Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

THE POTENTIAL FEDERAL shutdown and President Obama’s warning of “economic chaos” highlight both parties’ standard action concerning establishing the federal budget. Since the start of the fiscal year was changed, Congress and our leaders have relied on this tactic. Their continued reluctance to find common ground for the betterment of this country had resulted in closure of federal offices, loss of jobs, higher taxes and a damaged economy.

RANT FOR ALL you parents at Martinez Elementary School; you are turning left, and it says no left turn. You are an accident waiting to happen. Please try to protect our children.

BIG RAVE TO the staff of the North Augusta Recreation Department, the North Augusta Police and the nurse on duty at 11 a.m. Sept. 10. My wife had a seizure while working out, and they did everything in a very professional way. They make North Augusta a great place to be.

DOES ONE LOSE all common sense by joining the Democrat Party, or does one join the Democrat Party because he has no common sense to start with?

SUPER RAVES FOR Brian Crane, the writer/illustrator for the comic strip Pickles. This is, without a doubt, the funniest strip I have ever followed. Hats off to this man who keeps us laughing at the beginning of each day.

WHO CARES WHICH federal bozo started giving out free phones and other goodies? The point is, this present administration could stop this abysmal practice, which just enables moochers to continue their mooching ways, but they don’t. It’s funny how this administration has no trouble doing away with previous administration rules and regulations, but this particular one they won’t touch with a 40-foot handle. All to get more votes in 2016. Sickening.

SENTINEL OFFENDER Services was found guilty by our courts. Hurray for Jack Long, attorney, for taking them on in our legal system. Sentinel took advantage of those trying to rise above their legal problems, which is like putting a foot on someone’s back when they are already down, and yet Richmond County renewed their contract. Something is really wrong with this picture.

ALL THE AMERICAN people do is watch baseball and football. They haven’t got their heads screwed on. We need to get rid of what’s in Washington, D.C.

Some standard wording and lies we will hear over the duration.

The Republican Shutdown is racist.

Children will starve because of the The Republican Shutdown.

The Republican Shutdown is a WAR ON WOMEN,
The Republican Shutdown is a WAR ON Children,
The Republican Shutdown is a WAR ON Minorities,
The Republican Shutdown is a WAR ON the elderly.

People will have no Water, food, gas, power etc...
because of The Republican Shutdown.

Old people won't get their Social Security checks.

The Republican Shutdown does not allow EBT distributions.

No Free Obama stuff during the The Republican Shutdown.

Harry Reid and Barack Obama don't want a shutdown.

The Shutdown is all The Republicans fault.

America wants Obamacare.

Obamacare will help grow jobs.

You can keep your doctor.

The Republicans are anti-Black, asian, mexican etc....

The Republican Shutdown will kill Gays that need Obamacare for treatment.

Nothing will change, just 15 million people will get coverage they did not have before.

=--------------------------------=

There are likely dozens, if not dozen upon dozen more of such pre-organized lies waiting to be used.

But voters know they have been sold a SACK OF MANURE that won't grown nothing but bigger government, if Obamacare is fully enacted.

Voters know that Senate Democrats are NOT Voting the Will of the people. They voting a party line that is direct conflict with the Voters and just about very professional and accredited poll taken.

Yes there are some voters that still want it, according to a CNN poll 17% still want Obamacare as it is. But that means 83% do not want it like it is. So 17% just cannot admit the overwhelming evidence happening all around them. The Senate Democrats cannot get re-elected on 17%. So they have either cowtow to Obama and Reid or split and get re-elected.

So while the So Called Peace Loving and understanding Liberals are spreading their organized HATE SPEECHES, attacking Republicans, yelling racist remarks and threatening their families and their staff member families. All in the name of Peaceful Liberalism. We see them as they are. They have become the very thing they SAID they were opposing Mean, Hateful and vindictive.

It boils down to,
we as a nation are getting screwed over so the Liberal camp can keep a flawed Plan they NEVER READ and VOTED TO IMPLEMENT WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING the impact it would have on the economy.

Scott Dean hearing Friday 10/04/2013

I want to know why there is no media coverage or comments on the upcoming hearing for Scott Dean this Friday @2:30? This is a hearing based on extraordinary evidence (the victim recanting her story) & I would think it would have received some attention or is someone trying to bury the information? Seems to have a media blackout-for what reason?

Rant#8

I resent that! I watch the Dims and Republicans regularly. Sometimes a fellow just needs a distraction in order to stay sane. My distraction is NASCAR.

