VALDOSTA — For those wanting to know where their higher premiums for health care are going, welcome to another socialist welfare program. Those with lower income and dependents will get most if not all their premium costs back in government subsidies while the financially responsible pay through the nose. Higher federal debt and more dependency on big government. I really do hope other countries stop making the U.S. loans and reality sets in.

It doesn’t matter how much money you have, what you live in, great job, what you own, or who you know, when we die we all will answer to God for the life we have led. We all put our pants on one leg at a time and no one is better than the next. Sometimes it takes a disease for you to come down to earth with the others to realize what is important.

Prior to “ObamaCare,” if I wanted maternity coverage I had to pay extra for it. So the idea that I was already paying for it is false. My premiums will double next year and my deductibles will go up. So much for Affordable Health Care.

Leave Deep South alone. The judge made the right decision. Greed is the only reason Advance will not just back off. How pathetic that you have to run someone else out of business to obtain your goal. Ridiculous and shame on anyone promoting this type of “control.” When the government’s control affects your livelihood ... you will then feel the same way. Merry Christmas ... ooo wait, that term is no longer politically correct! Think about it, people!

Pathetic. That’s the only word I can think of when listening to “conservatives” spew more obstructionist views about the U.S. House and Senate finally coming to a compromise deal for a budget through Fiscal Year 2015.

    It seems people in this town, and especially those in my church are not happy unless they are complaining about something. Today’s earth-shaking rant is that the choir members are too noisy when they change into their robes before the Mass. Give it a rest or you won’t have a choir.

    Funny, the people criticizing immigrants coming here looking for a better life for their family, are only here because their ancestors immigrated here for a better life for their family.

    Of the proposed 75 million that is needed to teach the students of Lowndes County for one school year, 55 million of that goes towards salaries. I don't want to hear no complaints about teachers salaries or furloughs again.

    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.
