Rants and raves

RAVE FOR THE Christmas banners that were located at many of the Richmond County intersections, which included south Augusta! WOW! Now a suggestions to "One Up" this incredible idea: Use the same hardware and hang banners that will HIGHLIGHT Augusta during Masters Week.

RANT FOR THE Augusta Commission for still not repairing the huge bump at the Georgia end of the Fifth Street Bridge. Another to the AC for not following up on their published article on this same complaint!

POOR STEVE SPURRIER. Getting smashed by Iowa. You gotta feel sorry for the Old Ball Coach these days. Naaah!

EVERY DAY ALL THESE RANTS about what everyone else should do get a little old. I think if we spent half of that energy on how to make our own lives better instead of being hip deep in everyone else's business, we would be a lot better off.

NO MATTER IF WE wear a white sheet and light a cross in the name of racial purity or dress in black and carry weapons in the name of "justice," hate and ignorance are wrong. They must be stopped before our communities are destroyed.

RANT FOR SOUTH CAROLINA Gov. Mark Sanford for his unwillingness to accept federal money for unemployment benefits, What an idiot.

NOTICE HOW OBAMA does as he pleases already? He claims he is not yet president, so don't weigh him down with problems like Hamas. But then he turns around, still not yet in the White House, and "tells Congress to move on stimulus." That's the way Obama's gonna be, folks. He talks out of both sides of his mouth. It'll only get worse.

JUDGE BLANCHARD POSTPONES the hearing for the brother of Justin Elmore. The brother has apparently been convicted of cocaine crimes and obstruction of a cop. Why should this brother suddenly get a three-month reprieve? Political correctness continues to reign.

OBAMA ALREADY PLANS TO SPEND another few zillion dollars that neither he nor we the people have. Alas, you still can't spend your way out of debt; you must do the opposite -- SAVE! Why can't our politicians learn this? Because it would take away some of their personal power, the thing they ran for office for in the first place. There are enough inflated egos in Washington to make the Earth float out of orbit. Maybe that's behind the weird weather.

Posted this once, not sure

Posted this once, not sure why it did not appear... Just a little lexicon for some of the folks out there who clearly don't understand the whole Israel - 'Palestinian' situation: http://townhall.com/cartoons/2009/01/08/5

Good Friday Morning to all.

Good Friday Morning to all. I'll be brave and honest today...Gator fans can celebrate but my heart is with the Sooners...Sam, Sam...WHY? Gators defense 'chomped' down on the Sooners and it was enough to send them home wanting. My Sooner Pride is wounded. Yes, Tebow did 'earn' the chomp penalty...but he had no shame and I have to concede that if it had been me, I would have done the same. Grats to all ya'll Gator fans...now let me go crawl back under my Schooner that lost its wheels last night....my eyes are 'RED' from crying....Ya'll have a great Friday anyway. I'm busy eating my words today.

CBBP, wouldn't taste so bad if it weren't stuck in my throat. Needed some Gator tail and RED sauce but I guess they were all out.

Gotta say though Switzer got

Gotta say though Switzer got it right at half time when he said if the Sooners lost the game it would go back to the two 'holds' the Gators put on them in the 'RED' zone during the first half. That Gator defense was so tight...Gotta love a game as good as that one last night.

"Early morning rumors" have

"Early morning rumors" have it that Tim and Brandon Spikes are coming back and bringing the other guys with them, much like the BKB team did to get 2 in a row and 3 outta 4. I don't expect anything to be official until everybody sobers up and the parades are over - that's still a few days away.....

Better buy a big supply of T

Better buy a big supply of T Tissue with your stimulus check, because the "mess" is going to get very deep, before it is flushed out. Illegal drug dealers will profit more than anyone else from this "package."

Yeah. We'll know by next week

Yeah. We'll know by next week most likely. Now I've gotta go cry in my 'RED' beer. I shudda wore my old Sooner sweatshirt to show my support...alas I couldn't find it...Couldn't help but notice the tears swelling in Sam's eyes toward the end....Even the coach had to maintain a 'stiff upper lip' cuz it looked like his bottom lip quivered a few times while he kept his teeth clenched. The trip home has got to be miserable.

President elect Obama wants to create 800,000 new government jobs. Why doesn't he just re-instate the draft?

JoJo...the draft would make

JoJo...the draft would make me leave. I have two boys that age I'd rather have them skip the whole 'war' experience. I prefer to enjoy my sons being with me and not shooting or being shot at. Besides the draft wouldn't work for rebuilding infrastructure since there are so many other out-of-work folks who would have no problem working on roads etc, but are too old to be drafted. Besides, can the gov't implement the draft for an illegal war?

I think on Fridays he sets up the "discount sunglasses, DvD's, sneakers, hoodies, shoe shine, nails and hair weave salon" tent downtown and pretends it's "First Friday". "Free Car Wash while you shop!"
