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.

    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.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!
