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.

    Estimated that 10 percent of the U.S. population are career crooks, caught and not caught. Crime is the most logical career choice, all things considered. Because our governments (politicians) and their cronies have jiggled all systems to promote crime. That’s how 10 percent puts such fear in 90 percent. Causing great expense in security and causing the great self-defense gun debate.

    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!
