Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

I ENJOY GOING downtown on First Friday. However, I notice that all the police do is ride around the blocks or park in a corner with the lights flashing. If they actually got out of their cars more and walked the sidewalks, their presence would be more noted.

A RAVE FOR Bill Turner and his staff at Toner Charge in North Augusta.

RANTS ARE DIRECTED to the T-SPLOST creators and promoters who push for each new sales tax which adds to the crushing cumulative tax burden upon us.

THANK GOODNESS FOR the person who discovered a 4-year-old girl in a car in this sweltering heat. You saved that child’s life. God bless you!

RAVES TO TIM TEBOW, the NFL player, a fine person indeed. People say all these hateful thing about him, but he has Jesus with him. He has a wonderful foundation. I wish him well.

RANT FOR MAYOR Deke. You can’t protect us downtown on First Friday. How are you going to protect us from those little gangbanger wannabes if you put a ballpark down there? Now do you understand why we don’t want a stadium downtown?

RONNIE STRENGTH, how about for First Friday we do what the NRA wants to do and just arm everybody? That ought to make it safer.

I’VE HAD IT WITH animal abuse and neglect! Anyone who knows of something that is happening or not happening to an animal, like no water or food, or shelter or abuse is going on, if you do not report it and follow up, you are guilty, too!

HERE’S A RANT to the wife of the married man: Blame him. The decision was all his and while he was not strong enough to endure your wrath, at the end of the day I refuse to believe that he is in love with you.

MANY OF THE commenters on The Chronicle are so hateful and cynical. I don’t know how they live with themselves. I guess it makes them feel better to spread hatred. Why does The Chronicle give them a venue for this?

TO DEKE AND ALL Augustans: Please do not feel intimidated by a small group of Wisconsin heathens who don’t like prayer breakfasts. It’s none of their business. They should just be ignored.

Chronicle commenters

Yes, I agree. Many are hateful and cynical but it is for a purpose. The Department of Defense has chosen the Augusta Chronicle web site as a testing ground for a secret (shhhh!!) unit of special forces who will be an elite fighting and governing unit to protect us! Vote Republican!!!!!!

What about the points...

Some ask what happens to the points ....esp. at night while we sleep...

We are in some kind of military test of the mind...(Ft Gordon Intelligence)....like mice in a maze....they are testing our skills of accepting a fantasy world of HIGH & then crashing down to the low depths of despair.......feeling less than desirable---desperate to bring the #s up again.......any way we can....even making us put crazy posts on here.....making us turn on each other....
Well now....it ain't gonna work!

And about Riverman

Some have sent me questions about RM....wanting to know if he is more than one guy posting.......well yes & No...
He does have a clone & the clone usually posts at night hours....they are almost the same with info......but the clone does get mouthy & disrespectful at times....well let us just say....he gets BAAD....& sometimes gets River tossed.....
The real RM goes to the pool with a cool drink....listens to his favorite radio program in the afternoon....that is when the clone comes on here & does his sly badness....:):)

hahaha...oh boy

Create a New County...

http://www.ajc.com/news/georgia-politics-elections/lawmaker-wants-to-cre...

Some have been thinking of creating a new county...hey I'm talking about North Fulton not South Augusta....even though---heheh
This is some info....not easy to do..but very much needed at times....the reasons are the same as South Augusta---pay for less & then pay some more...
If the counties in North Ga. could combine---like Towns & White-etc....it could make room for changes....but hey....mountain folk don't like outsiders telling them what to do.....so good luck.

The perception of commenters

The perception of commenters has a lot to do with which side of the comment you are on. You love us when we are on your side, not so much when we're on the other side.

Embarrassing We Have a Democratic Congressman

It's embarrassing we have a Democratic Congressman in John Barrow representing us right here in the CSRA. Heck, he even lives here among us. But he must keep a low profile. He is never seen at any public events or in the media. Where does he even live?

Can we please elect a Republican who can beat him. It looks to me like that's Wright McLeod although Maria Sheffield is not bad either.

"MANY OF THE commenters on

"MANY OF THE commenters on The Chronicle are so hateful and cynical. I don’t know how they live with themselves. I guess it makes them feel better to spread hatred."

I would be honored if I knew I was classified as one of those "Hateful & Cynical"

As far as living with myself, I feel real good that I am doing my part in trying to save this once great country from it's self destruction by providing the real truth and not lies and propaganda.

Good Saturday morning :) ...

Good Saturday morning :) ... Gotta get some coffee in me quick. Our son phased up in less than three weeks & he gets a day pass ... so I have to go pick him up around 9am. This should be interesting since I've only been on post about three times in my entire life!

I never pay attention to my points. I figure if some people had their way mine would be wayyyyy in the RED. I would get the ole thumbs down if I simply posted "I love God" ... so those points really mean NOTHING to me.

Dang ICL you're right!

Cobalt George must be the Chronicle's secret Pet. Over 14,000 points! Way to go CG!!!

Ok Dichotomy I'll make you feel better.
You are the worst troublemaker I've ever seen! You create chaos and horrible insults whenever you comment! I don't know how you sleep at night. You should be ashamed of yourself for all the trouble you start on these stories!
There, Are you feeling better now?

Hateful And Cynical Commentors...

I kind of agree with the Rant. I have wondered the same thing at times, but then I remind myself of the First Amendment. Why, just yesterday a poster was wishing others (those who disagree with him) would hurry up and die. His post was allowed to stand as, Constitutionally, it should have been.
