Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Dec. 24, 2013

--- — Congratulations to Cathy who sells appliances at Lowe’s on her 10-year anniversary working there.

Thanks to Cedric at Harvey’s on Bemiss Road for turning in my purse to management. I left it in a buggy. Thank you very much. I tried to give him a reward for it but he refused to take it. There are still good people. I had my bill money and everything else in there. God bless you, Cedric.

Colson Printing did it again. They gave the public a beautiful calendar. Thanks again to Wendy and staff.

My husband and I moved here from Jacksonville where there is a Publix on every street corner, and the one on Gornto is still the best. Special thanks to Santiago in the Deli, Rodney in the meat department, and Dylan who works up front.

I  just moved to Valdosta, Ga. I am with Moody Air Force Base. I was having trouble with my new car and someone told me to go see Jim Norton at Ray Norton Auto Center. He researched my car and said there was a recall and warranty on my car. Now that is customer service and one honest person. God will always take care of this business. Thank you, Jim. A car passed everyone speeding on Perimeter in a 45 zone and a cop going the other way ignored it. I see this all the time. I guess he was going after his meal.

That guy from “Duck Dynasty” had every right to say what he said and A&E has every right to fire him if they don’t like what he said.

Georgia Power appreciates you blaming their rate hike on the President. They’ve raised rates every year for years. Were those Obama’s fault, too?

I do not see charter schools versus teachers. Both sides are battling the same thing. If the class size is 10 or 50, four disruptive students taking 15 minutes of each class hour to deal with, takes 50 days out of each 200-day school year. Those four disruptive students rob the other students of a quarter of their learning time, and exhaust teachers. Teachers and charter schools both want to ditch those four students. Unfortunately, teachers can’t.

AIDS once killed Americans daily. Today it is relegated to an epidemic only affecting poor countries. How quickly we conveniently forget.

    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.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!
