Rants & Raves for Thursday, November 14, 2013

-- — You may have experience taking care of elderly people, but you also have experience stealing their credit cards and checks. You might not think that we remember, but we do. People, please check with the Nashville Police Department and the Valdosta Police Department to see if your newly hired sitter/nurse's aide has a criminal record.

You people are so funny. If you don't like Fox News, then don't watch it. Maybe give Al Jazeera a shot.

Kids who are bullies at school won't be punished because the school is afraid of a lawsuit by the bullies' parents. Is that a good reason not to punish somebody? Absolutely not, but that's the world we live in nowadays. It seems like the people who commit the crimes have more rights than the victims. That is so sad.

I am one of the millions that is losing his insurance because of Obamacare, and I promise you it is not a "subpar" insurance plan as the president likes to say. When I did get through on the Obamacare website, an identical plan (again my plan was not subpar or why would there be a similar plan on the website?) had a 50 percent increase in premium. Obama has lied again and again, this will kill the private insurance market and Obama will get what he wanted, single payer.

Why should we rely on spell check to make sure that we've spelled a word correctly? What did people do before computers? We're relying too much on these machines to do the thinking for us. Use your brain, people.

I don't like the idea of having somebody pay for my meal. Especially someone that is a complete stranger. What are they wanting in return? It's a nice gesture, but I would say, "Thanks, but no thanks." Too many "disturbed" people out in society today for me to allow something like that to happen to me.

    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.
