Rants & Raves

for Friday May 16, 2014

VALDOSTA — If public recognition of your son and daughter-in-law is so important to you, then take out a celebration ad in the VDT. More people will see it. If it was that important to them, then they could have requested an alternate graduation ceremony offered by VSU.

A big shout out to Kathryn and all the other ladies at PRBC Daycare. They are awesome. They stay late many days for my child alone. When I get stuck at work they always have my back. They are so loving. I am blessed to have them. They make this working Mama’s job a lot easier.

To the writer that says they don’t have the time nor money to cut their grass — you need to move into an apartment. It’s all about property values and respect for your neighbors who do care about their yards. I live next door to a renter that hasn’t cut their grass this year. Laziness!!

To the atheist and Christian haters out there listen up. If you’re right about your beliefs that there is no afterlife, no heaven, no hell, then no one has anything to worry about. But if you’re wrong, you’re the ones that just might have a problem. Life’s about choices. We need to make good ones.

In regards to the Blue Pool neighborhood, the city needs to go in there and clean it up, paint the curbs where no parking is allowed and trim the grass. Make it look like a  nice neighborhood. Don’t let it look like a state of disrepair please.

Where is the “like” button for Dr. West’s piece in Thursday’s paper? A lovely boulevard has been turned into a “what the heck were they thinking?!”

If you do not pay your mortgage, you will get behind and your home is foreclosed and removed. Same goes for your trash. You don’t pay your bill, they stop picking your trash up and then your can will be removed. Stop blaming Advanced Disposal because you neglected to pay your bill. These guys are running a business not a charity. Great job, Advanced Disposal. I am very pleased with your services.

    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.
