LEE ANDERSON, you keep refusing to participate in debates and public forums. How can you expect residents to vote for someone who won’t appear in public? What are you afraid of?

IN A WORLD TODAY where so many of our youths are lost and can’t find their way, it is wonderful that the group called The Big Group is giving our youths a hope that will last forever, and that is Jesus.

WHY NOT COMBINE Hal­lo­ween and Election Day? Oh wait, would that be a conundrum or an anomaly or something like that? Yeah.

RANT FOR EVANS HIGH SCHOOL football coaches. It’s not fair that your boys put in three-hour practices and never hit the football field. These boys get pumped up every week, give their best in practice and just sit on the sidelines like they are watching a tennis match. It’s not fair!

I AM GLAD TO SEE the Cherry Tree Crossing barracks-style public housing complex is going to be demolished. People need, and deserve, to live a clean and safe environment, which the new complex will provide. Incidentally, now is the time to weed out the “bad apples.”

I WOULD HOPE LEADERS such as the Rev. Joseph Lowery would be promoting racial harmony and not inciting people to believe that the Republican Party is a party of racism. Now is the time to bring all people together to address the many issues facing us.

WE HAVE A PROBLEM with speeding dirt bikes and four-wheelers in the back of Belglade and Crawford Mill subdivisions in Columbia County. I know that complaints have been made about this. I have seen deputies come out on a couple of occasions, talking to the person who has been absolutely flying on a four-wheeler, sometimes with his toddler riding alongside on another. Obviously the gentleman is not getting the message.

HOW CAN FIVE escape the Augusta Youth De­velopment Campus? Looks like sloppy management continues to plague this facility. Let’s demand the high standards that are necessary to run a facility such as this by getting rid of the weak links!

WHAT DOES A medical school have to do with a local liberal arts college? Is the renaming of the merged colleges really just a way to start another fight, thus taking the public’s eyes off of the bigger scam of the merger itself?

No. People do not deserve anything but what they've earned.

"HOW CAN FIVE escape

the Augusta Youth De­velopment Campus?"

The word "campus" should give you a clue. We have a kiddie jail for what a half-century ago would have been acknowledged as hardened criminals. That's before the apologists and moral relativists convinced the weak minded to treat mother-grabbers and father-stabbers to playground level time-outs.

Please. This "reverend" --which I hold to be Ebonics for "race hustler"-- makes his living from the money that flows in by keeping discord alive and fueling racial resentment. Hoping for that is like hoping Exxon will champion a planet wide drilling moratorium.

Dirt bikes and 4 wheelers

Total waste of energy (gas) and money, not to mention noise pollution and the harmful effects of erosion due to unwanted tire ruts. Just so folks can go "Whee, look at me".

My daugter attended Augusta

My daugter attended Augusta State but received her nursing training at MCG. When she graduated it was from Augusta State, she was then employed as an RN for MCG.

The two schools work well together.

"People need, and deserve, to live a clean and safe environment"

Cherry Tree Crossing WAS clean and safe until the people there destroyed it.

Unpublished

Funny thing...yesterday I asked a poster to back up their baseless accusation, to which he replied that he wasn't going to do my research for me. Only in the liberal mind would it be MY job to back up someone else's accusations for them. I was told that it was "a tired and worn out tactic" to ask people to back up the accusations that they make. NO...what is tired and worn out is liberals who make baseless accusations and lies, then repeat them over and over until people start to believe them.

seenit..

...concerning your convention center remarks...I have it from a very VERY well placed source that the cancellation had nothing to do with the management agreement issues.
I haven't been given the real reason but, if true it's a complete sham for the PTB's to try to use this as a bargaining chip to force a poor agreement on the taxpayers.....

Fred Russell's involvement

Fred Russell's involvement getting this 250 person group to announce they were coming to the TEE and now backing out should be examined closely...including the remarks they are making as to why they backed out.

Remember the Zell Miller

Remember the Zell Miller interview with Chris Matthews when Zell talked about a duel with him? I bet you Matthews would be very careful with Lee Anderson. I think he is a little afraid of Georgia country boys.

Rant #6

The Rev. Joseph Lowery should be preaching the word of God and leave the politics to the politicians.

Devils Advocate Here

Hopefully, this will make some of you see how silly you sounded during Katrina.

1) Why did the Emperor allow the tunnels to be flooded?

2) Why did the Emperor allow the levees to be breached?

3) Why did the Emperor allow a fire to start during a rain storm that caused 50 or more homes to be destroyed?

4) Why weren't buses or other means of transportation provided to evacuate citizens?

5) For those that are stranded, where are the relief supplies?

What say you poor Obama supporters?

3 thumbs down on a statement

3 thumbs down on a statement that people should be responsible for backing up their own accusations. I shouldn't be surprised, given that liberals are staunchly against personal responsibility. I guess the government should back up their accusations for them?

I don't get it

When those young adults get up in the mornings and they have no job and they just hang out - who feeds them? Are they the ones that are robbing us? I was talking to a volunteer at one of our local Columbia Co churchs and she said they send bag's of food home every Friday so the little kids can have something to eat until they come back to school. Something is very, very wrong here - those young adults act like they have already put in their 30+ years and are in their retirement - just hanging out having a good time!

Why does the school have to send foot home to someone who goes home to a waiting EBT card?

I asked the same question

Answer: We don't know if the little kids eat on the weekend. We don't even know if the caregiver even shares it with them. We pray they do!

Good Morning America ****7 Days****

Is it possible the "Sandy" are the silent words of God being spoken to the self appointed all mighty King SMNCICBHO that he is much more powerful than what he thinks he is.
