Rant & Rave for Monday, Dec. 9, 2013

-- — Dogs have killed people also. Does that mean they should be illegal as pets? The problem is the person keeping the pet and not properly educating themselves on the pets care needs. But, of course, there are always those who jump to the most simple fix which may not always be the best fix.

You don't like columns written by Leonard Pitts? Guess what? Ignore his column, just as I skip the writings by hypocrites like Star Parker and Cal Thomas. From my point of view Leonard Pitts is right on target with his insightful analyses of daily events, telling it as it is.

I’m very pleased with the judge’s decision in favor of Deep South Sanitation. It would be in poor character for the county to appeal. We should start replacing those commissioners responsible next election.

Doctors seem to care and try hard when they first get in practice but after they have their patients enough to support their money-loving wives, all that goes. Then it is to just push us through like a herd of cattle. CHA-CHING!

I am not a senior citizen but I know several who are that love animals. It helps to have one for your blood pressure, companionship, and a lot of things. Vet care is important for animals, as it is for humans to have physician care. Vets over charge because they know we love our pets like a baby. Animals give so much love but no one should have one if they can’t afford to keep it safe and healthy.

This is disgusting. Talk of raising Tricare premiums, doing away with commissaries ... these are my entitlements for serving my country for 20 years. I hear nothing about those that check out ahead of me with a full cart using an EBT card, or getting free government housing with my tax dollars. They aren’t entitlements if you haven’t earned them so take those perks for those that choose not to work away.

    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.
