Lewd comments to women are wrong!
It should be no surprise that Austin Rhodes is taking the side of United and overzealous airport security over the rights of a paying customer who did nothing wrong other than sit in the seat he had paid for. But then Austin has always been in favor of an authoritarian police state. This is the same guy who has repeatedly advocated abolishing cash and making Americans use government approved debit cards so that all of our transactions can be tracked by the government. And Rhodes claims to be a Conservative??
The pictures on TV showed how the Masters patrons who had to walk far to their parking places would leave trash along the way at bus stops right on the seats. I think Augusta needs to remember to schedule more frequent trash pickups during the 2018 Masters week.
What the hell is with religious people that post videos on YouTube? 75% of them are done in automobiles and the same amount are “vertical videos.” C’mon man, turn your phones sideways you chowderheads!
Good job following up on Mike Sleeper. But please invest in exposing the toxic levels of nepotism in Columbia County politics and county hiring. I suspect that if you requested the employment rolls and compared them, you’ll see that it’s not “who you know,” it’s “who you’re related to.”
Is horrible good?
Props to The Metro Spirit for running The Whine Line and real news during Masters Week instead of just a fluff edition. I love The Masters and all the good it brings to Augusta but we don’t need to become a Potemkin Village during that one week. First off most of the Masters visitors are not even paying any attention to our local news. They are fixated on the tournament. It’s fine to accentuate the positive but we also shouldn’t ignore that we have problems that need attention and need to be fixed so the city is better next year.
Mama said you gotta learn from the BIG BOYs but I sure couldn’t in Columbia County
Please explain why AU president and others were pleased to pose with Snoop Dogg? While Dogg is milder now than in past years, this man served as a pimp. And this posing is coming just before Sexual Awareness events on campus?
United Airlines put off a doctor who would not volunteer for $800 to leave his flight and lose a day’s time. Actual cost that should have been offered: over $1,300 and possibly hotel fee. Value of injuring doctor in the eyes of millions: $250 million plus in one day alone. Was that worth it, United?
Just saw a segment on channel 12 where Bob Young, an industrial supplies broker, got a letter saying Westinghouse would not be paying him for services due to their bankruptcy. Bob Young? Bob Young? Former local news reader, former mayor, former George Bush butt kisser Bob Young? What does he know about industrial supplies? Imagine that, a really huge international company doing business with people like Bob Young, and they go belly up! Got Trump written all over it.
Thanks for posting my first ‘whine’ regarding the three Columbia County “leaders” who have made themselves look beyond foolish! I really enjoy the Metro Spirit and believe it is Fair and Balanced like Fox News and doesn’t follow mainstream media by printing misleading stories and often just “fake news.” Keep up the good work!
Why I don’t listen to Austin Rhodes: On the way home a few days ago I turned on my radio to listen to the news. Unfortunately, Austin was on and spewing his hate and discontent as usual. A person had called into the show to talk about the recent United Airlines fiasco where a man was forcibly removed from an overbooked airplane. He claimed to be a former police officer and was giving his point of view. Enter Austin and his D.A. self. He would not let the man complete a sentence before interrupting him to tell him how wrong he was. Then Austin started to yell (literally scream) like a five year old to get his point across. When the former police officer brought up the point about the man having a bloody nose Austin defended the airlines by saying he’s been cut hundreds of times just walking down the isle. The bottom line is an adult was trying to have an intelligent conversation and was shut down the second he disagreed with the host. Now let a babbling idiot call into the show and they get royal treatment. Geez, I would rather watch wrestling, At least I know it’s BS. To the former police officer that called Austin. You had a battle of wits with an unarmed man. Shame on you. ;)
