The Rant

The Rant

The more Trump tweets, the more it reveals his understanding of our nation's problems and the skills he has to solve them. OK, I'm scared.

The Russians helped Trump defeat Hillary, maybe, maybe not, I don't know. I just want to find out who to tell "thank you."

A recent letter to the editor said Trump has "accomplished much of what he promised in his campaign." Madness!

I can't remember seeing a Bennett cartoon depicting Obama bowing to Arab royalty, much less apologizing to the World for U.S.A. actions.

Please, let's hope Robert Mueller can get his investigation done as fast and as competently as possible. Everyone be quiet until he speaks.

I didn't think Trump was a good Christian man. But after meeting Putin I see he is following the Biblical commandment to love your enemies.

Boring, boring, boring. Clay Bennett's cartoon theme has become very boring.

So far, I have seen nothing but nothing burgers, even if the Dems and lamestream media claim otherwise.

Ron Hart said on TV, "lil Kim Jung Un best be careful shooting off his missiles. That's a good way to lose a finger." LOL

What kind of political leader doesn't know his three closest aides (family) are meeting with someone from his country's archenemy? Answer: There isn't one.

Does anyone think a Democrat president who pulled all the stunts the Trump White House has would still be unindicted?

School board chairman calls negotiations with new superintendent "very strenuous." Seriously? Strenuous is Ooltewah, bad test scores, state takeover . Give me a break.

So righteous Hobby Lobby acquires items for its biblical collection by breaking commandments eight, nine, and 10. There's another fine example of Christian moral leadership.

Why is the media giddy about Amazon prime? Why don't they report a sale by Sears or Walmart for a Fourth of July sale?

EPB, love that you're offering customers choices regarding solar. Outstanding idea. I'm going for it!

The Beer and Wrecker Board meets publicly more often than the Hamilton County School Board.

Well, our police chief finalists are set. Want to wager on who our mayor will pick? Bet it won't be the outsider.

Eighteen-wheelers going between Knoxville and Nashville should be restricted from taking a shortcut along Riverside Drive and through Ross's Landing, our primary tourist center. Someone is going to get killed.

Need more places to shop with my dogs. Dogs are like children; they cannot be left in closed cars!

Vehicles that exit Chickamauga Dam toward the traffic circle, please slow down before the yield sign so drivers in the circle know your plan!

For a committee to truly evaluate separating Signal Mountain from county schools, it must be willing to consider that separation may not be viable. Otherwise, the group is simply pushing propaganda.

Why do cosmetic and lotion manufacturers insist on putting glitter in their products? I've been over "My Little Pony" for decades.

TDOT Help drivers are a blessing. This is our government working right.

Strangers at Panama City beach, who formed a human chain to rescue a family caught in a rip tide, give me great hope for humanity.

Let's think long and hard before we start removing statues from public spaces. Everyone take a deep breath.

Congrats to WRCB's LaTrice Curry. She is finally getting her due. She has been overlooked way too long.
