Rant and Raves for Thursday, September 27

VALDOSTA — To the person complaining about a parade that has been going on for years: move! It happens every year. In such a small town, you would think people would be happy to see a parade every now and then.

If President Obama is elected for a second term in November, will he blame the economic mess this country is in on himself?

So, why does the Sheriff's Office have a traffic unit? I have seen more fatal accidents in the last five months than ever it seems. What are we using the money for?

To the person on Berkley Drive complaining about pets getting hit and killed: Here is a novel idea, keep your pet in the house or at the very least out of the street.

To the person with pulmonary arterial hypertension, an invisible disease. Your privilege is being ruined by people who deliver the handicapped person to the door while parked in the fire lane, then park in the handicap spot. Or the handicapped person who parks in "their" spot then sits in the car while the healthy companion does the shopping.

Enough of the fundraisers already. Schools have cookie dough fund-raisers, then a Promoting Family Health and Fitness in their gym. What's wrong with this picture?

Perhaps the schools should not have Pajama Day. Maybe this is what leads people to think they should wear their old, faded, ragged, dirty pajamas in public. Yuck!

Huge rave to Kevin from Valdosta Pest Control. He’s a super nice guy who   really cares about his work. Always goes above and beyond. Thank You!

All these 'shake and bake' truck driving schools are the reason you have rude, inconsiderate and inexperienced truck trivers on the interstate.

Most all of us can comment on the bad referee calls made by the fill-in refs over the weekend. It is saturated with TV coverage. How many of us can tell you anything about the troops killed over the weekend defending our country?

To the guy in the Blue Audi on Antioch Church Road: I have your tag number. The next time you will be reported for trespassing.

I really enjoyed volunteering at Westside Elementary's Book Fair. All of the students were very polite and used their manners. I am glad our children attend this school!

A huge rave to all the bands that performed at the Southern Open. Your hard work and dedication shows!

    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!”
