Rant & Rave for Monday, Dec. 30, 2013

The Valdosta Daily Times

--- — Maybe you should do some studying before you jump on parents who let their kids play outside in cold weather. First, it’s not the cold weather that gives you a “cold.” In fact it occurs more in the winter because more people stay indoors in close quarters.

Stupid is as stupid does. A ranter says people have a right to express their opinion. Then the ranter calls people stupid for doing just that. What a hoot!

To the senior citizen who claims that he/she has “earned” the right to a discount. I’m not sure you know what the word “earned” means. You don’t earn something just because you lived past a certain age. People like you are what’s wrong with the United States today. You expect everything for free. Senior citizens and the AARP won’t let us reform Medicare or Social Security, so those programs probably won’t be there when my generation is older.

I am totally in agreement with the person ranting about spending $100 on crab legs with an EBT card! Things that are an extravagance like crab, porterhouse steaks, prime rib, and the like should not be purchased with an EBT card. Buy bread, eggs, cheese, cereal, chicken, fruit and vegetables that are nutritious for the family. What really infuriates me is that as a hard-working, middle-class American citizen that pays taxes, I am providing these people with a luxury that I do not enjoy myself!  

People who paid for fast delivery should be refunded but they should not blame Fedex and UPS for missing the Christmas deadline. They and thousands others were procrastinators that caused the last-minute bottle necks. Look in the mirror to see the cause of your child’s disappointment.

If you are going to defend “Duck Dynasty” get the name of the person who made the comments correct. It was not Uncle Si, it was the family patriarch Phil. Now who looks stupid?

OK, people, learn to use a self-checkout. When you stand behind a specific one, that is the one you use. There isn’t a line for all the self checkouts, just the one you are behind! You people in Winn Dixie Monday night were morons!

If the Rant and Rave is anything to go by, this part of South Georgia must be highly deficient of knowledge, wisdom, respect, tolerance, and peacefulness. High marks for ignorance — the kind you can’t change.
