Rants & Raves

for Wednesday July 9, 2014

VALDOSTA — I’m an American, not a Republican or Democrat. It scares me when people pledge allegiance to a “party” and believe only their party is right about everything. The best examples of how that turns out are communist and Nazi parties, and some of the propaganda is starting to sound similar.

A woman who drives a car, but can’t change a tire, is no more irrational than a man who eats food but can’t cook. Have a nice day.

I don't see why taxpayers have to pay for separate primaries for these nut cases to run around stating “their” party is the truth, the light, the only party. Some states have moved to save taxpayers this added expense. Everyone, regardless of party, runs in one primary and the two receiving the most votes, regardless of party, proceed to a runoff.

Rave to SGMC’s staff on the 5th Wing, Nurses Ed, Sally and the rest of the staff were awesome taking care of me when I was there. I had broke a rib, hurt my knee and chest. They were an awesome crew.

Many thanks to Tom Crosby, Benny McKeen and Lake Park Fire Department during a fire on the 4th of July. They were very courteous and very professional. I am very appreciative. Thank you very much!

I truly believe if we are forced to accept Obamacare, then all the physicians should be  forced to accept it.

Obama has done numerous acts that call for impeachment. He has forced health care down our throats, allowed thousands of illegal aliens to enter the U.S. He continues to turn his back on everything America stands for, he has used the IRS for personal reasons. We the people need to vote this man out of office. And now to top it off, I have heard that our troops in Afghanistan will only be getting two meals a day. When does this madness stop? When will you, Obamazombies, wake up? I did not vote color; I voted for the man who I thought would represent the interests of the American people.

    Estimated that 10 percent of the U.S. population are career crooks, caught and not caught. Crime is the most logical career choice, all things considered. Because our governments (politicians) and their cronies have jiggled all systems to promote crime. That’s how 10 percent puts such fear in 90 percent. Causing great expense in security and causing the great self-defense gun debate.

    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!
