Rants & Raves for Friday, January 18, 2013

VALDOSTA — Thanks to all the churches who provide food to those in need. This is a blessing to people who are on a fixed income. If you are among those who truly need food they are there to help you. If you are not, then please let those who need it be blessed by these kind  people.

I have just witnessed the President’s news conference regarding new gun reform. He should be ashamed of himself, using children as part of his propaganda to bolster his nonsense agenda. More concern needs to be placed on the economy and other things that can be fixed.

The current recycling centers accept glass. Advanced Disposal does not. How is this "greener and cleaner," as they advertise?

While I agree with legislation requiring background checks for all gun purchases, and see no reason for a 30-plus round clip, there is a due process and I strongly disagree with Obama's dictator use and abuse of executive powers.

I would like to rave about Christine and Leslie at the Farm Bureau office in Valdosta who are always so helpful and so nice when you walk in the door.

A big rave for Lonnie of Mediacom. Not only was he overly polite, but came in, got the job done and went out of his way to ensure customer satisfaction. Something great is coming your way. Thank you, Lonnie!

Save your tears for the "homeless" lady. She is not and so are most others standing by the road begging. They make more than you in a day.

It should be illegal for anyone to have an electric wheelchair or scooter on the road. I guess they are not in fear of their life or getting injured more than they are now.

Rave to the Times for reporting the lady that shot the intruder to protect herself and her kids. Maybe more will do the same and stop this madness. Protect yourselves and your home.

    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!

    It’s a shame to work for someone who gripes all the time. Never a “How are you” or “Thanks for your hard work!”
