Rant & Rave for Tuesday, July 2, 2013

-- — Key phrase: owner of the old mill. You should’ve bought it. It’s still America. He can pile it up and burn it if he wants to. Mind your own business.

To everyone griping about the mill in Remerton. Why didn’t you put up the money when you had the chance to save it? Is it because you don’t have the money? Of course it is. Was the building supposed to just sit for the purpose of “historical value” until it started crumbling down?

Please report any animal left in a vehicle or on a chain. This is animal cruelty and they should be charged.

Sorry for not waving at you on Sherwood Drive. If you were waving, you would see the glare on the windshield would prevent you to see who is driving much less who is waving.

I don’t think Paula Deen’s reputation is tarnished one bit! I think she should hold her head high and be proud of who she is and where she came from! Let the haters hate, that’s what they do best! At least she got out and started a living for herself and didn’t sit home on welfare all her life, but I bet no one cares about that, just about something that happened 30-plus years ago!

I can't understand how our country can survive with this President and his administration. Who is worse, the IRS or the First Family? They are on a trip to Africa and it’s only costing the taxpayers 100 million dollars! The IRS is ahead of those figures with all their parties and conferences and the inept leaders they have hired. The economy is in dire trouble and these people just don’t seem to care just as long as they don’t miss out on any trips or perks!

    I want to thank Brittney who has been my family’s favorite waitress at Cheddar’s since they opened their doors. Saturday night was no exception. She never lost her composure while I witnessed some crude treatment from the customers seated near us. Keep your head up.

    VDT, please refrain from posting gun control comments. My son and I were at breakfast and he mentioned the low price of assault rifles at a gun show. I said that I was opposed to these. Two fellows overheard this and on their way out, the larger one said that I sounded like some the "communists" writing against America in the newspaper. He said that if were up to him I would be “lined up.” He got into a dilapidated Dodge pickup with anti-Obama, pro NRA, and a Baptist Church bumper sticker.

    It wasn’t  Remerton where  the rats were escaping to Azalea Drive, it was  from the raw sewage. At least  they are smarter than people.

    Thomas Jefferson said that we don't keep and bear fire arms for any other reason than to protect ourselves from tyrannical government action. That is why the liberals are trying to suppress Christians’ freedom of speech and why the government is trying to label gun ownership as a bad idea.

    The Swiss issue all adult men a firearm. Owning a gun does not condone, or create, violence. Lay blame on the person not the tool. If you really believe that banning firearms will end the violence you are sadly misled. All that will happen is law abiding people will not have guns and the criminal (who doesn't obey the law anyway) will.

    I don't know of any gun owners who fantasize about being "the good guy with a gun." Just when you think you have heard the most ignorant statement possible, along comes one that tops them all.

    Monday, I observed a woman at Walmart getting into her car, with two boys around the age of 8, one of which seated a young infant on his own lap in the rear seat, not using his seat belt. As the lady began backing out, I jumped out of my car and asked her to put that baby in a car seat. Stupid! Please, parents, don’t have a kid, if you don’t care to put them in a seat belt, or wear yours.

    To all Facebookers: You look like idiots when you post these “dares” of jumping in cold water or pictures without makeup. What do you think you are accomplishing? Absolutely nothing ... Send money to support the organizations and then you will be making a difference.

    I smell something even worse than the Withlacoochee River. A big tax increase to help pay for all the lawsuits. Someone needs to pay for this and it isn't the citizens of Lowndes County.

    The rodeo was a great event for the area, but hopefully next year there will be more seating. Many people paid ahead of time and didn’t get to see anything.
