Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

IF YOU VOTE for Romney … he will win. But you must vote. Do not listen to the polls. Your vote counts! And while you are voting for Romney – vote for Anderson, and Sanders.

BIG RANT TO THE person or persons who speak for “we readers” against the editors of “our” newspaper. There is nothing illogical or slanted when editorials are backed up by facts. You want illogical: a survey of 60,000 households shows over 800,000 people found jobs, bringing unemployment below 8 percent? Really big families or bad math?

RANT ABOUT Mi Rancho’s downtown and its outdoor karaoke: I was trying to listen to an excellent performance by a local singer/songwriter (Kyle Smith) who was playing at The Cotton Patch. Unfortunately, he was nearly overpowered by the loud karaoke and lessor performances, about a block away. Be respectful and turn it down.

ROMNEY WAS RIGHT when he said he would cut funding to PBS. Now we find that Sesame Workshop President and CEO Gary Knell received $956,513 in compensation in 2008. Let’s vote for Mitt Romney to stop all of this nonsense.

ANOTHER STORY INCLUDING TERMS like “costly tax cuts” and “tax cut costs city millions.” Cutting taxes NEVER costs taxpayers anything; it merely gives less to politicians for them to waste or steal.

A RANTER CLAIMS Lee Anderson should not be voted for because he is “not a politician.” I’d say what we need in office are more NON-politicians.

USED TO BE DECENT PEOPLE were ashamed to be on welfare and food stamps. Now it seems everyone is proud of the fact.

WHAT DO YOU THINK THE media would be doing right now if a Republican president was in office and our embassies were overrun and our ambassador was killed and there were accusations they had asked for more security repeatedly right before an election?

JOHN BARROW ONLY votes with the Republicans when his vote is not needed for the Democrats to win. When there is a tight vote, he always votes with the Democrats.

PAUL BROUN SAYS evolution, embryology and the big bang are lies from the pit of hell. I say they show that our God is an awesome God.

"...a survey of 60,000 households

... shows over 800,000 people found jobs, bringing unemployment below 8 percent? Really big families or bad math?"

Neither; it was what is refered to as advocacy research; it wasn't 60,000 households actually sampled; it was a sampling to REPRESENT 60000 households. From that sample it was extrapolated there were 800,000 newly employed.

Why not? It's worked before with second-hand smoking statistics and the selected sampling that supports human generated global warming.

"IF YOU VOTE for Romney … he will win. "

Maybe. But only if it's on the first count; otherwise, no Democrat has lost a recount that was not overseen by the Feds. Ask Linda Sanchez or Al Franken; statistically NONE of the "found" or "challenged" votes went for the Repubican in the recounts in those and other close elections. With no paper trail, who thinks there won't be the usual chicanery?

"ROMNEY ...said he would cut funding to PBS..."

PBS; Partisan Bull Stuff. They need to live off the liberal's dime, not mine. I watched the PBS' two specials on the presidential candidates; the one on Obama was a two hour paean of praise, setting him up as a struggling manifest destiny hero cum man of the people. The portrait of Romney was somewhat less; less of a portrait than wall poster- two dimensional with drawn on horns, glasses, blacked out teeth and mustaches.

Lee Anderson and Paul Broun

Lee Anderson and Paul Broun should give joint press conferences. That would get us on the map bigtime.

@8 Let Me Make Something Real Clear!

If we had a Republican president in office instead of the Care Less Golf Playing King and he was informed that they needed more security to protect our embassies and personnel, they would have received it immediately and it would never have been over run or any deaths of our Americans.

2nd, our Republican President sure would not be blaming the attack on some 2nd rate YouTube Video.

The media wouldn't have nothing to broadcast.

Richmond County cops kick in wrong door

... again. This keeps happening. When interviewed the reporter asked, "Isn't that illegal? You raided a house with no warrant." The public affairs officer (presumably, as he was openly on camera) refused to say so; instead weaseling, "We had a warrant; we entered the wrong house."

The matter is 'under advisement' by RC Internal Affairs. They promise to amend procedures to prevent this in the future. Same response as the last time.

Let me propose a modest solution in the biblical 'eye for an eye' format: You raid the wrong house because you're too stupid, lazy, illiterate or callous to check the address, and at some time, unnanounced, YOUR home's door will be smashed in, YOUR family will be thrown on the ground, restrained, guns will be pointed at YOUR spouse and children's heads while YOUR possessions thrown around as ski-masked goons swear at them.

Betcha that kind of shrug, walk-away, "no harm, no foul" police response crap would totally cease.

Myfather posted this only days ago:

"I've been a deputy for 15 years and have participated in hundreds of search warrants. In my 15 years, I've never participated in one where we hit the wrong house or apartment. I know, I know, it has happened before with departments, but with all the requirements needed to get a no knock search warrant today, it's EXTREMELY RARE. '

'No knock search warrants have many requirements that must be met. You must have a VERY detailed description of the residence, to include windows, window shades, lights normally on, mailboxes, color of residence, color of shades and blinds, and numbers posted on the residence, a detail description of the interior of the residence, to include locations of all bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchen, living room, which is usually obtained from the confidential informant. The magistrate will most times want to see a written detailed layout of the residence and the plan of entry. Which will also be gone over before executing the search warrant. Then for a no knock warrant, you must prove the existence of weapons or firearms, which is usually through the informant and their observations while inside the residence."

SOMEONE'S sure got it wrong, or Richmond County has no such procedures.

Barrow will win

And watch him pull a Clinton, voting more with Republicans in order to save his butt in two years when he will get opposition from a viable Republican candidate. He will do whatever is necessary to stay on the gravy train; like 95% of the rest of that crowd in Washington.

evolution, embryology and the big bang

These are theories. If Broun thinks they are lies from the pit of hell then he is a close minded individual.
Whom I wouldn't vote for in a million years!!!(by then I would have evolved into a superior being though and wouldn't care

Good Measurement

" Let’s vote for Mitt Romney to stop all of this nonsense"

I did like Mitt's statement on how he would evaluate programs for whether they should have their funding cut. He said he would look at each program and ask "is it worth borrowing money from China to fund this program". That's a pretty good rule of thumb.

Paul Broun is welcome to have
Unpublished

Paul Broun is welcome to have whatever beliefs he has. However, He has no business being on a committee for science, space & technology. As for Barrow, If I were Georgia resident I'd happily vote for him. He acknowledges voting with democrats AND republicans. We have gotten too divided- either too far right or too far left. I want more people voting for what's right for everyone no matter what party they're affiliated.
