Rant & Rave for Tuesday, May 7, 2013

-- — I am a white woman and I am trying to understand what the family of Kendrick Johnson is trying to accomplish. I hate that their son has died and I understand their grief. What I don’t understand is why they seem so sure that he was murdered. Who do they think murdered the young man? ...

To all who use Coleman Road as a short cut between Old Highway 41 North and North Valdosta Road, please remember the speed limit is 35, not 65. Tailgating me isn’t going to make me go faster. Remember, it’s our neighborhoods, not your short cut!

I understand the Johnson family wanting to get answers. I can’t fault them for their protests and gatherings. I don’t

personally think they should hold pictures up for kids to see. And above all, please ask your activists to refrain from turning this into a race issue, if that’s truly how you feel. ...

Sending your child to elementary school wearing a T-shirt with an autopsy photo on it is disgusting!

The sheriff’s excuse for the late coroner notification was that he was out of town. None of his investigators or officers knows the phone number for the coroner? Ever heard “better be safe than sorry?”

Do not allow others to pull out if waiting at a red light or in line. So many wrecks have happened because of this and they shoot out across the road to oncoming traffic. Vision is impaired from other autos and blind spots. Don’t do the favor of causing a wreck because you will be involved then.

Speed bumps are needed at PetSmart to slow autos down. Also, shrubs should be cut lower and more often. Animals get loose and kids run from parents so please drive with caution.

    Here’s an idea. Learn basic math before posting numbers about crime rates. The US has 1 violent crime for every 26 citizens not 1 per 262. Geesh.

    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.
