Rant & Rave for Friday, March 15, 2013

-- — Finally we know the long list of terrible sewage problems ignored by some Valdosta city officials for many years. Shame on those in the City Council who “applauded” ignorance and cynicism. Do not blame “an act of God” for your own outrageous incompetence resulting in poisoning of people and God’s natural creation.

I wonder how long it will be before people start blaming God for all the rain. Yes, the flooding caused a mess, but if people would work together instead of blaming everything the city does or does not do, it is not going to fix the problems. Maybe it’s time to have a community meeting. What has happened, has happened. Put your heads and hearts together to find a solution.

Rave to the people who are raising their voices against the sewage spill. We need to keep up the pressure so the city acts responsibility and this does not happen again!

To the ranter discussing guns on campus. The best way to keep gun violence off campus is to keep gun-toting, uneducated rednecks like yourself off them. I’d rather be a smart, educated liberal than a dumb redneck any day. Liberalism is based on ideas of openness and tolerance and conservatism on ideas of fear of change.

Well instead of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on the useless park next to the employment office, you should have put that money to some actual good use. Unless you are using that fountain for quality water supply?

Raves for the Holiday Inn on West Hill Avenue! Our retired teachers group meets there every second Monday, and the staff treats us so well.

Some of us want and deserve to know why our elected officials in this state are so quick to vote to blanket everywhere with concealed weapons. Respectfully asked, if this will solve the gun violence problems, isn’t it incumbent upon us to inquire “how” and be given straight talk back?

    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!

    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.
