Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

GOOD FOR YOU, President Shirley Strum Kenny! You are a voice of sanity in a sea of change, egos and dirty dealings. It’s refreshing to find a person like you who is not afraid to speak her mind. Emperor Azziz needs to wake up to the fact that not everything is wonderful in GRUland.

OBAMA IS A DISASTER, but so were Bush I, Clinton and Bush II. I bet that confuses all you Obama supporters.

INSTEAD OF THAT movie studio being built in Effingham County, why couldn’t it be built in Augusta? All those people being paid to bring stuff to Augusta are being paid for nothing.

RANT TO RUDE school receptionists/secretaries. A bigger rant to headmasters and principals who tolerate the rudeness. Parents trust you to have employees who all lead and teach by example. If school officials are worried about enrollment, look at who answers your phone and greets your guests.

I WAS SUPPORTING Rand Paul for president in 2016, but now that he is for amnesty for 20 million illegal aliens I won’t be supporting him ever again for anything.

RANT TO THE narrow-minded voters who fail to see the bigger picture, America. We either stand up and take our country back or we sit down, shut up and take what’s coming to us for not doing so.

WHEN GROWING UP, I was always told that the truth might hurt. Well, therein lies the problem with Dr. Azziz. If you don’t tell the truth, it can’t hurt.

I VISITED BARNEY’S Pharmacy on Peach Orchard Road for the first time and I will take my business there. The clerks up front were so friendly and made us feel welcome. Kudos to Barney’s for having such friendly people working up front.

NASCAR NEEDS more short tracks and needs to get away from the West Coast. Stock car racing started in the South and needs to stay here. Forever Junior Nationals.

THE KILLINGS IN prison won’t stop until the government realizes that as long as they play games with prisoners, the thugs will keep trying worse things. How do you stop phone smuggling into prisons? By being thorough and extremely tough on everybody.

I KNOW THOSE hoboes will be glad to see Augusta in their rearview. I just hope they get their dogs back. More than once things have gone bad at the pound.

Spay - Neuter

If you read this in time, watch Channel 6 News tonight at 11:00. The six o’clock newscast had a story about the S.C. legislature discussing a bill to outlaw those "low-cost" spay-neuter clinics from offering any other services. When a a reporter questioned the single legislator who is pushing the bill, he said it was aimed at a single low-cost provider in the midlands of S.C.

There is a danger in passing laws designed to address small things. The unintended consequences of the laws turn our lives into bigger problems.

It's kind of like gun control legislation. Just enforce laws you have rather than making new ones on the fly.

What professional organization do you think put the legislator in question up to introducing the bill that severely restricts low-cost spay-neuter clinics into the legislative soup?

LL, here are both sides of the issue. It appears the vets are complaining about the free shelters providing vet services that compete with private vet clinics.

Taxpayer subsidized veternary care

Our nation is doomed.

If these organizations receive government assistance to offer free cat declawing, the end is near.

I think the ones we have elected to support the saving of America will be more like "sit down, shut up and take what’s coming to us for not doing so."

The Ducks want more money...:)

The Robertson family is reportedly demanding $200,000 episode from A&E and Gurney Productions, a substantial raise from their current pay. The salary bump would make sense given the show's success in the ratings. "Duck Dynasty" has become A&E's most popular show and the most-watched reality show on cable. Its Season 3 premiere had 8.6 million viewers and a massive 4.0 rating in the coveted 18-49 demographic.

They are worth it.....give it to them...

Their privacy is gone

The Duck Men have been very private type guys....living the outdoors type life....fishing-hunting-running & ripping....now all of that has gone with the wind...you see they have paid a high price in life with fame...now everywhere they go someone will recognize them & want some attention...

Kinda reminds me of this place too.....now we are known to the masses..they know our likes--habits--good points & bad.....& some know just how to reach us.....if we are missing they want to know why....it is almost like being a Duck on that program....sorta-kinda....sooo what I'm getting at....shouldn't we ask for more money too?? This $5000.00 a month just doesn't get it anymore & we know dang well AC can afford more...:)

Take our Country Back?

It means getting rid of the Politicians who are only there to line their pockets and create a cushy position for themselves should their huddled masses realize how worthless they are and vote them out of office. It means getting back to our Constitution without all the "Opinions" of what someone meant 250 years ago. It means having a government, by the people and for the people(not just the person in office). It means having a Commander in Chief who works for the people instead of by Proclamation or Directive or Presidential Order. It means that common sense, rather than lawyers rule our society as the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights spell out. It means the Freedoms that this country was founded on, rather than all the self serving restrictions being placed upon us daily. Now that being said, I'll turn off the patriotic music and step down off my stump. NEXT!!

Quick Good Morning "God Bless" America

Update on Sarge. He has received his last radiation treatment for the tumors behind his right leg. The pain has subsided considerably. His lack of ability to eat for over 4 months was due to numerous ulcers in his digestive track. That has been treated and now is consuming solid foods. The main goal now is to get him to a point of being able to stand and motivate. I don't have a room or tele # at this time but will provide it asap.

He sure misses you all and really appreciate any visit or calls.

Thanks coldbeer

Our freedom came at a high price...very few young folks even have a clue how much our fore fathers have paid in blood-sweat -tears....they are living on the largess & the fruits of their labor....
I wish some would just take the time to read the Bill of Rights....listen to America the Beautiful....read about the Wars that have been fought for the freedom they enjoy today....

Augusta does just fine without a Cheescake Factory:
"The Cheesecake Factory has earned the title of America's Worst Restaurant for the 4th year running. No establishment better represents the confluence of factors that have saddled America with an ever-worsening obesity crisis."

Those that would even consider it, or have that done along with anyone that would perform such an act should be classified in a background check as totally mentally ill. In the eyes of God and many intellegent humans, they have already committed murder and should be trialed as a death penalty case.
