Rants & Raves for Friday, June 28, 2013

VALDOSTA — I hope the person or persons who stole my grandchildren’s pool on Monday have a heart and bring it back no questions asked. If you choose not to and are using it, think about a 2-year-old saying, “somebody got my pool.” They sacrificed for the kids a pool and cannot afford another one.

I wish I could understand why residents/walkers in New Wood Valley (South Sherwood Drive) refuse to return a wave from a passing car. What are you so mad about?

Don’t stop at Paula. Let’s fire all these stars or wannabes that have used a racial slur. What comes around, goes around.

Why does the City of Valdosta dictate when citizens can water their new grass but the city itself can water their new grass on Eager Road every single day for hours on end? Not to mention wasting plenty of water because they are watering an entire lane of the road as well.

No matter how pretty you are on the outside, when you live wrong, you become ugly to others that know.

For those worried about the eggs in our stores being stored above the cold line of the cooler. In Brazil, I’ve seen eggs not refrigerated at all in many markets.

Many people don’t realize that firefighters and many law-enforcement officers (detectives and the like) give up a lot of time with their families to respond to emergencies and crime scenes. For someone to recognize their sacrifice, and the sacrifice of their families, is appreciated. Holidays and family activities are often cut short to help others.

Democrats are strongly pushing immigration reform (amnesty) to gain millions more voters for the Democratic Party in order to vote Republicans out of existence. However, there will be a sacrifice. A larger Hispanic voting block will replace Black Democrats with Hispanic Democrats in every political race in the country.

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    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.
