If you like a vent, press this to move it higher up the list.
If you don't like a vent, press this to move it down the list.
Press this to nominate a vent for "Best of the Vent."
You may vote only once per Vent. Multiple votes will not be recorded.
Yeah, because things like government-funded cellphones are way more important than air traffic control. All it takes is a disaster to realign priorities.
AJC new break: Veterans may be left uninsured, however, the government saw fit to give welfare to the Boston bombers.
I think Steve Martin and his wife can have as many kids as they want. I highly doubt his kids will be a burden on the tax payers unlike others who should really think about how many kids they bring into this world.
Why do some people keep blaming conservatives for cuts to Medicare and Social Security? Nobody asked for cuts to SS or Medicare or even Medicaid (if you know the difference). We're simply asking for responsible spending and for cutting out the crap. Your administration chooses the targets that are most painful to the public, and they do it deliberately.
I smile each time I see the sign,"Unattended children will be given espresso and a free kitten..."
To the lady that cut me off in traffic with a left turn, then gave me the finger, all the while her elderly mother (I assume) was sitting in the passenger side..classy, very classy.
Every time I go to a doctor's office 5 to 15 minutes early, they give me 45 minutes worth of paperwork. Seems they have changed their recordkeeping system and lost it, or "it has been over a year" (well duh, it's an annual appointment), or because the govt has changed the required recordkeeping format and they have to start over, or some such. It's ridiculous.
No wonder Congress now wants to unsequester FAA funds. They don't want any waiting at the airport evertime they go home, which is every other week.
Government as usual. The City of Atlanta posted that our street would be swept on Monday, so we should park off the street. We did, and nothing happened. On Thursday the cleaners showed up, only to leave behind all the trash under the parked cars
with all due respect officer-could you please keep a safety distance??? (chances are slim to none for me to drive any faster/ over the limit with a police car behind me)
What is morally wrong can never be partially right.
So suddenly the counties are realizing that the new car fee system is going to decrease funding for schools, since there is no longer a sales tax on car purchases. Where were they when this change was being proposed in the legislature?? Ditto for the charter school folks who thought the new commission would not use the powers given it??? Hello!
If you don't like Social Security, Medicare, and other government programs refuse to accept them.
Don't complain about the streetcar! That was paid for by Federal dollars. And we all know that money is free.
Anyone who believes that exempting Lawyers from the Lobbying Law regarding registration fees and reporting gifts needs to call me. I have a beautiful waterfront lot for sale in the Everglades.
How do you nicely ask someone to remove their chewing gum. I've often wanted to do that but cannot come up with best way to.
I'm amazed at how little testing my kids (in high school and now in college) get, that provides actual feedback to the student about the course of study. The teachers and professors never grade and return the tests, papers, projects, until the very end of the course! My kids have no idea how they are doing, and often their 60 may be the highest grade in the class, so the curves are unpredictable.
I will not tolerate intolerance.
Some people call 911 to report in about traffic safety issues, easily could be in 3 counties. Just a guess. I've reported deer on the interstate several times in Cherokee and Bartow, and been thanked for it.
So the suspect in the boat was unarmed. Anybody else wondering about that gunfight Friday night? Who the heck was shooting at whom?
I will be ecstatic if one of my Vents scores a -600! That's my lifetime goal.
The FAA HAS cut money from other areas. A very, very large proportion of the FAA budget is staff salaries so they have to cut there. What do you suggest, turning off the lights in the control towers?
What? Cheney wasn't at the Bush library opening? How come? Visiting Iraq maybe?
I realize this is a red state, but please print more progressive vents.
Republicans protect banks and mortgage companies. It's that simple. Who goes to jail when the present Republican Congress is in cahoots?
Why do Republicans think they aren't to blame for the flight delays and shut downs? Did they honestly think they could have their cake and eat it, too?
No, I don't like George W. Bush. And, so far there has been no mention on the Vent about the deaths of over 4,500 American soldiers in Iraq published. Too sensitive, Mr/Mrs. Vent editor?
The new Bush Presidential Library should be a big hit with preschoolers. Nothing but Thousands of coloring books and copies of 'My Pet Goat'
