GRUA solution is "farcical"

  • Follow Letters

I have never met letter writer Bert Dean (“GRUA is marketing disaster,” Oct. 27), but it would be a pleasure, as I see us sharing the same name and many of the same thoughts.

The administrations in Washington, D.C., and in Atlanta seem to forget some basic tenets of the Constitution, in that the government will “establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity ... ”

The upcoming elections provide the opportunity to right the wrongs of the 2006 and 2008 elections and kick the rascals out – some from each party, U.S. Rep. John Barrow included, as well as the president and congressional leaders. This president wants to rule by executive order rather than Congress writing legislation.

Hopefully, some in Atlanta soon will be gone as well. Too bad we can’t boot the governor this time around.

Now, this farcical “solution” to “Save the A,” by merging Augusta State University and Georgia Health Sciences University under the “branding name” of Georgia Regents University Augusta, while keeping Georgia Regents University as its official name.

Since this is not to go through the Board of Regents again, it is not official and will be discarded as soon as things quiet down. The “Save the A” has become the “Save Azziz.” Bum deal. Save someone such as Azziz who has disparaged and looked down on Augusta and the CSRA ever since being anointed by the regents? I don’t think so. What hold does he have over them?

Richmond County Democratic party Chairman Lowell Greenbaum and his clones must be laughing all the way to the bank, since they are well-versed in double talk, deception and deceit.

I stated in an earlier letter that I have changed my will and, having lost our only child to cancer, will give all of my estate to the University of Cincinnati for cancer research. I am from a family of 12, the youngest in his mid-70s, the oldest in his lower 90s. All had pledged to give in memory of our son and our mother, both cancer victims.

All have now agreed to shift it to the U of C.

The best I can compute from the figures given is that Azziz and the regents have lost almost a half-million dollars. Thank you very much.

Thank you, Bert Dean, John Huffman (“A ‘compromise?’ Hardly,” Oct. 27) and Richard Craig (“I have just one question,” Oct. 27) for their on-point letters to the editor.

Augusta is Farcical

Wake up and smell the TEE Center. Then you can take a swim in the Rocky Creek Regency Mall Water Park.

Why would any sane person who can still escape continue to live under a totalitarian government? People in Europe risk their lives to flee such constant demagoguery.

If he had thrown in the kitchen sink?

The left would have gone nuts, as if they weren't already, had the writer thrown in the kitchen sink.

The country is waiting in great anticipation for the results of this election as never before.

We have been patient and soon, very soon, we will be rewarded.

Nothing good for the country has come from this presidency, with the exception, perhaps, of pushing Carter up from the bottom.

Gee effete. What's the matter?

You and your family can't come up with a half million to make up the loss?
