Rants & Raves

IN A STORY ABOUT the insertion of “military and global affairs” into a medical school and local college, neither Georgia Health Sciences University President Ricardo Azziz nor his quest for power is mentioned. Is he beginning to work behind the scenes? We’re told the excuse for this new connection of military, medical and college is to make it easier for ex-soldiers to fill out an entrance application. If a person can’t fill out an application, does he belong in college?

TO ALL OF THE female officers of Richmond County Sheriff Office: Why doesn’t one of you run for sheriff? We need a woman up there. They’ll straighten out the sheriff’s office. You’ve got my vote.

LEAVE THE STADIUM where it is and stop harassing the public about relocating it. Leave it and make improvements. It would cost less, and Columbia County residents don’t like to drive way downtown.

THEY TOOK AWAY all the beautiful trees and landscaping around Interstate 20 leading to Washington Road and into South Carolina. Now they have taken away our beautiful trees along Gordon Highway at Bobby Jones Expressway. The Garden City is becoming an asphalt and concrete jungle.

EVERY TIME YOU turn around there is something in the news about someone being murdered. Young males equate killing someone with stealing a cookie from a cookie jar. They don’t attach much gravity to the taking of another human life.

WHY ARE ALL THESE people walking around in their pajamas? Grocery store, post office, schools. I think something should be done about it. It is ridiculous.

PEOPLE, IF YOU like your cats more than you like people, keep them in your house at all times.

A NEW FEDERAL study added $50 mil­lion to the cost of deepening the port at Savannah. One, that $50 million does not exist in the federal treasury. Two, only modern government under Obama can throw around $50 million like it was peanuts. Until Americans wake up, see and stop the blatant crime committed by our “leaders,” we will continue to sink.

ISN’T MICHELLE Obama a stay-at-home mom?

Good morning to all my R and R peeps. What happened to the discussion tab? That makes it harder to follow discussions on various subjects.

I was told the discussion tab has to be re-built......in other words---don't hold your breath....
I think there are ways to silence big mouths......btw Sylvia .....where did your words go last Sunday.....
Sheriffs race-----politics downtown---vocal posters are not always popular.....
Keep making it tougher to navigate & soon you will have chirping---only the yes men will remain.....

Things that could go

Things that could go away....

Thumbs up/down----this isn't a teens popular contest
Spotted where/how----who cares...only the people in the pics...I never look at that...
Moving headlines----geeez....once is enough..
Repeated news---over & over...again once is enough..

Is there a method behind the madness...are some posters making a difference in local opinion??

Good Morning America. It is

Good Morning America.
It is so good to know you have a president with a heart of Gold as long as he is using your gold.

You just spent $20,000,000 to move members/supporters of Hamas, a
terrorist organization, to the United States ; housing, food, transportation, the whole enchilada.

HB 1388 PASSED
H.R. 1388 was passed, behind our backs. You may want to read about it...
It wasn't mentioned on the news... Just went by on the ticker tape at the bottom of the CNN screen.
The King SMCICBHO funds $20M in tax payer dollars to immigrate Hamas Refugees to the USA . This is the news that did not, and will not, make the headlines.
By executive order, The King has ordered the expenditure of $20..3 million in "migration assistance" to the Palestinian refugees and "conflict victims" in Gaza ..
The "presidential determination" (ain't that nice?) which allows hundreds of thousands of Palestinians with ties to Hamas to resettle in the United States , was signed and appears in the Federal Register.
Few on Capitol Hill, or in the media, took note that the order provides a free ticket replete with housing, transportation and food
allowances to individuals who have displayed their overwhelming support to the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) in the parliamentary election of January 2006.
Now we learn that he is allowing thousands of Palestinian refuges to move to, and live in, the US at American taxpayer expense.
These important, and insightful, issues are being "lost" in the blinding bail-outs and "stimulation" packages.

I will attempt to get some kind of discussion going today. New baseball stadium. Trayvon. Good things the Emperor has done.

Lady sheriff could work, but remember Pelosi was going to drain the swamp. Careful what you wish for.

At least the pajama's cover their (_!_)'s. But still look stupid.

Trees disappearing. countyman would be happy. It's a sign of progress.

Michele is a stay-in-other-countries-at-my-expense-mom.

We try, we really do. But when a kitty decides to bolt they are hard to stop. We catch 'em and toss 'em back in though.

I don't mind driving downtown and I am a CC resident.

Is it that the Discussion tab needs to be rebuilt because comments removed continue to stay there for a while?

I hardly ever used the tab, I usually check the topics that are of interest to me and don't really get excited over all the comments.
