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."

  • Uplift our form of government; go vote today!

    Today is our election runoff. This is a great opportunity for some serious flag-waving. It’s also a great opportunity to uplift the very fundamentals of our democratic republic — a system where we choose leaders to make decisions for us. And it’s a time when we can honor those who have sacrificed to help secure our system of government.

  • dwain walden.tif Remembering those special moments

    Having been in the news business for many years, I have occasionally been asked what was the funniest or strangest story I’ve ever covered. Well, there have been a number of instances along the way that brought some chuckles, otherwise making my day.

  • The Sabal project

    Dear editor:
    After holding more than 50 open houses and public meetings in communities along the pipeline route, and hundreds of meetings with government officials, public agencies, landowners, community organizations and key stakeholders, the Sabal Trail natural gas pipeline is moving forward.

  • Obama much like Hitler

    Dear editor:
    In the past several months the popularity of the president has spiraled down and he has subverted our Constitution at every turn, yet nothing is being done to stop it.  There are calls for impeachment but no one has the guts to impeach this man, who has systematically brought down the greatest country in the world.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
