RANTS FOR PRISONS for letting convicted murderers get married in prison. This is insane.
THE AIR FORCE has banned a use of the word “God.” Anytime God wants to swat every Air Force plane from the sky, He can. Our leaders had better wake up.
IN 1943, PRESIDENT Franklin D. Roosevelt started withholding money from people’s paychecks, a sign that the IRS didn’t trust Americans while insisting that Americans trust the IRS. Now we see President Obama using the IRS to “enforce” health care. In a sane world, health care is not something that is “enforced.” Obama has invented a phony connection between taxes and health as his mechanism to flush freedom down the drain.
BECAUSE OBAMA IS president, the White House is obviously integrated. It can’t get any higher than that, yet federal courts continue to ride herd on good Southerners 40 years after a court desegregated Augusta schools. When is it enough?
RANTERS HAVE POOR math skills. We went from two garbage pickups, one recycle, one yard waste and one bulk waste for a total of five services each week. Take away one garbage pickup still leaves you with four services each week, a reduction of only 20 percent. The cost did not change because you have to pay the 20 percent for cleaner air. Or would you prefer to have to have to have a clean air sticker on you vehicle every year? How much do you think that will cost you?
RANT TO THE EDITORIAL staff for highlighting anti-smoking at bars. The Chronicle has posted numerous editorials against government overreach and regulations in many areas, including health care. I would much rather share the roads with a person who just smoked half a pack of cigarettes than someone who has two mixed drinks at a bar. Also, Marie Antoinette did not say “Let them eat cake”; she refused to disclaim the rumor because she thought it was just too silly.
MY RECYCLABLES HAVE been out for two days and no one had picked them up. I have called the 311 line numerous times and have had no response from them.
RAVES TO MR. MITCHELL at the Harlem IGA. He is always so nice to people. He does his work with a smile.
