Rants & Raves

  • Follow Metro

NEVER TRUST ANYONE who has two first names, for instance Fred Russell. I mean really.

A RANT FOR our elected representatives. Social Security is going broke. For 2011 the maximum taxable earnings amount for Social Security taxes is $106,800. Those who make a million dollars a year only pay Social Security taxes on $106,800. Once again our congressmen are watching out for themselves and their rich cronies. This tax should not be capped; it should be a progressive tax with no income limits. Write your congressmen today.

I SEE MOSES TODD IS in the news again. Come on back Moses; we need a mayor.

WHY AREN’T PEOPLE ashamed that their children are hungry? Hair extensions, gold jewelry, acrylic nails, tanning salons and designer clothes don’t feed the children they choose to have.

DOES IT REALLY strike fear in the hearts of evil-doers to know they may get three life sentences, or life-plus-100 years for a crime? Stupid and a waste of time.

HOW MUCH MONEY was paid for that very ugly chandelier at the dental school? That guy got over on some people. It’s ugly not cool.

OUR CURRENT government is sowing the seeds of revolution again.

WHY TAKE A helicopter up in the air to search for marijuana when the three guys selling it can be plainly seen selling it out of the section 8 house across the street?

WHY IS THE TSA frisking blue-eyed, leggy blondes, old people, cripples and wee kiddies? Your bomber will be dark hired, brown eyed and creepy looking. Everyone else needs to be let past without so much as a shoe check. Look for the obvious. Do some profiling.

DON’T SELL YOUR GOLD! It’s all a way to control us when gold is our only money. You give it up now and you will have nothing when the currency is devalued and eliminated.

THIS IS A RANT to the woman in the restaurant a couple of weeks ago who changed the baby’s dirty, stinky diaper right there at the table and then laid it on the floor still stinking so bad we had to tell the waitress. She then had to dispose of it for the lady. I feel so sorry for that baby because she didn’t even go wash her hands. How many germs are you giving back to the baby? Didn’t you know the restaurant had a bathroom with a changing table and a nice sink so you could have washed your hands? You had two other ladies with you. Shame on you.

Rant 2> The person paying

Rant 2>
The person paying social security on $106,800 only draws from that amount also.l They are limited in what they can receive just as the amount of taxable income is limited.
Congress continues to talk about "means testing" on social security and medicare which might be a good thing. At least it would be worth considering...
I'll bet the reason it was begun was meant to be fair...Yep.

I have dark hair and brown

I have dark hair and brown eyes and I take offense to your insinuation that I might be a terrorist. And what does “creepy looking” mean? Pedophiles are creepy; terrorists are suspicious (generally speaking). Your simple-minded suggestion speaks almost as loudly as your inadequate spelling and poor grammar usage.

Bernie Sanders is introducing a bill that eliminates the cap on SS deductions for those earning over $250K a year.
The only President in my lifetime that has granted amnesty for illegals has been Reagan.

Socialists......bless their

Socialists......bless their little hearts. Always looking for a way to take more of someone else's money. Lift the cap on SS taxes. Make it a "progressive" tax. Means test to keep people who have paid the most SS taxes for 40 or 50 years from drawing as much as "poor" people. The Socialists are always looking for ways to take more money from some and give it to others. The have no concern for what is fair. There is a cap on SS taxes because there is a cap on what people can draw. Why should anyone pay SS taxes on $400K when they can only draw benefits on $106K? Why should they pay SS taxes at a higher, "progressive" rate when they can only draw lower benefits than the "I didn't pay anything into the system" SSI rate? And "means testing"" after paying into the system for 40 or 50 years is just outright robbery. "Oh, you've done pretty well during your life John so we are not going to give you what we said we were". Get over it people. There is no moral or legal imperative that says people who make a little more money than we do should have to carry the rest of us and feed our greed. If you want to fix Social Security you should start by looking at all of the misnomerd "disabled" drug addicts and frauders drawing SSI that have never paid a dime into the system. Social Security was intended to be a retirement supplement and was never intended to take care of drug addicts, people who get tired of working and get some hack doctor to say they are disabled, and 20 year old widows and their children who's young husband overdosed or got killed driving drunk. SSI killed Social Security, not the baby boomers, "wealthy" people, or the lack of enough SS taxes. The only problem with well off baby boomers drawing full Social Security is that other people stole the money before they got old enough to draw what what they paid for. You want to fix Social Security? Start cleaning out the SSI rat's nest.

I almost, but not quite, feel sorry for those at MSNBC.
What a bunch of unprofessionals. The only requirement for making a guest appearance is knowing how to play the blame game it would seem.
And poor, poor Ronni Reagan..

Techfan says: "The only President in my lifetime that has granted amnesty for illegals has been Reagan."

You might want to research that:

The amnesty of 1986 was supposed to be a "one time only" amnesty. Yet since 1986, Congress passed a total of 7 amnesties for illegal aliens:

1. The Immigration and Reform Control Act (IRCA) Amnesty of 1986 - the "one-time only" blanket amnesty for some 2.8 million illegal aliens.
2. Section 245(i) The Amnesty of 1994 - a temporary rolling amnesty for 578,000 illegal aliens.
3. Section 245(i) The Extension Amnesty of 1997 - an extension of the rolling amnesty created in 1994.
4. The Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA) Amnesty of 1997 - an amnesty for nearly one million illegal aliens from Central America.
5. The Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act Amnesty (HRIFA) of 1998 - an amnesty for 125,000 illegal aliens from Haiti.
6. The Late Amnesty of 2000 - an amnesty for approximately 400,000 illegal aliens who claimed they should have been amnestied under the 1986 IRCA amnesty.
7. The LIFE Act Amnesty of 2000 - a reinstatement of the rolling Section 245(i) amnesty to an estimated 900,000 illegal aliens.

The only reason Obama pulled

The only reason Obama pulled this "amnesty" stunt was because his popularity among Hispanics was reaching an all time low.Also he knows they will probably end up as Democratic voters.

WHY TAKE A helicopter,

WHY TAKE A helicopter, because it's so much more fun.

I am not impressed with the Gold Rush, remember the federal government confiscated the peoples gold in 1933.

And the diaper thing, beyond gross.

"Social Security was intended

"Social Security was intended to be a retirement supplement and was never intended to take care of drug addicts, people who get tired of working and get some hack doctor to say they are disabled."

Common sense comments, like this one, and comments from several posters here today make me proud that others feel the same way I do. It's reassuring to know that although we may be labeled racist, extremists, or terrorist, our opinions are not yet drowned out by those who, in my opinion, may not have the best interest of the United States at the center of their beliefs or intent.

Whatever happened to words

Whatever happened to words like "man' and 'woman'? The rant about a mother changing a baby's diaper, said there were 2 other 'ladies' at the table. They were not ladies! Remember the shooting at a town or country commission meeting? An eye-witness said the 'gentleman' just started shooting. Maybe because of homosexuals, transvestites, gender-benders, migrant-gender, mixed-gender, etc, man and women have become passe ........

Changing a diaper inside a restaurant is gross. On the table or on the floor. Go to the "ladies" or "mens" room and do the dirty, don't use a dining room.Can you imagine what the women's house must be like. YUCK!

What a common person that was

What a common person that was to change a diaper in a resturant with patrons eating. No respect for anything. I think if I had been the manager I would have asked her to leave without paying and also to pick up the diaper on the floor. I agree with Willow and the poster who said they wondered what her house looked like. I bet awful and nasty.