Pork and poultry slow-smoked on the grill, with family and friends anxiously waiting nearby. Craft beers, and home-made sides, a little trash-talk back and forth over the best driver/team – why that just makes it a little easier to deal with the utter insanity coming forth from Washington on a regular basis.

We can lose ourselves for a few short hours, have a good time, rejuvenate, and come out the other side loaded for bear.

And loaded for bear we are!!!

Jail Photos Columbia County

I saw the other day that the Chronicle is still using the same mug shots for their regular article on arrests with booking photos for Columbia County. I have no idea who those 6 people are or if any were found not guilty, but it seems wrong to eternally keep their photos up. Why not use the last ones arrested each week? Walking around with your photo constantly in the Chronicle jail report is pretty tough I'd imagine.

Does the government shut down mean that Air Force One is grounded?

I noticed that too, but figured there were so few criminals from Columbia County the Chronicle had to use the only photos they could find.

So watch as we relive another shutdown,

Watch as the playbook is dusted off and the same rhetoric is used as before. Example, MotherJones.comis full of wrong facts

SO WHAT WILL REALLY HAPPEN?

The Military will be paid.

Congress will get paid.

The President will get paid

Social Security, will still be paid.

EBT & Welfare wil be paid

Air traffic controller will be paid.

US Customs, DEA, FBI, ICE, NSA, ___ and many no letter dark world operations agencies will still be funded and paid.

Of the about 4.1 Million Federal government workers, 3.3 million are deemed "essential" will keep working and will get paid.

The 450,000+ of non-essential Unionized Federal employees will be repaid for furlough time after the shutdown. The other 350,000 other non-essential I am not sure about though.

The US Mail will continue to come.

U.S. $16.699 trillion credit card called the Debt Ceiling will not be increased.

At last count 4 alternatives have been offered to Mr. Reid and Mr. Obama. All 4 were dismissed and Reid/Obama REFUSED TO ALLOW THE SENATE TO VOTE ON ANY OF THEM.

They want it ALL their way, or NO WAY.

So who is really is refusing to openly discuss the problem and who is refusing to discuss alternatives?

REID & OBAMA.

Government Shutdown, the sky didn't fall, the sun and moon are still in the sky! Senators Relosi and Peid didn't get their way so the took their ball and went home, refusing to even let their team look at it! China is waiting for Obama's latest loan application. Stay tuned to "As the Stomach Turns"!!

Countyman missed one - A Humongous RAVE

for the Eastman Gun Show coming to Columbia County.
October 12-13, 2013

As foretold last year, after several of us south siders bombarding them with requests and having discussions with their staff at other show locations.

WELL, The Southeasts Largest & most respected Gun Show, The Eastman show has finally come to the CSRA area.

http://www.eastmangunshows.com/photos.asp

They have strict limits on the number NON-firearm related vendors and items. So you will see more firearm related stuff and less for the Honey, unless she likes guns instead of jewelry.

We talking major loaded ammo, reloading supply dealers.

Plus 1000's of private and FFL firearm sales.

Columbia Co. / Augusta - October 12-13, 2013
Columbia County Exhibition Center, 218 Gateway Blvd, Grovetown, GA, 30813. I-20 to Exit 190, south on Hwy 388 to Gateway Blvd.(just past the Walmart Supercenter)for 1/8 mile. Next to YMCA.

I wonder why they choose Columbia Co. Vs. the TEE Center or the James Brown arena?

Good Morning "There's HOPE" America

"I Will Not Be Bullied" The words of the Hammer & Sickle man.

Will I hate to tell you but you have just received the first foot print in your face. The true Patriot Americans have just woke up to your "Reconstruction Of America". Your crown is about to be stomp on like a cow patty in a field. As long as the real Americans keep their guns loaded, America will become America again!

I am tired of America being

I am tired of America being held hostage by a minority of progressive liberal Democrats in Congress. The Rep will cave to Reid who runs all of Congress. Weird that a minority could have such power and influence over the majority.

The Stupidity Of The Inbreed Liberal Minds

Lincoln Memorial, Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, Jefferson Memorial and Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, among others, would be barricaded so that visitors cannot enter them.

Million will be spent to barricade them which will be more than the cost of leaving them open.

A RAVE FOR HOPE

Today we started our count down for our move nto Northeast GA.

T-MINUS 175 days for our last move.
Unless a miracle happens here in Augusta, taxes are lowered, crime downs and Downtown quits sucking the county taxpayers dry. OH! or the USA Admin declares Marshal Law.
