Rants & Raves for Friday, September 13, 2013

VALDOSTA — Thank you Mr. President for your help in the Syria crisis. It was a close call. Again thank you, President Putin.

As long as certain programs are using my tax money, it is my business. You want to keep your business your own? Get a job.

If the ranter is so broke and having such a hard time, then sell your nice things you bought before the hard, instead of mooching off the government.

Wear white if you so desire, after Labor Day! Anything goes and that is such a stupid saying.

The freeloaders still don’t get it. I am minding my own business when I rant about those who take unneeded advantages of assistance programs. It is my business because it is my tax money on those EBT cards. Again, those who genuinely need it are not the targets of my rants.

Try being a “real” man with a real man’s job instead of wanting one where you can sit, talk, and walk around flirting.

My, my, my. The ones rattling their tongues have forgotten all the rattling skeletons in their own families’ closets.

Two lane roads and traffic lights is what kills the flow of traffic in this town. Does no one else see that?

In response to the person defending their expensive possessions acquired during the “good times,” I can only say that because you pointed out that you are a Christian it may be worth listening to a Christian financial advisor like Dave Ramsey. His biblical interpretation of how to use wealth may have kept you from landing on hard times. It is best to live well below your means and save for those rainy days, rather than spend all your wealth on extravagant and unnecessary possessions.

To the ranter stating, “Try being a real Christian and be quiet!” Charity is the job of a Christian, not the government. However, today’s society is conditioned to think the opposite and you just proved it.

The patient recovery hallway in the outpatient surgery center is not an appropriate place for community social hour. There are designated waiting areas for casual socialization.

Note to music directors: trying to make your prayers into a song during the church service is annoying. Please just pray and move onto the music instead of dragging out the prayers over the life of a song!

    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!”
