Rant & Raves for Thursday, February 21, 2013

VALDOSTA — Again, I say that I own an AR-15 and it has never been used to threaten or kill anyone. It's used in recreational target shooting in a safe manner. Stop trying to blame an inanimate object and blame the human that misuses it.

I just wanted to give a big sorrow-filled goodbye to Mrs. Angela Sams at the VA office here in town. We hate to see you go. You are an Angel in disguise.

Small business is one thing, but what's the excuse for big business cutting hours to avoid paying health care? They aren't on the verge of shutting down, they're making millions per day.

Come on, Walmart on Perimeter, I came in to purchase one item and had to wait in electronics for 45 minutes until a worker that works up front finally came and unlocked the item I wanted. Then I get up front to pay and have to wait 27 more minutes in line because there was only two registers open. And this was around 7 p.m. There’s plenty of well-qualified people that need jobs. Hire, you need help.

As far as Star Parker goes, she wouldn’t be where she is today if it weren’t for all of those government entitlements she received.

For those too ignorant to understand, only FOX reveals the truth as to the lies, deception and corruptness by this liberal left-wing administration. While this country slips to ruins, our so-called leader enjoys another game of golf.

Gun nutters fail to understand the difference between 400-horsepower cars, private jets, poisonous snakes and AR-15s. A 400-horsepower car is designed for transportation as are private jets. Poisonous snakes are products of nature and the venom serves as a means of procuring food. An AR-15 by contrast was designed for the military with the express purpose of killing enemy soldiers with efficiency.

    If zoning is there to protect the businesses and residents who are already there, why is the Lake Park elected officials wanting to approve a change that does not benefit the people who are already there? Shame on Lake Park mayor and council.

    Valdosta Daily Times, you have done a remarkable job in keeping our community posted about the waste treatment situation. Please look into our gasoline crisis situation. I just returned from Florida where I bought gasoline 20 cents per gallon cheaper than what is being charged in Valdosta. Something is wrong with this picture.

    I want to thank Brittney who has been my family’s favorite waitress at Cheddar’s since they opened their doors. Saturday night was no exception. She never lost her composure while I witnessed some crude treatment from the customers seated near us. Keep your head up.

    VDT, please refrain from posting gun control comments. My son and I were at breakfast and he mentioned the low price of assault rifles at a gun show. I said that I was opposed to these. Two fellows overheard this and on their way out, the larger one said that I sounded like some the "communists" writing against America in the newspaper. He said that if were up to him I would be “lined up.” He got into a dilapidated Dodge pickup with anti-Obama, pro NRA, and a Baptist Church bumper sticker.

    It wasn’t  Remerton where  the rats were escaping to Azalea Drive, it was  from the raw sewage. At least  they are smarter than people.

    Thomas Jefferson said that we don't keep and bear fire arms for any other reason than to protect ourselves from tyrannical government action. That is why the liberals are trying to suppress Christians’ freedom of speech and why the government is trying to label gun ownership as a bad idea.

    The Swiss issue all adult men a firearm. Owning a gun does not condone, or create, violence. Lay blame on the person not the tool. If you really believe that banning firearms will end the violence you are sadly misled. All that will happen is law abiding people will not have guns and the criminal (who doesn't obey the law anyway) will.

    I don't know of any gun owners who fantasize about being "the good guy with a gun." Just when you think you have heard the most ignorant statement possible, along comes one that tops them all.

    Monday, I observed a woman at Walmart getting into her car, with two boys around the age of 8, one of which seated a young infant on his own lap in the rear seat, not using his seat belt. As the lady began backing out, I jumped out of my car and asked her to put that baby in a car seat. Stupid! Please, parents, don’t have a kid, if you don’t care to put them in a seat belt, or wear yours.

    To all Facebookers: You look like idiots when you post these “dares” of jumping in cold water or pictures without makeup. What do you think you are accomplishing? Absolutely nothing ... Send money to support the organizations and then you will be making a difference.
