Rants & Raves

IT’S THE REPUBLICANS who have no common sense at all. They only have the instincts to push for themselves and anyone with more than a million dollars.

DEAR BUSINESS owners: If you are careless about using proper punctuation/grammar/spelling in your ads and street signs, I wonder how much you really care about other aspects of your business and my patronage?

PRESIDENT OBAMA IN his television address to the nation on the Affordable Care Act stated that most Americans can be covered for $100 or less. Correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t that a downright lie?

COLUMBIA COUNTY Water Department is unreal. They now employ two people to read water meters. One to touch the wand on the meter cover, and one to drive the golf cart. What a waste of resources!

A RANT FOR tailgaters. The law states that you should leave at least one car length for every 10 miles per hour you are traveling. You riding my bumper will not make me close that gap. I refuse to break the law and endanger myself and other innocent drivers. Slow down, people.

THANK YOU, THANK you, thank you to The Augusta Chronicle’s Pardon Our Mess. You got our ditch out here on Cherry Road cleaned up in two weeks that we have been trying to get cleaned up for the past three years. Great job! We really appreciate your getting the job done for us and also the ones who did it. Thanks to all.

I HAVE (HAPPILY) lived in McDuffie County for 15-plus years, have had once-a-week trash pickup all that time and have not had a problem; everything has worked just fine.

RAVE FOR THE Goldberg Dental Group. Drs. Stephen and Adam Goldberg and staff should be called Goldberg “Family” Dental Group because they treat their patients like family in addition to great dental care.

RAVES FOR NURSES, especially Sharlotte Schillings, R.N., in the Endoscopy Department at Doctors Hospital.

I AM SURE that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was influenced by President Obama’s response to the Syria chemical attack that prompted him to state regarding the Iranian nuclear threat: “If Israel is forced to stand alone, Israel will stand alone.” Netanyahu is not going to stand in the background whimpering but will take care of the problem.

Yes Netanyahu has something

Yes Netanyahu has something that Obama does not have. Do I need to explain to anyone what that is?

Ranter Mad At Those Who Work For Themselves

“IT’S THE REPUBLICANS who have no common sense at all. They only have the instincts to push for themselves and anyone with more than a million dollars.”

Spoken like a true socialist wanting to take from others and angry at those working hard.

Ranter #3

He missed the rest of the story. It is possible for a person to be covered by health insurance for $100 — $100 a week, that is.

Obama's got it too

Netanyahu and Obama have exactly the same thing. That being massive weaponry bought and paid for by the citizens of the United States.

COLUMBIA COUNTY Water Department is unreal.

Sounds smart to me, in doing so in this manner they can cover 4 routes in the time it would take to do it in a traditional manner. It's called effective use of manpower and thinking outside of the box. Cudos to them for coming up with a solution that doesn't require more taxes and manpower!

A RANT FOR tailgaters

A RANT for idiots in the left lane! Sunday evening I ventured to Washington Rd. That entails my traveling on I 520 from South Augusta to I-20. In that travel I encountered 6 vehicles traveling at 40 mph in the left lane. 2 were chatting on cell phones, 2 were texting and swerving between the right hand lane and the jersey barriers and 1 appeared to be a zombie and the last one a senior citizen whose wife was actively engaged in a highly animated discussion with him. I could tell because she was twisted in her seat, and her hand did everything but hit him in the face! Hey, Chronicle, why not ask DOT why they don't put up signs that say "Keep Right Except to Pass" on the roadways or "Slower Traffic Keep Right". One more to consider is "Vehicles over 6 Wheels use Right Lane ONLY" Yes, I'm talking about the 18 wheeler drag races that start at Gordon Highway and last to Peach Orchard Rd. That's almost as frustrating as driving behind Epstiens Mother!!

Ranter #1. They must have

Ranter #1. They must have some common sense and also be smart because as you say they have a million dollars. Most Republicans I know are just conservative people who think they should stand on their own two feet and provide for themselves and are sick and tired of people that will not do it for themselves.

"They only have the instincts

"They only have the instincts to push for themselves and anyone with more than a million dollars."

Heh heh heh. While the Democrats continue to push for people who REFUSE to work for a living and want those "with more than a million dollars".....or more than $250,000.......or more than $100,000, to provide them with total life support and an Obamaphone. Let's face it....anyone who has worked and earned what they have is the sworn enemy of those who are trying to take it from them.....and rightfully so. Half of the people want the other half to support them from cradle to grave and that will not work. We have a 50/50 philosophical split.....the donors and the takers. What comes next will not be pretty. The American people have lost their stomach for armed revolution so the most likely outcome will be financial collapse. Either way, there will be shooting involved. When it happens here we will make Greece look like a block party.

I'm shocked more & more

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Two Cherokee County high school students are facing criminal charges and school disciplinary action after allegedly engaging in a sex act in the middle of the Etowah High School cafeteria last week.

Channel 2 Action News reported that the incident, which allegedly happened during last Thursday’s lunch period, was videotaped on a cell phone by a third student who forwarded the video to friends.

The sex act between the two freshmen came following a dare, according to Channel 2.

Some parents questioned why teachers didn’t notice and stop the sex act, but other students told Channel 2 that it was hidden so well that those sitting at the next table had no idea what was going on.

Cherokee County schools issued a statement that said, “Two juvenile Etowah High School students were charged with misdemeanor public indecency for an incident that occurred on Oct. 10. Appropriate school disciplinary action will also occur.”
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

We have lost the school system ....we have lost our sanity....we need punishment that works & we need it now.

Obama is to blame. He helped

Obama is to blame. He helped big business with exemptions and delays and refused delays for individuals. Sounds like what Republicans are constantly being accused of.

People just don't get it.

People just don't get it. Nobody is REQUIRED to purchase health insurance from the exchanges. They are perfectly free to go to an insurance agent, where the agent can get them the best price. And it's true, most people CAN get it for $100 per month, but too many people want gold service that pays for everything with beer-bottle prices. You see, for years they went to hospitals and said that they were "indigent" and people like me and my husband paid for them. Now, they are waking up to reality. No more trips to the mall, no more taking the family out to Chili's for an overpriced meal, no more trips to Las Vegas, no more vacations to Mexico. No more trips to the bars, put down the cigarettes. Now they get to pay just like the rest of us responsible people have been doing all these years. They will manage just fine.
