Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

IN THE PHOTO OF Gretchen Caughman in the Metro section of The Chronicle, the university identification on the back wall lacked the name Augusta. It looks like to me that the con game continues! Let’s never forget that the agreement was to add Augusta to the university name.

I WILL NEVER understand how my great-grandfather lived to be 97 without all of these so-called vitamins and supplements. No flu shots, no pills; just good, clean living.

RANT TO THE the Board of Elections and The Augusta Chronicle. In Hephzibah, I saw a lady vote for herself and then said she needed to vote for her daughter, too, since she was at work. The lady said it’s OK. I know her daughter, and that lady voted twice. I complained about it then and nobody did anything about it.

RAVE FOR SHERIFF ROUNDTREE. When a new sheriff is elected, they have the right to demote or promote who they want. Each sheriff who comes in has that right.

THE REASON THE DEER population is down in recent years is the coyote population is up.

IF EVERYONE WORKED as hard as the young man advertising pizza on the corner of Alexander Drive and Washington Road on Sunday mornings, the world would be a better place!

RANT TO THE GIRL sitting at the drive-thru at Bojangles’ on Walton Way searching through your car for what looked like change to finish paying for your order. After almost 15 minutes, you finally get it paid and pull up to the exit only to sit there searching your car again for something? I had to honk at you to go, and thanks to you, got my daughter to school late! Next time, pull over! If you had been considerate and moved up so others could have gone, I’d have been happy to pay for your food!

UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA professor Keith Poole studies congressional voting trends. He recently stated that Repub­licans are now more conservative than they’ve been in 100 years, especially in the House, which is dominated by the GOP’s “hell no caucus.” No wonder hardly anything gets done in Congress these days.

Just for you RM

Even if you are worn out & contrite..:)

Do Short Skirts Really Mean Better Times?

The old maxim was when women's hemlines rose, so did the economy.
So now that miniskirts are hot new items for spring, are the economy and stock market set to skyrocket as well? Not likely, quite a few experts say's that.One of the reason may be that fashion used to be much more of an indicator of economic trends and also that the casual look that's become so popular in U.S. workplaces has diminished fashion's importance in indicating trends. But why a theory with legs? Supporting the premise was that the cost and availability of fabrics have historically affected the hemline of skirts, say economists. In boom times, when producers typically charge more for their yarn or textiles, designers would make skirts shorter to cut costs. Often designers felt that they could maybe save 20 percent of their material costs by creating new styles

Sarah Palin--crazy like a fox..

Sarah Palin's time at Fox News is over, and so is her $1 million-per-year salary. Now, a university study has chronicled just exactly how much the former vice presidential candidate was making when she did each interview on the network.

The University of Minnesota's Eric Ostermeier tallied up all of the words Palin uttered during her three years on Fox News, and divided them by the $3 million she racked up over that time. His conclusion:

A Smart Politics review of the more than 150 FOX broadcasts in which Sarah Palin appeared as a paid commentator from 2010 through 2012 finds that she spoke 189,221 words on air during this span, for an average pay rate of $15.85 per word.

A well rehearsed performance.

My take on H&O...A well rehearsed performance. Nothing accomplished, nothing done...boring, hee hee, look at me....they both like an audience...those ego things, ya know.

Yes, allhans, and the

Yes, allhans, and the unmitigated gall of that woman to say she now identifies with our troops who have suffered head injuries.

Reminds me of the time she claimed to have run from enemy fire on a trip abroad as First Lady. Of course, the Obama group called her out on it and she had to tuck her chin and admit she lied.

Now the two liars occupy the same camp.

".... $15.85 per word."

I wonder how many other paid commentators have been similarly examined by Eric Ostermeier and "Smart Politics?" Surely there have been many, right? No way they'd just pick Sarah Palin out of the clear blue sky. Surely this isn't an effort to slime Palin, or FoxNews (Fair and Balanced), is it?

My take? Whatever they paid her she was worth it.

How about the hypocricy of this?

The first moo cow has the biggest staff and has taken outlandishly expensive trips and vacations or sent her children on them at taxpayers' expense and now obama has the audacity of hope to ask for a salary for her.

Are those people grounded in any sense of reality?

"All this talk

... makes me want to find a village to rape and pillage."

Remember, pillage, then burn- in that order; chicks dig firelight.

Haha...guarantee you that's a metaphor (or is it a simile) you've never seen anywhere else.
