Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

ALL OF SHIRLEY KENNY’S suggestions really applied to Azziz. It is too bad she can’t stay in Augusta to help him straighten it out some more. Perhaps she could help us straighten out our county commissioners.

I WOULD LIKE TO see in The Chronicle tomorrow that Scott Dean has been released from prison and the prosecutors are being investigated.

THERE IS AN insect going around in the CSRA and I have it. It is like scabies. I think the CSRA need to know about this. It is very contagious.

EVERY DAY GOING HOME from work I travel Greene Street heading to River Watch Parkway toward the overpass ramps. Maybe one time in the last eight months has the light at the intersection crossing Broad Street been green when I come upon it. I have traveled over all the roads in Richmond County numerous times in 28 years and have never seen a light that is NEVER green when you get to the intersection. What is the deal here traffic engineering?

I AM TIRED OF Richmond County sheriffs playing games on the roads. They do not use their turn signals; they go slower than the speed limit to see if the cars will follow. This is dangerous and foolish. They also “zoom” by when you are doing the speed limit thinking they can go 70 in a 55 zone. They just abuse their privileges. They need to be more responsible.

IF THERE ARE KNOWN crack houses why can’t the fire department burn them down, clear off the lot, neighbors come together and have a community garden? Change blight to right.

SIX MORE GEORGIANS killed in Afghanistan. Bin Laden is dead. Declare victory and get out. NOW!

RANT TO the Georgia DOT. How many must be killed on Highway 56 before y’all actually widen the road, instead talking and planning to do it?

I SEE THE Richmond County Sheriff’s Office is spending our money out of town to purchase 40 vehicles and didn’t even give local dealers the opportunity to bid.

THE MEMBERS OF the Richmond Board of Education need to be replaced. While it’s unfortunate that the superintendent’s medical condition has prevented him from performing, the priority of children in Richmond County schools should come first.

The Hwy 56 Death trap rant

is a question I have asked a dozen times over the years or about about 23 deaths ago. If you are using the figures collected and published by the AC last year.

Sheriff Roundtree.

Sir:
The RCSO increased traffic patrols are helping, and we thank you for that.

But is it possible for the South Side can get the Radar Speed Trailer hauled out here South of Tobacco Rd. for a few days a month?

How does this happen

"Give me some money or I will shoot your baby.."

We didn't have much as younguns growing up in south Augusta but the thought of killing ANYTHING NEVER entered our mind....how did this come about in the world of today??

Can we even explain this thinking....is it the culture that others OWE you something?

Do I see a difference

WOW...what a loaded question...

Let me see if I do...well now....when I lived in 30906 in Richmond county in the 70s.....we had a nice grocery store almost on every other block....we had a huge Regency Mall with every kind of clothing store....we had some decent restaurants too.......BUT NOW, that has changed.....can YOU tell me what happened....please don't be pc when you tell it either....
We have grown a generation of gimmie kids....they don't have a clue what a job is....they don't know what respect for elders even means...they trash the schools & punch the teachers.....I am so sick of the crap & to think the tax dollars are going to REPRODUCE more punks with the same attitude.......do I see a difference...heheh...you bet your sweet fanny I do.....

We will either turn this around or we all go down the drain with them.....we have to forget the pc policy of today & DO something about it.....education stinks....the jails are bursting...what a difference & oh how i'm disgusted with it......get mad & report if you want....we don't have to wait for another country to attack us...we are doing this to ourselves....every stinking day..

btw...I will give thanks to Roundtree because I think the man does GETIT......& will try to change it.

Good Morning "Good Joke" America

Woman: Is there a problem, Officer?
Officer: Ma’am, you were speeding.
Woman: Oh, I see.
Officer: Can I see your license please?
Woman: I’d give it to you but I don’t have one.
Officer: Don’t have one?
Woman: Lost it 4 times for drunk driving.
Officer: I see…Can I see your vehicle registration papers please.
Woman: I can’t do that.
Officer: Why not?
Woman: I stole this car.
Officer: Stole it?
Woman: Yes, and I killed and hacked up the owner.
Officer: You what?
Woman: His body parts are in plastic bags in the trunk if you want to see.

