Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

RANT TO THE North Augusta safety officer for not helping the teen driver get in the correct line at North Augusta High School on Monday. Instead you threatened him with a ticket when he asked for help. You should not be allowed to wear a badge.

IF YOU ARE 20 YEARS old and living at home with a grandmother who has to make your car payment for you so you can drive to a part-time job at a grocery store to support you endless partying, you might be a complete loser.

THE FIRE DEPARTMENT at 2830 Central Ave. has been vacant for quite a while. The grounds need to be maintained.

IT LOOKS LIKE GRU President Ricardo Azziz was trying to slip something by us and got caught and now he has to pay. There is something very sleazy in the way he operates. Anyone above board would have used commercially available transportation for the wedding. I also can’t believe that three cops volunteered for the event.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SET the tone when he canceled the White House tours. Now all of the government agencies that are affected by the sequester are going to go out of their way to make things more difficult for all of us. They are not going to even try to work around things to minimize impacts. That’s called sweet revenge.

WHY IS IT A high school dropout living with their grandmother bumming car payments and smoking dope full time off their part time job salary can get food stamps to trade for whatever but someone with a full time job actually trying gets no help at all?

A FEW QUESTIONS:

1. Why is it that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was wearing a white backpack and the bombs were in black backpacks?

2. If he “ran his brother over and drug him about 30 feet” then why did the news show his brother face down on the ground with no evidence that he had been drug 30 feet? (He would be bloody and scraped up.)

3. If that is what happened then why not show the dash-cam footage?

4. Why have they not released his brother’s autopsy results yet?

5. Why is it that he shot himself in the throat but there was no blood found in the boat? (Why not shoot himself in the head if he was trying to kill himself?)

I am not saying that he is innocent, but they are going to have to answer these questions before they can say he is guilty.

More fodder for the TSD:

The Obamessiah's (snicker) Justice (giggle) Department made certain the FBI did not get their 48 hours with the surviving bomber, making sure a Federal Judge told him to shut up. All this concern about his rights.

No one seems to have noticed the illegal detention of all those American non-terrorist citizens, herded about with their hands over their heads by police and troops. No one has made any comment or taken any action about those same cops and troops illegally searching homes without warrants or even a pretense of probable cause. What of their rights? And how did all that round-up, illegal searches, and effective home arrest work out?

It wasn't until the prisoners were allowed out of their homes that the actual perpetrator was found. Not by some heavily armed stormtrooper in the army of occupation, no- by one citizen "allowed" out to his own driveway.

Other item not making headlines

"Family Research Council Shooter Admits He Used Southern Poverty Law ‘Hate Map’ to Track Down Target."

Funny thing, I watched the evening "news" the last week and not a peep about this. Couldn't be because the victims were a conservative organization?

Nah.

Sure they did. Azziz hasn't ever acted like some petty dictator who would hold it against them and find some way to eliminate their jobs. Right?

Conspiracy Theorist

on the loose. I stopped looking at the conspiracy evidence after realizing it doesn't really matter if an event happened as the Liberal Media reports it or not. The results are the same in terms of constitutional barrage to follow. This President and the left is hellbent on Socialism as a means to redistribute wealth and the restriction of guns to minimize and shorten any attempt at revolution.

Bush Bombed the New Orleans Levee

Did Jesse Ventura write the conspiracy rant about the Boston bombers? Sometimes an open mind doesn't know when to stop opening. Get some Super Glue and close up that corpus callosum.

I'd bet there's another side to the story the North Augusta student told his mother. Too bad the officer doesn't write a rebuttal comment here.

#1: Maybe you shouldn't be

#1: Maybe you shouldn't be allowed to write rants, since you do so without all the facts.

#7: All these questions WILL be answered; at the appropriate time. You're not different than the Aunt claiming we need to show her PROOF and evidence before she will believe it.

Well, the evidence/proof WILL come out at the appropriate time. Law enforcement has no obligation to provide YOU or HER with any proof before making an arrest and charge.

