Rant & Raves for Thursday, November 8, 2012

VALDOSTA — Now the election is over....All politicians need to do their part and remove all their signs in 48 hours. Or let the county. They should impose a $5 fee for picking them up!

Way to really support your team. Berrien County has the first region win in years and you’re complaining about there being too many coaches? I bet you didn’t realize some of those coaches do not get paid for coaching football and the other personnel are volunteers as well.

Don't look down on those who need help, help them or direct them to an agency that can help. You never know when it might be you needing the help. None of us are above having problems. Some people just have more difficulty overcoming them.

I agree that the radio volume has gotten out of control. And I like my music loud, so for me to say this, it must be bad. Driving around VSU the other evening, behind a red truck/SUV type vehicle and the music was so loud, it hurt my ears and I couldn't hear my own radio. Turn it down!

I agree with the reader regarding parents bringing their children into other neighborhoods to trick or treat. Of the children, half are not even in a costume and don't even bother to say thank you, then they throw their trash on the ground. Please, next year, trick or treat in your own neighborhood!

Way to go, Valdosta. You've voted down SPLOST and with it all hope of ever being a decent community for young professionals. What idiots!

I hope you're happy with the "raise" you gave yourself by voting down SPLOST. The rest of us have to do without community improvements because of you.

To those who voted NO on SPLOST, your public safety workers thank you. No new additional fire stations or EMS stations. We will continue to serve you with pride using radio equipment that may or may not work, so if we get hurt and need help ourselves, oops! I say again, thank you!

    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.

    I don't know of any gun owners who fantasize about being "the good guy with a gun." Just when you think you have heard the most ignorant statement possible, along comes one that tops them all.

    Monday, I observed a woman at Walmart getting into her car, with two boys around the age of 8, one of which seated a young infant on his own lap in the rear seat, not using his seat belt. As the lady began backing out, I jumped out of my car and asked her to put that baby in a car seat. Stupid! Please, parents, don’t have a kid, if you don’t care to put them in a seat belt, or wear yours.

    To all Facebookers: You look like idiots when you post these “dares” of jumping in cold water or pictures without makeup. What do you think you are accomplishing? Absolutely nothing ... Send money to support the organizations and then you will be making a difference.

    I smell something even worse than the Withlacoochee River. A big tax increase to help pay for all the lawsuits. Someone needs to pay for this and it isn't the citizens of Lowndes County.
