Rants & Raves

for Wednesday, May 28, 2014

VALDOSTA — To the person that ranted about a new neighbor’s yard and planters. Did you take time to welcome your new neighbor? Did you ask if they needed help maintaining their yard while they were settling in? Did you find out if they have a lawn mower? I guess not! The flowers will grow over the tires and hide them. Did you think of that? I guess not. Do you remember “Do unto others”? I guess you don’t!

I love a TV in a doctor’s office or any office I have to wait. It helps time pass and others to focus maybe on it, not getting into your business. I would like to rant though of the staff in doctors offices and hospitals talking so loud so everyone can hear your health problems or why you are there.

Thank you to the nice young man who paid for mine and my daughter’s order at Chick-fil-A (Inner Perimeter Road). This was after we had spent 10 long hours in ER at South Georgia Medical Center. We were exhausted and hungry and had stopped by almost at closing time!

Blissful ignorance seems to be a requirement for “global warmers,” liberals, and the Democratic Party. Yes, I do watch Fox!

Hurrah for the NRA who so aptly arm America’s mentally unstable sick folks with lethal semi-automatic weapons thus allowing them to inflict carnage and mayhem at will. Wait, hang on, yes, it’s not guns that do the damage, I keep forgetting, guns are no more dangerous than wet mops or fence posts.

Monday’s Fox News follower admitted to something astute people already knew; Fox is a wing of the Republican Party whose mission is to criticize kooky Democrats and other despicable liberals. Far and balanced ... ha!

    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!”

    I think that all facilities owned by the city and county should have signs banning firearms in the buildings. I don’t feel safe if a firearm is there when I am there.
