The Rant

Due to fraud, a temporary (driver's) license is now handed to you on a sheet of laser jet paper. Imagine the surprised look from businesses that use licenses for identification, bars, stores, hotels, car rental. Imagine the suspicion of the Georgia state trooper who stops you. Who made this brilliant decision?

Why aren't more churches taking an aggressive stand against all the sin, sex, violence and other issues facing our nation that violate biblical teachings? Beware, America! He is watching!

How can anybody pull up to gas pump and stay a liberal?

Why do the rich take and hoard so much when others have so little? Why would any decent and moral human being want any part of this obscenity?

Why apply dust control when the county highway department tears it up and grinds it down to the mud after people have been applying it and it is as good as pavement? Think of the money people spent.

(Indiana) Rep. Cindy Ziemke, R-Batesville, said some girls think more about picking out their prom dress than having an abortion. Really? That well may be the case in her house, but my daughter doesn't think like that and neither do her friends. That is an insult to Indiana women across the state.

Do I support universal background checks for gun purchases? Absolutely not! If the liberals want this, then I want everyone who votes in local, state and national elections to pass this same background check.

It's easy for people who don't live in the 'hood to tell everyone to help the police. You don't live there, so you don't know what fear of retaliation is. If you live there and talk to the police, you or your kids might be the next target. Walk a mile in their shoes before you speak.

Just followed a Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control van down Highway 3 and then Dupont Road. She was texting the whole way, impeding traffic and not doing a very good job of staying in her lane. Why are the laws not enforced for city employees?
