Rants & Raves

for Thursday, June 12, 2014

VALDOSTA — Fox News Twitter accounts? Really! Just look in this column each day and you’ll see the same liberal rants using different words, but all saying the same thing. Guess all the other liberal networks aren’t enough for you?

I wonder what you poor libs would do if you couldn't try to run people's lives for them? Maybe spend some time trying to find facts instead of making up stuff out of thin air!

Will someone please explain the premise behind the gray benches placed at low foot traffic areas throughout our community? Zero intentions to take away from a charitable cause, just feel our appearance within these public spaces could improve. Perhaps the beneficiary would be willing to fundraise through marketing materials placed off public property?

Obama says we leave no serviceman behind; well, what about the marine they are holding in Mexico? He made a wrong turn and has been there for months. What about him, President? Oh maybe it’s because he isn’t a Muslim.

Many laws, both good and bad, are passed and signed into being. Sometimes it’s a knee-jerk reaction to a terrible incident and sometimes it’s strictly politically motivated. Unfortunately we now have a government that thinks the President can bypass Congress with executive orders. One that thinks it’s OK to break the law and trade a traitor for five terrorists without congressional approval.

If Tea Party types are killing people in Las Vegas, why are they winning primaries anywhere in the USA?

Watched good ol’ Faux Newz this morning, man-oh-man, they sure hate Hillary. Made all sorts of claims against her, everything except drowning puppies in the bath tub. Those Faux people are crazy.

A shout out to two airmen who came to my rescue within the past several months when my car broke down twice on I-75. One was stationed in Warner Robins. He replaced an alternator on my vehicle after waiting with me for more than an hour for the tow truck. The other, a Moody airman, gave me a ride to Valdosta when my vehicle stranded me around Cordele. How helpful! Super nice guys!

What is the purpose of the Valdosta Stadium turf? Why did they change it? It needs to say Valdosta Wildcats with the colors black and gold. It is not VSU stadium. If VSU wanted a stadium, instead of buying the old Ashley Cinemas and building that new building, they should have built a stadium.

    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.
