Rants

TWO IDIOTS, Obama and Clay Bennett, dump them both in 2012. Good riddance!

SANTORUM: KEEPS women in their place and pregnant. Closes public schools. Thinks earth is there for the taking. Wants the rich richer. My kinda guy!

FOR THE LIFE of me, I will never understand why men are involved in women's reproductive issues.

MOST OF OUR county and state officials are not replying to emails about our petition to stop vehicle emissions testing in Hamilton County. Wonder why?

IRAN'S MISSILES are set on Saudi Arabia's oil fields. If Israel strikes, then how much will gas be?

WHY CAN'T Skillern take his money, buy his own county and leave Hamilton County for the sane people to govern?

DRIVERS, IT'S the law. Use your blinkers when turning or changing lanes, turn lights on when raining and stop for a funeral procession.

IF TRACK 29 can get acts like Jack White (already sold out) and Five Finger Death Punch, why can't Riverbend? Some modern rock, please.

ATTENTION THIEVES who stole our antique planters, dirt, plants and all: Shame on you. We hope that twinge you feel is guilt -- or a hernia!

SO GLAD THE union sign is finally taken away from the Hampton Inn and hope the paid sitters are back at real work.

TO THE INCREDIBLY kind woman who paid for my mocha at Starbucks, my heart thanks you! You made my day!

Actually, it is not a law to stop for a funeral procession. It is strictly a respect thing and is customary here in the south. In fact, I believe it is actually against the law, but don't hold me to that. Seems like I read that somewhere that is is, but not enforced, as is so many other traffic/street laws. But if you are going to stop, pull off to the side of the road and do it. Don't just lock up in the middle of the highway or you just might get rear-ended.

Yeah SICK, you might just get rear ended by someone texting or gorging themselves on another illegal addiction called a cell phone. And FOR THE LIFE OF ME...men are involved in women's reproduction itself. That may the unobvious(for you)reason they are involved in the overall issue.

Actually, Livn4life, what I referring to comes from my experience. A few omnths ago on APD40 in Cleveland, several cars, myself included, were heading east when the lead car suddenly locked it down after topping the hill because a funeral procession was coming the other way. They stopped so hard and short that all the rest of us had to lock it up and one car even when into a skid and ended up facing the worng direction. Before anyone starts on this, none of us were speeding, texting or on a phone. The first car should have slowed and pulled to the side instead of locking it up in the middle of the road. I travel a lot for my job and see things like that all the time.

So the head of the law review at Harvard, pres Obama is an idiot. I bet the writer of this is a lower middle class high school grad with no more than perhaps some time spent at a junior college. Will these morons ever wake up and realize that our problems started because of and under the administration of G W Bush.

"Our problems started because of and under the administration of G W Bush."

The Libtard Anthem....Did you place your hand over your heart as you typed that? You are the moran.

The question is this: Will you morans every wake up and realize that our problems have been growing for many, many years and grew worse during the administrations of both Democrats AND Republicans? They have ALL had PLENTY of opportunities to "fix" economic and social issues but have failed miserably. But, the same is true the world over with everyone wanting everything handed to them without working for it, thus we have economic disaster learing it's head on both sides of the ocean.

JonRoss, if you'd listened to Obama's speech at AIPAC you'd know he supports Israel. But, of course, it's much easier to base your opinions on random guesses.

RUKE said...

Sure he supports Israel NOW, an election is coming, he wants those votes.

You can positively say none of the other drivers were on the phone? sounds like BS to me. It also sounds like none of you were following the 1 car length for every 10 mph rule. Stop tailgating and it won't matter what the car in front of you does.

BTW it is illegal to obstruct the flow of traffic in the state of Tennessee, even for funeral processions.

@shoe_chucker.... Yes I can say that none of us were on the phone. I keep very aware of my surroundings and drivers around me. we were all less than 2 miles from a red light which we were all sitting. And we were following the standard car lengths. The offending car was travelling at about 58mph, as were the rest of us, when they locked up. Yes, locked up enough that they even left skid marks. If it is illegal to obstruct the flow of traffic, I wish the police would enforce it. Especially things like today, when I was traveling north on I-75 with several cars in the left lane in front of me, when suddenly the lead car saw a Bradley County police officer sitting in the median presumably shooting radar and slammed on their brakes bringing traffic from 70 mph to 55 in a matter of seconds almost right in front of the cop car, and refused to move over afterwards. Yet the police officer sat there and did nothing. If I was a cop, I would see that as suspicious behavior as well as reckless driving. And I see that all the time, everytime police are stting anywhere in view of the interstate. Long story short, people are idiots on the road and traffic laws are not being enforced like they should be.

President Obama certainly has issues in office. He has not been strong enough on different issues where Liberals wanted him to press harder on. Re: single payer on the health care debate for instance. However, it is correct to say that the majority of the problems of this recession started under W. That is simply fact. Also, the economy has made gains under Obama. Just not enough as many of us liberals would argue. But, Sage1, please, please use a dictionary! its spelled M-O-R-O-N!

SickofBS, if there's anything that makes me sad, it's the average person driving.

Drivers should not stop for a funeral procession but should yield to their right of way. It is illegal to merge into or cut between the vehicles in a funeral procession. To show courtesy, you can slow down while the procession is going by.

Joseph. Feel free to critique my spelling all you want, but why don’t you go to this website http://www.miseryindex.us/urbymonth.asp and learn something while you’re at it? The strength of the economy nor the level of unemployment is in no way related to which president or which party is in power. Neither does economic recovery.

Notice that the unemployment rate has only been above 8% for 3 periods of time since January of 1948 according to the US Dept. of Labor (where this website amassed its information)

January ’75 until January ’76 1 YEAR) The first time was in January of 1975 (Rose to 8.1%) Until January of 1976 (dropped to 7.9%) with a peak of 9% in May of 1975. This was when Ford followed Nixson into the White House. I’m sure this is the republicans fault, but it was SHORT LIVED..Right? (Republican following a Republican). (Unemployment above 8% for 12 MONTHS)

November ’81 until February ’84 27 MONTHS) The next time unemployment rose above 8% was in November of 1981 (rose to 8.3%) until February of 1984 (dropped to 7.8%) with a peak of 10.4% in October of 1982. This occurred after Reagan followed Carter into office, but by your logic we can’t blame this on Reagan since he inherited it from the Democrat….Right? (Republican following a Democrat), (Unemployment above 8% for 27 MONTHS)

February /09 until ??????? 36 MONTHS (and counting) ) The next time unemployment rose above 8% was February of 2009 (rose to 8.2%) and was at 8.3% at the end of February 2012. The peak rate so far was October of 2009 (rose to 10.1%) This was with Obama following W. Bush into the White house. (Democrat following a Republican) (Unemployment above 8% for 36 MONTHS and counting)

The unemployment rate had been below 8% for about 28 years until the 1 month after Obama’s inauguration with 8 years of Democrats ruling and 20 years of Republicans ruling.

If Carter wasn’t to blame for unemployment rates during Reagan’s Administration, then Bush can’t be blamed for Obama’s rates. The two longest and highest periods were under Reagan and Obama.
