Rants & Raves

IN THE PAST DECADE, 3,300 babies have been murdered by abortion while 321 children have been murdered by someone using a semi-automatic rifle. When are we going to ban abortion?

AS A WOMAN, I KNOW I’m no physical match for most attackers; with my revolver, I am. Tell you what: When Diane Feinstein and Barbara Boxer hand in their carry permits and dismiss their security details, I’ll hand it over.

THE NEW HONDAS that the RCSD motorcycle patrol is using don’t sound like motorcycles. They sound like George Jetson’s jet car!

IF I WERE CONSIDERING moving to the Augusta area, I could simply pick up a copy of The Chronicle and read the Rants & Raves. I would quickly reconsider. After reading only a few entries I could safely assume that Augusta has the dumbest people on the planet. Good lord. People write about things without one second of research. Wow!

TO PARAPHRASE Yosemite Sam, “Augusta commissioners is so stupid.”

OBAMA AND HIS GANG weren’t worried about gun control during “Fast and Furious.” I guess one border patrolman’s life is not worth worrying about.

RAVE TO THE man who is challenging Grovetown for charging him with a firearms violation because he test-fired a BB gun in his back yard. I hope you demand, not ask for, demand a jury trial and don’t leave it up to a judge. You should have asked for a search warrant because a badge does not give anyone a right to be armed and force you into your own house. I hope The Augusta Chronicle would print this, but y’all are on the same side as the Gestapo police so you probably won’t.

A MUCH DESERVED RAVE for Gail and her group at Doctors Hospital MRI facility. She was so kind to me when I was in terrible pain before my MRI. As it turns out I will have spine surgery. I have dealt with her in the past and she remembered me. She is a superb nurse.

Yes, that's a good one.
Seenit, I opened your link and almost spit up. Trey yelling "Bingo" after catching KSL in one of her stories. Some things never change.

"...BOE in Columbia county & put it in Clayton county

& you would see great results.....take Clayton county BOE & put it in Columbia county & watch it tumble..."

No, I don't believe so. The difference is one that has been pointed out by others so I won't belabour it too much. If you were to take the POPULATIONS -- adults and children- you would see a reversal of results; it's the parents pushing their kids, parents who know first-hand the benefits of an education that make the difference.

CCBOE is as overstaffed, ignorant and unwilling to change as any.

You sure know how to bring back old memories. So much fun, all were so happy, but the memories also had the sad thought of some that are now posting in the Lords Holly Paper. I wonder what they are posting about what is happening to their America. They were TRUE Americans!

Thanks B4, really enjoyed going back in Memory Lane.

One I had posted before.

Let's don't let the GT, USC, UGA thing come between us!

I can not help it that my UGA grad mother had no say and my Ivy League grad dad, who attended UGA law school and then was invited to stay and teach, and who did turn down Harvard Law, insisted I go north. I have mentioned this before, as well. And will continue to as long as stuff is brought up.

I think we can co-exist on this planet. I have mostly fond memories of my early childhood ln Athens and attending games. I have not so fond memories of GA having not so great teams in the 50's and early 60's.
