Rant & Rave for Tuesday, April 29, 2014

-- — Please raise taxes so we can clean up our waste! If we want jobs, we need infrastructure. No business is going to locate where there are sewage spills everywhere. Loving your neighbor means helping out. It means helping to pay for services we all need. It means don’t hurt our neighbors down river.

Don’t hurt Lowndes and Lake Park by rezoning. Please.

After researching the school and community, we decided to move to Lake Park instead of living in another part of Lowndes County. Now our beautiful residential community is threatened with three two-story apartment buildings on a little over five acres. Lake Park City Council, please do no rezone this area!

If you go to church, get there on time! No excuses!

Let’s outlaw guns. Makes sense. Next thugs (will) be using knives, ice picks and anything else you can kill with. They might even use guns illegal. I don’t think a criminal would do that. Usually law-abiding citizens.

Thank you to Rev. Lyons at Francis Lake Baptist Church for not only caring about your congregation, but our entire community as well.

After dealing with Valdosta traffic for four  years, we gladly moved away to Atlanta to get away from it!

I do not need to attend church to read about God, I only need read the rants. God dislikes health care, abortion, poor people, welfare, LGBT and marijuana. God loves guns, war, rich people self-proclaimed Christians and politicians.

God wants everyone in Georgia to carry a firearm to church, that is why self-proclaimed Christian politicians should continue passing laws in Georgia. They know what God wants.  

As I watch local TV out of Tallahassee, I think how nice it must be, Tallahassee always having free outside concerts and festivals. Then I look over at Valdosta’s leaders, boring!

    Estimated that 10 percent of the U.S. population are career crooks, caught and not caught. Crime is the most logical career choice, all things considered. Because our governments (politicians) and their cronies have jiggled all systems to promote crime. That’s how 10 percent puts such fear in 90 percent. Causing great expense in security and causing the great self-defense gun debate.

    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!
