Rant and Rave for 12/21/12

MOULTRIE — In response

“Okay, think it through now. Because some educators pointed out which doors were unlocked do you really think they will remain unsecured for intruders now that they have been pointed out. I would bet administrators have already addressed those issues. Good job!"

Go on record

“To all the people saying that you know for a fact about drugs being in the schools. That your child has seen other students doing drugs in the bathroom, parking lot or where ever it may be happening. If you are not willing to go on record then shut up and quit complaining. Nothing can be done unless you tell the administration who and where it is happening."

The laws

“Adam Larza broke numerous laws when he committed the crimes in Connecticut. How are more laws the answer? Maybe we should just ban murder and see if that helps."

Applause

“Thank you Mr. Travis Kern and the serenaders for the wonderful Christmas music."

Newtown

“I had never really heard of Newtown until the tragedy. I just hope that someone doesn’t say the same thing one day about Moultrie."

The amendment

“If the second amendment only applies to muskets, then the first amendment doesn't apply to telephones, radio, text messages, television, or the internet."

Choice factor

“I’m not really sure what your point was in talking about how many people obesity kills. Keep in mind that in most cases, obesity is a lifestyle choice. Kids don’t make a choice to be massacred."

The question

“When young children are slaughtered en masse, it is a moment of reckoning for any society. To dismiss this as the act of a madman is unacceptable when it forms part of a pattern, part of a culture. The question to ask is not whether stricter laws would have prevented this but whether current laws and attitudes enabled it."

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.
