Rants & Raves

for Thursday, June 12, 2014

VALDOSTA — Fox News Twitter accounts? Really! Just look in this column each day and you’ll see the same liberal rants using different words, but all saying the same thing. Guess all the other liberal networks aren’t enough for you?

I wonder what you poor libs would do if you couldn't try to run people's lives for them? Maybe spend some time trying to find facts instead of making up stuff out of thin air!

Will someone please explain the premise behind the gray benches placed at low foot traffic areas throughout our community? Zero intentions to take away from a charitable cause, just feel our appearance within these public spaces could improve. Perhaps the beneficiary would be willing to fundraise through marketing materials placed off public property?

Obama says we leave no serviceman behind; well, what about the marine they are holding in Mexico? He made a wrong turn and has been there for months. What about him, President? Oh maybe it’s because he isn’t a Muslim.

Many laws, both good and bad, are passed and signed into being. Sometimes it’s a knee-jerk reaction to a terrible incident and sometimes it’s strictly politically motivated. Unfortunately we now have a government that thinks the President can bypass Congress with executive orders. One that thinks it’s OK to break the law and trade a traitor for five terrorists without congressional approval.

If Tea Party types are killing people in Las Vegas, why are they winning primaries anywhere in the USA?

Watched good ol’ Faux Newz this morning, man-oh-man, they sure hate Hillary. Made all sorts of claims against her, everything except drowning puppies in the bath tub. Those Faux people are crazy.

A shout out to two airmen who came to my rescue within the past several months when my car broke down twice on I-75. One was stationed in Warner Robins. He replaced an alternator on my vehicle after waiting with me for more than an hour for the tow truck. The other, a Moody airman, gave me a ride to Valdosta when my vehicle stranded me around Cordele. How helpful! Super nice guys!

What is the purpose of the Valdosta Stadium turf? Why did they change it? It needs to say Valdosta Wildcats with the colors black and gold. It is not VSU stadium. If VSU wanted a stadium, instead of buying the old Ashley Cinemas and building that new building, they should have built a stadium.

    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.
