Rant & Rave for Tuesday, July 9, 2013

--- — As a walker, maybe I don’t wave because of road hazards, traffic, maintaining pace, have something on my mind, can’t see you behind your dark windows, or you wave at me so late that I can’t respond before you’ve passed.

I own a vacant corner lot in the City of Valdosta in a residential neighborhood. I have already posted no trespassing signs because people felt it was OK to walk their dogs on this lot and let them go to the bathroom and then not clean up after them. Today, I drove by and see that someone has dumped two tires on my property. I verified with the police. Dumping is against the law. I will now post no dumping signs. I also have to find a tire company and pay them to dispose of the tires. What is wrong with people? I work hard and I do not have any money to spare. I definitely do not have money to clean up after other people who are just plain sorry.

Don’t worry if you forget the bad things of your past. There will be a lot that remembers for you.

To the parents who bring their screaming baby to a 9:40 p.m. movie, DON’T! Or at least have the decency to take her out!

Last week someone commented on the dangers caused by trees and shrubs being planted so near the highway and blocking the view of drivers. I, too, think this is an issue that should be addressed by the city/county authorities to make for safer driving conditions.

Awesome July 4th 5K!

Can 84 be used outside of construction hours? Surely they aren’t working 24/7.

After I had to wait two hours after my appointment time the doctor had the nerve to ask me why I switched doctors! Duh! If I were two hours late you would have canceled my appointment.

    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!

    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.
