Rants & Raves

  • Follow News

I WATCHED THE final round of the PGA tournament on national TV. The city of Augusta was mentioned so many times in reference to the Masters Golf Tournament and Augusta National. Georgia Regents University does not incorporate any of Augusta’s identity. The president of GHSU needs to return to California, and perhaps he needs to take the Board of Regents with him.

MAKE IT A ‘TWO-FER,’ get rid of the idiotic new name and Azziz.

IF GRU NEEDS A new mascot, my dog speaks perfect GRR.

AZZIZ NEEDS TO GO. He doesn’t have the right attitude to live in the South. He just doesn’t understand that things mean a lot to us. We don’t just brush things or people off.

FREE THIS, FREE THAT. When will it end? I never took anything free in my life. I was off my butt earning what I and my family needed.

OBAMA’S UNELECTED WIFE puts out her own “rules” for schools and diets. They call it a “meal pattern.” What the heck is a meal pattern and who gave the federal government authority over what Americans eat?

AUGUSTA POLICE get a big rant from this out-of-towner. I went one block on Jones Street, from one store to another, without a seat belt and was given a $15 ticket by a motorcycle cop sitting on the corner behind a tree. You would think with all the shootings, drug problems and all the crime in downtown Augusta, the police could find better use of their officers. Maybe it is time for a new sheriff in town.

STALLONE WAS NEVER a handsome man, but he has not aged well.

HOW MANY CAPTAINS and lieutenants does one sheriff’s department need? Enough is enough already; put them back on the street.

HAVE YOU SEEN Usain Bolt’s quote from the Olympics? “I’m now a legend. I’m also the greatest athlete to live.” Ha-ha. What a maroon.

RAVES FOR Ed Turner and Number 9. The show was great, and they played for almost five hours. We really got our money’s worth. See you next time.

MY WIFE IS A SCHOOL secretary, and because of the furloughs she is making just about minimum wage as a main secretary in a school. And that is after being there for almost 30 years.

Seatbelts

Quit griping "out-of-towner", at least you were not hauled off to jail for trying to buy Masters tickets.

I do agree with

I do agree with out-of-towner, officers could sure put their focus on real crime. There's an abundance of it out there.

Seat Belt

Out of towner, that cop might have saved your life, you can get in a wreck anywhere. Wear your seat belt.

Plus, breaking a law is breaking a law.

You know, in regards to "free

You know, in regards to "free this, free that"- I was lucky enough to start college in California, where there was free college tuition, and then after coming to Augusta, I received a Pell grant to finish college.

I cannot begin to describe the advantages, both tangible and intangible, that my college education has done for me.

Sometimes "free this, free that" is a good thing. It was for me.

Do you realize graduates from the Georgia Regents University School of Medicine will be GRUSOM alumni?

How did it happen

The Emperor made sure there was coverage of our troops leaving Afghanistan. Since we pulled out how did 12 service men get killed in Afghanistan this month? Surely the Emperor didn't make a big show of pulling out for political purposes.

Now the important stuff

Good morning everybody. Especially all my girlfriends. Trouble, seenit, KSM, and the rest. Mornin' to the guys too.

And as usual I have a special task for KSM... hug a LEO for me. LEOs' do not get the credit they deserve. Out of towner complained about getting a ticket from a motorcycle cop when he/she admitted breaking the law. Funny he/she forgot to mention Officer Paugh stopping to aid a motorist and getting killed for his compassion.

Canadiens

I was in Boone, NC over the weekend and talked to a group of Canucks down for the Bristol race. When they found out I was from Augusta, the conversation centered there for the next 10 minutes; all about the Masters of course. They said golf is very popular in Canada, so virtually anyone you ask would relate to the name "Augusta".

The receiver of this

The receiver of this generosity needs to check their pay stub (if they are one of the lucky Americans with a job) and they will see that it has a deduction called "income tax" (FICA.)
That money is going toward all the "free" stuff and watch it keep increasing, and drastically unless more workers are hired to share the burden.

Is it legal to unbuckle for

Is it legal to unbuckle for just one block? :-)
The things people complain about. I saw a car pulled over this morning when he came to a rolling stop at at 4X.
Yep. I'll bet he was mad too.

I don't think that those on

I don't think that those on the receiving end of gov't freebies realize every penny of it was taken from someone else under threat of prison if they didn't pony up. But then again, maybe they do approve of legalized armed robbery.

Stallone

Many years ago there was an x-rated movie that had Stallone in it during his unknown acting days. He wasn't a "big" actor in that either; another thing doctors can't help with.

"-or have a daddy in the

"-or have a daddy in the house to help pay for those younguns!"

It should be a pre-requisite to name the daddy before getting a dime of gov't assistance. Prove it with DNA testing if necessary. Hold him accountable for child support first, THEN assist if necessary.

These little punks spreading their seeds around would think twice about fathering children if they knew they would be accountable.

IAD ... I said the same thing

IAD ... I said the same thing the other day ... first paternity test is on "we the people" ... but if it comes back that is not the babies daddy then the babies momma has to pay back the fee (even if it means community service) and she has to pay for the next paternity test. No money until we have a babies daddy to be held accountable. I bet that epidemic would end real fast!!!
