Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE who does not enjoy being called with a prerecorded candidate’s stump speech to return the favor and call their headquarters to let them know this digital harassment is neither appreciated nor apt to influence your vote in their favor.

DEMOCRATS IN THE Senate continue to push division through class warfare with their passing of the bill to increase taxes for all Americans making over $250,000. Their past follies of attacking the so-called rich have only hurt middle and low income Americans.

THE CSRA ROAD ANGELS Car Club gets a big rave from me for starting back the First Friday car show at Hooters on Wash­ing­ton Road. I’m glad you are doing it again.

LET ME APOLOGIZE TO Wright McLeod. Even though it made me sick to my stomach, I had to vote Democrat to vote for Scott Pee­bles. But one must do what one must do.

WHEN I CALL a place of business and I am prompted to enter a phone number or leave a message, I should not have to wait a week for someone to return my call. This business of not talking to a real person and taking care of a problem up front needs to stop.

STOP ALL THE ELECTION talk and bashing. People will vote for who they want. To try to educate someone on a politician’s record or promises is wasting your time.

RAVES FOR ALL who pitched in to help find Bo the dog, who went missing after the Interstate 20 bridge accident over the Augusta Canal.

“HATE” IS THE NEW most overused and abused verbal weapon, supplanting “racist” for first place. If you disagree with a particular group’s agenda, you are a “hater,” and if that group happens to be of a different ethnicity, you are labeled a “hating racist.” Once bold and meaningful words like this lose their power from misuse.

HOORAY FOR THE gun shop owner who got all those burglars shot! That’s what they deserve for ramming his business.

RE: THE DISRESPECTFUL so-called mourners in flip-flops and shorts: Best behave and stay away from my funeral. A carefully chosen person will make a very short speech and send all mourners on the way to hopefully tiptoe through tulips, swing in a park and do other lively things for the living as I would like to do. No tears, no clapping as I would not hear or see any of it anyway.

Good am folks

This article says a lot...I hope all read it....

It’s three times more likely that a gun will be involved in an aggravated assault in Rich­mond County than the nation as a whole, according to the latest crime data from the FBI.

You can't sugar coat that news..

The very reason we can't get good people to run.....they bring up every tiny wrong you have ever done & blast it on tv & the news.....GEEZ
wow...if not for that we (meaning trouble & seenitB4) would run for mayor & sheriff in Richmond county....:)

Years ago

Years back the Sheriff dept. had stakeouts....they worked.....it stopped some crimes in their tracks.....now if the community would get together & stop fighting the law....let them do their JOB......Richmond county could be a better & safer place to live.....

So Countyman and I were,

So Countyman and I were, uh..discussing the population of Richmond County yesterday. The 2010 census says it's 60% nonwhite, but Countyman says that's only because I was counting the Hispanics as nonwhite. So finally I gave up and said, okay, I'll give you all the races combined for the white population except the blacks. We heard for years about waiting for the 2010 census and when it shows a black majority county, we now hear wait until 2020.

SeenIt, about that funny post

SeenIt, about that funny post you had about naming your dog Fluffy...I almost thought that LTE was a spoof. It was hilarious. The guy was saying names don't matter. The regents should control everything, etc.

Back to work

I see the so-called doctor at 10 this morning. If she doesn't clear me to work I may need ya'll to take up a collection for my bail. That or she is gonna have to start paying my bills. I am broke now. Had a little in savings but it's gone now. Which brings me to Trouble. I know I pick on her a lot but she is the one getting me through this mess, both financially and emotionally. Don't tell her 'cause she might believe it, but I love that gal.

@ Ranter # 5

We've had a lot of rain and wind lately and there is much new roof damage across the CSRA. Don't blame the roofing companies if they are busy. They'll get to you in your turn.

I thought I was the only one who had roof damage! I guess these storms really packed more of a punch than I thought.
