Rant & Rave for Friday, April 26, 2013

-- — The ranter who believes every criticism of Barack Obama is racially motivated should be ashamed. He draws criticism because he is an epic failure, dishonest and corrupt. If you apply the measures all presidents are judged by, he has not had a single success. Even as the junior senator from Illinois, more often than not, he failed to show up and cast a vote on behalf of his constituents. Please arm yourself with facts and objectivity and don’t be so quick to cry racism where none exists.

LHS football outscored the same non-region opponents on their 2013 schedule 176-23 last season. Will this get them ready for the playoffs or for the region for that matter?

To the person who thinks we aren’t happy because our President isn’t the same color as we are. It doesn’t make any difference if he is pink, purple or polka-dotted to me. Poor leadership stinks no matter what color.

There’s a horrible case of head lice going around in the school districts lately! A general note was sent home asking parents to check their children; lo and behold, our kids had them. Had them, we’ve treated our kids twice, but they are re-infected again because other kids in class aren’t receiving treatment. Nurses, can you please inspect each kid for head lice and if found, send those parents a note to treat their children before sending them back to class? This is getting costly!

Where are the DOT workers that are supposed to be picking up the illegal signs. There are several on west Highway 84 and none have a DOT sticker on the back. Guess the law does not apply to everyone.

Parents need to understand that their children are not perfect. They do make mistakes and that’s just part of growing up. We all like to think that our kids are faultless but the truth is they aren’t. Some kids are good at hiding their defects so parents have a false sense when it comes to their kids behavior. Other parents just don’t want to face reality. No matter what, children are a blessing from God. Love them lots!

Please adjust the traffic light at Green Meadow and Country Club to accommodate all the cars backing up from the detour off Eager Road.

I try to be open minded. I tune into CNN, MSNBC, FOX and even The Blaze channel with Glen Beck, but so much doom and gloom from the latter it’s like watching Alfred Hitchcock ending of sorrow vs. Andy Griffith happy endings.

    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!”

    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.
