Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

I DREAD THE Super Bowl every year. When it is over that means there are no good sports until spring training. Basketball and hockey are lame, lame, lame.

YAY FOR FOX getting rid of Sarah Palin. Now to get Bristol and baby daddy off, too. Then we can start evicting the Kardashians from TV, and news media and clean up the atmosphere and morals more.

THIS IS A RAVE for the person who found my car keys at Augusta Mall. Thank you so much and God bless you.

I FOUND IT ODD THAT President Obama referenced Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in his inauguration address. King was a Republican; he was against abortion; he was pro-Constitution; and he believed in personal responsibility for actions. Obama isn’t like King in any of these areas.

PEOPLE WHO GET welfare and other free services should be asked to clean up paper and other trash in the streets. I hope 15th Street is cleaned up before the Masters because it looks terrible.

I WAS TROUBLED when I heard that Beyonce was lip-syncing. They ought to make it illegal or at least let the people know that you are lip-synching.

THE COMMERCIAL says there is a gun and knife show … in downtown Augusta. I don’t understand. What is wrong with this picture?

I AM SO GLAD TO SEE that Sloane Stephens beat Serena Williams. Especially because of her attitude on the court because of a missed play. It is time our young people quit looking to people like that and look to parents as role models instead of these stars that have nasty attitudes.

MICHELLE OBAMA looked beautiful. I don’t care for the bangs, but her fashions are absolutely beautiful and she wears them a little bit below the knee, as women should. I don’t like the knee showing.

AS I WATCHED THE inauguration speech, I kept thinking, “Where is our nation going, and why are we in this handbasket?”

JAN. 21 MARKED the official death of objective, unbiased journalism. The reporters from the mainline media giggled and blabbered like a bunch of tweens at a Bieber concert while covering the inauguration.

RANT TO LOWELL Greenbaum for again craftily pointing the finger of shame so richly deserved by self-serving Democrats for adding billions of unrelated, pork-filled dollars to the Hurricane Sandy rescue bill at Republicans for rejecting it, accusing them of insensitivity. Politics, far and away, outstrips prostitution for the most odious profession award, and Democrats are best at it.

MARK IT DOWN: When a Democrat uses the phrase “common sense solutions,” the solutions offered will not make any sense.

OBAMACARE IS GOING to get really bad.

Very different situation

"I noticed the Sheriff in Alabama where the kid was held hostage in the underground bunker thanking the press for holding back on info since the crazy kidnapper had access to TV and radio."

Ther are times for the press to respect blackouts and times where it is not an issue. In Alabama it was an ongoing, dangerous situation where they were trying to save a little boy's life.

From what I've seen so far, Sheriff Roundtree is just being a control freak without any basis for his choking off details of LE activity other than a wee-weeing contest with local press.

Maria Sheffield is good, but it's quite a step up for her after losing the Congressional race. It may come down to Handel against Broun. Wouldn't it be something if Lee Anderson would run again?

Really, I am curious what the FCC rules are for obscenities. Isn't cursing on the radio, grounds for major fines or loss of license?

Seven Words

No, RM, it's only those seven words made famous in a comedy monologue by George Carlin. Austin avoids those.

Last Rant..."OBAMACARE IS GOING to get really bad."

People don't realize just how bad.

Somebody once said something like 'nothing is so expensive as that which is free.'

"Free healthcare" for all is going to ruin many peoples' lives.

The American voters were warned, but re-elected him anyway.

I'm learning lots today. There are only 7 words that are obscene and personel hearings can only be held about someone who has a defined days, weeks, months, years of time on the job. Glad I learned whom I should pick on.

WGAC Obscenities

But back to the words said yesterday on the air on WGAC when THAT person lost it on serveral occasions and if the words were not obscenities? They sure sounded like them to me. Is it okay to say certain words? I don't know? What will the penalty be for these obscenities if any? Maybe Austin can comment?

I still refuse to believe that's right. It just doesn't look right. If you ever see me spell it right you know I've used a spell check and don't really believe it.

Anyone writing a letter to WGAC Management complaining about Austin Rhodes is totally wasting their time. The BBC, they LIKE him, they LOVE him, they can't get enough of him.

The support of some people isn't that important. Dogs barking in the wind blowing the other way.

I agree if any obscenities were aired, the proper protest would be with the FCC.

River, I think that's a very true statement and never has it been more true, than here. However, I don't think it really applies to the owners at WGAC and I'm sure you don't seriously either.

I really don't care who the complaints apply to. Not my problem. I only know that obscenity complaints such as I heard should be given to the FCC. Beats me about the owners and whether they want to hear them or not. That's up to them.

Covered

You all have covered the R&Rs well today!

Open Curtian, say it ain't so

River - nothing short of being caught with a dead girl or a live boy will change that 3 hour slot on the radio. Not outside the realm of possibility, though.

Could Cobalt George and Open Curtain be the same person? They never seem to post at the same time and alternate "resigning" from these pages.

Seenit - Thanks for the tell tell signs of oldness. I already wear my trousers without a belt about one day a week cause I have already walked downstairs from the bedroom before realizing I forgot it

As for Shrimp's promise yesterday....bet he had his fingers crossed when he typed that.

B-A-P as described by

B-A-P as described by Rebellious is not considered obscene anymore. There is very little that you can't get by with these days; variations of eff and #2 body function being a couple of exceptions.

1 of 2 last comments and I am out of here.

1st of all I won't lie ...

I CALLED WGAC yesterday and asked to speak with the station manager
but he and the program director were both out. So I asked the secretary to ask Austin to ease up, I had kids in the house.

I also said I felt he was out of line and if he could not control himself I could call the FCC next. Within 8 mins Austin comes back from break and repeats the phrase yet again then remarks about caring less about my call.

Austin lost it, he went over the top, and the caller won, it is that simple.
Not because the caller was, far from it, because Austin blew a fuse and failed to make proper decorum amends, that is what we will remember.

If only Austin had the Grace and finesse of Harley Drew, or the late great Buddy Carr, Candy Karmical, Jimmy J. or even Steve York, he might go state or national.

Right after his blown fuse, I am sure 1 or 2 advertisers are wondering if they this type outburst associated with their products or company reputation in the near future and upcoming Masters Promo's

You cant be sure if he means charades, or some variation of doctor. :)

Obama plans to regulate and ban some guns. Yet we see his drones have killed hundreds of innocent children in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Now we see his justification for murdering more American citizens without due process. You happen to know a terrorist-bye,bye. So the question is:WHO WILL REGULATE OR BAN OBAMA???????
