Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

THE NEW RICHMOND County police cars are nice, but as with the old fleet of Crown Vics, these models do not have turn signals either.

THIS COUNTRY’S motto “In God We Trust” has turned to “In the Devil We Trust” in this election.

IN REGARD to the Petraeus affair: I’m beginning to think someone wants to destroy our military from the top down.

UNLESS THE Repub­li­can Party gets its stuff together, remember you read it here, Hillary Clin­ton will be our next president.

I HAVE HEARD MORE about Gen. Petraeus’s problems in one day than I have heard about Benghazi in one month.

OBAMA AND THE Democrats will tax us back to the Stone Age (those few of us that still pay taxes).

HOW IS IT THAT a uniformed police person from Columbia County can come into my neighborhood where I live in Richmond County with a uniform on and official car and spend hours at my neighbor’s house? And no, they do not live at that place.

CONCERNING THE CIA director’s affair and other people on affairs: It’s not their fault for using poor judgment. It’s the wife’s fault. The blame is always placed on someone else. What a better marriage and love for each other if the “man” would admit it was his fault. Ha! What man would?

RANT ABOUT the Geor­gia lottery. As a business owner that has a lottery machine, I can tell you that the compensation to the business is so little that it is barely worth having the machine in place. When it started, businesses were compensated. Now, the compensation is almost nothing on the sales, and not the payouts. Are there other retailers as frustrated?

KUDOS TO THE three Columbia County school board members for declining to take new Apple iPads. As Roxanne Whita­ker said, “I say we save the money for something else.” Thanks to the three members who realized the money could better be put to use elsewhere!

FOR THOSE WHO are pro-life, why aren’t you protesting in-vitro fertilization? Thousands and thousands of embryos are discarded each year by fertility clinics. I don’t understand why this is not a concern.

Just Wondering Last Rant

How many of those In planted embryos that is giving life to someone has been aborted? I consider that a making of life, not aborting one.

Why don't you add to your concern all the eggs that are discarded every 28 days and all the sperms that are killed while watching a porn movie.

I hope the Hillary supporters

I hope the Hillary supporters are considering that other Democrats have announced, kind of, their intention to run in 2016. Joe Biden for one. Hillary won't just step into the job. She will have one of those "nasty" primaries that Romney had to endure....
Remember too, that she (along with others) was defeated in the '08 primary by Obama.

Cobalt George...It is ALWAYS the wife's fault...:)

Greg Gutfeld had the best answer to that I thought: A man likes to tell his little stories, the wife is bored to death hearing them over and over. Then a good looking, intelligent woman comes along and hangs on to his every word.... Really strokes the old ego... And then...and then...

Yeh, what's up with that? Tried to buy a Quick Pick last night at two places and got a No Go.

Need some supplemental income to pay my STORMWATER TAX for the STORMWATER SYSTEM I don't have and never will have.

Cobalt I was thinking the same thing and it is not a life until fertilized. Why worry about discarded eggs. Millions more are made every second along with sperms.

A little cutie this am...:)

A RETIREE'S LAST TRIP to Piggly Wiggly.

Yesterday, I was at my local Piggly Wiggly buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for my loyal pet, Jake, the Wonder Dog, and was in the check-out line when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog. What did she think I had, an elephant?

So because I'm retired and have little to do, on impulse, I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn't, because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a Perfect Diet and that the way that it works is, to load your pants pockets with Purina Nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.)

Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care, because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stopped to Pee on a Fire Hydrant and a car hit me.

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard.

Piggly Wiggly won't let me shop there anymore. Better watch what you ask retired people. They have all the time in the World to think of crazy things to say.

Could it possibly be his sick mama he's coming to see??

Guilfoyle?

How about it Commissioner Guilfoyle? What is your position on charging rural South Richmond County residents a Stormwater Tax for a SERVICE YOU DON'T PROVIDE, a SYSTEM THAT DOES NOT EXIST AND NEVER WILL EXIST and adding it to our already ILLEGAL, DUAL STANDARD PROPERTY TAX BILL?

Again they want to TAX us for services they don't provide and for which the monies will be spent virturally 100% DOWNTOWN. And we always hear "it's only a few dollars a month", "it's only a penny on the dollar for the schools", "it's only a penny on the dollar for Paul & Billy's TEE", "it's only a penny on the dollar for the roads". South Richmond County has been "pennied", "dollared", and illegal tax system'd to DEATH and HAS NEVER, IS NOT, AND NEVER WILL GET ANYTHING FOR THEIR MONEY .....especially a STORMWATER TAX.

For our money we MIGHT get 40 rocks and a "your smashed, broken, cracked, eroded driveway culvert pipe looks fine to us and the water plant next door flushing the wells into your DITCH has nothing to do with the erosion...even though it hasn't rained significantly in ten years so the erosion must happen by freaking magic....have a nice day....signed, your friendly ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT".

"remember you read it here,

"remember you read it here, Hillary Clin­ton will be our next president."

Yep, you are probably right. Wonder who she will blame for the mess she inherited? Especially that $20 trillion debt, $1 trillion annual deficit, still high unemployment, credit rating downgraded to BBB, and the fact that Obamacare is costing us twice what was projected and there is a shortage of doctors. I bet I know her answer to the problem.....let's RAISE TAXES on the wealthy...you know....the people making $75,000 a year. By then only about 40% of Americans, or less, will be paying ALL of the federal income taxes so they will have to lower the bar on who is "rich". And the 70,000,000 people on food stamps will be tweeting each other on their Obamaphones to remind their comrades (and I use that term in the strongest hammer and sickle sense) to gleefully run to the polls and vote for Hillary.

Meanwhile the dwindling number of Republicans will be gathered in dimly lit back rooms, sipping bourbon, comparing performance of various tax free bonds, and singing along to their favorite song....."Get A Job".

"I was thinking the same

"I was thinking the same thing and it is not a life until fertilized."

They ARE fertilized, in a test tube. The fertilized ones not needed are poured down the drain; or frozen in some cases. As I understand it, several embryos are inserted into the uterus, hoping for one to implant. The ones that don't, die and are passed back out.

Retired Army's comment @11:30pm

I was right, you didn't read a comment of mine yesterday, or otherwise you would have known about GOD's blessings and cursings. HE doesn't send the cursings on purpose, we, as a nation, have brought them on ourselves. What's happening in America now is the result of men that have an agenda, and trust me Retired, they did not, and still do not care about America, or you! You are correct in your smart-aleck remark, "GOD always prevails", HE always has, and always will! As far as "the sky falling", oh yeah, a piece of it did, three weeks ago today. Oh-oh, did you hear that little "ping" sound? That was a some truth falling out of the sky for you and those that think like you. Oh yeah, you are the only one that is cracking up over your 11:28 post, you and your remarks are not as funny as you think. But if the sky not falling, Hillary as president, a nut like Bill Maher makes you smile, so be it. Some of us find it really sad........................And GGpap, I hoped you had changed, but...........................
