Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013

-- — Why anyone would buy or pay a lot for jeans that are ripped or faded, beats me.

HUGE Rave for Patience Lawson for the leadership she provided in organizing the first-ever Jogging with the Generals race event at Georgia Christian School. It was perfectly executed! If you missed it, plan to participate next year!


Speaking of 'sidestepping' Where are those ‘Fast and Furious’ guns and when was the last time the President submitted a budget? If conservatives sidestep, liberals just plain OMIT facts and choose not to focus on anything but taking more rights from the American people while leaving our children with a huge debt! Sooner or later the government is going to run out of other people’s money! Even Honey-boo-boo's family has a budget and financial plan. That should be embarrassing to all who re-elected these idiots for a second term!

Guns don't kill, people kill people; however, how do these people obtain guns? Everyday you either read about or hear about an imbalanced youth plotting to kill with supposedly legal obtained weapons. Why does someone need multiple weapons in their home? Should there be a law whereas if someone is killed by a minor or imbalanced individual, should the owner of the weapon be held liable for not securing the or not?

What was meant by “we only need you this much” is employers will cut hours from all employees while still hiring new people to also work those shorter hours on other shifts. All while keeping the business running. More hires, shorter hours, no huge payroll bump, no health insurance for anyone, business still making a huge profit.

I find it truly amazing that some conservatives not only believe the poppycock spewed forth from Fox News but spread it around without really using reason and logic. Medical insurance and health care costs were sky high long before Obamacare was a possibility. Pardon me, but your ignorance is showing.

All these complaints about Advanced Disposal. My neighborhood has had absolutely no problems in the transfer. Yes I wish at least one dump site on the north side of town had remained open for car oil recycling, etc. but most people here don't adjust to change well.

    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!
