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.

    Here’s an idea. Learn basic math before posting numbers about crime rates. The US has 1 violent crime for every 26 citizens not 1 per 262. Geesh.

    To the ranter about the A/C in the jails, you are 100 percent right. The male and females should be treated equal. Neither side should have any A/C. If I am struggling to put gas in the car to get to work to put food on my family’s table and not running our A/C to keep down our living cost then why should those parasites get their three squares a day, cable TV and A/C? Put them in tents and pink outfits and feed them PB&J that comes out of their own funds. Yes, just like Sheriff Joe out in Arizona.

    It seems people in this town, and especially those in my church are not happy unless they are complaining about something. Today’s earth-shaking rant is that the choir members are too noisy when they change into their robes before the Mass. Give it a rest or you won’t have a choir.

    Funny, the people criticizing immigrants coming here looking for a better life for their family, are only here because their ancestors immigrated here for a better life for their family.

    Of the proposed 75 million that is needed to teach the students of Lowndes County for one school year, 55 million of that goes towards salaries. I don't want to hear no complaints about teachers salaries or furloughs again.

    Is it another sign of the times that people are too lazy to send thank you notes? I’ve bought four wedding gifts and two baby shower gifts since April 1. To date, I've received just one thank you note. It’s just good manners!

    It cracks me up when people say they don't want to be in a business or location where people are carrying weapons. My husband is a police officer and when he's off duty, he always carries concealed. I have a strong feeling that you might be happy one day that one of the hundreds of off duty officers are "packing" if you ever have a need for them!

    People rant on here, but don't bother to attend the County Commission's meeting about the tax increase. I bet you don't vote either. If not, you forfeit your chance to gripe. Just hush!

    Some hillbillies have more money than you do, they just don't flaunt it. Most are hard working, good people, unlike the wealthier, selfish, spoiled, inconsiderate brats. You can lose all your money and education in a blink of an eye. Be thankful God has allowed you to be or have what you do and treat others as you want them to treat you.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!
