Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Nov. 26, 2013

--- — Has the Industrial Authority actually landed any new industry/business in the last few years? They sure are good at spending taxpayer money on new offices, new industrial parks, and trips to faraway places. Maybe if they brought in a new industry/company every now and then, Valdosta/South Georgia would be a much better place.

I was one of those excited to see Olive Garden come to Valdosta, but very disappointed at the cafeteria-style dining experience. The restaurant has none of the character of the Tallahassee restaurant and the food honestly tasted like a microwaved frozen meal. Also, when you have to explain the amount of a true “pour” of wine to a teenage server, well let’s just say it doesn’t warrant a return visit. Cheddars, however, seems to have gotten it right as their parking lot is always full.

To the thugs breaking into cars on Studstill Road, you are going to get seriously hurt.

I would like to remind everyone that the Obama administration’s argument before the Supreme Court was the government. could tax any product under the interstate commerce clause. You are paying a tax, not a fine. We the people should refuse to pay the penalty fine and force the government to send you a tax bill from the IRS.

A big rant to the parents that allow their underage children to roam the mall parking lot and act like a bunch of hoodlums. Your children are awful and that comes from awful parents.

A hiccup for the Obama care website? It didn’t work at all. Three years and 700 billion dollars later. Go ahead trust him. He’s from the government and he’s here to help.

Wish Valdosta had a veterinarian where senior citizens could afford to take their animals. Our pets are important and we love them, but we can not give them the care they need to due to high cost. Maybe a retired veterinarian could help senior citizens at a rate we can pay.

    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.
