Rants & Raves

Comments from readers:

THE APOLOGY WAS phony. Obama must think the American people are stupid. Well, we’re not.

 

THE RECENT OPERATION Thunder found some of the major traffic issues discovered earlier this year still prevalent. Child-seat violations topping the list with more than 50 citations. Parents should wake up to the fact that they are putting their children at risk of major injuries even with a minor accident if they don’t observe the basic rules required with child seats. There is plenty of advice out there on how to do things right!

 

HERE WE ARE trying hard to instill the value of truthfulness in our children and at the same time we have our president blatantly lying. (You can keep your insurance, etc.)

 

TO ALL THE RANTS and raves about road directions, just go to the news outlets in Atlanta. Circled by Interstate 285, they will say “there is a wreck on 285 East or West or South or North.” This could be describing any place on that large circle. At least in Athens they label their circle as the inner and outer loop.

 

SPEAKING OF OPERATION Thunder (AKA Shooting Fish in a Barrel), how about some thunder with the red-light runners, stop-sign runners, same vehicles with red dealer tags for months and months, oldie moldies without brake lights? You know, the other traffic enforcement.

 

OUR NEIGHBOR TOLD me I should have never had my last child, and was “stupid” for getting pregnant with an existing health condition. I was heartbroken at her cruelty. When our daughter came home and saw me crying, she suggested that we pray for our neighbor. Hmmmmm, some “mistake,” huh? She actually has a heart and prayed for our unkind, cat-loving neighbor.

 

I AM SO sick of listening to oldies but goodies from radio stations that play the same songs over and over.

 

THERE ARE GOOD reasons why a lot of folks are bus riders: Can’t afford to own cars, cannot legally drive cars (remember DUI offenders), can’t see to drive, cannot hear to drive, can’t think to drive (plenty of mentally challenged folks), lack the legs to drive. Now do you see why it’s so important to have bus transportation available? And the shame of having no buses on Veterans Day is that plenty of veterans depend on the bus transport.
