Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

POLYGAMY IS THE root problem of Muslims. There are too many men who are deprived of a wife and family; a recipe for violence, and too many children share one father to be raised properly. Osama bin Laden had 53 brothers and sisters.

A RANT AGAINST WJBF, our ABC affiliate, for not airing Ka­tie Couric’s new show. What is wrong with you people?

KUDOS TO CHRIS GAY for his article. I don’t live in Augusta, but I had a grandchild who graduated from MCG, and that is what they want on their certificate.

CHICK-FIL-A, PLEASE hurry and open your business on Highway 25.

FOR THOSE SO-CALLED upscale neighborhoods in Evans: First, you denied a veteran a place to build to have a home while he recuperated and tried to get his strength and dignity back. Now you’re complaining about a pink doll house. People in Bev­er­ly Hills have polka-dot­ted doll houses, brick doll ­houses, cardboard doll houses. Come on now, let’s get real. Evans, you’re not all that.

A RANT FOR ALL THE people who don’t care about us who live in the projects. I live in Dogwood Terrace and I find it deplorable that we have to live with water that smells like sulfur. When we wash our clothes, it smells like sulfur. God forbid we drink the water, and some of us are because we don’t know. And we’re giving it to our kids. It doesn’t matter who I call. We are stuck here, but it doesn’t matter because we don’t count.

RAVES TO ALMA, the director of Harlem Senior Center. She is a very nice, wonderful and kind person. She serves us seniors very well. May God bless her.

RANT FOR THE PERSON who stole the little old lady’s purse while she was visiting in the graveyard on Meadowbrook Drive and who ran away like a coward. I hope you sleep well at night.

I HOPE THAT THOSE of you who are irritated by the hassle of renewing your driver’s license after years of driving in the state of Georgia realize that this is a precursor to suppressing the vote by making it more difficult to obtain the needed photo ID.

THE LITTLE GIRL LOVES pink. So do I. I don’t see why that little playhouse is going to make a difference in any neighborhood. I think it is snobbery.

" ...too many children share one father

to be raised properly." And what about the Christian USA, where we pay so the children will have NO father? How's that working out?

I expect they do, troubled only by anger there wasn't more in it.

Yeah, that must be it: It's highly selective; only minorities are required to produce all the proper documentation. Weed 'em out.

Please...

My take...

#1.The root problem of Muslims is not polygamy...it's fundamentalists preaching "kill the infidels"...

#2.Why isn't WJBF broadcasting Katie Couric's show?..Two words...
Katie Couric...

#3.Augusta University all the way!!!

#4.They're everywhere.... Just drive a little farther in the meantime....

#5.If there is a covenant in place and you don't abide by it, sorry.....You knew what you're getting into when you moved there...

#6.Nobody cares about you?..You're getting a FREE ( or mostly free) place to live.....last time I was at the beach ALL the water that came out of the faucets smelled like sulfur....deal with it......

#7.Kudos to you Miss Alma..

#8.Sadly the creep probably does sleep well at night. In a subsidized apartment is my guess...

#9.Cry me a river.....You need an I.D. to vote in Venezuela, a country you lefties LOVE. But not here? ...hypocrites...

#10.See number 5.

Ranter, and you have to live

Ranter, and you have to live in the projects because? We have had a lot of friends and a lot of clients whose grand parents, great grandparents and great, great grandparents were slaves. Most of those families were sending their children to college before I went to college. With the opportunities available, ranter, get yourself out of the project and stop expecting others to provide for you.

As I recall reading, the

As I recall reading, the owner of the pink playhouse DID ask at a meeting to paint the playhouse pink and there was neither an objection nor an approval. Nothing was said until AFTER the deed was done. IMO, covenant or not, its a PLAYHOUSE for a KID. What if she had bought one molded in pre-colored plastic? Would there be an argument over this too? Im soo glad I now live in an area where HOAs arent needed because neighbors accept their neighbors and respect each others rights to choose what to do with their property. I will NEVER live someplace where I have to pay dues to be told what to do with my property....thats just insane.

