VALDOSTA — Why are Governor Deal and the Tea Party "scum"? Simply because you disagree with someone doesn't make them idiots. I was once told, and fully agree, that the only real idiot is one who believes theirs is the only way and anyone disagreeing with them are idiots.

The helpful ground moles are like Taxed Enough Already (TEA) members (working to do good). The destructive lawn grubs are destroyers, doing bad. Protecting the destroyers always grows government the best and broadest. Good people don't grow government. Oddly so many attack Taxed Enough Already (TEA) instead of the political grubs, the 2 parties that destroy, like grubs.

If this global warming gets any worse, I won't be able to pay my heating bills.

College and high school football is over, now let's devote each January, as we always do, to complaining about Christmas tree lights.

It was good to see they finally caught that fugitive banker. But what about all the locals around who were responsible for the bank failure of Park Avenue Bank....that was a much bigger loss to the Federal Reserve and shareholders, over $200 million? Look it up, it's all online.

I for one turn off the Christmas light show after Jan. 1st. We run a big light show that many enjoy every year. It starts on Thanksgiving night and all the family have a great time that night. Thanks to Valdosta Daily Times for the great comment we saw in Rant and Rave section. Little town of Hanson has a bright spot every year.

On Sunday, my son had a serious diabetic reaction out in front of his driveway. As I struggled to help  him, Jon and Michelle (strangers)  stopped to help. They are both nurses and stayed with us until he was all right. Thanks to another man also who came to our aid. May God bless all of them.

    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!

    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.
