VALDOSTA — Some people would argue that having a society where affordable health care is a right instead of a privilege makes for a better overall society. I’m sure those people are ignorant as well, though.

With Obamacare in place, it looks like I do not need to contribute to charities anymore. All people will be taken care of.

Is it just me or does it seem as if people are just out to tear apart the Bible and all it stands for to make themselves feel better for committing sins? I don’t tear apart you. Atheism, Judaism, and Buddhism, nor do I care who you sleep with. Leave the Bible alone.

I was in Hahira and Adel this past weekend and they truly put Valdosta to shame with their Christmas decorations. You would think Valdosta’s lights could be seen from outer space with all the revenue (taxes) collected. Money’s going somewhere, all we get is a few snowflakes. Boo Valdosta.

In the “Duck Dynasty” affair, A&E released the following statement, “... we have always been strong supporters and champions of the gay, lesbian, transgender and transsexual community ...” Really? Champions? Well, let’s do what we always do, complain, watch A&E, pay for the A&E channel, buy products from advertisers on A&E, take off to Disney the parent company of A&E, and complain.

If you’d have read my post, the issue was Obama mandated EPA requirements. So, no, prior Georgia Power rate increases are not on him. His current war on electricity, which equates to higher rates for all of us, however, is. New scrubbers, new after-burners, will not help the environment, only hurt consumers. Vote Republican, defeat evil.

City of Lakeland, our trash cans are full as of Tuesday morning! Before the Christmas Eve festivities. Well now it’s Christmas Day and we have nowhere to put our trash. Since “the driver doesn’t get out of the truck,” what do you suggest we do?

    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.
