Rant & Rave for Monday, Feb. 3, 2014

-- — Global warming? Feels like global cooling to me!

It's obvious where the origins of some rants, calling President Obama "His Royal Highness" started. It is definitely a FOX News catch phrase. At least be original!

Leaders in Atlanta thought they made the right call to allow businesses and schools to open and to send them home when the weather began to deteriorate. You see how that turned out. Erring on the side of caution knowing that the weather was going to be bitterly cold here and wet, I am happy that businesses and schools closed to be safe. Had they not, and the situation became dangerous because of the weather, you would have complained that the city and county did a poor job! Just be thankful we were all safe and in our homes!

Rave to 106.3 out of Boston, Ga. They play some awesome classic country music. On clear days I listen to them in my car, and at home on the laptop. Thank you for playing the classics like Haggard, Jennings, Cash, Anderson, Cline, Parton, Lynn, among many other legends.

Does anyone know if any of the schools or anybody else is selling those discount cards you buy? Mine ran out Dec. 31. I would like to get another one if  anyone knows who is selling them.

I was recently driving behind a police officer who was talking on his cell phone, threw a cigarette butt out the window and didn’t use any turn signals. What a great example he was.

    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!
