The Rant

The federal government gave Indiana a $100,000 grant for a farm-to-school food program. Fort Wayne spends $200,000 just to study projects that will end up nowhere. Fort Wayne is making President Obama look like a Republican.

Ever wonder why unions got a start? Look at how companies are manipulating money, employee hours, ship work out of the country, reduce employee wages and eliminate benefits! Job security creates dependable, loyal workers! There are exceptions, but there are in management, too.

DST (daylight saving time) does not kill anything. I don't know why you don't care for it, and I'm sorry it's not something you like, but there are some of us who like it just fine.

What makes you think Marlin Stutzman isn't voting for what's best for Indiana? When constituents don't all want the same thing, somebody isn't going to be happy. … By the way, voting to make the welfare bill separate from the farm bill is not a bad thing. All bills should be voted for one subject at a time, without a bunch of other stuff added to it.

Conservatives know that America's evolving racial demographics will make it hard for them to win elections. That's why they are trying to rig elections and subvert the will of the people via gerrymandered districts and voter suppression.

Why isn't Fort Wayne bidding on building the new Boeing 777 here in Fort Wayne? We have a perfectly good 11,000-foot runway and acres and acres of land around Fort Wayne International Airport. We also have a very skilled workforce. Sounds like a no-brainer to me.

Mr. Obama and his flock of sheep will soon be put out to pasture.

Take the politics and money out of college football.

As a society, we are in denial about affirmative racism, which used to be called “reverse discrimination.”
