Rants

SO THE REPUBS need two senators to offer the rebuttal to President Obama’s State of the Union speech. That shows how strong he is.

WE COULD BE so lucky to have Corker as president. He’s smart, bold, bipartisan and will make tough, necessary decisions and lead. We need him.

I AM DISCRIMINATED against. I work, pay taxes and my health care. Obama does not include me in his giveaways: Yet, I will fund them all.

HOMOSEXUALITY IS found in over 1,500 species of animals. Homophobia is found in only one. Which one seems unnatural now?

WHO CARES IF the leader of the world’s largest false church steps down. It’s not newsworthy.

IF THE POST office needs more revenue, why not charge extra for Saturday mail delivery like every other carrier does? Duh?

ONLY A 2 PERCENT approval rating for Congress, but yet 90 percent of them were re-elected. I’m sensing a slight disconnect here.

OUR DRONE program is troubling. If you can’t bomb or send troops, killing with drones should also be a violation of the rule of law.

TO THOSE AGAINST drones: Three buildings and 2,996 people not enough? How many planes-into-buildings before you would send in the drones?

I COULDN’T BELIEVE my ears when I heard the sheriff say it’s his job to protect gun rights. Buddy, your job is to protect me.

EAST RIDGE City Manager Tim Gobble is gone, and three councilmen need to go also.

How many species practice cannibalism?

Corker made two-way, a decision not nessary that wasted a couple million tax dollars, that he refused the people's advice on.

"More guns less crime" (Book title). Guns can protect; Marietta is safer than Chattanooga.

AndrewLohr,

"How many species practice cannibalism?"

Not many species are primarily cannibalistic. The vast majority of species will only eat their own kind if they are starving. I'd also like to point out that cannibalism and homosexuality are not equivalent. Try again.

"More guns less crime" (Book title). Guns can protect; Marietta is safer than Chattanooga.

More guns doesn't equal less crime. Guns can kill. Japan is safer than the U.S.

Between Afghanistan and Iraq we have killed hundreds of thousands of people, and 99.99% of them had absolutely nothing to do with the 2,996 people killed on 9/11, nor did they pose a threat to America in any way. Is that not enough for you?

Corker is bipartisan? A leader? Really? On what important bills has he ever split with the GOP and voted with the Democrats? He may be smart, and I hope he'll grow into being a statesman, but we've seen no evidence so far that he's free of extremist shackles, or that he's a leader. All we've seen him do is talk and walk the GOP's party line, like voting to delay confirmation of the Secretary of Defense. That was a shameful vote that comforts and encourages enemies of the U.S.

I disagree. The Pope has the distinction of wearing the silliest looking hat and the most ostentatious robes in the whole world. How can it not be newsworthy when a man who pretends to be so serious yet dresses like a clown decides to hang up his hat for good? May his clownship...I mean his holiness... have a happy and fulfilling retirement and may the next clown...I mean Pope...wear the silly hat and funky robes with all the silliness...I mean dignity...that comes with them.

Not only that, Easy. There's documented proof that early settlers to the new world practiced cannibalism. There was even a colonial childrens' rhyme alluding to the fact.

Not only that, rickaroo. America's strategy has only served to produce and create more terrorists. Remember too, over 95% or more of those arrested, interrogated and tortured accused of terrorism had no connections to terrorists, terrorism or any terrorists organizations. At least not before they were interrogated and tortured. No one knows for sure how many turned to terrorism afterwards. America's living out the story of Saul so anythings possible.

This rant was about cannibalism? Did I miss something? Why don't you guys ever stick to the subject?

Obama is not "strong." He won by a 4 million votes. Whooptidoo.

It is the job of conservatives to stop Obama in everything he says he wants to do. I am glad he gave us a list in the "State of Disunion" speech. It will make it a lot easier.

timboner,

Stronger than anyone the Republicans could conjure up. A win is a win. Romney lost by 4 million votes!

"It is the job of conservatives to stop Obama in everything he says he wants to do."

They'll never win another election if they do.

"I am glad he gave us a list in the "State of Disunion" speech. It will make it a lot easier."

It'll make it easier for Republicans to cherry-pick the issues they want to use to pander to Hispanics and other minority groups. Republicans have no choice. If they obstruct, they can kiss their Presidential hopes goodbye for a long time.
