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.

milton1874 @ 6:56 Congress has been really busy investigating steroid use by basebal players. The important stuff has to be investigated first.

Colcamp1 actually I can start

Colcamp1 actually I can start on the missus' and regardless of who she has been to see or ever will be to see the inappropriateness of gifts that she and he have presented here and abroad show little class and even less taste. Videos, Iphones, model AF1 copters are tacky beyond belief. We won't mention that the missus broke the protocal of not touching the Queen, her tastless and inexcusable wearing of shoes that cost more than the total food she packaged, her desire to be a celebrity wh^$e and who knows what else..

Did anyone see the View today

Did anyone see the View today and how that Fox News commentator was proven to be a flat-out liar about Barbara Walters? Even Elisabeth Hasselbeck couldn't defend him. Barbara ripped him a new one. It was Glenn Beck. Whoopi called him "a lying sack of dog mess".

Well, at least he admitted it. Pelosi still denys it. If you have ever listened to Glenn Beck he also makes sure he says that he is not a journalist (reporter) and all views (views, not news) are his own. Reporters, who are supposed to give us the unbiased truth have not done that since Obama came on the scene.

I have views, too, but to out-and-out lie about someone? I don't need to lie about people. What was that about, anyway? What a small person he is. How unseemly, for one adult to lie about another. Yuck. I didn't even know who he was- I don't watch cable news- but this wasn't about his views, he was relating an incident that didn't happen how he said it did. How immature and disgusting. He's just two-faced.

How in hell do you blame the

How in hell do you blame the President about the condition of the helicopters that he inherited? As for touching the Queen or not, that is between her and the queen, not some butt hole in Augusta. I guess she could have always vomited on her. Bottom line, stuff happens and only the anal retentive of us all, will make a mountain, out of a mole hill.

Nero...but then, THEN, they

Nero...but then, THEN, they brag about how they're able to spend less to get all these projects done...I swear to Obama, I don't know how liberals can even get around, holding all these self-evident contradictions in their heads. ----"We're going to spend a HUGE pile of money we don't have, in order to create more wealth, the more/fast we spend, the better, BUT, we're so happy that we're spending less on this project, that project" (ummm...then how is it "stimulative"?)----"48% of Americans think that their income tax rate is about right BUT 49% of Americans effectively pay zero tax" (yeah...I think that the tax i paid on my lovemonkey getaway with Maria Sharapova was about right, too...)----"We have to pass all the stimulus spending right this very second or else unemployment will go to 8.8% and automakers will go bankrupt BUT when the index goes to 8.9% and 2 of the big 3 go bankrupt, it's because the stimulus is working!"----"George W. Bush was the worst ever - $5T in debt, Guantanamo, military commissions BUT Barack Obama is a demigod because of $2T in DEFICIT, Guantanamo, military commissions"

I mean, it's pretty sad when

I mean, it's pretty sad when the president gets CREDIT for not releasing photos that would have damaged national security... Wasn't it Chris Rock who used to tear into dads who said, "I take CARE of MY kids!" And Rock would say, "You're SUPPOSED to take care of your kids! You don't get a gold star for that!" I can just see all the Obama supporters, "Our president did NOT release photos that would help train al-Qaida operatives on how to resist American interrogation!" Here...take your gold star and shut up. How about, "Our president did NOT force private companies to take $ they did not need or want and then attach ex post facto conditions to that money, our president did NOT force preferred stock investors to take $.29 on the dollar while giving the UAW $.55 on the dollar plus ownership of half the company, our president did NOT break his promise to post legislation for 5 days before signing it, did NOT break his 'no lobbyists' promise, did NOT break his 'I will veto any earmarks' promise, and did NOT brag about $17Bn in 'savings' after ridiculing McCain for proposing 'only' $18Bn..." Well, I guess you'd have to get Pelosi to say all those things...her pants are already on fire...

Congress on Wednesday sent to

Congress on Wednesday sent to President Obama a bill that makes it tougher for credit card issuers to raise fees and interest rates.

The move caps a years-long crusade by consumer groups and Democrats to rein in what they say are abusive practices that prey on consumers. The approval came despite strong objections by banking industry advocates, who say it could result in tightened credit to Americans.

The House voted 361-64 in favor and also approved by 279-147 an unrelated measure allowing people to carry guns into national parks.

The Senate passed the credit card bill, along with the unrelated gun measure, by a 90-5 vote on Tuesday.

President Obama will sign the bill on Friday, a White House spokeswoman told CNN.
