Rant & Rave for Friday, Oct. 5, 2012

-- — My two friends and I went to eat at Fuji, the Chinese place in the mall. We were sitting behind this couple who were very talkative and nice. We all chatted while we ate, well as we got up to go pay, the man took our ticket and paid our meal for us. I would just like to say thank you to that very nice man. Its good to know that there’s still kindness in the world.

Congratulations to the Georgia Bridgemen for their outstanding performance at the Oconee Classic last weekend where they were named Grand Champions! So proud of all the hard work that they have put into the show and proud that the theme is an awesome tribute to our wonderful country’s heritage! Go Bridgemen!

Teachers have to fork out a lot from their own pockets. Tee shirts are pushed to be sold to students and teachers. Fund raising is pushed, also. Don’t deny that.

Fund-raisers are not FUN-draiser’s.

To take away our last chance to go to the Winnersville game in our high school career is outrageous but most of all heartbreaking. Many of us have been for waiting this day since we entered the doors of Valdosta High School and have been motivated to continue a streak that may began against our rivals as of last season.

Please help change the minds of the four Lowndes County Middle Schools to allow the Cook Middle 8th graders play in the conference softball tournament! Please reschedule the tournament so they can go on their school Washington D.C. trip. Don’t squash the dreams of these eight  girls!

School T-shirts are a good way to show pride in your child’s school. Also, some of the profit goes towards fun activities for the students such as honor roll parties, dances, field day, etc. However, no one is forcing you to buy anything. It is your choice.

    I want to thank Brittney who has been my family’s favorite waitress at Cheddar’s since they opened their doors. Saturday night was no exception. She never lost her composure while I witnessed some crude treatment from the customers seated near us. Keep your head up.

    VDT, please refrain from posting gun control comments. My son and I were at breakfast and he mentioned the low price of assault rifles at a gun show. I said that I was opposed to these. Two fellows overheard this and on their way out, the larger one said that I sounded like some the "communists" writing against America in the newspaper. He said that if were up to him I would be “lined up.” He got into a dilapidated Dodge pickup with anti-Obama, pro NRA, and a Baptist Church bumper sticker.

    It wasn’t  Remerton where  the rats were escaping to Azalea Drive, it was  from the raw sewage. At least  they are smarter than people.

    Thomas Jefferson said that we don't keep and bear fire arms for any other reason than to protect ourselves from tyrannical government action. That is why the liberals are trying to suppress Christians’ freedom of speech and why the government is trying to label gun ownership as a bad idea.

    The Swiss issue all adult men a firearm. Owning a gun does not condone, or create, violence. Lay blame on the person not the tool. If you really believe that banning firearms will end the violence you are sadly misled. All that will happen is law abiding people will not have guns and the criminal (who doesn't obey the law anyway) will.

    I don't know of any gun owners who fantasize about being "the good guy with a gun." Just when you think you have heard the most ignorant statement possible, along comes one that tops them all.

    Monday, I observed a woman at Walmart getting into her car, with two boys around the age of 8, one of which seated a young infant on his own lap in the rear seat, not using his seat belt. As the lady began backing out, I jumped out of my car and asked her to put that baby in a car seat. Stupid! Please, parents, don’t have a kid, if you don’t care to put them in a seat belt, or wear yours.

    To all Facebookers: You look like idiots when you post these “dares” of jumping in cold water or pictures without makeup. What do you think you are accomplishing? Absolutely nothing ... Send money to support the organizations and then you will be making a difference.

    I smell something even worse than the Withlacoochee River. A big tax increase to help pay for all the lawsuits. Someone needs to pay for this and it isn't the citizens of Lowndes County.

    The rodeo was a great event for the area, but hopefully next year there will be more seating. Many people paid ahead of time and didn’t get to see anything.
