Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2012

-- — Choose an MD that listens to what’s concerning or hurting you and not in a hurry to see the patient in the next room. A pill shouldn’t always be the answer. Medical testing is very important to finding the real problem. Patients don’t have the knowledge you have or always know all questions to ask.

If your doctor’s office harasses you about a balance due before you receive your insurance’s EOB, change immediately. This office isn’t about patient care but making the doctor richer to expand his facilities.

Nosy busybodies that pick up a home for sale info sheet after dark should know they are on camera.

A huge rave to my husband. My stepchildren’s mother didn’t want them. My husband and I raised them alone. The dad isn’t always the bad guy.

Lowndes band was just flat rude for playing so loud while Colquitt County was running their offense. They knew they weren’t supposed to. Bad leadership! And I am a Lowndes fan!

I guess Valdosta is going to run off another good coach because he lost a couple of games.

Does your road need resurfaced, drainage systems fixed, potholes repaired, traffic light questions, street light outages, curb painted, help with flood questions? Then call the city engineering department.

You single mothers obviously didn’t read! The comment was about how it has become acceptable in today’s society for girls/women to have children out of wedlock. Yes, there are many single mothers out there, myself included, but I was a married adult when I decided to have a baby.

I just read in the VDT SPLOST article “It’s not a new tax, just a continuation!” A bureaucrat justifies his job by spending, no budget — no job. This is why the citizens of Valdosta need a new soccer field, a new civic auditorium, and all the other goodies you just cannot live without. Prepare for all the “eye candy” as they persuade you to dig in to your pocket book by voting for SPLOST. Their jobs depend on it.

“Bands are not to play during live-ball situations. The referee will always wait for a complaint before issuing a warning.” This is directly from the website rules. As a Viking fan, I would appreciate it if we would teach our young adults to do the right thing to begin with and not have to be warned for violating the rules.

    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.
