Comments from readers:

I WAS LISTENING TO THE news, and they said which cooling stations were open for people without air conditioners or fans. Isn’t it a little ridiculous to tell them to go online and see the hours when the majority of people who need the cooling centers do not have Internet?

IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM at Applebee’s on Peach Orchard Road all you have to do is notify the manager and the problem will be taken care of. I recommend this place to anybody.

RANTS TO Richmond County Sheriff’s Office. Don’t be bullies with badges. It is brutality in Augusta. You need to learn to use Tasers instead. I won’t vote for anyone unless they agree to have Tasers instead of police brutality.

JOHN ROBERTS SHOULD resign from his U.S. Supreme Court duties. At minimum, he should resign from his duties as the chief justice.

I AM AN E EDITION subscriber and while I love the E Edition I also follow updates throughout the day. I however wish that as I’m reading the updates The Chronicle would lose the pop-up ads on the page. It is very annoying.

HAS ANYBODY FIGURED exactly who is behind Azziz?

FOUR NEW ORLEANS Saints players apparently accepted extra pay to maim opposing players. That’s gotta be a whole list of felonies. Yet they are only penalized by not being allowed to play for several games; and in so doing they scream THEY were denied justice.

BIG RANT HOW MANY PEOPLE waving the flag know they were made in China?

THERE ARE TOO MANY abuses of handicap parking spaces. A rave for Deputy Jack Rackliff for pursuing an illegal parking situation outside the “Y” on Broad.

ALWAYS SAD WHEN a leftist who has no argument starts calling sensible people names – “reactionaries” being one of their favorites.

A RAVE FOR Eisenhower Army Medical Center. I arrived at the Emergency Room recently with chest pains. The staff and doctors from Family Practice were absolutely outstanding! A first class hospital and staff. Sincere thanks! Keep up the good work!

Who is behind Azziz?

My guess would be Azzjz.

Flag - What is wrong with flying an American flag made in China on a flagpole bracket made in China? It is a symbol in case you didn't know.

Most Discussed

Okay, I call upon our R&R commenters to thwart the algorithm that manipultes the "Most Discussed" portion of the web site. Please click on the link below and let readers and the sheriff know that his whiny claims about no one being in charge of First Friday is completely wrong and dangerous.

Communicate

Please read all the comments on both pages and express your outrage that this thread is still not on the "Most Discussed" section.

@4 I totally agree on that one!

@5 I guess it doesn't take much to ANNOY you.

@9 THERE ARE TOO MANY abuses of ALL handicap parking spaces.

@10 Leftist aren't sensible people, what else do you expect them to do?

New T-Bonz

I would personally like to thank the Emperor for providing the 40-50 jobs at the new T-Bonz location. We all know the owners of the T-Bonz Restaurant Group have nothing to do with it since they didn't construct Bel Aire Road.

Welcome back CG

We passed through KC a couple of times last week. I know you communicate with Sarge fairly regularly. Let him know we are praying for him and keep us updated on his progress.

And a fine G'mornin' to SB, RM, T, SFB, WB, and the rest of the alphabet.

Have you ever use the truck stop at Oak Grove on I-70. That is less than a mile from the CIC's sister.

Something else to think about.

The community I grew up in does have a fire department. Something the Emperor loves to mention. Funny thing is nobody in that fire department gets paid. Not by the government or anybody. All volunteer. I assume they still have the annual BBQ which hopefully raises enough money to pay the bills for the fire station and keep the trucks maintained and ready to roll. I know when I was still living there all funds to keep us operational were provided by members of the community. What I would like to know is how many communities are protected by a volunteer fire company compared to municipal fire departments??? So again, thanks to the Emperor for his support. The government did build the roads we used to respond to fire calls.

Congressional Debates Were Good

I got a call about two thirds of the way through the debate, but my man, Wright McLeod, looked really good the part I saw. Sheffield did well, too. Anderson and Allen, weren't impressive in good ways, but what do I know?

Thanks RK

It seems the police are stirred up over the shooting downtown....we have had a lot of incidents in Atlanta around Ga Tech.......many students are robbed almost every week.....they broke into a dorm room last week & robbed.....more they get away with the more daring they get.

Congressman Anderson Questions Federal Reserve Chairman

I watched some of the Congressional questioning of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke as he explained the intricacies of a possible QE3 stimulus. Then last night I saw our local Republican Congressional debates. Somehow they came together in my mind and I wondered what it would be like if Congressman Lee Anderson were one of the questioners.

Mr. Burnakey,“So you run the bank, huh? I might be a country boy from Columbia County, Georgia, but I know lots of banker fellas and I bet I have more money in my wallet than you do. Come on let’s count it out right now.” (Lee opens his wallet and lays out three hundred dollar bills. He then sticks one in his coat pocket where everybody can see it. Bernanke smiles that way he does.) “How much you got? If anybody needs a little till payday tell them to call me. My number is 706-XXX-XXXX. I yield the rest of my time."

Work Time

For those that don't understand that means I have a JOB and pay taxes. That way you can fill your grocery cart with food and a case of beer. I was so happy to see that I paid for your food so that you would have enough money to pay for the beer. Yes, I really did see that happen last time I bought groceries.

Now to tick off the tree huggers and burn a 100 or so gallons of fossil fuel today. But remember, I am hauling the DISPOSABLE diapers you put on your babies butts.

Good day all.
