Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

I’M VERY disappointed in the Republicans voting for Obamacare. The will of the people don’t want it. There is something very wrong here. They probably just care about their paychecks and their health insurance. I am very disappointed.

OBAMA AND HIS Democrats make the shutdown as difficult as possible for the military and veterans. More proof that these folks are ANTI-AMERICAN. Anyone who continues to support these guys are either parasites or low information zombies.

BIG RANT FOR Columbia County roads and bridges. Surveying on Columbia Road for widening? Five lanes down to two? Then a new three-lane bridge that was obsolete when built. Then three lanes, then four, then five at intersection. This major cross county road should have four-laned 10 years ago. CC leaders knew they would build 100s of housing units with two-plus automobiles emptying onto a two-lane county road. Urban sprawl with country roads. Who is stealing the highway money in CC? And don’t say CC has no control over these roads. CC can build any type of road amendment if the money comes from a business or a housing developer.

THE AUGUSTA Greenjackets will not be called the North Augusta Greenjackets. The powers that be in North Augusta will call them what they want to call them and we won’t have anything to say about it.

HOW ABOUT just call them a person and not worry about what color they are or where they came from or anything else? I think that would be a good idea.

I HAVE NEVER SEEN any group of people in a so-called free country have such hateful attitudes toward the president in this country. They are will to disrupt the lives of so many people to continue the theme of racism. The insurance no different than car insurance. There will be ways to work out the kinks. The Bible is being fulfilled for the last days.

BLACK AMERICAN is the correct term. I am a black American.

RANT FOR CC latest entertainment. The annual mowing of the trash with the grass. Beautiful. Isn’t there a law against littering the roadways? From Wally World to Pollard’s Corner. William Few looked like a war zone this morning. Piles of grass in the middle of the road. Next we will be treated to the bi-annual surveying of Washington Road from Wally World to General Riverwood’s Plantation. Three years straight.

Black American

You can get away with that African American, Asian American, Hispanic American, European American, etc crap here in America, but it won't fly in the rest of the world. Try using these terms in the continent of Africa or Asia for example.

An outside country will only see one thing; an American.

That's as it should be here!

@seenitb4...

....What company did your husband work for and why were his benefits done away with? Of course if this is too personal then you don't have to answer.

SeenitB4 @ 12:04

"'A woman has twins, and gives them up for adoption. One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named 'Amal.' The other goes to a family in Spain, they name him Juan'. Years later; Juan sends a picture of himself to his mum. Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband that she wished she also had a picture of Amal. Her husband responds, "But they are twins. If you've seen Juan, you've seen Amal." '

Now I'm going to spend some $$$ B4 the giverment takes any more...& that is not a joke"

I don't know if this was for me, BUT again, I do appologize for being incesitive earlier!! Have a good Sunday!!

We both worked for the Bell system..they are NOT done away with (yet anyway)...but we gave up raises for the insurance coverage & if you worked a period of time you were to have some COVERED by the company...
Some folks have a small pension check & could deal with that because of the benefits..that is no longer true....I know some who will suffer now & many of my generation don't want a FREE anything...what is scary & all should think about this....anything can change for everybody....even pensioins can go bye bye....we are walking on different soil today....see yall

Thanks seenitB4

We are indeed walking on different soil today and nothing is 100% guaranteed anymore except the proverbial "death and taxes".
Pensions have the potential of bankrupting states and corporations and we are starting to see that. Here in California that specter is starting to loom and it will be interesting to see how it is handled.
My guess is that if you are not personally affected by a denial or reduction of pensions/benefits then you will be in favor of the reductions no matter if it is fair or not. However, there is going to be a segment of the population that will be very irate and rightfully so. Also, how will the courts rule on it since it will surely be brought to trial.

Well said of those who state

Well said of those who state we are all only Americans. If we "qualify" by ethnicity next will be gender, age, etc., etc. etc. The problem is all the efforts of emotional baiting rhetoric that many use for a cause can get out of hand as some people lose their perspective and start demonizing groups. The basic definition of the Democratic political machine is demonizing groups rather than policy. It works much better than boring policy especially for the weak minded. It's like watching football or wrestling (Dem strategy of show and ad hominem) is much more exciting to most than a debate (Rep strategy of policy).

@t3bledsoe

I was amazed at your positive comments today and agreed with them but don't mess with our friend Seenit. As you said, she is usually positive but when you mess with someone's benefits that they have earned it hurts.

You must have private insurance and maybe Medicare Advantage so you probably won't be affected but Seenit is looking at a pill that is hard to swallow. :)

I'm a pale American

Actually, I'm kind of taupe. Depending on the time of year, I could be beige, or kind of a burnt orangish brownish. Some times I'm just pale.

What does it matter? It shouldn't matter! Of course if you're the "right" color your opinion means a little more according to some.

What a bunch of know(no)-nothings!
