Rants and raves

  • Follow Metro

A LOTTERY DONE properly and honestly will decrease the deficit in this country and may help the health plan, too.

IF THE REPUBLICANS WANT to win elections, they should take religion out of their politics.

RANT TO DR. BEDDEN and the Board of Education. My child has to wait in the cold for the bus, get on a cold bus, then go to a cold school.

GEORGIA SHOULD HAVE state car inspections. Cars that have no brake lights, one headlight or blowing out smoke would have to get fixed or off the road.

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT continues to push Marxism. And nowadays, they're not even afraid to say it openly. Goodbye to freedom.

WAKE UP, AUGUSTANS! Every day the local government talks about more "SPLOST" money as if YOUR tax money grows on trees.

STATE GOVERNMENT is broke, so Perdue wants to spend more rather than less. He's already conned Georgians to put part of MCG in Athens, costing zillions. Now he wants to spend more to build a "Medical Education Commons." What the heck does he mean by a commons? A little pasture so the new doctors can graze?

GIVE THE MAN a shot before you shoot him down. Every president ever has said what they will do and then didn't do it. Let Obama have his day.

I WAS A Chronicle subscriber until it decided that people who live in rural CSRA can no longer receive the Chronicle through the mail. There are those who can't get out every day to purchase a paper, and, believe it or not, not everyone owns a computer. Please reconsider this decision.

PERDUE DOESN'T want to raise taxes; he merely wants to raise "fees" for Medicaid funding. "Fees!" Ain't that still money?

GOVERNMENT LOVES euphemisms. Rather than hold a meeting to raise taxes, the Augusta commissioners are gonna hold a "tax workshop."

INSTEAD OF FIXING UP Regency Mall, condemn it. Take it then, fix it up, like other property you take when you need it.

Take religion out of politics? What would that do to race pimps like the Rev. Jesse Jackson and the Rev. Jeremiah Wright or whatever Rev. du jour the left is promoting?

I've been up for a few hours (as always) - I'll check back at my "normal" time with something that is hopefully amusing. That blatant ad just caught my attention.

patriciathomas: the car

patriciathomas: the car inspections in GA were NOT "racially motivated," but the policy was unfairly used. There were too many exemptions that benefitted the more elite and targeted those who were in the lower-middle class and less fortunate. As you know, there is a racial mix in each of the social classes that comprise this community.

A national lottery would

A national lottery would create more revenue, but look at the people that generally play the lottery. That would be levying a stupid tax on low income or no income people.

Okay, go down to the

Okay, go down to the Salvation Army or one of the shelters and get your child a proper coat instead of a hoodie. "Instead of fixing it - condemn it then fix it"??? Huh? When I'm in a gun fight I try not to let the other man shoot first, the results can be painful. I feel better about SPLOST money actually being spent since they already took it. Medicare- "Money for nothing and your chicks for fees". Okay, off to install microwave ovens.... G'mornin, namasta and all y'all! Have a happy Hump Day!
