Rant & Rave for Monday, April 8, 2013

-- — Our leaders don't walk the innovation talk in their mission statement. Instead, they thoughtlessly tax more. In Washington, D.C., a camera more cost effectively collected $11 million in speeding tickets in two years. We could also use mobile cameras to fine litterers. Have them clean roadsides to walk their KLVB talk. No to SPLOST. Yes to innovation.

Will the new Chief of Police please encourage his force to enforce nuisance laws like loud music and barking dogs? I have a right to peace in my own home.

If you want to use acronyms in your Rant & Raves, please let us know what the letters stand for. For example, LHS FCCLA. Okay, LHS I can figure out. What do the other letters mean? Your Rant & Rave won't mean a whole heck of a lot if no one can understand what you're trying to say. Thank you.

Instead of confronting the business, people will use the Rant & Rave to get their message out. That way many others are alerted to what is going on versus the business burying the incident. It's a good forum to use if you aren't getting any satisfaction from that business.

To the person complaining about the new VHS, quit worrying what it will look like. When the BOE wants you to know, they will tell you. Until then, let them finish the Pinevale Elementary project and every other thing they have to worry about and not some drawing.

How many times is a certain letter writer to the editor going to complain about racism? Is there anything on planet Earth that you don't see racism in? While we're at it, where are all the minority candidates stepping up for public office?

Thank you to the kind man that stopped on Highway 41 and Perimeter Road  today. He kindly let me use his cell phone and made sure I was OK after being in a car wreck. There are good people out there.

    Of the proposed 75 million that is needed to teach the students of Lowndes County for one school year, 55 million of that goes towards salaries. I don't want to hear no complaints about teachers salaries or furloughs again.

    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.
