Rant & Raves for Thursday, April 25, 2013

VALDOSTA — It is amazing how many people misunderstand the Second Amendment. It is even more amazing that when liberals are faced with failure of moronic gun control attempts, they start misinformation campaigns. In this paper, there are regular attacks on the NRA. The NRA started as an organization to be sure black citizens’ right to bear arms were not infringed. The NRA’s agenda is to protect the Second Amendment.

If coaches want their players to give 100 percent and to give it their all, then they need to earn the respect of those players. The players have to admire and look up to the coach in order for them to play with all of their heart and soul. The coaches will be amazed as to what they’ll get out of their players if they learn and coach by this valuable lesson.

How ignorant as Southerners can we sound? There is no such word as vee-hicle. You sound like hicks on the radio and on television when you speak this way and it reflects on all of us as a whole.

You have to crucify your conscience on a daily basis to think like a liberal. Blurring the line between right and wrong and playing this mind game of extreme tolerance is a quick recipe for destruction. Word to the wise: They will take everyone of us with them if we allow it!

Trying to fathom the criticism of President Obama for not “showing emotion” for the tragic events. I want a leader who is calm and rational in a crisis, not one prone to histrionic displays of emotion. Conservatives it seems will stoop to any low to criticize a “liberal.”

The recent gun control vote results in the Senate did not show anything but common sense. The only thing gun control does is prevent law-abiding citizens from owning firearms. If a person decides to kill someone he or she will do it regardless of the law and it will not matter what type of gun that’s used. Assault gun or pellet gun, all of them require someone to pull a trigger.

    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!
