Rants & Raves

I THINK I WILL GO down to the slum area tomorrow and pay $2.04 for a cup of coffee.

 

JUST BECAUSE the newspaper printed it in black and white and your picture and charges are in the Jail Report makes you guilty. You have to prove you’re not guilty but you have already been convicted and tried in the local news media and Jail Report. Even if you know you are not guilty and cannot afford to buy a lawyer, the public defender’s office will not do their job to prove your innocence. They want you to plead guilty. Their job is done; they get paid regardless of your defense.

 

THE CARTOON Candorville is too left-wing political to be on the cartoon page, if not dropped entirely. Like Doonesbury it should be moved to the editorial page or the trash can!

 

IF OBAMA HAD A CITY it would look like Detroit or Augusta.

 

I DON’T GET where you think freeloaders will get it worse than Third World countries. As far as I can see, they get the best. They run to soup kitchens for free meals, they can get access to free clothing and foods and other giveaways at various places and some get free living quarters in local shelters. They have better clothes with no holes than I do, some even manage to beg
monies off of too-generous people and then
brag about having the cash to buy “goodies” they can’t find for free. That is way better than Third World.

 

RAVE FOR THE staff at the tag office on Lumpkin Road. They are indeed friendly and efficient. Even waiting in a long line, each customer was greeted with a cheerful smile and friendly, helpful demeanor.

 

WE THE PEOPLE of Augusta-Richmond County have spoken about the way our county government operates. We must make fundamental changes to the number of commissioners as well as the job description of the mayor. Though they all say they are concerned for Augusta, they are too concerned with their own districts instead of looking at the big picture. Though they say it is not, every issue comes down to black vs. white. Go color blind. Get back to the basics of honesty, integrity, respect, character and being thrifty. Scout Law would be a good guide.

 

PLEASE HELP TO END slavery. It is estimated that between 100,000 and 300,000 children are trafficked for sex each year in the United States. The average age is between the ages of 12 and 14. No market can survive without demand. If men stop buying it, human trafficking will end.
