Rant and Rave for 12/08/12

MOULTRIE — Your complaint

“To the county employee: You have a right to complain? Talk to some people in the private sector. You might be surprised what you find out about raises and insurance costs."

Not a waste

“Gifted meeting was a waste of time? Being asked to complete a survey and get a better understanding of the direction the gifted program is taking is a waste of time? Is one hour for your child's education a waste of time? Hardly. I can tell you what is a waste of time...my child sitting in class day after day without being challenged. Be glad that the board is trying to provide a better option for your child."

It's enough

“I am an accelerated student at WJW. I have heard about the comment in the Rant and Rave about whether we get enough work or not, and whether it is challenging enough for us! I have to take 8th grade classes, in 7th grade! If this is not enough, I am constantly pressured by my teachers, my parents, and other people I know to only make good grades.

"The work is hard. I admit it. I have to study for things that I thought would be pretty easy. I can't believe someone who doesn't do my work everyday, has the nerve to say we don't get enough work. Please, join our classrooms, and when you leave you will have a different thought. The work is more than enough! Thanks."

Comparison

“17.6% Hispanic population ------- what is the adult to children ratio? That 'math' needs to be incorporated into the game if someone wants to prove a point.

"It's not just apples in a barrel, it's also the number of big apples and little apples in there too!"

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.
