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. Somebody throw (Gov. MIke) Pence a life jacket because he is drowning as a puppet for (Donald) Trump. Now the whole nation knows that Pence is a buffoon.

I hope the store in the mall that refused to sell coffee until 10 a.m. goes out of business! I'll never buy a thing there again!

Do you think those of Hispanic heritage are sick and tired of being falsely identified as the next terrorist suspect? Every time? We are!

Regardless of the media polls, there are more than two candidates for (U.S.) president. Come on, people, do some research! After all, this election is about your future!

I am sick of nothing but elections and football on TV. At least the elections will be over in November. For football, we have to wait until spring.

I don't know what debate the Fox (News) pundits watched, but they used terms to describe (Donald) Trump's (presidential debate) performance ... like, "Trump crushed it," "Trump hit a home run," and "hands down Trump won." Really? 

Perhaps it might be prudent to re-evaluate the proposed economic development plan for the southeast side of our city. If the current rate of killings in that area continues, after a few years there won't be enough people left there to support new businesses.

(Donald) Trump says if we adopt orphans from Syria they are not welcome here because they are Muslim. How can this man be so cruel to children?

Until protesters start protesting the killing of young black men by other young black men, they have no credibility with me. 

To families of deceased victims of a violent crime, Victims Assistance offers assistance so families can receive $5000 to assist with funeral expenses. Most funeral homes work with families in these situations and would work with that amount of money. The only catch is this, if you receive any kind of a financial settlement, it will need to be paid back. Wow! Victims have very few rights in Indiana.

Are you kidding me! (Fox News will pay Gretchen Carlson) $20 million for workplace harassment. Someone harass me, please.

The dictionary definition of a hypocrite is as follows: A hypocrite preaches one thing, and does another. ... The word hypocrite is rooted in the Greek word hypokrites, which means “stage actor, pretender, dissembler.” So think of a hypocrite as a person who pretends to be a certain way, but really acts and believes the total opposite. Ted Cruz. Need I say more?

A black man shot a black man at a Charlotte rally that was protesting a black man shot by a black cop. What happened to Black Lives Matter?

I can't figure out how my fellow Republicans caught a case of the stupids. (Donald) Trump is not worthy to be the face of our party. We are being hijacked by people who don't understand what it means to be a Republican. I can't vote for (Hillary) Clinton, but I sure won't vote for Trump. He will take our party down the drain for the next 20 years.

Todd Young can't even raise money on his own. He had to call in (Republican U.S. House Speaker) Paul Ryan. ... How does that help Hoosiers ... (if) all of his votes in Congress are already decided by Ryan?

What kind of a sick person with $8 billion dollars would steal thousands of dollars from a charity? Oh, yeah, a conservative Republican. They have been doing it to the working class and poor for years. 

Johnny Appleseed (Festival) parking at Concordia (Lutheran) High School was advertised on TV, radio, the internet and newspapers. The one bus always went to the football field across from Concordia —never came to the high school. I went home the second year in a row. All other parking lots were full. And another thing, the Coliseum Parking lot charged the vendors of the festival $5 to park. This is totally wrong. They should not have to pay. The Johnny Appleseed (event) is the largest free festival in Indiana. It seems somebody wants the festival to end. 

Who is taking care of our roads? Has anyone seen the terrible paint job on Carroll Road? Lines look crappy and peeling. Yellow haze all over the brand new asphalt. Wavy lines. Looks like a bunch of drunk guys painted it. Tax money hard at work. 

In the Trump-Clinton (presidential) debate, Hillary's face never changed. It was like a permanent painted-on smile. It was like the sinister, never-changing smile of Jack Nicholson as The Joker in the original "Batman" movie.

Congratulations to Fort Wayne! Did you know that we are now known as "Little Chicago"? Isn't it great? Thousands of dollars are wasted on police officers and detectives to bring criminals to trial. The prosecutor's office drops charges on these criminals and slaps them with probation. Not only does someone need slapped, but we need a new prosecutor who will do the job! This is ridiculous.

At the debate Hillary (Clinton) had her answers down so pat, it's like she already knew the questions!

Could we just not have Hillary and Bill (Clinton) back in the White House? This country has been through so much in the last eight years. We need to start fresh with some new people, ones not associated with Washington at all. The country doesn't want to deal with the Clinton scandals, dirty baggage and lies any longer. Let them just go away and let us be! We're tired.

This presidential election, I can't make up my mind who to vote against. It would have been nice if one of the political parties had given us someone to vote for.

The zika virus is for real? Not to a lot of football coaches that have car tires and tractor tires laying on their practice fields collecting water. They care about your baby. ADs and football coaches make too much money.

I put $10 on 300-1 odds that (Donald) Trump would mention Rosie during the debates. Thanks, Donald. That was a quick $3,000.

(Donald) Trump says he gets audited every year, he's not in prison so I guess he hasn't done anything illegal.

The principal at my kids' school is a (Donald) Trump supporter. I told my kid that they can bully anyone at school that they want to. If I get called into the principal's office for a meeting, it's not going to be pretty.

Facts are used to correct the debaters. But the supposed facts of the fact checkers are subject to error and make them open to a separate debate. Who checks the fact checkers' facts? The public doesn't trust the media 's analysis, and how many facts can a fact checker check if a fact checker could check facts?

I will not lower my flag to honor (late former Israeli Prime Minister and President) Shimon Perez, the butcher of the Palestinian people. (Gov. Mike) Pence must not know anything about history. I will only lower my flag for Americans. Pence is so out of touch with America ... .

Oil companies lower production to create inventory shortages. If workers lowered their production, the government and the news media would be all over them! Two different worlds. We do need change!

Everything out of (Donald) Trump's mouth is a lie. I have never in my 80 years seen such an ignorant group of voters who support him. He is a disaster waiting to happen for America. The country that I fought and froze my butt off for is ready to turn the White House over to a man who is totally unprepared to be president of the United States. Stop and think. Please.

If you would get out in the intersection like normal drivers do, I wouldn't have to bump your car. If you're scared to drive, then take a bus or Uber.

I've seen high school debaters do a better job than (Donald) Trump did by 100 percent. If he thinks he is a master negotiator, then he is fooling himself. He couldn't talk his way out of a traffic ticket. And what does his 10-year-old son have to do in an answer about cyber security. Trump is dumber than his supporters, and that's not saying much.
