AZZIZ IS MERGING THE schools to increase the unemployment rate. It amazes me how faculty and upper management at GHSU get raises but the administration staff can’t even get a cost of living raise. I honestly believe Azziz wants the staff to quit or find a lower-paying job.

CAN’T BELIEVE THAT Roundtree can believe he is qualified morally and ethically to run for sheriff! Ronnie Strength, we NEED you to please stay and continue your good work.

YES, THE ASU-MCG merger is a terrible thing. We are separate places with different goals. I can see MCG siphoning off funding and cutting more from ASU under Azziz. We already have a great nursing program that places students in well over 90 percent of their graduated students into jobs. And there are folks who don’t need to be forced to have to consider MCG again for their health care when they ran away from it.

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS no trouble criticizing wealthy people, yet President Obama has no trouble living such a wealthy type lifestyle on the taxpayer’s dime!

ACCORDING TO OUR LIBERAL media, you’re a bigot if you don’t approve of gay marriage. Previous battles for civil rights involved money; it is wrong to evaluate money according to the person who has it. With gay marriage it’s not money, it’s a rebuke of 3,000 years of Judeo-Christian family structure. Let them do civil unions.

A CITY OF THIS SIZE and magnitude needs a proper transit system running seven days a week all night and day. It would cut down on traffic accidents, insurance and the upkeep of the streets. I have never seen a city of this size without a daily transit system.

I WOULD LIKE TO thank the Emergency Room at Fort Gordon’s Eisenhower Army Medical Center for its care Saturday morning. Thanks to my doctor who came in and for the personnel on Ward 9 East. You were a blessing to us and we hope God blesses you. I also want to thank the lady who took care of my granddaughter while I was disabled. Thank you and God bless you.

IF MCG WANTS TO MERGE with a college, maybe it should be with Paine College because geographically they are across the street from each other.

@LastRanter. Paine College is a private school, I believe. Don't think you could merge the two.

So a marine has to go pee.

So a marine has to go pee. That is much better treatment than our dead soldiers have recieved from the taliban.

I know we are held to a higher standard.

To the merger of ASU-MCG,

To the merger of ASU-MCG, that's the way it works in the corporate world and especially with GHSU. All the executives and big wigs have to do this in order for them to keep getting those big raises, and don't forget about the BIG bonus at the end of the year. They do have very large bills you know. Ha

MCG has changed a great deal

MCG has changed a great deal and I don't think for the better.My relative has been a patient there for over 25 years now they have canceled all her appointments because she owes a bill for 112.00,she has major health problems and need to be seen by a Dr. regularly but now they will not see her until the bill is paid she cannot even get prescription refills,that's sad she is sick and on disability...MCG use to care for those that were in need,now it's all about the mighty dollar!!

missaugusta..Can't you give her a helping hand. I don't see that $112.00 to a family member is asking too much.

Sitting in Piedmont SC

Sitting in Piedmont SC waiting for an 18:30 appointment, that's 6:30 PM for Marines, to load for Laredo. Taking truck pieces and parts to Mexico so they can make a whole truck and send it back. Why can't we increase production at the Cleveland NC plant and keep the jobs here?

Because THAT would make too much sense....would prop up our tax base...give a decent salary to the needed....pay bills & people could save their house from foreclosure....naaaah our so called politicans can't see
their noses in front of their face.....they have to focus on running again & the NEXT election for THEM.... we have toJERK that rug out from under them once & for all.

A few weeks ago Mexico was

A few weeks ago Mexico was threatening 50% tariffs on goods going into the United States if more Mexican trucks weren't allowed in the U.S. Personally I think Emperor Obama should have said "OK, raise the tariff. NAFTA no longer exists and we need the jobs back in the U.S. anyway"

Instead we have more Mexican drivers hauling AMERICAN freight. Go figure.
