THE WATERWORKS DEPARTMENT is stealing from us. My wife and I were out of town for two weeks. We live by ourselves in Knight Woods and our water bill went up $6.

LET ME GET THIS straight: You are against abortion but you don’t want birth control either? You just don’t want a woman to have a chance, do you?

SUNDAY ALCOHOL SALES will not stop “nip” houses in Richmond County. That’s where people go for just a drink (a nip). They don’t want or cannot afford a bottle. They drop in to get a drink of vodka or whiskey and are off. Some are underage and get a beer. The cops know where these nip houses are. There are several in Harrisburg.

I AM A REPUBLICAN and Obama hater and I so say what I mean, but the paper won’t print it. Now ain’t that something?

TO THE PERSON who thinks we should fix infrastructure to create jobs rather than allow the Keystone pipeline: Private industry pays for the pipeline. Guess who pays for the bill for infrastructure?

WHAT DO THE GRAMMY awards have to do with music? I think Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Ella Fitz­gerald would be rolling in their graves.

I AM SO SICK AND TIRED of the Republicans blaming Obama for all the sin in the world today. Man is to blame, not Obama, so you so-called Chris­tians don’t blame him. Pray for the wicked people.

I WISH PEOPLE IN this country would wake up and see where Obama is leading us. He is spending us into bankruptcy so the people won’t have any choice but to depend on what he says.

RAVES TO MR. ETHAN at the Regions Bank in Harlem, Ga. He is so nice and polite. When you walk in, it is a breath of fresh air. He is always kind and caring.

"WHAT DO THE GRAMMY awards

"WHAT DO THE GRAMMY awards have to do with music? I think Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Ella Fitz­gerald would be rolling in their graves."

I think Sinatra, Martin, and David would be too drunk/high to give a hoot. Fitzgerald too, possibly. Regardless, you have a point. The Grammy awards really mean nothing.

I love this Rant! What we need is a candidate who is anti-sex!
I am so sick of hearing Santorum talking about religion this and religion that. Obama's not really a Christian is what he wants to say soooo bad but he knows he can't so he had Franklin Graham say it for him. Obama is a Muslim because his father and grandfather were Muslim and so Obama is what the Quran calls the seed. Then Graham goes on to say that Romney's not a Christian because of all the "Weird Other stuff" that mormons believe. "Then there's Newt with all his marriages." That leaves us with holier than thou Santorum who is the only logical choice.
Horse chips!
I wan't a President who's going to lead the country not the morning prayer.

I AM SO SICK AND TIRED of the Republicans blaming Obama for all the sin in the world today. Man is to blame, not Obama, so you so-called Chris­tians don’t blame him. Pray for the wicked people. Well Obama told us he could fix the economy, keep unemployment below 8% by spending $800 billion dollars, and solve social issues from health care to cooling the earth. We hired him and now all we get are excuses and buck passing? If you hired a plumber to fix a leak and your house still has leaks do you blame the plumber you hired to fix the leak or do you blame George Bush, The tsunami, China, Greece, Iran, and how complex your plumbing system is, the congress, the Republicans , the courts etc, etc, etc?

Rant to the Water Co:

Rant to the Water Co: happens to me too. funny how it works, the less you use, the more it costs. Idk how they do it, ahem. But make no mistake, I am pro-h20.

Mr. Ethan Rave: You are the wind beneath my wings this morning.

HAH, morning ranters and lest we forget, ravers!!!

Susan McCord said last

Susan McCord said last night on her tweets that were posted here that Bowles Construction Company was Joe Bowles private company. I don't think that's accurate.

It is my understanding that

It is my understanding that Bowles Construction Company is owned by Joe Bowles’ brother, and that Joe Bowles has only recently been hired by the company to be an accountant or comptroller or something like that. Remember that by next January, Bowles will be a private citizen and no longer a city commissioner.

Yeah, and if you are Forest Hills golf course, you get unlimited water for just a couple hundred dollars a month. Go figure.

Harley, that's what I

Harley, that's what I thought, too, but Susan McCord presented it as HIS private company. The reason it's important is because of the company involvement with the Fire Dept problems in the past. Of course it was just a fast entry on Twitter that was printed here. Understandable error.
