Rant & Rave for Monday, Sept. 30, 2013

-- — Valdosta has to complete the projects on the referendum in accordance with state law. They also have environmental agencies and current lawsuits that will make sure it happens. The increases in rates may cover the new debt already used and the million dollars taken out of the water and sewer fund every year but not new debt. Use your vote to change management and the council and let those not up for election know you want change. Vote for SPLOST to fix the problem and for the rest of the community that has important SPLOST projects.

To the Wildcat fans who tailgate on Jane Street. Come on people, clean up your mess! This is disrespectful to your city and to the team.

Important message again. If it's in my yard, then it's not bothering you, specifically regarding campaign signs. It’s only September and people have already started with the dirty politics. A sign won't determine who wins but removing it without my permission may determine if you get charged with possession of stolen property. Now may the best candidate win!

You must lead a sad and bitter life when all you can complain about is cars parked on a lawn that you don't even own. You ever thought to mind your own business? What a pathetic, whiney nation we have become!

The condition of the library shows the incompetence of our elected officials. My house was built in the ’60s also and I fix things as they are needed instead of waiting for them to become a disaster.

Thank you to the person who confirmed the laws for pedestrians and bicycle riders. The only thing worse than a know-it-all is a know-it-all that actually knows nothing at all. Bikes are considered a vehicle. So unless there are sidewalks available, bicyclists ride with the traffic and pedestrians walk against the traffic.

    Estimated that 10 percent of the U.S. population are career crooks, caught and not caught. Crime is the most logical career choice, all things considered. Because our governments (politicians) and their cronies have jiggled all systems to promote crime. That’s how 10 percent puts such fear in 90 percent. Causing great expense in security and causing the great self-defense gun debate.

    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!
