Rants and Raves

Comments from readers:

RAVES FOR OUR President and his perseverance on the health care legislation which brings us nearer to realizing our ideal of “one nation under god.”

I WANT TO THANK the man who saved my grandson by pulling him out of the window when our house was burning. Thanks again and God be with you.

FUNNY HOW RACISM is defined these days. A black person can admit that he voted for Obama only because of race, and that’s OK. But, if a white person admitted to voting against Obama because of race, he would be branded as racist. Also, a young black man is shot and thousands march and protest before the facts of the case are even known. But, let a black man shoot a policeman, and these same marchers are silent. There are two types of racism today: acceptable and unacceptable.

RANT TO THE NEW management team of The Patch. Even after a month, trees felled by the storm have not been removed.

They said ‘no’ to having long-running charity tournaments at the course that generated guaranteed revenue. They ran off regular paying customers. And now they want us – taxpayers – to give them $300,000 for improvements. What’s up with that? And did they think anything through?

I AGREE ABOUT the Southside Mafia needing to make a comeback. I had high hopes for my commissioner out here in Goshen but have also been disappointed. He seems to just go along with whatever Joe Bowles tells him to do.

THE NEW GEORGIA law raising taxes by taxing Internet purchases was a recommendation from a group called the “Special Council (so official sounding) on Tax Reform and Fairness for Georgians.” Anything put forward that’s called “fairness,” “affordable,” etc., is always the opposite of what the name implies. This is standard procedure from big government, Big Brother politicians. The supposed “conservatives” who support such Marxism are working for the left, even if they’re too egotistically stupid to realize it.

PEOPLE, PLEASE keep your children in your yard. Not everyone likes the creatures, especially their smell and all the other nasty things they do. Plus all their bad habits ... wonder where they picked those up from, not the cat!

"For the last ranter * keep

"For the last ranter * keep your children in your yard* what are you talking about, pets? in that case, I never think of my new dog as a *child, or pets, if so please elaborate. Thank you."

The ranter was talking about children and was spoofing a previous rant about cats (I think it was cats, anyway). I imagine they were specifically talking about the children who are allowed to wander around without supervision, playing with and/or destroying whatever they come across.

David Parker,i will stop protesting when a hussein worshipper tells us he/she has read and understood the obamacare law. AND tells us what is in it,ALL of it. So much for transparency! Didn't hussein promise to put EVERY bill on cspan to be examimed before passage? ANOTHER LIE!

Practicing "selective racism"

Practicing "selective racism" seems to be growing in popularity here.

It's OK to criticize Bush because that's your right as an American citizen. But, don't you dare criticize Obama. If you say anything negative about this president (forget about the facts), then you are a racist.

Free medical care. until you

Free medical care. until you go to the emergency room and find out that you aren't covered. Then find out you have to pay $700 to be covered. Its in the Emperors health care bill. Try reading it folks... or is it the poor Obama supporters can't read?

"There are at least 8 subjects to rant and rave about but all you racist hypocrites as usual can't get around bashing our president. Get a life! for that matter, get a JOB!"

I worked for 40+ years and just retired, thank you very much. During that time I lived within my means and saved/invested enough money to supplement my pension for a decent lifestyle in my coming old age. "OUR PRESIDENT" has embarked on a spending spree, expansion of government, and an expansion of dependents on that government to the degree that what I worked for all of those years is in danger of being eaten up by inflation and $ devaluation; yet I am racist for criticizing him??? PUH-LEEZE!!!!!!! And that doesn't even touch on his foreign policy snafus.

"Can any of you Racist, hating posters of my President give me One thing he has Done, Action or spoken that has been bad since he was elected...Remember, please state FACTS?"

Maybe copperhead would like
Unpublished

Maybe copperhead would like to answer the following questions. Don't we have a national health care system called - Medicare? Aren't people required to pay into Medicare? How many people on Medicare would rather drop it and pay for an individual insurance policy? Is there a law that requires insurance companys have to listen to doctors when doctors specify what treatment or medicine is needed? Will an insurance company cover the cost of any doctor I choose to visit? Will an insurance company allow unlimited visits to my doctor for complaints I may have? When my doctor recommends I have a CAT scan, EKG, MRI etc. do I have to ask the insurance company first or can I just schedule one at the place of my choosing?

Actually, liberals display

Actually, liberals display hatred and racism against anyone that disagrees with their sacred positions. But, let a conservative even suggest they might be in error, and hell hath no fury like a "tolerant" liberal's hatred for a conservative.

Rant #5. Yes I realize
Unpublished

Rant #5. Yes I realize Guilfoyle has been a disappointed and seems to vote the way The Cabal instructs him, but returning to the old days of the Southside Mafia stranglehold is not the way to go. What South Augusta needs is more independent minded commissioners. But like I have always said, look who has been donating the heaviest to a particular candidate if you want to know who will controlling them once they are in office. Look where most of Guilfoyle's contributions came from.. west Augusta and from The Cabal, so is it really any surprise that he is representing their interests instead of South Augusta?

I'll make it easier for the hussein worshippers. List just 10 points in obamacare and explain them. Out of 2700 pages,surely y'all can find 10 points to explain to us and why you love them so much.
