Rant & Raves for Friday, November 16, 2012

VALDOSTA — I want to thank the person in a white PT Cruiser at Bojangles on Tuesday for paying for my lunch. I will pay it forward. Thank you again.

I would like to take a moment to rave about the owner/operator of Chick-Fil-A on St. Augustine Road, Charlie Crews. In the year and a half I’ve been eating there, I can tell you he is a man of honor, character, and integrity. He loves the Lord and it is very evident in how he runs his business and he has certainly earned my respect.

We can order anything on the menu including a kid’s meal if that is all we want to eat. You cannot be forced to order a meal that is more than what you want to eat or can afford. Be thankful that you have customers because without them you wouldn’t have a job.

After the past years of voter fraud, lack of ID support for voter identification, military members votes not being counted or allowed. Seems to me that this voting procedure is in the immediate need for change.

In regards to the ranter about kid’s meals, a lot of people don’t order full-size meals because it is just too much. That is the reason we have so many overweight  people in America because the meals are portioned to the biggest. It is not because we are cheap.

To the poster who said people who order off the kid’s meal are cheap, did you ever stop to consider that some of us struggle with weight issues and are trying to avoid the temptation afforded by the oversize portions in many restaurants?

Those who are dissatisfied about the way tithes are used and you think the pastors are living lavish lifestyles, that pastor will have to answer to God. The tithes are to be used for the church’s needs such as missions, expenses of the church and the needs of others. Meet with church officials, ask questions and don’t assume.

    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!
