THIS IS A RANT for teachers who don't do their jobs and let their parapros do everything. They should be ashamed of themselves. I guess they have realized their parapros are doing a much better job than they could ever do. Those teachers should be ashamed of themselves.

TEACHERS RAVE about "interactive whiteboards," yet since they've been around, more students flunk. Is there a connection?

PLEASE YOUNG MEN and women of Augusta. Stop hanging out in our streets. We have houses and backyards. Meeting in them will save your lives and stop lowering our property values.

THREE RICHMOND drug agents killed Michael Nestor in self-defense last fall. Somebody got it right to NOT charge the cops with a crime. The question is: Why did it take a full year to decide what was obvious?

JOHN BARROW SAYS, "I don't think raising taxes on anyone is the thing to do right now." Notice Barrow hedges by adding "right now." That means he can't wait to raise taxes but he's scared to death to do it right now because he sees defeat coming at him full barrel.

THIS IS A RANT to the group that was holding a car wash at the AutoZone on Columbia Road on Saturday. They were representing a local church. The girls were disrespectful and made very inappropriate remarks to the people who were also holding a car wash across the street at Advance Auto. To be part of a church group they were certainly not acting like Christians should.

YOU'VE GOT TO HAND it to Glenn Beck -- he is slick. Most charlatans are slick, sure, but Glenn has found ways to take slick to a whole new level.

THE COSTS (AND LOSSES) quoted in The Chronicle to operate "The Patch" could have easily been paid for at least 10 years with the money we taxpayers paid to attempt to keep a legal business, the X-Mart, out of Augusta.

CAN SOMEONE TELL ME how much this new "Parent Portal" cost the taxpayer? Iparent worked just fine except when the teachers were slow to update it. Second, if the school board is accusing children of pocketing lunch money why isn't there a link on Parent Portal telling parents how much money is in the child's lunch account? A little investigating on the schools' part may fix the problem altogether.

CASHIERS REALLY NEED to stop being so Southern slow. What's the matter? You don't like us Southern people? That's called common courtesy and communication when you talk.

It's deeply touching to me

It's deeply touching to me that Lady Gaga is expressing her political views about gays in the military.

Because I hang on to her every word, and just admire her so much, especially when she wore the meat dress.

Because she doesn't like being treated like a piece of meat, you know.

DEFINE BITTER 1. having a

DEFINE BITTER
1. having a harsh, disagreeably acrid taste, like that of aspirin, quinine, wormwood, or aloes.
2. producing one of the four basic taste sensations; not sour, sweet, or salt.
3. hard to bear; grievous; distressful: a bitter sorrow.
4. causing pain; piercing; stinging: a bitter chill.
5. characterized by intense antagonism or hostility: bitter hatred.
6. hard to admit or accept: a bitter lesson.
7. resentful or cynical: bitter words.
Again...this is for only for the lonely.

"YOU'VE GOT TO HAND it to

"YOU'VE GOT TO HAND it to Glenn Beck -- he is slick. Most charlatans are slick, sure, but Glenn has found ways to take slick to a whole new level."

He'll never be as slick as the charlatan currently residing in the White House! Beck could never sink to a level THAT low!

Ranter "YOU'VE GOT TO HAND it

Ranter "YOU'VE GOT TO HAND it to Glenn Beck -- he is slick. Most charlatans are slick, sure, but Glenn has found ways to take slick to a whole new level." Since when is it 'slick' to present accuracy in history? Since when is it 'slick' to present the truth? Since when is it 'slick' to discuss Faith, Hope, and Charity as qualities of GOOD CHARACTER? The only charlatan, and one who is lacking in good character, I see here is YOU!!

To the person who said Glenn Beck is "slick", maybe you should hang with him awhile, some might just wear off.

A Post from "You Know

A Post from "You Know Who"

THIS IS A RANT for teachers who don't do their jobs and let their parapros do everything. They should be ashamed of themselves. I guess they have realized their parapros are doing a much better job than they could ever do. Those teachers should be ashamed of themselves.

