Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

ONCE AGAIN A great article about obesity in children and once again no change this school year for required physical education classes in Columbia County.

A HUGE RAVE for Carl Reid, Bob Richard’s Toyota service supervisor, for taking care of my vehicle in a timely manner.

DON’T FIRE THE officer; just suspend. What is a 15-year-old boy doing in someone else’s yard at 11 o’clock at night?

SHAME ON BRIAN McDuffie for hitting the boy with his flashlight. He should have shot him with a Taser, and if it killed him, he would still have his job.

I THINK IT’S PRETTY bad that a school as big as GRU can mess up on so many students’ financial aid and yet not take any blame. There are hundreds of students who were handed out the wrong code from the school to put on their financial aid forms.

RANT FOR ALL the boys walking around with their pants down. You would think the wives, sisters, girlfriends or mothers of these boys would tell them: “You look incredibly stupid. Either pull your pants or wear a sign on your forehead that verifies you are totally stupid.”

WILL THE THOMSON police officer please go to a repair facility and ask what the lever on the left side of the steering wheel is used for?

I AM AMAZED AT how men in Augusta want to have a woman take care of them. She works, pays the bills and he acts like the boss. And the women are stupid enough to let that happen.

TO THE RANTER complaining about sportswriter Scott Michaux: If you don’t like articles about the Georgia Bulldogs, don’t read them. That’s like complaining about violence on a particular show on TV. Change the channel.

Lacking anything really fresh to rant about today,

so I am going to RAVE about something.

My sincerest best regards to the AC Bloggers.
NOTHING slips pasted them.
No reporter is safe.
No public official is safe from discussion or discovery either.

We have Sean, who is a understanding, but brutally consistent moderator as our umpire.

This group ensures every possible angle is brought up and debated, torn apart and pieced back together after honest discussions.

It may not be the smoothest process to get to the truth, but it
sure is enjoyable.

Most of all
I look forward to meeting each of you at the next upcoming
AC Blogger Gathering.

No sign needed; the ignorance is clearly on display.

Leave Starbucks alone..

A gun control advocacy group pushing for Starbucks to ban weapons inside its stores is calling for a nationwide boycott against the coffee giant this weekend.

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, which formed in the wake of the Newtown, Conn. killings, is protesting the company's policy of allowing customers to bring guns into restaurants in “open carry” states, where residents are allowed to carry firearms in public.

Just makes me want more coffee!

DHS Employee Tasked With Buying Weapons Has a Website Dedicated to Murdering White People
By Katie Pavlich / 23 August 2013

Ayo Kimathi is an employee at the Department of Homeland Security. His job description? Purchasing ammunition and weapons. He’s also the owner of waronthehorizon.com, a website dedicated to advocating the murder of white people. He’s also a homophobe.

The website was discovered by the Southern Poverty Law Center and has been listed under the Hate Watch page.

By day, Ayo Kimathi works for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as a small business specialist in a unit that buys such items as handcuffs, ammunition and guns.

Off-duty, he calls himself “the Irritated Genie.” He’s a gay-bashing, revenge-seeking black nationalist who advocates on his website – War on the Horizon – the mass murder of whites and the “ethnic cleansing” of “black-skinned Uncle Tom race traitors.”

“Warfare is eminent,” the website declares, “and in order for Black people to survive the 21st century, we are going to have to kill a lot of whites – more than our Christian hearts can possibly count.”

A former supervisor of Kimathi’s at the DHS told Hatewatch, “Everybody in the office is afraid of him.”

“This guy is filled with hate,” the supervisor continued. “People are afraid he will come in with a gun someday and go postal. I am astounded, he’s employed by the federal government, let alone Homeland Security.”

Kimathi was given permission to launch a website he told supervisors would be used to sell concert tickets.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has responded to the site and Kimathi’s DHS employment as “unflippingbelievable.”

So, the Federal Government, er, We The People, are employing someone at the Department of Homeland Security whose side job is running a hate website advocating ethnic cleansing and other despicable acts?! This official is promoting a race war. His fellow employees say they’re “astounded” he is employed by the taxpayers. His side “job” running the “War On the Horizon” website was reportedly approved by supervisors. Really, Fed? Really?

Unflippingbelievable.

Hey, remember when DHS issued an entire report about “right-wing extremists?” Maybe they should issue a report about the black supremacist working in their ammunition department.

Fact or hit piece?

http://realityinthenews.wordpress.com/2012/10/21/valerie-jarrett-the-mus...

A lot has been said — in the press, by the president, by others — about president Obama’s affinity for the Muslim world.

From his promise that “I will stand with them (the Muslims) should the political winds shift in an ugly direction” to his description of the Muslim call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth” to his bowing before the Saudi king, Obama’s actions have convinced many people that the American president is a hidden Muslim, despite his politically-motivated protestations and claims to the contrary.

What hasn’t often been asked but should be, given recent evidence of infiltration by the Muslim Brotherhood in most if not all levels of government, is whether there is a Muslim agent working in the White House to manipulate the president.

