Rants & Raves

A BIG RANT TO the Richmond County Board of Education for allowing thugs and criminals to ruin life for other students while not allowing teachers or principals to discipline them. They can curse, threaten and disrespect teachers because there are no serious consequences. Most of the time, the teacher is put on trial. I wonder what would happen if I disrespected my principal? I would be fired; yet these thugs are allowed to run these schools. Quit wasting money on tribunals; let your principals quit serving as puppets and place the fear of God in these students.

THIS IS A RANT to an un-American person who has stolen three of my American flags off my Appling property. If you wanted a flag so bad, all you had to do is ask and I would have bought you one as long as you honored it ... wait, that’s a stupid thought. Anybody who would steal an American flag has no honor or respect for this great country.

BLANCA AND HUGO Diaz brazenly operated in plain sight but were never thought of as illegal immigrants. This is hard to believe with all the goings-on at their $1.7 million home and their business dealings. There should be no jail time for them, let’s deport them — now.

WHAT’S UP? Fire Chief Hanley suspended for looking at what every other firefighter looks at (I have seen it myself.) He is 70-plus years old. Let the man retire with full benefits, and go after the other guys who need to be looked at. Come on, Augusta; let’s get real.

THANK YOU TO Westside baseball players for the fight of a lifetime in your baseball uniforms. Thanks to the YouTube video, you have both shown what great baseball players you are and what sportsmanship is all about. I sure hope Westside throws your butts off the team because this is definitely not how teammates act. Westside should show more pride.

RANT TO ALL schools that did not observe Black History Month with any programs.

THE AUGUSTA Commission has hired another “expert” to do its jobs for it. Why not just elect an expert?

I WANT TO THANK Washington Road Krispy Kreme for helping the youths at Crawford Avenue Baptist Church with their fundraiser. God will bless you.

There should be a law that requires all schools to pay homage to black people during black history month.

It would SEEM that a law dealing with black history month would have been among the 40,000 new laws passed in 2011.

The Richmond County Board of Education has nothing to do with not allowing principals and teachers to discipline the children, it is a federal law.

Ok a few rants/raves I can

Ok a few rants/raves I can bite into..

We have said on here that the thugs are running the schools we see it in the news everyday....so what gives???
We oldtimers KNOW what is going on.....we know this didn't happen in our day either.....we had respect for teachers-principals-and adults....because we KNEW a whupping had our name on it if we didn't..

Flags go missing in Appling......ok Cgee ......where did ya put em...just joking guys...he would give a flag to someone if they wanted it..:)

Looking at porn at work...yeh I'm hearing that is addictive just like cigs-drinking------even FBI-CIA supers get busy with that.....so what is the answer.......we don't want to block the internet....& sometimes the DANG stuff comes up even when you don't ask for it---WeLL it does & it takes over your computer & laughs when you try to remove it---I'm telling ya the truth---I've seen it B4. :)
Thanks Krispy Kreme for just being there....hot/ready.....aaah just thinking about you makes me happy.

I understand that some Dems.

I understand that some Dems. are crossing over & voting for Santorum...like we can't figure that out......they think he would be easy to beat & would love to have him as the candidate.......& if he continues to talk about birth control he will be easy to beat....
I'll say this again......please-please talk about the other issues going on...jobs-taxes-unemployment--missing plants in small towns---gas sky high.....there are many imp. issues we should work on.

You read the news, and the

You read the news, and the sometimes nasty raves, and it can be easy to lose heart. But this morning I'm at the McDonalds in Grovetown eavesdropping on a group of geriatric hayseeds discussing their trials and tribulations from their time behind the mule, and I am spiritually rejuvenated. A message lost on the Occupy generation, but hard work is good for the soul, and these gents a good souls because of it.

Please read the first rant.
I guess he or she would agree with my 45 / 45 / 10 hypothesis in regards to todays public education.
45% of the problem is the parents.
45% of the problem is the students.
10% of the problem is "everything else."
I guess my 45 / 45 / 10 hypothesis gains more steam everyday.
Parents and students please pay attention.
It's easier to solve a problem if you attack the bulk of the problem first - parents and students are you listening? Yea, that's what I thought - you aren't !

This is to The Augusta

This is to The Augusta Chronicle & My Addiction to this place!

That very first day that we met
It's a feeling I'll never forget.
All the experiences that we've shared,
I knew right away that you were rare.

You see, it's hard to find a someone like you,
Usually they're too good to be true.
Though I should've entered with more ration,
But with you I felt so much passion.

I wish those things had never happened.
It feels as though my love's been abandoned.
All I wanted was to make you happy,
So why is it that I have to feel so crappy?

gotta go for a few...

For the #1 ranter. I do not

For the #1 ranter. I do not understand why every classroom and hallway in our schools are not covered with cameras and audio. There is no need to actively monitor them, but when a question arises, the recorded evidence is there. The mere presence of them would cut behavioral problems, and the remainder of the troublemakers are more easily weeded out.

Seenit, inre porn popping up.

Seenit, inre porn popping up. Back before we had pop-up blockers, I was online with the company laptop and clicked on a link that was purportedly a shopping site or the like. All of a sudden, porn sites started popping up faster than I could close the windows. Finally, in a panic, I just powered the whole thing off, disconnected the internet connection, and prayed I hadn't locked the darned thing up. If I had to send it in for repair I guess it would have gotten "lost" in transit. I booted back up offline and got it all cleared out, thank goodness.

seenitB4 - Thanks for the shout out.

itsanotherday1 - I wholeheartedly agree with you. I'll tell you why there are no video cameras in schools:
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$.

Now as much as I think "cameras" would be a good idea - I have to fall back to my own thoughts regarding "invasion of privacy." So, it looks like we might be at one of those good points on both sides and therefore one good idea wipes out the other good idea. What to do, what to do?

Since when is a camera

Since when is a camera monitoring the class room/hallways an invasion of privacy. In my bedroom yes, at my daughters school.... no way is it an invasion of privacy.

City projects that are bid on over and over are a waste of time and money for small businesses, said an attorney seeking to "start a dialogue" about possibly changing Augusta's procurement process.
