Rant & Rave for Tuesday, May 28, 2013

-- — Sad to see so many disappointing, mean comments about the Bridgemen’s trip to Hawaii. I had two children in the band and was excited for them for each trip they went on, California twice, New York, twice, Chicago, Orlando. The trips are planned well in advance, payment schedules set up and if enough kids can’t go or their parents can’t afford it, the band doesn’t go. So, I am sure that with all the negativity, the trip will get canceled again, sad for the kids, sadder that parents forget it’s about the kids, not them.

Can’t help but to wonder why Lowndes County is wasting the taxpayers’ money on civil action against Deep South Sanitation, instead of putting all that money on more important issues. If I have to write out a check for the service then I have the right to choose who I write that check out to. Deep South has given me wonderful service, they are locally owned and operated and the money stays right here in Lowndes County. The Commissioners say that they haven’t had any complaints about Advanced; they haven’t read the rant and rave section. I say next election is out with the old and in with the new. We the people of Lowndes County can make our voices heard loud and clear then.

Okay, my fearless leader is a very busy man with a lot of national and worldwide issues that need his attention. I don’t mean to be insensitive, but maybe those living in “Tornado Alley” should either take extra precautions during tornado season or move away. There is no reason why there shouldn’t be storm shelters in every home and facility in Tornado Alley and surrounding areas. After several years of devastation — everyone should’ve known better.

    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!
