Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

I’M GLAD THEY CAUGHT the bombers; too many television programs were interrupted because of that. They cut into programs with five minutes left and just repeated themselves over and over.

MAKING A POINT: I think they ought to quit selling pressure cookers since people know how to make a bomb and hurt others. Why are you looking so disgusted? You are trying to do the same thing to the gun laws. People hurt people, not metal pots and guns.

RENALDO RIVERA has been in the prison system for a long time. Are they holding up his execution because of the injection drugs? There are quite a few families who would like to have some closure.

RANT FOR FOOD stamps. We were at Kroger on Colum­bia Road, and this couple had one shopping cart full of soda and over $100 worth of groceries, and they took it out to a brand-new 2013 double cab pickup truck. What is wrong with our system?

IT IS AMAZING HOW Rants & Raves can print complaints about President Obama. He is president. Get over it. Let’s talk about the holes in the street. Over in Columbia County they were fixed for the Masters. We’re regular people, so I guess we don’t get our stuff fixed. Let’s complain about that.

A GIANT RAVE TO Jamie and Walgreens on Wash­ing­ton Road for giving me the best customer service in my life. After not finding the item I needed at any of the Walgreens in our area, she started calling the competitors. She was like Kriss Kringle in Miracle on 34th Street. Amazing. Well done, Jamie.

I HAD OPEN HEART surgery and a pacemaker. If Rich­mond County sheriff’s deputies taze me, I could die and Richmond Coun­ty would have a very large lawsuit on their hands. They should find out a person’s condition before they taze them.

I DIDN’T KNOW YOU needed to have a license to drive a wheelchair in Harlem. They gave a woman a hit-and-run ticket for hitting somebody, but when did an electric wheelchair become a vehicle? Do we have to have a tag, too?

THE WHITE HOUSE WAS a target. You don’t fly your president back to a target. The whole time the president was in the air, he was aware of what was happening on the ground. You always move the commander in chief until you identify the enemy and you know it is safe.

Can Any Of

my Vietnam Veterans Brothers remember reading the Miranda Right every time we pulled the trigger? I don't think any of those in the Middle East battle grounds did also.

Those were enemies of America and the only right they had was to DIE!

"If Rich­mond County

"If Rich­mond County sheriff’s deputies taze me, I could die"

Then I recommend that you not show you butt, get ignorant, and nut up on the police when they tell you to do something. If you do, I have no problem with them popping your circuit breaker.

Is it about --- The need to be the center of attention?

So the Obama House put out a press release now saying he was a target.

I guess 47% of America will need to take off their thinking caps again to buy into that one.

How many times has he injected himself into news stories?
A few quickly come to mind.

T. Martin .
Sandy Hooks - surrounding himself with victims.
Golf outing story leading up to the Masters week.
WH picture of him shooting skeet while pushing gun control... yeah right.
Photo ops with 100's of celebrities.
Vacation photo ops.
and on and on....

It seems we either have a HAM in office, or he has really bad PR people.

"RANT FOR FOOD

"RANT FOR FOOD stamps...........What is wrong with our system?"

Welcome to socialism and redistribution of wealth. Obama meant what he said about "redistribution".....LITERALLY. But it had nothing to do with taxing the rich or creating jobs and an environment that put people to work. He LITERALLY meant taking money out of YOUR pocket and GIVING it to someone else while doing everything possible to kill the economy.

I've heard people say that the "man" had his foot on their neck. With the percentages today, every taxPAYING American has a welfare leech on their back.

We are being played for suckers

A very good article on here by ACE....

Britain’s radical Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary has brazenly urged his followers to get on public benefits there – calling welfare a “jihad-seeker’s allowance.” He ridiculed British taxpayers and their working 9-5, saying living off them makes holy war easier.

It isn't just the bomb that will take us down.....living off our bennies will take us even faster...if you can't see that please see an eye Dr asap...

Quoting

Quoting
"The theoretical probability of inducing VF is significantly lower than 0.0000008, or 1:1,270,000. By comparison, the standard for basic safety and essential performance of medical electrical equipment, EN 60601-1, accepts as satisfactory a VF induction probability of 0.002, or 1:500. Conclusion: The results indicated that TASER devices, while not risk free, have a very low cardiac risk profile when used for suspect temporary incapacitation."

ALSO
Given the needed process of 2 application point, Left upper front chest area and Lower right side chest area as points when using a Defibrillator, it likely would not work.

Note: If a LEO ever has to draw down on me, I would still rather get shocked and wet my pants, than be shot with a 160-180 grain 40 cal
round producing 32,000+ ft./sq In.

Low Information

Voters dominate the day! Background noise like entitled, fairness, rights, et al are playing in the background behind the rants and raves. SSDD.

RANT TO FAMOUS PEOPLE SKIRTING THE LAW

A former UGA Football Player and Future NFL Draft Pick was possession of a stolen firearm and the case was dropped why?

Even though it was under his car seat in a Car he was driving, the Judge ruled there is nothing to link him to the firearm.

I'll have to remember this case for future reference. It is a new way to look at laws.

FUTURE APPLICATIONS:
1. Honestly Officer I did not know that there was 100 pounds of grass under seat. I am just borrowing this car to make a delivery.

2. Honest judge I don't know nothing about that stolen golf cart in my driveway connected to my battery charger and my house wall socket.

3. What stolen car, oh the one I am sitting in. I did not know it was stolen?

4. For a husband or wife. I don't know who that person is in bed with me? I just sleeping over here.

An once again FAME trumps law enforcement, since Mr. Crowell, is considered to be a future TOP NFL draft prospect, he skated.

Either that or UGA must have a strong Alumni in the Judicial system?

But No matter how you cut it or spin it he hangs around criminals, people that have STOLEN FIREARMS

It's getting warmer

I just read an article that stated that anthropologists are thrilled that they are finding ancient artifacts hidden under ice for thousands of years. They are finding these artifacts as the ice melts. What more evidence do you need that the Earth is in a heat/cool cycle? Seems to me that the artifacts aren't going to melt through several feet of ice to end up on the ground.

.
Not really all that amazing. You just put your fingers on the correct keys and type.

The guy is such a pathetic loser and total arrogant incompetent that the words just flow naturally.

Pot holes will always be with us. Thankfully, the Great Wizard of OzBama won't.

Same few people

It's always funny to see how my positive comments make certain people automatically react negatively. I guess some people really do hate Augusta, and don't want anybody else to feel differently.

The Five Guys restaurant coming to South Augusta is on the planning & zoning website for the general public to see. I don't work for the corporate at Five Guys and they control the construction timelines.

The Five Guys didn't even show up on the site until August 2012, and was approved October 2012. People try to make sarcastic comments, but it's only been a few months and definitely not one year.

Approved= October 18, 2012

Today= April 26, 2013

http://appweb.augustaga.gov/planning_zoning/plazid_display.asp?zID=4384

I think somebody is confusing the Five Guys with another development. It's probably hard to keep up because of the number of new restaurants.

"Bush lied." General Sada lied when he said Iraqi wmd were shipped across the border into Syria prior to the war. OR NOT.

Stupid rant

I can see it now. If leos had to inquire as as to the medical status of a person before tazing them, we would have to have a new law making it a criminal offense to lie to a leo about one's medical condition.

No countyman.....we pay REALLY close attention when we told ANY new eating establishment is coming to South Augusta. REALLY REALLY close attention.
