In the year 2012 there were 491 posters chewed near bout to death by Albany Herald Squawkers. If we outlawed all CorchJohnson's, BSR's, and the many others who like all of us have a right to freedom of squawk there would be no fun here anymore. I've had more gut bustin laughs on here than I ever have watching the Comedy Channel. Not trying to make light of kids or anyone being hurt by dogs, people with guns or in any way but come on!
Thank you FT and I agree with you about the empire thing. Like I said I'm a work in progress and have much to learn. I wish I had the understanding that you do about it all, honestly and you're right. The good part of PPMH can not make up for the evil empire things that happen for sure and I may not know a lot but I have witnessed some of that bad stuff personally so it's real. There's no hiding that. I guess I just get a little upset when people keep on and on about just the bad...like it's all evil and that's not the case as you mentioned. Plus I realize I need to practice up a little on my understanding the squawk's true meaning and try to keep it between the river banks better than I do. There's plenty enough of that already on here. Thank you FT.
No granny I don't feel any better now because I feel badly for all who will not have a job when Palmyra finally closes it's doors. Thanks FT and yes perhaps I am taking it a bit too hard and yes, I too admit that I've repeated things I've heard as gospel before looking into it deeper for as close to the truth as I could find so I said "we" because I am guilty too. I am working on getting better at that though and wish so many other people in our town would too but that may be the same as thinking everyone in Albany will stop being racist....a dream and only a dream as sad as it may be. How about we approach PPMH like we would a marriage relationship when we feel it is going south. Get a piece of paper and write down all that PPMH does that is good for not just Albany but south Ga, and then right down what PPMH does that is bad and look at the paper closely to see which list is longer. But, way too many refuse to do that when it's so much easier to repeat over and over what they hear from so many others, PPMH, the evil empire, Joel, the anti-Christ. Come on!! If any of us were hired by PPMH to do his job would we sit in our office and play solitaire every day and never do a single thing to create growth? We wouldn't be there long. PPMH is not perfect like I said before. No company or organization is, especially as big as they are. We should all be thankful that we have a top notch hospital with the most modern technology in the south when one of our family members has a very bad accident or heart attack. Or better yet...if our daughter or wife is in labor and something really bad goes wrong with the mother and the new born. Our NICU is the best and gets better and better as time passes. Doesn't that matter at all to us???
HCA had been trying to sell Palmyra for 8 years before PPMH agreed to step in. If the deal is lost no one is going to buy it so what does that leave? Our city losing, that's what it means. All the people there now will be unemployed and it will sit and become the next abandoned hotel like we had on west Oglethorpe. Why is it that we hear one person make statements that they probably heard from someone else who has no clue what they're talking about and we spread that ignorance to all we know like it's the gospel??? Do your research, or keep right on repeating something you heard and continue to make us all look like the fools we are to those people who know the real truth about PPMH, HCA and Palmyra.
It will only hurt the people of Albany if PPMH can't buy Palmyra. They have the money to build a new hospital but instead agreed to buy Palmyra, who HCA had already sat on the chopping block AND will NOT take back if PPMH pulls out which leaves everyone that works there on the streets. ALSO, PPMH, even though they are tax exempt, agreed to pay the city of Albany taxes if they bought Palmyra because HCA had been paying taxes and it would be a win-win for all if PPMH could buy it saving the jobs AND the city of Albany getting gobs of tax money. As for competition, HCA was never competition because they did not have a birthing center or a few more services that PPMH has so how could it be any kind of competition??? So, go ahead and keep screamin for them not to buy Palmyra and they will be forced, because they are completely out of room, to build a brand new hosptial which THEY WILL NOT PAY A SINGLE DIME OF TAXES TO OUR CITY. I will never say that PPMH is perfect or has never done things they shouldn't but losing the Palmyra deal is a loss for all of us if it happens. Haters, go ahead and hate and continue to spread your ignorance.
I LIKE THE MADECAED SYSTEM, THEY TOLD ME THEY FIXED ME, THEN THEY LET ME OUT. I DON'T REKN I GOT NO NEEDS TO HURT NOBODYS AGAIN. JUST LEEVE MY CAT BE AND THEY WON'T BE NO TRUBLES.
But...but, and just when I found the coolest desktop picture in the world he has to leave. I guess I will keep it so I can remember the "good times".
I've been screaming "BO HENRY FOR MAYOR" for couple years now. Awesome weekend, great venue and it all happened without a single reported mugging. One of the TV10 reports had an interview with a patron who said they came because we do not have events at the Albany Civic Center anymore. It's a very sad thing when a person from out of town even knows that we've allowed such awful management at the civic center for so long that nobody who is in the bigtime will book here. The word has gotten out to them no doubt. That is so sad.
As will we all albanyherald1, our day WILL come when we will answer to Him and all I can say or ask is for God to have mercy on us all. I agree and will do just that, pray for brother billybob. Thanks for your words of wisdom. :)
I believe in truth. I have seen zero evidence that evolutuion is real. Does any agnostic bother to look in the dictionary to what truth actually means?
