Rant and Rave for 01/18/13

MOULTRIE — Not surprised

“I’m not surprised that someone would get on MADD’s back about drunk illegals. Instead of applause for all this organization does to call attention to the deadly issue of drunk driving, you bring in illegals. You may want to go back to the drawing board. I’m sure you can work something in here about the Second Amendment and welfare fraud."

Novel idea?

“You comment about Bibles gave me pause for thought. What if our churches canvased neighborhoods giving out Bibles? Now there’s a concept we might want to try. It would not violate the First Amendment and it might actually energize some of our churches ... you know, get them out of their comfort zone, kind of like what Christ and his disciples did."

Really?

“Yes, I’m sure that Cadillac driver was just out there running an errand for an invalid, buying her food with her EBT card. Then did you hear the one about a Catholic, a Jew and a Baptist going into a bar .....?"

Nice break

“Mr. Walden, I just read your column about the weenis. Again I ask you, what have you been smoking? Actually my wife and I enjoyed it. Such a nice break from wars and rumors of wars and crooked politicians."

Rejection factor

“To the ranter: You are absolutely right. Rejection is a fact of life. Sometimes it happens. Sometimes you come in second, not first. Sometimes you don’t even finish the race. Kids need to understand that not succeeding the way they had planned is not the end of the world. Thomas Edison once noted, “Yes I’m making progress. Already I know a hundred things that won’t work.” Regrouping is a viable function of life. We should teach that."

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.
