Racism, Trump and soccer: Rant

Racism, Trump and soccer: Rant

July 2, 2015

A country that descends morally and culturally will not be able to defend itself against foreign adversaries. As our culture has degenerated, our ability to defend ourselves has been weakened.

  • Confederate flag, guns and Bernie Sanders: Rant

    June 25, 2015

    Paula Deen was branded a racist for using the N-word several years ago, but President Obama can use it, and it's called a "bold statement on race" by liberals. Really?

  • Jeb Bush, Obamacare and campus guns: Rant

    June 18, 2015

    What if Barack Obama had been president on Dec. 7, 1941? He would have finished his round of golf, issued executive orders, placed sanctions on Japan, formed a coalition and used diplomacy, drawing a red line if sanctions didn't work.

  • Fake terrorists, Jeb Bush and Obamacare: Rant

    June 4, 2015

    The release of the report on the failures of TSA to stop fake terrorists was like an open invitation to real terrorists in how to avoid detection — complete with diagrams.

  • Cuba, Confederate flag and Marco Rubio: Rant

    May 28, 2015

    Millions of dollars for sports, money-pit trains and exaggerated business deals, but nothing for teachers, firefighters, police officers, roads, clean water, wildlife or veterans. Who's leading us where?

  • Rick Scott, Hillary Clinton and deflategate: Rant

    May 21, 2015

    Gov. Rick Scott purging the water management districts of everyone who believed in science and the environment is like a church removing anyone from leadership who believed in God and the Bible.

  • NFL, physical education, and Pam Geller: 30-word Rant

    May 14, 2015

    The NFL allowing each team to have their own footballs for games was an open invitation for them to doctor the balls to their own liking — and every team did to some degree.

  • Florida House, slimy lake and Obama's library: Rant

    May 7, 2015

    To the Republicans in Tallahassee and Washington: Keep stomping on and taking away women's rights, and come 2016, you're going to be the big losers.

  • Looters, tax breaks and Gov. Scott: Rant

    April 30, 2015

    Caller ID has become worthless. It no longer displays the name of the entity calling me. We pay for Caller ID, and I think the phone company should have to provide us with identification as to who is calling us.

  • Rubio, Clinton and cheating teachers: Rant

    April 16, 2015

    Republicans would have more credibility if they stopped denying climate change, supporting Christian law for our nation and siding with the wealthiest among us on every economic issue.

  • Religious freedom, Bergdahl and Kochs: Rant

    April 9, 2015

    We are fighting in the Middle East to free people from a government with laws based on the religious beliefs of others. However, our liberties are being eroded by zealots who try to undermine our constitutional rights with their beliefs.

  • Orlando Sentinel 30-Word Rant for April 2, 2015

    April 2, 2015

  • NRA, Fair Districts and transgenders: Rant

    March 25, 2015

    The National Rifle Association showed that it has the power to pass any bill in the Florida Legislature with its support for the insane bill to allow students to carry guns on campus.

  • Rubio, Obama and I-4: Rant

    March 18, 2015

    I can't believe Marco Rubio thinks he could be president when he can't even show up to do a job as a senator. We need to vote him out in 2016.

  • Hillary's emails, Jeb Bush and pipeline: 30-word rant

    March 14, 2015

    Poor, little frail Hillary Clinton. She and her myriad serfs shouldn't be expected to carry two phones. Therefore the American voters surely wouldn't want to burden her with the presidency.

  • Netanyahu, marijuana and terrorists: Rant

    March 7, 2015

    It is absurd for any one person to decide who anybody else may marry. Zealots, mind your own business and your own life.

  • Giuliani, Jeb and Obama: 30-Word Rant

    February 28, 2015

    I find it ironic that someone can criticize the president, our foreign policy and just about everything else about America and, with a straight face, consider himself a real patriot.

    February 21, 2015

    If holy books had a disclaimer that they should not be taken literally, it would prevent so many problems.

  • 30-Word rant: 2/14

    February 14, 2015

    The wealthy got tax breaks, and the economy collapsed, the income gap widened and our infrastructure was neglected for lack of money. Shouldn't the wealthy pay more taxes and the middle class less?

    February 7, 2015

    The groundhog popped his head up here in Orlando, and now we are getting six years of commuters' hell on Interstate 4.

  • 1/31/15: Medicaid, gas prices and global warming

    January 31, 2015

    Democrats act like spoiled, entitled children, forcing Republicans to act like their parents, the original "party of no."

  • Women's rights, taxes and SunRail: Rant 30-Word Rant:

    January 24, 2015

    Republicans are again on the wrong side of history on climate change, like they are on women's rights, minimum wage and Wall Street regulation.

  • 30-Word Rant: 1/10/15

    January 10, 2015

    The killings in Paris are not acts of terror, just religion rearing its ugly side.

    January 3, 2015

    From the Affordable Care Act, 10 million more Americans will be healthier and more economically secure in spite of John Boehner, Mitch McConnnell and the GOP-controlled state governments. If not for them, millions more would benefit.

  • 30-Word Rant: 12/20

    December 19, 2014

    The policy change between the U.S. and Cuba came about because Congress was left out of the discussions; now if we could keep it out of the budget discussions ...

  • 30-Word Rant: 12/13

    December 13, 2014

    GOP tacking expanded political donation limits on the budget bill is no surprise, with deep pockets stamping at the gate. Also, it's another personal hit on Obama.

  • 30-Word Rant: 12/6

    December 6, 2014

    I am a 61-year-old now-former Republican with pre-existing health conditions. Through the Affordable Care Act, I've just obtained great health insurance. Thank you, President Obama.

  • Rants: Ferguson looting, immigration and Crist

    November 28, 2014

    To the person who ranted that Gov. Rick Scott did not get 51 percent of the vote, remember Bill Clinton served two terms as president and never received 50 percent of the vote.

  • 30-Word Rant: 11/22

    November 22, 2014

    Did I hear President Obama say, "That's how our democracy works"? it's difficult to believe that anyone, including Democrats, would put someone in the White House who does not know that the United States is a representative republic.

  • 11/15: 30-word rant

    November 15, 2014

    The U.S. Congress is dysfunctional; yet constituents keep sending lawmakers back. Ergo the voters are also dysfunctional. The result is the perpetuation of a government that works against the voters' own best interests.

  • 30-word rant: 11/8

    November 7, 2014

    There is a real disconnect with voters when they supported Amendment 1 with 75 percent of the vote and vote to elect an anti-environment governor.

  • 30-word Rant: 11/1

    November 1, 2014

    Why don't I hear Republicans and Fox News talking heads blaming President Obama for the extreme reduction in the price of gasoline? Oil companies aren't going to make huge profits.

    October 25, 2014

  • 30-word rant: 10/18

    October 18, 2014

  • 30-word rant: 10/11

    October 11, 2014

    If President Obama wanted to demonstrate America is not perfect, it seems the scandals of his administration would be a better example than the Ferguson story.
