Rant & Rave for Friday, Feb. 15, 2013

The Valdosta Daily Times

-- — I want to rave about Pye Painting! They come into my home and done a wonderful job! Very trustworthy and friendly. I couldn’t have asked for a better job!

This forced trash pick up is a joke and someone will pay for this when the next election comes around. I think our message should be one and done.

You call me ignorant? You blindly follow a leader who, according to the congressional testimony of Leon Panetta last week, was told about Benghazi and never during the attack asked for a follow-up. Who insists the shooting at Fort Hood was workplace violence. Who just sent fighter jets and tanks to the Muslim Brotherhood. Really, I’m ignorant?

Bless your heart. I wish you’d post a list of these companies making “huge profits” so we’d know where to apply. The reality is that most companies are struggling to stay open. Not all business owners are evil and/or rich.

The poverty level of a single parent with two children is $17,568 ($8.84/hour). Obama’s pushing for $9/hour minimum wage, eliminating welfare for that level, unless he raises the poverty level to $19,232. If not, the parent will work less so they don’t lose welfare. Obamacare, and a higher minimum wage, both equal fewer hours worked, lower wage, more welfare.

If you want to see how well the trash collection is working, take a drive down Madison Highway. The beautiful trash containers are all turned over with trash spilling out. When I called for trash to be picked up in the ditches back during the summer, they just came and mowed over it. We’ll continue to do our part in keeping our county clean if you’ll do your part and at least open the dump sites on Saturdays!

Stupid to put 34,000 returning troops on unemployment. Idle, many become frustrated, become addicts, do crime to supplement unemployment, maybe a mass murder, commit suicide. Sell some old inland bases and build many smaller ones along the rugged southern border. The soldiers get authentic battlefield training against murderous drug cartels. We get fewer illegals.

Interesting article that was ignored Monday due to the pope: Since the Affordable Care Act — Obamacare — has taken effect, the deficit hasn’t increased at all, which is exactly what both Republicans and Democrats want.
