Dear Augusta area Mexican restaurants: Can you please just focus on serving quality food and big strong margaritas and stop with all this karaoke nonsense? All it does is bring in these delusional no-talent divas who take up all the tables and who barely order anything. It drives your paying customers away.
Teddy Roosevelt said to “Speak quietly and carry a big stick.” Donald Trump is speaking loudly and swinging his stick in the wrong direction.
O’Reilly said the accusations against him are unfounded, not untrue. That’s because he knows they are true. He knows the sheer numbers of women who have said he did it to them shows a perfectly clear pattern, and that it is obvious to us all, including his program’s sponsors. “Unfounded” is a slick legal term meaning there are no other witnesses to his acts than the individual women he abused. But what difference does it make? We elected a rich man President who bragged on videotape about his sexual crimes, all unpunished. Where is the outcry from our pulpits when these things come to light? Our pastors, male and female, remain silent – we have indeed lost our moral compass. All that was needed for evil to triumph in the lead-up to WWII was for good people “to remain silent.” And they mostly did. The worst part is so often these men are paid off, as O’Reilly was. If only half the executives at Fox News and half the lawyers writing the contracts were women, there would be no clause for any one to be paid a penny if s/he were fired for cause. The powers-that-be at Fox approved that clause because both they and O’Reilly knew this mess was coming, didn’t they? They’d covered it up for years and they knew. Andrew Young was right with his quote about the Golden Rule. It operates just the same today: “Them that has the gold makes the rules.”
I guess when Donald Trump “drained the swamp,” his tax returns accidently fell into the drainpipe.
Maybe Austin Rhodes will apply to replace Bill O’Reilly since he has been focusing on items of National matters. For the most part, ignoring the issues of Columbia County. Perhaps he’s upset the Metro Spirit has better sources than he does. Some will not share anything with him. Has he called for Johnson to be placed on leave until the findings are released? Has he called for the proud Veterans to show up at the board of education meeting to let him know that they haven’t forgotten the Ranger issue?
The Aiken Lobster Races are an important part of the culture and identify Aiken as a place that is fun to visit. Whomever it is that is at the helm of the event needs to no longer be in charge if there been this long of a break. There’s no excuse anymore. The strides the lobsters have been made to hide under the watery rocks to hide. That is no longer acceptable. As the Insider article says, there are several key nonprofits who are hurting by the races not taking place for three years. If organizers are burnt out, then it is time to hand over the races to others who will be able to successfully organize and led this great hometown event. There’s no time to waste.
Why does every “Hollywood celebrity” have to announce to the world their sexual orientation or tell us when they’re pregnant? Having said that, I would like to announce that I’m male, I’m heterosexual, and I’m not pregnant. Thank you.
Laughing at all the whines about Snoop Dogg. That cat was an honor student at a magnet high school in the Los Angeles area, a hugely competitive global center for the performing arts. He went to school with Cameron Diaz. He grew up singing and playing piano in his church choir. He’s not from Compton. He’s from Long Beach. Fact is that marketing a black man as a pimp works better than marketing him as a piano player. Y’all believe that story because it rings truer for a rapper to talk about guns and drugs than god and love.
Isn’t it ironic the Democratic candidate to replace Tom Price is touted as a former Congressional Assistant, but neglects to mention his Congressman was Hank Johnson who stated on the floor of the US Congress “With all the people moving to one side of the island of Guam it will surely turn over” And the media omitted that fact.
