Rants & Raves

UP IN THE FROZEN Tundra, there is perma-frost where the ground never thaws. Down here we are quickly developing a perma-wet.

EDWARD PATRICK IS the new man to come to fix Paine College’s financial mess. He says he wants to “improve the school’s communication network…” Improving communications does not pay bills; it does not stop wasteful spending. It looks like Patrick will take charge and immediately change the subject.

THANKS TO FIRST Baptist Church of North Augusta for the wonderful concert with Sandi Patty, Laurnell Harris and Wayne Watson. Sandi sang some of the old songs we all love so much. Laurnell got carried away with his songs, especially “Amen.” Wayne sang a song that he wrote about “God healing our land,” This brought tears to many eyes. What a wonderful choir you have at First Baptist NA. Keep up the good work. Please bring more artists like this to our area.

RANT TO THE SPORTS Department. Sports are alive and kicking outside of the six teams you profile.

I SEE WHERE JESSIE Jackson Jr. got two and a half years and his wife got one year in jail for misuse of funds and the judge is going to let them serve their time separately so someone will be home with their kids. I can’t remember if a judge has ever done that for another couple.

THE FREE PHONES were given out when Bush was in office, and the government is not responsible.

PLEASE BRING BACK Eugene Robinson and Kathleen Parker, both excellent journalists. Your two Ann Coulter wannabes are just too hateful, mean spirited and non-Christian.

Rant #7

I guess this ranter is referring to Michelle Malkin and Star Parker. Sorry, I do not find either one of them to be non-Christian, nor mean-spirited, nor hateful. I find them to be informative and stimulating. It would be a good thing for the Chronicle to keep Michelle Malkin and Star Parker; and then bring back Eugene Robinson and Kathleen Parker. We will enjoy the new diversity. Oh, yes, please bring back Ann Coulter, also, for good measure. Add another page, if necessary.

Stormwater Fee

R&R commenters need to speak out boldly against the proposed Stormwater Fee proposed for Augusta. Go read Bob Young's guest column and add your outrage:

Stormwater Fee

"... speak out boldly against

Yeah, that worked out so well for us in Columbia County. I think it endearing someone still believes the Commisars care what the residents think.

Ammo is scarce!

This morning I lucked out and was able to buy a case of .22 ammo. I placed the box on the front seat and headed back home, but stopped at a gas station where a drop-dead gorgeous blonde in a short skirt was filling up her car at the next pump. She glanced at the case of ammo, bent over and leaned in my passenger window, and said in a sexy voice, "I'm a big believer in barter, old-timer. Would you be interested in trading sex for ammo?" I thought for a few seconds and asked,

"What kind of ammo 'ya got?"

Watched the interview shows

... today. I wanted to see how the Democratic Propaganda Machine flacks ran interference for The Obamessiah's red line of death and subsequent crayfishing. Predictably, he didn't say that, and if he did, we misunderstood. Funny how WE never are smart enough to understand His Holy pronouncements.

Either that, or the smartest man on the planet needs an interpreter to explain what he MEANT to say.

Laurnell Got Carried Away

"Laurnell got carried away with his songs, especially “Amen.”

I guess the commenter didn't like ole Laurnell and his amens too much.

Good Morning "One Less Illegal Alien" America,

An Illegal Alien has been shot and Killed at Lake Cobalt, Appling, GA. If I hadn't seen it I would never have believed it. It is hard to comprehend that Aliens has ventured this far north of the border. It must have been blind to not see the sign at the dam head saying "Your Are Not Wanted"

One Good thing, we have one less moocher walk this earth.

RANT to false Whiners

Turned on the TV last night to MSNBC "Captured on Camera"

Only to find out it was a Rev. AL special.
He was interviewing various black:
actors, artists, famous sports people and we know what the subject was.

Each was likely worth $20+million and but was still citing how they had been discriminated against over their careers.

While I agree discrimination based only color is totally wrong,

I am sure a lot of people would put up with some discrimination to make $MILLIONS$

The average First Friday

The average First Friday doesn't have any of the crimes you mentioned either.. Even with the average of 10,000 people showing up.

Phones

True the phones were started by Bush. What most people seem to forget is that they were land lines intended for emergencies. Such as women in , or had been in abusive relationships and the threat was still there. It was never intended for anybody that wanted one to get a free (free to them, paid for by me) phone.

We have to get with the pc program..

Due to the climate of political correctness now pervading America, people who live in or are from northeast Alabama, north Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia will no longer be referred to as

'HILLBILLIES'.

You must now refer to them as

Appachlachian Americans

Reposted from the Parenting Editorial

Part of the problem is children having children, welfare and "many of today’s child-producers being selfish, lazy, substance-abusing louts "
I couldn't agree more!! Thank you Bianca for saying what needs to be said!!!! EBT, Section 8, Obama Phones (the term used by most on the program) all need to be restricted. I can understand for elderly, disabled and sick, but not for an able person to constantly entertain "Gentlemen Callers" and have multiple children by multiple sperm donors! When I hear in a public place, a woman bragging about her son who is 24, having 8 children by 6 different women, I know our system is broken.. It's not too hard to surmise that social security is being robbed to pay for these 8 children, because this sperm donor is seen wandering the streets and hanging on the corner with his buds!! Our nanny state is the problem, not the solution

I am damned tired of hearing "It doesn't cost you anything, the government is giving it to us". Just where the heck do you thing the government gets its money? It comes from hard working tax PAYING citizens like me.

Let me tell you a story about some early settlers in the west. After getting caught in an early season blizzard the group of abut 12 had to winter in place. Game was scarce as well as food for the oxen. To avoid starvation of the entire party the oxen were killed and eaten. The group thinking that if all pulled the wagon it may take a little longer but they would still reach their destination. Everything went fine the first couple of weeks. The one of the members twisted his ankle. They put him in the cart and were going to carry him until he was able to pull, hunt for food, and gather nuts and berries. This worked. Until one day one of the party decided he was tired of pulling the cart. He feigned injury so he would not have to work. Soon another member saw what he was doing and thought he could do it too. Then another. Soon all food supplies were eaten since the few that were left couldn't pull the wagon and hunt and forage as well. As a result of no food the entire party perished somewhere in the Rocky Mountains. Had they continued to ALL pull together they would have lived.

Sound familiar... look at what the U.S. of A is doing now. Get off your butts and work. I don't want to loose everything I have WORKED for just because you are to damned lazy to work for yourself.

Lifeline program began in

Lifeline program began in 1996 (who was the President then?). It wasn't until 2008 that the program included cell phones. Darn those pesky facts. Blame Bush all you want.

Lifetime

I enjoy watching those Lifetime movies where the characters have cell phones when they are in the car, but in the homes they have only land-lines. When the stalker cuts the home phone lines, the intended victims suddenly become incommunicado. I guess they forget about the cell phone we saw them using a few scenes before.

Before I run off the Atlanta

... to buy some more ammo, I read this little item, and thought to pass it along. The title says it, pretty much. Can anyone argue these children will grow up to be productive citizens as a opposed to moochers?

cell phones

THE FREE PHONES were given out when Bush was in office, and the government is not responsible.

The part of this rant that is bothering me is the last part, if the government is not responsible, then who the hell else has the power to steal my money and use it to pay for others to have phones?
