Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

WE DON’T NEED a charter school. The good students help the poor slower students in class. Students react more to their peers teaching them than teachers. Use that asset. Keep the good students so they can help the poor students. You will see more productivity and better grades.

RANT TO EVERY doctor in the area who doesn’t write excuses for work. I will take my insurance and copays somewhere else, and I will tell everybody I know how you treated me.

RAVE TO JUDGE Daniel Craig and a big rant to Sentinel Offender Services. What goes around comes around. You’re lucky you’re not going to jail.

I SEE NO MENTION of money in the article about the Cops TV show coming to Augusta. Are you telling me that Augusta is providing location, actors and expenses to a film company that will make millions off that show? Someone should take another look at that.

WONDERFUL THANKS to Drs. White and Wild at GRU. They took wonderful care of my son when he had strep throat. He is doing great. Be blessed.

THE POSTAL increase is unnecessary. The problem is easy to solve. Give your employees off Wednesday and Sunday. That gives them a five-day work week and gives the public mail delivery every other day. The employees and customers will be satisfied with no increase in cost.

ARE WE STILL going to get parking meters for our slum area?

WHY DO SOME conservatives enjoy bashing liberals because of perceived name-calling, yet they enjoy using words such as “liberals” and “progressives” as epithets?

THIS IS A RAVE thanking the staff of Richmond/Burke Job Training Authority for the 19 years of providing quality service to the residents of Richmond and Burke counties under the Workforce Investment Act. A rant goes out to the people, including politicians, who destroyed the agency in 2½ months. Seventeen people lost their jobs.

A RANT FOR DON Turner for his letter to the editor. “We the people of the United States ...” means every citizen of the United States regardless of ability to work. It does mean, however, that illegal aliens, and there is no such thing as an illegal immigrant except in the mind of a left-wing liberal, are covered under its laws and rights. Illegal aliens do not have any rights under the Constitution of the United States.

Rank #1

The good students help the poor slower students in class.
Sorry, I have never seen this happen from 1963 to 1999.

Actually Teachers will hold back allowing good students from being their best, by teaching to the lowest common denominator student.

RANT #2

RANT TO doctors who won't write excuses for work. .... I will tell everybody I know how you treated me.

Obviously not anyone at your work.

Also Just show your printed out receipt for the visit.
It likely shows the time, a date and doctors name and location.

PHRASE for the Honesty of a local fast food employee.

Marica (sp) a young lady working the counter at 11:30am Wed. @
the Capt. D's on Deans Bridge Rd.

The wife and I was doing a Pay-It-Forward gesture, by anonymously treating an much older couple, the wife in obvious poor health, to free desserts.

Unbeknownst to my wife and I, the couple declined the free offer.

This young lady quietly brought back the $$ and let us know of the decline.

We admired the honesty so much of this young lady, who likely working a minimum wage job, we informed her Manager of her deed.

Hope & Honest is not death in Richmond Co.
We just have to look a little harder than we use to find it.

We are sure she will find that her honesty will be rewarded.

Good students helping slower

Good students helping slower students is a nice idea. It provides valuable experience to the good students who will probably find themselves in a position needing to train at some point in their careers.

Alas, nocnoc makes a valid point. More students at a higher level of expertise could make the jobs a little harder for some in the education establishment. Not sure the unions would support.

rant #8

If the shoe fits...

Besides why would a liberal feel bad about being called a liberal? Jeez, look at the most patriotic group in the country - the Tea Party! I can't think of a more unfairly maligned group. Of course they're maligned because nothing scares a liberal or progressive more than people that make sense!

rant #9

I hate that anyone lost their jobs, but the "Workforce Investment Act"?

Get real, while they're probably are a few success stories, the time and investment was inefficient at best, wasteful at worst and most definitively duplicative.

Yep

#1, I see both sides of the argument. Why the parents of kids who want to learn would like to get into a Charter School environment. Conversely, when you pull the best and brightest out of any system, you lower the performance average, which is what gets advertised. Just call a local Realtor and ask them where you should relocate your family.

