Rants & Raves

ALL LAWS SHOULD be abolished. Criminals don’t abide by them anyway.

THIS IS A RAVE and rant. A rave to Grovetown Track and Field Team for qualifying for state. Great Job!!! A rant to Grovetown High School. Hardly anyone was there to support the students during the regional competition.

EVERY TIME I SEE one of the following on the news, I just shake my head – Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. These folks are leaders of the Democratic Party and of our country. If you tried, I don’t think you could come up with four more incompetent people. I bet you money no other country in the entire world has assembled as many clueless “leaders” as these four.

RAVES TO STEVE CRAWFORD and his dogged pursuit of the truth in the latest Azziz debacle. Feels like Watergate. GRUgate anyone? Keep up the good work, Steve.

YOU KNOW WHAT’S wrong in the world today? Too many people care what Ryan Lochte would do.

AZZIZ SAID IT costs $416. Now leave him alone. It costs what he SAYS it costs and not a penny more!

WHY CAN’T WE LEARN to share our feelings, care for one another, love each other, hold hand, hug necks and be friends? I love you.

THE HARLEM POLICE stop some of the people who need to be stopped instead of worrying about people who don’t need to be. Why don’t they do the job they are supposed to do instead of picking on people?

RANT TO THE people who think President Obama runs the show. There is this thing called Congress. Did you forget about George W. Bush?

RANTS TO ALL THOSE so-called Christians who go to church on Sunday but look down on their neighbors and won’t give them a helping hand.

THE TERRORISTS’ GREATEST weapon is fear. When you have faith, hope and charity given by our living God’s Spirit, you can overcome fear every day.

RANT TO THE DRIVERS on Oak Springs Drive. You need to slow down before you hit these cats and dogs or these little boys playing in their driveway.

YOU CANNOT GET A job at McDonald’s without having a background check. If you are out of prison and trying to keep straight, you can’t get a job anywhere in this state.

This ain't doing well already.

Picked up the paper and there's a headline, "Obama in Mexico for listening tour." Put the paper down, will buy another when it says doing the same in this country. So I turned on the tv...

First up was a commercial that said "To dangerously remove trees..." Hunh? I think I'd prefer my trees safely removed, so I shut it off and took a walk.

Only to look at the pedestrian crosswalk being installed for umpty-ump dollars at the intersection of Wrightsboro and Robinson Avenue. Lived here since 1977 and never seen anyone use that intersection to cross -- nothing there. Even better, none of the four roads that intersect have sidewalks on either side to reach the intersection. Wonder whose cousin is the contractor for that bit 'o usless crap?

"THE HARLEM POLICE stop some of the people who need to be stopped instead of worrying about people who don’t need to be."

Did the Terrorists Win?

The editorial the other day about the overreaction of the Boston police with the house-to-house warrantless searches made me think of what did the terrorists want from their actions? Although three people were killed it was not about killing the most people, but creating the most publicity they could generate. Thus the Boston Marathon at the finish line, on camera. Random murders in the suburbs wouldn’t have worked. They wanted turmoil to result from the bombs. With the fear and resultant unconstitutional searches while shutting down the city, I’d have to say they got exactly what they planned due to the overreaction. Their accounts were on the news 24 hours a day.

Overreaction?

Maybe some. But, the possibility of more bombs throughout the city was real. As far as news coverage, I hope we never reach the point where this becomes so routine that it doesn't warrent major coverage.

JTF, Palace Malice?

JTF, what do you think of the Aiken horse's chances in the Derby today? The odds have improved to 20-1 which is better than lots of horses in the field. They will probably have rain today.

Can't say, don't follow the ponies much. It would be nice to see an Aiken horse win. So, I hope it happens.

TV programming

I noted "V for Vengeance" has been on multiple US channels and the BBC this month.

Is it a subtle hint about our current Government leaders?

For the Ranter

For the Ranter that posted "RANTS TO ALL THOSE so-called Christians who go to church on Sunday but look down on their neighbors and won’t give them a helping hand."

Is it possible that the Christian HAS given the neighbor a helping hand numerous of times and wants the neighbor to help himself and quit being a sponge?

Look at the pics I sent yall & RM

Boston over reaction....nope...don't think so...

Bombs could have been placed through out the city...they didn't know...the ONLY reason so many lived is because of the fast responders....we were protected from the gore & real scene,....too bad....we NEED to see the truth & how stupid we are.........for all we know some of our own money helped buy the dang ingredients.

First responders and unhurt bystanders

Were amazing - we Americans are amazing - selfless. Terrorists are just (ugly word) cowards.

Good news..WalMart will bring USA products back!

Walmart doesn’t make anything. But the giant retailer could play a part in the manufacturing rebound that is taking place in the U.S. with its promise to buy $50 billion more U.S. made goods over the next decade for its Walmart and Sam’s Club stores. It’s a bit ironic, given Walmart’s vast global sourcing organization. But the same forces that are making the U.S. a more hospitable place for manufacturing —higher shipping costs and wage rates overseas among them—have prompted the company to reevaluate its sourcing on a variety of products. “This is a commitment around manufacturing and more economic renewal. We see it as a critical issue for us in the American economy,” says Duncan Mac Naughton chief merchandising and marketing officer for Walmart U.S.

Any large business should

Any large business should rethink where they purchase their products especially if they come from one of the countries like iran, iraq, pakistan or the like. Our borders should also be closed to immigration from those countries and all who have terrorist ties. If they say that is unfair, just remind them that they are unfair to our people and live in a country that has not caught up from the 12th century.

They Call Them "Terrorists".....

...because they want to produce terror. They want to use terror as a weapon to disrupt our lives, scare the bejesus out of everybody, and freeze our economic activity, degrade our social and political infrastructure, and ultimately take us down.

These islamic terrorists have a long term goal which they believe is their destiny. World domination. Sharia law everywhere. All living souls "believers" in Islam. There is no place in that world for Christians, Jews, or any other mindset. Islam is not simply a religion, it is a way of life.

You're Right, JRC....

....and what makes it worse is that most Americans are ignorant of what's happening, or in denial. Political Correctness is impeding the dissemination of information and the fear of being called a "bigot" keeps people from seeking the truth, or even talking about it.

The wolf is at the door.

I Doubt Most Will Be Interested...

....in the link here, but you should be. It's an example of what's happening in our society as Political Correctness and weak leadership overcomes even our military infrastructure to the peril of us all.

Grand pa how old are you?I

Grand pa how old are you?

I am old enough to remember when Walmart & Roses closed on Sundays's and Sam Walmart proudly displayed signs.

Made in the USA.

Wow GrandPa, what was the USA?

Oh, that was a good place, just before Comrade Obama became our Life leader and changed the Name to:

Federation of Unity. (FU)

GrandPa, are we permitted to use the word USA outside the house?

Better not dear, better not.

Joe Wilson

Thanks for coming to the area in support pf SRNS employees but I didn't hear you say anything. The SC State Senator gave us a number to get in touch with OMB. Please do something besides talk about the issue, fix it! Funny how you folks in DC could fix air-traffic controllers but site employees hardly get any attention. You, Lindsey and the worthless Georgia delegation need to get off your butt and do something!
