The Rant

Wednesday, September 4, 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.

The economy stinks! Prices are out of control! The world is on fire! And this bozo in the White House gets back from another vacation in time to honor the '72 Dolphins for being undefeated?

Thank goodness the courts ruled against a student's right to wear an “I Love Boobies” bracelet at North Side High School. … Please stop wasting our courts' time with such nonsense.

If a man in military court documents is sentenced to 35 years in prison, can the man demand the sentence be rescinded and sue for false imprisonment when he becomes a woman?

President Obama says the history of racial injustice will not be forgotten. If that is always dwelled upon, then even if racism by whites disappears, racism by blacks will always be there. We all need to strive to move on, not feel like we will always hold a grudge despite our progress over 50 years.

Where is the “hoopla” from all the black preachers over the senseless killing of the white baseball player by the … (minority) teenagers just because they were bored? We sure heard plenty about Trayvon!

Our largest shopping mall may not have the best stores in the country, but they definitely have the loudest “Muzak” in the entire universe!

Much was made in the media about George Zimmerman being a white Hispanic. Why isn't President Obama referred to as a white black? Mixed parentage is mixed parentage.

Not only should students be expected to behave while at school, but teachers should be expected to exhibit control in their classrooms.

Imagine a society where everyone is responsible for their actions and inactions, as opposed to blaming and expecting handouts?

Regarding … complaints about water-saving devices, … as a teenager, I had to get clean by bathing in a wash tub after a day in the hay field, so I find a flow-constricting shower head ain't so bad, and our new commodes installed last year use 1 gallon a flush and will whisk away every last trace in 2 seconds.

The open hostility conservatives display toward diversity and equality undermines the credibility of our country.
