VALDOSTA — The person Monday complaining about seniors deserving a discount. Senior discounts are not earned, they are a courtesy. The problem this writer, and so many others make, is linking Social Security as entitlements. We ‘bought’ Social Security. As a business owner I not only paid for mine but large part of many employees. If I had put money I ‘loaned’ the government for over 50 years, plus interest, I would be way ahead. The government is still using my money. Social Security should never be considered an entitlement. It was dearly paid for. Thanks.

Just another parent not wanting to spend time inside with their kids ranting that it is inside that gives you a cold. You can get sick from being inside or out, but even an idiot knows when you go out in the cold and dampness, you are apt to catch a cold. Drop your kids at the baby-sitter or send them outside. That seems to be the way some raise kids now.

Dear ranter, some people keep their Christmas lights up until after the New Year like me! Another thing, if it is my house, I will put my lights up whenever I want to.

Great shout out to the Elks Lodge and the job they do in the community around Christmas time. May God bless and we love you all. Thanks again.

If your medical bill has sky rocketed, you will be shocked with your electric bills. It is because your friendly Georgia Public Service Commission has sold out to your electric company and the government and they will be raising your electric rates.

Happy New Year to the person who took  the battery out of my boat on Francis Lake recently. Why didn’t you also take my reel, tackle box, etc. as well? They work well but my battery has dead cells. You saved me some trouble.

So, now President Obama is to blame for utility hikes in South Georgia? I have an infestation of moles in my yard, perhaps the President is to blame for them as well? Will conservatives ever come to grips with their own mental angst, trepidation, and hatred? It doesn’t look that way.

    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.

    I truly believe if we are forced to accept Obamacare, then all the physicians should be  forced to accept it.
