Rant & Raves for Thursday, November 8, 2012

VALDOSTA — Now the election is over....All politicians need to do their part and remove all their signs in 48 hours. Or let the county. They should impose a $5 fee for picking them up!

Way to really support your team. Berrien County has the first region win in years and you’re complaining about there being too many coaches? I bet you didn’t realize some of those coaches do not get paid for coaching football and the other personnel are volunteers as well.

Don't look down on those who need help, help them or direct them to an agency that can help. You never know when it might be you needing the help. None of us are above having problems. Some people just have more difficulty overcoming them.

I agree that the radio volume has gotten out of control. And I like my music loud, so for me to say this, it must be bad. Driving around VSU the other evening, behind a red truck/SUV type vehicle and the music was so loud, it hurt my ears and I couldn't hear my own radio. Turn it down!

I agree with the reader regarding parents bringing their children into other neighborhoods to trick or treat. Of the children, half are not even in a costume and don't even bother to say thank you, then they throw their trash on the ground. Please, next year, trick or treat in your own neighborhood!

Way to go, Valdosta. You've voted down SPLOST and with it all hope of ever being a decent community for young professionals. What idiots!

I hope you're happy with the "raise" you gave yourself by voting down SPLOST. The rest of us have to do without community improvements because of you.

To those who voted NO on SPLOST, your public safety workers thank you. No new additional fire stations or EMS stations. We will continue to serve you with pride using radio equipment that may or may not work, so if we get hurt and need help ourselves, oops! I say again, thank you!

    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.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!
