Rant & Rave for Friday, March 3, 2013

-- — People who are in the mental health business should be extra skilled in how to treat fellow human beings, and this includes their own employees. Treat others as you would want to be treated.

Parents, please check the weather before sending your children to school. It is not warm enough for them to wear summer clothes! Save the shorts, skirts and summer tops for April.

The Vatican should look to the west to solve their dilemma. For the first time in 600 years, they will have two living Popes and are in a panic at all the conflict this will produce. Today in the USA, we have five living Presidents but only one has the keys to the White House.

I really don't know that I like the police ticketing those asking for money. I understand that many of them probably have money and are just scamming people but there are others who really do need help. I also understand they could go to LAMP and other places for help and they should. But is it necessary to ticket them? Can't you just stop and tell them to move on and tell them about LAMP, Goodwill, etc.?

Since I often see rants about teachers not returning parent e-mails and messages, can I say how disappointing it is as a teacher when I try to get information out to parents and you don't respond to my e-mails? Parents please make certain the school has your current e-mail address, and please respond when I send you information about your child's progress.

I do not own an AR-15, but I insist on having access to one so I have the same fire power as the bad guys. Also, the elites in Washington are protected by these weapons, so the family of every citizen deserves the same protection.

    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.

    Just announced in Atlanta that Valdosta came in first in the state for percent decrease in population for year 2013. Albany was No. 4. Do you suppose the City School System demographics have anything to do with this. City folks may not think consolidation was so stupid when we start playing in region A.
