Rant & Rave for Tuesday, March 19, 2013

-- — To the highly educated liberal who was spouting off about an uneducated redneck ... Sir/Ma'am, your rant proved just how ignorant you really are! You are neither open-minded or tolerant of others and I would demand a refund for this “education” you paid for. Also, conservatives are not in fear of change.... we are in fear of uninformed, closed-minded people who think they know what’s best for everybody.

Don't you dare tell me what to write in my rant. If I want to write about the sewage, I will. It was a terrible thing our city leaders did to us and the people down stream and they should hand in their resignations for all the violations they made knowingly.

Please, please, somebody tell us whether it's safe to eat the fish that we catch now out of the Withlacoochee River since 45 million gallons of sewage went into it. We need to know now, not in six months. What did the sampling turn up, will we ever know? Is it safe to eat the wild game near the river that feed?

I really wish people would stop referring to any damaging weather-related event as an “act of God.” Why not call it an “act of nature” ? A true “act of God” was Jesus’ sacrificial death on the cross for repentant sinners. All the world's problems are caused by our sins and the curse placed on this world. Jesus paid the price to truly make us free if we choose him.

The Georgia Republican website says they stand for lower taxes and less government, yet Georgia Republican politicians invented and promoted the failed T-SPLOST and the home grown Municipal Optional Sales Tax, which is floundering due to blow back. Our Republican tax problem stems from the converted Democrats who converted in “name only” and are better known as RINOs. If the Republicans take over the “tax and spend” position, what will the Democrats stand for?

    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!

    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!”
