Rant & Raves for Thursday, January 31 2013

VALDOSTA — City of Valdosta: How long are you going to let the caution lights at the  Bennie's Alley crosswalk stay covered with trash bags? It's only a matter of time before someone gets hit.

I mean really, the only thing Obama has passed Bush in is creating three times more debt and an even more sluggish economy. He also done that in his first term. Let's talk about all the job creation, oh my bad there isn't any. The lesser idiot here would be the Romney voter.

How about this weather? Get out, enjoy it, share your light and remember, we all relax in different ways.

To the person who stated Obama must have gotten a C in civics: I guess Mitt Romney must've gotten an F.

To the citizens ranting about burn permits. Burn permits are issued by the Georgia Forestry Commission. While I agree, I too have questioned why permits were issued. It is based on the people obtaining the permits to use "sound judgment.” If you feel that the wind is too strong, then don't burn; weather can change in a hurry. GFC must also use their      good judgment locally, not out of an office in Macon.

Thank you to the employees at Advanced Auto on Bemiss next to Sonic. They are always helpful with installing parts for ladies that have no idea what we are looking at under the hood. I'm also very grateful that even though it was almost closing time, they helped me check a bad battery and installed it for me. I just want them to know I really appreciated knowing that my car would start the next morning for work due to their helpfulness.

PetSmart does have adoptions almost every Saturday and Sunday. If not outside, check inside. Both the animal shelter and BARC Humane Society are represented. Don't forget to spay or neuter your pets and there wouldn't be such a need for this.

Thumbs up to Kerry

Scarbrough for standing up for the little guy

who is trying to make a living.

    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!
