Rant and Rave for 01/17/13

MOULTRIE — Think about it

“Apparently if Bibles are being handed out at schools, then our churches and their associations are not doing what they profess to be and do."

MADD's actions

“After seeing the article about MADD, and all the info that came along with it, I am wondering why MADD is not taking a more prominent stand against all the illegals and their DUIs in the county? They are the one group who needs to stand up and do something to get it stopped."

Good point

“Your editorial about only 8 percent of registered voters turning out in the recent election makes a good point. We have no problem sending our troops into hostile lands to uphold the ideology that allows us to vote, but when it comes right down to us uplifting their sacrifices in such fundamental fashion, we are pathetic to that cause."

Apathetic

“Yes, as a group we Americans are very apathetic when it comes to voting. And it does seem that we have embraced an ‘auto pilot’ concept. That is why our nation is in such a mess and we are void of strong leadership."

In lockstep

“It would be funny if it wasn't so serious. What am I talking about? The way almost every member of the Republican congress has been in lockstep on every asinine proposal just as long as it defies Obama. That is, of course until hurricane Sandy. Now northeastern Republicans are seeing just how ridiculous their brothers and sisters have gotten. Denying relief funds for disaster victims purely for political reasons. Of course, politics is local and I just wonder how many of these outraged Republicans would be on the bandwagon if it wasn't their district that had been hit by the storm."

Consider this

“Have any of you ever considered that Cadillac driver using the EBT card may be running errands for an invalid who cannot shop on their own? You people condemning others, with absolutely no information to substantiate your claims, are the most ignorant class of people on earth."

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.
