Rants

OBAMA SAYS that Bin Laden got what he deserved. Does that mean that he and the Dems support capital punishment?

SOMETHING DOESN'T feel right about letting people in office redraw their own districts. What do you think they're going to do?

YOU KNOW we're in trouble when a Supreme Court justice compares health care to broccoli.

WHY ARE WE spending money prosecuting John Edwards but not the crooks on Wall Street?

NOW COMPLETED, what was the projected and actual costs of the VW complex to federal, state and local taxpayers?

MR. MAYFIELD: Being unable to prevent criminal mischief by your son, you do not deserve being our representative in D.C. Please withdraw immediately!

THE CITY COUNCIL roof project's excessive cost is just another example of the ease at which politicians spend "other people's money."

POLICE OFFICERS are warned not to associate with known convicted felons. Maybe this just applies to the lower rank and file.

I WOULDN'T begrudge anyone a drink on a Bahamas cruise; however, you signed a statement that said you wouldn't. Not leading by example.

PRINCIPAL JOYNES being transferred due to money offers! How can you put money over improving the lives of children. See anything wrong with this?

TV METEOROLOGISTS: We can read two-digit temperatures without your help! Please use your time to explain what they mean.

President Obama's position on the Death Penalty has been clear:

"I have said repeatedly that I think that the death penalty should be applied in very narrow circumstances for the most egregious of crimes."

Which obviously you didn't hear, but if you don't think that Bin Laden qualifies under those terms, please do make that argument.

While claiming to be a God fearing nation, America, my home for 11 years, and Britain, the "great nation" which destroyed my native Scotland, repealed a God given law, "He that sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed." God has never rescided this law, but the crime families, the gangs, the drug cartels, the dealers and the careless nations allow murderers and rapists to cause the decent people to be terrorised in their communities, and attorneys to make a fortune, stretching hope for people who gave no hope to the people they took from their families.

To the Police who taint the evidence, to catch a bad guy, for anything, they too must know that the penalty for false witness in a capital crime, is the same punishment, the witnesses sought for the accused. The same goes for false witnesses, took the time to lie about someone in their anger, pain, or even in their hatred.

How wonderful the world would be in the good people of the earth stopped hiding behind the skirts of their mummies and daddies and stood up for righteousness.

The death penalty has been crushed in Connecticut, which has been my U.S. home, but it is not long since a teenager was shot and killed within a few yards of my home, and the entire neighborhood, who were out on their stoops were too scared or too deeply enmeshed with the crimes on the region, would not speak to the police, as they knew their own children were either, illegal, criminal, immoral or all three.

For wickedness to thrive, good people simply sit by and say absolutely nothing.
