Rants

THE IDEOLOGICAL, no-compromise gridlock in Washington is destroying our country. Only solution is to vote out all incumbents, starting this fall.

CONGRESSIONAL members recently expressed concern that Wal-mart managers possibly bribed foreign officials. Happens here every day -- it's called lobbying.

IT IS TIME for the voters to exercise their executive voting privilege and overturn Obama and his Obama health care!

NOTE TO REPUBLICANS: You lost the war over health care. It is the law of the land. Stop crying and stop acting like sore losers.

REFUSE TO BUY health insurance? Fine. Then pay up front when you see the doctor or go to hospital. I'm tired of paying your bills.

BODY PARTS should be valued in Kelly Blue Book (according to age and condition etc.) to limit medical malpractice suits.

CHATTANOOGANS ARE drunk on religion, and like all drunks, they insist everyone drink along with them.

WITH THE POVERTY, crime and ignorance in our area, maybe the commission should try praying to a different god.

DON'T ELECT A judge based on who has the biggest or most blue signs at every intersection.

DON'T TRADE with big-box stores that have kicked out made-in-America products and are killing our well-known name brands!

IF IT BOTHERS you to hear someone pray, stick your fingers in your ears and shut your mouth!

Someone has campaign envy for blue signs. What's wrong is your candidate losing?

A different God? But their God has made THEM rich. That means THEY must be doing right, while others are doing WRONG.

". . . fingers in your ears and shut your mouth!"? Stay classy there Bible Thumper. That's a really compelling argument you're putting forth.

I hope you realize, ranter, that most of those who willfully "refuse" to buy insurance consist of the 19 - 25 yr. old demographic of single yound adults who think (naively) that since they are young and healthy, they don't need it. Of the 50 million or more who are uninsured, the overwhelming majority of them desperately want it but they either cannot afford it, or they have pre-existing conditions that prohibit them from getting it. So you might do better to direct your rant to the insurance companies to make their insurance more affordable and to start insuring everybody across the board. Oh wait...The AHCA addresses those problems, but that's just that socialist Obama and the pesky government trying to dictate our lives, huh? I guess it's a whole lot easier for ranters like you to lump all the uninsured into the category of lazy leeches. That way you can feel righteous in your indignation as you bitch and moan about them "refusing" to pay.

When it's elected GOVERNMENT officials praying openly on GOVERNMENT grounds as they are conducting GOVERNMENT business, then we are going to see to it that they learn basic respect for others' rights, shut THEIR mouths, and keep their prayers to themselves, thank you. Now, stop being such an arrogant ninny and go sit in the in the corner until you learn how to play nice with everybody.
