Rant and Rave for 12/05/12

MOULTRIE — The cliff

“America has already gone over a cliff. At the bottom are fellow Americans wanting to punish the successful by charging higher taxes just because they accomplished success in their businesses."

I agree

“I agree with a previous ranter, my children attend an elementary school where we are more than pleased with the gifted instruction, and I would hate to loose that because some other schools do not ensure that their schools are meeting the need. However, I agree that something needs to change at the middle school level. More work does not equal a gifted or as you call it accelerated classroom. Where is the critical thinking and higher order tasks?"

Me too

“Yes I experienced the horror of meeting people in that fog without their lights on. I  hope they weren’t texting."

I agree

“Elections have consequences. One is determining who is in or out of power. With the president’s re-election, he’s accumulated ‘political capital’ and, like his predecessor, can be expected to spend it though with greater prudence. If he falls short of such wisdom, Senator Saxby Chambliss will no doubt give him the benefit of his own. This shouldn’t come as a ‘bolt out of the blue’ to anyone but perhaps Mr. Psalmond for whom remediation via Civics 101 is not only indicated but recommended with some urgency!"

Out of balance

“Teacher positions at the elementary schools have been cut and the schools no longer have full time assistant principals, but how many of our central office staff kept a secretary? Our superintendent has two and now our comptroller has a halftime assistant."

Court action

“It's going to be very, very interesting now to see how local law enforcement handles the illegal immigrant problem in Colquitt County. The Georgia Appeals Court has now cleared the way for the state’s ‘show me your papers statute to take effect’. We shall see, won't we? Maybe no more slaps on the wrist, and ‘be on your way’ by local traffic court judges?"

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.
