Rant & Raves for Wednesday, November 28, 2012

VALDOSTA — To the raver that is happy that Obama is back in the White House, just wondering when the last time you held a job or paid taxes or health insurance? The answer is probably haven’t that would explain why you wanted him for four more. You must be part of the “Give me more” liberals.

When you watch a news channel that is censored by the government, did I happen to mention CNN, then you only hear what they want you to. Try watching Fox or the Blaze and get the real story about the lies, deception, and cover up in your White House. Open your eyes and your mind.

The Bible reveals that the early church never demanded the giving of tithes. They made collections of money to share with the believers in need. Does your pastor return the money to you? No, he takes it all and gives himself 90 percent or more of every dime and a tiny portion goes to some worthy cause of some sort to make it look OK, but the early church never did this.

The Valdosta City School system has set up a great tool called Parent Portal for us to keep up with our children’s grades, but it is useless if the teachers do not input the grades until the end of the nine weeks. I do my job as a parent to make sure my child follows the rules and does what is required of him/her in class, so I am asking the same of you.

We need to pass an ordinance that bums can only beg on church property, with written permission from the church. If none of the many churches don’t want them begging on their property, the police take the bums out of town and remind them that Valdosta is the third poorest city in the U.S. Go beg in a wealthy town.

    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!”

    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.
