Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

RANT TO THE RCBOE for failing to establish and maintain favorable teaching and learning conditions in many of its middle and high schools.

I WANT TO RAVE to Jimmy at Barney’s Pharmacy in Wrens for bringing my drops by after closing time. He could have been at home but he chose to help me. There are still good people in the world.

THE MEDIA AND the Washington Republicans are determined to destroy any Republican candidate that might be a threat to Romney’s chances of being the nominee to run against Obama. The irony is that all of the candidates are more qualified than the “community organizer in chief” that occupies the White House now. Three years in office and no one has questioned his qualifications yet. The media wants Romney so that the Republican Party will be split and Obama will be re-elected. The Washington Republicans are terrified that the nominee will be something other than their “Republican in name only.”

I SAY LEAVE THE baseball stadium where it is and make repairs if necessary. It will cost too much to relocate.

I’M SORRY JON Huntsman gave up. He was one of the best and the most straightforward of the candidates. Herman Cain shouldn’t have given up either.

AZZIZ, BUY MORE property, pay megabucks for name changes, fire employees, and cut pay for the rest. The college was doing fine before you came.

RICARDO AZZIZ, the great dictator. Why doesn’t Deke just turn Augusta over to him?

TO CASH A CHECK we must show picture ID, so is the problem that you are not being paid to vote? I am sure that if you were told to line up to show ID to get a check that one could be produced and happily at that.

THE CONDITION of Wrightsboro Road from North Leg to Daniel Field is embarrassing! Where are my taxes going, again?!

HOORAY FOR THE new Walmart coming near Wrightsboro Road! Yes, yes, yes!!! That will be much closer because I can rarely get a ride out to the other Walmarts. I just hope it will have the same policy to supposedly match lowest advertised prices elsewhere, please?

I've got a feeling the new Walmart on Wrightsboro Road will look pretty much like the Walmart on Deans Bridge Road.

Given my job and not knowing

Given my job and not knowing if I will be here on primary day I am going to see if I can vote today. If not, I will ask for an absentee ballot. And I would bet Trouble, Seenit, Willow, et al breakfast that I will have to show an ID. And I don't care. Heck, I will even have to show my government issued ID when I go to my government provided doctors appointment. Only took me about 6 weeks to get this one scheduled. Do you realize what a pain it is to plan sickness 2-3 months in advance so it will coincide with a doctors visit?

as far as a republican

as far as a republican canidate what do we have,one who was centured and left congress in disgrace plus he couldnt keep it in his pants( if i remember correctly ,yall crusified clinton for that). then we have a man who brags about creating thousands of eight dollar an hour jobs with no benefits, but doesnt say a word about the thousands of twenty to twenty five dollar an hour jobs that BAIN corp did away with,great choices huh.

Gagentleman, if not for BAIN,

Gagentleman, if not for BAIN, many, if not most of those would have turned into $0/hr jobs because the companies would have gone under. BAIN did not buy out thriving companies; they invested in struggling companies, restructured them, and then turned a profit when they sold them after they were back on their feet.

the new stadium downtown is a

the new stadium downtown is a great idea ,look at the cities like greenville that spent money on itself and created a downtown were all people had things to enjoy,and improved its overall appearance.companies took notice of this and now greenville has JOBS,same is true for greenwood. if you spend the money they will come.look at the jba for example ,i remember in the 90s it was one top name act after another then the larger bi-lo center in greenville was built and concerts dried up here.quit bitching about a twenty dollar a year tax increase on your 150,000 dollar home and help improve augusta,we will all benefit from it,plus the old stadium could be given to our new university so thier baseball facility could be as up to par as other schools.
