Rants & Raves - May 22

TIFTON —

Political ads seem to be designed to sway the votes of a bunch of simpletons, i.e., us. “Clean up the mess in Washington” is a big favorite as is “repeal Obamacare.” The best way to clean up the mess in Washington would be to limit these clowns to one term in office so they wouldn't have to raise millions of dollars to run all these inane ads that really don't say anything. That, and public campaign financing so the rich guys don't automatically win.

I was visiting my parents over the weekend who live in Tifton and would like to sincerely thank the police officer or local law enforcement gentleman who at Wal-Mart paid for my father's bill as he was in line behind him. I'm a physician in Chicago and believe in the concept of "paying it forward.” I just never expected it done to me or my family members. I would like to thank this mysterious gentleman wherever he is and hope that his kindness is rewarded tenfold.

I voted. My guy lost. I spoke out about the lies and the tyranny and corruption put upon America by the winners, and nothing was done about it. I voted again. My guy won. But even then nothing was changed. He became part of the problem. Seems whoever is in office is going to become part of the status quo and very rich, Voting is a joke no matter how you wrap it and sell it. If no one voted nothing would change. If everybody voted, nothing would change. Sad.

Saw an interesting remark that I thought should be put out there for folks to think about. (paraphrasing) Isn't it funny that someone says something a bit derogatory about someone and they lose their basketball team. But the president of this country and his cronies can lie time after time to the public and nothing is done about that. We have sure hit bottom in this country.
