Rant & Rave for Monday, Dec. 16, 2013

- — To the pet owners in Lakeland: If you want your pet, you need to keep them on your property. They are going to get run over while roaming all over town.

Really, Hahira? Cancel the parade three days before the weekend? This is South Georgia. The forecast may have said 80 percent chance of rain then but now it’s a 40 percent chance, and by Saturday morning, it will be 10 percent. Come on. Got lots of disappointed kids now. Thanks.

To the person who found my credit card in the parking lot of the Dollar Tree on Norman Drive: I can only hope you receive the joy and peace-of-mind that you unselfishly gave me.

Haven’t we the people had enough of Obama lies? Govt. health care the promises? What is it going to take for us to come together and be one voice and say, No more, do the right thing or get out.

I left my coupon book in the shopping cart at Walmart on Inner Perimeter Road. If anyone found it, I would appreciate it if they would call me. My name and number is in the index.

To the person defending the EBT cards, comparing that with Social Security and Medicare benefits and things elderly people get, is comparing apples and  oranges. Most senior citizens have earned their benefits. An EBT card is not earned. Forty-seven million people on EBT cards is not a drop in the bucket.

I think it is time for Mediacom to come clean. If someone is to get sick, they can’t call for help. Mediacom should step up to the plate, either leave or fix their problem. There needs to be another cable company.

Actually, I put my pants on two legs at a time. Usually with a running start and a jump!

    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.
