Rant and Rave for 4/12/12

MOULTRIE — What it says

“You are right. That thing about those guys and their underwear way above their pants and their pants below their butts ... yep, it’s ignorance. They are making a statement, it says I don’t have any respect for me or you nor the sense to come in out of the rain."

What I see

“When I see that Intermodal Facility, I think of an old saying, ‘All dressed up and nowhere to go.’"

Mental health

“Could the Social Security facility be set up as a mental health center once it is vacated by the Feds? Just wondering."

Vulgar

“I, too, am annoyed by loud music from cars. But mostly I’m annoyed by the vulgar rap that I hear coming from those cars. I’ve got a kid in the car with me and I’m hearing some really nasty stuff. I don’t care if someone else wants to listen to it. It’s none of my business. I just don’t want imposed on me and my children."

Need petition

“A petition should be circulating so that the Social Security Administration knows how much we need the local office. It is a shame that services that are need by our citizens are relocating so where else, making it inconvenient to receive. We need this more than we need empty buildings and a fancy bus station. Please help keep the Social Security office in Moultrie. Chamber, city council and county commissioners need to step up."

Shovel-ready?

“That Intermodal thing must be one of those ‘shovel ready’ projects. Unfortunately, no one really has any use for it which is the key symptom of ‘pork barrel’ projects. Someone please tell me how it would even have been relevant to the old Friedlander Building being converted to a college. I guess when we have the ribbon cutting, we will have an announcement of what it is to be used for."

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.
