Rant & Raves for Tuesday, November 13, 2012

VALDOSTA — The Affordable Healthcare Act does not equal lower prices on medical services for all. It allows for limiting healthcare services and resources to decrease cost and spending. Quality and Quantity of healthcare services will be decreased with the Affordable Healthcare Act.

In 2004, Bush's 35 electoral vote win was a "clear mandate." Now Obama wins by 97 electoral votes and we're told it's not a mandate.

Since SPLOST was voted down, I fully expect the government to control its spending. Do NOT raise my property taxes to pay for your pet projects. I voted for SPLOST. It would have had everyone paying instead of just homeowners.

I live in a modest home and follow a budget to make ends meet. There are Pastors in this town who live in luxurious homes and drive expensive cars. The money we tithe should go to the poor and needy and not support an extravagant lifestyle.

For all the tightwads who eat at local restaurants: grow up and order off of the adult menu! And if you feel you MUST order off of the kid's menu, don't expect your server to wear her/himself out running back and forth for all of your special request condiments, extra bread service so that you will actually fill up on your child sized meal, and adult to-go cups for your included free drink... your server realizes that you are cheap and they remember you.

If the election had turned out the other way, would there still be so much moaning and groaning? Next time, put up a candidate that is believable. No puppet of Trump, Newt, McCain, or Rush, can get elected!

The rich rule again. In all of my 41 years I have never been ashamed to be a woman until this election. It is shameful for a woman to choose “rights” over fiscal responsibility!

    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.
