Rant and Rave for 11/27/12

MOULTRIE — Christmas parade

“I would like to know why the Christmas parade was changed from Saturday night to Thursday night. It is more convenient for everyone if it is on Saturday instead of a week/school night. Also, it would allow more time for people to work on their floats."


“Whose responsibility are the buzzards in moultrie. You can not travel anywhere in southeast moultrie. They are a health hazard and a danger to all who live in that section of town. What kind of world is this that you are afraid to step outside of your house. Something needs to be done."

We did it

“You wonder who took ‘Christ’ out of Christmas? You did. This is a season of worship, not shopping. Our children hold Santa in higher esteem than they do Christ. So stop calling it Christmas, it's just a Happy Holiday.

"Or teach the children what this season is really about, help someone in need, visit with the sick and lonely. If you wonder what is wrong with this world, we are. Only we can change it."

We're famous

“My cousin in Ohio called to tease me about our shopping riot. Isn’t it great to be famous?"

Peace on earth

“So much for peace on earth, goodwill toward men."

The bias

“The last few years of playoff football games should have taught some of the players that the men in stripes, North of the gnat-line, are extremely bias against South Georgia teams. It seems that any excuse to flip out the old yellow flag against us is all they are looking for. I wish some of our players would realize that actions, over and above hard-nosed football, and certainly those after the whistle, are foolish, damaging and could break the backs of the entire team’s efforts."

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.
