Rants and raves

CATS ARE PESTS and here's why: Cats will poop and pee in flower beds, in vegetable gardens, on the floor and children's sandboxes, leave dander all over, kill birds roosting in trees at night, leave hair all over the place, leave tracks on cars, scratch furniture, climb on roofs and kill frogs. If you love your cat, keep it away from your neighbors and animal control won't pick it up.

A RAVE FOR the Bell Auditorium for bringing Gordon Lightfoot to Augusta. It was the best concert I've attended in many years. Thank you, Mr. Lightfoot, for the best wedding anniversary gift I've ever received, and thank you to my husband for 42 wonderful years.

I KNOW WHY the Republicans are crying and whining so much. It's because they know that they were wrong in supporting that appointed liar Bush. President Obama has so much more class then the Bushites. President Obama is going to lead the country back to the greatness we had before the Republican years.

OBAMA SAYS "Americans know they ... (must) live within their means and pay what they owe." At the same time he pushes for easier credit for those who are too stupid to realize that. He blames the problem on credit card companies that were forced by government to give cards to lousy credit risks. Now the credit card companies have to come up with ways to protect their investments, and Obama calls the companies the bad guys. That's a lie, and Obama knows it's a lie.

I HATE TO SEE people out of work, but I am glad to see the auto industry suffer. The price for a car is ridiculous. The housing market is the same way. Medicine, drugs, gas, insurance ... poor people can't survive so I hope it gets so bad that a new car costs $3,500 again and a house is $15,000 or less.

WHAT AN IDIOT! This is for the lady driving the gray Mazda convertible on Saturday. I hope you got where you were going safely after cutting through the gas station at Evans to Locks and Belair roads and then cutting through the Lowe's parking lot like a crazy person!

TO THE PERSON who says that posting the county salaries shows that county workers get paid for doing nothing, I'd like to say get real! You are probably drawing disability for a hangnail and are too lazy to work!

RANTS TO THE VAN that passed me on old Wrightsboro on a double yellow with oncoming traffic. Had I or the car coming toward us sneezed we would all be dead today.

TO THE RANTER who said that "single unwed mothers" have no self-respect. Why didn't you also rant about the single unwed fathers? Unless these girls got pregnant by themselves, there are just as many single unwed fathers out there.

willistoned - LMAO! You keep outdoing yourself. It started with "Bush stole the 2000 election" and hasn't slacked off at all. I realize you were just a teen and that was before your lifestyle changing revelation.

The contractors need

The contractors need consultants to train their field crew and oversee their projects, it increase the production and saves millions. These independent engineering firms are pushed around by the project managers, because the independent engineers report to and are paid by the project managers. The executive management also needs a consultant that reports to them and controls the weaknesses of the Project Management. It it called internal controls, which companies lack.

I am sure that the mall will go out of business because a few voyeurs are upset that they cannot rubber neck at a crime scene. I guess you left your houses and ran over to gawk at the dead bodies being removed from the apartments?

"Unless these girls got

"Unless these girls got pregnant by themselves, there are just as many single unwed fathers out there." When I had classes in biology I was told that a female could only have one pregnancy at at time while, at the same time, males could have caused pregnancies in more than one female. Let me be clear that I am also disgusted at the behavior of irresponsible unwed fathers

Good to know that we have

Good to know that we have individuals on this post that can accurately identify a person with a true disability or that has a need for a dv or dp tag. My point is that you never know what a person's disability is. Maybe they don't need to exercise and need a scooter to be mobile because of a medical condition that prevents them from being a size three. Mind your business and remember they didn't go to Walmart to get the tags. And BTW, I am not sporting a dp tag.

gee, i wonder why everyone

gee, i wonder why everyone waits for me to leave every afternoon to come on and attack me? i like a scrap just like all marines do. we do it in the mud, in the car, on top of the car, and under the car.( don't try to figure that one out women just giggle and dream of fabio while your short, fat, bald husband is sitting watching a nascar race with a can of beer, and a bottle of fabreeze nearby.i'm all male there uncle milty.i won't prove it to but will to your wife, but like nicholson said in " a few good men" she'll have to ask me nicely. hey trouble that hurt, probably as much as it does when you get in and out of a chair doesn't it? so you're what 2 snicker bars away from weighing 275 lbs? still trolling the bus station for soldiers on the weekend? irish when we take cheney and buffoon down we will unravel many secrets that this gov't hides from you morons. i will never let you forget how naive and gullible you nuts are.break time.

The likely reson you see more

The likely reson you see more Disabled tags is....as people age, they tend to become forgetful. After being ticketed for parking in a handicap parking space for not displaying their temporary permit, alot of disabled people just go ahead and apply for the tag. We "baby-boomers" are aging, and I shudder to think what these "do what feels good-ers" will turn this place into when we have left the realm of influence.

Remember OBama promised you

Remember OBama promised you "change" if you voted for him. At the rate he is going, check out your pockets in another six months, and you will find "change", no real money, just change.

Cats can be pests, but they

Cats can be pests, but they make good pets.We don't let our cat outside anymore. She never bothered the neighbors, but she has no teeth now. It is not safe for her to be outside. She became a member of our family about 12 yrs ago, and she was grown then with a litter of kittens.If you notice, anyone who does not love cats are hard to get along with.

Obama wants to give us all of

Obama wants to give us all of the same things California already has. The same free medical care for illegal aliens and people that won't work. The same welfare benefits. The same emission standards for our cars. The same huge taxes on EVERYTHING. And guess what? California is dead broke. No hope of recovering. And yesterday the taxpayers told the state government where to go. Every policy that Obama wants to implement has failed. His policies have failed in Europe, failed in Canada, failed in Russia, and failed in California. Take these tax and spend liberals out of congress in 2010 and take Obama out in 2012. All of his policies have been tried and have failed and have financially bankrupted the governments wherever they have been tried. California had the largest TEA party yesterday. We need to back up those courageous voters by writing the president and our congressmen to say NO BAILOUT for California. Make them live within their income, as the federal government should do. Our TEA party comes in 2010. When the most liberal state in the union says NO MORE TAXES then the rest of this country needs to pay attention. Even they recongize that taxation has gotten ridiculous.

San Fran Nan is gonna dance

San Fran Nan is gonna dance her puppet boy across the stage and try and bring the rest of us down to their level. It's gonna be interesting...... "Let us model our nation on the greenest state in the union which also happens to import the most energy and have the highest debt". Good thinking!

This gentleman says it very

This gentleman says it very well. Most people do not realize that a "dealership" is, in effect, a contract with a manufacturer that the dealer has to BUY. Running a dealership also means that the mfgr gets to dictate how you do business, including making you do things that will cost you money. In sum, the mfgr might have caused you to incur millions in expenses in, say, the last 2 - 4 years, which is money that you will never see again if the mfgr suddenly, randomly, eliminates your right to call yourself a "dealer," the right for which you PAID the mfgr, and which costs the mfgr NOTHING, but rather EARNS money for the mfgr. Anyway, as I said, this gentleman says it very well: http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2009/05/letter_from_a_dodge_dealer.html Are we feeling STIMULATED yet???
