Rant & Rave for Monday, May 26, 2014

VALDOSTA — Please remember to not lock your pets in a vehicle without lowering your vehicle windows. The temperature is hot outside. A closed vehicle temperature can rise very quickly. This can be very dangerous or even deadly to your pet. I saw a pet owner go into a store yesterday and leave her dog in the car with all windows shut tightly. This also applies to your children. They are priceless also.

Believing in God because it is “safe” is not believing. It’s akin to lying to your parents so you don’t get in trouble, but they really know the truth. You’re only lying to yourself if you don’t have true faith.

Once again the pundits against global warming toss out wishful falsehoods and present them as scientific fact. The Ice Sheet has not been melting for “centuries” and drastic rise in sea level won’t be put off to the year 3000. Bad science mixed with political motives will kill people.

Explain the logic? Three  out of  four right-hand turning lanes at Bemiss/Perimeter. The right lane was stuck behind one car going straight, myself and next eight cars turned right, common sense anyone? Eight cars that could have turned right on red!

Alas! Those people complaining about being forced to watch Fox News in waiting rooms are undoubtedly the very ones who need to be watching, listening, and learning.

So, you want our neighbors to fear the USA? Strange ideology and not dissimilar to the mindset in Germany from 1933-1945. You see where it got them?

I am offended by the tripe and offal offered at Fox News in the same manner that watching leading German politicians from a past era give hate speeches.

Real men drive a Ford F-150, carry a Smith & Wesson, watch Fox News, don’t believe in global warming, and don’t take lip from womenfolk. We’re proud Americans.

    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.
