Rants and raves

THIS IS A QUESTION for Alex Howard. I'd like to ask you, sir, have you lost your mind? Children are not graduating; we're not educating these kids; they are dropping out right and left; and you want to cut a day off the school week. May I remind you that you work for the school board. Your priority should be the children, not cutting budgets, but teaching them.

WESTVIEW CEMETERY needs cleaning up. It doesn't have a big enough crew to clean it. Send some prisoners up there to do the cleaning up in exchange for reduced fines and jail time.

I AM CALLING to agree with the rant about the grocery chains that don't require verification for a senior discount but do require verification to get a carton of wine coolers. A person who is 68 obviously is old enough to get wine coolers, but you don't have to prove your age to get the senior discount. It's ridiculous. It certainly doesn't pass the common sense test.

SAW ON THE INTERNET that Haiti is without a government. To help out, I'm donating one Obama, one Pelosi, one Reid, one Frank, one Coakley and two Clintons. They may keep them permanently. I'd give them a constitution, but I can't find mine right now. Oh, well, they wouldn't follow it anyway.

A BIG RANT to the people who won't pull out of the way for emergency vehicles with flashing lights. One day, when you need help, I hope that other drivers will pull out of the way and let the firetrucks and police reach you.

HEADLINE: "Racial bullying plagues school in Philadelphia." Alas, ignorant courts have outlawed the clear cure for such troubles. The school needs two cops who fear no man working as a team to bust the head of every bully they see.

I JUST WANT to thank all the people who decide when to start paving roadways. This morning I hit a crater at Scott Nixon and Bobby Jones. I now have to purchase a new rim as well as a hubcap and tire for my car.

COULD SOMEONE please put a few more potholes on Reynolds Street? I swear there is at least 15 yards of smooth road left.

A COUPLE OF RANTERS have described the art on the waterworks wall as tacky. Personally, I just don't trust the aesthetic sensibilities of someone who uses the word tacky to describe art.

IT IS EVIDENT by its rulings that the U.S. Supreme Court is no friend of the American public. From its ruling on eminent domain to the latest ruling on corporate political spending/influence peddling, the justices have it in for us, the little people.

Thank you, Ranter#4 - You've

Thank you, Ranter#4 - You've started my day out with a smile! LOL Great idea! However, I'm not sure that even the Haitians are desperate enough to accept that offer....

It would do no good if you

It would do no good if you sent the constitution with Obama, Pelosi, or Reid; those mini dictators don't pay it any mind anyhow.

I'm still trying to find out

I'm still trying to find out what grocery chains offer senior discounts. Most fast food chains offer them, but I don't know of any grocery chains that do.

The supreme court is made up

The supreme court is made up of people who were judges in lower courts before being appointed to the supreme court. Many of the judges in the lower courts are legislating from the bench, so why would you expect them to switch and interpret the constitution instead?

I'd be making jokes if all of London got flattened and it didn't cause more than $25,000 in damage to replace it all like is the case in Port Au Prince.

IF we sent them our so called

IF we sent them our so called government they would still be leaderless. I'm surprised the big "O" hasn't blamed The Haitan earthquake on Bush. we could send Ispy and flailingleaves as the heads of th "UH OH" squad. They could stand around going "UH OH" all the time......Everytime they saw something they don't understand they simply go "UH OH...just like here .....

Leaves, I wasn't listening

Leaves, I wasn't listening when it happened. I only heard the clean-up efforts. I don't have more to add than what WRDW reported 4 1/2 hours ago.

Good morning. I'm trying hard

Good morning. I'm trying hard to be a kinder, gentler jerk in preparation for the new rules for posting in the AC. Having said that, wouldn't it be funny if noone.....noone watched the state of the union address tomorrow night.

O"bama throws the house and

O"bama throws the house and senate dems under the bus ! When questioned about the "back room deals" he stated he hadn't made any back room deals. Like the Queen pelosi and Jester Reid aren't doing his bidding. (Maybe I"ve got that backwards , Hmmmmmm)
