The Vent for Thursday

The Confederate flag is part of southern history. If you study the history of the Civil War you will find so many factors were in play that caused the war. For some reason, slavery seems to be the only one people seem to want to mention.

Once again our do-nothing Legislature is wasting their time on gun rights and anti-gay/anti-immigrant legislation while completely ignoring critical issues such as transportation, health care, poverty, unemployment and education. I say KICK THE BUMS OUT!

What’s up with this rash of abuse toward 3-year-olds? C’mon folks, pick on someone your own size. (Oh, that’s right, you’re afraid we’ll fight back.)

360 Guns in bars? What could possibly go wrong?

The public did not ride when the Loop Bus was a quarter, going to Auburn Ave. from the Aqarium. They won’t ride the rail at several dollars. Six blocks?

You cannot compare the number of troops used in WWII with the number of troops needed today. The type of war and the technology are entirely different.

Some folks don’t have enough to do if they are censuring who moves into the neighborhood and who doesn’t put their tools away properly. Get a life.

Georgia’s Right-to-Refuse-Service Law is as wrong as Jim Crow. It’s government authorized bigotry.

I don’t involve myself with the North versus the South. I am from a State in the West that did not exist until well after the War Between the States was over.

So as a gay man it is O.K. for me to carry a gun to church but they can deny me the right to buy a doughnut in their coffee shop.

Would someone please remind me what weapons Jesus carried?

So if Arizona finalizes this silly new law, I hope there are lots of Buddhist, Muslim and Jewish business owners who feel uncomfortable serving right wing conservatives.

Atlanta is no longer the city too busy to hate if you include Buckhead.

Gwinnett Co. is making a huge mistake with tacking 30 minutes on to the school day. It disrupts athletic events and afterschool activities and screws up bus schedules. Guess nobody thought of that.
