Rant & Rave for Friday, Nov. 2, 2012

-- — Why is it that people only complain about what doctors and dentist charge? How about hairdressers, nail salons, cosmetic counters, movie theaters? No one seems to complain about a $100 hair appointment.

If you are looking for a great dentist, go see Dr. Garner. Best dentist office ever! We love Dr. Garner, Renee, Sally and everyone else there.

There are so many Rant and Raves daily that discuss other people's children, yards, driving, eating habits, manners, etc. It would be time more productively spent to be working on self-improvement, instead of concern about everyone else. It is a lot easier and more pleasant to point out the flaws in others than it is to look in the mirror.

Money is the prime motivation in Christian churches today. You most likely will not see the gospel printed in the Sunday bulletin, but you will see something about paying tithes, the church budget, new building fund, or the amount of money collected during last week's service.

If a child has been approved to go to a school other than the school in the area the child resides, why is it a problem for the child to ride the bus that comes to the area? Especially when the bus does not have to go out of the way to pick the child up. The child was approved to go to the school, but is denied transportation to and from school. Valdosta Board of Education, please get it together.

There are rude office staff every where you go. They don't appreciate their jobs anymore and take it for granted. They make friends with the boss, staff, and don't worry of being fired.

Wednesday post: Can anyone recommend a good grief counseling center (or person) here?  Yes. The Better Mood Clinic. Ask for Nancy.

    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.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!
