Rant and Rave for 02/22/13

MOULTRIE — Another site?

“So what’s this about someone wanting to change the location of the new high school? I’ve heard it from several sources. Will the school board please address this?"

Drone issue

“In regard to the person who said using drones avoids due process: Let me explain something. If we have justification to send in troops to take some thug out, then it certainly stands to good reason that we use a robot instead of our soldiers to do it where it’s feasible. When we are at war, and we should only be when absolutely necessary, then due process does not supercede the context of ‘clear and present danger.’"

Conspiracies

“I’ve never seen so many conspiracy mongers in my life, suggesting that our government is going to turn drones on the American people. What a crock!"

Observation

“Someone mentioned the TV series ‘The Walking Dead.’ Did you know that this show has high ratings? And that indicates that we have a lot of mentally dead in our society. By the way, a zombie is supposed to be dead to start with. So how does it know if it’s been shot?"

It's earned

“Where I come from respect is earned! If you think Obama has earned it then you are sadly mistaken. He has done nothing but take money out of our pockets and food off our tables/food prices, gas prices,insurance cost,and now the cost of our ammunition. I could go on but words are limited."

The majority

“Unless they changed the system when I wasn’t looking, a majority of voters elected President Obama the first time and the second time."

Deer-killing AK-47s

“Oh Goodness! It appears we have a bunch of good-old-boys, armed with AK's and dressed in Camo, that think they can prevent our military from taking over our nation, should they desire.

"Listen camo comedians, you would not even know where the drone was before it leaves you in a pile of smoking ashes.

"While I admire your ambition, and thanks for your dedication to our country, if you really want protection from an over-throw, you best count on a military coup d'état and forget having old Billy Bob covering your back side with his deer-killing AK.

"By the way, I do not intend to give up my guns, to anybody, for any reason, but I also do not need an AK to hunt, nor to protect my home and family."

Gun issue

“I guess nothing would scare a terrorist anymore than a tobacco chewing redneck sitting on this tailgate bragging about the size of his gun."

Soccer

“Yes indeed, give soccer a try. I became a fan of it several years ago and our teams here have provided me much enjoyment."

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

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.
