Rant and Rave for 11/23/12

MOULTRIE — Coaching

“So I guess it’s a sin to be a coach. I’ve heard this whining for years. It never changes.But if it wasn’t coaches and football it would be something else. So I guess football helps keep the heat off others."

Don't need it

“Colquitt County does not need a magnet school. A school for students who are performing 2 or more years below grade level need the services more."

Charter schools

“Passing the Charter School Amendment will affect the budget of the local school board. If a charter school is initiated then they will get local money. Teachers are already needing more up-to-date equipment and spend a good portion of their salary on school supplies. This will negatively affect all schools."

The workers

“Dear 'taxing the rich', if you did not have people like 'us' (the average working, middle income folks) then it is highly doubtful you would have a business to close."

Rich folks

“Don't cry for the rich folks who will pay more taxes under  Obama's plan. The tax on their first $250,00 in income will be unchanged.

"Above that, the rates will be the same as they were in the Clinton years. No one would confiscate their money.

"Also, a prospering business could be sold at a fair price to some younger person who would be happy to get into a money-making enterprise."

Warm and fuzzy

“Gripe, gripe, gripe. Enough with the negativity. This holiday season, I challenge you to find something positive to rave about, instead of all this complaining. Wouldn't it be great to see an entire column of warm and fuzzy? Give it a try."

You've been had

“How did it feel when Bush relieved the rich of $1 trillion in taxes and said they were the wealth makers, the job creators; that we’d all benefit because that is what they’d do with the windfall? More importantly, how did it feel when those benefits didn’t materialize, and yet those tax breaks were renewed plunging the nation still deeper into debt as the economy itself was shrinking? Do the math (actually, it’s simple arithmetic), and tell us how it feels to realize you’ve been had!"

Poll

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.
