YOU KNOW THE WORLD is going to hell in a handbasket when the pope quits!

ROUNDTREE AND MCINTYRE mostly likely knew what the salary was before they ran for office. It’s been so many years, I can’t even remember when state employees got a raise.

IT’S SCARY TO THINK a greater number of people are living off government welfare programs than are paying taxes!

WHEN WILL PEOPLE realize pit bulls are a dangerous animal and need to be controlled at all times?

A BIG RAVE TO Hammond Hill Animal Hospital. Dr. Norman and Karen, you went above and beyond to help us save our puppy. Thank you so much. Bella sends lots of licks!

RANT TO THE JUDGES and laws that favor tenants no matter how much money they owe or how much property they have destroyed. A lot of us have become “involuntary landlords” due to the housing market. Landlords are struggling, too

ISN’T IT JUST LIKE a Republican to put in a motion to protect certain hurtful monuments instead of working on the nitty-gritty stuff like the budget?

RAVE FOR OFFICER Ronnie Phillips for his assistance in recovering my stolen wallet. I was astounded when he called to say he would drive out and deliver it to me. I am sure it was not the most exciting duty of his day but his concern, courtesy and professionalism meant a great deal to me and my mother.

PAINE COLLEGE IS cash-strapped and wants to start a football program. All they need to do is schedule a game with UGA. Paine gets the money needed to start up their program and UGA fans are happy that their Dawgs get another easy win.

I JUST WANT TO thank the lady who paid for my medicine at Rite Aid on Wheeler Road. I had the money at home, but was so sick that morning that I just didn’t think to carry it with me; I will pass the favor on.

HEY, COMMISSIONERS, stop whining. Commission meetings last as long as it takes to take care of business! You were elected to be a commissioner, not just a pretty face! If it takes six hours instead of two, well so what?

WOMEN IN COMBAT? Careful what you wish for.

About Sarge

Cobalt posted on yesterday's R & R that Jim has decided to forego any more chemo, etc. for his cancer that has spread to his bones.

Short of a miracle, we all know the eventual outcome, so PLEASE go see him if you will. It will brighten his day more than you know, especially if you are someone whom he's never met. That is how I got to know him several years ago; he was a regular on the forums and I went to see him in the hospital. I found one of the most magnificent people I've ever met.

IAD ... that's how I met Jim

IAD ... that's how I met Jim too. I went about a month ago to see him in the hospital. Is he back/still on the rehab floor at DH (6th floor)?

His sweet wife has her hands full. I will pray for him <3

Private sector growth!

Groundbreaking of the Holiday Inn Express(former Regency Inn; $6 million) on Broad street is finally here. The investment helps out both Lower Broad and the Olde Town neighborhood. Expect the TEE Center to continue attracting new private developments.

Women in Combat

Just imagine an infantry battalion made up completely of women. Give them enough time to become "synced" and they could defeat any army on the face of the Earth.

OK ladies, go ahead and attack, I can take it.

ok ...about this..rant

YOU KNOW THE WORLD is going to hell in a handbasket when the pope quits!

Yesterday I was in a somewhat heated discussion about the Pope quitting...it seems SOME don't think he should EVER resign....I said the man is 85 years old .....maybe he is really sick & needs a rest...nooooo they say...it shouldn't happen...the lady was French.....what is it ....why would anyone think anyone should muster on in a job if they are unable to do so....don't understand their reasoning on this...sorry.

No I didn't

I didn't see his talk last night...sooo I can't comment on the "quality" or content.......I'm sure the worshipping media will gladly fill in the spaces...as usual.
When some media guys/gals are talking about him I can almost see their eyes glowing ...like a mom with a new baby......ahhhing all over each other...maybe he knows how to put people in a trance.....who knows...

IAD, I'm with you. Not

IAD, I'm with you. Not enough nausea meds on hand for me to watch. My husband watched for both of us and assured me His Royal Hindness, Barack H. Obama promises to cure everything for us from the housing industry to hemorrhoids...
..... if we can just raise the working classes taxes high enough or borrow enough money from China.

Is it just me?

When I click the "Rants & Raves" on the main page it gives me a message "This page cannot be displayed". I guess I can take the hint. In order for me to post here I had to click on R&R in the "Most Discussed".

Gun registration

I would like to hear from some of my pro-gun-rights friends on this.

I am personally torn with the idea of a database tracking ownership of guns. On the one hand, like you, I do not want the government knowing how many and what type of weapons I have; but on the other I see a need for a system of some sort to figure out where the guns come from that land in the hands of people who can't legally purchase them.

What say you on how we devise a system to help thwart the illegal gun trade while protecting our own privacy?

Jim is a good man and a faithful soldier. I wish the best for him and his family during his ordeal. General MacArthur's words come to mind when I think of Jim, "Old soldiers never die, they just fade away". Keep your spirits up my friend.

Is looking a little better this morning, accepting a new antibiotic that has lowered his nausea feeling.

I posted the wrong NR for him, sorry It is (706) 651-5504.
