The Rant

Saturday, October 20, 2012 - 12:01 am

The Rant is The News-Sentinel's anonymous sound-off forum. The readers' views expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of The News-Sentinel.

Two Indiana Supreme Court judges are up for re-election: Justice Robert D. Rucker and Justice Steven H. David. … I don't know anything about these judges, but will be researching them. If you live in Indiana, you should too, because activist judges who legislate from the bench have ruined many lives.

There will always be a sector of the population who thinks President Obama cannot do anything right. The smirk on Mr. Romney's face during the whole presidential debate was deplorable … . I think President Obama was calm, cool and collected.

We went to see the movie “Obama 2016” and suddenly Obama's plans (or lack thereof) all make sense now. Just look at his mentors who have shaped his thinking.

I support traffic cameras. Some drivers in this city do not think that red lights apply to them! Example: On Oct. 11, the female driver of the red Jeep going west on Trier Road who just blew through the red light, while kids were walking to school!

Attention Fort Wayne pedestrians: We have crosswalks, complete with signals, for a reason! I can't count how many people decide to mosey on across the road, regardless of traffic.

If Mitt Romney wins the presidency, America will have a president who protested in favor of the Vietnam War. A truly perverse scenario.

The affluence level of one's parents has a lot to do with how successful a person becomes.

Many of the problems associated with illicit drugs stem from the fact that they are manufactured, bought, and sold in an unregulated black market.

I am tired of society, some TV shows and movies, some radio hosts, some politicians and some musicians and rappers telling me, my children and grandchildren that immoral conduct is OK.

Hey, Tea Party. What are you afraid of? If your ideas are so great, start your own third party. You are not Republicans. Quit riding our coattails and poisoning our ideas and beliefs. If you can't stand alone, then go stand in the corner. Either put up or shut up.

Oct. 9 at 3:30 p.m. at Auburn Road and access road of I-469: A jerk driving a reddish SUV passes another car on the right to gain one position in line going north and then went through the light at Dupont Road when he should have stopped.

President Obama's bragging about the unemployment coming down, but it is going to rise again due to all the defense plants laying off employees. The president is cutting the defense budget, so this puts all those people out of jobs.

After watching VP (Joe) Biden interrupt congressman (Paul) Ryan … (many) times during the debate, it convinced me it is time to replace our dysfunctional man-child government leaders.

President Obama bails out G.M and G.M. employees keep their jobs. After their bailout, G.M. shuts down Fort Wayne Foundry and sends those … jobs to Mexico. I will not vote for Obama this time!

If you ever have a problem with my opinions, don't send emails to my priest. Have guts to go face to face with me.

If you are a liberal, practicing Catholic, you need to examine your soul and see if you can really support a pro-choice, late-term abortion supporter as is President Obama.

I am a Catholic … but I do not want radical Muslims ruling the Holy Land. America must help defend Israel.

What do you call a very old acquaintance that starts talking about the wonderful things he's done. Then, when you talk, he interrupts you constantly and, when he is not interrupting, he makes funny faces? Mr. Vice President.
