Rant & Raves for Thursday, February 21, 2013

VALDOSTA — Again, I say that I own an AR-15 and it has never been used to threaten or kill anyone. It's used in recreational target shooting in a safe manner. Stop trying to blame an inanimate object and blame the human that misuses it.

I just wanted to give a big sorrow-filled goodbye to Mrs. Angela Sams at the VA office here in town. We hate to see you go. You are an Angel in disguise.

Small business is one thing, but what's the excuse for big business cutting hours to avoid paying health care? They aren't on the verge of shutting down, they're making millions per day.

Come on, Walmart on Perimeter, I came in to purchase one item and had to wait in electronics for 45 minutes until a worker that works up front finally came and unlocked the item I wanted. Then I get up front to pay and have to wait 27 more minutes in line because there was only two registers open. And this was around 7 p.m. There’s plenty of well-qualified people that need jobs. Hire, you need help.

As far as Star Parker goes, she wouldn’t be where she is today if it weren’t for all of those government entitlements she received.

For those too ignorant to understand, only FOX reveals the truth as to the lies, deception and corruptness by this liberal left-wing administration. While this country slips to ruins, our so-called leader enjoys another game of golf.

Gun nutters fail to understand the difference between 400-horsepower cars, private jets, poisonous snakes and AR-15s. A 400-horsepower car is designed for transportation as are private jets. Poisonous snakes are products of nature and the venom serves as a means of procuring food. An AR-15 by contrast was designed for the military with the express purpose of killing enemy soldiers with efficiency.

    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.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!
