Rant & Raves for Friday, January 11, 2013

VALDOSTA — I love seeing only Raves on Wednesday! Maybe this will spread to the other days of the week! Most of the Rants are due to selfishness anyway!

To the guy in the red van trying to turn onto West Magnolia Street Tuesday afternoon — West Magnolia Street is a one-way! Read your signs. It’s drivers like you that cause accidents.

Hungry for some excellent seafood? Then Bubba Jax Crab Shack is the place for you to be! It is the best place to eat in Valdosta!

Welcome to the Dictatorship of America! First executive order to ban all guns, next wanting to repeal the 22nd amendment so he can be president for life.

Thanks to Tiger and crew at Pete's Otto Shop on Ann Street for their honesty, ability and professionalism! Thanks, guys!

It's great that so many Valdostans want to get in shape to start the new year, but please, please wear reflective clothing when it's dark outside! Too many invisible pedestrians on the road!

Thanks to Keith at Tire King. He is always very honest and knowledgeable whenever I deal with him.

All raves on Wednesdays is a nice idea. The problem is, it's just no fun.

Having seen how the VPD goes out of its way to protect runners during numerous 5K races, I find it hard to believe the VPD was targeting runners on Baytree. Were you doing something stupid? Were you running with traffic? Were you a hazard to yourself or others? Give me a break! As a long-time runner, I go out of my way to be safe and be courteous to others.

Seniors, be aware of scams. There was a lady in her 30s to early 40s standing out at  Sam’s Club on Wednesday asking senior citizens for money to go to Madison. When she left, she went toward Walmart and where the parking lots join, someone picked her up and they drove toward River Street. Seniors, please be aware.

Thank you to the gentleman that told me this morning I was almost as beautiful as his wife. It was such a sweet gesture and made my already bad morning a bit brighter.

Thank you so much for making Wednesdays for Raves only! That is so much more uplifting than seeing people bicker and complain.

Businesses that don't accept debit or credit cards are missing out. Most people don't carry cash anymore.

    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.

    I truly believe if we are forced to accept Obamacare, then all the physicians should be  forced to accept it.
