Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2012

-- — A school should be organized in planning enough so that picture day won’t be on pajama day. Ridiculous.

When a school competes to be the “best,” it takes away time from the teachers and students in classroom learning. When you have constant school socials for parents and grandparents, it takes so much away from the classroom time. Our children need all the learning they can absorb, not fun socials.

A huge shout out to Georgia Power.  When we had that huge storm to blow through on Thursday, those guys were out and had the power back up in no time at all. I can speak for everyone in Valdosta. Thank you! And thank you for everything you do to keep the power up and running! Thanks again!

Bicycles do not have any place on the roads after dark. If they are not going to wear protective wear, reflective gear and lights on bicycles, they should be banned on the roads. It is very dangerous. Our elected officials need to consider having an ordinance.

Truck drivers are some of the worst drivers on the interstate and they used to be the best. What happened?

Have you read the book about the Cedartown football team? It is a history book that includes the 1941 state championship between Cedartown and Valdosta. It was written by an amateur writer and isn’t getting any statewide attention. It isn’t hard to find; just google the Cedartown High School Bulldogs.

Don’t get upset when you see old people working, get upset when you see young people on welfare.

The truth! If one doesn’t want to learn, nothing can help him. If one is determined to learn, nothing can stop him.

Nice to see that Valdosta Wildcat coach Gillespie can give the newspaper an interview after a win. Do it after a loss, too, coach!

    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!”
