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.

    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!

    Chaining a dog 24/7 is nothing short of animal cruelty. It is time for our elected officials to pass a law against it.