It is good to be here. Ate at Villa Europa tonight with my daughter and friends and had a wonderful dinner. And, no, they do not plan on shutting down until they have secured another location. The lady there reminded me about Pizza Villa which was located on Wrightsboro at the end of the runway at Daniel Field. This would have been 1968. The people there eventually relocated to start Villa Europa. Pizza Villa was one of the first custom pizza joints to open up and they were really good.

Reminder for those that plan to have breakfast with Sarge and others at the Cracker Barrel in Evans on Oct 3 at 9am, we are still on.

fftaz, it depends on what

fftaz, it depends on what the covenants say. You don't ride through Woodside seeing any playsets from the street.
I guess she could put up a privacy fence around it so is not visible.

Give us Katie Couric!

It's much better than the Jerry Springer, Maury Povich, Steve ba...us, whatever his mane is. Plus all the court shows.
At least Katie would be wholesome.

Here's an idea for you, stop having babies, get a job and work your way out instead of saying "we are stuck". I apologize if that sounds hard but sometimes we need to hear the hard words. Believe me I have heard them more than once in my life.

The Future of Newspapers

The Times-Picayune in New Orleans has cut back their hard copy newspaper to three days a week due to losses. In June they had laid off a third of their employees.

I believe this is the future of newspapers. They won't be wrapping fish in old newspapers in the future. Possibly TV news too is going to be hit with this technological revolution to as 6 PM news loses its power when you can find news anytime you want in a venue that's becoming more and more appealing.

It’s all moving to interactive internet delivery vehicles. The trick for papers is to use their name and prestige to create the best internet news site early before something out of left field beats them to it.

I'm reminded of a line by Jack Kerouac when he was in New Orleans...."Like old newspapers blowing down Canal Street."

Katie Couric and Sarah Palin

After liberal Katie Couric’s famous hatchet job interview of Sarah Palin, I wish Palin would yank her hair, slap her and rub some baby seal fat on her face from a seal she had personally bludgeoned to death and skinned.

A Secret Handshake?

I’m trying to figure out the dynamics of Richard Roundtree and his newly found supporters after he won the run-off. In Sylvia’s column it was said Mr. Roundtree made some polarizing remarks that “THEY” needed to take over every office. Do the white supporters get a special pass they can use exempting them? Certain clothing or jewelry to identify you? Maybe a secret handshake?

Bacon Lovers

For all you, “I love bacon” fans, “COOS BAY, Ore. — An Oregon man was eaten by his 700-pound hogs when he was trying to feed them Thursday.

Terry Garner, 69, who lived near the rural town of Riverton in southern Oregon, went to feed his animals on his farm.

According to the FOX 12 report, a family member looking for Garner after he had been missing for several hours found his dentures on the ground in front of the hog enclosure.”

Good Morning day 35 America, Friends and TSDs

I see many stayed up late and brought in the new R&R's.

I said before that I never get into a religious debate....Added one more..Never debate doing only the speed limit in the Left lane. That lane is the MY Way or No Way.

Jake, can't wait to see what people do with "Grits".

How can a pink doll house get so be so Offensive? Has it killed, robbed, raped, made you lose you job, said nasty things to you, made you go blind looking at it......Damn, just forget it and go on with your life.

About Sulphur Water

I've read a little bit about it, but maybe someone who knows more will comment. From what I read, it often comes from bacteria in the private lines going to the house.

The reason for our school failure

Some so called wise guys THINK we can bring every child up to the same level....it ain't gonna happen...but they insist...soooo many are held behind the curve when they could soar above the clouds.....& so sick of one size fits all....
When I read about the Clayton county schools I just want to scream....many kids will drop out.......& won't get to college because of some IDIOTS wanting to be big boss hog.....crazy situation..& if they lose accreditation again ....the Gov. needs to kick them all out!
