Rants & Raves: Sept. 10, 2017

Got something on your mind? Tell us about it in 40 words or less.

  • Food Truck fest – Not enough food trucks, lines were horribly long and not clearly marked. Not everything was under $5.
  • If only “new” residents could bring along an acre foot of water it would be great!
  • Need for a “primary” council election: NO! It eliminated only one candidate, prolongs the outcome, and the cost at $80,000 could provide at least a six-month salary for a police officer or firefighter.
  • Grow up! I am all for keeping the monuments. It wasn’t the soldiers in the Civil War who were slave owners.
  • Why the need to discuss flying the POW/MIA flag during the month of September? The question is, “Why isn’t the POW/MIA flag flown all the time?” Soon they will be voting whether to fly the American Flag on Thursdays.
  • The Left blames global warming for Harvey. This is wrong. How can warming cause a hurricane to stall? The earth has been warming and cooling since its creation. We cannot control planet warming or freezing.
  • The millions of Americans who are fearful of President Trump, are the Left afraid of too much sugar in their soda, second-hand smoke, and lifeless statues of an era gone by.
  • Complaint about the letter carrier – FYI, the Postal Service has not relied on “tax dollars” since the 1970s. They are self-sufficient, revenue generated by postage.
