Rant & Rave for Tuesday, July 8, 2014

-- — For every scientist you bring forth that says there is such a thing as global warming, I’ll bring two that says it is a myth.

Rave about construction on roads. How much longer will it be before they complete the Jo Ree North/Highland Heights  water/sewer project? The contractor estimates Labor Day, without further labor problems. Would be sooner if the company displayed some daily progress! Present road conditions is very hazards to expensive vehicles.

It is nice to know that all the competent doctors in Valdosta are absolutely refusing to take my “Obamacare.” We pay for the care, quite a bit of money in fact, to receive absolutely no care whatsoever in the town of Valdosta. Would someone please explain this to me? I have tried multiple doctors in several medical specialties, all without success.

It’s so shallow to think name-brand, expensive clothes, make you any better. It only shows how stupid you are when you could buy three  of something for the price of one you pay. Duh!

All you grocery store people listen up. I do not go to the grocery store to be entertained. I simply go to buy the necessary food to eat in order to keep me going. The booming screeching overhead music is not what I need or want. Actually it isn’t music. It’s racket and makes me hurry through so as to run to my car ASAP.  

What, governments have to pay for things which the community enjoys and benefits from? I thought that these things just appeared when needed. Too bad we can’t just print our own money.

So President Obama’s approval rating is hitting rock bottom. Remember that 40 percent of Americans believe the sun revolves around the earth and over 55 percent can’t identify England on an unlabeled map of the world (most place it where Iceland is). We live in a post-modern world and Americans remain pretty ignorant of most things which count. The French are much smarter and they love Obama.

    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!”
