Rants & Raves

PLEASE PUT SOME Taser-toting foot beat patrols downtown. Day­time, too, so that you make sure the violence does not spread again into the earlier hours.

JUDGING FROM HIS recent comments, Board of Regents Chancellor Hank Huckaby is a big part of the problem. How dare you come into our city and scold us for not supporting Azziz. Hold the man who appointed them responsible. Get rid of Nathan Deal and have his successor appoint a new board. We’ll have to vote Democrat in the next gubernatorial election.

PRESIDENTIAL ADVISER David Axelrod said, “Part of being president is there’s so much beneath you that you can’t know because the government is so vast.” There are two solutions to this problem. Make government small enough so you can know what’s going on, or get a job where you do know what’s going on, say a lemonade stand in Kenya.

RANT ON THE Augusta Commission members who focus their attention only on downtown housing, the riverwalk and the bus issue. What about the other people in areas of Richmond County that need help? We pay taxes, too. Why don’t you guys go past the Mike Padgett area down Highway 56 and explore Brown Road? The Hephzibah area needs a hospital or emergency services that are close by for life-threatening events. We just have a one-sided county who keeps the help centralized.

MR. PRESIDENT, IT IS time for you to tell the people the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God. This is what the people want on IRS, Benghazi and the AP scandals. Actually on everything. You, Holder and your other members of your administration took an oath. Good, bad, or indifferent, tell the whole truth. Show us transparency.

I SEE MY NEIGHBORS tossing big, bulk waste left and right at the curb for pickup before the once-a-week trash haul.

MARK SANFORD SHOULD have been fined an amount to have all the locks of his ex-wife’s house re-keyed so that he cannot enter illegally again.

THE NEWSPAPER reports “over the past five years,” cops have gone to 66 criminal incidents at a nightclub called Coyotes. With such a record, why is such a place allowed to stay in business?
