Rant & Raves for Thursday, December 13, 2012

-- — Some taxes are used for roadside clean-up. Many taxpayers fearlessly litter roadsides to get a benefit from that fee. Why pay two dumping taxes? But litterers give law enforcement many chances to fine them, to get more revenues. Since revenues from litter fines are not celebrated, must be a small amount vs. the opportunity.

The Obama administration has been nothing but a roadblock when states have tried to enact legislation to stop illegal immigration claiming it's federal. Now that states are making pot legal which also conflicts with federal law, nothing from Obama. I guess if you're a law breaker, it's all good. .

That "Seasons Greetings" sign has been there every Christmas for years. Why are you just now starting to complain about it? There is no "War on Christmas"! Your remote must be stuck on Fox News.

I just wanted to say thanks for all the good work the Salvation Army does and thank all the red kettle bell ringers. Merry Christmas!

If every driver backed up on Jerry Jones would begin blowing their horns then maybe something would be done about this traffic mess.

One of the differences between liberals and conservatives is this: liberals think all money is the government's, and that your earnings are just an “allowance.” Conservatives understand that the money you earn is yours and that the Government gets an allowance from you.

To the lady in El Toreo Tuesday night. Your child was obnoxious. I hope you enjoyed your two magaritas and text fest while your child disrupted the entire restaurant and hit me in the back of the head repeatedly.

The high amount of red lights in Valdosta is due to the poor quality of drivers in Valdosta. Having to put a red light on Gornto for people to turn out off old Wood Valley is proof.

    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.
