Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

A STORY MENTIONS Rep. Barrow “defending his eastern Georgia House seat.” Which seat is that? From Athens? From Savannah? Augusta? If he keeps moving to a new district, it’s a NEW seat he’s grabbing for, thus he’s defending zip. Does anybody know where Barrow really lives?

RANT TO HARLEY for calling Ashley the “Benchwarmer.” It’s derogatory to athletes. Ashley needs to start referring to Harley as the “Old Has-Been” and see how he likes it!

OBAMA’S LAST chant for his followers was “yes we can.” Well, he did and now we know he can’t because he doesn’t know how... Now his mantra is a “fairness policy.” Is it fair for women who want to have birth control pills to get them free (on us taxpayers) when other women who choose not to use them or women past birth age to not get them? It seems fair that those women should be compensated for not accepting free birth control. Sound stupid? What is stupid is the government controlling what is fair; as in the old Soviet block, current North Korea and Syria, other lands under dictators. Fair is the government staying out of my house and bedroom, not to mention my pocket!

THERE HAD NEVER BEEN a need for someone for sheriff as long as Strength was working. That man kept finding more and more ways to nab criminals even as his budget and staff were cut. If a woman was ready to take over, she would have come out to run for sheriff by now. Too bad we don’t have one ready just now and when Peebles wins, he’s going to last a good, long time because he’s smart.

CATS MAY NOT BE controllable but people can do a better job to keep them in yards or better yet, indoors. No need to populate the neighborhoods with yet other wild lives to suffer.

WHAT’S WRONG WITH people to want to forgive student debts? We are already giving away too dang much through welfare, way too extended unemployment monies, food stamp cards, and freebies right and left in food and clothing to people. Why on earth should students get to charge their “living” expenses (that includes utility bills, rent, and apparently any dang thing they want to “pay” for with the loan monies besides books, tuition and student fees) and then have it all dropped? That will only give even more lazy people motive to try to stay even longer in school to suck away at the monies, and then demand to have all those monies vanish. Don’t you see all those figures of people going five, even six years at school before they graduate?

Please, Strength ruined the moral on that department with his nepotism and crony advancements. They need somebody to run that place and teach them that not everybody in Richmond County is a criminal and should not be spoken to like they are.

I don't think Harley was

I don't think Harley was being derogatory to AB. Harley doesn't understand sports lingo. He usually gives AB lots of credit. They both make fun of Austin in sly ways...but who doesn't? Heh.

While the feds investigate

While the feds investigate Walmart for bribing Mexican officials so they could build stores, could we have them take a look at how that store to be built ended up on 15th St although the GHSU Foundation offered a half million more for the land?

I suggest Richmond County

I suggest Richmond County start to realize there are ways to discipline employees without firing them. There should be a middle ground where Tom Beck could have been reprimanded, suspended or demoted without firing him.

What is going ON with the theme about cats in the rants and raves lately? And when we go a day without someone mentioning cats, you better believe another person is going to be complaining that someone else's' kids have been in the wrong yard or something! Sheesh!

Good morning, SeenIt. I talk to myself, also. I begin to get worried when I start arguing with myself, though. And when I lose one of those arguments, I really get down in the dumps.

Good morning, Megin. Good to

Good morning, Megin. Good to hear from you again. Perhaps we get the cat rants this time of year because it's a prime time for feral cats to give birth. In my home I have three former feral cats ready for adoption. They have been fixed and have all their shots. Anybody (cat lover only) interested?

Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.- Ernest Hemingway, author and journalist, Nobel laureate (1899-1961)

Scenario: A Davidson senior

Scenario: A Davidson senior sells (or buys) a prescription drug illegally while in school in March (i.e., his final semester) and gets caught. The punishment is to be suspended from school for the rest of the semester or to finish out the rest of the semester at the Tubman alternative school. The student elects to continue schooling at Tubman and successfully completes his graduation requirements at Tubman.

Question: What school does his diploma have on it?

I seem to remember it is insurance companies covering birth control pills. As for tax money, I don't want my tax money paying for wars that kill our soldiers and innocent civilians. Where is the outrage over that?

Quick, without googling: How

Quick, without googling: How many of you know the name of Matthew Owens? Nothing newsworthy about him. As Obama wrote, "...a typical white person." He didn't make the national news cycle last Saturday (or since) when a mob of around twenty black thugs attacked him --on the front porch of his home-- battering him with pipes, bricks, chairs and even paint cans, leaving him still in the hospital in critical condition. No crime of interest to the media there as one black said, "Now, that's justice for Trayvon."

Good thing we have the watchdogs of the Fourth Estate making sure we aren't distracted by trivialities.

dstewartsr, it is a sad

dstewartsr, it is a sad commentary on how certain people view the world, beating every white person you see will somehow make them even for the martin thing, funny thing is that he was not killed by a white person, he was killed by a hispanic.......however, beating whites still solves the problem.....i will never understand that mentality, maybe it is because i am not a worshiper of the revs al and jessy or the "new" black panthers. (i know a thug when i see one)
