WHAT WONDERFUL IRONY! Some old Confederate money is now worth thousands of dollars per bill while a current $1 U.S. bill won’t buy you diddly. “Save your Confederate money, boys, the South’s gonna rise again.” (Well, who knows? Everything else is crumbling.)

WHO CARES IF Obamacare is a tax or a penalty, since it’s obviously BOTH! And it’s also obviously UNconstitutional, no matter what our enemies on the Supreme Court have the blatant and flagrant audacity to claim.

OBAMA IS TRYING TO sneak a bill through Congress that will use the power of treaties with foreign governments to effectively kill Americans’ freedom to bear arms as stated in the Constitution’s 2nd Amendment.

CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN why the North Augusta Walmart does not water the plants and hanging baskets? They leave them until they are very wilted, throw them in a box and get the forklift to haul the box to their Dumpster.

THE ONLY WAY TO improve our inner-city community is to get rid of the bad elements. They have become the role models. Build more jails if you need to, but don’t keep releasing habitual violators back into the community.

THE NEXT TIME YOU happen to shake hands with a career politician, e.g., a U.S. senator or representative, consider that it’s like shaking hands with Al Capone, except that in comparison, Capone was a pussycat.

GOSH, DELTA FLIGHTS from Augusta have increased $300 to $900. Sadly Atlanta is much cheaper. I won’t be flying from Augusta any more.

IT SEEMS I CANNOT open my mail without there being yet another letter from my bank with a page of legalese telling me they have once again changed the terms of “our” agreement. Although the letter always closes telling me how much they appreciate me, not once has the change benefitted me.

I SAW THIS LINE on the back window of a pickup truck and it is stuck in my head. I hope it never goes away: I HOPE ONE DAY TO BE AS GOOD A PERSON AS MY DOG THINKS I AM.

RANT TO THE Columbia County code enforcer. I’d like to know how many other times have you walked in someone’s house and didn’t get caught.

I've got a Confederate 20

I've got a Confederate 20 dollar bill that I'm proud of. I stuck it in the picture I have of General Lee leading his army across the Potomac. Hey, SeenIt and CG. Nice reporting of the crane getting the bass. I watch the same thing out my back window. Beautiful.

New ALDI Store

The new ALDI discount store is coming to Columbia County without the county giving them any kind of tax break. Contrast that with Richmond County and Costco.

I don't know why he would be. If they would have had that duel, we would have had one less MSNBC idiot.

Good Morning CG & River, you boys are already shaking those tail feathers.

CG, please tell Sarge, I'm thinking of him and hope he is feeling much better. Does he have a way to get his email?

Zell Miller

...Never voted for the man, but his work on getting the HOPE program through the legislature earned respect from both sides of the political spectrum. Too bad he had to water down the safeguards to keep the system solvent (i.e.; keeping the thieving politicians from it). I wish him well.

Confederate money?

I'd say REAL money; there's an old saw about how at the turn of the century (my century, not this newfangled thing) a 20-dollar gold piece could buy the best room in town, the best meal in town along with the comforts of the best bottle of champagne and, um, companionship for the evening. And it still can.

Paper money from that era, not so much.

Penn St. Penalty Prediction

I just heard on the radio that the NCAA will announce penalities against Penn St. tomorrow. I am going to make a prediction I haven't heard anyone else come up with. The penalty will be mainly donation of all profits from football for a while to victims of child abuse. The guilty ones for the most part are dead, in jail or awaiting trial. This seems fair to me. It doesn't punish the school and those not involved.

Penn State

...RM1, I hope you're right. I doubt it, because hysteria usually prevails; this is a case of what I've termed "Blazing Saddles Syndrome;" a bunch of underworkd and overpaid apparatchiks sit around in a boardroom somewhere and the leader says in effect, "We gotta protect our phoney-baloney jobs!" The NCAA has not yet demonstrated any discernable difference in handling this tragedy.

North Augusta WalMart Watering....
Unpublished

Maybe, while whomever is at it explaining the theory to you Ranter, they can ALSO offer a plausible explanation of WHY Highway 25, all along the corridor of the WalMart you refer tois watered about 2 or 3 times per week. Obviously, macadam highway has NO greenery!

Good Afternoon

The Emperor will use any means necessary to keep us from owing firearms. And we all know laws work. We never read about a convicted felon using a gun in his next crime.

OK Friends

I think it is time to call the number...706 651-5516.
Sarge has been bounced around rooms and hard to keep up with him.
At this time he is in an Emotional Down Slide due to the fact he may end up an nursing home. Most of the Rehabs are not taking Medicare and he is afraid he will have to loose everything he has if he goes to a home.
He was real sick for two days because of low blood count, got a few bags of blood and is doing ok at this time.
He keeps mentioning you all and sure would do him good to hear your support.

Shaking hands with a politician

If you shake hands with a politician you better have a bottle of anti-bacterial lotion in your pocket or purse!

Hey SeenitB4 I saw a bumper sticker yesterday that said "Horn Broken, Watch for Finger!"
Ain't that a hoot!

I know certain people love to

I know certain people love to go out of their way to make Columbia County seem so much better than Richmond County...

Columbia county gave tax breaks to both the Zaxbys on Columbia rd and Bojangles on South Belair rd in Martinez...

There's over thirty ALDI stores in the state of Georgia alone... Only ten Costco locations exist in Georgia, and nine of the warehouses are centered around metro Atlanta..

The AlDI is close to $1.5 million, and the Costco is an $17-$22 million impact... One store will attract the general local population, and the other retailer will draw people from outside of the CSRA..

As far as safety and quality of life, Columbia County far surpasses Richmond County on all levels. Has NOTHING to do with what you are building. Where people work and where they choose to live are two completely different things.
