Rant and Raves for Nov. 16

Lots of overlap

“I bet if you matched up the names of those signing petitions to secede, and those who were so gung-ho over the 'birther movement,’ you'd see a lot of overlap!”

Thanks teachers

“Thank-you to the teachers at the Potter's House for the Thanksgiving feast. The children singing and the decorations were great! So was the food and company!”

Form another group

“Thomas Sowell suggests the formation of an expert group to counter lies told by Democratic political candidates. To be fair, how about the formation of such a group for the Republicans as well? They would have been pretty busy keeping up with Romney and Ryan. Or, how about we just employ non-partisan pundits if we can find one?”

What was he thinking?

“When Bill Clinton left office in 2001, he left this country with a budget surplus that was reducing our deficit each year. Most economist were predicting that the US would be out of debt by 2013. Then comes George W. Bush with his tax cuts and massive borrowing; he vandalizes the future. What was he thinking? This is just a fact and no amount of spin will ever change it.”

Go if you want to

“To those Tea Party ‘Patriots’ who want to secede.....GO. You can leave any time you get ready. This ridiculous talk of secession is childish sour grapes over a lost election. Grow up. We survived Bush.”

Another view

“To ‘personal issue’ the government shouldn't intrude into our lives, but it does constantly, and you'll see more of it under Obamacare. As far as using government to force religious views on people, laws designed to prevent you from being murdered have their basis in a ‘religious’ view. Life is sacred and deserves institutional protection, even in the womb.”
