Rant & Rave for Monday, April 29, 2013

-- — The handicap tag on your vehicles is for your wife not for you. Try to remember this and be grateful that you don’t need it.

If a parent doesn’t show a child who’s the boss, wait until they get in teen years and see how funny it is when they won’t listen.


Lowndes County can’t expect to get valid evaluations from the system surveys if you are asking teachers to go through their email.

For those who think the majority of Americans want more gun control, here’s a direct quote from the Gallup Poll: “Americans say that government leaders should focus on school safety and mental health rather than on gun control to prevent school shootings.” By the way, that’s two-thirds of Americans. Stop listening to the government that is using targeted polls, do your own research and use national polls.

To mommy and daddy whose son couldn’t give 100 percent because they didn’t admire or respect the coach, I’m sure he will find better role models once he signs with the Division 1 program of his or your choice.

To treat head lice all you need is olive oil, Dawn dishwashing liquid and conditioner of your choice. Put the olive oil on hair long enough to smother the lice. Wash hair with Dawn and then use conditioner. You do have to wash clothing, bedding and towels or they will get back into the hair. Most people have these items in their homes.

Ranter said, “Apparently people believe it should be easier to obtain a gun than it is to be properly licensed to drive a car.” Both are easy for outlaws and whackos that get guns illegally and steal cars. Large-capacity ammo magazines are linked to far fewer deaths then vehicles with large horsepower. Outlawing powerful autos will reduce far more deaths.

    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.
