Rant & Raves for Thursday, December 27, 2012

-- — The reasons some businesses say Happy Holidays is because some of their customers are likely Jewish. They also have a holiday in December.

Yes, by all means have armed guards/police in every school. While we are at it, let's have them in every church, mall, park, amusement park, playground, swimming pool, movie theater, everywhere. Where does it end?

I've been enjoying the Snoopy house since I was a child and now, our own children look forward to it. It brings back amazing memories. Thank you for all the amazing lights, Valdosta. God bless.

To the liquor store owner who thinks his time is so important that he has to rush people so he can get a hair cut. I have been in your store before. Maybe if you did not sleep in your office the whole time you could get some work done. My business and I will not be doing anymore shopping with you guys.

So you want to complain about a letter with no letterhead? Would you rather have the county spend thousands of tax dollars on "official" letterhead so that you would be impressed?

Finally! Thanks to all the wonderful praises printed in the Rant and Rave section I read in the Dec. 25th edition. So good to finally read some positive posts! Merry Christmas to all!

Thank you to the family who delivered hot, fresh muffins to South Georgia Medical Center Emergency Room on Christmas morning. They were delicious!

I would like to thank the VDT for having such a great Rant and Rave on Tuesday. Except for the "chancel choir" member complaining about the congregation not smiling, all the other submissions printed were uplifting,with people giving thanks and were heart warming.

I kept reading about a Christmas light show and Madison that was posted in Rant and Rave. What a show!

    I was appalled to see where the mayor blamed the current administration for not providing grants to fix the sewage problem because “we voted wrong.” These problems didn’t begin in 2009, they have existed all along every time the water flow exceeded the ability of the plant to contain flooding issues. My question would be how many grants were awarded for the necessary repairs when “we voted right”? Why hasn’t the problem been solved already?

    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.
