Rant and Rave for 02/09/13

MOULTRIE — Voting booth

“We have term limits. It’s called the voting booth. Perhpas we should form organizations to limit our lawmakers to two terms by vote. That would put the onus where it should be... on the public. The idea that our lawmakers will impose term limits on themselves when they have such great benefits is totally absurd."

Postal Service

“The U.S. Postal Service has served us well for many years. Times, however, change. And that change has brought us FedX, United Parcel, email, etc. It makes sense that the Postal Service will cut days to meet deficits."

The drone issue

“I would much rather my government send a drone to blow up a terrorist outfit than to send my son in to possibly die or come home paralyzed and have to fight for benefits for the rest of his life."

Bad patients

“You know, there are such things as bad patients. They are hard to deal with and no matter what hospital they go to, they will complain. Most likely they have complained about something all their lives."

Me too

“I, too, have seen some of the horrendous videos that you are talking about and I do believe that a child who grows up in that culture, watching such violence, stands a good chance of emulating that type of behavior later. Some of the videos I’ve seen also have a subtle theme that can instill hatred in children ... something that can manifest itself tragically in later years."

The way I feel

“I thought I would never say something like this, but I’m glad that person who kidnapped that little boy and held him in that bunker away from his loved ones for all those many days did not make it out alive. God forgive me, but that’s just the way I feel about it."

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.
