Sound Off - Friday, April 5

Here’s the irony: The really fun part about you hogging the left lane “just because you can” is that after the new law is passed, you can be ticketed for that. Ironic, ain’t it?

..........

Defining landslide: No. Reagan won by a landslide. Obama won by 50.6 percent of the popular vote. Someone needs to look up the word “landslide,” because Obama wouldn’t know one if it hit him upside the head.

..........

No right passing: Basically, yes. If you have people passing you on the right, you are breaking the law. If it’s worth it to you to prove a point, fine, but either get over or get a ticket.

..........

The sometimes Golden Rule: Check it out: since there isn’t a national disaster or emergency on the horizon, notice how mean, nasty, and unconcerned people act. But just wait for the next wild fire, hurricane, earthquake and mass shooting. Then everybody needs to pray and exercise the Golden Rule. Wonder why that is.

..........

Trying to turn here: The reason I ain’t moving over is because I have to turn left and no one will let me over even with my blinker on so I can get into the turning lane. So there!

..........

Free handouts don’t work: The president won the election by promising free hand outs and misleading the American voters. If voters would have done a little reading they would not have voted for him. Unless, they are the ones getting the free hand-outs.

..........

Loving the sinner: Regarding hate. It’s called hating the sin, not the sinner. No different than loving the family member that’s an alcoholic or drug addict but hating their life style. If you haven’t accepted Jesus as lord and savior, you’re not God’s child, you’re only his creation.

..........

Ticket everybody: For those of you that never took driver’s education, read GA Law 40-6-40(b) and 40-6-42(1). They clearly state the driver of a vehicle being overtaken by another should drive in the far right lane and the driver of the vehicle passing should pass on the left. Although 40-6-181 states it is also illegal to exceed the maximum speed limit, sounds like both drivers need a ticket.

..........

Wafers or breadsticks? I was okay with the Pope giving up his red Prada slippers, but replacing communion wafers with unlimited bread sticks is going too far.

..........

Driver manners: Left lane drivers possibly also might logically feel that once the light turns green, they don’t have to move until they’re ready. Anyone else could just go around. Besides it’s not against the law. Bad manners maybe. A lot of things are legal, but are stupid. Avoid them.

..........

Drive the posted limit: If everybody would just drive the posted speed limit, there would be no need to pass or have a passing lane. No more rage, hand gestures, accidents or tailgating. Gas mileage would go up dramatically. People would get to places on time for once. (Hint: the state legislature should pass a law.)

..........

Print’s too big: What’s with the extreme oversizing of the print in the obituary listings? This is way too large and unpleasant to look at — not to mention a waste of space. Please change to a smaller font.

..........

Quit finger pointing: Seen on the tailgate of a pick-up, “Not gay. Not even happy!” Alternate life-stylers are not the only sinners around. Stop trying to judge everybody unless you are going to open your closet of sin too. Didn’t think so. “All have sinned and come short of God’s kingdom.” Repent.

..........

Bad vacation choice: When you can spend taxpayers’ money for vacations, why would you go to a Democrat-infested rat hole like Chicago?

..........

Too much religion: Too much Bible thumping in Sound Off for my taste.
