Vote for flags on Facebook
I just heard on Fox News to get on the Facebook to vote, as to whether we should have our American flags made in America.
Yes, we need to have our flags made right here. So, come on, people, vote for it. Get on Facebook. Fox needs your input on this.
So, let's get with it - American flags made in the U.S.A.
It's disgusting, it's disgusting and it's disgusting
What most people don't know is that there is only one homeless shelter in this 70-mile-long county.
It is located in Titusville.
I know people, who will say I'm disgusting, but we need to have a state sales tax in this state of Florida, so we could have more homeless shelters, more social needs could be met and disability benefits could be provided if you get hurt or injured.
In other states that have state taxes, citizens are much better taken care of and the quality of life is better.
It's disgusting that we only have one homeless shelter in a county that is 70 miles long.
Social Security retirement system
In reply to "Checks and cars," this person should realize the Social Security Act of 1935 is a tax on the American workers, disguised as old age insurance.
It was FDR's (plan) to load the coffers with more money to feed the poor, and tell the people that they were going to get it back when they were 65.
Now, you have to be almost 68, but, you can still get it back.
It is not something that we think we deserve. We definitely get it, because it is a retirement program.
And that is why the government is using my money since I was 18 years old, and I want it back. OK?
Also, drive whatever cars we want to. I happen to have a Ford, as well as a Toyota. And I don't see that it is hurting the American economy to drive a Toyota.
But, as far as the Social Security Act goes, this guy is way off base.
Ranter obviously uneducated
I just read the article in Rants & Raves about "Checks and cars."
It says, "Why do retired people think they deserve a Social Security check?"
Well, you are obviously uneducated.
The Social Security check that retired people receive is their own money.
They put the money into the system when they were working.
You also say they deprive young Americans from jobs. They buy Japanese, German and Korean cars. Why don't they buy American cars?
It is because American cars are not built as well as a foreign car, and the warranties are far more superior.
I think you need to know what you are talking about before you write into Rants & Raves and say that retired people don't deserve a Social Security check.
Trains, cats and rats
I am very proud that you folks printed the (rant) on misbehaving children. That's a fact.
On the subject of trains: Right, it's upside down, just like the rest of the government.
The cats in the park: Like the lady said, a lot of the colonies have been fixed and have had shots, and they have taken care of a lot of personal ones.
What are they going to do if they annihilate all these cats? Who's going to eat all the rats coming off these five cruise ships? Come on, people; get a brain.
It's obvious that they don't care if we get invaded by a lot of rats, as long as they get money in their pockets.
Thank you for the opportunity.
Thank you, Palm Bay
My deepest thanks for our wonderful Palm Bay Police Department for apprehending the juveniles who assaulted me.
We have a great police force.
Annoyed with Rants
I really love the paper. I enjoy getting it, but the one thing I really am annoyed with is the Rants & Raves, not so much.
There are people, who say things and get them off their chests, and it's great.
But, why do you constantly put two or three letters just taking our president apart?
It is so sad that we have to put up with something like that?
I know there a lot of people who don't like him, but why two or three letters? Isn't there anybody sending in a good letter that really says good things about him?
I feel he is a good president, and he is our president.
Being today is Veterans Day. I think they should all be good Americans and stop sending those hate letters.
Thank you very much.
Editor's note: We don't pick and choose our letters, and we welcome all topics in this section. Thank you for your rant.
