There is an insurance commercial where a woman brags about researching torque ratios before buying a car. There are lbs/ft of torque and gear ratios, but there is nothing called torque ratios!

Over budget on military spending is only part of the problem. Whole contracts worth billions are funded by congress that the military leadership doesn’t want. Money is spent because of whose district the hardware is manufactured in.

I think the crazy comments about Obama telling you to send your child to public schools are some how turned around from he wanted public schools to offer free pre school.

Doctors do all the extra tests so they won’t be sued, and that is the only reason. I love my vet because she knows I can’t afford the extra tests so she goes by instinct. Only once in ten years has she recommended a $90 test and I’m glad cause it gave ME piece of mind. For over twenty-five years she has been right every single time. Wish I could find a doctor to treat me as good as Dr. Lisa treats my critters!

I saw the Braves are now selling season tickets for the new stadium. I was going to buy one, but I can’t work the extra 185 hours/week it would take to purchase one.

If you are going to post Sports related Vents, please change the Drop Down Box on the left hand side of the Vent page to “Sports”. Then your Sports Vent will be seen by people who care about Sports.

Better yet, since you are upset about the ink on a real newspaper, call the AJC customer service phone #, tell them and they will deliver you another paper.

I keep telling the people who are upset that the Braves are moving to Marietta, if they can find enough money to bribe the Braves to stay, then go for it. I’ll even throw in $20, because that will be cheaper for me in the long run. I never wanted them in my county to begin with.

Please, please come get them.

One way to cut military spending. Whomever “wins” the contract for whatever? You either produce the product @ or under budget Or the contract goes to next acceptable bidder.
To keep throwing $ @ programs that are grossly over budget. Just a license to steal

I can assure you that in a general context I do know the differences between Republican, Democrat, Liberal and Conservative. You did say “All of the folks who post political remarks”.
Making blanket statements can get you in trouble.

I’m sorry Tracy Morgan about your injuries but WalMart is right. If you get in a vehicle and don’t snap a seatbelt YOU are partly responsible for your injuries. No matter who runs into what.

The USA spends many billions of dollars on our DEFENSE because if we didn’t, the rest of the things we worry about…..food, health care, poverty etc……won’t matter.

I love reading the AJC sports everyday. But, I would appreciate it if the printers of the sports(last) page showing
the teams and scores etc. would make sure the info is not smeared like it was today, Wednesday.

All of the folks on the vent who post political based remarks probably don’t know the difference between a Republican, Democrat, Liberal, Conservative, etc. They do vote, however, their vote is based on Sex and Race, the only thing they understand. Voting is your right but you also have the right to jump out of an airplane with no parachute. Try it, it’s your right!

People have gotten up in arms about death panels. All that really was to keep unnecessary test and treatments from being done and paying Doctors to talk about you about what you do and don’t want done in your final days. All of this could keep the cost and fraud down.

How dare the DOJ force the Cincinnati Police Department to stop pistol- whipping its citizens. How are they supposed to do their job with their hands tied????

I think the presidents have sent their kids to the school they do is because of security concerns. It is probably the secret service concerns. The school they go to is where all the foreign diplomats send their children too. PS Jimmy Carter sent Amy to a public school in DC

Vents like yours added with ObamaCare aren’t going to help you in your old age. Because no one will want to have that profession anymore. We have to save Healthcare and it starts with having smart kids wanting to pursue a career in the Medical Field. And they will want to make good money also.
