Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2014

-- — I would kindly ask the person writing the Rant and Rave comparing President Obama's speech to Hitler to please consider reading history. There is a substantial difference between someone trying to make life equal for all Americans by putting more money in their wallets from a man who committed mass genocide against people of another religion and gave their personal possessions to his allies. No one who has ever spoken out against Obama has disappeared to never be seen again nor had their assets seized.

If you will notice, some of the litter along our once beautiful roadways is actually household garbage bags, some of which are split open from traffic hitting them and wild animals plundering. How can this be? It's futile for citizens to pick this mess up because the job is unending. I know because I've tried. What do we do?

Good ‘ol Valdosta’ pushing the panic button? The ‘panic button’ was not pushed in Atlanta and how did that work out? Thank you Valdosta for being ‘safe’ rather than ‘sorry’ as Atlanta was during the storm.

I sure hope the city is making the developer put in a left turn lane on Jerry Jones near Gornto or it is going to be a mess backing traffic up to the intersection. Come on developers do what is right before there is a problem.

How much longer is the 5 mil “Valdosta Downtown Tax” going to last? I just posted one of my property tax bills to my Ledger Card. I had a $2,200 bill and the portion paid to “Valdosta Downtown Tax” was $306 and $62 to the Industrial Authority. Let's defund both of these wasteful operations!

Thanks to the lady who found my cell phone in Sam’s on Saturday and returned it to me. God bless you!

    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!”
