Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

MORE AMERICAN SERVICEMEN killed by our “allies.” Lyndon Baines Obama keeps wasting our troops and treasure in that rat hole. Bring the troops home, no more aid, enforce our borders. America First!

SINCE THE COURTS won’t permit the execution of drunk drivers who kill, the next-best sentence is for them to stay in jail as long as their victims remain dead.

PRESIDENT OBAMA DID NOT have time to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu but he had plenty of time to meet with Dave Letterman. What a lot of baloney! Now is not the time to ignore our Israeli friends.

PLEASE CONTINUE WITH the business profiles that you show each Monday on the back page of the Metro section. These are very informative and expose us to businesses that we would not normally know about.

DON’T YOU JUST love those peaceful, radical Muslims?

PEOPLE ARE BAD enough drivers without Mercedes putting small-screen computers in cars. Has the world gone crazy? The car companies need to get a grip.

ALL THESE YEARS and all that money; why is the Augusta Corporate Park still empty and unused? Did we really need it? Who made money off that white elephant?

I HAVE STOPPED shopping where employees have rings in their noses, flat washers and bolts in their ears, and screws in their eyebrows. It’s not sanitary. Were you listening, store owners?

THE LIBYANS MESSED with Reagan and he lobbed some missiles their way. Bush whooped up on Saddam. Obama apologizes. It ain’t right! Do we really need four more years of this?

IF SCOTT PEEBLES was a black man, he definitely would be our next sheriff. It’s a total disgrace to our city that race plays a role instead of who is really qualified for the position.

EVERY LITTLE GIRL deserves a pink playhouse! Now we have Scrooges who don’t want them to enjoy childhood. Just stop!

THE CHRONICLE CITED a report that President Obama only attends his intelligence briefing about 40 percent of the time. Does that outrage anyone besides me? The No. 1 responsibility of the federal government is the protection of our country and the safety of its citizens.

"Obama only attends his intelligence briefing

... about 40 percent of the time. "

There is an upside: Not knowing what our enemies are doing against us does cut down on the number of apologies he feels he has to make. More time for Letterman and golf!

"EVERY LITTLE GIRL

... deserves a pink playhouse!" Please don't say that! At some point one of the local entitlement czars will agree and next year's property tax bill will have a PPET --Pink Playhouse Entitlement Tax-- surcharge.

(None of monies collected will actually ever build one. Okay, maybe one, but it'll be in Evans)

The writer of this is obviously misinformed, the chief purpose of the federal government is to supply free "Obama phones" in Ohio at a cost of $ 25 million ( double last year)to the citizens of Ohio for their vote. Of course the cell phones are paid for by the helots of America!

Pink Playhouse

Yes, every girl does deserve one!

I did not get one, what about me? What about families that have two or three girls? Do they have two or three pink playhouses out back..you know one for each girl?

Where does it stop? I mean, what does each little boy deserve?

the great thing about those

the great thing about those free government phones is that the program that funds them (through a little fee on everybody's phone bill) was started in 1985. you know, obama was totally in office then

and a "thumbs down" for the

and guess who's part of the 47% and doesn't pay taxes according to romney.

i'm going to go ahead and start hyphenating everything i own based under the administration it was aquired under, because well, you know, we never did anything by ourselves or something. i heard boortz say it so it must be true. although i gotta admit i didnt catch all of it.

38 Days

You may have only 38 days to survive the onslaught you have suffered daily in almost 4 years. There is blood dripping from your Stars and Stripes, you have been torn, urinated on, burned and have received no respect from so many around the world and even from those that have Pledge an Allegiance to you within your flying borders.

A Hammer & Sickle rug is being lowered over your once proud face as you lay in ICU fighting for your every breath to survive.

You represent the Americans who have died for you since birth, you provide the hope and freedom of those that still love and respect you, May God give you the strength to survive the worst affected disease that you have ever had to endure.

GOOD MORNING AMERICA

"the great thing about those

"the great thing about those free government phones is that the program that funds them (through a little fee on everybody's phone bill) was started in 1985. you know, obama was totally in office then"

And THAT program covered ONLY landline telephones. Since Obama has been in office the CELL phone program has exploded and is full of fraud and abuse. Could that be because of Obama's appointees to the Federal Communications Commission which oversees the Universal Service Fund which we PAYING customers are forced to fund? This program is like all other welfare programs the government runs by handing out benefits without supervision or management. It is COMMON now to find recipients with more than one phone, selling their "free" phones, and getting a new phone every month. And even though I cannot afford smartphones, we GIVE them to people under the auspices of a "lifeline" program that was orginally intended to give people a landline phone capable of calling 911. Again, a well intentioned entitlement program gone absolutely CRAZY. It is a NANNY STATE program at it's WORST. There is absolutley no legitimate reason for the government to be providing ANY cell phones, much less smartphones. It is a CLASSIC socialist wealth redistribution program and the money they are redistributing is from the middle class people who pay their phone bills. The implementation of the Universal Service Fund SHOULD have been the trigger for the first blood in the streets riot in this country.

Yep, I agree with you

Yep, I agree with you dichotomy. I'm just saying that all this acting like President Obama was the harbinger of all this government largesse is kinda silly.

Cash for Clunkers pretty silly.
First time home buyers incentive. Really silly.

Bailing out banks, remarkably silly when you look at what Iceland did. And how their economy is doing.

As far as the "catfish" out there with two government phones and folding money, there are always going to be those who take advantage of the system.

I'm sure all those for-profit schools are treating scholarship and student loan money with the utmost respect.

A nanny state at its worst doesn't give you free things.

A nanny state at its worst busts a boot through your front door without cause or a warrant. Which, thanks to judges throughout the country, we now have a legal precident for it.

A nanny state at its worst tells you that you are no longer allowed to peacibly assemble, for a litany of "security reasons"

A nanny state at its worst writes checks it can't pay.

the free phone "scandal" is towards the bottom of a very long list of things which are not quite right with this country/nationstate

Race

"IF SCOTT PEEBLES was a black man, he definitely would be our next sheriff. It’s a total disgrace to our city that race plays a role instead of who is really qualified for the position."

Interesting...Should the corollary begin if Richard Roundtree were a white man...? What if Freddie Sanders were of mixed race? 1/8 Indian and 1/4 Irish Traveler?

omnomnom....."the free phone "scandal" is towards the bottom of a very long list of things which are not quite right with this country/nationstate"

I will agree with you on that. The problem with the free phone scandal is that it is the epitome of a program that demonstrates "entitlement gone wild" unneeded and undeserved government programs and that the MIDDLE CLASS, not the rich, PAY FOR THESE UNEARNED ENTITLEMENT PROGRAMS. Just as the MIDDLE CLASS will PAY for OBAMACARE.

And this "program" was imposed on US by unelected, unresponsive, unaccountable government bureaucrats who impose this fee on us and raise it at a whim when the fraud and abuse drives the costs higher while they DO NOTHING to control or manage the program.

Rant #10...

...you nailed it!!...Until we really start to view people by the "content of their character" vs the color of their skin, Richmond Co. will continue to get what they deserve...

And sadly cases such as this prove there is more racism within the black power structure than in the county as a whole.....For them it's ALL about the color of the skin.....not the content of the character of the candidate....

It's common knowledge to those of us who keep up with local politics that the black power players have said many times publicly and privately that their goal is to have a black person in every elected office in Richmond Co.

While I have no problem with this if the candidates are indeed the best person for the job, it's sad that they would ignore in some cases an obviously better candidate just for the sake of having a black person in the seat..

Until this is changed Richmond Co will continue to be a political three-ring circus to be laughed at by the rest of the state...
