Rant & Rave for Monday, Dec. 23, 2013

--- — Who should I blame besides the city of Hahira for canceling the parade? I didn't cancel it. I had a problem with them pulling the plug days beforehand, knowing how a forecast in South Georgia can change in just a few hours time. And I don't know where you live, but I live very near the parade route and it was not raining at festival or parade time. One other thing, I raise my children very well and don't need you to tell me when I can have the 3 of them outside.

States have different rules regarding notification of lottery winners. In Georgia, if you accept the winnings, your name is announced.

To the person who took the lights off our bushes in front of our yard, I hope you have a merry Christmas and I hope God will continue to bless you as you go along in your life. Thanks for helping us not to enjoy our holiday because you took our lights after we took the time to put them up. You have a happy holiday.

I know this has been discussed before. Where are some good Christmas lights to view in and around Valdosta? Thanks!

This rant is for those living in Lake Park traveling 41 South to Valdosta every morning. You really don’t think you can drive 75 miles per hour and not expect to slow down for oncoming traffic do you? Your impatient driving could cause a wreck or you to be cussed out or flipped off. If you are in that big of a rush, you should leave earlier.

Ever notice that the same people that want to legalize things that are illegal under our Constitution are basically the same that want to make illegal certain rights that are legal? Takes thought; perhaps that fact alone will disqualify this from being printed.

    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!”
