The Rant

The Rant

August 6th, 2017 in Opinion Rants

The only thing missing in that very good editorial on Trump being presidential is that all of his supporters must hold their breath until he takes that advice.

Democrats: Quit gloating with sarcasm whenever Trump gets caught lying. It's sad. Republicans: Quit serving your party. Start serving the country. That's tragic.

I don't fear North Korea and its missile threat. President Trump will tweet those missiles right out of the sky. Yeah, right.

Who should I blame for the $9,000 increase in my stocks since Trump was elected? I'm waiting for them to surpass my losses during the Obama administration.

Following TVA's coal ash spill, 17 workers are dead and dozens more are dying. Is this TVA's way of avoiding paying retirement benefits?

Mr. President, pretty bad when our nation's police chiefs and the Boy Scouts of America have to apologize for you.

If Barry Goldwater, "Mr. Conservative," were to rise from the dead he wouldn't recognize today's Republican Party. He wouldn't be warmly welcomed into it either.

Vietnam we quit, packed our gear and came home. Middle East since 1991, operation Desert Shield, 26 years ago, time to do the same.

Required reading at Bryan College: "the Gospel According to Livesay," New Revised Standard.

Our citizen (LOL) legislators in D.C.: Make them subject to same laws as all citizens, set term limits, monitor how they get rich in Congress.

Writer disparages the ACLU, a nonprofit staffed by non-government lawyers which receives no government funding. Facts get in the way of another "good" story.

The cancer of gerrymandering is killing representative democracy in this country. The polarization that occurs due to this is doing serious damage to our society.

Is John McCain covered under Obamacare or is it just for we peons with high premiums and deductibles we can't afford?

How to pay for health care is not the solution to this country's problem. It's the high cost of care for both government and citizen.

Hilarious and preposterous: Trump saying the Democrats are obstructionists. I remember eight years 2009-2017 of Republican obstructionism.

I hope all of you educators who voted for Trump are proud of yourselves when he cuts funding for education.

Add Sens. Collins, Murkowski and McCain to the list of Profiles in Courage.

Quoting Jon Meacham: "The Republican Party sold its soul to Donald Trump and the check bounced."

So, Mayor Berke, trees damaged after stippling to save them? Seventy-eight new trees may be enjoyed in 100 years after growth. Give me a break!

Eric Watson: He is just one of many reasons cops or so-called police, deputies, etc., can't be trusted.

I'm convinced that computer games were started by a software developer while she/he was on hold on the phone. And I thank them.

So sue me. I think we need to go back to the good old days where lawyers could not advertise on television.

Why walk after midnight? Really.

I am amazed at how beautifully constructed I-40 is through Memphis now. Brown tones of concrete with landscaping. Why can't T-DOT do the same here?

Thank you, Clay Bennett, for putting your self-portrait in the July 30 Perspective front page cartoon.

My TV mute button is worn out due to the avalanche of advertisements. Next step "off" button, permanently.
