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.

    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!
