Rants & Raves

Headline: “Vintage fur provides guilt-free pleasures.” Alas, many modern Americans have fell into the guilt trap about wearing fur coats. Those same suckers wear leather shoes and eat hamburgers and can’t even make the connection.

Love R&R. One and only time I have written one, but I had to respond to Sunday ex-FBI agent. If you 100 or so ex-FBI agents that would move to this area, please, please invite them. P.S. , tell them to bring plenty of ammo.

The Tucson sheriff blamed the tragedy on conservatives wanting their country back. Clearly, that sheriff is a sadly angry man. And wouldn’t you be angry if your name was Clarence Dupnik?

Frank Rotondo, head of the GA Association of Police Chiefs ,  says he “understands how officers could feel trapped (by seat belts ) in their cars.” Presumably ,  Rotondo doesn’t think civilians have such feelings. Alas, while seat belts are generally a good, safe bet, the law requiring their use is nothing more than Big Brother enforcing another unconstitutional law.

If the Native Americans would have secured the borders against the whites, this country would be a good place to live, but they couldn’t foresee the future. Too bad. Just look at us now.

I and many others agree with Chris Matthews and the others at MSNBC. They tell the truth, which is more than I can say for Fox News. As for Sarah Palin, I wouldn’t vote for her if she were running for dog catcher.

In response to your article about  the  Columbia County   tag situation and the money being paid : The one-time fee was fine. I had no problem with it. I had two of the wildlife tags and I couldn’t wait to turn them in because I’m not going to pay for the problems the elected officials made. I’m not going to pay for them to ride around the country on my dollar.

G’mornin’ Lame Friday.

G’mornin’ Lame Friday. Nothing to report. All is well.

1) Okay, if you think it is guilt then all right.
It’s likely the mass media brainwashing of the folks who like wearing fur into thinking the animals are suffering while the coat is being worn…
Look, hunting for food is one thing, hunting for profit or sport is cruel and selfish.

2) You folks who love killing people because they don’t measure up to your high standards are the ones who will have the price to pay when God calls you into account.

This kind of comment should be flagged as a terrorist threat against anyone who doesn’t like it.
Where’s the censorship now?
I have a right to think the statement threatens anyone who doesn’t like it.
Should I report it?

3) What’s wrong w having a funny sounding name?
Don’t like him?
Don’t move there.

4) Seat belts save lives.
Don’t want to wear it?
Don’t.
You run the risk of a ticket and perhaps your life.
Society enacts laws intended to protect its citizens.
Fine, or go get yourself killed.

5) Natives didn’t define borders like we do w political boundaries.
They shared the land and its produce.
Too bad the comment is blatantly racist.
Need some moderation on this one as well.
One of these days I’ll learn the subtleties between what is acceptable to say or not…
…I guess it is a matter of opinion.

6) Are you insane?
Media pundits tell the biggest lies of them all.
My God man, you watch too much TV and must not get out enough to make fair comparisons about what they say.

7) You’re saying you protest the fees paying for CC officials to fuel their trips, so you gave your tags back? Didn’t you pay for those tags?
Did you get a refund?
Not sure I understand what you are saying, since I don’t hunt wild animals for sport.

Have a good weekend and stay away from the cowboys.
I hear they wear six shooters and spurs and like to ride all night long.
Any of ‘em from TX or OK? Then they ain’t cowboys.

God bless n G’day.

Zeno Elia #5 I think you are

Zeno Elia #5 I think you are wrong about native Americans. They held their hunting grounds etc very much to the use of the tribe or nation. Like all people they fought over land, resources etc. The Crows fought the Sioux etc. The native Americans formed alliances to their benefit etc. Why do you think they are that much differant than we are?

Chris Matthews is now

Chris Matthews is now attacking Congresswoman Bachmann. He seems to have a real phobia about conservative women, especially if they are remotely attractive. Apparently attractive women, who happen to be strong and can think for themselves, scare Matthews. Matthews should be sending Palin candy and flowers since he was pretty much just another cable TV also ran commentator before she came along. Apparently liberal Democrats are all in favor of diversity unless a woman or a black person happens to be a strong conservative. Matthews then immediately starts calling them a "nutcase" and worse. I guess we conservatives just need to find some ugly women to put in leadership positions.......but alas most of the really ugly ones are already taken. Matthews is nothing more than an intentionally created CNN attack dog for a failing network trying to bolster their ratings. CNN needed an antithesis for Beck and Matthews got the nod. The problem is that Matthews mostly just spends his time ranting and attacking Republican females. And he fails miserably at proving his irrational rants with facts, figures, and evidence like Beck does so well. So, you like Matthews and CNN and I like Beck and FOX. I don't think your Rant or my response changed anyone's mind but I try to never let an unsubstantiated, illogical, partisan rant go unanswered. I will play "Yea for my side" with you if it makes you feel better.

Ranter # 6.Voting for a dog

Ranter # 6.Voting for a dog catcher. I wonder if she voted in 2008.
Since she sure didn't vote for Palin then I reckon she voted for the other....

Zeno- It isn't cynicism- it

Zeno- It isn't cynicism- it is a stereo typing of native Americans, if any thing it is the opposit of cynicism and looking at the American Indian as the noble savage. American Indians are like all people, political in nature and developed systems to deal with the problems of life. Some could be noted for their ferocity in battle and brutality to captives etc. etc.....not all that differant..

"If the Native Americans

"If the Native Americans would have secured the borders against the whites, this country would be a good place to live, but they couldn’t foresee the future. Too bad. Just look at us now."

They were willing to share the land with these foreign people and they took over, I guess modern Americans are afraid of the same thing, but how can you admonish people for doing that your people did earlier and how is stealing the land you have really make it yours in the first place.....

WalMart will change the way

WalMart will change the way people eat....
WalMart has decided to shape what people eat....don't laugh....because they will do it.
As the largest grocer in the US they have the power to move mountains....they can transform the market place & help Americans put healthier food on their table...what takes the government years to accomplish wil only take months for WalMart....
Now if we could only get them to work on our failing schools & bus problems..
I would be willing to turn the school system over to the leaders of WalMart anytime. :)

onlysaneoneleft, If you are

onlysaneoneleft, If you are not Native American, then please pack your bag return to your area of origin, probably north Africa since most of humanity appears to have originated there. Please find a worthy native american to give your property to, or maybe they need to return to northern asia since that seems to be their area of origin, unlsee they to want to get back to their "roots" in northern Africa. I think Northern Africa may get a little crowed. Of course some south Americans may have originated in the Pacific..but again back to Africa...

stain do you know that we are

stain do you know that we are free to be individuals and to think for ourselves? We are each different. So you want to take my freedom to form my own opinions away from me? Good luck with that, because it ain't gonna happen.
