Only in Augusta could anything as corrupt as the TEE Center occur, they say. Absolutely nowhere else in the United States, from sea to shining sea and then some, could a parking deck and convention center be built that involved such complicated and dubious legal maneuvering.
Augusta is the most corrupt city in the lower 48, bar none, and it’s simply amazing that the national media hasn’t come here and exposed our overflowing nest of evildoers for what they really are — by God, there are a few rich people getting richer every day off the backs of hard-working taxpayers, and the fat cats doing business with city government just come out ahead every damn time.
The Outraged Class is really feeling it now, what with the whole TEE Center catering contract deal regaining center stage, and it’s almost hard not to be moved by all their righteous hyperbole. That’s not to say there’s nothing wrong with the catering contract. Obviously, it needs to be fairly and seriously scrutinized to make sure that the city is getting the best deal it can. The public should demand no less.
BUT. To be of the opinion that Augusta is the most corrupt city in the entire United States of America… and have those words come out of your mouth and not be challenged by people who are a little, shall we say, less naïve, is an embarrassment. Have you chicken littles ever, ever heard of, say, Louisiana? Illinois? Alabama? New York? New Jersey? Thank goodness we are being protected from losing a few sheckles by the self appointed do-gooders… but get it together, people. Settle down and take yourselves a little less seriously. Augusta is pretty much just like hundreds, if not thousands, of other towns across the lower 48.
Of course there are issues with the contracts between Billy and the city — always have been, always will be. His group pushes for the very best deal they can get, which is why they’re continually around year after year, pushing. But you lose so much credibility with such outrageous pronunciations. It’s business as usual. Glad to have you paying attention now. But remember, every town has its own Krusty Krab. It’s own Chum Bucket. It’s own Mr. Crabs. It’s own Plankton. And a few Spongebobs and Patricks. (And for you Republicans out there… I’m afraid there are more Sandys around than you’re aware of.) Don’t panic. Just keep paying attention and leave the hyperbole to TMZ.You Might Also Like:
