The Rant

Saturday, April 6, 2013 - 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.

Is there anything more depressing than a young Republican?

According to Ric Runestad's March 27 editorial: Karl Rove, John Boehner and Eric Cantor are now “liberals.” Wow! You would think the Indiana GOP leadership would have learned something after the Mourdock disaster, but apparently not.

Same-sex marriage: God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve!

It is so sad when babies get shot for the mistakes their parent makes. Change your lifestyle.

Say your prayers for the victims and families who are going through hell.

Can't believe Detroit and other cities have to close all those schools. Big mistake for the children, families and teachers. Remember the song “Eve of Destruction”?

Volunteers are out cleaning our town. Get the people in jail out there to help them.

To Angola: No stripper club. Angola is a family town. When summer gets here, the families pile into the car and go to the lake, and Angola is a family fun spot. Take your so-called gentleman's club somewhere else. Joe Biden sure likes to spend our money, too.

President Obama is going to use the United Nations to trump our American rights.

Companies are flush with cash. Workers have not had raises in years and are so afraid of losing their jobs they won't ask for one. Remember the saying, “There is power in numbers”? That's why the unions made a strong middle class. Gun control. Abortion. Gay rights. Gag, as in throwing up. This is how the left and Democrats keep you feeling sick.

As Bloomberg's puppet says, “With gun ownership comes responsibilities.” Ya mean like having your finger on the trigger all the time?

Two years ago I told all my Democratic friends that President Obama would go after the guns if re-elected and they (didn't believe) me.

If I am a felon or criminal, am I going to fill out a background check? Nope!

We need to go back to paper ballots for elections. Even though it may take an extra day or two to count the votes, it is too easy with today's technology to rig voting computers.

If you want other cars to let you into stopped traffic when pulling out of a parking lot, use your turn signal, so we know what your intentions are. Often I would gladly let someone in ahead of me, but I don't know if they want to be let in, since they don't signal.

IPFW reported by News-Sentinel to be $8 million in debt after “years of not having a budget that was set in stone — and continually using cash on hand.” … Chancellor Carwein, you are the one facing reality and get to clean up this mess. Best of luck!

Why does the guest column writer think that only conservatives love liberty and freedom? Seems like he has his wires crossed. His type keeps adding laws taking away our freedoms and restricting our way of life. I can make my own choices. I don't need him telling me how to live.

Congress is giving themselves a raise. I'll bet it will be more than 1.7 percent. Any takers?

Why does the post office advertise on TV? We know what they offer.

If the post office hadn't invested $30 million in Lance Armstrong, maybe the bottom line would be in the black instead of the red!

Where, oh, where has common sense gone?

No one can balance a checkbook anymore. Ask Washington, D.C.
