The Rant

The Rant

November 19th, 2017 in Opinion Rants

New word —"Roymoored:" The actions of a dirty old man-child predator who uses the Bible as a booster seat for his victims.

On stage in China: A statesman. A world leader. Also, a fat, orange-haired buffoon.

If it takes a village to raise a child; what does it take to raise a Congress that gets anything done?

Sen. Bob Corker stands head and shoulders above Donald Trump when it comes to common sense and knowing when to keep his mouth shut.

We elected as president a man who bragged about groping women. Why would we worry about a senator who behaved the same way?

Hey Democrats, "resist" is not an actual program for progress. Lead, follow or get out of the way.

Something to think about: Why would it be necessary to follow every statement made with the phrase "Believe me"?

Investigations here, investigations there. When the h-e-double toothpicks is Congress going to spend time doing something good for the country?

Kleptocracy: A political regime whose members make dishonest use of their official position for personal gain. President Trump inherited this swamp. Implement term limits!

The EPA theme song could be "Out in the country" by Three Dog Night. It starts, "Before the breathing air is gone "

Africa has three U.S. bases and 2,800 troops; Vietnam all over? Where is the news coverage?

There are three essentials to prepare for Thanksgiving: cranberry sauce, wine bottle opener, and to kill the turkey, a semi-automatic with bump stock.

Republicans: Despite prayers, God won't appear and solve America's gun problem. He gave us brains and expects us to use them.

Sin is the problem. Read Romans 1:18-32. Then keep reading.

I don't believe there is a single fire station or police department in the country where sexual harassment has not been an issue.

Sen. Corker needs to put a cork in his big mouth. He is a disgrace to Chattanooga and the country. Be quiet and get out.

Signal Mountain committee members researching breaking away from the school system finally held a public meeting. Couldn't or wouldn't answer half the questions.

Marathon mishap: This is testimony to the value of Tennessee's education system. Maybe they should try to teach subjects, not just answers to test questions.

So glad all these hotels are being built in Chattanooga. When the next recession hits, at least all the homeless will have places to stay.

Bicycle riders expect drivers to obey rules like the 3-foot rule but most of you run red lights, etc. What makes you so special?

When is the city going to do something with Graysville Road? It is horrible. Gets much better once you hit the Catoosa County line. Shame.

Thank you, Jay Greeson, for your insights. The Stanford band should be dissolved for disrespecting our nation and our military.

Disgusted with city and county officials who line the pockets of wealthy developers and corporations with our hard-earned tax dollars. Latest example: MLK extension.

According to Trump: The media, FBI, intelligence agencies, women who accuse him of sexual assault — all liars. Putin? Trump totally believes him.

Glad to see the remnants of a payday lending "empire" were sold at auction. I hope the properties will be put to better use.
