. The old Marshall Plan gave a lot of American tax money to Europe. Maybe that was good; don't know. But to give money to the people who control most of the world's oil is surely as nuts as a "leader" can get.

A RANT TO TRASHY youth in Harrisburg who walk past garbage cans and toss garbage onto the sidewalks and in our yards. If we kindly ask them to please pick it up, they get belligerent. The answer is gentrification. Displace these nasty people with better people. Invest in Harrisburg and lets push out the low-rent riffraff.

WHAT HAPPENED to For Better Or Worse in the Sunday comics?

IF THE HARRISBURG Kroc Center is going to be a success, Augusta needs to build railroad overpasses on Broad Street and the River Watch parkway. People who might go to the Harrisburg Kroc will not deal with waiting for a long train. Instead of spending bucks dreaming up new ways to spend money, city officials should fix the problems that we have now. Railroad overpasses are long overdue.

THANKS TO ALL of you that are working and paying Social Security so I don't have to work, and can go fishing today.

HUGE RAVE FOR Ken at Magic Carpet Cleaning. He did an excellent job cleaning the floors of my rental property after a less "superior" company had cleaned it twice and left it looking dingy and stinky.

Here lately anything that does not meet the approval of Woodside homeowners is banned in Aiken. I am sure that if they could they would get rid of the Wal mart.

For the person tanting about Osama promising everything and thinking it may be hard to get all his crap through Congress. If both Houses and the Prez (him) are controlled by the DIMs, he will indeed "change" this country to Marxist socialism.
