Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

Comments from readers:

I WANT TO RAVE about the customer service at Pearl Vision. They were very friendly and understood exactly what I needed. I now have trifocals, which work better for me than bifocals. I give them all an A-plus.

RANT FOR DR. AZZIZ. I was appalled at his comment from his blog concerning the early retirees. Dr. Azziz, once again, funds were spent on a study before offering us the early retirement. Much to the surprise of MCG officials, more of us participated than anticipated. Believe me, we deserved the offer on early retirement, and are most thankful … and we are thankful that we did not have to work for you!

THIS IS A RAVE FOR Walker Paint and Body for finding my purse on the side of the road and calling us to return it. We do have some good and honest people in this world.

GO AHEAD AND TRY to tax the wealthy all you wish. They will simply send lobbyists to create more loopholes. If you do succeed with new taxes, the rich will just fly off in their private jets to go live where their money already is, overseas.

WE ARE DAMN SICK and tired of all the Republican lies, lies, lies, especially against our president. Our president does not cowboy into foreign countries to dump tens of thousands of soldiers to die without proper equipment and body armor. He gets other countries to join us in mutual efforts toward peace or the ending of violence. He’s improved efforts to help the VA. Thank goodness he’s in for the next four years!

I HAVE YET TO HEAR any reasonable setup to take care of all these unaborted kids that abortion foes had promised would be loved and cared for. Where are these foes when the kids are being mutilated and tortured even to the death?

THANK GOODNESS FOR new Democrats to replace the insane people who thought rape was approved by God. Or that kids need to be born of rape.

HOW MANY FREE advertisements are we going to permit on those poles or ground stakes near sidewalks? If you keep letting those ads build up, no one will buy ads in the daily paper anymore! So the AC should campaign to have them taken down.

HILLARY CLINTON IS already preparing herself for a presidential run in 2016 by distancing herself from the Benghazi debacle.

John McAfee

John McAfee looks like the devil. I'm serious. Look at the ears and face. To think I have his name on my desktop looking right at me.

First Time Unemployment was

First Time Unemployment was 370,000 this morning. Still higher than when they lied to us in the weeks just BEFORE the election......and still indicating a very weak economy that the last thing needed is tax increases on the people who own businesses and hire people....or used to hire people before the socialists took over.

Dearest Democrat(s), instead of pointing and poking and spewing and spiting and making yucky faces at anybody who opposes the president (Obama isn't the first prez that is critizied for the choices he makes, so asking ppl to stop is just foolish) why dont you spend your time writing about all the wonderful things he does for this country and possibly for you personally. I am really interested to hear what good things you have to say. Thank you.

Pro choice?

So it is up to be to decide if a human being lives or dies, just because they currently reside in my body? Interesting if not selfish and morbid concept.

i think my mother may have

i think my mother may have written in rant #2. if they look to cut benefits azziz can expect another costly lawsuit (in addition to the GRU)

regarding rant #8 since they aren't political signs, i believe anyone is at liberty to snatch them up. not sure about local ordinances prohibiting them.

What is sad is I know this kid's (33 is still a kid to me) family and they are good, gentle folks.

Dog is on high alert. We also have some of those dogs that bark here and bite over there.

Keron Way is one of the worst areas out here, with Meth heads mixed in with families who can't afford to get out of there. It was on this road a certain clergy pulled out hardware on a lowlife. That miscreant escaped to Atlanta cause of the "heat" in the area. Thugs and bullies running roughshod over good people. White, Black and Hispanic all.

Makes me want to go vigilante up in there. But the law would favor the troublemakers.

Clowns to the left, Jokers to the right, Here I am stuckin the middle....

Maybe his history making, inaugurating, pontificating, fundraising eminence Roundtree has a solution. Inquiring minds want to know.

Every time I see the rediculous rant that people who oppose killing unborn children should be required to take care of those children, I feel like my head is going to explode. Just how much responsibility do these people want to shirk?

Unpublished

Are some not capable of making their own choices if they choose to put themselves in a position to become impregnanted? Or do you prefer that it be up to government to tell ppl what to do with consequences of their choice. Perhaps dont procreate would be a suggestion for some. If you carry the breast cancer gene, would you like a government created law that says you must get your breasts removed and any female children you have and they have and so on must do the same? Point being where is the line drawn.

Murder. ??????
Unpublished

sooooo should we all turn into vegans? Or does your "murder." only stop at human beings?

Think of this the next time you are cooking with eggs, or eating an omlet or scrambling them up with some cheese, ham, onions and tomatoes....the way I like 'em.

If "the consequences of their choice" is a human being, neither the government, nor the mother, nor the father has the right to order that human being's excecution.

Picking and choosing too much. I guess I should have been more specific. Perhaps a person who isnt fond of dogs or cats and decides that their lives are not worth living. They have no plans of eating them, or using their fur to keep warm or create shelter of their bones and teeth as utensils or tools. Just plain ole end their life. What is the word for that?

I hope those who are singing

I hope those who are singing the praises of Obama realizes that in four more years he will be out of there and that those who depend on "his" largess might start planning for a new way of life...perhaps even working (when able). Maybe stop surrendering the jobs to immigrants and grab one while they can.

A Baby, We All Were One...Remember?

oneofthesame, stop it, you are out of control! I don't care(really I do)what another person does with their body, it's when there is another little body concerned, that I feel it is wrong to destroy it. An abortion is nothing but a convenience and a solution to an action someone should have been more careful about. In this day and time, there is no reason for pregnancy, if it is not wanted, and to become pregnant is just plain ole' ignorance or stupidity. I put the blame on both the man and woman, but in the end, it is plainly on the woman to protect herself. Not only to not get pregnant, but there are still so many diseases she can get, and one is still deadly! Oh, I almost forgot, anyone that just kills animals, as dogs and cats, that a low-down piece of whale-poop in the ocean(lowest thing in the world)! Evil, just evil!

Oh good.

I see the Democrats have named Maxine Waters to be the ranking Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) named Waters to its list of corrupt members of Congress in its 2005, 2006, 2009 and 2011 reports. Waters is replacing Barney Frank who was also consistently on several organizations' Most Corrupt lists.No surprises here.

Harry Reid is currently at

Harry Reid is currently at the podium in the Senate making a plea for a waiver to allow bottled water, unbuttered popcorn, and snacks in the Senate auditorium during a sceening of Lincoln.

The country is going to hell in a handbasket and Harry is more concerned with snacks and a movie. Can't pass a budget,can't pass a jobs bill, can't negotiate a tax deal, but he's got plenty of time for this. Does anyone else feel like driving to Washington and getting him by his scrawny neck and squeezing until his eyeballs bug out?
