Rant & Rave for Monday, Nov. 25, 2013

-- — To the ridiculous ranter who is upset by someone showing a random act of kindness: If you don’t want someone paying for your meal there is a solution, pay for your meal anyway and allow that amount to go toward someone who is worthy of the blessing! After all, it is called “paying it forward” for a reason!

I interview many young people for job openings with our company and three things are very prevalent. One, they can't look you in the eye and actually have a real conversation. Two, they have terrible spelling and grammar because of texting. Three, most young men suffer from ADHD which makes it extremely difficult to get or keep their attention and 100 percent of those suffering from this that I have worked with are “gamers.” Parents need to wake up and see what electronic devices are doing to their children.

Ate lunch on Sunday at the food court. I cleaned my mess up. Why can't others? Those people that clean should be commended for the messes that were left. Do people live like that at home? Kudos to the cleaning crew.

Valdostans should be ashamed. With all of the churches and other great organizations in this town, surely we can provide enough bell ringers so the Salvation Army doesn’t have to pay anyone.

The only problem with the light show in Madison is they do it on a very busy road. And all the idiots park on the edge of the road with their lights off. I am waiting for one of these people to get hit and want to sue someone for hitting them.

The person on North Valdosta Road probably knew he/she needed to turn —like every other person in the lane — and chose to speed past everyone hoping someone would let them in. Moral: get in line and be patient like the rest of us.

    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!
