Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2012

-- — Did it occur to you that the ambulance may have just gotten a call while they were behind you?

I recently had a very good experience from Veolia. After my current garbage provider did not pick me or my neighbor’s garbage for three weeks then took my can after I was paid in full through December, Veolia brought me a new can and took the garbage left by the other company. Folks these people do a job most of us would not. Thank you for your prompt service and you have earned my business

I would like to send a huge RAVE to Smith Northview ICU for taking such good care of my mother during her stay there. I would especially like to think Ashli, PCT; Michelle, RN and Bonnie, RN for all that they done for her and for our family. Thanks, ladies!! You are the best!!

Thanks to all the Democrats for joining up with the other states and we came together as a nation to put Barack Obama back into office. Thanks again! Have a blessed day.

Who was the genius engineer who did not put a green arrow turn signal light on the traffic lights at River and St. Augustine so we can turn left onto St. Augustine towards the mall?  Why spend the money to put a turning lane to turn left but no arrow light... the traffic backs up to the Masonic lodge and only one car can get through a light... great minds at work here in Valdosta!

Plenty of people decorate early because they want to start celebrating early and extend the holiday as long as possible. Thanksgiving still takes place and gets its place in the sun, but I think the holidays go hand in hand.

Where does money go made from high school sports? How do you think uniforms, away game transportation, etc. are paid for?

    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!”
