Rants & Raves

Thanks to Kevinupsbrown88 for this photo of pink camellias. They say that their camellia tree was in full bloom earlier this month. Send me a photo if you'd like to see it here. Have a good week everybody! - Sean sean.moore@augustachronicle.com

SIGNING UP FOR Healthcare.gov was simple. It only took three months, four applications, three hours-long phone calls, two uploads of financial info and one premium payment later canceled. How much simpler could it be?

 

I WOULD LIKE TO thank the Richmond County judge who decided that my dogs needed to be put to death for a mistake that I made. He never bothered to ask how I was able to pay for any of the medical attention they needed because if he had I could have explained that my mother had died in December and had left an insurance policy that enabled me to pay for her funeral with some left over which I used to pay for it.

 

NOT ONLY SHOULD welfare recipients be required to pass drug tests, if they fail they should be arrested and prosecuted for fraud. I have to pass random drug tests in order to earn an honest living for my family and am sick and tired of supporting deadbeat crack heads.

 

A RANT TO THE gentleman who believes left-turn drivers always have to yield to right turn drivers. Check your facts and the law. This is not universal. Intersections with right turn yield signs must yield to left turn drivers. You can see this at numerous intersections in Augusta. One such intersection is Furys Ferry Road and Riverwatch.

 

IT’S GREAT TO SEE that Columbia County has high school sports. Too bad Richmond County doesn’t offer any for their students ... Wait, maybe they do but you wouldn’t know it according the paper. Why doesn’t Richmond County get the same sports front-page color articles like Columbia County?

 

HOORAY, HOORAY, hooray. I would vote for the 12 members of the jury that convicted the Hargrove fellow. It is time people in Augusta got the backbone to convict some of these killers with the death sentence and let them meet their maker.

 

RANT FOR RICARDO Azziz. If he really knew what people think of him, he would be amazed. He was selected by Nathan Deal and the Regents to do the dirty work.

 

CAN ANYTHING BE done about the number of burned-out lights at the Riverwalk, especially down near the museum? It is very dark in a lot of areas.

 

THERE IS NO NEED for us poor taxpayers to pay to have those rich people’s trees removed. Let them do it themselves. They built those houses in those trees. Let them clear them when they fall down.
