Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

WAKE UP, AUGUSTA. The name “Medical College of Georgia” will be in Athens and we will be stuck with “Regents” or “regrets.”

RANT TO PEOPLE objecting to proper attire in church. If all you have to wear is Birkenstocks, a Masters golf shirt and Duckhead Bermuda shorts, then I say by all means go to church. If you have appropriate attire and you desire this to wear to church, then you are showing disrespect. Do you remember the phase “wearing your Sunday best”?

IT APPEARS THE LEFTISTS (Dems) in the U.S. Senate are softening the penalties for leaking confidential government secrets. How can they soften penalties for what used to constitute treason? And didn’t treason used to require a firing squad?

GEORGIA ARTS AND SCIENCES University (GASU) and Georgia Health and Sciences Univer­sity (GHSU) are the same except for “arts” in one title and “health” in the other. Is this a coincidence because otherwise it’s basically names that are alike? Certainly Dr. Azziz had no input in this decision. Yeah, right! This entire name change issue is totally needless and the expense will be in the millions. Augusta State University became a highly esteemed institute of learning under the leadership of Dr. William Bloodworth, and the growth of the campus has been outstanding. Who knows what the future holds for ASU?

MY MOTHER GRADUATED from the Junior College of Augusta in 1934. I graduated in 1972 from Augusta College. My son is a 2001 graduate from Augusta State University. The present ASU has gone through many changes during the years namewise and in growth but I still refer to it as Augusta College. The college was known as AC when I graduated and that’s the name I still prefer to call it. Guess I’m not good with change.

MY HEART GOES OUT to the family of Anthony Jones and especially to his mother, Janice Jones. What a tragic loss of this young man’s life at the hands of two lowlife thugs.

THE AD BY THE Obama campaign attacking Mitt Romney is shameless and sinks to a new low. Exploiting a man’s grief over the loss of his wife is disgraceful and totally out of line, but this is typical with anything associated with Obama. Blaming the death of this man’s wife on Romney is ludicrous and a vicious lie.

Some years ago, my husband

Some years ago, my husband spoke with someone who developed real estate in Chicago. He was told that developers were given the name of an intermediary who handled the bribes it took to get projects through the government bureaucracy.

Absolutely disgusting.

All these rants about what

All these rants about what folks wear to church, reminds me of an old Johnny Paycheck song. I think it was called, "The Outlaw's Prayer". ;

If you ever find/attend the perfect church, better not invite me.

How does one get a huge ego...

How can you spot it ......

has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)
is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)
requires excessive admiration
has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations
is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends
lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others
is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her
shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes

Well now....do we have anyone in Augusta with these traits.....maybe.

Serious subject

The majority of elementary schools had less than 70 percent of students pass math, science and social studies, with many below 50 percent passing.

This is sad for Richmond county.....the teachers face discipline problems with students all day & the teaching goes lacking.....is what the article says....you can't blame this all on the teachers...now can you.....what are the parents doing with the rest of the day....

A Wise Sales Rep...

I have a sales rep who takes those I work with and me out to dinner now and then. He goes all over GA-SC and does this in many towns. It's just part of a salesman's task and he let's his customers pick the restaurant. He said most people always pick an expensive place and those are invariably the ones with the worst food served in meager portions. He said after leaving those kinds of dinners he would always stop and at the gas station and get something to eat because he would be so hungry. You know there is something to that. The cheaper the restaurant the better the food.

About Richmond County Schools

About Richmond County scores.........The only two schools who do anything good have very tiny student populations and are magnet schools. The scores of the whole student population of the county is abysmal when compared to other places. I gave my thoughts of how to improve the situation on that thread.

I am not dressing for you. I am in church for God. He hasn't mentioned a dress code.

That isn't always true Riverman. Many times restaurants make up for mediocre food with huge portions. Most high end restaurants aren't there to simply fill up your belly.

R&R #3

I am not trying to start anything with our anti-Bible and anti-GOD people this morning, so don't come back with any of those asinine remarks some of you put out. Buuuutttttttttt, the Bible does say there would be those(leaders, judges, politicians, pastors, etc.) that would make wrong right and right wrong. So, there you go!!

About Ryans taxes

The Republican vice presidential candidate and his wife paid an effective tax rate of 15.9 percent in 2010 and 20 percent in 2011.

They paid $34,233 in taxes on an adjusted gross income of $215,417 in 2010, and paid $64,764 in taxes on an adjusted gross income of $323,416 in 2011

I would say that family is very frugal......nice home ---children aren't cheap to raise.......I like that.

Nice Diversion

The Democratic campaign and their propaganda arm --the mainstream media-- have shifted the discussion, which should be about how this administration has performed, to their opponent's taxes. Slick, considering our present Secretary of the Treasury's failure to pay was not an issue.

I dunno

... about the cheap food rule, but two of the best breakfast places in Augusta; the Sunrise Grill and Ruth's, do serve really good food at low prices and the service is good as well. Both are consistent, which is important. In fact, think I'll head on over there-- I have a sudden hankering for a pork chop and scrambled eggs, wheat toast with marmalade.

Seeya!

Taxes and such

One of the Emperor's adds points out that Romney paid 14% on income of $20,000,000. Do you realize that he paid $2,800,000? Now you have to ask how many of the don't pay any taxes he covered?

Imagine this ...you are eating at a restaurant and...

Atlanta police are looking for a pair of gunman who robbed seven people at the North Highland Pub in Inman Park late Monday.

The victims said the two men entered the bar at 469 No. Highland Ave. NE at about 11:30 p.m., pointed a gun at everyone inside and ordered the victims to place all of their valuables on the bar.

They ordered the bartender on duty to empty the drawer and they fled south on North Highland Avenue on foot with the night's receipts and the victims' valuables.

11Alive News reported they thieves left with about $400 cash, a laptop and several mobile phones.

Enough of this crap....we have to stop them......get tough/rough whatever it takes....

seeya later guys...

Romney's tax rate

What the dumb masses concerned with his taxes don't understand is that he had no earned income, it is all capital gains taxed at 15%. By the time he takes routine deductions it is 14%.
