Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2012

--- — Thank you to all the Sallas Mahone faculty and staff who went on the “Bus Tour.” My son was so excited to receive the books! It is so nice for these individuals to take the time away from their own families and have a vested interest in my child’s education. Thank you, Sallas Mahone!

Congrats to the Cook Middle School softball team for finishing second in the conference tournament even without their undefeated eighth graders, and for beating one of the teams that wouldn’t agree to moving the tournament on their way to doing so.

Maybe you should be nicer to your smart meter instead of mean. My smart meter has given me two good stock picks, a winning pick 3 lottery number, and predicted the first presidential debate. It’s all in your attitude.

Can people not see the bias against Ann Romney on “The View.” They drilled her like she was running for the office. But, of course, the Obamas got the soft touch. And look at the “binder” issue. They don’t have a record to run on so they resort to these ridiculous ideas. This administration has run the most negative and hateful campaign. But it’s Chicago-style politics, down and dirty.

The Bridgemen go overboard because they can’t help it. Four-hundred kids make a lot of noise. Lots more noise than the normal 100-piece band. And the coach does what he needs to get his boys fired up. And when the band gets told to stop playing, that’s exactly what happens. It’s been this way for years and now suddenly it’s a problem. Get over it. Never heard people complain about such petty things.

To the ranter that said there are more important things in life than luck or skill at a football game! Get a life! That is so true and it sounds like you need one, too.

    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!

    It’s a shame to work for someone who gripes all the time. Never a “How are you” or “Thanks for your hard work!”

    I think that all facilities owned by the city and county should have signs banning firearms in the buildings. I don’t feel safe if a firearm is there when I am there.

    There are some wealthy physicians, business owners in this town who target only certain demographics for their business, and reject competition and growth. With the new statistics of a shrinking Valdosta, I hope you and your selfishness are quite happy when your comfort zone disappears!