#3 I have ranted against Sentinel's practices for years on here. Read Joe White's article last week in the MS.

#4 Charles Walker used to require his Pig be fed. Bet there is a Pig on the desk requiring stacks of cash.

#8 It's what we do. Conservatives could call other conservatives names, but what fun would that be?

Magnet and Charter Schools

Magnet and charter schools are two different animals. Charter schools have to accept all comers. As far as magnet schools, I get the argument of these schools helping superior students, but I think we also have to realize the regular schools losing the better students are damaged. Maybe as some say, the teachers can make the work easier when the superior students are gone, but that’s not saying anything positive. The example setting influence of the better students is missed by the students left at the regular school. The test scores definitely reflect the absence of the better students.

Rant about post office

"THE POSTAL increase is unnecessary. The problem is easy to solve. Give your employees off Wednesday and Sunday. That gives them a five-day work week and gives the public mail delivery every other day. The employees and customers will be satisfied with no increase in cost"

VERY GREAT IDEA!! My family has been saying for years that Saturday delivery could be easily cut out!!

This is not true!!

The good students help the poor slower students in class.

That is what daddy gov would have you to believe.....the truth is the smart kids are held back & they don't reach their full potential......for instance...think of it like this.....take 3 of the slow posters on here & only post with them...day in & day out.....ok, get back with me after a week or so & tell me what you learned during that posting period...

Then the next week, find 3 wise, fast knowledgeable posters & post with them.....do the math.

Schools

So holding someone back to make the others look good is a good thing. Could you be the one at work who does very little but everyone else you work with is given extra so the department as a whole looks good? I'll bet your coworkers love working with you as they are doing their jobs and part of yours too.

Mia Farrow

A few random remembrances. Her mother, Maureen O'Sullivan, said Frank Sinatra should be dating her instead of her daughter. Peyton Place. Mia cutting her very short hair when mad at Frank. And, yep, that's Frank's kid alright. Spitting image.

Good Morning America.

Reading all the comments made in the last 3 days,, it is very easy to classify all the commentators into two groups.

One group will die fighting for the Affordable Health Care Bill and totally hate the Obama Care Bill.

The other believe that both will destroying this great nation and do anything to eradicate it.

Proves the one group is more informed an intelligent than the other.

Just like the Sequester Games

the White House is trying to over do the Shutdown with the some medias help.

Already they have been caught closing a number of things that have never been closed in previous shut downs.

Parks with fences and barricades manned with park rangers to enforce a closure?

A few examples:
World War II memorial in DC, where the NPS tried to prevent veterans from seeing the monument by erecting barriers and even threatening vets with arrest. The veterans stormed through the barricades anyway. “People had to spend hours setting up barricades where there are never barricades to prevent people from seeing the World War II monument because they’re trying to play a charade,” Senator Rand Paul.

The Lincoln memorial and other high profile sites, all wide open areas that really don't need more than a DC COP to watch.

Feds shut down D-Day beaches, cemetery in Normandy FRANCE? I have family buried there, it has French Care takers the last time we visited.

Feds Try to Shut Down Privately Owned Mount Vernon. The NPS has stationed officers along the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal that runs 184 miles from Washington, D.C. to Cumberland, Maryland to make sure nobody uses the bike paths. Using more manpower to keep it closed than when it is open?

Feds also shut down a tiny park in which children play on fake turtles, prompting angry mothers to remove the barriers, only to see them put back up. “The park is extremely small and sort of seems pointless to block off,”

House Natural Resources Committee are considering opening up an investigation into where the Obama administration directly ordered the “outrageous” closures to “make the current lapse in appropriations as conspicuous and painful to the public as possible,” according to the letter from chairman.

No just like the Sequester, The White House is again playing it up even where it has DOES NOT have to.

For years, we have been told the DOD Commissary system is Self sufficient and self paying. Now it needs to be shutdown? Why?

Just how much is REAL vs. CONTRIVED.
