Rants and raves

RAVE FOR THE Christmas banners that were located at many of the Richmond County intersections, which included south Augusta! WOW! Now a suggestions to "One Up" this incredible idea: Use the same hardware and hang banners that will HIGHLIGHT Augusta during Masters Week.

RANT FOR THE Augusta Commission for still not repairing the huge bump at the Georgia end of the Fifth Street Bridge. Another to the AC for not following up on their published article on this same complaint!

POOR STEVE SPURRIER. Getting smashed by Iowa. You gotta feel sorry for the Old Ball Coach these days. Naaah!

EVERY DAY ALL THESE RANTS about what everyone else should do get a little old. I think if we spent half of that energy on how to make our own lives better instead of being hip deep in everyone else's business, we would be a lot better off.

NO MATTER IF WE wear a white sheet and light a cross in the name of racial purity or dress in black and carry weapons in the name of "justice," hate and ignorance are wrong. They must be stopped before our communities are destroyed.

RANT FOR SOUTH CAROLINA Gov. Mark Sanford for his unwillingness to accept federal money for unemployment benefits, What an idiot.

NOTICE HOW OBAMA does as he pleases already? He claims he is not yet president, so don't weigh him down with problems like Hamas. But then he turns around, still not yet in the White House, and "tells Congress to move on stimulus." That's the way Obama's gonna be, folks. He talks out of both sides of his mouth. It'll only get worse.

JUDGE BLANCHARD POSTPONES the hearing for the brother of Justin Elmore. The brother has apparently been convicted of cocaine crimes and obstruction of a cop. Why should this brother suddenly get a three-month reprieve? Political correctness continues to reign.

OBAMA ALREADY PLANS TO SPEND another few zillion dollars that neither he nor we the people have. Alas, you still can't spend your way out of debt; you must do the opposite -- SAVE! Why can't our politicians learn this? Because it would take away some of their personal power, the thing they ran for office for in the first place. There are enough inflated egos in Washington to make the Earth float out of orbit. Maybe that's behind the weird weather.

The crowd was quickly

The crowd was quickly dispersed by the Augusta Black Panthers. They received word through RCR that they could learn some good tactics for going in and out of windows.

There were a couple commenters deffending Obama this morning. Why did they suddenly tuck their tails and run? All I did was bring up some actual facts rather than glazing them over with empty dreams of change and "yes we can."

I think only the old South

I think only the old South Augusta is mostly working class. But the new South Augusta mainly Hephzibah. Once you cross tobacco rd going to Hephzibah, Blythe, Mcbean, Bath. You have new subdivisons like The Lakes at Spirit Creek. Where the homes cost 300,000 and over. Those people are white collar.

The appointed day of the

The appointed day of the Wheale resignation as reported by the Augusta Chronicle has passed. There should be one more Wheale article published. The subject should be the definition of dichotomy, followed by all of his memorable decisions.
*The great child advocate released a jury convicted rapist to commit another molestation.
*The judge tried a case locally for the Sheriff when just a few years earlier the Sheriff declined to investigate charges filed against Wheale due to what he was reported to have called a conflict of interest.
*The man who declares war on violence and then gives $15,000 to Belmont University to drop charges against his son for detonating bombs(there was a full confession).
*The man who jails men for contempt on child support cases and refuses to enforce visitation orders.
*Finally, when the State brings charges against a man and he hires the highest ranking state authority for his defense (Mike Bowers), and private meetings are held prior to the Grand Jury which lead to dropped charges and eventually a "no bill".
The question here is when does a dichotomy become a full fledged crime, system manipulaion, and abuse of office and power. GA Code 16-5-42

PNC, from your post, I assume

PNC, from your post, I assume that there are only "whiteys" in Congress that have screwed our economy up. Seems to me I see blacks such a Rangel (who doesn't believe in paying his taxes) and others like him when I watch the House on CSPAN every morning. I also believe it was Kerosene Mouth (Maxine) Waters, another black Congresswoman that said Freddie and Fannie weren't broke "so don't fix it".

hey jack, waters was correct

hey jack, waters was correct about the macs.THEY never did say they were in trouble, everyone else has.it seems like they're still in business.of course it would help if all those criminal bankers who received some of that 700 billion would do with it what they were supposed to do.sadly,that money is gone,someone on here tell me once more crime doesn't pay,the hell it doesn't.where is that money?you will never see any gain,it went for other things.let's hope obamas people make these crooks pay it back,or don't release anymore of it let them fail.
