Rant and Raves for Nov. 25

Economic blame game

“Why do Georgia’s Republicans, to hear them tell it the party of personal liberty and personal responsibility, blame Georgia’s economic woes on Pres. Obama, not Georgia’s General Assembly? I think the GA GOP would have us believe the tides are caused by the sun, the wind, and the rotation of the earth, not the moon.”

Can’t legislate it

“Legislating special treatment for wealthy people is like legislating special treatment for people who are well-dressed and physically attractive. Everyone knows they already receive a lot of special treatment. When casting around for great ideas that will change Georgia for the better, how would special treatment for the wealthy ever get on the agenda? Millionaire lawmakers?”

Talk is ridiculous

“The talk of the states seceding is ridiculous. If those states did secede, they would have to form their own military, get a passport to cross into the U.S. and, to top it off, all of the state officials in Washington D.C would be dismissed immediately. There would be ‘no fly zones’ and such. I can't believe this talk is actually still going on.”

Chaos at the shop

“Black Friday chaos has proven once again that the common man has no common sense. Our country continues its downward slide with ignorance increasing and civility becoming a thing of the past. As waist sizes explode, IQs tank.”
