Rant & Rave for Monday, Jan. 28, 2013

-- — Why are so many given permits to burn on windy days? One spark is all it takes to get out of control.

Obama must have made a C- in his civics class in school. He does not understand the Constitution and knows nothing about the Second Amendment.

The Lanier Co. Primary School had an excellent Pep Rally last week. A big thank you goes out to the boys basketball team for entertaining the students. The students had a fantastic time.

Explain to me how requiring a photo identification for voting denies voting to minorities and the poor. In each case where a law was adopted, there were provisions to give them out free to those who couldn't afford them and race had nothing to do with obtaining one. These laws were made to prevent multiple votes by the same person or by illegal immigrants.

A traffic light that stays red for two minutes? Ha...try five! The light at the corner of Burton and Oak streets needs to be addressed. That one has been ran many times.

To the Quitman Police Dept. officer that travels Lawson Pond Road between Morven and Hahira in the department's large black SUV, slow down! My cruise control is set on 62 on a clear day and you always pass me like I'm sitting still! Your lights or siren is not on so I'm assuming you are just traveling to and from work. If not, turn on your lights and siren!

Thursday morning went to the store and saw the shortage of ammunition being generated by the very people complaining about it. Two pallets of ammo and 30 people hovering like vultures on a dead possum. If everyone would buy normally, ammo would be plentiful and available for everyone. Sugar, coffee, gas are all caused by panic buying. Smarten up, folks.

    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.

    There are some wealthy physicians, business owners in this town who target only certain demographics for their business, and reject competition and growth. With the new statistics of a shrinking Valdosta, I hope you and your selfishness are quite happy when your comfort zone disappears!

    Chaining a dog 24/7 is nothing short of animal cruelty. It is time for our elected officials to pass a law against it.
