Rant & Raves for Thursday, January 17, 2013

VALDOSTA — Since when is the concept of banning access to certain types of weapons and magazines the same as ‘banning all guns’? That is the level of response that is unfortunately expected from uneducated tools of Faux News.

I agree, instead of going to the authorities, first check with the owners of horses, we also were reported for not feeding and watering our horses. When the authorities came to check, they found two 1,000-pound bales of hay in the fields and 140 gallons of water. For the owner of the collicking horse, try putting her in a trailer and driving for an hour or so, this helps relieve the colic. Hope she is OK.

Every student and parent who commented, posted, and passed on information about Kendrick Johnson should have to issue a public apology on their social site. Speculation and rumors about drugs, gangs and murder flying through the air and that poor mother could only remember him as her beautiful baby boy.

Well, it's official. American's paid a record price at the pump last year and started 2013 with record high gas prices. The supplies are up, with 2.5 million barrels more than thought, and demand is down. This is a result of the policies of this president running up our debt, thereby devaluing the dollar!

I wonder where all the people ranting about cyclists would have us ride, when we live in a community with so few designated bike lanes or paths. The city should implement a pedestrian and cycling plan into our road infrastructure, especially with the amount of foot and bike traffic around the university.

If you are one of the parents that lobbied so hard for your student to have a cellphone at school: don't be upset now that they used them when the student died at school! Parents are responsible for teaching kids discretion!

    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.
