Rants and raves

HOORAY FOR DAVID Moretz and the other volunteers for putting up the Christmas lights downtown!

ANOTHER CHRISTMAS rant. Please stop using those tacky little bags to put presents in. A tree looks so much prettier with wrapped presents with bows on them than with those tacky little bags with colored toilet paper sticking out of them. Plus wrapped presents are so much more fun to open.

I HAVE A RANT for the person or persons that decided to burglarize the Forest Estate area, (off Northleg Drive) by hitting all the homes that have older model cars and trucks parked in their yards, just remember that the items that were stolen are same items that will (get you) caught!

MARION WILLIAMS IS an embarrassment to the city of Augusta. He's uneducated and has a chip on his shoulder toward anyone white. He never contributes anything constructive or productive during the commission meetings, and everything is about him and not the betterment of Augusta.

MANY RAVES FOR THE Christmas decorations in the neighborhood on Flowing Wells Road across from Augusta Prep. It is a delight.

I WOULD LIKE TO PUT a rant in the paper please. To the person complaining about Southerners can't drive and are so stupid they can't use their signal lights. Well, what are you doing down here anyway? If you don't like the South go back up north where you belong.

I HAVE TO SAY something. I just have to say it. Marion Williams is supposed to be a man of God. And I just don't know what God. He's arrogant, he's self-centered and he's greedy.

A.K. HASAN YOU may have been voted out in Super District 9, but here in District 6, Super District 10, I'd be more than happy to vote for you for board of education or county commission. Thank God Andy Cheek and Marion Williams cannot run for office again.

THIS IS A RAVE for Andy Cheek and Commissioner Marion Williams. They have done a great job while they are in there. They are not afraid to tell the truth and to speak up for what is right. A big rave to them. Of course, this may not be printed in The Augusta Chronicle.

THIS IS A RANT for Marion. If he can't get in the racing and concession business, he can always go back to real estate, selling churches. He's good.

Marion Williams does what he

Marion Williams does what he is suppose to do, which is oversite. Commissioner Williams always ask tough questions and provide feedback. Some on the commission just vote and have nothing to say. If Our U.S. Congress would of ask tough questions (both Dems and Reps ) . we would not be in this mess in Iraq. So when you see the Mayor Pro Tem running his mouth it is not ego it is OVERSITE, which protects all citizens.There are some commissioners who love the "status quo" The haves continue to have and the have nots cont.. aka Jerry, Jimmy, and you know the rest.

Marion Williams is a joke. He

Marion Williams is a joke. He stomps his feet and pouts when he doesnt get his way, and of course always has the race card tucked conveniently away. He has an air of entitlement about him. And like most blacks knows the race card will help him get his way. Mr. Williams and Betty Beard are two of the most racist people you will ever meet.

Marion Williams is ignorant,

Marion Williams is ignorant, unprofessional, rude, self-fish and a racist. As long as he is on the commission, nothing will be accomplished, in spite of all the education he has received going on these trips to conventions, ha!

Oh Please , the only problem

Oh Please , the only problem with Marion Williams is that he is an Outspoken Black Man, which is problem in this town, Whites folks love to say some one brings out the race card, who has benefitted the most in this country from the race card, who has reap the most rewards from racial quotas in this country. The whites love to say someone lowered the stand, but when they lowered the standard for the new fire chief no one complained.
In 2006 we still have this selective outrage from the white communty, I see the comment on this fourm everyday and it is sad the way this town thinks and offensive remarks of cotton fields that I have seen from people with no courage. This country is going backwards. This just in The confederates Loss.
How do you know what and how much education Marion Willams, I Bet you would never say a white commissor is uneducated, always assuming that you are smarter then someone black . Please!

those tacky little bags are

those tacky little bags are called 'gift bags.' the toilet paper you refer to is 'tissue paper.' be glad if you get one, it's called a 'gift.' then you can save the bag, recycle it and use it to present a gift to someone else. Merry Christmas!

People...Do not respond to

People...Do not respond to those who waste time to send in emails as immature as using gift wrap instead of gift bags. Those types of people are looking for a response. Don't give them your attention. They obviously are missing something in their life.

To owensjef: You are an

To owensjef: You are an example of "the marion williams school of politics," using words you can't spell & don't know the meaning of to deflect the obvious ignorance of your ilk. Dictionarys are useful tools to help rid ignorance and may help you understand what people really mean when they voice their opinions. You need to proofread your comments before submitting. "Marion's School of Thought" is not accredited but lampooned.

Why is it that everyday in

Why is it that everyday in this section of the paper do comments turn into a racist issue? I find it humorous, immature and childish. Not one person commented on the color of Marion Williams' skin, although the "race card" still got dropped. There are racist white people in this community, there are racist Asian Americans in this community, and there are racist African Americans in this community, with this comment I am not shunning the reality of the situation but more acknowledging the facts. People please stop with the race comments, there are more important issues facing this community today, like poverty, homelessness, crime, etc... than getting upset over someone's negative comment towards an African American politician. Tell you what, how about instead of wasting our time responding to babble such as this, we go out and do something productive for Augusta, or better yet, reflect on the fact that we are lucky enough to have computers in order to respond to these posts. Just My Opinion!

Yea Remond how many times did

Yea Remond how many times did you read my post for mis spellings , keep reading you will find more, my eduducation level is higher than normal, that does not mean that I am smart. Once agan when a black person answeres the post of certain citizens someone say please stop using race, however when white citizens were saying send blacks back to the cotton fields no one responded, by the way Mr. Smart "Ramond" no one uses a dictionary any more we use spell check, I am not spell checking a quick post so peo can say That was well written.

To Ilovetaxes, When will you

To Ilovetaxes, When will you realize that blacks and whites will never get along. People will think the way they want. You can't change that. So stop wishing for the utopian dream of racial harmony that liberals like you feel can be achieved by coming together of the community.
