Isn’t it hilarious that our future lies in the hands (minds) of Millenials that eat detergent pods & snort condoms. More of their parents should have used condoms correctly.
John C. Calhoun did nothing illegal…thank goodness. He was simply an ardent proponent of slavery, which sees human beings as property — devoid of intrinsic value. Martin Luther King, Jr. was imprisoned for standing up for civil rights. Legal is not always right. Calhoun did nothing illegal (for his time); he merely violated a far greater, immutable law.
It doesn’t do any good for the city of Augusta to put up all of those “No Parking” signs in National Hills. Richmond County Sheriff’s department doesn’t enforce them. Five cars were parked in front of my house daily, but guess what? I did not see one policeman around the whole week. Whoever parked in front on my home, had a nice Southern note left on their windshield.
Now I see why trump likes fox news so much. It’s like the national inquirer, its glitzy, its written in a rather elementary fashion, and you don’t have to worry about facts getting in the way of a good story.
When your president talks I don’t get offended. I have more then a middleschool education so his messages are not directed to me. Middleschool and above, you are not his audience.
Ron Cross has no clue of culture and class
Every time there’s a big election, the CSRA Police Benevolent Association and the Augusta Professional Firefighters Association- both UNIONS – wave their badges and claim the incumbents they endorse and funnel union money to “are for public safety;” implying their opponents are not. Use your brain and vote for the candidate, who you think will do the best job for YOU.
How much can Doug Duncan really know about the traffic issues in the county? Doug lives in a gated community with guards to keep people like you and me out so they don’t have to deal with traffic. Where have you been for the last 3 years? Oh that’s right you’ve been at the country club, and not the nightclub.
Come on District 8 we can produce a better candidate than this kid Brandon Garrett who has absolutely no experience to be making any decisions. The kid is unopposed so I assume everyone in our district must either be elderly or in middle school.
Notice that a large number of TaxSlayer employees are parking at the Columbia County Library, walking across the traffic light controlled crosswalk (wonder who paid for that!) to work. Another sweetheart deal by Ron Cross? Does he get free tickets to the TaxSlayer Bowl? Just asking.
WGAC 580AM recently added Mr.John Patrick to cohost the morning program, sad to say. He has the required radio voice, along with the inability to avoid saying, “Um, Uh” repeatedly. Not professional. After years of enjoying that program, um, I am a listener no longer.
MS, thank you very much for making sure to publish the truth about Monique Walker. Yes, she was charged with the fine and probation time. And if she’s really smart, she would have just told the truth and not the silly lie that she thought “consulting fees” was a gift from her father that would not matter to the IRS. Otherwise, we know that her judgment is heavily flawed, especially with no experience in court besides as the guilty party that had to be punished. Let’s go with Bo Hunter!
We bombed Syria because Assad poisoned his own peopeople with chemical weapons. Are we going to bomb the city of Flint too ?
In response to the individual who called out the “Downtown Development Group Lady”, I’m not sure which street corner you were standing on. Nor am I sure what “group” you’re talking about. There’s a Downtown Development Authority, but a not a “group” to my knowledge. Personally I think parking meters downtown would be great! The more cars we can turn in parking spaces the more “tricks” you can turn. It would be a win for all. The city and the prostitues. Dilly Dilly!
Doug Duncan claims he will solve the traffic woes. Perhaps he will finally direct county leaders to use those electronic message signs on Belair Road that taxpayers paid to have installed several years ago. The only use they get now is flashing “click it or ticket”. What happened to real time traffic updates “like major cities”, that’s what the public was told when they were installed? Doug did you approve of this exorbitant traffic sign expense for such a simplistic use?
Guess Mike Sleeper gets a pass. Carraway and board let “stolen valor” slide. Had this been a teacher on staff the outcome would have been very different. Hypocrisy at it’s best.
Doug Duncan, just another blueblood from that gated community, promising to solve traffic woes for the common folk. Duncan’s gated country club is far removed from the congestion and poor planning so eagerly heaped on the common folk…But never fear, he is proudly proclaiming he is “drama” free, which really means don’t worry good ole boys, I am one of you.
