Rants

Only in government can you move an employee into retirement, hire a replacement and save money. Note: Public retirement plans are paid by taxpayers.

If you like what’s happening with VA health care, you’ll love the Affordable Health Care Act when it fully operates!

Benghazi! This year’s finest GOP agenda. Where were they before we lost 4,000 Americans in Iraq?

What WILL Democrats and MSNBC do if the Koch Brothers decide not to run?

Bob Corker and his wealthy donors’ stars are on the ascent. His working-stiff constituents, not so much.

Commissioner Skillern was not the loser in the May 6 election. We, the Hamilton County taxpayers, were the big losers.

What’s the reason for people parking in fire lanes and no-parking zones: stupid, lazy or unable to read? Then, too, where’s the enforcement?

When I hear of one meteorologist walking to work and disconnecting his electricity, I will believe human activity is responsible for climate change.

Unlike your figure of $100, which you obviously pulled out of thin air, $10.10 and $15 are reasonable figures that have been put on the table based on the wages necessary for one to maintain a modest, basic standard of living in today's world. If business owners would pay a decent wage to begin with, it would not be necessary for government to establish a minimum wage. Government is not being "intrusive" for doing that, it's simply doing what our representative government is meant to do - to serve the interests of the people, to act as a buffer and safeguard against monopolies and powerful interests.
