Rants & Raves

VALDOSTA — How I practice my faith, how I vote, and what I watch on television come under the heading of “my business.” I mind mine, you mind yours and it’ll be just fine. Have a nice day.

Calling someone blissfully ignorant because they “believe” in global warming is laughable. Global warming is proven by science. It’s not a belief; it’s a fact. You just proved that instead of finding out information for yourself (like us Yankee liberals), you let the Fox News pundits tell

you what is “true” and “false.”

Everyone has an opinion and everyone should agree to disagree. No one has to think the same as you. That’s what makes the world — difference in people. Why are your thoughts always right? Wrong!

Out of 600 graduates, you don’t think 200 of them can be honor graduates? That’s a terrible and negative thing to say. These kids have worked hard to have a good average. When I graduated almost 15 years ago, you needed an A average over all four years to graduate with honors. Out of 450, at least a hundred and twenty-five were honors. And good for every single one of them!

Eight-thousand years ago when the rising Mediterranean Sea topped a cliff and inundated 168,500 square miles of prime farm land (creating the Black Sea), the humans understood it as retribution for their sins and thus created the “science” of Global Warmism. Nothing much changes, folks.  

The City of Lake Park sure does look unkempt. Weeds and grass in sidewalks, gutters, and all road shoulders. Nothing is ever edged. ...

They used to do a great job keeping our city looking so clean and pretty.

In regards to the county commissioners wanting to raise taxes, what happened to the 1 percent SPLOST revenue you all asked everybody to vote for? It is very confusing. Use the SPLOST money.

You can’t intimidate me with your climate change error. I have read Psalms 104 and know Who holds the future.

    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.
