Rant & Rave for Monday, Dec. 23, 2013

--- — Who should I blame besides the city of Hahira for canceling the parade? I didn't cancel it. I had a problem with them pulling the plug days beforehand, knowing how a forecast in South Georgia can change in just a few hours time. And I don't know where you live, but I live very near the parade route and it was not raining at festival or parade time. One other thing, I raise my children very well and don't need you to tell me when I can have the 3 of them outside.

States have different rules regarding notification of lottery winners. In Georgia, if you accept the winnings, your name is announced.

To the person who took the lights off our bushes in front of our yard, I hope you have a merry Christmas and I hope God will continue to bless you as you go along in your life. Thanks for helping us not to enjoy our holiday because you took our lights after we took the time to put them up. You have a happy holiday.

I know this has been discussed before. Where are some good Christmas lights to view in and around Valdosta? Thanks!

This rant is for those living in Lake Park traveling 41 South to Valdosta every morning. You really don’t think you can drive 75 miles per hour and not expect to slow down for oncoming traffic do you? Your impatient driving could cause a wreck or you to be cussed out or flipped off. If you are in that big of a rush, you should leave earlier.

Ever notice that the same people that want to legalize things that are illegal under our Constitution are basically the same that want to make illegal certain rights that are legal? Takes thought; perhaps that fact alone will disqualify this from being printed.

    We don’t need Muslims flying airplanes around South Georgia. That is asking for trouble.

    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.
