Rant & Rave for Monday, Dec. 3, 2012

-- — To the little red car with a Florida license, who cut me off on Bemiss the other night: I hope you were rushing to an emergency because you could have easily caused me to wreck with my young child in the car. And guess what? We still got to the next red light at the same time. No excuse for crazy driving. Do want you want on your own time but don’t endanger me and my child.

Isn’t it interesting that those who were so opposed to government help for the needy, are the first in line for storm aid? When the shoe is on the other foot; things look different.

The NOAA and the Weather Channel are not the same. Please! Contact your representatives and encourage them to give Obama and the Dems everything they want. The sooner the better. The best thing the Republicans could do right now is to give Obama everything that he wants. Obama’s course will end up with the United States going bankrupt, because there isn’t enough money on the planet, much less the U.S., to pay for all the goodies the Democrats want to bestow on their favored constituents.

To the ranter that said “his 60,000 a year business he owns has been on the upswing since Obama been in office”: All I can say is your business is either in gun sales or “prepper supplies.” Ha, what a joke!

I would appreciate the traffic division to come check out the intersection of Highway 133 and the new James Road in the mornings! Traffic is horrendous at that intersection and it is virtually impossible to make a left turn to go towards the prison/Val Tech, much less getting into the traffic making a right from James Road!

Want to see some hard-working employees? Ride through Ray City and watch the men working on the new sidewalks. I have never passed when they were not hard at work.

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    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.
