Rant & Rave for Monday, Dec. 16, 2013

- — To the pet owners in Lakeland: If you want your pet, you need to keep them on your property. They are going to get run over while roaming all over town.

Really, Hahira? Cancel the parade three days before the weekend? This is South Georgia. The forecast may have said 80 percent chance of rain then but now it’s a 40 percent chance, and by Saturday morning, it will be 10 percent. Come on. Got lots of disappointed kids now. Thanks.

To the person who found my credit card in the parking lot of the Dollar Tree on Norman Drive: I can only hope you receive the joy and peace-of-mind that you unselfishly gave me.

Haven’t we the people had enough of Obama lies? Govt. health care the promises? What is it going to take for us to come together and be one voice and say, No more, do the right thing or get out.

I left my coupon book in the shopping cart at Walmart on Inner Perimeter Road. If anyone found it, I would appreciate it if they would call me. My name and number is in the index.

To the person defending the EBT cards, comparing that with Social Security and Medicare benefits and things elderly people get, is comparing apples and  oranges. Most senior citizens have earned their benefits. An EBT card is not earned. Forty-seven million people on EBT cards is not a drop in the bucket.

I think it is time for Mediacom to come clean. If someone is to get sick, they can’t call for help. Mediacom should step up to the plate, either leave or fix their problem. There needs to be another cable company.

Actually, I put my pants on two legs at a time. Usually with a running start and a jump!

    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!
