Rant and Rave for 02/21/13

MOULTRIE — Performing arts

“Just heard there are no plans to build a new auditorium at the new high school. Is that true? What about the 1500 students that are involved in the performing arts? Don't they deserve a space too?"

Our decision

“Taking a child to Thomasville in our case was due to the fact that the middle school places students according to test scores only! Therefore, our student was placed in low level classes putting our student with kids whos priorities are not school. When asked to move up a level we were told no. Our student left the county because our student was not being challenged and we did not want our student in a room with under achievers. We left because we want our student to get a great education not an ok education."

Answer is clear

“The answer to the debate about weapons that were designed for the sole purpose of killing humans quickly and efficiently in a war setting is to ask what you think Christ’s opinion would be. You know the answer, you may not like it, but the answer is clear."

I agree

“I agree that we should use drones where possible so as not to put our young men and women in harm’s way. We have sacrificed too many already."

Guns issue

“After the Georgia Sheriffs Association said officially they will not enforce a firearms ban if passed, I want to see our Sheriff (Al Whittington) say the same thing publicly. Mr Whittington, please let us know where you stand on the issue."

Racist comment

“What a racist bigoted ignorant statement made about physicians with foreign sounding names. What if a physician judged a patient by his last name before treating them. You know a physician is bound by an ancient code to treat the lowest scumbag out there knowing that they'll never get paid and could be sued."

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.
