AH, SPRINGTIME IN Augusta, when the pine trees sneeze pollen all over the place.

I GUESS THE Augusta Com­mission can do whatever it wants behind closed doors.

WHAT WOULD BE wrong with renaming the South­ern Baptists the Great Com­mission Bap­tist Church? Wouldn’t such a highfalutin’ name boost the convention’s corporate image?

BIG RANT TO the elected officials of Rich­mond County. What are we paying you for? Why can’t any of you, leadership included, take the initiative to do something about this outdated town? Regency Mall has been an eyesore for almost 20 years. Now it is probably beyond repair. This structure could have been converted to an outlet mall or something to bring some revenues and visitors into the city.

THANKS TO ALL who stopped and helped my son and his girlfriend on Mike Padgett Highway in the rain. You made sure they were OK and helped us get our truck out of the ditch. I want to thank all that helped us out that night.

A RANT FOR the online commenters of the Rants & Raves. Can you please trade e-mail addresses for your “good mornings” and YouTube posts instead of clogging up the discussion boards?

A HUGE RANT TO the fine, upstanding citizen who walked off with my wife’s only winter coat Feb. 24 at Columbia County park during my daughter’s seventh birthday party. My wife’s been dealing with cancer since October of this past year. Hope you are warm and cozy wearing it. I hope you see this and guilt overwhelms you each time you go to put her coat on.

WHY ARE ALL THESE Walmarts coming to the Augusta area?

WHY WOULD ANYONE think it correct that we should pay for contraception protection for another’s promiscuity?

LET’S STOP SOME of the crime. If murderers were sentenced to die, then hanged on the courthouse lawn for a few days for everyone to see, as they did in the early 1900s, people might have second thoughts and decide not to kill someone.

I believe Montgomery Ward

I believe Montgomery Ward closed down for good in 2000-2001, and not twenty years ago.. If you want the Regency Mall to become an outlet mall then find the private investor.. Private investors purchased the Regal Village theatre in the Augusta West Plaza, Fort Discovery, JB Whites warehouse on Ellis street, etc. I think Augusta needs to buy the property, and create multiple greenspaces, walking trails, baseball/softball fields, tracks, ponds, basketball goals, volleyball courts, bmx/skateboard parks, soccer fields, etc.. Depending on the scope of the investment you could draw regional and even national sporting events..

The Walmart on 15th street is an neighborhood market, and not similar to the store opening at Wrightsboro/North Leg..

Our speaker just said

Our speaker just said this...

Great news, America! Some of the dumbest people in the country are leading your nation, according to Speaker of the House John Boehner.

"We got some of the smartest people in the country who serve here, and some of the dumbest. We got some of the best people you'd ever meet, and some of the raunchiest. We've got 'em all," he said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.

WOW...like we didn't know THAT!!
(I bet the raunchiest are not the dumb ones either)

Well now...this kinda reminds

Well now...this kinda reminds me of a probe test some politicians want here...

CAIRO (AP) — An Egyptian military tribunal on Sunday acquitted an army doctor of an accusation of public obscenity filed by a protester who claimed she was forced to undergo a virginity test while in detention.

The country's revolutionary youth movement sees the claims of humiliating tests imposed on detained female protesters as one of the first indications that the generals who took over from Hosni Mubarak in February 2011 would continue the human rights abuses of the ousted president.

Samira Ibrahim, one of seven women who said they had been forced to undergo examinations to determine if they were virgins while detained by the military a year ago, won a civilian court ruling last year that affirmed the tests were taking place at military jails and ordered they be halted.

Harold sez this...about

Harold sez this...about predicting stuff

SAN FRANCISCO — A California preacher who convinced thousands of followers that the world would end has posted an online letter conceding he has no evidence of an impending apocalypse and will no longer predict global doom.

In a missive posted Thursday on his independent ministry's site, 90-year-old Harold Camping said he was asking for forgiveness for his sin in predicting Judgment Day, and has stopped trying to pinpoint future dates.

"We realize that many people are hoping they will know the date of Christ's return," Camping wrote. "We humbly acknowledge we were wrong about the timing."

Thakya for giving it up Harold...most of us knew better..:)

Now we do have weird news

Now we do have weird news sometimes....i wonder if this guy is any kin to that guy in S.C.??

A 77-year-old man in southern Oklahoma has been charged with a crime against nature in connection with an incident in which he allegedly violated a pig.

Jimmy "Hawkeye" Jeter, of Davis, was arrested Thursday after a camera allegedly caught him sexually assaulting a show pig. The incident occurred in an agriculture barn on property belonging to Davis Public Schools, police said.

According to court documents obtained by KFOR-TV, Jeter walked into the pig pen, "unzipped his pants, appeared to pull something out of his pants, then bent over" a female pig.

seenit, reguarding your 5:35, did the pig say no? if not, how do they know the pig was not a willing participant..........or maybe the pig was under age? that would explain it.

On another article I read

On another article I read this statement...

Man's search for meaning — whether in a Broadway penthouse or the darkest corner of hell — is the most basic building block of a successful life. Without a sense of purpose, many people will simply shrivel up and die, whether figuratively or, in some cases, literally.

We need a sense of purpose....amazing words...i might find some articles about that for future use.....this week I have to see the TAXMAN--get info....Dr visits....ooh it never stops.