One of Obama’s few actions that has shown any willingness to combat Muslim terrorism in defense of the U.S. has been his much-ballyhooed decision to order Navy SEALs to kill Osama bin Laden. But now, U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely has issued a report based on an insider intelligence source that says Obama actually was clueless about the effort to get Osama. Due to his constant opposition to kill Osama, Obama had been kept deliberately out of the loop by some of his senior Cabinet officers concerning the elimination of Bin Laden.

According to the report, Director of Central Intelligence Leon Panetta was the key player who made the call to get bin Laden, with the assistance of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, Adm. Bill Mullen and Gen. David Petraeus. Obama was not told about the effort until the SEAL team was already in Pakistani air space. Like always, the president was on the golf course when he was informed.

The reason for the sneaking about was that Panetta and the other staffers were tired of Obama nixing their efforts to take out the leader of al-Qaida. According to the report, Obama had rejected three kill missions earlier in the year.

THE MUSLIM HANDLER OF BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA
In his book “Leading From Behind,” author Richard Miniter wrote that presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett was the voice who kept urging Obama not to kill bin Laden.

Jarrett is a powerful figure at the White House, an Obama family friend who has an unexplained hold over the president and first lady.

Valerie Jarrett was born in Iran to American parents and lived there until about the age of 5. As a child, she spoke Persian and French. She and her parents spent one year in London, then came back to Chicago. Jarrett’s father-in-law is journalist Vernon Jarrett, who worked closely with Communist Party member and Obama mentor Frank Marshall Davis.

Valerie Jarrett headed Obama’s transition team and personally vetted communist Van Jones and all the other extremists Obama has appointed.

In his book “The Amateur,” Edward Klein points out that Jarrett is the power behind the throne who sits in on every meeting, decides who gets to see the president and monitors who is loyal to Obama and who needs to be gotten rid of. The president reportedly doesn’t make a move without her, and she was the single roadblock to getting bin Laden.

Her religious leanings are not clear. The media either have not asked or have not gotten an answer. Many have speculated and others have denied that she, like Obama, is a closet Muslim.

What is clear is that she not only has communist contacts but she is a point man for the Administration in meetings with Muslim activists.

Interestingly enough, Jarrett was named Iranian of the Day in August 2008 by Iranian.com.

She has been associated with the Obamas since their early days in Chicago, and those familiar with her background say that she provided crucial financial backing that helped Obama raise his national profile.

Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, has a chief aide who is connected to the Muslim Brotherhood in Huma Abedeen. Could Obama’s chief adviser, the woman who has been described as co-president, be a Muslim ringer as well?

The brief article on Iranian.com says Jarrett is Shirazi, but it is unclear whether the writer means that she was born in Shiraz, Iran, or that she is a member of the Swahili subgroup called Shirazi. The article calls her “African-American and Chicago royalty.” Links in the article to further information go to a mere blank page.

It is in this way that to a large extent, the woman pulling the strings at the White House is as much a mystery as the president himself.

"they are just showing their best assets!"

Not only are they showing off their assets but also showing what they think with!

Brian McDuffie has history as an unreliable officer and just took care of his career by doing something stupid. Law enforcement does not need his type to tarnish the rest of a great group of men and women.

Keeping With the Theme Today

Well, we're big rock star commenters
We've got golden fingers
And we're loved everywhere we go
We sing about beauty and we sing about truth…
But the thrill we’ve never known
Is the thrill when you get your picture
On the cover of the Augusta Chronicle
Wanna see my picture on the cover
Wanna buy five copies for my mother
Wanna see my smilin' face
On the cover of the Augusta Chronicle

"Most Discussed"

I guess I don't know how to count.....

Man charged with rape, molestation with 22 comments removed by ones that have 7-8-12-18 and R&R with 19.

Someone should be educated on what "Most Discussed" means!

In Re: Baggy Pants

You guys have it all wrong. Al Sharpton has explained it this way, referencing the MLK speech from 50 years ago:

“Dreams are for those who won’t accept reality. So they dream about what is not there, but will make it happen,” Sharpton said. “We must give us our young people dreams again. You build jails, closed schools and break their dream and you wonder why they are wearing saggy pants.”

For more of his enlightening statements, follow this link: http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/Residents-Rally-for-Statehood-Ma...

It's all YOUR FAULT! When will YOU evil working people, those of you that went to college, that don't do drugs and lay around all day, realize that???

http://chronicle.augusta.com/news/metro/2013-08-23/rants-raves#comment-1... Per CobaltGeorge post at 9:30 I cant believe a gentleman that espouses openly those beliefs would be employed by Homeland Security. That has to be the most openly Racist website I've ever seen, admittedly I don't seek out such sites but I will check out sources if cited. With that set of core beliefs he is a antisocial time bomb .

And now, he's sitting at home, on administrative leave, sitting around in his underwear, updating his hate blog.

Meanwhile, you're paying his for his rent, booze and all his other expenses.
