Rant & Rave for Monday, Feb. 25, 2013

-- — The ranter isn't anti-gun,  actually, I have a weapons license, and surprisingly, it was fairly easy to obtain. We have come a long way but its main purpose still remains.

Fox News telling the truth made me chuckle until I realized that similar opinions were expressed by the tripe produced by Joseph Goebbels who said “Intellectual activity is a danger to the building of character.” Waiting to see an intellectual on Fox News, none sighted.

The warm winter has allowed some strange species to sprout lately. Just this week I spotted a full size mattress growing along side the road. A few doors down there is a dishwasher blossoming in the ditch and for the last month a huge pile of garbage bags has reached maturity just inches from the road. Good to know that Lowndes County has decided to encourage this diversity amongst the azaleas.

To the ranter comparing guns to cars, snakes, & planes: the key words in your rant are "purpose of weapon is to kill the enemy" if someone attacks you, by God they are an enemy.

To the person complaining about the cost to the state and county for the roadblocks. I am sure you can ask any family member who has lost someone to a drunk driver, that no amount of money would cover the loss of their loved one. And to a future family member that was possibly saved due to the DUI arrests, I am sure they would also tell you, yes, it was worth spending that money to get the “drunks” off the road. A drunk is someone who is intoxicated, thus the reason for the DUI. Get real people, lives were possibly saved, that doesn’t even include the wanted criminals and the child restraints. Be happy they were out there trying to save lives and protect our community. I sure am!

    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!”
