Rants & Raves

THE OFFICIAL U.S. government Medicare handbook is 140 pages of governmentese apparently designed using confusion and boredom to stop you from reading its gibberish. Government sends these expensive books to con you into believing you can understand those word-twisting manipulators. Ask your representatives and senators to explain it, if they can.

A TERRORIST ATTACK in France was carried out by a “suspected jihadist cell of young Frenchmen recently converted to Islam.” Isn’t it odd that terrorists convert before they go on the warpath?

THAT WAS A RIDICULOUS idea for someone to just take a stray off the streets. You can risk diseases or physical harm that way if you are not used to animals. Plus, people with allergies will not just pick up any dogs. So, yes, the strays need to be reported.

IF PINK IS GOOD enough for the American Cancer Society to use as the color for survivors,
surely it’s good enough for a little girl’s playhouse in the neighborhood in Evans. The neighbors who are complaining about the color should be grateful that all they have to do is look at the pink playhouse and not have to wear a pink ribbon as a reminder of the worst things in life. It can always be worse.

CAN’T CAR DEALERS just be upfront with these low lease payments? They show the low payment only to put the high down payment in small print.

RANT TO NONDRINKING societies: They nurse grudges for centuries. It’s better to mix it up, make merry and forget about things.

PEOPLE WANT TO say that the Honey Boo Boo show is a disgrace to Southerners but the fact is many Southerners fit the profile of the people in the TV show. Just walk into a Walmart. For the most part, the South is more Honey Boo than Scarlett O’Hara. Sometimes the truth hurts.

THANK GOD FOR Martha King, who works at Augusta Cares. Please give that wonderful lady a raise.
