Rants & Raves

I AM 82 and in a wheelchair. It is very difficult for me to get to a doctor unless they can assist me to my doctor’s office. The courtesy workers at MCG can no longer come out to the parking deck and get patients. I wish Dr. Azziz had never come to Georgia.

THE MOST HATED man in Augusta and you print his address in the paper. Really?

RAVE TO THE guy who pointed out the food stamp recipients had a brand new pickup truck. I didn’t know you could make truck payments with food stamps. I’m going down to get one today. I need it.

WHY IS THE community trying to help Fort Gordon? To my knowledge, Fort Gordon hasn’t done anything to help the average person on the street. They didn’t help the people in Harrisburg. As far as I’m concerned, they could close the fort down and get rid of it. They stole the land for it from the people of Pinetucky.

THIS IS A LOUD RAVE for the person who lives on Walton Way Extension who flies that beautiful multicolored flag from his front stoop. Although this seems to be merely the banner of a social or political organization, it certainly does provide a welcome bit of springtime color to a dreary area of our town. Kudos also!

BOTH BOSTON SUSPECTS, Hugo Chavez, Raul and Fidel Castro, Vladi­mir Putin, Iran’s Ahma­dine­jad have one thing in common: They all endorsed and supported Obama for president !

OK, NOW THE TRUTH is out concerning Mark San­ford’s visit to his ex-wife’s home, also the home of his youngest son. All the news reports did their best/worst to portray him as a “peeping Tom” or some other type of pervert. He simply brought home his son, and by that son’s request stayed to watch the remainder of the game. Jenny Sanford wasn’t there, so what’s the issue? God forbid that Mark actually honors a request from his youngest son! This truly stinks of a carefully calculated attack against his campaign. I’m now wondering when she actually filed her complaint against him, before or after he won the runoff election? This fails the smell test!

OBAMA IS FINALLY traveling to Texas to honor those killed in the blast in West. I’m wondering if it took him so long because he had to negotiate with the Republic of Texas for a visa.

Fort Gordon

"Fort Gordon hasn’t done anything to help the average person on the street."

Never mind the tens of thousands of local Augusta folks employed there or even the billions of dollars spent in the local area.

How about you head on over to Eisenhower Hospital on Fort Gordon and meet the ordinary Americans who have given arms and legs for the average people on the streets.
