Rant & Rave for Friday, April 11, 2014

VALDOSTA — It wasn’t  Remerton where  the rats were escaping to Azalea Drive, it was  from the raw sewage. At least  they are smarter than people.

Congratulations to Crestwood Nursing Home on your  five star rating. You are the best. Thank  you for taking care of my loved one. Your caring staff is just  wonderful.

A Rant for our Chamber. Why does Tifton have a Joann’s Fabric and Craft store and Valdosta that is much bigger and populated not have any? You have to go to Tallahassee or Albany. There should be a Joann’s or Hancocks in Valdosta. We have a lot of sewers and crafters and we don’t always have what is needed. Let’s keep our money in town and fix this problem.

Congressional Republicans have blocked bills entitling women to equal pay, tighter restrictions and background checks on gun ownership, want to pass a budget that cuts from veterans health benefits, and the Supreme Court rules in favor of the wealthy owning Washington. What is wrong with our country!?

One thousand thanks go to Brittany for a column she had a few weeks ago. Her article was about runny noses.  I have tried probably a zillion different “remedies” for runny noses and watery eyes. None of them worked as well as her recombination for ChlorTabs nor were any of them as inexpensive. These pills coupled with the tea and local honey combination have pretty much saved my life. Thanks, Brittany.

Question for lethal firearm advocates: If carrying semi-automatic handguns (concealed) makes you feel safe, would concealed hand grenades make you feel safer?

There has been a lot of references by the gun lobby regarding the Swiss. Please research the actual facts before you post, don't trust NRA, Fox News, or Rush Limbaugh sources, they are inaccurate. I happen to be Swiss and know something about this.

    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!”

    I think that all facilities owned by the city and county should have signs banning firearms in the buildings. I don’t feel safe if a firearm is there when I am there.

    There are some wealthy physicians, business owners in this town who target only certain demographics for their business, and reject competition and growth. With the new statistics of a shrinking Valdosta, I hope you and your selfishness are quite happy when your comfort zone disappears!
