Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

WHATEVER THE Augusta college/med school name is, now they’re claiming they will make things better for students with “enhanced campus life.” Schools exist to educate and not for “campus life.”

WHY IS EVERYBODY trying to blame President Obama for all the problems in this nation? It has been hundreds of years. He can’t be held responsible for the country’s issues and problems. These people ranting about the president need to be president and see what they would do.

TEARING DOWN THE River Glen Apartments will not solve the problem. It is not the buildings; it is some of the people who live there and the visitors. They would just move on to another spot. The people who live there need to do something about the drug problem.

IT IS AWFUL THAT young men had nothing better to do with their lives than plan to murder an 81-year-old disabled person. Vengeance is mine, says the Lord, but it would be mine too to get them the same way they got him.

THAT TEACHER IN Idaho should have her face magic markered and then be fired. There is no excuse; you don’t do that to kids.

I HAVE LIVED IN the area almost 25 years. I have always wondered who buys or pays for these turkeys that the Brown family gives out. Does it come out of their own pockets, or do they hit up the merchants for donations?

GAZANS BLAME Israel for “miserable living conditions” in Gaza, but the fault lies with themselves. Muslim manipulators moved in when Israel gave Gaza to the Palestinians. They immediately destroyed any semblance of civilized living, thus the little guys believed the lie that their plight was the fault of Israel.

FOR THE RANTER who voted for Obama because he cares for Medicare: Did you care about Medicare when Obama took $76 million out to spend on his pet projects?

RUSH LIMBAUGH LEAD the Republican Party? Why not? He can spout rhetoric with the best of them.

I PRAY THAT everyone has a safe holiday season. Wouldn’t it be great if everyone who bought alcohol or illegal drugs would have to donate $5 to a food bank of their choice?

Yes yes...we know that....but they still want to play with our neighborhoods.....ya see if they see a good clean upstanding group of folks .....they THINK throwing in a group of lower rent--troubles-problems will spice up the dull life of the upstanding group.....& soon it does just that...
And that way we "all" can enjoy the police sirens & drug activity......well that happens DOESN'T IT???

About the Lame R and R's

From bottom to top:

The way booze is taxed you are already donating 5 bucks to others when you buy a bottle.

Rush Limbaugh…I never saw a fat guy who wasn’t jolly.

Obama only took $76 million?

I remember the Gaza Strip on maps when I was growing up. It was stripped because both sides claimed it. Not sure what that means, but it can’t be good.

About the Brown turkeys. I’m surprised there’s not a lawsuit over who owns the turkeys with Tomi Rae Hynie showing up.

They didn’t magic mark your face when I was in school because we didn’t have them back then. If they rubbed the red crayon on me, I’d probably have fingernailed it off and eaten it.

About murdering the 81 year old, there should be an age limit.

The people and not the buildings causing the trouble post commenter obviously didn’t see Poltergeist.

The rant about people ranting about Obama saying the ranters should be president and see what they would do. I don’t think I’d be effective in an office much above town council in Ludowici.

The top rant about schools not existing for campus life obviously never wore only duct tape while playing beer pong after exams.

I am ignoring the bullies on here - It's one thing to have an opinion, but altogether another to always be on the attack.

"Wouldn’t it be great if everyone who bought alcohol or illegal drugs would have to donate $5 to a food bank of their choice?"

What an asinine statement!

1. Implying illegal drugs and alcohol are in the same category.
2. Ignoring that alcohol is heavily taxed with the proceeds going to government operations which, you guessed it, give to the needy.

River Glen

My buddy has run/owned/done pest control for the 40 years I've known him, so I've learned a lot just by osmosis.

One of those things I've learned is that if you have a place infested with cockroaches, they just move next door if you treat the building. You have to treat all of the buildings in proximity if you want to eradicate them, then put out exclusionary treatments to keep them from coming back.

River Glen is NOT PUBLIC HOUSING.

What is the manageent company doing to solve a few of these problems? Have they tried reaching out to the schools in the area?

Do they even care?

Turkeys

The Brown family has a foundation that you can contribute to that goes toward the purchase of turkeys, toys, and a music school for young musicians, among other things. I saw the young musicians at the Westobou Festival and they were outstanding. A very worthwhile foundation, in my opinion, and it is headed-up by the lovely and talented Deanna Brown.

@seenit

I also appreciate the comments from the wide variety of posters who take the time to share what they have on their minds. Sometimes a "snarky" comment or two will slip by the moderators but overall I think Sean has done a great job of cleaning this place up.
Sometimes folks do get easily offended when things get too personal though.

Some different R & Rs

slipped into the mix. First suggestion I've seen that we should try being President for a day. Might be nice, but don't think I could stomach seeing Michelle in the morning....(shudder)

Seenit...my lip was already poking out when I first read your list. Then you put a big ole smile on my face.
