Rant & Raves for Thursday, April 25, 2013

VALDOSTA — It is amazing how many people misunderstand the Second Amendment. It is even more amazing that when liberals are faced with failure of moronic gun control attempts, they start misinformation campaigns. In this paper, there are regular attacks on the NRA. The NRA started as an organization to be sure black citizens’ right to bear arms were not infringed. The NRA’s agenda is to protect the Second Amendment.

If coaches want their players to give 100 percent and to give it their all, then they need to earn the respect of those players. The players have to admire and look up to the coach in order for them to play with all of their heart and soul. The coaches will be amazed as to what they’ll get out of their players if they learn and coach by this valuable lesson.

How ignorant as Southerners can we sound? There is no such word as vee-hicle. You sound like hicks on the radio and on television when you speak this way and it reflects on all of us as a whole.

You have to crucify your conscience on a daily basis to think like a liberal. Blurring the line between right and wrong and playing this mind game of extreme tolerance is a quick recipe for destruction. Word to the wise: They will take everyone of us with them if we allow it!

Trying to fathom the criticism of President Obama for not “showing emotion” for the tragic events. I want a leader who is calm and rational in a crisis, not one prone to histrionic displays of emotion. Conservatives it seems will stoop to any low to criticize a “liberal.”

The recent gun control vote results in the Senate did not show anything but common sense. The only thing gun control does is prevent law-abiding citizens from owning firearms. If a person decides to kill someone he or she will do it regardless of the law and it will not matter what type of gun that’s used. Assault gun or pellet gun, all of them require someone to pull a trigger.

    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.
