Rants & Raves

IT WOULD BE A LOSE-LOSE deal in many ways to merge GHSU with Augusta State.

HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND those weak minds under the “Gold Dome.” We want employees laying out of work so as not to accumulate any unused sick leave because we can’t afford to pay. We consolidate tech schools and colleges, but we continue to build and open more. I certainly feel better now, between Waynesboro, Augusta, Grovetown and Thomson I’m never more than 15 minutes away if I feel the need to stop and attend any classes. With this kind of reasoning I’m really scared of what these places might be teaching.

A RANT FOR ALL the people wearing pajamas to public places like Walmart. I just left there and one young man was wearing pajamas down at his knees.

TO THE PERSON(S) that found my purse in the North Augusta Walmart parking lot, could you please put the purse in a post office brown bag and mail me the contents (using my driver’s license address) and put a big POSTAGE DUE on it since I know you have already spent my cash and used one of my credit cards to get almost $50 worth of gas. I will pay the mailman the postage so you won’t have to – the cards that were in there are very hard to replace and some were very sentimental, and the credit cards have already been canceled so they are no further use to you. PLEASE!!!???!! Thanks.

EACH TIME I HEAR of Obama’s latest “actions” I have less respect for him as president, leader and person.

BIG RANT FOR ASU and GHSU. It has been MCG for a long time and it will always be MCG to me. I do not think the founding fathers of this hospital would want this name change or merger. If they want this to be a research institution, then let it be a research institute. Take care of the patients and stop messing with this. It is a bunch of hullabaloo.

THIS IS A RANT FOR anyone opposing ID card for voting. My wife has lived in Georgia for more than 40 years. She does not have a driver’s license. She has a military ID, but in order to be issued a handicapped permit, she must have a Georgia-issued ID card. Which is more important, voting or parking?

THE GAS COMPANIES gave us a break so we would spend our money on Christmas. Well guess what? The holidays are over and so are low gas prices.

I saw that countyman mentioned "certain posters" in one of his posts......could he be specific please....:)
I feel certain posters are more fun sometimes....certain posters are smart....certain posters have "cute"names.....certain posters can see what Augusta is about to do...(land swaps)....certain posters don't live in downtown Augusta or even the county of Richmond....BUT they sho can think clearly....I say thanks to "certain posters"...
btw--they were great last night ...:)

But I've enjoyed as much of this as I can stand

Like Porters song....I've enjoyed as much of this as I can stand....have lots to do.....have a great day..:)

I still want to know what the big deal is with showing some type of identification in order to vote. An ID card is not that hard to get. And if you live in GA you have until March 6 to get an ID if you don't have one already.

My understanding is any type

My understanding is any type of state issued identification, so a permit should be good. But I could be wrong.

You know, I thought I was wrong once before but I was mistaken.

Listened to a woman with the ACLU on CSpan lambasting SC on the voter ID matter, even mentioned Ga as in their sights. Didn't the courts already make a decision on the GA ID law and it is now settled.
Folks like the ACLU crowd irritate the daylight out of me. They give folks no credit at all for taking care of themselves. Seniors should be insulted to hear that they can't get all the paperwork when most all of them already produce ID to get support of some kind.
Man! All that holier than thou attitude while taking away one's self-esteem. WE are not dummies ACLU!!!

Allhans, I wonder where it stops with this no voter ID? Will it be the person doesn't even have to identify himself? Not even speak to give his name? Anyone who comes in just votes without verifying anything? Is this bizarre or what?
