Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

WHY DON’T BANKS allow a certain amount over the limit to good customers’ checking accounts? Surely they would charge for the use of this money, but it would be nice to know that it was there. The customers would appreciate it.

I’M SORRY FOR THE LOSS of Whitney Houston. All these wonderful people showed up for her funeral. Buy where were they when she was alive and she really needed help from them?

WHOEVER STOLE MY CHANGE purse, which included my driver’s license, health and business cards, at Subway or China Express on Peach Orchard Road, no good luck will come to you.

RANT FOR OUR GOVERNMENT. There have been more chrome rims bought with Medicaid money than anything else. Abomination of hardworking taxpayer’s money. Free cell phones for deadbeats is an abomination also.

OBAMA HAS DONE a great job of brainwashing supporters with the belief that the wealthy are not doing their “fair” share and therefore the wealthy are to be blamed for the debt and downfall of our economy. This blame and pitiful excuse has been used as a cover-up for failures by Obama.

WAY TO GO, RICK SANTORUM, for standing up to the liberal media and letting your views be known concerning Obama administration. Seems it’s perfectly OK for media to attack Repubs and Conservatives, but to go after Obama and the Dems is totally off limits. Keep up the good work, Rick!

A BIG RANT TO the superintendent of Warren County Schools. Why cancel the playoff game with Hancock County? Why not play the game without spectators? You stated that you weren’t worried about the players only the crowds. Think outside the box and don’t punish those that weren’t responsible!

A RANT TO A local middle school. This is one of the worst years my daughter has ever experienced. The discipline is awful and she has a difficult time learning due to behavior issues.

A RANT TO RCBOE who continues to send student criminals to tribunals wasting thousands of dollars while rarely backing teachers over the behavior issues they encounter. The principals only serve as puppets for the BOE as the students have no fear of consequences of their actions. The principals fearing for their reputation continue to allow parents and their hoodlum kids to dictate discipline policy or the lack thereof.

I think I've found the answer

I think I've found the answer to our problems ...

2. Feminism can be very sexy. When females are in charge, everyone lives better (including the males). While male chimps run the show, among bonobos, it's the females who are in charge, with much better quality of life for everyone involved (see #1).

3. Sisterhood is powerful. Although female bonobos are about 20% smaller than males--roughly the same ratio as in chimps and humans--they dominate males by sticking together. If a male gets out of line and harasses a female, ALL the other females will gang up on him. This sisterly solidarity, combined with lots of sex, tends to keep the males behaving politely.

A RANT TO A local middle school. This is one of the worst years my daughter has ever experienced. The discipline is awful and she has a difficult time learning due to behavior issues.

This is the biggest problem in our schools imo.....get the backbone to throw some jerks out of the school system...send them home to mommie & let them home school.

Hi & good am this Saturday morning!

Definition of DOUBLE

Definition of DOUBLE ENTENDRE
1: ambiguity of meaning arising from language that lends itself to more than one interpretation

Yes..yes...I can see where some can see a double meaning in my words.....esp. you RM....but then you know me sooo well.

If y'all would just give me a key to the room, I'd quietly slip in and not wake anyone up. Ask the clerk for an extra room keycard.

I was just looking at the thread about showing ID & it sez..

The agency said tens of thousands of the state’s minorities might not be able to cast ballots under the new law because they don’t have the right photo ID.

Say WHAT....don't we show id for EVERYTHING in todays world..
