Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

RANT TO THE AUGUSTA Chronicle for the picture of the little girl zombie on the front of the Halloween paper. It was sick, disgusting and ridiculous for the cover of a paper, especially for a little girl.

RANT FOR THE THREE teenage boys attempting to walk up the street with their pants down, straining and wobbling all the way. Unfortunately, you are so stupid you can’t figure out what’s wrong. Very unfortunately, you were high school students, amazing.

BIG RAVE TO THE lady who had complained about that offensive quote on the marker on the 700 block of Broad Street. It takes good citizens one step at a time to correct things like that, and I’m so glad she did so. I had rarely gone to that end of town, and I’m glad it is now cleaned up of such an old, pitifully outdated and plain wrong saying!

HERE’S A MESSAGE for the northern doctor’s wife. We are so fortunate to have sensitive newcomers like you to come down south and show the uneducated residents of Georgia how to correct our historical markers. Thanks!

HAT’S OFF TO THE PENNY pinchers like the raver and Bill Kirby. Now let’s hope those being kicked off of food stamps can learn from all that! Time to give up the candies, sodas, cinnamon buns and other non-nutritional items.

IF THE POLITICIANS think the outlying areas are happy with how money is being spent since we consolidated the two governments, then put a straw poll question to the voters next ballot. Seriously, just ask us what we feel.

OBAMA SPOKE IN BOSTON about the advantage of Obamacare. He stated we are all in the game. If you believe this, you must have put him in office for a second term. Ask Obama when he will sign up for this debacle. Recall Reid and Pelosi are the two that rammed this legislation through, but excused Senate and House from taking part in Obamacare as these individuals have a Cadillac health care plan. What is good for the goose is supposed to be good for the gander. Remember these tidbits in November.

TO THE DRIVER IN the gray or silver truck SC tag who made a right turn on Laney-Walker from the left turning lane on 15th Street. You should be glad that I keep up the maintenance on my car.

Regarding the food stamp

Regarding the food stamp rant. Monster Energy drinks are now classified as beverages instead of dietary supplements. It's also big corporations that like government handouts.

Regarding the removed marker

Regarding the removed marker rant. Yeah, that "end of town" is cleaned up of the marker, but it's not cleaned up of all the urine stains on the J.C. Penny building.

"Recall Reid and Pelosi are the two that rammed this legislation through, but excused Senate and House from taking part in Obamacare as these individuals have a Cadillac health care plan."

Hate is a strong word that is bandied about too casually (like "racist"); so I can't say I hate those two. However, I despise them both to a degree that I've never felt for a fellow American. If they both disappeared from the earth I would still sleep well.

I noticed you already have 2 downers. I also noticed no opposing comments made. It is becoming more clear that you can't defend the indefensible. All they (uninformed) know is if the Democrats loose power some of the freebies will be lost. How sad.

Today and Memorial I can't

Today and Memorial I can't help but shed a tear or two. Remembering those I served with and family members who gave all. The only time I ever wished I had a camera at a funeral was at my nephews. The sight of Navy CPT. Morris Jones (brother in law) saluting the casket of Army CPL Kenneth Jones (nephew) was one of the most touching sights I have ever see. God Bless All.

Children

This is what happens when your child is exposed to too many commercials on TV. A Baptist pastor was presenting a children's sermon. During the sermon, he asked the children if they knew what the resurrection was. Now, asking questions during children's sermons is crucial, but at the same time, asking children questions in front of a congregation can also be very dangerous.Having asked the children if they knew the meaning of the resurrection, a little boy raised his hand........ The pastor called on him and the little boy said, "I know that if you have a resurrection that lasts more than four hours you are supposed to call the doctor." It took over ten minutes for the congregation to settle down enough for the service to continue.

Veterans

This Thanksgiving I will have the pleasure of cooking for several Veterans, all retired. From Army Grunts to Navy Fliers, they will all be in attendance. I'm proud to say they are also Family. Three days of cooking for 40 people seems a very small Thank You for what they have done.. Pearl Harbor on December 7th, Guadalcanal and the Gulf. During the days they'll speak quietly of what they had to do, who stood beside them and who didn't return home. There'll be tears, silence and laughter as they remember and we'll share those with them.

The Truth About Riverman

Yesterday, in response to Avidreader’s question of when Riverman slept, I had to fess up and explain to explain to him/her that Riverman is a conglomerate of posters using that name. We’ve made some changes in our line up for those interested. From 4-7 AM will be the commenter who previously held the 7-12 AM slot. We believe this change will increase our ratings with the early morning crowd. The drive-time readers were not that plentiful due to accidents they’ve been having trying to read while in heavy traffic. So if you notice changes in the comments of Riverman realize Riverman number 1 and 2 have switched time slots. This is Riverman number 4 explaining all this for your information since I am the program director of the assemblage of commenters forming the corporation knows as Riverman. The six of us will be appearing together live at various establishments in the area. Check our calendar for dates and times. We welcome comments from our readers. We take turns reading them.

Today is a Day of Remembrance,

in fact it was called Remembrance Day at one time.
A day ALL of America should be stepping back and thanking Vet's for their service and the freedoms we still.

These men and women put on a suit and served their country whether it was popular or not.

It Is Also Very Important We Not Forget
The Mothers, Wives, and families with too many Gold Stars hanging in their windows. They too deserve recognition.

So instead of Shopping for specials this morning take the family down to Board St. for the Veterans Day Parade . TODAY, November
11, 2013 - 10:00 am Downtown Augusta Parade starts a 13th street
and continues 4th street. The Cost is free and you get a chance
to use the new Parking Deck you are paying for also.
