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!

    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!
