Rant & Rave for Tuesday, June 18, 2013

-- — I am a student at Valdosta State University, I pay thousands of dollars in tuition, but I am not allowed to use the Student Recreation Center because I am not taking summer classes. I was told that I have to pay $45 to use the Rec Center during the summer. As if I don't pay enough already... Utterly ridiculous.

I don't use Deep South, but if others want to, they should be able to choose. This is the same way they do in communist countries, no freedom of choice.

Will the Times please research and find out who are the REAL owners and partners in the Advance Disposal? There is underhanded connections that should be brought forward.

How about instead of complaining about people on welfare and food stamps, just be grateful that you aren't? Be grateful that you don't have to be humiliated and judged by a bunch of hateful people who've never been in an unfortunate financial situation. That's what I do.

It used to be a rule that those who don't work, don't eat. I miss that kind of mentality!

To the smokers of Valdosta, please do me a favor and don't come sit on the benches at VMS and smoke your cigarette while I am trying to exercise. Have some courtesy and go smoke in your car away from the people who are trying to stay healthy!

While I don't agree with sending someone out of state for training; however...defintely need to leave Valdosta for "fresh" ideas!

I'm a married college student who works in a restaurant. My wife and I have cheap phones. On months when our paychecks aren't high, we stock up on ramen. I'm saddened that my hard earned money is being given to someone who actually thinks he is justified to have an Iphone and still take from the government.

    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!
