Rant & Raves for Thursday, December 6, 2012

VALDOSTA — One big Rave for the Williams family on Wendover and their Christmas Musical light show. We heard they also put the light show on the Relay for Life float in the Valdosta Christmas Parade.

This Hill Avenue detour is going to be just wonderful with the CSX train keeping the road blocked every few minutes.

Just to say a great big thanks to the neighborly folks who helped me get my car started when it stalled in the pick-up line at Berrien Primary in Nashville Monday afternoon. There ARE still nice and helpful folks in the world!

The retiree complaining about the graduate student having health insurance thanks to Obama's health care plan clearly does not understand how this plan works. It allows young people to stay on their parents' insurance until the age of 26, not a public plan paid for by taxpayers. Either way, shouldn't we be happy that more of our fellow citizens can now afford health care?

All this hoopla about a police officer buying a homeless man boots, people really don’t understand that 99 percent of cops are the good guys. The lady cop at my daughter’s school is always buying the kids shoes, jackets and clothes for kids that really need it!!

The "Free Phone" program was started under Reagan. Please know your history before you start ranting, you make conservatives look bad.

The article about those homeless people under the overpass was sad. The churches should work to build a homeless shelter instead of the big fancy churches I see in town.

The Bible never, not once, ever authorizes a new testament pastor to collect tithes. He is not a Levite and he will never be a Levite. Only a Levitical priest is authorized to take tithes. Tithes were also only food. They were never cash either.

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    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.
