The rant

The rant

January 1st, 2017 in Opinion Rants

Donald Trump, please save me from Obamacare, the IRS and Comcast!

A naive comment at home means you need some education. A naive comment as president-elect may mean a path to war.

Why do Trump and his people continue to bash Hillary? You won. You are in almost total control. Do something positive.

Trump's fear of acknowledging the origin of the DNC and other hacks makes me wonder: How many electoral votes does Russia have, exactly?

Typical Obama arrogance. There is more hope in the country now than anytime in the past 10 years.

Now that he can't help her become president, will Hillary finally kick Bill to the curb?

P.O. Box robberies: Can't the USPS afford security alarms and cameras to help stop these crooks?

Hey Chattanooga, East Ridge keeps its end of McBrien Road up. Your end, however, is almost down to the dirt. Time to do something about it.

To the letter writer who wants a currency chart in the Business section: there's an app for that!

Quit talking about Trump voicing the will of the people. The 54 percent of Americans who voted against him are the majority.

The city wants folks to go downtown, yet there is usually no place to park. Tourists have to pay through the nose.

Democrats uphold Obama's lack of support of Israel. Now I know why the VA is in such poor shape: eight years of neglect.

Sowell's commentary claims diversity is a fraud! The Jobs section says diversity experience is necessary. We improve our country with more jobs, not more lies.

After 911, the financial collapse and the Iraq invasion under Bush, only the willfully ignorant would call Obama an abject failure.

Funny, the people criticizing president-elect (before he's in office) find no criticism of the outgoing president (after eight years in office).

More and more we will see that our new president has absolutely no clue what he's doing.

The election was seven weeks ago. The Free Press must think it's clever to keep running political cartoons about Hillary. It's not.

To entertainers who refuse to perform at Trump's inauguration: Will you still sell tickets and albums to Trump voters? Or does avarice trump your principles?

C'mon folks. The new year is "twenty seventeen" not "two thousand and seventeen." Extra words are unnecessary.

What a slap in the face to women: to have our country elect the womanizer who has no political experience over the woman having the best qualifications of any candidate ever. Misogyny has new life breathed into it in 2016.

To a recent writer: Bush II took 879 days of vacation, Ronald Reagan 335, Clinton 174, Obama 217. Any further questions?

Methinks the Chattanooga mayor is using my money to buy some goodwill before his re-.election bid in March.

You have to wonder if Dave Crockett's mother never told him a gentleman takes his hat off inside.

School district central office higher-ups send their kids to private school. How's that for confidence in the system?

Here we go again. Democrats hand over a strong and growing economy to the Republicans so they can screw it up for the next Democrat to fix.

Did I miss a key cabinet pick? What position did Putin get?

To whomever paid for my breakfast at Lillie Mae's in Red Bank, I thank you. God bless you.
