Rant and Rave for 02/08/13

MOULTRIE — I agree

“I agree Mr. Walden, the lights going out at the Super Bowl was greatly overstated. Maybe some people thought this was a government action ... you know, they would sneak in and take away your guns before the game was over."

Big deal

“No Saturday mail delivery? Big deal. All I get are 2 pounds of junk mail and bills. I finally moved my mailbox near my garbage can so I don’t have to even bring the junk mail in the house. Why not save some real money and go to Monday-Wednesday-Friday delivery? I get nothing in the mail that can’t wait another day."

Pains in the buns

“I sympathize with the excuses given for school fund raisers.  But, they are big pains in the posterior. People are bombarded by neighborhood kids, co-worker kids, relatives kids, all selling the same stuff. Stuff you don’t want or need. There is only so much you can afford. Then you feel bad to turn a child away. This doesn’t help a child’s self esteem to be shunned by those they approach to sell to. System needs to be revamped."

Drones

“I saw in the paper where they're complaining about drones killing American citizens. They ain't American citizens if they turned to terrorism. They ought to use the drones and kill them all."

Like the idea

“I like the idea of using drones. No need to get our soldiers killed when we can use a robot. But first, I think we should not get involved in so many conflicts unless there is a direct threat to our national security."

An accounting

“Again, I would like to see an accounting of what the money goes for ... the money that school kids collect for selling stuff. I’m not saying I’m opposing that practice at this time, but I would like to see the books on some of these projects. Where is the accountability?"

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.
