Rants & Raves for Friday, November 8, 2013

VALDOSTA — To the man, and I mean Man, that bought my daughter and my meal at ChowTown on Saturday, thank you so much, it was a surprise and flattering act of kindness. We will be back there the first Saturday in December, so maybe we can buy you a meal.

Got the flyer recently in mail about all the city/counties phone numbers. Did no one notice that in Lanier, Cook, Brooks, and Berrien's text, that "Education" is misspelled. How embarrassing to see "Board of Eduction" erroneously repeated that many times. What happened to spell check?

Someone explain to me why a restaurant has to have a food permit, but a church can sell food at their fall festival without one? What is the difference? It seems that religious themed businesses need to either lose the tax exempt status, or stop making money off their members. Jesus didn't sell fish and loaves.

I am reminded of Ronald Reagan every time I view today's America. We were in a bad economy, no one was proud to be an American, our government could not protect a foreign (middle eastern) embassy, we had a new government plan-Department of Energy, and the media said the Republican party was dead. So, to the person who said Reagan could not win the primary: I do not see a Reagan anywhere, in either party, today, unfortunately for America.

If you are talking on your cell phone while driving, at least slow down when going around curves so you can stay on your side of the road.

Can someone help, please. The two flags flying on the east side of the 600 block of North Ashley Street are both badly faded with one split into rags. This is a disgrace to everyone in the USA. Both need to be removed or replaced.

    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!”
