Rant and Rave for 01/22/13

MOULTRIE — Rambo factor

“Oh my gosh, under the new gun law proposals I won’t get to buy an assault weapon. But that’s okay, I still have a download of ‘Rambo’ so I can stimulate my testosterone levels."

Need a spine

“GOP: Show us some spine. You are soon to be non-existant, unless you do what the American people elected you to do - stand up for conservative principles. You go along with Obama and the Democrats so as to avoid blame for anything that goes wrong.

"Have you not noticed that you get the blame anyway? Has is ever occurred to you that if you stood up for the principles you once held, that you might actually get credit?"

No accountability

“You’re right about no accountability with our welfare system. I like the idea that a person getting food stamps must be screened for drugs. And there should be some way to account for those people who sell the food stamps to get drug money."

PTSD issue

“I Have PTSD from the war in Vietnam and I don't want this label to be on my driver's Licenses. Does this fool senator have nothing better to do with his time. An to the Veterans that want it on their licenses let it be an individual thing, this should not come from a bill to the state house."

Needing help

“If you can afford a Caddy, YOU and your family should be taking care of your grandmother...not us. You are not alone. The mentality of today's world is If the government is giving money away, I'm getting MY cut". Maybe folks should sacrifice a tad more and settle for a Ford. Then the folks that REALLY need help can get a little bit more help."

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.
