Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

SELF-CONFESSED serial killer Reinaldo Rivera was sentenced to death in 2004, so why is it taking all this time to make it happen? The appeal process is just getting out of hand and delaying matters forever. Sorry, but I think it’s time to pull the switch.

BURKE COUNTY Board of Education, you have a lice problem. This is a public health hazard and needs to be dealt with.

TO THE PERSON who complained about tougher requirements for a driver’s license: They are the result of the federal government intruding on local authority because of national security.

THE ONLY DIFFERENCE between Democrats and Communists is that the Democrats don’t use firing squads. Yet.

I HATE IT WHEN people blame President Obama for his awful debate performance the other night when we all know deep down that it was Bush’s fault.

IT’S PUMPKIN TIME. Let’s eat more of it and try out the vegetarian dishes in honor of Vegetarian Month.

I WISH WFXG would get its act together. Two weeks straight now, their station is troubled during the Monday night broadcasts of the new Bones episodes. That is really ticking me off.

RANTS TO ALL THE people who put Chipper Jones on a pedestal. All he did was play ball. I was a construction worker for 30 years. I am 52 years old, and I cannot find a job. I built you your houses, your offices and you put him on a pedestal. And you wonder why we can’t solve the problems in this country.

RANT TO THE MOTHER at the Evans track behind the Columbia County library who leaves her first-grade child at the park playing. Do you know someone could snatch your precious little child? Mothers, please supervise your children. They are God’s gift.

I WOULD LIKE TO ASK all the people who voted for Scott Peebles to vote for Freddie Sanders in the upcoming election.

WE LOST ANOTHER icon when Andy Williams passed away. It seems like every year we lose another one. I am glad I lived in an era where real music and real entertainment was found.

WHY CAN’T CHURCHES pay taxes on all these million-dollar buildings they have? Most of these big churches around here, nothing but rich people go to them anyway.

Spoken like a person who doesn't know the definition of either term.

No, unfortunately, most of the congregation is not rich, but their dollars are making the organization and clergy very much so.
The rest of us contribute involuntarily every time we pay our property taxes.

Not only The Obamessiah's performance in debate, but everything else he's serially failed at for the past four years.

Aw come on now. We all know
Unpublished

Aw come on now. We all know this a country based on law. And please quit refering to someone flipping the switch. In my opinion the reason we have so many murders is because we quit flipping the switch years ago and substituted a nice doctor recommended process so the perp wouldn't be inconvenienced with even a little pain. When I was young I lived in columbus ohio you could count the number of murders on one hand because no one wanted to fry in an electric chair.

"WHY CAN’T CHURCHES pay taxes on all these million-dollar buildings"

Don't worry. We're going to get 'em with the "rain tax".

Pretty soon you will see big churches with dirt parking lots.

My house is 1200 feet from the road. I was going to asphalt the driveway.......NOT NOW. I 'spect I'll be investing in another load or two of gravel. It's water permeable.

Um...we don't pull switches anymore. Some folks still think we use the electric chair.

I feel the same way my friend. It seems that whenever I'm watching my favorite shows there's technical problems. I bet it never happens on shows I dislike!

The main difference between
Unpublished

The main difference between democrats and communists is not firing squads, it is courage. The communists supported a stupid system but they at least had the courage of their convictions, democrats do not have courage of anything. Lies and innuendo is their craft, that and wanting everything for free so they do not have to work for a living like the true Americans, conservatives.

Just saw John Barrow (narrow eyes and all) with his guns saying he still supports the 2nd amendment and that the NRA endorses him. Gotta do some research on this one. I can't beleive Charlton Heston would buy into this shift to the middle by a Left Wing Democrat.

Yes, the NRA supports Barrow: http://barrowforcongress.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=7...

I don't think Charlton Heston is supporting anyone, he died.

Good Morning America {{{22}}}

I wouldn't miss the "Lie - True Debate " tonight unless God takes me before then.

Rumors are that the King SMNCICBHO will wear a neck brace to hold his head up off the podium.

Obama/Romney
Unpublished

To all the supporters of Obama: You need to understand that Romney is a business man that only looks at the bottom line of how to save money and make more money. President Obama is a compassionate "Human Being" that considers everyone when making a decision. This election is going to be about Money, Power & Race. Laws are going to be changed just to ensure that President Obama loses or has a "Heck" of a time getting anything done in office. Just sit back and watch how people act if President Obama wins another 4 years. We got people threatening to fire people from their jobs if President Obama wins.(#Racism) We got people threatening not to hire people if President Obama wins. (#Racism).....Now if Romney wins, watch within a matter of weeks a news report will come on Fox News saying "The Economy is getting better" or "Unemployment claims fall to a record low" and the only reason is because President Obama is out (#Racism)....Watch what happens !

Dr. Snelling's photo in the jail

Dr. Snelling's photo in the jail report or whatever the Chronicle calls theirs is kind of funny. At least he smiled. I bet he's having a big a laugh as the rest of us.

In light of recent forensic technological advances that have exonerated and freed some wrongly convicted people, I'm not too crazy about rushing death penalty cases unless it is 100% slam dunk.
However, in the Rivera case, there is no reason for it to still be lingering.
