Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012

-- — The city needs to check those Christmas decorations at Five Points. The lights don’t all work. They run out of SPLOST money for that, too.

I would like to send a rave out to Mrs. Robin McCauley at the Baytree Branch Bank of Ozarks. She was very patient and sweet while helping me set up my accounts. Thanks again!

A big rave to all of the restaurants in town  who were open during Thanksgiving for the families to celebrate together and those who can’t cook their own food. Thanks for giving the opportunities to families to get together and be together during the holiday. This is what the holidays are all about.

Please keep the recycling centers open. I will be willing to pay more.

As a Democrat, I want to give credit to Saxby Chambliss who is a Republican who is putting the American people ahead of a pledge that has tied his hands to make his own decisions. He is a new leader of the GOP.

I saw many going to the food bank this past Thanksgiving in Lexuses, Escalades, Nissan SUVs, etc. The food bank is supposed to be for the poor and hungry. There were fat people there also. They didn’t look hungry to me.

I don’t find it “upsetting” that people put up their Christmas lights early. We’re going to have our Thanksgiving dinner and look at our neighbors’ Christmas lights. They’re pretty!

I would like to suggest that the people who don’t want to see Christmas lights yet take a trip to Mount Crumpet and visit the Grinch for a while instead of pestering the happy folk here in Whoville!

To the person that said they voted against SPLOST because “only the rich people would benefit from the projects,” please tell me about all those fat cats and “Daddy” Warbuckses that frequent the Valdosta library, I’m all ears.

    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!”

    I think that all facilities owned by the city and county should have signs banning firearms in the buildings. I don’t feel safe if a firearm is there when I am there.

    There are some wealthy physicians, business owners in this town who target only certain demographics for their business, and reject competition and growth. With the new statistics of a shrinking Valdosta, I hope you and your selfishness are quite happy when your comfort zone disappears!

    Chaining a dog 24/7 is nothing short of animal cruelty. It is time for our elected officials to pass a law against it.
