Rants & Raves

GHSU PRESIDENT Ricardo Azziz needs to take a cultural sensitivity enlightenment class from either MCG or ASU. He doesn’t understand the South.

I WISH EVERYONE in Augusta would see the long-term objective of the Board of Regents and associated friends. Their goal is to move the entire system to Athens. One of the things that will make it easier is the way the name is structured. If the name has Augusta at the end they will simply drop Augusta and Georgia Regents University will end up being what they have now – mission accomplished! Good try, and thanks for trying Save the A, folks, but they still came out ahead.

A HUGE RAVE to the organizers of the Augusta Photo Festival. Great classes and tips by professional photographers and a great way to network with other hobbyists.

THANKS TO ALL the wonderful folks who worked so hard to Save the A. I would rather have had the University of Augusta, but I can accept and live with Georgia Regents University Augusta. The name change was the right thing to do. God is good all the time.

WHY DO SO many Georgia drivers seem to think the rules do not apply to them? This past week I twice witnessed an ambulance with lights blinking, sirens going and horn blowing attempting to navigate an intersection and at least two vehicles crossed in front of them. These incidents occurred at Wheeler Road and Marks Church and later at Berckmans Road and Washington Road. A huge rave to the Gold Cross drivers for their driving skills in avoiding a collision.

I TRAVEL ATOMIC ROAD frequently. It is extremely horrible to witness deer being ripped open and processed on the main highway in plain sight for all to see. You can’t help but notice it.

GOODWILL OF AUGUSTA is building a chef and hotel management-type school. Maybe they can run the TEE Center? At least they should have a chance to try to run it.

Most of us already do.

Getting ready to call it a day. Looking out my upstairs window I can see stars, so I guess the sky is still there.

Good Morning All

Have lowered and encased our American Flag. Will protect is the best way I can.

And Yes RA, the sky is still there and will always be there. It's that dark cloud at the horizon that has this Great Nation in fear. You may not see it because you only look at the bright star at night and the shining sun in the day. It is your holly king that has brainwashed you to pay no attention to the horizon.

Why Is It

that the majority of Liberals SCDK lovers on this AC blog hide behind a Green Marshmallow Avatar? Are they ashamed of showing their face or feelings?

RA...."I can see stars, so I

RA...."I can see stars, so I guess the sky is still there."

Yep, the sky is still there but RC is short 160 good paying jobs, nationally companies are announcing layoffs left and right due to Obamacare, Petraeus is participating in the Obama administration Benghazi coverup, and Hillary is leaving the country to keep from testifying. But that's okay.....everybody chill and take a free birth control pill.

#1-You mean the culture of the WASP'S
Unpublished

White Anglo Saxon Protestant Irish and Scots-Irish. The "folks" who came here in the early 1700's. The culture of staunch self reliance, self defense, hard working, thrift (now there a word that has disappeared), personal dignity, Godly living, taxpaying and pride of individual accomplishment. That CULTURE. The culture that denied the Protestant Work Ethics.

That is a evil culture that has never produced anything worthwhile. It was used to get things going and then discarded. There may be a reference to it in the Smithsonian?

Frog Hollow was the area around what is now University Hospital. Even today, the water backs up when it rains, and we can see why the frogs would like it.

Thanks Rebellious

for the summit meeting. It was a very pleasant and friendly day.
Meeting old friends and new ones is something I enjoy. If you think you can vision what a keyboard personality is and looks like, you will never come close. To meet in person will provide a greater picture and understanding of what a good person really is.

And Reb, like B4 said, your Butts were damn good. She will be sorry that she didn't have the chance to savor your butts.

Many Thanks

To all who attended the Augusta Chronicle Posters Summit today. What an honor to meet and talk with the authors of great comments, ideas and criticisms on the everyday news others simply read and ignore. Pictures of attendees will be sent to General Petraeus in case he needs a good defense team. Roscoe thanks all for the leftovers and especially to CGee for removing a parasite. I did notice a strange, low flying airplane, possibly a drone while we were deep in planning. Either a recon snapping pics or an attempted group assassination attempt, the former may have been successful, but the latter was not. Did any of you ever thinkit would be possible to have over 50 people in attendance? I sure didn't!
