Rant & Rave for Tuesday, March 18, 2014

-- — Georgia House Republicans threaten our children’s environment by voting to repeal energy efficient car tax credits while maintaining subsidies on hummers.

Williams Street project was a success. Now one can admire the beautiful homes and landscape and the beauty.  

We’ve gotten 3” of rain in town and more north of town. Let me be the first to notify the geniuses that run the City of Valdosta who are in charge of the WTP sewer plant that it’s a good time to flush the toilet (Plant) and let all of our sewer flow into the swollen Withlacoochee River. Our river is already ruined and Florida’s once beautiful Suwanee River and the Gulf needs some fish food. So let the old and raw go. It won’t make that much difference.

To the owner of the gray dog that wanders the North Creek Circle subdivision in Hahira, please put a collar on your dog and keep him in your yard. It is very annoying to walk outside my house and see your dog pooping in my front yard. Please get your dog before I call the animal shelter.

Sunday at Walmart on Perimeter, people were so nosy to see what was going on during an emergency. The law should start passing out bystander tickets for interfering. The ones that could go through the other door, deliberately went down to the other to stick their nose where it didn’t belong! People are just crazy.

Introduction to Fear Mongering 101. Conservatives maintaining the idea that the missing Malaysian plane is being prepared for a strike against U.S. interests. They are stating that Indonesia and Malaysia are government supported centers of terrorists, which is not true. This is quite typical for right-wingers, long history of this happening usually with dire consequences.

    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.
