Rants & Raves for Thursday, September 12, 2013

VALDOSTA — Don't take it for granted you won't be hit by a car when you are walking and texting or talking on your cell. Get into reality before you can't anymore. Also, yard workers should stay off the road when traffic is coming.

What happened to the Brooks County Band? The little band with the big sound is not the little band with no sound. No playing during the game, no uniforms, no marching at half time. What happened?

I would think we had enough tax revenue to pave our streets in gold and have carousels and fountains in every park. City and state directors, supervisors, and managers are making high enough salaries to live in mansions. I believe we're doing great.

Your church may be quiet, but the one we attend is loud with celebration of the Lord.

To the person complaining about those who take advantage of programs that they don't need, I suggest that you MYOB. As one who has experienced having much, to now, having very little; I can say that you don't know a person's story by just looking. Those expensive possessions were bought during the "good times.” Now that tragedy has come to stay, these things remain. They do not reflect the true nature of one's plight. Try being a real Christian and be quiet!

So people really can find anything to complain about. Sitting in the bar of a restaurant is far from peaceful and relaxing. My spouse, child and I often sit in a booth in the bar area because my child loves watching sports. We would never sit him at the bar but at times, we do ask to sit in the area. And I can assure you, you're more disturbing to us than my child is to you.

    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!”
