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.

    If zoning is there to protect the businesses and residents who are already there, why is the Lake Park elected officials wanting to approve a change that does not benefit the people who are already there? Shame on Lake Park mayor and council.

    Valdosta Daily Times, you have done a remarkable job in keeping our community posted about the waste treatment situation. Please look into our gasoline crisis situation. I just returned from Florida where I bought gasoline 20 cents per gallon cheaper than what is being charged in Valdosta. Something is wrong with this picture.

    I want to thank Brittney who has been my family’s favorite waitress at Cheddar’s since they opened their doors. Saturday night was no exception. She never lost her composure while I witnessed some crude treatment from the customers seated near us. Keep your head up.

    VDT, please refrain from posting gun control comments. My son and I were at breakfast and he mentioned the low price of assault rifles at a gun show. I said that I was opposed to these. Two fellows overheard this and on their way out, the larger one said that I sounded like some the "communists" writing against America in the newspaper. He said that if were up to him I would be “lined up.” He got into a dilapidated Dodge pickup with anti-Obama, pro NRA, and a Baptist Church bumper sticker.

    It wasn’t  Remerton where  the rats were escaping to Azalea Drive, it was  from the raw sewage. At least  they are smarter than people.

    Thomas Jefferson said that we don't keep and bear fire arms for any other reason than to protect ourselves from tyrannical government action. That is why the liberals are trying to suppress Christians’ freedom of speech and why the government is trying to label gun ownership as a bad idea.

    The Swiss issue all adult men a firearm. Owning a gun does not condone, or create, violence. Lay blame on the person not the tool. If you really believe that banning firearms will end the violence you are sadly misled. All that will happen is law abiding people will not have guns and the criminal (who doesn't obey the law anyway) will.

    I don't know of any gun owners who fantasize about being "the good guy with a gun." Just when you think you have heard the most ignorant statement possible, along comes one that tops them all.

    Monday, I observed a woman at Walmart getting into her car, with two boys around the age of 8, one of which seated a young infant on his own lap in the rear seat, not using his seat belt. As the lady began backing out, I jumped out of my car and asked her to put that baby in a car seat. Stupid! Please, parents, don’t have a kid, if you don’t care to put them in a seat belt, or wear yours.

    To all Facebookers: You look like idiots when you post these “dares” of jumping in cold water or pictures without makeup. What do you think you are accomplishing? Absolutely nothing ... Send money to support the organizations and then you will be making a difference.
