Rant & Rave for Tuesday, July 30, 2013

-- — I would like to know, as an employee of Smith Northview, why our hours are being cut and PTO stopped but yet SGMC can buy a new generator, parking deck, and critical care tower, as well as administration still making their six figures a year while us “low-lifes” are barely making ends meet? Looks like to me someone doesn’t have their financial priorities straight!!

Whether you or your business can donate money, whether you do mind or don’t mind displaying literature from a “solicitor,” just please be upfront. I witnessed someone tell a couple young girls to come back later that day, knowing he wasn’t going to be in the office when they returned. I then listened to him tell someone that he would be more than happy to display his brochures and promptly threw them in the trash after the gentleman walked out.

Not all churches in Valdosta are gossiping, scandal-loving establishments. And not all people who live in Valdosta love drama.

Someone with the county needs to look at the new  judicial administration building downtown. The roof looks terrible and I think it is only a couple of years old. Did they get gypped? Does it need cleaning or is it improperly installed or just poor building material?  

What’s up with the Georgia no call list? I thought if you are on this list, it is illegal for solicitors to call you. I don’t know if it is enforced.  Am I the only person getting bombarded with these calls?

Don’t get a pet if you cannot give it the care and love it needs. You are their family and heart, they depend on you to keep them safe. All they ask for is love and food in return, not to dump them or give them away when you don’t have time anymore.

    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.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!
