Rant & Raves for Thursday, June 13, 2013

VALDOSTA — The tropical storm brought much-needed rain. It was less violent than the thunderstorms we usually had, so we needed no warning calls.

Excuse me for blowing my horn at you for not going when the light turned green. How rude of me not to let you finish playing on your phone. I suppose I deserved having you flip me the bird? Next time I will take a picture of your tag and call VPD.

Thank you to the wonderful staff at Red Lobster. Our vehicle and several more were involved in an accident in their parking lot Saturday night. The staff brought out trays of water to the families and emergency personnel and kept checking to see if we needed anything. Huge rave to the staff and emergency personnel that respond to our needs.

A very big rave for the lady with the Berrien County tag, who rescued the kitten on a very busy street on Friday. My sister and I were right behind you; thank you for saving the kitten's life.

Bad driving is not the police department or DMV's fault. It's the discourteous individual who cares only about themselves and not other drivers. It's the one who screams about "speedsters" and yet veers over the lane almost hitting the vehicle next to them. Simple courtesy would go a long way here.

The City of Valdosta needs another cable company! Competition is a great thing.

Getting VA disability is not as easy as you think! Maybe you should go to war, risk your life every second for your country, not be appreciated and come back pieced together. That is, if you make it back. More people are on welfare that shouldn't be so gripe about that, which really should be the complaint.

    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!
