Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

IF YOU ARE A truthful person and run a clean campaign, you become the winner. Likewise, when you run a negative campaign full of lies and hypocrisy, you become the loser. Congratula­tions to Presi­dent Obama.

SOMEONE PAID FOR my goods at Lifeway Book Store. I would like to thank them very much. They wanted to remain anonymous, but I wish I knew who they were. God bless them.

JESSICA DILL ON Channel 12, please slow down. No one can understand what you are saying.

RAVE TO WALTER WILLIAMS’ commentary on the lack of values held by the majority of Americans today. We need a revival to get back to the values that made America great.

FOUR YEARS AGO, someone said this is the first time I have ever been proud of my country. I have always been proud of my country, but now I am totally disgusted with most of the people who live here.

SECOND THESSALONIANS 2:11 says that in the end times “God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.” Anybody who can re-elect a proven disaster is certainly suffering from a delusion.

IT WILL BE INTERESTING to see if the sale of firearms for protection, burglar alarms, etc., increases when the new sheriff takes office. Based on his comments related to arresting fewer criminals and more focus on social work, it would seem that we may soon be even more unsafe than we are.

OBAMA WINS AGAIN! When Rush Limbaugh is the leader of the Re­pub­lican Party it’s not that difficult.

WHEN A RUSSIAN PRESIDENT praises a U.S. president, it’s clear things are not working right. Watch your back, America. Watch out for Putin; watch out for Obama.

OK, ENOUGH WITH the comments about Round­tree being elected by the black community. Did you ever think some of the white community was fed up with the “Southern good ole boy system” that is very much alive and well in the sheriff’s office?

I WORKED AT SRS many years, and I would say that the three-week furloughs will not make any difference whatsoever to their overall schedules!

NOW THAT VOTER FRAUD is legal, it is OK for tax also?

#6, Bible verse

Back in Old Testament days it was deemed appropriate to kill one by dropping large rocks on them. It was called stoning.
Given the results of the last election when gay marriage and the legalization of marijuana was approved by a couple of states, I offer this:
Leviticus 20:13 "If a man lays with another man, as with a woman, he should be stoned". There you have it folks, the authority straight from the Bible.

Forward

From the Associated Press (byline IBRAHIM BARZAK and JOSEF FEDERMAN):

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Palestinian militants took aim at Jerusalem for the first time Friday, launching a rocket attack on the holy city in a major escalation of hostilities as Israel pressed forward with a relentless campaign of airstrikes in the Gaza Strip.

More slanted reporting. Hamas is aiming deeper and deeper into Israel. Israel is retaliating properly. But the mainstream media is using language that suggests that Israel is the aggressor. Nothing could be further from the truth. Hamas started the conflict with the rocket attacks. The number of Hamas rocket attacks has been unprecedented. Obviously they have been stockpiling and planning for a long, long time. How many rockets were supplied by Iran? How many by the United States? Petraeus won't tell.

Stoning

Well, Jake, I think there is something in the Constitution (8th Amendment) about cruel and unusual punishment; and, in MHO, the U.S. Constitution takes precedent over any book or verse written by some bearded hermit over 2000 years ago.

And, as the author of #6 writes, some folk are suffering from delusions...probably those that hold fast to the delusional ranting of those old biblical prophets and seers.

Augusta Exchange

A mixed-use development is coming to West Augusta(great place for Whole Foods or Trader Joes). This is one of the last undeveloped tracts left in the Augusta Exchange area. The land is located right next to the I-20 west/Walton Way Extension ramp. The property was going to become a 300k sq. ft. lifestyle center before the recession. Then developers changed their minds, and created plans for the 300k sq. ft center/160 residential units/office space due to the Augusta mall expansion. The final plans ended up being 300 units/75k sq. ft. of commercial space a while back.

Now the property will finally be developed, but they don't really give any specifics in terms of residential or commercial.... A few of the details concerning the development is listed below.....
http://appweb.augustaga.gov/agendapublic/Bluesheet.aspx?ItemID=17170&Mee...

