The Rant

Be very careful when buying from … (a local thrift store chain)! Since you cannot return or refund any purchase but you find out it is broken (even if it was in an unopened package), you just lost a good deal!

To all of you ranters who say the voucher systen is fair. I say fooey. I never sent my kids to public school. I paid for them to go to private schools. Why can't you? I did not need or take my neighbors' tax money to educate my kids. I worked extra shifts and saved my money.

Marriage is and always has been between a man and a woman. Don't like that? Then get your own name for your own sex choice and the union you want. Marriage is already taken.

Allen County Highway Department finally put fine stone on Hoffman Road between Lortie Road and Morgan Road and filled the the wash out big enough to cause damage to cars, and then they graded a lot of it off into a farm field.

The ranter who wants vouchers to send his kid to a Christian school has it backward. I paid for all of my kids to go to Catholic schools. I did not get vouchers. That was a choice I made. And I also paid taxes into the public schools. You don't sound like much of a Christian yourself, taking money from others who really need it.

Imagine if the (American) Automobile Association (AAA) had the same clout as the NRA. No more hassles with the BMV (Bureau of Motor Vehicles) because there would be no vehicle registration, no plates, no driver's licenses, any one of any age or ability could drive, no stop lights, stop signs or speed limits to hamper your freedom. Would there be more highway deaths? Of course, but that's the price of liberty.

Maybe I would take congressional Republicans' laser-like focus on Benghazi more seriously if they had displayed similar concern for the … (approximately 60 attacks on) U.S. embassies and consulates during the eight years of George W. Bush's presidency.

Wake up, America! We finally got the truth about Benghazi from the people who were there! Impeach President Obama and prosecute him as well as Hillary (Rodham Clinton)!
