Rant & Rave for Monday, Feb. 18, 2013

-- — SGMC employees, there is a sidewalk around the ambulance drive for a reason! Get on it and get out of the middle of the way!

Insurance companies have been jacking up prices for years. But they’re thrilled that you’re blaming the President for their greed.

Responsible parents? Few of them anymore.

Hey, Grump, just don’t read the column that day! Hate to be your mate; you must be a joy!

Former recycling attendant rave: Thank you for giving me more time to do some fishing. I am noticing a lot of trash along the county roads. Some fine resident should load it up and drop it off at one of our commissioners’ houses and let them look at it everyday. The recliner on 376 has been in that ditch for three weeks now.

Someone doesn’t understand the Affordable Healthcare Act if they think you can hire more people and work shorter hours. It’s the total amount of labor added up that is used to determine eligibility.

I know the change with the disposal company is a big transition for a lot of people but I would like to praise the company. It has been an easy transition for our neighborhood and I was pleased after speaking with a very pleasant woman from the company when I called with a question regarding the old cans. So thanks, Advanced Disposal, for working hard to try and make it a smooth transition!

Why does anyone need multiple firearms or an AR-15? Why does anyone need a 400hp car, a private, two-seat jet that can do Mach 2, or venemous reptiles as pets? It’s a matter of choice and, guess what, only one of these is protected by the Constitution.

Referring to the person who said “some people do not handle change well,” concerning the change over to Advance Garbage Collection, I am having a hard time handling the change over to bulk garbage floating in my ditch as I have nowhere else to place it.

    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.

    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.
