Rant & Rave for Monday, Feb. 10, 2014

-- — No one wants to be around pot heads or the smoke. You never know who cannot handle it. It has caused many a heartache from suicides, murders, etc.

If the folks in the Crestwood subdivision could put some reflectors or signs on their round-abouts that would be great. They are very hard to see in the dark.

The ranter who called President Obama his highness has lost all credibility when he shows no respect. A bipartisan congressional committee agrees with the White House’s conclusion on Benghazi. Our President loves America.

Have you seen signs on the churches that read “Bank”? It’s amazing how many people that don’t work, want work, will come to church when they want to beat money off some of the members. I thought it worked the other way around, put something in the plate, not take out of the plate.

Just got noticed that I have to pay for my child’s AP class final test at Lowndes High School! Our letter says the county has had to make budgets cuts. But that certain group of people that lives off the government gets this for free as well.

Your laughter only shows how gullible you are. Blame game, excuses, hypocrisy, bigotry, name calling, and race baiting are all the left seems to know. Maybe you should do some research such as Google “Rebel Pundits.” Northerners are wising up; it’s time the South does as well. By the way, Fox is the only ones who reported the Rebel Pundits last week, where was your network? Oh, they don’t broadcast the truth .

The person who thinks the “Christian Right” rejects the concept of climate change because of some biblically based state of confusion is delusional himself. Get a grip.

I would make a healthy bet that a majority of the ranters about Fox news, the Christian right and those mean, old Republicans are sitting on the couch drawing every subsidy they can sponge off the government and taxpayers.

One raved that the Industrial Authority here is the best loser among all the losers (Albany, Moultrie, Thomasville, Tifton, Waycross). It’s not how many new businesses open, it’s how many citizens have an income below poverty level. TitleTown’s is so great we got the title “third poorest city in the USA.” Yet our leaders still use the Detroit model. As if BRAC will not consider that when deciding to close Moody.

    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!”
