Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

MARK SANFORD WINS a congressional seat in S.C. That is hard to believe! What about the GOP’s so- called “family values”? I guess in South Carolina, as long as you are conservative, Charles Manson could get elected …

RANT TO THE person who compares military fatalities to fatalities of those in the embassies. Embassies are under the State Department, not the Department of Defense. That should give you a clue that they have different functions and the expected safety of the personnel is different. Shame on the Obama administration for lying about the death of those in Benghazi!

WHY IS SCOTT DEAN still in jail? The daughter recanted months ago and he is still in prison?

I PLACE A CALL TO the Georgia Department of Labor at 9 a.m. just to ask a question, and the woman who answered the phone had the snottiest disposition ever! I greeted her with a pleasant, “Good morning,” and she promptly grunted in return as her phone attitude got worse when I asked my questions. It’s often the same when visiting the office in person. One would think having a job would make one a bit more pleasant. In addition, customer service skills should be required, and … Why was she so angry at 9 a.m.?

CONGRATULATIONS TO the voters in South Caro­lina who knowingly put a reptile in office. Folks, if he slithers around like a snake, acts like a snake, he is, in fact, a snake.

NOW THAT THE real estate market is picking up, I have a favor to ask of real estate persons and mortgage lenders: PU-LEEEZE don’t sell homes and lend money to those who can’t afford to buy it and maintain it. There are too many homes in the neighborhoods which have roofs needing repair, sheets for window drapes and yards which look like a waste disposal site as well as homes abandoned after a short time after moving in. I know you get a large bonus from selling a home, but be sensitive to the folks in established neighborhoods.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN things fall to pieces at home? What Obama does is change the subject and run to Mexico.

EVERYBODY INVOLVED in Syria is anti-American, anti-Israel and anti-civilization. So, no matter whom Obama arms in the Syrian fight, he’ll be arming our enemies.

Permission Granted....and anybody else that wants to describe the {filtered word} that is destroying America from within. "It" is worst than the hoddies that walk the streets of Augusta except it wares a suit and has his pants above the crack.

It was a couple of days after

It was a couple of days after Benghazi when I figured out what had happened and made a comment on the Chronicle of, "Watch the cover-up begin. This will be fun."

So here is my dumb butt understanding exactly what had happened when the government that spends billions on intelligence doesn't get the truth for months. We have the "senior leadership of the State Department" leading the public misinformation for weeks after the attack. It smells. The State Department and White House wanted to downplay it all....OBVIOUSLY.

Every now and then in my work

Every now and then in my work life I encounter a sychophantic person who likes nothing more than praising a superior in public. I also hear similar oleaginous praises on the air and in print at times. If anyone thinks such false admiration from a subordinate helps them in anyway, I smile.

At one time

This place made me think a lot---even look up additional info just to post on here.....but lately we seem to be in constant debates about the # of people here---& what county has the best ANYTHING...the # of black leaders versus white....countyman did YOU cause this ruckus?? I do remember 2 very smart wise guys on here....even though they were baddd boys at times...they were clever as hell....& funny......but they were bounced off & some have passed away...
The best posters usually walk a thin line of getting tossed each & every day...heheh....
I think I will open a cool bud lite & sit on my deck....finish my paper.:)

SeenIt, don't make me feel

SeenIt, don't make me feel inadequate. I try my best to keep y'all smiling and thinking...or mad at me. I usually accomplish one of those goals.

"I guess in South Carolina, as long as you are

.
Yeah, they're learning all of Bill Clinton's tricks.

At least in this case the dirt bag's wife had the class to divorce him.

"Folks, if he slithers around like a snake, acts

That's no way to talk about Ted Kennedy. He can't defend himself now. But you are right, like Clinton, he was a public serpent.
