Rant & Rave for Friday, March 29, 2013

VALDOSTA — Careful what you wish for replacing ATT with Mediacom. I guess you will be OK until you need repair or customer service. You will then understand what I mean.

Why hasn’t the Valdosta City Council authorized the sale of Municipal Bonds to fund the new waste water treatment plant instead of waiting for grants or another round of SPLOST which may never be approved. You have had four years to solve this problem, but have done nothing. I have shown you a way out. Don’t wait till I get elected before you act.

Stop blaming everything on the EPD and start fixing the problems. You have funds enough to fix the problem in the critical areas. This will need to be done anyway even if the new plant is built. Don't be afraid to spend some of the taxpayers money saved up, it's our money anyway and we want something done now. MAN UP!

VSU employees have not had a raise in six years, but there is a “showcase” fund with $30,000 in it for a party? McKinney needs to check his priorities

To the ranter complaining about being tired of all the scholarship athletes at Valwood, I am willing to bet you were one of the many who cheered when Valwood won their championship last season.

How many more families in our neighborhood have to be terrorized by our mentally ill neighbor before the authorities do something?

Raves to the Valdosta Veterinarian Hospital staff. They are all dedicated, loving people. They care about our fur babies and we are happy they do. A big Thank You to you all.

It should be remembered that it's not the law abiding gun owner committing these horrendous acts. It's the criminal who, by definition, would break the laws anyway. Campus carry would be permitted by those with Georgia Weapons Permits and they must go through a background check to obtain one. Isn't that one of the biggest arguments in the current bill?

So you’re saying somebody is going to be shot because guns would be allowed on campus? Were guns allowed at Columbine? Were guns allowed at Sandy Creek? By banning guns from areas all you are doing is putting an open season on the good law abiding citizens so any wacko that wants can shoot up a place with no worries someone will be able to fight back.

    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.
