Rant & Rave for Monday, Jan. 7, 2013

-- — You are many times more likely to be killed by someone using a cell phone while driving than by a rifle of any type. So, when are you liberals going to start calling for cell phone bans?

I'm sorry; call me stupid. But can someone please explain to me how someone riding in a taxi can get a ticket from the police?

My Christmas decorations are still up. It has nothing to do with commercialism, nor does it have anything to do with trying to prolong the season, prove a point or anything else some of you people can come up with. I simply haven't had the time or energy to take it down. Should you find yourself with nothing to do one day, please come over and I'll let you take everything down and put it away.  

When will people understand that buying gas once a week will not lower gas prices? Why not sit at home for two or three weeks? Laughable.

Everyone needs to fill up on Friday and not buy gas the rest of the week." Really? Think.

While the ranter had good advice for VSU students, all people of all ages need to do that. Another thought: let's all of us, including the law enforcers, obey the posted 35 mph speed limit on Patterson and Oak Streets.

Civility among all age groups and economic groups is at an all time low! Be nice.

The officer gives a ticket to the passengers of a taxi? Something is fishy with your story. Maybe the Taxi driver got the ticket. If the driver broke the law then he/she gets a ticket. I am sure there is some law or rule that states that if a taxi is pulled over by the law, they have to stop the meter.

    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!”
