Rant and Rave for 4/11/12

MOULTRIE — Burns me up

“I don’t give a flying rip where the sagging pants came from. But when I’m in town with my wife and some guy is walking by with his drawers showing, it burns me up that someone will show such disrespect. This isn’t about culture. This is about ignorance ... downright stupidity."

Maybe a pub

“Today I drove over to the Intermodal Facility. It’s really pretty. I like the stone and the green trim. Since we don’t know how or if this thing will be used, I suggest with a little help it could have the ambience of an Irish pub."

Poor planning

“So we have a very expensive and very new Social Security office that will close. And we have a $1.2 million Intermodal facility that we don’t know how will be used. Looks like we’ve got several million dollars in buildings here that are the result of poor government planning. Add to that the fact that our mental health facility was closed, shifting that burden to other agencies (no savings, probably increased expenses.)"

Loud music

“Moultrie has an ordinance about loud music in cars. I live in an apartment on the third floor. One came by and I could feel it through the floor the bass was so high. Why doesn't the Moultrie Police Department do something about it?"

Welfare

“Well not to be biased. I have no problem with deserving families getting help from the government in this country, but what about the person in line at the grocery store with an Iphone and a Gucci purse buying groceries with food stamps. If they can afford such luxuries then they can afford to feed their children with their own money not the US government’s.

"The problem with this country now is people think that they are owed something. Nobody owes you anything. I know jobs are scarce but put a little effort into finding one."

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.
