Rant and Raves for March 2

It is surprising to me that you can have better service at a sit down restaurant when they are busy, busy than when they are slow. Really?

What has happened to children? They are so disrespectful, lazy and think that they do not have to work for anything. These children will never make it in the real world when the are adults. Sad, so sad.

••••••••••••••

Obamacare will kill home health care for seniors by taking the funding. Since he never saw a dollar he didn't want to spend, why would he do this? Is it that by having the health-care provider coming to a person's house, there's not enough of a role for the government to intervene, manage and meddle?

 ••••••••••••••

I think most people that support liberal politics do so because they are poor students of history. The nation's founders believed in a small, restrained government, and wrote a nice document restricting governmental powers and protecting us from abuses. It's called the Constitution. Y'all should read it some time.

It is true that Lincoln was a Republican and he signed the Emancipation Proclamation (which really didn't free anyone). But he was a liberal of his day. A man who wanted to change the country from slave to free. Just as the Founding Fathers were the liberals of their day. Men who wanted to create a new type of government; to change from a monarchy to a plutocracy. And surely Christ was the liberal of his day. A man who taught that salvation was achieved through your personal relationship with the one God. That killing a goat or paying the temple priest was not necessary for redemption of the soul. What a liberal idea.

••••••••••••••

I would like to correct a recent rant. Truman (D) intergraded the military, not Eisenhower (R). And the Democrats in the South that maintained Jim Crow laws were also known as "Dixiecrats." These Dixiecrats would all be Republicans today. In fact many of them did later switch to the Republican party – Strom Thurmond.

••••••••••••••

The Republicans came up with the Obamacare idea in the first place. Their last presidential candidate signed the same plan into law when he was the governor of Massachusetts. They don't have much credibility with their continual criticism of the plan. It's just politics as usual.

••••••••••••••

One reader commented that “Income equality has grown…under Obama…” If income equality means taking more of my hard-earned income and giving it to someone who refuses to work so they can live off the government handouts created by a liberal system, then I’m against it. Income equality should mean you earn your own way by working a job and taking home a paycheck. Income equality sounds socialistic to me.
