Rant & Rave for Friday, Oct. 12, 2012

-- — Really, luck or skill is what you think it came down to in the football game. Last year it was an offside kick and this year a field goal. Who really cares how the team scored? You have poor sportsmanship. There are more important things in life than luck or skill at a football game! Get a life. Both teams always play their best.

I have found absolutely nothing wrong with the smart meters.


With all the pros/cons on public and private schools, I have experienced both with my child. I removed him from public school so he would have better influences in private school. Little did I know 75 percent of the kids in the private high school where he went to were troubled teens. They were not the "goody two shoe rich kids." They were normal every day "public" school kids in a different environment.

Clay Dorminy at Piggly Wiggly in Adel is the best! He ordered and stocked an item for my mother that even WalMart doesn't carry! Thanks!

Our "smart meter" has been in use for a while now. We have no problems.

Screaming kids at the doctors’ offices are the result of not being able to discipline your children in public because people call the law. Children are running all over parents nowadays. You wouldn't have any of this non-sense 20 years ago.

It is against GHSA rules for a band to play during live play. LHS gets called because they are breaking a rule. The coach tells them to do this. Great sportsmanship, Coach!

I would vote for a new library to replace the antiquated old one. I would vote against a new city auditorium: we already have a relatively new civic center. Why not let each project stand alone in a SPLOST vote for only one year, then move on to the next project for one year? Lumping all the projects together results in my "no" vote.

    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!

    It’s a shame to work for someone who gripes all the time. Never a “How are you” or “Thanks for your hard work!”
