Rants and raves

MR. CARL, of Savannah River Keeper Inc., is "surprised" to find trash in the Savannah River? If he's such a hot keeper, why didn't he already know? Besides, he's never been elected to keep the river that his group appears to think they, and they alone, own. Maybe he should just quietly watch the river from the perspective of nature rather than politics.

OBAMA CALLS socialism "opportunity." It's Obama's opportunity to become a dictator.

RAVE FOR THE Columbia County Sheriff's Department for holding a citizens firearms course. It is a great community service.

WHOEVER WAS IN charge of designing the new approach to Bobby Jones Expressway from Scott Nixon Drive should be fired. It is not clear at all.

RAVE TO THE CHILD who spoke up and told she had been touched inappropriately and the mother that cared enough to believe and file the necessary paperwork to put this person in jail.

A RAVE TO the gentleman who paid for two very senior citizens' dinner at Golden Corral on Oct. 29. Thank you.

SOME COMPLAINED THAT Sarah Palin can't pronounce nuclear. Maybe she has never heard Jimmy Carter pronounce it.

I WOULD LIKE to know how much money the city of Augusta could save if we got rid of Fred Russell. The only thing I've seen him do is propose raising our taxes.

I'M CALLING ABOUT Glenn Hills High School. I don't think Glenn Hills is a bad school, but I think the children that go there need some parents to guide them.

A RAVE FOR a salesman in customer service at Toys "R" Us. My grandson was looking for a Thomas the Train outfit for Halloween and she referred me to another store and I found it and I made him very happy

WE ALREADY HAVE socialism here in the United States. It's called Social Security, and if we're smart, we'll get rid of it finally and quit wasting the taxpayers' money.

When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic. Sell not liberty to purchase power. - Benjamin Franklin

Response to the ranter

Response to the ranter concerning the Bobby Jones layout I will add my amens to that but would like to include in the firing process the person or persons who came up with the genius idea of on and off ramps being one and the same...Now that is an accident waiting to happen...Oops already has...In fact they happen everyday...Yep the designer needs a lesson in "how to ensure traffic merging safely"...More coffee you say...Yep...That is the plan...:-)

Gator Raid, The Government

Gator Raid, The Government had to pay "Face Value" for the money it Minted back then. Nowadays they only pay twice what it's worth.

I've paid into SS all my working life (50 years) and plan on starting to draw it in January. I sure don't want them to take it away now. Let's be fair about this.

Fear not my friends. Social

Fear not my friends. Social Security is safe. Only Republicans have ever tried to rob us of that. President Elect & ShelShel's baby's daddy is a Democrat. Dems always protect SS. Besides in a mere 16 months we will be saving 10 billion per month on the Iraq War. And he will balance the budget in his first term. Obama 08. Toot, toot...Thanks for mentioning my DAWGS, tuleez. But I really don't want to bet on anything with Gatoraide. He wins really well....LOL

Hello and good morning all.

Hello and good morning all. I don't have much to rant about this morning. But with firearms safety being a topic this morning, I will submit this classic firearms instructional video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZE3QAeYRk-A

Ranter No. 2, we already had

Ranter No. 2, we already had two dictators in power, Pelosi in the House, and Reid in the Senate. At least we had a president that would veto their plans. Now we have a third dictator that will go along with them to usher in Socialism and take away our rights to free speech and dissent.

Can you guys imagine the fear

Can you guys imagine the fear in Kentucky this morning???? I'll bet the Wildcats were up shaking in their boots last nite. My mighty DAWGS, preseason #1 in the world, are about to unleash one enormous can of whoop azz on any team who fails to score more points than us. I love my DAWGS!!!

rbk,factchecker,and PT, I'm a later years Boomer(64) The effect our generation will have on SS is kinda like the effect the Yucatan Meteor had on the dinosaurs. And by the time I get to retirement age it will be like the five miles of meteor tail that was still travelling through the atmosphere as the first mile had already made impact, The damage will already have been done.

Tujeez, I wish I could have

Tujeez, I wish I could have retired early. I'm still going to have to work full time a few years while I draw SS just to finish paying off my mortgage. I would have started drawing it at 62 if they would have let me draw it and not penalize me for working full time. I would have only drawn two SS checks for the whole year. A lot of people that take it at 62 would continue to work while they draw it if they weren't penalized, and the employer and employee would still be paying into the system. The SS admin. is too stupid to realize that they would be ahead of the game then.
