Rant & Raves for Thursday, November 29, 2012

VALDOSTA — Winnersville — Let’s show how much we appreciate the Blazers consistently bringing national recognition to our community. Fill the stadium on Saturday at 12 p.m. for the quarterfinal game of the NCAA national championship. Go Blazers!

Actually as anyone who has taken a defensive driving class can tell you, if you cannot leave the intersection safely before the light changes you should not enter it.

I make 60,000 a year, pay for my own health insurance, work for a business that has been in an upswing over the past four years, and voted for Obama. When will people realize that there are views that may differ from their own. Just because you don’t agree with them doesn’t make them wrong; just makes you look silly.

While the food bank intends to help the ones in need, it’s more often than not helping those who want something for nothing. It doesn’t have to be Thanksgiving for scavengers to take freebies. Also, the food banks put churches in charge of handing out food to the ones who they want to receive it. Yes , I said “want,” cause if you’re not a member or someone they may not like, you will receive little to no food. The food bank should be the one in charge.

I almost got a ticket once from waiting in the intersection for traffic to pass on a green light. I was told by the policeman, it was illegal.

Fans of Brooks County would like to give thanks for the reporting of the Trojans football team by Christian Malone. He is fair and gave them the praise they deserve. Thanks Christian. You are number one! We appreciate you!

Now the Democrats are blaming NOAA (the weather channel) because of the flooding with Sandy and the people’s lack of preparedness! Have they never heard of “flood insurance”? Probably not. It’s a government program they have to pay for. And here all along I thought it was Bush’s fault.

    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!”
