Rant & Rave for May 23

“We like to watch the Atlanta Braves on TV. Can anybody tell us what happened to Dan Uggla? We haven’t seen him in a couple of weeks.”

“Ben Carson’s column headlined ‘Principle and pragmatism’ demonstrates one thing — he is a true leader. What we have in Washington right now is a non-existent case of leadership. That is for president, Congress or whoever — either party. They just don’t have it. At least Ben Carson has some idea of where priorities should be and what should be done before we go so far down the drain and have to get back up.”

“I’ve been going to the VA for 17 years. It’s always had problems, so don’t start blaming President Obama for it. It was going on when Clinton and Bush were president, too”

“Reference Thursday’s comics. Somehow or other, ‘The Born Loser’ and I have come up with the same attitude toward all these campaign speeches, candidates and the rest of it. I think I will just sit this one out.”

“A special ‘thank you’ for making the puzzle ‘Wonderword’ larger so my 85-year-old eyes,  with glasses, can solve it. I really do enjoy it.”

“Do people in this area realize that there are other people in this world besides Christians? What if a person is well qualified for a political position and what if he/she is Jewish, Muslim or a Buddhist? Does this mean you wouldn't vote for him? How can you say that one religion is better than the other? I don't understand any of you.”
