Rants & Raves

PUBLIC SCHOOLS GIVE one test, then another, then another and none of them help. Back before teachers had been brainwashed by college “education” departments, teachers wrote their own test questions, and then they graded each student, and students in general learned very well. Now government holds total control and nobody learns anything.

IF THE GOVERNMENT can tax (punish) us for not doing something, what will come next? My guess is “taxing” us for not voting for their chosen candidate in all elections.

DON’T GET CAUGHT up in the hoopla. Look closely as to what the Supreme Court stated in their ruling on Obamacare when they said that what it amounted to was a tax.

CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS stabbed the taxpaying American citizen in the back twice. Another reason to loathe George Bush.

IT’S A DANG SHAME when people can get to buy lobsters and shrimp with food stamps while you struggle to even buy ramen noodles at more than 15 cents per pack.

RANT TO RCBOE: A new $20 million school, hundreds of instructional and grad coaches, an overstaffed central office and you hit the teachers again with nine furlough days. Every board member who voted for this should be voted out.

I AM VERY disappointed with Chief Justice John Robert’s decision to uphold the individual mandate in Obama’s health care plan as a “tax.” Obama stated that the individual mandate was not a “tax.” As usual, Obama did not “mislead” us; Obama flat out “lied.”

A RANT TO THE Colum­bia County Board of Com­missioners. You have removed the Dumpster from the Evans Town Center Complex that was used to collect recyclable plastic. Evidently some people abused the rules by throwing other things into that Dumpster, which was intended to collect only plastic for recycling. If you have a serious interest in improving our environment, please bring the Dumpster back.

SO MANY PEOPLE getting killed by drunk drivers. The government should take over the alcohol industry like they did the tobacco industry. I’ve never read about a death being caused by a smoking driver.

THE TIME IS NOW. Legalize and tax marijuana or at the least decriminalize growing a small amount for personal use.
