Rant & Rave for Friday, June 6, 2014

VALDOSTA — Are you kidding me? This has got to be a joke! Heaven and Hell have absolutely nothing to do with day and night on planet Earth. That’s called Earth’s rotation relative to the sun. You were joking right?

I am disabled and I receive the maximum food stamps allowed and it doesn’t last especially during summer when the kids are home. I would gladly submit to a drug test especially if I could receive more help feeding my kids.

With the way things are going in the city and county schools of false hoods of racism against blacks and the county schools segregating students based on race and encouraging students based on race; it is enough to pull your child out of school and teach them yourself. Where are all board members at to stand up against this nonsense? ... Equal treatment for all students, people. You are the ones that keep creating racism.

Lowndes County needs another high school. I did not see this need until I moved to a county that has three high schools. Teacher and student relations are better and parents are more active in school activities. Please, Lowndes County, make this a priority.

Still unclear about the outcome of the POW trade; however, the left side are discussing and with different opinions; however, the right as usual are on point with the talking points from Fox News. Question is, if that was your son?

Read my lips, no new taxes! Remember this quote? Remember what happened to George Bush Sr.? He lied! He raised taxes and got the boot! This is what will happen to elected wimps in Valdosta and Lowndes County if they raise taxes. Beware! Cut expenses! Raise my taxes and lose your job! It is that simple!

I do believe that you upset readers fell for a tongue-in-cheek rant about banning religious speech.

Congratulations on 3,000 and thank you for your service.
