Rant & Rave for June 6, 2014

Live Oak —

It’s a pretty sad world we live in today when parents tell your child that just received an award at the SHS baseball sports banquet to take it back and give it to the coach and then get up and leave. If you didn’t earn the trophy you thought you should have, then maybe you should have worked a little harder. You should be ashamed of your behavior and the message you are sending out to your child. It was clear to see that each player who received their awards were very deserving, and now we all know why you were not awarded anything else.

I keep hearing some local businesses using radio commercials to advert themselves as being "American owned"...really? As opposed to what? Is someone who was not born in this country but in possession of legal U.S. citizenship not American, too? Or does the foreign accent and skin tone disqualify those other business owners? Meanwhile, you brag about how "American" you are while profiting from a heavy clientele made up of illegal aliens...how dare you!!!

Have you noticed all the Road work being done in District Four? It must be election year, elections should be every year.

Who is the real minority in colleges?

"As the (female) dean of admissions at Kenyon College wrote in 2006, men with good grades are "more valued applicants" (than women) because they're rarer." http://www.newsday.com/opinion/columnists/ted-r-bromund/liberals-have-plenty-of-privilege-to-check-too-ted-r-bromund-1.8283004

Finally our school district is first @ something, whupping other people's kids!! Way to go, this place is the pits. Too bad you can't earn enough $$ to leave it as a bad memory.

This is the second time someone has removed the flag that I purchased from my father's grave in the veterans' section. It was not worn out. The colors were still good and it wasn't torn. You didn't buy it, I did. Leave it alone. Also, who took all the flags that were put on the graves for Memorial Day?
