Rant & Rave for March 13

— “I don’t know who wrote that about Randy Young, but it seems to me that the people who were voted in can’t do the job. I bet Randy could.”

“I don’t know about the rest of y’all in Thomasville, but that measly Social Security raise didn’t do me any good. They raised my rent, raised the utilities and took away part of my food stamps. I am a senior citizen and I worked all my life for my Social Security.”

“Caller, how can you be so dumb? Republicans are closing businesses because they don’t make enough to provide health care for their employees according to Obama’s health care plan. This is what happens when socialism tries to take over.”

“Walter Williams hit the nail on the head! To paraphrase: ‘People do not spend billions in national elections to elect politicians who will uphold the Constitution; they're looking for favors.’ Still, there are those of us who fervently seek candidates who will uphold the Constitution.”

“I have to disagree with the commissioner that feels the cemeteries in Thomasville are not being maintained well. I think they look well maintained overall and when people pass by on Jackson Street, one of our main streets, the grounds look well kept, which gives a good impression of our town to visitors. As far as Peaceful Rest, I recently attended a graveside service there and thought it looked fine. I saw no trash laying around, the grass was not growing out of control and the shrubs there where not overgrown. So what's the problem?”

“All the city asked for was two inmate crews. And you tried to make it a racial issue. Shame on you!”
