Rant & Rave for Friday, Feb. 15, 2013

-- — I want to rave about Pye Painting! They come into my home and done a wonderful job! Very trustworthy and friendly. I couldn’t have asked for a better job!

This forced trash pick up is a joke and someone will pay for this when the next election comes around. I think our message should be one and done.

You call me ignorant? You blindly follow a leader who, according to the congressional testimony of Leon Panetta last week, was told about Benghazi and never during the attack asked for a follow-up. Who insists the shooting at Fort Hood was workplace violence. Who just sent fighter jets and tanks to the Muslim Brotherhood. Really, I’m ignorant?

Bless your heart. I wish you’d post a list of these companies making “huge profits” so we’d know where to apply. The reality is that most companies are struggling to stay open. Not all business owners are evil and/or rich.

The poverty level of a single parent with two children is $17,568 ($8.84/hour). Obama’s pushing for $9/hour minimum wage, eliminating welfare for that level, unless he raises the poverty level to $19,232. If not, the parent will work less so they don’t lose welfare. Obamacare, and a higher minimum wage, both equal fewer hours worked, lower wage, more welfare.

If you want to see how well the trash collection is working, take a drive down Madison Highway. The beautiful trash containers are all turned over with trash spilling out. When I called for trash to be picked up in the ditches back during the summer, they just came and mowed over it. We’ll continue to do our part in keeping our county clean if you’ll do your part and at least open the dump sites on Saturdays!

    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.