The Augusta Exchange area continues to grow really fast. Home2Suites by Hilton, Dunkin Donuts/Which Wich, Residence Inn by Marriot, Tin Drum Cafe, Medac expansion(70 jobs), renovation of the Wheeler Executive Center, Mcdonalds, Savannah River Bank subdivision(commercial lots), multiple new buildings behind Doctors Hospital, and Exchange Lane(new road).

The Constitution takes precedent over the Bible? With Obama? Neither, but his swearing in was to the Constitution, etc. Oh well. Par for the course.

Old Testament Ordinances

I know this will be wasted on some, but, after JESUS came and gave HIS life(blood) for each and every one of us, many ordinances(from the O.T.) were not in effect anymore, or required. GG pap, call us delusional, call us anything you want, "we've been called worse by better"(old saying). Time will tell if those "old biblical prophets" scribed GOD's word or not! By the way, homosexuality is still wrong in the New Testament, and there will be a judgment for it, if there is not a repentance and change from it. Alhans, you know I admire you and agree with you very often, but, "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth" means replacing something either physically or monetarily. Capitol punishment for murder is still required, even our current laws(in some states) has that judgment. "Thou shall do no murder", is one of the Big commandments. The word "kill" was translated incorrectly. Murder is from the Hebrew manuscripts, there is a difference between the two words!

Since Obama and Putin are

Since Obama and Putin are such good friends, we should farm out our CIA operations to the Russians. They could probably do a better job of determining the facts.

True words than most people dont believe, they don't think that Russia's government hates and is envious of America, always have been and always will be. And keep an eye and ear out to the Russian government's allies!

Susan Rice

Okay, near as I can tell, here is the crucial point in the Benghazi cover-up. Petraeus said the CIA sent Susan Rice the info saying the incident was liked to Al Qaeda, but someone redacted all references to Al Qaeda for security reasons. Petraeus said he didn’t do it and doesn’t know who did. It does appear strange that we can’t trust our UN Ambassador with sensitive information.

For goodness sakes, if the doggone CIA can’t trace that back to find out who redacted the Al Qaeda references, we have no hope in the international espionage battle.

By the way, even Chris Matthews is upset that Susan Rice was allowed to go on the talk shows to promote the video lie. He said, shouldn't someone have called her up and told her the truth.

SeenIt, I do get the feeling

SeenIt, I do get the feeling Hillary was involved because she is staying away now. She is almost untouchable is the problem. She could have talked to Obama and they decided to downplay the attacks to nothing more than demonstrations because of the election. Remember how she kept saying they would get the man who made the video?

The Firearm Sales Quandary

Quoting:
"IT WILL BE INTERESTING to see if the sale of firearms for protection, burglar alarms, etc., increases when the new sheriff takes office."

Question: How can you tell the difference between those who are buying firearms because of Mr. Roundtree philosophy vs. because of Mr. Obama's political agenda.

Downplaying

My thoughts...They want to downplay the act because they want Hillary running in the next Presidents race....also want Rice as Secretary of State....which some Rep Senators won't let that happen.......

For immediate release: Dec.

For immediate release: Dec. 7, 1941

Demonstrations by Japanese nationals living in Hawaii have resulted in several of our ships being destroyed. The Hawaiian Japanese were apparently angered by Dole Pineapple's decision to bring in more Filipino workers. President Roosevelt and Secretary of State Cordell Hull have announced they will punish the Dole executives.

Article explains better than I

P knew from the git go.....but he said the administration initially withheld the suspicion that extremists with links to Al Qaida were involved to avoid tipping off terrorist groups......(which doesn't make sense to me)

From the AJC

"Petraeus said that reference was removed from the final version, although he wasn't sure which federal agency deleted it."

I think this is key. I'm betting the deletions was ordered by Hillary-Obama.

McCain & Graham

Some are jumping on their case...I think they are wise to get to the bottom of this.....we could have protected our men in this attack & didn't do it...there is a reason they stood down...we don't know why...geez.....we get a luke warm replay of what THEY want us to know....if they can see Bin Laden attack on wide screen ...you know dang well they saw this attack too.

I still think that Petraeus is leaving & that has something to do with this attack.jmo....
