The Valdosta Daily Times

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.

I have a little advice for the coaches. Politics and friendships do not win championships.

Why does Lowndes County say they support local businesses when we are trying to put a local business, Deep South Sanitation, out of business and give total control to a company that is not even American owned.

We have over decades fought wars that will never end. We help other countries that hate us, and kill our young men and women and so many have been maimed up and their lives ruined. For what? Isn’t it time our military came home from all over the world and our government make our country the strongest ever, by making other countries tremble in their boots if they even think of hurting America?
