Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013

-- — To the person saying we now live in a dictatorship, remember as long as you are able to say what you want on the public forum, and do not have to worry about the Men in Black knocking down your door and making you disappear, you still live in a Democracy.

Was there no one in attendance at Representative Austin Scott's meeting who passed high school civics or elementary school math? The House of Representatives, not the President, is responsible for the federal budget. If Scott won't vote to increase taxes or decrease military spending, where is he going to come up with the money to balance the budget? The only other big pot of money left is Medicare...

Not all businesses can afford to accept credit cards. There are a lot of fees associated with those transactions. I for one am thinking of getting rid of my credit card machine at my business. It's getting too expensive. On second thought...maybe I'll just raise my prices. Are you happy now that I take credit cards?

Facebook is nothing more than a gossip media. Why must you post of the death of the student before the family knows? It could be your family.

Please save a life by adopting from the animal shelter. They are depending on you. Also, there should be a law against breeding for money. Poor animals.

President Obama is not going to take your guns. But the gun sellers sure want you to think that.

Valdosta City Public Works. It is 2013! Create a web link for special pickups. An answering machine that leaves us no clue when you will come is useless!

Bikers should wise up and realize we can't stop in the middle of the road for them or even see them until it's too late. You are risking your life as you know it and taking a lot for granted.

    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.
