Rant & Raves for Thursday, December 27, 2012

-- — The reasons some businesses say Happy Holidays is because some of their customers are likely Jewish. They also have a holiday in December.

Yes, by all means have armed guards/police in every school. While we are at it, let's have them in every church, mall, park, amusement park, playground, swimming pool, movie theater, everywhere. Where does it end?

I've been enjoying the Snoopy house since I was a child and now, our own children look forward to it. It brings back amazing memories. Thank you for all the amazing lights, Valdosta. God bless.

To the liquor store owner who thinks his time is so important that he has to rush people so he can get a hair cut. I have been in your store before. Maybe if you did not sleep in your office the whole time you could get some work done. My business and I will not be doing anymore shopping with you guys.

So you want to complain about a letter with no letterhead? Would you rather have the county spend thousands of tax dollars on "official" letterhead so that you would be impressed?

Finally! Thanks to all the wonderful praises printed in the Rant and Rave section I read in the Dec. 25th edition. So good to finally read some positive posts! Merry Christmas to all!

Thank you to the family who delivered hot, fresh muffins to South Georgia Medical Center Emergency Room on Christmas morning. They were delicious!

I would like to thank the VDT for having such a great Rant and Rave on Tuesday. Except for the "chancel choir" member complaining about the congregation not smiling, all the other submissions printed were uplifting,with people giving thanks and were heart warming.

I kept reading about a Christmas light show and Madison that was posted in Rant and Rave. What a show!

    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.
