Rant and Rave for 01/23/13

MOULTRIE — Childish jabber

“I’ve never heard such childish jabber as I have over the gun issue. No one is knocking on your door to take your pump shotgun. No one is taking your pistol. And if you contend that forbiding someone to have a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds is ludicrous because you can have 2 magazines, then get you 2 dadgum magazines and you’re good to go."

That smell

“I  just read the article about the foul smell at the jail. Since the smell becomes stronger after dishes are finished. You need to check the hot water heaters for stagnant water. If this is it, there is a very strong something like sulphur and sewer. I know this from experience. Good luck. I hope this is it."

Our buzzards

“So I’m riding downtown today and on South Main Street there are three buzzards in a front yard. You know this is getting a bit serious."


“When you see vehicles in the middle of the road that are broken down, why don't these people slow down and move over? Or stop and ask if those people need help? Southern hospitality is slowly disappearing around here. Remember folks, what would you want someone to do if you were broken down in the middle of the road?"


“Now I know how to increase attendance at the polls. Put a question on the ballot to repeal the 2nd Amendment."

Not squirrels

“Well, Mr. Gun Laws. It ain't squirrels kicking in doors and robbing folks. A single shot shotgun is slightly more useful than a stick when you have four invaders determined to rape and kill."

Check Romans

“Here is something better, Romans 13:1. ‘Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed.’ You have been told not to distribute religious materials while on school property. Therefore you sin by disobeying the law of man."

  • Thoughts on Sabal Trail

    Safety, public input, federal monitoring, jobs, tax revenue, exceed federal safety requirements, reliability, affordable, clean, thorough review, latest proven technologies: These are all good little meta tags and nice-sounding words and phrases Andrea Grover, spokeswoman for the Sabal Trail Transmission project, used in her recent My Word about that company's proposed natural-gas pipeline.

  • Uplift our form of government; go vote today!

    Today is our election runoff. This is a great opportunity for some serious flag-waving. It’s also a great opportunity to uplift the very fundamentals of our democratic republic — a system where we choose leaders to make decisions for us. And it’s a time when we can honor those who have sacrificed to help secure our system of government.

    Having been in the news business for many years, I have occasionally been asked what was the funniest or strangest story I’ve ever covered. Well, there have been a number of instances along the way that brought some chuckles, otherwise making my day.

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.
