Rants & Raves - February 21


Why is it necessary for the railroad to tear up multiple crossings along Highway 41 North? On Wednesday there were at least seven you could not cross. People can't get home without going miles out of the way. Hopefully knowone needed emergency assistance.
So our state representatives want to allow guns in bars? Yes, let's arm the drunks. What could possibly go wrong?
A Facebook reader, referring to the new Confederate flag tag asks why an historic symbol is associated with hate. Oh, I don't know. I wonder how modern Germans feel about swastikas. 
I say, let Georgia issue the confederate plate. It allows me to identify who the racists are who can't accept they lost a war 150 years ago. H-e-r-e's your sign!
