Rant and Rave for 2/19/12

MOULTRIE — Confusion

“I see there's still some confusion about the sound device you can have installed on your rifle. Its not a silencer but a sound suppressor. The intent is not to silence the weapon but to reduce the decibels expended when it is fired and reduce the chance of damage to the shooters hearing.

"This being done at the same time allowing the shooter to be able to hear another hunter if needed. As for that second shot, in my experience deer ain't that good with which direction a bullet came from. Just be still, wait until it looks the other way and take your shot."

In response

“Just read Cal Thomas apologizing for saying the entire staff at MSNBC should have been aborted. This comment was met with hoops and hollers of laughter from the crowd at CPAC. Cal's apology whether real or not shouldn't really be the issue.

"This was a crowd of what they regularly remind us of, Evangelical Christians. I would think there would have been a great gasp of horror at the very mention of aborting anything, but this was just a joke about abortion and the only victim would have been a liberal."

Losing a job

“Those people who have never worked dont know what losing a job or your house and everything you own is like. The people who have worked most of their lives and lost it all, now that is poverty.

"Remember if a working person loses their job they will end up with nothing and want get help from the government. The folks who never worked but live in government housing and get free food and medicare will always have someone taking care of them."

Break cycle

“If your religion says to abstain from sex or not to use contraceptives then dont. But if it doesnt then by all means use it. We have too many children in this world now being raised by the grandparents or by the state and being paid for by the working folks. If they grow up and get pregnant and don’t work guess who pays for their kids as well. Break the cycle."

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
