Rants & Raves for Tuesday, December 3, 2013

VALDOSTA — I think it is horrible that Lowndes High coaches practiced on Thanksgiving. These children needed to spend time with their families. One missed  practice would not have mattered in the playoffs. Coaches need to think about the families.

I am really getting sick and tired of Leonard Pitts and his commentaries  being in the paper. He is a racist and I am getting sick and tired of his comments.

In regards to the ranter about  the  high cost of vet bills, If you can’t afford your pet, get rid of it. The last thing we need is a liberal running their mouths telling  people  what to charge to run our private businesses and what prices to charge. That is the problem with the country now: a bunch of liberals telling everybody what they can charge for their businesses and services.

It should be illegal to have any snake as a pet, such as a python or boa. They eat animals, will eat kids and next you!

Posing for your own cell camera and trying to look sexy, just is not working. It's funny for the rest of us viewers online.

Have you taken the time to look for providers under the Obamacare plan offered in this area. Good luck, there are hardly any, check out the list or lack thereof. What a great plan this is!

I almost hit a man in one of those electric wheelchairs on Ashley Street He wheeled out fast facing me, taking half the lane. He and I both were lucky no one was in the lane beside me but sometimes you can't move over. Why are these people not ticketed? I see them all over the place and nothing is done, even though cops pass by. You may feel sympathy for them but it will be a lot more if they are hit. They are probably hoping someone will so they can try to sue. Please stop them from driving on our streets before someone is killed.

    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!

    It’s a shame to work for someone who gripes all the time. Never a “How are you” or “Thanks for your hard work!”

    I think that all facilities owned by the city and county should have signs banning firearms in the buildings. I don’t feel safe if a firearm is there when I am there.
