Rants and raves

  • Follow Metro

HOW CAN OBAMA be hurting your wallets if you claim he hasn't done anything since he's been president? Make up your mind and quit making up reasons to hate him. This is getting really annoying.

RANT TO THE POOR soul that attacks Fox News for consistently revealing what Obama and his organization have in mind for this great nation. Obama and his minions have one major goal in mind and that is ensure that our Constitution is bypassed and that their government is in full control in every aspect.

DO THE LIBERALS whining about Fox News want us to believe that CNN is not biased?

IF THE DEMOCRATS are going to fix health care the same way they fixed oil prices, we are in deep trouble. Remember, oil was selling at $26 a barrel when the Democrats took control of Congress in January 2007.

HEADLINE: "OBAMA warns more will lose jobs amid recovery." "Recovery" means gain, not loss. It doesn't mean people lose jobs; it means people get jobs. Obama keeps using words to mean their opposites.

THE NEWS SAYS that to outfit one American soldier in Afghanistan costs taxpayers about a half million dollars. There's no way that can make any sense. Who does that accounting? One of Obama's Chicago goons?

I SEE THAT WOODY MERRY is ranting and raving again, and he leaves out the fact that he seemed to have fleeced many people out of a lot of money years ago in order to bring Continental Airlines here. Then they left a year later.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE Woody Merry. Keep it up, my brother.

TO THE GUY that ranted about nobody buying tickets to the Lynyrd Skynyrd concert: Most people aren't buying them because they are $55. I can't afford that, and most of us can't. Tickets are higher at the James Brown Arena than they are anywhere.

THIS IS A RANT for Richmond County. I think it should be mandatory to recycle regardless of whether people want to save the Earth or not. Even if recycling isn't mandatory, we only need garbage pickup every two weeks or every month because there's no way to fill up the cans that much.

To the first ranter. What

To the first ranter. What most of us who abhor, and disagree with, Obama's policies have been/are/will keep saying is that he has done nothing POSITIVE for our nation. His ill-conceived strategies have had a tangible negative effect in many areas such as the increase in deficit spending, apologizing to our enemies while shunning our traditional allies, indecision on time-sensiive troop support during a hot war, intensifying the partisan divide on Capitol Hill by excluding the opposition party from discussions on pending legislation, a failure to keep the promise of transparency, failure to make any effort towards this concept of unity that Candidate Obama kept preaching, etc etc. The litany of failures and lies have been well chronicled on these boards and in the press in general. Despite 100's of requests, I've yet to see any of his loyal supporters come up with ANY actual positive accomplishments other than winning the election. Enjoy the nice weather today!

How is that 1941? Take off

How is that 1941? Take off your rose colored glasses, stop singing Kum bay Yah and tell us the positives! Come on now, Suck it up and tell some truths, not lies, not propaganda. How many jobs have been created, outside government, (NOT SAVED) when unemployment keeps rising? How many more homes are being foreclosed? How many more bankruptcies are being filed? How many people are looking at paying double what they pay now for healthcare due to Obamacare?

Don't know who said it cost

Don't know who said it cost the taxpayer half million dollars to equip every soldier in Afghanistan. Maybe it was the nonpartisan CBO because they're big on such numbers. But it sounds about right. Wonder how many rounds of ammunition they're squeezing off for every bad guy killed. Two or three million?

ok, for those of you that are

ok, for those of you that are totally clueless, here is the definition of a "true (direct) democracy" Direct democracy, classically termed pure democracy,[1] comprises a form of democracy and theory of civics wherein sovereignty is lodged in the assembly of all citizens who choose to participate. Depending on the particular system, this assembly might pass executive motions, make laws, elect and dismiss officials, and conduct trials.
Direct democracy stands in contrast to representative democracy, where sovereignty is exercised by a subset of the people, usually on the basis of election. Deliberative democracy incorporates elements of both direct democracy and representative democracy.[2]

I agree with SayNoMore - we're upset because he's not done anything positive. He's hurting our wallets with all his negative actions. If you can't see that now, you will most definitely through the next generation.
