Rant & Rave for Monday, June 9, 2014

--- — You righties knew this soldier had walked away from his base, yet you posted on Facebook that his government has abandoned him. Now that he’s free, you want to send him back. You already knew he deserted. Hypocrites.

Every time I attend a production by our local Theatre Guild or hear the Valdosta Symphony Orchestra or the groups that perform at the lunchtime concerts on the courthouse lawn or the many other local performers, I am amazed how much talent there is in our community. Saturday night at the Rainwater Center was no exception at the Turner Arts “American Soundtrack” show. It was amazing — a Las Vegas, New York or cruise ship-style show right here in our town. A wonderful evening. Folks, I tell you, it equaled anything you will see anywhere.

To the person that said Lowndes County needs another high school, instead of spending more taxpayers dollars, LCS/LHS needs to release all of the students that do not reside in that district first and then take it from there. That is something that should be done.

Fox News is calling for U.S. intervention in Syria and the Ukraine. Overweight gun nut-cases are running around with assault rifles building up their self esteem. Let’s send them overseas and solve this problem once and for all.

Some so-called Christians seem to express their faith with viciousness, malice, and hatred toward the same people that Jesus died for. They seem to take joy in the concept of other people condemned to perdition. Enjoy your roast beef, mashed potatoes and gravy when you dine in paradise.  

I understood the Christian faith was expressed by love, compassion, and gentleness towards other humans, but reading the posts from professed believers towards those who do not share their faith makes me question my concepts. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

    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.

    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.
