Rant & Rave for Monday, Dec. 17, 2012

-- — Why would you allow a child of a drunken restaurant patron to continue to thump you on the head without complaining to management?

Got blown away in USAToday contest. Didn’t need the money or pride. Never would have believed that Lowndes County would have gave up. Losing your touch.

A great big Rave to Gary at SGMC Pulmonary Department. Thank you for being so friendly and kind to our mother. She will never forget you. You made her day with your kindness. Keep up the good work.

That chick is either new to “Winnersville” or one crayon short of an eight pack, because that “Seasons Greetings” sign has been at Five Points for at least 20 years. With that being said, if I were to rule the world it would read, “Merry Christmas, Y’all!”

I love the Snoopy on Jerry Jones and the Christmas cards, displayed in Eager subdivision. But, folks, check out a home in Cross Creek, located off of Bemiss. It is amazing! There are over 1,000 lights and the family starts working on it weeks before Halloween. Enjoy!

All intersections on Perimeter have a red light but Howell Road. There are two elementary schools near and traffic is horrible. Our children’s lives must not be a priority. What does it take a busload to be hit by a semi or log truck?

Kudos to the sweet lady at the Inner Perimeter Post Office for helping my mother-in-law with her Christmas cards. You did an amazing job!

I don’t see anything wrong with the legalizing marijuana. While I do not use it nor want to use it, I believe it is safer than cigarettes, alcohol and prescription drugs.

Kids these days have no respect for anyone. It is absurd. They are not taught manners, respect for their elders and have no sense of get-up-and-go. I dislike being around this new crop of kids.

    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!”

    I think that all facilities owned by the city and county should have signs banning firearms in the buildings. I don’t feel safe if a firearm is there when I am there.
