Rants & Raves

for Thursday, June 5, 2014

VALDOSTA — Rant & Raves is full of people who yearn to be free ... of other people.

I feel so sorry for the atheists but the devil loves them.

The anti-religious rants just keep on coming. They remind me of Gollum when confronted with good. “It hurts, Precious, it hurts!”

I think it is time we set all the prisoners in Gitmo loose in the Middle East so we can kill them with drones. It looks like the only politically acceptable solution.

We have the largest coal-fired electric plant in the entire Western Hemisphere located in the center of Georgia. Expect our electric rates to skyrocket under Mr. Obama’s newest carbon rules.

I vote for slashing the department heads salaries. These people make over $100,000 a year to sit on their butts and suggest ways to spend money. Want to cut even more money, start looking at the way these people waste money. What makes it so bad is these same people are riding around in tax-paid fueled vehicles. A good place to start would be the parks and rec. and their equipment expenses. Did Lowndes/Valdosta really need a mobile stage that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars?

Don’t be fooled! The “prisoner” exchange is just a diversion to get the media attention off the VA scandal and Benghazi. What a threat the Taliban will be to military and civilians with five of their main men back in action! Obama has made another “executive order” that has the potential to hurt more Americans, and for the release of a deserter!

To the person who said for the ranter to keep their opinion/beliefs to himself/herself, this person needs to keep his opinion to himself and not put it in the newspaper.

The person who said there is no heaven or hell, you must not have read the Bible. Jesus talked about hell more so in the New Testament than He did in the Old Testament. You need to get real. When you do pass away, you will find out there is proof what you spoke of because there is a heaven and hell.

The person complaining about the lady’s sign in regards to hell needs to move to Iran.

Cynthia Perry-Crawford’s article in Wednesday’s paper hits the mark right on and I want to praise her.

Snakes, rats and insects are in higher grass areas and homes around it. People are just lazy to not mow. Get out from in front of the TV, computer and cell phone and you would have time.

    Estimated that 10 percent of the U.S. population are career crooks, caught and not caught. Crime is the most logical career choice, all things considered. Because our governments (politicians) and their cronies have jiggled all systems to promote crime. That’s how 10 percent puts such fear in 90 percent. Causing great expense in security and causing the great self-defense gun debate.

    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!
