Rant & Rave for Monday, April 28, 2014

-- — To the ranter that said we do not need Christians making laws in Georgia. Are you going to spend eternity in smoking or non-smoking? It sounds like you have chosen smoking!

So who stands to profit from this “guns everywhere” bill? IRA, check; gun manufacturers, check; increase of illegal gun sales, check; people who think they’re safer, no check. If you think everyone will be carrying legal registered weapons, please climb from under that rock!

We certainly don’t need chuckleheads from Rant & Rave flying planes over Georgia.

When the Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee that “all vets are mentally ill in some way, and the government should prevent them from owning firearms,” is there a Democrat out there that has served in the military who disagrees with her? Thanks for your service!! Right?

What’s the worst way to harm the economy and jobs in Lake Park? Build low-income housing in an established residential area that starts a trend in the community.

I am so appreciative of our Christian lawmakers in Georgia and this United States; the problem is that we have elected some who do not believe in our Christian ways, and are passing laws that allow abortion on demand, legalizing marijuana, opening up the prison doors and turning loose the criminals, taxing the ones who work to give to those who won’t, destroying our health-care system, down-sizing our military and making us the laughing stock of the world. I don’t think God would approve. ...

Thank you, Greater Lowndes County Zoning Commission, for voting unanimously to deny rezoning of the area in Lake Park. Come on, Lake Park City Council and mayor, it’s time for you to do the right thing too!

Red light after red light. No wonder the flow of traffic in this town is so bad. When you do get a green light you are lucky if five cars can make it through before having to sit at a two-minute red light. Come on, City of Valdosta, wake up already.

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    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.
