Rant and Rave for 02/24/13

MOULTRIE — Thugs beware

“Out on West Boulevard, there’s a pair of tennis shoes hanging from a tree limb. I’m told that this is how some of the local gangs mark their territories. By the way, to whichever bunch of thugs put this here, you didn’t clear it with me and my friends. So if you think you’re going to intimidate us, then you  may wish you were back in Old Mexico when the smoke clears. Meanwhile, could the city come by and take down those silly shoes."

Me too

“Oh my! I had the exact same experience while my child was in school in Colquitt County High. The administrator agreed that the teacher had made a mistake and apologized to me and my child, but then said he HAD to side with the teacher because "his hands were tied." This administrator even asked the teacher to apologize to my child, but the teacher would not and my child was punished. This must be the same administrator."

My experience

“My guess is that if a student goes to class to learn and really tries to behave, he or she will have no problems with the teachers. It’s just a hunch on my part because that’s the way it worked when I was in school."

Only God

“Disagreeing with Mr. Obama does not mean the same as hating him. Facts make it evident that Mr. O's policies are not helping anyone. We are so much worse off than 5 years ago, it's frightening. Only God can bring America out of this. He has the answers, we just need to heed His Word."

We need books

“My child attends WJW Middle School, and many of you know the students are not able to bring textbooks home. This is becoming frustrating to my child as well as myself. At times the copied material does not contain enough information to fully understand the particular topic. To the board of education and to whom it concern, let’s do all we can to enhance our children's education!"

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.
