Rants & Raves

TIGER WOODS SHOULD be fined for his filthy language while playing in the Masters.

I WISH SOMEONE at Augusta National would address the lack of facilities for the physically challenged all the way from handicap parking to being able to access all the course.

TO THE PERSON ranting about the stench at the Peach Orchard Post Office, that stench is not coming from the post office trash bin;, it’s coming from the trash bin belonging to the restaurant in the adjacent parking lot.

THIS WAS OUR FIRST time at the Masters, and it was great! We must say, however, that we were very disappointed that the Par-3 concert was canceled at the last minute. We headed downtown from our hotel only to find out the concert had been canceled. By that time, the weather was lovely. It seems like whoever organized this event was not watching the weather very closely.

I AM SHOCKED at how many parents attended the R-rated movie American Reunion with their children. This is a very sexually filled movie, with a lot of adult content and jokes. What is wrong with our society?

RANT FOR THE rabid smoking ban proponents on The Chronicle’s editorial staff. You guys should be required to carry a copy of Walter Williams’ column from April 5. Nothing contained in the ban-smoking amendments should trump the constitutionally provided protection of a person’s private property rights.

WHEN IS ENOUGH enough? Tiger Woods can cuss, throw his clubs, now kick his clubs, and he’s supposed to be a model for our kids and the game of golf? After kicking his club in Friday’s round, is he worth too much money for the Augusta National not to punish his behavior? Maybe this should be part of the latest video game release.

WHY ARE PEOPLE running amok all over? Women shoot up around the Waffle House, and one even leaves a gun at Taco Bell. The other day at Augusta Mall, I saw two ladies yelling and screaming at a real lady. Then they got into some car that had kids in it and chased a city bus to yell and give the finger to the bus the lady was riding in. Both women were in the back seat with kids. I say the driver should be ashamed to have driven them and to do that in traffic with kids in the back seat.

Par 3 concert??? I was under the impression that it was a par 3 tournament, not some vocalist or band performing at the golf club.

Who cares about Tiger,

Who cares about Tiger, considering his performance this year. I will admit that if I was one of the worlds top players and had his tournament, I would probably say a few words some of you wouldn't like.

Good mourning Awguster, Trouble, seenit, cg, wb, rm, ch, and the rest of the alphabet.

If you wonder why I use mourning instead of morning, pay attention to the last rant.

Now hit me with your best shot for using facts.

Re: Tiger Woods' behavior:

Re: Tiger Woods' behavior: How about you be such a role model for your children that they recognize the inappropriateness of his behavior? Just a crazy idea of mine... that we should teach our own children right from wrong and how to recognize it.

Back to the Emperors forced health care. Remember Pelosi and "we have to pass it to see what's in it?" Justice Scalia... "you didn't read it and now expect us to examine it piece by piece, all 2700 pages".... or something real close to that.

Good Morning RK, Trouble and true American Friends, even my TSDs supporters.

Not one word about the King, Darn.

Rant 4, " What is wrong with our society?" Will Sir/Ma'am, Morality died out with common sense years ago with a cigar and hair on a coke can. It is the new world you live in with the onset of diversity pushed on us by our great King SMCICBHO.

Here is some interesting

Here is some interesting information. I was wondering why the IRS has given me 2 more days to file...

Tax Freedom Day Arrives on April 17

Tax Freedom Day is a vivid, calendar-based illustration of government's cost, and it gives Americans an easy way to gauge the overall tax burden. The model assumes that the American workforce begins working on January 1 and receives the same daily pay throughout the year. When the nation has finally earned enough to pay all the taxes that will be due for that year, Tax Freedom Day has arrived, says William McBride, an economist at the Tax Foundation.

Tax Freedom Day for 2012 will arrive later than most of the last 100 fiscal years, but is still not the latest on record.
•Tax Freedom Day for the 2012 tax year arrives on April 17, four days later than last year due to higher federal income and corporate tax collections.
•That means Americans will work 107 days into the year to earn enough money to pay this year's combined 29.2 percent federal, state and local tax bill.
•If the federal government raised taxes enough to close the budget deficit (an additional $1.014 trillion), Tax Freedom Day would come on May 14 instead of April 17.

These 107 days of tax burden can be broken down into their respective sources so that Americans can see the proportional contribution of each type of tax:
•Thirty-two days for the federal individual income tax.
•Eight days for state and local individual income taxes.
•Twenty-three days for federal social insurance taxes.
•Two days for federal sales and excise taxes.
•Twelve days for state sales and excise taxes.
•Twelve days for state and local property taxes.
•Nine days for the federal corporate income tax.
•One day for state and local corporate income taxes.
•Seven days for other taxes at both the state and federal level.

Tax Freedom Day varies substantially by state.
•Dates range from March 31 in Tennessee to May 5 in Connecticut.
•New Jersey and New York are the only other states that have Tax Freedom Days in May, both on May 1.
•Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and South Dakota all follow Tennessee closely, having days from April 1 to April 4.

- Tiger - He needs to grow

- Tiger - He needs to grow up
- Handicap access to the course - You need to grow up
- Barbaric behavior being carried out in malls, fast food outlets, showers, funerals, little league games - They need to grow up
- Television a standardsless cesspool - They need to grow up
- Major News networks cropping audio clips to purposely incite viewer anger - They need to be shut down

Common denominator: Self-absorbed, self-centered people who need to grow up..

"Why are people running amok all over?" Some folks didn't get much home-training. Of course, when so many residences don't contain their respective children's daddies, should we expect any better?

tiger woods MAY be getting a pass on his bad behavior because he is a member of the new black panthers. the new black panthers are allowed to put a bounty on people,intimidate voters,call for race riots,call for a "red sea" of caucasian blood,and call non-blacks "cracker" "honky". there used to be a law banning HATE speech-reckon it's ONLY meant for non-blacks.

In 1956, I signed a contract with the US Army, if I retired I would receive free medical care for Life. I am now paying over $100 a month for Medicare and look at the action that is happening to Tri-Care for life.
My next step will be the Death Panel!

"WHY ARE PEOPLE running amok all over?"

Low class and no class. Probably products of the government sponsored baby factories. Pump 'em out, run 'em by the tatoo shop, and turn 'em loose at the mall.

Careful now; the race baiters

Careful now; the race baiters will be along soon to call y'all racists for criticizing Woods' behavior. Bubba has been talked about on every major news network; asking panels if it is OK for men to cry, but not a peep about Mr. Tantrum. Maybe he and Spurrier should get together and do an instructional video on how NOT to be a good sport and role model . Throw in Nastase, McEnroe, and the Williams sisters from tennis just for good measure.

I was and am an ardent

I was and am an ardent supporter of Tiger but feel his abhorent behavior violates a basic tenent of golf - a gentleman's game. I feel he should not be allowed to play in the 2013 Masters. I feel Billy Payne should have removed him from the course after he kicked his club on 16, this following his screaming "GDit" at his drive on 13 - heard by millions of golf viewers around the world. Bobby Jones, a gentleman and epitome of respect for the game, once called a penalty on himself when no one else knew that his ball had moved before he struck it. Mr. Jones would be agast at Tiger's behavior. The entire field of invitees to the Augusta National is at the discretion of the members. It is time to put respect for the game above our admiration of the world's most famous golfer. Suspend Tiger from the 2013 Masters.
