Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

IF YOU WANT to end the madness that is going on in Washington, send Congress home and take away their pay. They will fix the problem immediately!

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

I DON’T MIND taking care of the helpless; I’m just tired of being forced to prop up the clueless.

YES, WE CAN fix this country. We can vote all incumbents out of office, from local commissioners to senators and congressmen. If they won’t vote in term limits, we will. Send them packing. When they first get elected, they seem to be concerned about the citizens they represent. Then, it goes to their heads (and bank accounts), and they are only concerned about themselves and the big money coming their way if they make the right decisions. Vote out incumbents; vote in term limits.

IS IT ASKING too much if we request that no more pictures of Miley Cyrus’ tongue be published?

THE GOVERNMENT IS going to pay the furloughed federal workers. Then why can’t they go back to work, instead of staying home doing nothing for the money? That is the way this administration works, something for nothing.

I HAVE A friend who went to the health department and they wanted $5 for a signature on some kind of piece of paper. You can get a professional football player to sign a piece of paper for nothing. Since when is any nurse or nurse assistant worth $5?

I TRIED TO read the pink newspaper. I do support cancer awareness, but it is too hard to read.

I LOVED THE centenarians story. Before I read that article, I didn’t want to live past 75. Seeing these lovely people makes me look forward to living to at least 100. Thanks again.

RANT FOR COLUMBIA County. Can someone tell me where your school crossing guards are?

I JUST MAILED a letter at the Peach Orchard Road post office. The smell from the trash bins made me extremely nauseous. I hope the county will get rid this smell.

propping up the clueless Vs. The helpless.

The US Congress needs to re-evaluate every budget item every 5 years.

The states need to re-evaluate every person drawing ADF, SNAP and Welfare every 2 years.

Plus a suggestion made here.... DNA every child on that gets aid and ID the daddies to pay 50 % of their income until the children reach 18.

theme of racism.

The old if you disagree with a black person you are a racist line.

Give it a rest.

I am in disagreement with the LIBERALS Socialist policies which the Presidents endorses in a prejudicial discriminatory manner.

Regarding his color
I only disagree with the 5/8 that is White Socialist.
Because I don't think President Obama knows what it means to be a Black-America. Remember,he was raised White upper Socialist elite class.

Regarding Obamacare as Law.
Every one keeps saying it is the LAW.
I am willing to bet even YOU can name a few LAWS that needed repealing and thankfully were.

Also if it is a real LAW, then the President is committing Major USC Felony by selective enforcement. The US Constitution says all laws will be applied equally and clearly he is NOT doing that with Obamacare.

How about NO more pictures period.

We need to get away from rewarding Hollywood with FREE PR and image building when it goes off the deep end.

Good Morning *?* America From Okinawa

I have been monitoring all the post while you were all in la-la land.

I hate to say, I am having second thoughts of returning to a my America now knowing it is 1 step from being a total communist nation.

Sad!

Residence

Perhaps ten years ago or more, Sheriff Ronnie Strength spoke at our neighborhood association meeting. One person asked him about the patrol vehicles one sees in front yards and driveways in Columbia County. Sheriff Strength said there is no residency requirement for the department. They are free to live where they want.

One person asked about how many lived outside Richmond County, and Sheriff Strength said, “About twenty per cent.” That was quite some time ago. With the sinking school performance in Richmond vs. Columbia, I would not be surprised if the percentage is higher now.

Welcome

Good to hear from you again, CeeGee. I am glad you are having a good vacation with your wife (aka CIC). I am glad she is getting to see friends and relatives. We do hope you come home to Cobalt Park. . . . . However, if you find a large compound out there in a place that appeals to you, we might arrange for ten or twelve of us Chronicle commenters to move out there with you. Between all of us, we could purchase a seriously large tract of land and establish Cobalt Blue, a compound dedicated to individual liberty and courteous neighborliness.

Racists

I'm tired of all the racists who pick on Ted Cruz because he is Hispanic. I've never seen such hateful attitudes. :)

vote out incumbents?

Everyone says they want to vote out the incumbents, well, then quit voting party lines. I promise you still will and put the same people right back in office.

Incumbents

The answer isn't to "vote for the other guy"... the answer is to primary the ones who don't do what we sent them there to do. Get them out during the primaries and you don't have to choose between evils.

Peach Orchard Road post office

The stink in that location has been reported before....I think the POFC needs to investigate this...if it is coming from another place this office is getting a beating in bad publicity..

Post office is federal property

If the post office dumpsters are the cause, then it's a federal problem and not the county's. I, too, remember this being discussed previously. I think the PO folks said people were illegally using the dumpsters with foul smelling garbage.

Poor public school students/south

http://blogs.ajc.com/news-to-me/2013/10/18/study-most-public-school-stud...

This is a disgrace & why did it happen this way...

Mississippi has the greatest percentage of poor students (71 percent), according to the study by the Southern Education Foundation. Georgia is ranked 6th (57 percent). Thirteen of the 17 states that have majority poor students are from the South.

Maryland and Virginia are the only Southern states that do not have majority poor student populations, maybe because of those states’ large population of federal workers.

Getting Cut Playing Basketball

Guy was playing basketball at the Cherry Tree court. He goes home and tells Mama he got cut. She tells him not to worry because there are other teams he can play for later. He says, "Mom, you don't understand, I got cut."

More porn during shutdown..

Here’s how the excited porn purveyor put it: “Country wide there has been an increase of 4.5%, while the states with the highest spikes have been Nevada (up 42%), Oklahama (up 21%), and Florida (up 14%). Only Missouri (nicknamed the ’show me state’) is down 4.5%. … Maybe they’re providing all the new content instead of viewing it!”

Well isn’t that lovely.

Nevada, where you can pay to have sex with real human beings, had a 42% increase. Why? Either pornhub analysts don’t know how to run a calculator or we’ve found the NSA’s headquarters.

Georgians, who excel at everything except maybe education and tolerance, were among those clicking the hardest.

(Well now...that makes me feel warm & fuzzy that Ga came out on top..lol)

Rant #7

About the $5 nurse signature on "some kind of piece of paper" — I'm guessing that piece of paper was an affadavit that the petitioner is disabled and unable to work; a paper that would make her eligible for SSI monthly payments. Since the nurse knew full well the petitioner is able bodied and perfectly able to work, the $5 is the price for lying.
