Rants & raves

For the most part, most of the (Augusta Public Transit) drivers are great. The one or two who seem reluctant to tell me where a bus stop is or tell me the wrong times for the buses instead of admitting if they don't know are the ones that irritate me. Also, if APT could make sure to post in larger writing about any change in schedule instead of in very small letters in front of the driver only at the front of the bus -- where some drivers seem irritated to then read the note out to us riders -- then that would be another big help.

OBAMA PRETENDS to support Israel, then makes a Passover speech that pretends Muslim maniacs are victims as were the Jews as slaves under the Pharoahs. Obama pretends Passover is about the standard Marxist excuses for trouble-making: "suffering, poverty, injustice and hunger." Passover is about God and his grace, period! Why would Obama neglect to mention the main thing, unless Obama has no belief in the main thing?

DONALD TRUMP BRAGS that he has "received many environmental awards." Since the environmental movement is just a cover for communism, to have received even one such reward tells us all we need to know about Trump and his egotistic, big government plans.

I THINK TO KEEP most all politicians honest, we must do away with any lifetime assignment of benefits and scale any benefits to the time truly served. And we should limit terms as well, like the two for the president.

A BIG RAVE TO the homeowner defending his car from the thief. A rant to the ignorant people who claim you cannot defend anything outside the home or that thieves cannot hurt you outside the home. You can never tell who might have what in hand to hurt you or threaten you with anytime, anywhere. And yes, a car is someone's property and, therefore, defensible. I have chased thieves from businesses to stop them at their vehicles. Because I'm a real big woman who can have fire in my eyes when I'm mad (or so I'm told), I have been able to stop two thieves that way to make them stay until the police came to officially arrest them.

IT WOULD BE INTERESTING to know how many more teenage pregnancies there are in our area with all these kids watching shows like Teen Mom , Pregnant at 16 and Jersey Shore , etc. Sure seems like a lot more of them are walking around our high schools. I say these shows need to be taken off the air!

I WOULD LIKE TO make a rant about the Augusta ministers doing their protest against the local government. I think they should stay out of politics and let our local government leaders lead it. It's not scripture.
