Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

THANK YOU TO ALL the people who helped make it so hard for me to get my driver’s license renewed after 40 years. What did I ever do to you?

FOR GENERATIONS Augustans grieved the demolition of the majestic mahogany and brass Union Train Station. Thanks be to God that Sacred Heart Cultural Center was spared the wrecking ball. Be advised, Dr. Azziz, you will never understand or be a part of “our town.” Restore Augusta’s name to its rightful place.

YOU KNOW HOW YOU can tell if someone is a Democrat? He thinks he can say what he wants while protesting your right to do the same.

A RANT FOR the misguided people who continue to waste time worrying about President Obama’s birthplace. I don’t care where he came from. It’s where he currently resides that needs to be dealt with.

RAVES AND MORE Raves for Windsor at The Augusta Chronicle, who walked me right through the All-Access Process. She also has the sweetest personality, perfect for the job she does.

I, FOR ONE, support Chick-fil-A and Mr. Cathy now and plan to in the future. For those of you who seem to have a problem with this, I suggest that you not patronize this establishment. There are several businesses that support causes that I do not believe in; therefore, I do not do business with them.

THE BOARD OF REGENTS’ attorney stated that “regent” is too general for trademark protection. Yet he did not address the perception of conflict under trademark protection the “Regent” will create. Therefore, in order not to acknowledge that they were misled, they will waste untold amounts of taxpayer money on a needless legal battle.

I AM 78. I HAVE never been asked to show my Social Security card. I have no clue where my original card is. I will be showing them my enlistment papers and discharge papers from the Air Force, which does have my Social Security number on it. How many people my age or younger have their original Social Security cards? Good luck to the people who find themselves in a real mess.

SYLVIA COOPER, I enjoy reading your articles. Keep up the good work. Please run for mayor. As a matter of fact, you need to run for sheriff.

CGEE, when I inherited my

CGEE, when I inherited my farm with a very old house on it, I went through the papers left by the family over the years. I found things like you describe. It was an unusual family because of 5 children, there were only 2 grand kids. Another male and myself. So their "important papers" had a way of ending up back at the farm when they died. They were all in this old big trunk. I looked through them and couldn't decide what to do. They had full lives as represented by the papers, but they were gone. I debated what to do with them, but finally decided I'd leave them right there in the old place. Like I said, they were gone.

For those who think adding

For those who think adding the state to the name of a college gives it more prestige look at Florida Atlantic or Florida Whatever as I call them. UGA plays them today in a joke game. Think the state name worked for them? Even Azziz said he thought the other Florida Whatever (International) was an offshore school. Of course he doesn't know a whole lot about anything except gynecology and abstract art.

Maybe if you didn't insist on driving in the passing lane because 1....You're gonna turn left 65 miles up the road or, 2. You're in the passing land doing UNDER the posted speed limit.

Please remember: "Passing Lane," means just that! It's for PASSING!!!!!!

RK, if you really want to get Trouble in the mood then let her see you doing the cleaning. Men cleaning the house is porn for women. Oh, and wear an apron and nothing else.

Shucks

I was hoping that UL–Monroe would pull it off. Well, at least they gave Auburn a scare. It might drag Auburn down in the polls a few slots.

Football

While channel surfing I stumbled on a game between FIU and UCF.

Yeah, naming universities for states instead of cities really increases national and international recognition. We should be grateful to Dr. Azziz for blessing us with the name Grooo.
