Rants & Raves for Friday, June 28, 2013

VALDOSTA — I hope the person or persons who stole my grandchildren’s pool on Monday have a heart and bring it back no questions asked. If you choose not to and are using it, think about a 2-year-old saying, “somebody got my pool.” They sacrificed for the kids a pool and cannot afford another one.

I wish I could understand why residents/walkers in New Wood Valley (South Sherwood Drive) refuse to return a wave from a passing car. What are you so mad about?

Don’t stop at Paula. Let’s fire all these stars or wannabes that have used a racial slur. What comes around, goes around.

Why does the City of Valdosta dictate when citizens can water their new grass but the city itself can water their new grass on Eager Road every single day for hours on end? Not to mention wasting plenty of water because they are watering an entire lane of the road as well.

No matter how pretty you are on the outside, when you live wrong, you become ugly to others that know.

For those worried about the eggs in our stores being stored above the cold line of the cooler. In Brazil, I’ve seen eggs not refrigerated at all in many markets.

Many people don’t realize that firefighters and many law-enforcement officers (detectives and the like) give up a lot of time with their families to respond to emergencies and crime scenes. For someone to recognize their sacrifice, and the sacrifice of their families, is appreciated. Holidays and family activities are often cut short to help others.

Democrats are strongly pushing immigration reform (amnesty) to gain millions more voters for the Democratic Party in order to vote Republicans out of existence. However, there will be a sacrifice. A larger Hispanic voting block will replace Black Democrats with Hispanic Democrats in every political race in the country.

    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.

    Just announced in Atlanta that Valdosta came in first in the state for percent decrease in population for year 2013. Albany was No. 4. Do you suppose the City School System demographics have anything to do with this. City folks may not think consolidation was so stupid when we start playing in region A.

It's still summer. School starts too soon.
Seems like the right time to return.
Abolish summer recess. Make school year-round.
