Comments from readers:

ONE REASON THEY didn’t pick University of Augusta for a name is if the regents decide to move the university in the future, it will be much easier if it doesn’t have Augusta’s name in it.

I JUST FINISHED reading the story about the gun store owner who stopped people from robbing his store. I don’t really see what the big deal is with what kind of gun he used or how big his clip was. The fact that he stopped three criminals from stealing guns to put out on the street to kill honest people is what is important, not what he used to do it.

WILLIE NELSON TEXTED Randy Travis and said, “Son, if you are going to smoke, learn to keep your clothes on.”

HUGE RAVE FOR North Augusta law enforcement for taking down the drug dealers in that neighborhood. I have been trying for 10 years to get Richmond County law enforcement to take down a known drug dealer in my south Augusta neighborhood.

I THINK THE PEOPLE OF Augusta need to get rid of Dr. Azziz. He has done nothing but change things since he has been there. He doesn’t listen to anybody. He does what he wants to do. The next thing you know he will have moved MCG completely out of Augusta to some big city that suits him.

THANK YOU, MR. MORRIS, for standing up and speaking out to Dr. Azziz. It is about time some of the officials raised their voice in Augusta.

SCHOOL REGISTRATION. OH, WHAT a sight to see. They come in with manicures, pedicures, tattoos all over their bodies, braided hairdos, and they expect to get free lunch, free fees, free everything. Something is definitely wrong with this picture.

REMEMBER, HARLEM CITY HALL, we pay your salary. You should be nicer and more polite to people.

THERE NEED TO BE changes at the Richmond County Board of Education. Morale is at an all-time low due to these furloughs.

THANK YOU, MR. MORRIS, for standing up for Augusta.

DON’T THEY REALIZE if students graduate from the Georgia Regents University School of Medicine, they will have graduated from GRUSOM? Obviously they haven’t thought this through.

The gunstore shooter

... did good. All three felons down. Now compare that with the NYC cops -- you know, the only ones who could or should be trusted with guns, according to liberal catechism-- who, as it turns out wounded all nine civilians who were injured. Collateral damge isn't usually defined as shooting nine civilians to get the one bad guy.

And, pretty much, they get it, don't they?

Standing up for Augusta

Well, what did you think Mr Morris was going to do, go against the sentiments of the community? Of course not. He has the name "Augusta" in his paper so why should he not support the "Augusta" name for the local university? It is like the movie "The Godfather", nothing personal, it's just about "business".

Someone posted the times and location the other day. I am certain that you can do a Google search and find it. I am not in a rush to see the movie. I read his book and from other sources pretty well know what it is about. I am pretty certain I know what Obama is all about from research on him.

About Sylvia's column, I

About Sylvia's column, although I'm getting a little tired of her plays, I wouldn't do it because I'm having too much fun with the comments. Plus, I have a day job. So it's yours.

Typical government welfare program.

"They come in... and they expect to get free lunch, free fees, free everything."

It's easier to hand free stuff out to everyone than it is to actually limit it to those who really need it. It's just like all of our other "welfare" programs. We give free stuff to 100 to take care of the 3 or 4 who really need it. We teach the kids that the government is the great provider and we teach the parents that it's not their responsibility to take care of their kids. It's no wonder we have become a government assistance program socialist country.

Quit feeding the kids. When they get to school, ask the class how many of them did not get breakfast. Give any that raise their hand some kind of nutrition bar and issue an arrest warrant for child neglect for their parent(s). If the parent(s) are drawing any kind of public assistance (like food stamps) for the kids, also charge the parent(s) with fraud. There ARE other ways to do things besides the current mentality of "It's too much trouble to fix the problem so let's let the working taxpayers provide it." I think the schools have conceded the fact that they cannot seem to educate the kids so they have become a glorified free cafeteria and babysitting service to justify their existence.

Make GOB Laugh Some More

I was actually asked by another place to write a little something for them now and then. I asked if I would get paid and they said, nope, but they wouldn't kick me off for what I say. They know me well. Heh, heh, heh.

Call the Guv this week

Call the governor at 404-656-1776

If you are unhappy & you know it...call him....

Find out if he would like some of those mountains in N Ga renamed.....like The Regents Hill........The Regents Slope.....Regents Bump...his neck of the woods.....Yonah mountain could become Regents Yonah......Bald mountain could be Bald Regents Hill......
Ole Zell wouldn't allow it...that's for sure!

Do away with school kitchens.

Do away with school kitchens. Where did we get this idea public schools had to cook meals for lunch....and breakfast and provide them for free in many cases? Bring what you want to eat from home. It's a long step to even believe the government is supposed to provide public schools, much less food.