Law enforcement officers have to have probable cause to believe these suspects committed the crime alledged. They present this probable cause/evidence to a judge; who then determines if there is enough probable cause to issue the warrants. If the warrant is issued; the suspects SHOULD turn themselves in and hire an attorney to represent them. No, I don't believe in secrecy in law enforcment; BUT there is a time and place to disclose all the evidence. I don't know of anywhere it's written they have to prove to YOU or the Aunt his guilt before making a charge.

They will build their case stronger and stronger and present the evidence in this case to a jury. Meanwhile, the media and folks like you can enjoy trying to pick every aspect of this case apart; speculating on what may or may not have happened. That's the problem with conspiracy theorists like yourself; you want ALL the evidence presented to YOU, when YOU want it; or you won't believe it. Truth be told, if they did give you all the evidence; YOU probably still wouldn't believe it.

Facts: A bombing has occured, suspects were identified, one suspect is deceased and the other is in custody, the invesigation is still CONTINUING, there will be more facts in the case discovered, rumors and gossip will fly during this case, people will spout their own pathetic opinions without facts.

Questons: Before spouting ignorant conspiracy theories, why not allow the investigation to continue and more facts to be discovered? We are barely two weeks into the investigation; do you believe that is enough time to conduct a DETAILED, thorough investigation? If so, you have no clue how an investigation is conducted; it takes longer than two weeks to investigate local drug houses.

Now, I have absolutely ZERO problem with someone questioning the government because I don't always trust them as well. But some people who lack the slightest resemblence of common sense; should just sit back and be quiet; instead of fueling rumors and gossip!! Rumors and gossip are far more dangerous than anyone realizes. Even the Bible speaks of not being busy bodies. Stick to what you know and not other peoples business.

When you ask questions...

...You are automatically labeled a conspiracy theorist....why is that?!

You actually trust the government's explanation?? There are too many unanswered questions. Just as with Sandy Hook.

Be an independent thinker and not a MSM watcher. If you look at the evidence, you will see that SOMETHING JUST DOESN'T ADD UP.

#falseflag

Ask yourself, in RECENT YEARS, there have been multiple mass killings around the 19 of April. Why?

And Alex Jones is a disinformation agent. He is there to mix truth with lies ......DECEPTION. So is Ventura.

"Now all of the government

"Now all of the government agencies that are affected by the sequester are going to go out of their way to make things more difficult for all of us."

First of all, there wasn't even a reduction in spending. There was a reduction in the scheduled INCREASE in spending. This should not have even amounted to a blip on the radar screen. It should have had no more impact than the increase on payroll taxes had on the average American working family. A little bit of sting but not a crisis. But the government agencies have gotten SO big and have SO much power that they can make things miserable on us in order to punish us for cutting their play money. It's intentional and totally unnecessary. For instance, the FAA could have cut funding for 500 "consultants" instead of furloughing air traffic controllers. A clear case of your government punishing you because you want to control their spending. It's that "oppressive" government someone mentioned long ago. Even rinky dink unelected government bureaucrats can punish us for not bending to their will.

"PRESIDENT OBAMA SET the tone

"PRESIDENT OBAMA SET the tone when he canceled the White House tours."

The canceled tours in my book had nothing to do with the sequester.

He just didn't want a bunch in HIS House and it was a good excuse.

A FEW QUESTIONS: too many?

The 11 most dangerous words in history
"Trust me, I am from the Government and here to help."

In order for the War on Terror to end and we need to address it head on in a NON PC manner.

We are always going to have Nut jobs walking the streets and we have always had terrorists in the USA, even since 1776.

The REAL QUESTION is and continues to be:

Are we willing to give up freedoms that strenghten the power of the Government over our daily lives without recourse, limitation or end?
I am not.

Mr. Franklin said it and it has been quoted many ways.

A person willing to give up freedoms for safety, soon finds he has neither.

Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will have neither and lose both end in revolt.

