Rant & Rave for Friday, May 23, 2014

-- — I don't know who decided to close the polling place in Barney but this is totally ridiculous. I had to drive out of my way and stand in line to cast my ballot. Someone should have mentioned this before they decided to close it without asking the residents of Barney. I pay taxes, too!

Not only are liberals so weak-minded that they can’t ignore the TV in the doctor's office, they have to run home and advertise their weakness in Rant & Rave.

Toss those noisy boxes from the doctor's office. Cancel the cable TV and beef up the free wifi. Let them watch the show of their choice on their smart phones while using headphones. No ’phones? Sell them at $4 pair ...

Next time you are in the doc’s office and his Fox News stirs you up, ask for a chill pill. You’ll feel better and the rest of us will, too.

Here’s a radical idea, just turn the TV off and wait in silence, read or (horrors above) strike up a conversation with another human being, face to face. I tend to pick a doctor depending on how confident I am in his skills. I could care less what he has on his TV or who he voted for or if he has a harem of Albanian Midgets at home.

People just do not have respect for their neighbors anymore. Not only has the owner of a brand-new house not mowed their grass/weeds since moving in a few months ago, they have used four tires in their front lawn as planters! It looks so tacky!

Fox News proves that hate can make money.

If watching FOX news in a doctor’s office offends you so much then let’s just disconnect all TVs. ABC, NBC, CBS and even CNN here of late offends me. While we are at it, let’s ban all those annoying cell phones and electronic gadgets.

    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.
