Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2012

-- — Be kind to others and smile. You never know what they are going through.

A huge rave for Jon Bowman and his Georgia Bridgemen staff and students. They were the second largest band (400 students) to play in the McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade. They are outstanding ambassadors representing Lowndes County and deserve our praise, thanks, and a standing ovation for their commitment and dedication. Thank you, Mr. Bowman, Mr. Mika, Mr. Maynard and everyone involved.

Many thanks to the gentleman or angel that paid for my mother’s fruit cake mix in Harvey’s about two weeks ago. You were used of God to bless her since she had just committed to God the previous month to pay her tithe regardless of what she needed to sacrifice... God’s blessings to you!

Way to go Hahira Middle School fans!!! What a class act you are jeering at a middle school player like that! Did that make you feel better? You have a great should be cheering them on instead of trying to make a 12-year-old child feel bad. Great sportsmanship!!

I just love how no one is blaming President Obama for high fuel prices (last two years we paid more in fuel than anytime in history) and when President Bush was in office, it was all his fault!!! Hypocrisy at its finest!!! Fuel’s up 250 percent and economy is down under this administration!!!

Thanks to the family that displays Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang each year. I am over 50 and as long as I remember I have looked forward to it each Christmas. What is the history behind this display?

In response to the question about presidents paying for phones, insurance, and iPad: No president has ever done that. My taxes and insurance went up so that you could enjoy these “freebies”. Who do you think pays the government? Middle class taxpayers like me!

    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!
