Rant & Raves for Thursday, January 31 2013

VALDOSTA — City of Valdosta: How long are you going to let the caution lights at the  Bennie's Alley crosswalk stay covered with trash bags? It's only a matter of time before someone gets hit.

I mean really, the only thing Obama has passed Bush in is creating three times more debt and an even more sluggish economy. He also done that in his first term. Let's talk about all the job creation, oh my bad there isn't any. The lesser idiot here would be the Romney voter.

How about this weather? Get out, enjoy it, share your light and remember, we all relax in different ways.

To the person who stated Obama must have gotten a C in civics: I guess Mitt Romney must've gotten an F.

To the citizens ranting about burn permits. Burn permits are issued by the Georgia Forestry Commission. While I agree, I too have questioned why permits were issued. It is based on the people obtaining the permits to use "sound judgment.” If you feel that the wind is too strong, then don't burn; weather can change in a hurry. GFC must also use their      good judgment locally, not out of an office in Macon.

Thank you to the employees at Advanced Auto on Bemiss next to Sonic. They are always helpful with installing parts for ladies that have no idea what we are looking at under the hood. I'm also very grateful that even though it was almost closing time, they helped me check a bad battery and installed it for me. I just want them to know I really appreciated knowing that my car would start the next morning for work due to their helpfulness.

PetSmart does have adoptions almost every Saturday and Sunday. If not outside, check inside. Both the animal shelter and BARC Humane Society are represented. Don't forget to spay or neuter your pets and there wouldn't be such a need for this.

Thumbs up to Kerry

Scarbrough for standing up for the little guy

who is trying to make a living.

    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.
