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.

I was on my way to a three

I was on my way to a three alarm fire when I ran into my third grade teacher. He had been charged with setting fire to the house in my old neighborhood where all the kids used to play, but now it's a crack house. I called the cops, but it takes them 23 minutes to respond (I time them each time I call). Anyway, I want to organize a group to keep him from going to jail because sometimes cats are misunderstood because they live in 30906. Yesterday, four new bodies were found next door to my second cousins house. I knew something fishy was going one. I have been alerting the secret service for the last 2.5 years about the foul odor. All I got was a do not disturb sign put on my door at midnight. I kept dropping the packages off at the house from the clippings I saw in magazines. I was really working for the CIA. I even had my own agent assigned to me. Nobody else could see him but me. He and I knew it was a case of life or death. I send signals to him thru the r and r's in the paper also. I see dead people in the tv. The police call me to find out where the bodies are. Hip hop hippy to the hippity hip hip hop ya don't stop hopping to the bang bang boogie said up jump the boogie

Angie if you like a guy that's part Professor and part Gilligan, than I think you must be a very likable person yourself. I'd like somebody like that, too.

no sneaky is just parodying

no sneaky is just parodying some of my posts. He gets a kick out of it. I enjoy reading his parodies because at least they are fiction, so I can get a laugh out of them, unlike mine, which unfortunately I've had to live through.

My feet are already burning,

My feet are already burning, but never worry. I have eleven degrees. Instead of using them to my benefit, I choose to roof houses. As we all know, most multi degreed men roof homes in 10o degree heat. It is a way to make ends meet in this time where educated men like myself cannot a job worthy of our educational undertakings so we 'find ourselves' better suited or better yet eve moreso thereof even though moreover benevolently hitherto and though neither nor come what may say what you will we shall overcome the racist race baiting racers rice aroni cocka doodle doo shimmy shimmy sham can ya hear me now and that's what I mean!!!!!! Now, for those of you that have no idea what I mean, it's because you have not taken the time to educate yourselves. So, got out and get a job as a roofer and become educated. As soon as I can make this rhyme, I will become ordained like Jesse and get paid for this mumbo jumbo and I can speak in that style of rap that gets me claps and point my faaangers with which I invoke aaanger. I am on my way hello, to see all my fine fellows...

Let me add a little fuel to that fire, the smoke at Bobby Jones and Peach Orchard roads that was billowing into the air around noon time was a woods fire. Happy now?

Oh no. Chronicle is swiping my style. Stating the obvious. "Augusta in severe drought." Oh well, some people ignore the obvious, so I don't blame the chronicle for banging us overhead with it.

This reminds me of some

This reminds me of some posters - Frank was excited about his new rifle. So, he went bear hunting. He spotted a small brown bear and shot it. There was then a tap on his shoulder, and he turned around to see a big black bear.
The black bear said: "You've got two choices.
I either maul you to death or we have rough sex."

Frank decided to bend over. Even though he felt sore for two weeks, Frank soon recovered and vowed revenge. He headed out on another trip where he found the black bear and shot it.

There was another tap on his shoulder.

This time a huge grizzly bear stood right next to him. The grizzly says: "That was a huge mistake, Frank. You've got two choices. Either I maul you to death or we have REALLY rough sex."

Again, Frank thought it was better to comply. Although he survived, it would take several months before Frank finally recovered. Outraged he headed back to the woods, managed to track down the grizzly and shot it.

He felt sweet revenge, but then there was a tap on his shoulder. He turned around to find a giant polar bear standing there.

The polar bear says:
"Admit it, Frank, you don't come here for the hunting, do you?"
