Rant & Rave for Tuesday, June 10, 2014

-- — Do all Fox News watchers have the same Twitter account, because whatever is announced on Fox the previous day is repeated as a Rant the next day ... verbatim?

No, it is not a joke, the God who created heaven and hell also created the universe and put everything into motion that results in day and night. His works are so marvelous that He declared that man would come to know him simply by looking at the beauty and complexity of his creation. Some of the most dedicated Christians were agnostics who set out to prove there is no God. God promises that if you honestly and objectively seek truth, you will find Him. I found him in a biology lab watching a single cell divide. Knowing the complexity of this simple task, I knew there was a creator, many years later I accepted him as my Savior.  

The new turf at Bazemore-Hyder Stadium is extremely disappointing. Valdosta High should not feel like they have to cater to VSU with generic logos and designs that fit both teams. It’s pretty clear which program has more history, tradition, and prestige, and which program should take a backseat in this town.

Does anyone know of a country that is doing well and has a great majority of citizens that are atheists, Muslim, or gay? No, I didn’t think so. The reason why America is on a downward spiral is because of people voting in candidates that will change laws in order to let them feel better about the sins they are committing. When we elect leaders who aren’t afraid to hurt a sinner’s feelings then America will prosper again.

Many that claim to be Christian are really not. They are followers of pastors and not followers of Christ. They act just like their leader. If the pastors can get away with divorce, remarriage, adultery, plagiarism, and lying, then why can’t the pastors’ disciples? Jesus said that many would brag about their works and He’d say He never knew them.

    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!

    It’s a shame to work for someone who gripes all the time. Never a “How are you” or “Thanks for your hard work!”
