Rant & Rave for Monday, May 6, 2013

-- — I hope Al Sharpton finds time to visit the mother in Brunswick whose baby was shot point blank in the forehead while in his baby stroller. Perhaps the reverend could also counsel the angry young black man who pulled the trigger. Oh wait, the baby was white. Never mind.

The VPD should provide mugshots of everyone arrested to the VDT to be published daily. This is becoming very common in other metro cities.

It's official. Kendrick Johnson’s' death was accidental. Let it be. I'm sorry for the family and their loss, but what is it that they want?

It is OK to disagree with our president, it is the way you disagree with him.  You know what I am talking  about.

With 450 members, the Bridgemen couldn't find one boy worthy of being drum major? What are you teaching those boys? Not any leadership skills.

Amazing: Tim Tebow is regularly criticized for demonstrating his Christian faith: Then Michael Collins is termed a hero for coming out as gay. Obama even calls him with congratulations. I do not think God will continue to bless our country if we continue to thumb our noses at Him!

Sorry for your lack of Christian kindness. Presidents of all stripes have spoken out on social issues. Their job is to be socially aware and to not wage senseless wars on foreign governments.

My heart goes out to the Johnson family. I am not sure what exactly happened; it could have been accidental or it may not have been. I do know that people don't understand what a body may look like when blood rushes to the head and then stays there for hours. He wasn't going to look like he merely fell asleep, as you may hope and assume.

Why in the world are girls allowed to wear stilettos to VHS? Even worse, some of the staff look like they're ready for a night on the town rather than to educate children. Please do something about the dress code.  We survived without shorts and high heels years ago, the current generation should be able to as well.

Customer service reps, it is rude to remain on the phone while trying to take my payment or handle my problem. If helping another customer over the phone, I am perfectly fine with an "I'll be right with you." However, when you continue your conversation, which is obviously a personal phone call, I find that so rude.

    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!”

    I think that all facilities owned by the city and county should have signs banning firearms in the buildings. I don’t feel safe if a firearm is there when I am there.

    There are some wealthy physicians, business owners in this town who target only certain demographics for their business, and reject competition and growth. With the new statistics of a shrinking Valdosta, I hope you and your selfishness are quite happy when your comfort zone disappears!
