Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013

-- — What kind of a jerk would want to spoil a family’s wedding reception, simply because it got noisy? Have you ever been to a silent wedding party? This is a once-in-a-lifetime event; meant to be special. So much for good old Southern hospitality!

If you thank the President for standing his ground on Obamacare, then you must be getting your insurance free. All others will pay dearly with high premiums, high deductibles, and a lot out of pocket.

Are you crazy? Sell the Valdosta BOE and stadium to VSU? Uh, can we say, No! VSU can build their own thing. VCS has had the Williams street property since 1921 or 1922. That is history. It does not need to be sold.

Just because you are driving a big RV, does not give you the right to just change lanes or turn into traffic whenever you please. Just because I don’t give in and slam on brakes when you want to get into the right-hand lane while I’m riding in it, doesn’t give you a good reason to lay on your horn and flip me off, like I was the one trying to cut you off!

Wow, the Williams Street sidewalk is enormous. This is a perfect example of wasted tax dollars. Reduce the enormous amount of waste in the budget and remove all wants now. There is no accountability. Vote no on SPLOST!

Why don’t you thank your lucky stars that you were not one of those considered “nonessential”? Those who weren’t allowed to work would have much rather been doing so. I think it’s selfish and rude of you to not want those people to receive pay. If the shoe was on the other foot, would you feel the same way? Highly doubt it.

    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!

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