The Officer looks at the woman and slowly backs away to his car and calls for back up. Within minutes 5 police cars circle the car. A senior officer slowly approaches the car, clasping his half drawn gun.

Officer2: Ma’am, could you step out of your vehicle please!

The woman steps out of her vehicle.

Woman: Is there a problem sir?
Officer2: One of my officers told me that you have stolen this car and murdered the owner.
Woman: Murdered the owner?
Officer2: Yes, could you please open the trunk of your car, please.

The woman opens the trunk, revealing nothing but an empty trunk.

Officer2: Is this your car, ma’am?
Woman: Yes, here are the registration papers. The officer is quite stunned.
Officer2: One of my officers claims that you do not have a driving license.

The woman digs into her handbag and pulls out a clutch purse and hands it to the officer. The officer snaps opens the clutch purse and examines the license. He looks quite puzzled.

Officer2: Thank you ma’am, one of my officers told me you didn’t have a license, that you stole this car, and that you murdered and hacked up the owner.
Woman: Bet you the lying bastard told you I was speeding, too!

about the babys killing

But it’s the accused killers who are to blame, neighbors said, and what makes it even harder to understand is their ages.

At first, Anderson said, she was sad when she thought about “children killing children.” Then someone sent her a link to the suspect Elkin’s Facebook page (since taken down) on which he boasted, using a racial slur, that he and his friends would “turn your neighborhood into a murder scene.”

“That infuriates me,” Anderson said. “How can he be so callous? How can you have a family of your own and be raised by a mother and have no regard for human life? He was looking for it. When he left with a gun, he had every intention of shooting somebody.”

palmetto..this leaves a nasty taste in my mouth...how bout you?

seenit, you asked a question. I responded with the argument that you were comparing apples and oranges. Now, you bring some grapes in to try to justify your initial incongruent observation. Sorry, not going to play that game.

Not a game to me

coldbeer put this on another thread....this is where the game is played...daily & with tax dollars...

Richmond County Growth

Could it be from Baby Mama's and Crack Daddy's having babys that everyone else is supporting. Just the other day, I heard one Baby Mama to another Baby Mama whose children were running wild in a convenience store as she was buying energy drinks, chips and junk food with an EBT card that if she has two more children she'll get $2000.00 a month in EBT to spend!!!

$2000 a month to spend

Just have a few more babies & get the money....does that sound incompatible to our society today....are we not paying some to have babies? Some who could care less about the well being of the child they produce....

Some of the oldsters have worked a LIFETIME to get $2000 a month in retiremnet/soc sec....now our tax dollars are going for THIS!

Call it whatever you please...oranges--apples-grapes.....I call it nuts!

I'm trying to lighten up.....

Mother: Jack, I'm sorry I slept with someone that is not your
dad, 23 years ago. And that person is your real father.

Jack: Mum, what rubbish! How am I to deal with this?!
You should be hanged.

Mother: I am sorry he was my first love and I could not marry him...
because we are of different religion. He is on the phone at the moment
and wants to speak with his son for the first time ever.

Jack: No I am speaking to no one.

Mother: Please don't be so upset, Just talk to him.

Jack: Ok, I will give him a piece of my mind! Hello

Caller: Morning Son, I am Bill Gates . I am your real father.

Jack: Dad! Dad!! Dad!!! Thank God! Ohhhhhh Thank God!!!!!!
Love you so much Dad!!!!! I’ve been looking for you for so long.

We Need To Get....

....out of the catfighting business and back into the business of teaching students. There are, obviously, way too many Administrators spending way too much time infighting and worrying about who likes whom.

Teach students the basics and stop backstabbing and catfighting.
