Rant & Rave for Tuesday, March 25, 2014

-- — Be happy for the short time you spent on getting Obamacare. I, as well as most I know, have spent hours trying to get signed up and problems resolved. Still ongoing.

The only China trips that ever hurt us were the ones Nixon and George senior took to open up China for business for their Wall Street/big bank friends. As a result, China has a nice new military and needs all the world’s natural resources to keep afloat, too.

Quit complaining about some raw sewage. It is being handled in the perfect, “the EPA is ruining everything,” Republican way; just float it on down the stream.

I read with interest the rave from the person that had signed up for Affordable Health Care and now thinks they have regular Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance. If your BCBS ID card has the words Pathway or Pathway X at the bottom of the card, you are enrolled in a special network established by BCBS. Even though our local hospitals might accept Pathway in payment, very, very few of the local doctors do. Go to BCBSGA web site and search for doctors that accept Pathway. Just one more thing not told up front about Affordable Health Care.

Do Valdosta State sport alumni get into the sporting event they graduated out of at no charge?

The LHS Drama Club production of “Shrek” was outstanding! Kudos to this hard-working, talented group of young people. Thoroughly entertaining! I’m looking forward to seeing their future productions.

I want to say a special thank you to the employees of the Lowndes County Animal Shelter. They have emotionally taxing jobs that they rarely get praised for. Maybe the citizens of Lowndes County can make their jobs a bit easier by having their pets spayed and neutered. Lowndes County euthanizes about 7,000 animals per year.

    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!”

    I think that all facilities owned by the city and county should have signs banning firearms in the buildings. I don’t feel safe if a firearm is there when I am there.
