Rant & Rave for Tuesday, April 15, 2014

-- — I want to thank Brittney who has been my family’s favorite waitress at Cheddar’s since they opened their doors. Saturday night was no exception. She never lost her composure while I witnessed some crude treatment from the customers seated near us. Keep your head up.

Give it up, VDT. It doesn’t matter if the city leadership changes. They’ll never be punished. They all have golden parachutes worth hundreds of thousands when they retire.

Lowndes County leaders: Please reopen the recycling centers, at least two, one north and one south. The place is being “pitted out,” looks like a rubbish pile.

Big rave to Elliano’s. Best coffee in town and the employees are always friendly and thanks guys!

When will they start spraying for mosquitoes? There is a pond across from Dewar School near Carter Oaks Estate and the mosquitoes are nearly the size of the palm of the hand. Please help us.

It is time there are changes of bosses in the utilities department  because of the way they have treated the water problems in the city.

Congratulations to the Valdosta Times for the investigation in the sewage problems. More investigations are needed to come forward because our tax dollars are not being spent wisely by administrators and city officials.

That’s a pretty neat trick. Don’t look for leaks, don’t see them, don’t have to report them, no EPD fines anyway, nobody cares about the sewage at all. Oh, but I hear there’s another protest about the natural gas line like the one we’ve had for 50 years that’s never been an issue. Environmentalists? Ha. Frauds.

Why have our state elected officials not said anything about the sewage spills? Can they not read the newspaper? Or just too busy acting like they matter.

Gun supporters: Please tell me why you want to arm the multitudes of the mentally ill in America? Don’t let the NRA and weapons makers trick you. A background check is a sensible option rather than practically giving lethal firearms to those who will use them to kill innocents. Don’t children have a right to grow up too?

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    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.
