Rants & Raves

HOW CAN I GET a job as a consultant for Augusta? They pay well, and I have never known them to follow up on them.

 

THE DOWNTOWN DEVELOP­MENT Authority had a meeting in the morning to discuss violence downtown. Why don’t they meet at night without the police presence? See what the actual problems are that we, the citizens who go downtown, face. Oh, wait a minute, they’re too good for that.

 

JUST WHEN I THOUGHT things couldn’t get worse at SRS, I had to deal with the medical department.

 

A RANT TO THE GOVERNMENT. I love this country and the freedom we have, but I have a problem with a government that gives all these free benefits to people who are here illegally and are not citizens, and someone who has lived here and worked here for a lifetime has got to get a lawyer to get benefits they paid into for a lifetime. We need new leaders.

 

SURELY THERE ARE 10 or more absolutely fearless cops in the Augusta/Richmond government who can take turns doing foot patrol along the riverwalk. All the talk of more spending for cameras, etc., ain’t worth zip. Put one tough cop walking down there, and after one attempted mugging where the muggers are either killed or crippled, watch the thugs avoid the area.

 

THERE IS A DIFFERENCE between helping those who can’t help themselves and helping those who won’t help themselves. Let’s get it straight.

 

THAT DEPUTY WHO WAS arrested for drinking and driving set a fine example for other people. If you want to drink and drive, stay out of South Carolina because South Carolina is a tough little state. They will get you.

 

WHERE ARE THE PRIESTLY people in this world today? All I see is hate and anger. Where are you Christian people? You are preaching one thing and living another one. God is love; God is not hate. If you hate your brother, you are a liar. Please print something spiritual in the paper.

 

I WAS ALWAYS UNDER the impression that America was a democracy. I wonder how this county can force people to take garbage disposal that they don’t want.

 

DR. AZZIZ IS CERTAINLY taking advantage of GRU. You need to replace him as soon as possible before there is no money to be had.
