Rant and Rave for 1/11/13

— — — —  

Offensive

“I send my elementary school aged children to a local public school to obtain an education. Recently it has been brought to my attention that at least one local school allows New Testament Bibles to be given out at school, during school. This is absolutely asinine!

 I am sure people in our community of other faiths such as Jewish, Hindu and Islamic people are completely offended. Maybe these faiths should openly share the Torah, Bhagavad-gita and the Quran in our public schools.

 I would really be intrigued to see the opposition that they face. Also have any of the arrogant Christians ever considered that Atheists live in this community as well? It is time that people in this community respect people of other faiths."

A danger to us

“Please, someone tell me where to complain. My neighbor has a leashed pitbull and every other day he gets loose. His house is not fenced and I have small children who cannot go outside anymore! I have called the police but they didn't do anything but to make a report. Are they waiting to see children get hurt?"

Animal control

“When is Colquitt County going to see the need for a county run Animal Control? There is no animal control in Colquitt County, we need our Commissioners to put into place animal laws and an organization that is able and willing to enforce the laws. When a taxpaying citizen telephones for help on behalf of an animal a qualified organization should respond, with employees that are well trained problem solvers with customer service skills as well as the ability to assess and handle any animal situation."

Just don't vote

“If you're tired of voting for the ‘lesser of two evils  and would like a box for voting ‘none of the above’ just stay home. Politics has always been about voting for the lesser of two evils. Most people who enter politics do it so they can exert their powers over your life."

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.
