Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2013

-- — I’m sorry, but I’m not seeing very many businesses making huge profits. I’m seeing more and more businesses closing. Did you read what one business owner said: “With all of the costs associated with operations, the owner is the first one to go without a paycheck, sometimes for months at a time!?” He’s not alone; this is quite common today. Stop looking at it as “us” against “them” and start concentrating on all “our” kids’ futures!

It’s funny how you say that people ignorantly state that an ARs’ only function is to kill people, when really, the purpose and function of any firearm is to threaten and kill people. I doubt the Chinese invented firearms over 1,300 years ago for any other purpose than that. They certainly didn’t invent it for the sole purpose of skeet shooting and competitions.

Under Obamacare, you will pay a tax for not having insurance. Back in the good ol’ days if you didn’t have health insurance, you were not taxed. What else will I be taxed for not having?

Great idea ... minimum wage $9 per hour. Get ready for everything to go up even more. So in the long run, nothing changes.

Seniors, be cautious on people calling to get you to buy Medicare.

Quit littering and act like adults! I’ve seen 2-year-olds pick up after themselves and whine less! Get over it and quit being so nasty! What do your homes look like?! Wrong focus - look in the mirror and clean it with some freaking Windex!

I didn’t realize Valdosta had so many people on the Senate Arms Committee to know exactly what the president said or did in a given situation. Where do you receive your intelligence debrief, oh I know....Fox News?

“The size of your paycheck shouldn’t determine your child’s future,” Obama told about 600 teachers and parents. So fund his free preschool increase by reducing government salaries and benefits. Obama said, “paycheck size shouldn’t determine a child’s future.” So make themselves less rich to help the poor. Then, will all that are Democrats remain so?

I recently had surgery at SGMC and to my pleasant surprise I received a card in the mail from a wonderful team of nurses. So a rave out to Barbara, Melody, Gwanda, Mandy and Kim for their great care and attention given that day and every day. Thank you and keep up your good daily works caring for your patients.

    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.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!
