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.

Here comes Socialism, here

Here comes Socialism, here comes Socialism, on election day. C'mon criminals, c'mon homeless, OBAMA is the WAY. All down-trodden, and all college kids, make your voice be heard. Tell all you freinds and register the dead, to help elect a turd. Here comes Socialism, here comes Socialism, Barry needs your nod. Comb those communities, register the criminals, ACORN works for your God! He may be black, he may be white, he may be Muslim too. He may break bread, with the leader of Iran, But he says he loves the Jews. Can we trust him, to be honest? Did you check his past? All these issues , need truthful answers, Before that VOTE you Cast. He'll take your guns, and your bibles, and give you taxes too. Promise you Heaven, But put you through Hell, that's what B. O. will do.

Thanks Marandan! I've already sent it on via email to many others. I had thought that it should be sung to the tune of 'Here comes Santa Claus'. LOL

My problem is if people would

My problem is if people would stop filling up gas cans then people that ACTUALLY put the gas in their cars would have some. And as far as the people driving kids to school sometimes the busses dont go into neighborhoods because they live to close to schools I would feel safer driving my kid than let them cross a dangerous road and get hit by someone who doesnt pay attention to the speed limits in school zones. Another comment for the person saying the police arent doing there jobs about the license plate...Gee as a citizen I would rather them chase down criminals who have actually done a major crime than wasting gas,time and tax payers money on chasing the "tag altering vehicle"

Marandan, we'll have to ask Newtothegame to work on that idea. He is musically and electronically gifted..... Again thanks for the repost though I'd be stunned if it is not removed later.
