RE: COMBINING ASU AND GHSU: Nobody has asked the college students who are working to get their degrees and want to have the title of their college on their diploma. Nobody has asked the professors or teachers about whether they want this.

THIS IS A MAJOR rant to the James Brown Arena. The RiverHawks are an exciting hockey team; they are doing everything they can to grow the sport in the area and make a night at the James Brown Arena a fun family night – until you want to purchase some concessions. Way to gouge the public on concessions at the arena. You’re not at an MLB, NFL, NHL, NBA event; you’re minor league hockey. Wake up, Augusta, and stop killing your fan base.

WHAT IS MR. ROMNEY’S first name? I don’t think his mother named him Mitt. I think it may be short for Mitchell. If anybody knows, I would really like to know.

THESE PEOPLE SAYING Mr. James is doing such a wonderful job don’t know what they are talking about. Chief Willis was fire chief and EMA manager. Mr. James is not doing the EMA; an assistant chief is doing that.

SINCE DR. AZZIZ flew into town, there have been changes. First the name of MCG. Then he wanted to close the street. Now he is going after ASU. I guess the name of the new college should be the Azziz Medical & Arts of Augusta Georgia. Right.

PATHETIC THAT ONLY three commissioners showed up to interview David Greene for fire chief. It looks like the rest already had their mind made up.

SUGGESTED WORD OF THE DAY: Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing and the most capable of reproducing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers. Kind of defines our society, doesn’t it? What a crying shame.

HOW CAN A READER (say) MCG should merge with Paine College when Paine is a private Methodist college? It is not owned or funded by the state of Georgia, but by the Methodist church. I am sure Dr. Azziz would love to take over Paine, but tell all of the dreamers to dream on!

I've read on here Augusta

I've read on here Augusta State should have merged with Augusta Tech instead.. A four year college and a two year technical school don't fit together..

I think people say things without thinking because it's the internet..

Makes a heck of a lot more
Unpublished

Makes a heck of a lot more sense for a 4 year community college to merge with a 2 year community technical school then merge with a post graduate level medical school

Several people have graduated

Several people have graduated from ASU, and then went on to attend GHSU.. 12.7% of the current student population at GHSU went to ASU.. GHSU offers four other colleges including the Medical College of Georgia(medical school)..

Some people tend to forget we have the only dental college in the state..

the most interesting thing

the most interesting thing about this article are the comments on socialism by the British people.......and that our economy would have fixed itself without barry's meddling.

One poster wanted to know...I simply typed his named into Google amd lookee:

Born: Willard Mitt Romney on Wednesday March 12th, 1947 • Mitt Romney is 64 years old.
----------
Frankly I think he should use Will rather than Mitt..tougher sounding, not newtish.

It's amazing how people can

It's amazing how people can look up everything that there is publicly available about Pres. Barack Obama, yet, they are too lazy to look up things about candidates who are running for president. Just makes me wonder........

Hey, SeenIt and others.

Hey, SeenIt and others. Usually, I just say hey SeenIt, but she's making me jealous dreaming about JRC. Been a rainy couple of days. A good thing we had football yesterday. JRC, I think the receiver had the ball long enough on the endzone pass, I'd have complained if I had been the Ravens.
