Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

RAVE AND THANK YOU to the lovely lady who stopped her car in the middle of Georgia Ave­nue, got out and helped retrieve my precious Maltese dog from the street. I also want to thank all the people who stopped their cars and waited until she was safe. I can’t thank you all enough.

YOU ARE MORE ABLE to walk than I am, but I see you driving those little scooters in the grocery stores. Why don’t you push your cart like everybody else?

OBAMA DESERVES SQUAT. As I recall, the economy was fine all through Bush’s term, even after 9/11, when a major downturn would be expected. The economy didn’t falter until the summer before the election, when Bush was a lame duck and Obama was the heir apparent. Obama did manage to add a few trillion to the deficit, however, more than all the other presidents combined. Congratulations.

ROMNEY? OBAMA? Give me a break. I quit voting 30 years ago when I figured out it was a matter of voting for the crook of your choice.

RANT TO THE ARMY Corps of Engineers and the lake levels. It looks like you have a workshop set up on Oct. 24. The article says you will discuss hydropower, water management and water safety, too. What you told my parents and grandparents before the basin was flooded was that it would be about increasing land values and recreation and family and all the good things that you don’t seem to want to talk about anymore. Just another example of dishonest government.

WHAT IS HAPPENING over here in North Augus­ta in our nice neighborhoods? People are parking their cars in their yards more and more. Also, cars are sitting around with no tags on them, and I know that is a code violation. Also please take your signs down when your yard sale is over or if your pet has been found.

RANT TO THE Rich­mond County sheriff’s department. If a patrol unit is not on a call, then it should be doing traffic enforcement. I can’t drive without seeing expired tags, no tail lights, no headlights, changing lanes without signaling, speeding, running stoplights, hearing loud music. Several times the offending car was next to a patrol car.

RANT TO ALL homeowners who hire cheap labor yard men and allow them to blow all their yard waste into the storm drain and cause a big problem for all the other neighbors. It is a violation, and you will get a fine.

Hmmm

If you don't vote, don't scream when they come to drag you out of your house and remove your weapons. Voter apathy is why we have the situation we do today.

Cars on yard!. Cars with no tags! Yard sale sign hanging around! Oh the Humanity of it all!

Sheriff's deputies should do better at basics. And each time I think that, the next thought is the speeds itravel at, the lane changes i make, and then I kinda like that they don't patrol those items real closely. Just being honest!

Cops

Why is it one week the rants are for cops giving somebody a ticket for a headlight when they should be out fighting "real" crime, then the next the rant is for not giving tickets for minor issues. The cops just can't seem to get it right. I love 'em and thank 'em whenever I see one anyway. And you should too. It's easy. Just practice this line, "Officer thank you for what you do."

I hope tonights debate

I hope tonights debate doesn't change my mind, like that would happen. I will vote today since I will be out of town on the 6th. Point is with just a little planning you don't have to be a "disenfranchised" voter. And remember, if you don't vote you give up your right to complain

Seeing you travel in all 57 states, why don't you pick up an absentee ballot for each and vote.

Mornin' Ya'll

So which rant should we tear apart today?
I say the guy who doesn't vote. If you don't vote then don't talk to me about politics because you lost that right when you decided not to participate in the electoral process.

Quickie Commission Vote This Morning

Late yesterday a story by Susan McCord was posted online that the Richmond County Commission will have a meeting this morning to review and supposedly approve the TEE Center agreements. The story is still online and I encourage everyone to read it, even though it is extremely hard to find. Deke is unavailable for comments and Joe Jackson had some ready made comments. He said, "We're pregnant and we can either abort or have the baby."

So I'm guessing, THEY know the votes will be there early today. They know who is in town and who isn't. Somebody tell Joe Jackson abortion is okay in cases of rape.

The person that does not vote
Unpublished

The person that does not vote might want to reconsider and get out there and vote for Romney. If we don't get out and vote Obama out we deserve what we are getting, which is plenty already and will get much worse if Obama is allowed to continue his assault on decent working people.

The EPA is holding off until

The EPA is holding off until after the election to announce new mandates that will likely make the cost of gas and the cost of heating to skyrocket. Oh and the loss of an estimated 7 million plus jobs.

The UN is going to have people monitoring polling places to make certain that liberal voters are not hassled by conservatives. Apparently there is no problem with it happening the other way around, huh Holder?

TSD? What is that? Do I what them as friends too? Am I missing out?

There is another acronym that is used on this forum that I don't know what it means..bugs me everytime I see it. I think countyman uses it.
For some reason I never have asked what it means. Now I can't remember it.
