KING JAMES......If you could

KING JAMES......If you could run for public office, I would campaign for you! It's nice to read someone that tells it like it is. Hey, you can have Deke's job, as he's not using it.

The city web site has him

The city web site has him listed as Troy Curry and he has been an wmployee since 2007. P.S. I have met many people who work for the city and they were some of the mosy honest hard working people I have ever met. Lets give the workers a break, you may just need them like we did on my street, in the middle of winter at day break, to fix an emergency water leak. Just because one was a crook dosen't make them all the same.

Sad to say, I'm not all that

Sad to say, I'm not all that surprised. I feel confident there are many other communities that would not have employed this convicted felon. Why did Augusta employ him? Why?!?!

Cparker called me a racist

Cparker called me a racist because I said the man would claim he was set up. Now, what are we going to call cparker if it turns out to be true. How about RCR's homie. God forbid if someone tells the truth when it comes to minorities.

first of all curry does not

first of all curry does not represent anybody in the black or white community , and the racist statement involking such is the main reason that there is racial strife in this country , idiots whose statement that otherwise condem the black race not the community , and remember this curry don't own a multimillion operation to ship the d-- drugs here in the first place , he's just stupid enough to sell the stuff to those who demand it black ,white ,hispanic ect . no one race is immune to this menace to deciency . and don't forget it will probably a meth lab at some run down hotel next week out of columbia county !

hrblunt - don't let them get

hrblunt - don't let them get you upset. That's their only way to try to keep their power on you. When you free your mind of their hatred then they will have to feed upon themselves.
