VALDOSTA — How I practice my faith, how I vote, and what I watch on television come under the heading of “my business.” I mind mine, you mind yours and it’ll be just fine. Have a nice day.

Calling someone blissfully ignorant because they “believe” in global warming is laughable. Global warming is proven by science. It’s not a belief; it’s a fact. You just proved that instead of finding out information for yourself (like us Yankee liberals), you let the Fox News pundits tell

you what is “true” and “false.”

Everyone has an opinion and everyone should agree to disagree. No one has to think the same as you. That’s what makes the world — difference in people. Why are your thoughts always right? Wrong!

Out of 600 graduates, you don’t think 200 of them can be honor graduates? That’s a terrible and negative thing to say. These kids have worked hard to have a good average. When I graduated almost 15 years ago, you needed an A average over all four years to graduate with honors. Out of 450, at least a hundred and twenty-five were honors. And good for every single one of them!

Eight-thousand years ago when the rising Mediterranean Sea topped a cliff and inundated 168,500 square miles of prime farm land (creating the Black Sea), the humans understood it as retribution for their sins and thus created the “science” of Global Warmism. Nothing much changes, folks.  

The City of Lake Park sure does look unkempt. Weeds and grass in sidewalks, gutters, and all road shoulders. Nothing is ever edged. ...

They used to do a great job keeping our city looking so clean and pretty.

In regards to the county commissioners wanting to raise taxes, what happened to the 1 percent SPLOST revenue you all asked everybody to vote for? It is very confusing. Use the SPLOST money.

You can’t intimidate me with your climate change error. I have read Psalms 104 and know Who holds the future.

    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.
