Rant & Rave for Tuesday, July 9, 2013

--- — As a walker, maybe I don’t wave because of road hazards, traffic, maintaining pace, have something on my mind, can’t see you behind your dark windows, or you wave at me so late that I can’t respond before you’ve passed.

I own a vacant corner lot in the City of Valdosta in a residential neighborhood. I have already posted no trespassing signs because people felt it was OK to walk their dogs on this lot and let them go to the bathroom and then not clean up after them. Today, I drove by and see that someone has dumped two tires on my property. I verified with the police. Dumping is against the law. I will now post no dumping signs. I also have to find a tire company and pay them to dispose of the tires. What is wrong with people? I work hard and I do not have any money to spare. I definitely do not have money to clean up after other people who are just plain sorry.

Don’t worry if you forget the bad things of your past. There will be a lot that remembers for you.

To the parents who bring their screaming baby to a 9:40 p.m. movie, DON’T! Or at least have the decency to take her out!

Last week someone commented on the dangers caused by trees and shrubs being planted so near the highway and blocking the view of drivers. I, too, think this is an issue that should be addressed by the city/county authorities to make for safer driving conditions.

Awesome July 4th 5K!

Can 84 be used outside of construction hours? Surely they aren’t working 24/7.

After I had to wait two hours after my appointment time the doctor had the nerve to ask me why I switched doctors! Duh! If I were two hours late you would have canceled my appointment.

    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.
