Rant & Raves for Tuesday, February 5, 2013

VALDOSTA — I would like to rave about the servers we had at Texas Road House Saturday. They went above and beyond. Will definitely be going back!!!

Is it really bothering you that much that the school zone at Westside is on for an extra hour a day? Is it really that inconvenient that you can't lower your speed for a grand total of a tenth of a mile, meaning you slow down for approximately 15 seconds before returning to non-school zone speeds?

Just because a person has a degree, diploma, master’s or doctorate doesn't mean he can or should do that as a career. All that means is that he paid for and passed tests to be certified. I know people with a license to drive who definitely shouldn't be behind a wheel.

Really frustrated with the comparison of drinking & driving and guns. I can't help but believe if a person who decides to drive a vehicle after they've been drinking, made a terrible decision which could result in a horrific ending, but by no means plan to find the nearest pedestrian to run down. However, if you point a gun at another person...your goal is CLEAR!

I'm tired of the media concentrating on only the two main political parties and then baiting them with whatever bad was said by someone in one of them. It's like a trouble maker egging on two people to fight, so they can have something to report. The focus should be on how can we work together and finally get something done. If we spend another four years bickering ... throw them all out and start over!

Signed up with Advanced Disposal. Two weeks and two phone calls later, still no bins. If the bins do show up, no glass can go in them. Backwards move, Lowndes County. A trash disposal company which does not take glass to recycle, calls it “contaminated,” is not exactly advanced or remotely green.

    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.