Now think of the attacks on each the listed Bill of Rights we have seen just since the 1990's:

First Amendment - Freedom of speech, press, religion, peaceable assembly, and to petition the government

Second Amendment - Right for the people to keep and bear arms,

    as well as

to maintain a militia

Fourth Amendment - Protection from unreasonable search and seizure

Fifth Amendment - Due process, double jeopardy, self-incrimination, right of private property

Sixth Amendment - Trial by jury and other rights of the accused

Seventh Amendment - Civil trial by jury

Eighth Amendment - Prohibition of excessive bail, as well as cruel and unusual punishment

Ninth Amendment - Protection of rights not specifically enumerated in the Bill of Rights

Tenth Amendment - Powers of states and people

Answer to this question..

WHY IS IT A high school dropout living with their grandmother bumming car payments and smoking dope full time off their part time job salary can get food stamps to trade for whatever

Because we have lost our everloving mind & give any & all freebies just for asking.....even to outsiders who want to kill us with home made bombs......we bend over backwards just to make it easier for some to kick us in the behind.....but don't worry ...at the rate we have been going in the last 6 years or so... we will soon tumble under the load & crash......even Russia is smarter than we are..
Keep voting in those give a way programs & watch us fall....at least my generation saw the greatness before the dumb bunnies came aboard.

George Jones is dead & I don't fell so good myself

Lyrics in a fav song ...

I've been living a new way
Of life that I love so
But I can see the clouds are gathering
And the storm will wreck our home
For last night he hugged you tightly
And you didn't even shove
This is true for I've been watching
From the window up above

You must have thought that I was sleeping
And I wish that I had been
But it's best to get to know you
And the way your heart can sin
I thought we belong together
And our hearts fit like a glove
But I was wrong for I've been watching
From the window up above

seeyall....have cotton to pick & fields to plow...hahah....anyway I'll be working in the dirt!

Martial Law

Boston was under martial law. 1,000 officers for 2 people?!?

Even their own parents are claiming they were set up and being watched for the last 5 years.

"-The Boston Bomb squad was there at the marathon running bomb drills, just like 9/11, 7/7, Oslo,Sandy Hook, and other false-flags where they "coincidentally" just so happened to be doing terror drills. This "simultaneous drill" excuse has been used again and again in false-flag operations"

Elvis Was Framed

The Elvis impersonator accused of sending ricin to the Senator and Obama was framed it turns out. That poor guy was run through the mud. I saw his pics on national TV making fun of him. They should have known anybody who imitates Elvis wouldn't do something like that.

20 yr old at home?

That is the way it is with many of today's youth, whose parents and other kin provide everything - food, clothing, shelter and other material needs including health insurance to young people who should have been long gone from the nest and taking care of themselves. Sure, I can see an affluent family paying part of the freight for a top producer scholar or other super talented kid worth the investment.
But to let an average kid sit at home and not push him to find his own way in life is to the child and the family a disservice.
Whatever happened to wanting to be free to write one's own ticket? You can't be free if you rely on others.

In my life I've heard conspiracy theories ranging from the Roosevelt being pre-notified about Pearl Harbor, to aliens @ area 51, to Kennedy's assassination, to Bush having the WTC bombed, to Sasquatch, to the Loch Ness Monster.

Wonder why none, NOT ONE have ever borne fruit?

Remember this, conservatives

Back when the Patriot Act was being introduced, all of you Statists were hollering that we needed as much imposition from gov as necessary. "Let the gov spy on me! I ain't doin' nuthin' wrong! We need to fight terrorists!"
Old school, small gov conservatives like myself tried to warn you neocons that you were getting a little less libertarian and a little more liberal, wanting that nanny gov to handle your business.
Nothing good can EVER come out of more gov intrusion. Gov is a cancer and once its seeds are planted, it just grows and grows and grows.
And as we can see clearly more than a decade later, people not only need to police gov, but they need to police themselves and be very, very practical about which "services" that are requested from the fed gov.
Today's Americans are like Europeans . . . constantly asking for more and more strong central gov.
And the politicians are only too happy to promise things that they cannot deliver, and give us more than we really want.
We need to get back to the American Ethos of old - independent, and suspicious of gov.
If we want to continue to beg the fed for more, we may as well do away with state borders, and just have a huge, strong central gov over a single entity state, and throw the idea of a republic in the garbage.
