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.

    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.