Why should teacher's possess shame? No one else does. Talk about "higher standards".

TEACHERS RAVE about "interactive whiteboards," yet since they've been around, more students flunk. Is there a connection?

Yes, the connection is "Dust In The Wind". Talk about an asinine rant.

PLEASE YOUNG MEN and women of Augusta. Stop hanging out in our streets. We have houses and backyards. Meeting in them will save your lives and stop lowering our property values.

I was confronted by a gang at Circle K in Martinez last Friday pm. They are everywhere. We must ALL be vigilant, call the law when you see these hoods and watch them pick a different place. I sure called the law @ Circle K. Called the Dist mgr too. The gang banger who used to work there is no more. That's my weapon of peace.

THREE RICHMOND drug agents killed Michael Nestor in self-defense last fall. Somebody got it right to NOT charge the cops with a crime. The question is: Why did it take a full year to decide what was obvious?

It takes a full year to let the potential violence from the acquittal fade. Better to take longer and be sure than to rush to judgement, eh?

JOHN BARROW SAYS, "I don't think raising taxes on anyone is the thing to do right now." Notice Barrow hedges by adding "right now." That means he can't wait to raise taxes but he's scared to death to do it right now because he sees defeat coming at him full barrel.

The politician who does not lie does not get elected. Period.

THIS IS A RANT to the group that was holding a car wash at the AutoZone on Columbia Road on Saturday. They were representing a local church. The girls were disrespectful and made very inappropriate remarks to the people who were also holding a car wash across the street at Advance Auto. To be part of a church group they were certainly not acting like Christians should.

I am sick and tired of people telling Christians how to act. "Let those who live not in glass houses throw the first stone. And please wear a robe."

YOU'VE GOT TO HAND it to Glenn Beck -- he is slick. Most charlatans are slick, sure, but Glenn has found ways to take slick to a whole new level.

Glenn Beck is nothing more than Keith Olberman in right wing persona. I espouse turning them ALL off and do some independent thinking. It may hurt until you get used to doing it.

THE COSTS (AND LOSSES) quoted in The Chronicle to operate "The Patch" could have easily been paid for at least 10 years with the money we taxpayers paid to attempt to keep a legal business, the X-Mart, out of Augusta.

The patch is a waste. Sell it or destroy it. If you want affordable golf, buy a Wii.

CAN SOMEONE TELL ME how much this new "Parent Portal" cost the taxpayer? Iparent worked just fine except when the teachers were slow to update it. Second, if the school board is accusing children of pocketing lunch money why isn't there a link on Parent Portal telling parents how much money is in the child's lunch account? A little investigating on the schools' part may fix the problem altogether.

The only solution to the educational crisis in America is the elimination of the Dept of Education.

CASHIERS REALLY NEED to stop being so Southern slow. What's the matter? You don't like us Southern people? That's called common courtesy and communication when you talk.

I moved here from Indiana because I LOVE the slow southern style. Even if I am in a hurry, I enjoy the chat with strangers, anywhere. The time you spend with them just may be the conversation which gets you into the Book of Life. We never know.

These are my opinions, I could be wrong.
Much love,

Think about this for a

Think about this for a minute....

If you happened to show up on my door step crying, (or not)
I would care!

If you called me and asked me to pick you up because something happened,
I would come!

If you had one day left to live your life,
I would want to be part of that last day!

If you needed a shoulder to cry on,
I would give you mine!

This is a test to see who your real friends are or if you are just someone to talk to you when they are bored.

Do you know what the relationship is between your two eyes?

They blink together,

they move together,

they cry together,

they see things together,

and they sleep together,

but they never see each other;

....that's what friendship is.

Your aspiration is your motivation,

your motivation is your belief,

your belief is your peace,

your peace is your target,

your target is heaven,

and life is like hard core torture without it!
