Rant & Rave for Friday, Nov. 23, 2012

-- — What is going on in the Rant and Rave is funny. Most of it does not belong here, that is if people used common sense. There is a lot of things wrong in this world. We should count our blessings and stop complaining.

With all the technology today, you would think the weathermen could tell the weather more accurate.

Far too many in society who cannot defend their position against criticism from others frequently blame sexism or racism as the real reasons they are being criticized. Doing so minimizes genuine examples of discrimination when it really does occur. It is another example of crying wolf when there is no wolf present.

There is a group of people hanging out on Norman Drive with their cardboard signs begging for money. They change positions and beg for money. Stupid me, I have given money to one guy a few times. Saw him yesterday in Murphy Express buying a whole carton of Marlboro cigarettes. This really makes me so mad since I had to file bankruptcy and can’t afford a carton of Marlboro cigarettes or anything else.

People need to check their facts. There have been more casualties and injuries to our soldiers in both Afghanistan and Iraq under Obama’s four years in office than Bush’s eight years in office. This is because of his political correctness.

Would someone please tell me what exactly has Obama done for the U.S.A.? You know, other than increase the deficit tremendously, cram Obamacare down our throats and embarrass us throughout the world. Please enlighten me.

Go to your place of worship! Who cares what the building costs? God will take care of that. He wants his children to worship together. As a city of Christians, we need to get together and make sure that God is. Remember, In God We Trust. Nothing else is acceptable.

    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!
