Rant and Rave for 3/30/12

MOULTRIE — Observation

“An observation: To you young guys who are painted from head to toe with tattoos, wear your caps turned sideways, trying to grow beards when it looks like mange ... do you really think you will ever be employable? It’s not just the physical appearance but the obvious law grade mentality that goes with it. Guys, there just aren’t that many biker shops hiring and who wants to eat hamburgers that you cook? Clean up!"

Check facts

“Check your facts. Mr. Bush spent about half as much in eight years as Mr. Obama has spent in three years. The economy did not start to go south untill the second presidential term of Mr. Bush when the Democrats regained control of Congress. Mr. Bush had no trouble winning his second term."

Morally wrong

“Is it morally right to take from one and give to another? No matter how you wrap it, theft is theft. Taxes are a form of theft. Welfare is funded by taxes. Welfare is morally wrong. It is the duty of those who believe in charity to provide for the needy. Two wrongs don't make a right..."

In response

“I think Mr. Driver did a wonderful job with his article. Mr. Edwards may need to read just a little slower. He did not say everyone on food stamps was lazy.  I witness a lot of people on foodstamps who do not deserve them. My mother worked all her life and when she was old and needed help she could get no help at all. If people get them that don't work and can, let them clean the roads or whatever is needed to pay for their stamps. I also know people still sale stamps for money and buy meat for dog food. Keep up your good work Mr. Driver, the majority thinks you are right on the money."

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.
