Rant and Rave for 3/20/12

MOULTRIE — No great issue

“Voter ID fraud is no great problem despite Republican alarms. Absentee ballots are, with cases often showing one crook voting dozens of them to suit himself or herself. Why doesn't the GOP attack real problems?"

What's wrong?

“What is wrong with military doctors that will send someone with brain and other injuries back into combat?"

Can they sue?

“Obviously the soldier who snapped and killed all those people is going to be put away in prison. So, can the family, being deprived of their husband and father, sue the military for putting him back into action when he was already determined to have emotional/stress issues?"

Start at home

“Agree with the ranter, it is time to stop the blame game and get off our lazy tush. How can we expect change when we continue to be comfortable in the way things are.

"We complain about not having Red Lobster or Olive Garden or any other restaurants come to Moultrie Stop driving out of town to eat at them. When was the last time you did any shopping in downtown Moultrie, with local merchants? We need to start at home doing the things that will help our community grow. Complaining has not work, so roll up your sleeves and lets get to work."

Suggestion

“I believe I have a simple solution for the sex ed issue. Have it an elective course for the parents who want to have their child learn this from a course in school sign their child up at start of the year.

"For those who want to teach at home let them.

"The end."

Priorities issue

“The problem is that the priorities of the new CEO at CRMC are all wrong. Quality patient care should come first, not the appearance of the facility! Sure maintenance and upkeep are important but should not be done at the expense of quality patient care. Cutting staff at the same time as increasing services and spending money on renovations does not make sense."

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.
