Rants and Raves

KUDOS TO THE Westobou Festival! I've so enjoyed the concerts. And this year's Arts in the Heart was fabulous. One thing I might ask of the chefs/cooks for the popular booths: Is there any way to arrange for more ovens and/or cookpots? The Phillipines were running long lines and the Jamaican beef patties by the Caribbean folks kept selling out as soon as they came out of the oven.

A BIG RAVE to Wayne at Lakeview Towing Service in Louisville, Ga. Wayne drove to Augusta to rescue me with two gallons of gasoline after I realized I was on empty.

WHY AREN'T SCHOOLS being postponed? People need to conserve gas!

RAVES TO THE nice, young man at the Evans Wal-Mart who, off the clock, took the time to help me move a few heavy bags of pet food into the back of my truck.

WHEN PEOPLE ARE lined up outside their banks, trying to collect their FDIC-guaranteed savings and bank accounts, they will realize that the government shouldn't be bailing out private interests.

A RANT FOR PEOPLE getting gas when the line is backed up. Please get your gas and move on! Some of us have jobs and schools to get to.

HEADLINE: "Augusta violates (federal) air rule." To heck with federal air rules. Various federal "standards" are right now destroying our economy.

ASHBY KROUSE III is punished with two years' probation and a $2,000 fine. Where is justice? Flown!

A RANT TO THE woman who backed up to the gas pump in the wrong direction and blocked people who had waited for so long before her at U.S. Highway 25 and I-20. You are what you are.

A RANT FOR THE jerk that stole the walker out of the 88-year-old woman's parking place in Woodbine West.

IF YOU CAN'T figure out Columbia is EAST on I-20, and Atlanta is WEST on I-20, perhaps you shouldn't be driving, Sparky.

Let me make sure I've got

Let me make sure I've got this correct - Somebody "suddenly realizes" that there is no gas in their tank and calls a service in Louisville to come help. So the tow-truck guy makes a 90 mile round trip to deliver 2 gallons? I think I've found some more Obiden '08 supporters....... g'mornin namasta and all.

Here's a rant to all those

Here's a rant to all those folks who helped create the economic crisis: Quit living beyond your means! Here's another rant to all those credit card companies who send you pre-selected and pre-approved applications for credit WITHOUT checking your credit....DUH! I hope every one who got a card like that spends and you never get repaid. Serves you right for trying to raise quotas based on bad decisions....sorry about those who have legitimate credit affected by that practice, but those greedy companies need to learn to do their job right...or fail. Another rant to all the dishonest folks who scalped everyone by overcharging for fuel, especially BP on Washington Rd by the National who consistently charged 50 cents or more higher than all the other stations within a mile or more...and a rave for the new 'D' station who is selling gas w/o ethanol...runs great in my Ranger. Happy Birthday Naisha...you know who you are. "Grats on graduation and certification. Still praying for that car you need...God bless all and have a super Sunday.

Allen's sells worms, crickets and minnows too. We need more old-fashioned stores like that. They get a lot of business from me.

I've heard of stealing cars and bicycles, but a walker? They should have called the cops right away. The thief could have been picked up at the corner of the parking lot while they were waiting for a boyscout to come along to help them across the street!

About the Federal Air Rules.

About the Federal Air Rules. We all need to pay better attention to the Clean Air Act. These fees WILL get passed on to the public, as Blondie put it," One Way, Or Another" That should be the DEMs theme song, silly me, already is. I think ALGORE thought that one up. He's so Modern.

IMO it is obvious that if the walker was left unattended in the parking place, the 88-year-old woman didn't need it!

NLA, perhaps the the elderly

NLA, perhaps the the elderly woman was being assisted into the car's passenger side and while getting her settled the walker was momentarily forgotten. Once they arrived at their destination the absence of the walker was realized and upon their return discovered it stolen. She may very well depend desperately on her walker in order to get around. Now a thief has it.

I saw a vehicle last night

I saw a vehicle last night with a tag (AVE 3036) that has the Georgia Peach covered up with the circular Obama logo. How are the deputies missing this violation? Georgia Code - Motor Vehicles & Traffic - Title 40, Section 40-2-6 states "any person who shall willfully mutilate, obliterate, deface, alter, change, or conceal any numeral, letter, character, county designation, or other marking of any license plate issued under the motor vehicle registration laws of this state; who shall knowingly operate a vehicle bearing a license plate on which any numeral, letter, character, county designation, or other marking has been willfully mutilated, obliterated, defaced, altered, changed, or concealed; or who shall knowingly operate a vehicle bearing a license plate issued for another vehicle and not properly transferred as provided by law shall be guilty of a misdemeanor."

We don't need to postpone school. If parents quit driving their kids to school & highschoolers quit driving themselves to school that would solve the problem. Sometimes I wonder why we even have buses.

Drive down Lumpkin Rd. and

Drive down Lumpkin Rd. and you can see OBAMA signs on Church properties, but because of where it is, noone complains? Why is that? Oh the double-standard.
