Rant & Rave for Monday, June 2, 2014

-- — The continual bickering about cutting grass is rather childish. Whether you own your home or are a renter, you should care enough not to let the grass and weeds grow so high. It basically comes down to being considerate of others. The city has an ordinance for the height of your grass. If the city fines you, maybe you will find time to mow your grass!

Employers, do yourselves a favor and have every computer in your office/business blocked from Facebook. Your employees are spending way too much time reading posts when they should be doing their work! That’s costing you lots of money each week and the consumer shouldn’t have to pay higher prices to make up for that!

We pay to have our trash hauled off and now our taxes go up $150. Will somebody please elect somebody who will cut taxes instead of raising taxes?

Although I agree mostly with what Leonard Pitts said in regards to veterans, I do more than just thank them when I am in a restaurant, I pay for their meal when I can. I can’t make the government help them. It is not the people thanking them in the airport he should be mad with. It should be the President and previous Presidents who refuse to put legislation in to help our veterans and not blame American citizens who thank them when they come through the airports.

To the ranter complaining about the trash dumped on Jaycee Shack Road, why don’t you go to the city and protest their communist pro agenda not to allow private trash collectors to have a business?

The railroad crossings around town, specifically the ones around Industrial Boulevard, and the one near Mr. Car Wash, are in need of repair. I reported the one on Industrial Boulevard weeks ago and it’s still not safely repaired. This is a safety hazard and causes damage to vehicles.  

A big rave to Matthew Woody for his marvelous coverage of the 347th  Change of Command. That was very thoroughly written and well done! Thank you!

    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.

It's still summer. School starts too soon.
Seems like the right time to return.
Abolish summer recess. Make school year-round.
