Rant & Rave for Monday, Dec. 24, 2012

VALDOSTA — From the lady who was having a not so good day to the gentleman in the black Ford truck with a Brooks County tag, thank you for buying my lunch at St. Augustine Road Chick-fil-A today. You restored my faith in humanity and made my day a little brighter. I will pay it forward!

I want to thank my Heavenly Father for saving me. I pray that everyone will remember 2,000 years ago our Savior was born and suffered and died for us. Merry Christmas.

The “Seasons Greetings” sign isn’t meant to remove Christ from Christmas, but yet to acknowledge all beliefs. If yours is Merry Christmas, that’s cool. If Happy Kwanzaa is your choice, then that’s fine, too. Maybe you celebrate the Festival of Lights, so Happy Hanukkah to you! We should all get along, but until then, Happy Festivus!

Thank you to the Department of Transportation for finally making an opportunity for two cars to turn at the same time off Exit 18, southbound ramp.

I would like to thank Gateway Baptist Church for the wonderful Christmas Cantata performed by the children. It truly touched my heart to watch the children perform songs, while a book that was written by a local writer, Jane R. Willis, was read. I purchased one of her books for a keepsake. The children were wonderful and the true meaning of Christmas could be felt. Merry Christmas to a wonderful church.

In Publix this afternoon, I watched a woman hang out after she paid her bill and when the cashier finished ringing up the woman behind her, the first woman said, “I’ll be paying that bill today.” That random act of kindness will stay with all who witnessed this. What a beautiful woman. Made my day wonderful and no one bought my groceries.

    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!

    Chaining a dog 24/7 is nothing short of animal cruelty. It is time for our elected officials to pass a law against it.

    Just announced in Atlanta that Valdosta came in first in the state for percent decrease in population for year 2013. Albany was No. 4. Do you suppose the City School System demographics have anything to do with this. City folks may not think consolidation was so stupid when we start playing in region A.
