Rants & Raves for Thursday, December 5, 2013

VALDOSTA — I agree with the ranter saying a light is needed at Loch Laurel and 376. But why do the drivers coming from Clyattville have to be clowns? Because they're driving 60 mph? I'm pretty sure the speed limit doesn't change to 45 until past the intersection.

Is it legal for a Lake Park police officer to sit in the middle of the road (turn lane) with no lights on or engine running? I thought the officer might be in trouble so turned around to check. What’s going on? Concerned resident.

To the Langdale Place employee: regardless of what you signed, SGMC is subject to federal laws. If you are complaining or reporting a patient or employee safety concern and get fired, file suit for violation of federal whistle blower laws.

You know, I am sick of people trying to make Valdosta like Tallahassee. If their Olive Garden and stores are better then please just move there. Do not try and make Valdosta like it.

I would like to thank the Valdosta Firefighters for their dedication and loyalty to the citizens of Valdosta. My husband is a retired training captain from another Fire Department. As our son grows up he has shown interest in following his dad’s footsteps. So, when his school had the opportunity to go on a fire station tour, we were both excited. The firefighters were very professional and knowledgeable.

To the ranter complaining about being charged for maternity benefits by Obamacare when you're not having a baby: That's every insurance company. The monthly premiums all get collected and distributed at the whim of the individual insurance company. So you're paying for a lot of things you'll never use. But someone else might be paying for something you do use. That's kinda the way it works.

    Here’s an idea. Learn basic math before posting numbers about crime rates. The US has 1 violent crime for every 26 citizens not 1 per 262. Geesh.

    To the ranter about the A/C in the jails, you are 100 percent right. The male and females should be treated equal. Neither side should have any A/C. If I am struggling to put gas in the car to get to work to put food on my family’s table and not running our A/C to keep down our living cost then why should those parasites get their three squares a day, cable TV and A/C? Put them in tents and pink outfits and feed them PB&J that comes out of their own funds. Yes, just like Sheriff Joe out in Arizona.

    It seems people in this town, and especially those in my church are not happy unless they are complaining about something. Today’s earth-shaking rant is that the choir members are too noisy when they change into their robes before the Mass. Give it a rest or you won’t have a choir.

    Funny, the people criticizing immigrants coming here looking for a better life for their family, are only here because their ancestors immigrated here for a better life for their family.

    Of the proposed 75 million that is needed to teach the students of Lowndes County for one school year, 55 million of that goes towards salaries. I don't want to hear no complaints about teachers salaries or furloughs again.

    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!
