Rants & Raves

for Wednesday, March 19, 2014

VALDOSTA — The rant in Monday's paper regarding the Medicaid phone line is 100 percent correct. I have been trying since December to reach them, and it's the same excuse every time. I went to the office and picked up papers and carried them back, they were going to call me and I have never heard a word?

Rave for the employee at Sonic on Bemiss Road who helped me replace the dead battery in my car Sunday afternoon. He was a big help and kept me from being stranded.

I think Facebook should be renamed and call it “Two Face Book” or “Liars Two Face Book.” People go to church, jump up and down, shout, pretend to be a Christian and then get on Facebook and write all kinds of trash and lies.

You want to limit the places where card-carrying legal people can carry their guns? Well if you take it with you then you have to leave it in the car, the thieves break into the car and steal your gun while you’re inside. That helps a lot. I wonder why there are so many vehicle break ins lately. I wish everybody who can get a permit and pass a background check could take them anywhere. That would be like having 10,000 police instead of a hundred. Maybe the dumb criminals would wake up the and give up a life of crime.

The person should be fired who decided to do construction on River Street at the same time as construction on West Hill Avenue along with those supposedly directing traffic on River Street who are not coordinating their signs and hand signals to drivers.

The Obama administration is handing over the Internet to the UN, the one that the Pentagon and our military created. (Don’t tell Al Gore; he thinks he did all that.) This is another blow to liberty and a victory to all the dictators around the world.

    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.
