Rant & Raves

VALDOSTA — If Fox News has more viewers than all of the other news channels, wouldn’t that make Fox News the mainstream media?

Sounds like your doctor’s office is the ignorant one. So because your doctor’s office doesn't accept your insurance, that means that “no doctor in town will accept Obamacare”? Like I said, that’s a blatant lie.

I would like to say a huge  thank you to nurses Whitney and Tiffany at South Georgia Medical Center on the PEDs floor for taking such amazing care of my little girl while she was there for four days. They went over and beyond and my daughter loved them! Happy Nurses Week!

I think the “Pray For Our Nation” signs in someone’s yard is to show everyone how Christian they are. If you are, you don’t need to constantly pat yourself on the back, just live as God would want you to.

Church solicitation should be only by mail if you must. Boy, how they love to visit and get into your business.

To all the folks who think it takes a village to raise a child, maybe you should reconsider having one.

Thank you to the three Lake Park City Council members that listened to the people and voted to deny rezoning!

I love to hear little Southern ladies and gentlemen say, yes ma’am. I do not love it when someone older than myself says it to me.

I resent the rant which stated that only short men feel the need to carry a loaded firearm. John Wayne was six foot, four inches; James Arness was six foot, six inches; Chuck Conners, six foot, five inches; and Clint Eastwood is six foot, four inches. Randolph Scott was only six foot, two inches, and Gary Cooper, six foot, three inches.

    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!”
