Rants & Raves

Comments from our readers:

HOW DID SHAQUAN DULEY come to the conclusion that by getting rid of two of her children it would solve all of her problems? Murdering her two little boys is a shocking outcome of her morbid thinking. One thing is certain is that the boys are now in a better place.

WHY IS BRADLEY MANNING, the Army private, being hailed as a hero because he leaked classified information regarding Afghan reports? He has now put some of our troops and Afghan personnel in immediate danger because names have been published in the leaked material. Think of what he has done before calling him a hero.

THIS IS A RAVE for one of our Richmond County employees. Ms. Joan Shakleford in the Jury Clerk's Office is a most pleasant person to deal with. My daughter got a jury summons but she is off at school so Ms. Joan took her address and said that everything was handled. She also took the time to visit with my other daughter and me all the way to the elevator. Hats off to Ms. Shakelford!

PEOPLE NEED TO LEARN to separate religion from terrorism. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the U.S. Constitution doesn't allow discrimination based on religion.

IT'S ANOTHER SAD element to the crazy world today that a man is saluted as a hero who would curse away in a plane full of people, deploy an emergency chute that could have caused harm or death, steal a beer or more and then quit the job by riding the chute down. Anyone who quits in that irresponsible and dangerous way, along with stealing an item or more in the process, is someone I would never approve for employ anywhere except to scoop poop up or to handle trash.

HEADLINE: "MCG could get a name change." Hmmm. That's what progressive orgs do when they're in trouble, so they can resurface with no difference but their name. Something about this MCG stuff seems super political and has nothing to do with medicine, teaching or healing anybody.

ABOUT THE RECENT Cherry Tree death: Where's the outrage? Have we forgotten when the police shot a known felon who tried to run them over? Residents were very upset, and even set up a shrine. Oh, wait ... it's only a big deal when the police shoot/murder someone. Civilian killing civilian is just an unfortunate tragedy.

SMOKERS HAVE THE RIGHT to their health-degrading and horribly smelling habit. I understand that. What I don't understand is why smokers insist on standing just outside the door of fast food restaurants. Particularly the employees of the restaurants. When I'm on my lunch break that's the last thing I want to smell when I'm hungry.

THIS IS TO the people who are in charge of roads and bridges in Grovetown. If you're wondering why there are so many potholes on Chamblin Road, it's those huge double front cement trucks that use the road as a short cut. There is a sign on one end of that road that says no through trucks, but it's missing on the other side near the interstate bridge. I see it happening everyday.

Speaking of flies, the trap

Speaking of flies, the trap is still working very well. It has now gone from "ant farm" status to "biology project" status. We've even got some live newborn maggots in there that I can watch live and not on my computer monitor.

I'm still trying to figure

I'm still trying to figure out who the extra 13% are:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 25% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-four percent (44%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -19.

Cherokee county Ga. students tests above NATIONAL average.
On a scale of 1 to 36, Cherokee students' average ACT score was 22.2. The national average was 21 & the state average was 20.7.
Now who sez Ga. kids aren't smart!

Well making $30-75/hr is some

Well making $30-75/hr is some incentive to stay on a computer "all day". I hope you spend your new found $5 wisely.

The woman who killed her two

The woman who killed her two small children did it because she was mad at her mother. It has nothing to do with wanting them, abortion, birth control, or anything like that. It was shocking, horrible, and a sobering reminder that evil truly exists in this world.

"We've even got some live newborn maggots in there that I can watch live and not on my computer monitor."

Thank you, sweet Jesus, that my life has never even remotely approached the point where I would spend one minute of it watching maggots on a computer monitor.

If she was only mad at her

If she was only mad at her momma, why didn't she kill momma? Momma may have turned the tables. Be careful how you raise children or animals and be very careful that you can tell which is the animal. "As you sow, so shall you reap".

usafvet - she most likely

usafvet - she most likely didn't kill Momma, because the most excruciating thing she could do to Momma was to kill the grandbabies that she was accused of not properly taking care of. It is likely that she knew that Momma would rather die herself than have her grandbabies hurt or killed.

Afternoon all! Slow news day

Afternoon all! Slow news day again, but maybe we will get some rain. Until then the boys are frolicking in the back yard, the wife is mowing the the front yard, the nephew is working on the new walkway out front, and I am settled back in my big recliner, watching the Braves game. All is right with the world! Bbl...gotta fetch my own beer...dang!
