Where will they go?

-- — What ever happened to freedom of speech, or is it only for certain ones? I think children and grandchildren will be proud to know their family lived by the Bible. Read it.

The ranter does not understand that a cold is caught from people inside a warm home, not outside in cool weather. Germs grow in warm environments. Kids need to be outside, off their behinds, running and playing!

Come on up Bemiss Road Mediacom. After talking with my neighbors we would welcome you with open arms!

There are 364 days until Christmas and some people already have their lights up!

Hey Inner Perimeter post office, how about connecting the south part of the drive way to the mail boxes to the parking lot? I think it would allow for better traffic flow.

Why have a dog if you are going to keep it chained up in the yard?

Good job planning out the detour going east while the overpass is being built on 84. Now instead of going over one set of tracks we get to cross over four. Relax about traffic going down 84. People drive through construction zones all the time.

Dear neighbor, if you are going to constantly watch me don’t give me an evil look when I stare back.

Rant and Rave is the eyes and ears of South Georgia. Thanks so much.

How could it not be to the benefit of the whole society for everyone to have access to healthcare? We need massive reform of our healthcare system, but the pharmaceutical companies and medical communities will never allow anything that might reduce their incomes in any way. They have the money and thus the control.

Thanks to all the restaurants that opened on Christmas for those who couldn’t cook dinner for themselves or live alone.  Thanks so much.

    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!

    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!”
