Rants and raves

A 'REVIEW' SAYS Georgia's math test for eighth-graders matched the state curriculum, thus it's just fine. Meanwhile, "nearly 40 percent of eighth-graders failed the math CRCT this year." Is the problem the students, the teachers, the politicians or the parents? Obviously, it's all four!

OUR IDIOT GOVERNMENT wants to bail out foreign owned banks. I'd like to see our entire ruling class fired and have it replaced by the first 800 names in the Columbia County phone book. Things could only improve!

CAN WE ELECT the smart presidential candidate this time?

RANT TO ZAXBY'S. I can't believe you are suing Egg Roll Express because you think their building resembles yours. I do not see that those two buildings look that much alike. What a petty thing to tie up an already busy court system with.

WHILE DRIVING DOWN Deans Bridge Road, I noticed seven to eight fire trucks at the new million-dollar training center. I was just wondering who was going to respond to emergency calls while they were training?

RANT TO MCDUFFIE schools. I have three kids in three schools and have received my sixth(!) fundraiser packet within two months. My daughter doesn't get to attend the "Mega Party" because I refuse to ask my family and neighbors to buy $8-a-roll wrapping paper when people can't even afford to fuel their vehicles.

RANT TO RICHMOND School Transportation. We, as parents, trust you with our children. Do your job and check the buses and if you're late, transportation, you need to answer the phone.

ALL THE COLISEUM board members should be fired. The civic center is nothing more than a waste of funds and should be closed immediately.

A BIG RAVE TO The Chronicle for printing Dr. Larry B. Mellick's article on the opinion page Sept. 23, and a big thank you to Dr. Mellick for something good in contrast to so much bad that usually makes the news!

Here is my 4:20am post if

Here is my 4:20am post if anybody cares (or doesn't) --- I "agree" with the fire training RANT. Why should our brave men and women in pubic service use a state of the art taxpayer-funded training center to learn how to better protect our lives and property while reducing the risk to their own safety? Seriously, I'm sure the dispatcher and Fire Chief were aware of where those trucks were and alternative coverage plans were in place. I do wonder who paid for the gas for the trucks to get there though....perhaps we should get the county commisioners to investigate their fuel cards. Sheesh folks, get a grip and be glad they are working so hard to maintain and hone their skills. G'mornin, namasta and all y'all. Happy Friday!

This was it for you this

This was it for you this am...Rant to the Augusta Chronicle--your daily poll started out with over 2000 votes for Biden...hopefully, you'll get it fixed before everyone thinks that's the case. Palin won fair and square! She was GREAT!!! Um, independently speaking of course! LOL Morning pths, sorry no timehack-it wasn't online in time. (': Have a good day ya'll!--but yanno...

This is a rant to the low

This is a rant to the low life hacker who has skewed the opinion poll numbers here on the AC. Why are you so terribly frightened of allowing an honest poll to be taken? It just goes to show how low some democrats will stoop to create a false sense of approval for themselves. Shame on them!!!!!!

Of course the term 'honest poll' is an oxymoron.

check the poll numbers about

check the poll numbers about the debate on www.drudgereport.com ..... these are the folks that actually read news. And before you Obiden idiots say it - it's just a link to other news sites. Matt Drudge doesn't even voice his opinion there.

Why do people have a problem

Why do people have a problem with those that have a habit of winking...I like it! When I was a kid...my Uncle used to wink at us and we LOVED it! It gave us his approval...I just don't see a problem with it...
