Rants & Raves

for Wednesday, February 26, 2014

VALDOSTA — Thank you, Dexter Sharper for voting “No” for the gun bill. You are the only sane one.

I've been paying money to SGMC each and every month since my child was born. He spent one night in the hospital since then and now my current bill is over $6,000. I'm still paying every month but SGMC says if I don't pay them more, which I can't, they will send me to collections. Is there any help for the working middle class? We are paying all we can.

Really! This family is flat on our backs and all you can do is criticize. The funeral home did a fantastic job. You could have sat down if you got tired, but if you are that impatient you should have done us all a favor and stayed home. Shame on the VDT for printing such an insensitive rant.

A huge rave to the SGMC heart center. Once again I had superb treatment. All personnel were perfectly professional, caring and friendly. Special thanks to Dr. Cohen and Marissa. Bless you.

Was that Obama ranting on Rant & Rave? Said, "I vote that no more crackpot, ignorant, misinformed or any other comments be allowed which disagree in any manner with my comments. After all, mine are well informed, well thought out, and my way is the only way. If you disagree, you are stupid."

Thank you, State Representative Dexter Sharper for voting no to HB-875 which increases the likelihood for virtually anyone to own and carry guns, increasing danger to the public from sick people and those with hidden agendas.

Are we going through this Lowndes Hawaii trip thing again? Yes, it was approved. It's not mandatory and no one goes for free. The kids are given plenty of opportunities to raise the money for the trip, end of story. The chaperones, bus drivers, etc., may not be paying that much per person but they aren't going for free. Yes, $2,000 is a lot of money. But think about the airfare alone! Again, if you don't like it, don't send your kid.

    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.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!
