Rant & Rave for Monday, Jan. 28, 2013

-- — Why are so many given permits to burn on windy days? One spark is all it takes to get out of control.

Obama must have made a C- in his civics class in school. He does not understand the Constitution and knows nothing about the Second Amendment.

The Lanier Co. Primary School had an excellent Pep Rally last week. A big thank you goes out to the boys basketball team for entertaining the students. The students had a fantastic time.

Explain to me how requiring a photo identification for voting denies voting to minorities and the poor. In each case where a law was adopted, there were provisions to give them out free to those who couldn't afford them and race had nothing to do with obtaining one. These laws were made to prevent multiple votes by the same person or by illegal immigrants.

A traffic light that stays red for two minutes? Ha...try five! The light at the corner of Burton and Oak streets needs to be addressed. That one has been ran many times.

To the Quitman Police Dept. officer that travels Lawson Pond Road between Morven and Hahira in the department's large black SUV, slow down! My cruise control is set on 62 on a clear day and you always pass me like I'm sitting still! Your lights or siren is not on so I'm assuming you are just traveling to and from work. If not, turn on your lights and siren!

Thursday morning went to the store and saw the shortage of ammunition being generated by the very people complaining about it. Two pallets of ammo and 30 people hovering like vultures on a dead possum. If everyone would buy normally, ammo would be plentiful and available for everyone. Sugar, coffee, gas are all caused by panic buying. Smarten up, folks.

    I was appalled to see where the mayor blamed the current administration for not providing grants to fix the sewage problem because “we voted wrong.” These problems didn’t begin in 2009, they have existed all along every time the water flow exceeded the ability of the plant to contain flooding issues. My question would be how many grants were awarded for the necessary repairs when “we voted right”? Why hasn’t the problem been solved already?

    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.
