Rant and Raves for Friday, December 7, 2012

VALDOSTA — A big rave for the Valdosta Middle School Christmas band concert. The band sounded great and the percussion ensemble was fantastic!

What is wrong with some of you people? It bothers you that badly that pastors get paid? Not all of their salary comes straight from tithes. I personally volunteer as a teacher and have several leader positions in the church. And I can speak with certainty that it does not bother me, nor the other church volunteers, that we do not get paid, but our pastor does.

Got a solution to immigration and over population. Those who want to come to America legally, and work as a citizen, please let them come. Those who so desperately want to secede from the union, let them go to Mexico, there...problem solved.

To the person complaining about your precious "tax" dollars being used to subsidize the person living on $330/month, you are actually subzidizing all those without health insurance now who use the hospital emergency rooms for health care and can't pay. President Obama's plan is for more people to pay into the system that everyone uses.

The citizens of Lowndes voted against the SPLOST because they disapproved of the projects. Most however will agree with the fairness of the tax.

Has anything been heard about paving White Water Road? This street is getting worse from the beginning to the end of it. Please pave it, not patch it.

Please help protect Moody AFB. Please call your county commissioner (there are currently three that will vote on Tuesday) and ask them to vote NO on the ULDC text amendment. We cannot take a gamble and lose the base.

To the ranter that had to wait only 30 minutes for an ambulance, consider yourself lucky! In Lanier County, we have to wait for another county to send one because ours is either busy or on another call.

    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.
