Rant and Rave for Wednesday, April 11, 2012

VALDOSTA — On any given Saturday in South Georgia, many runners are out supporting their local charities by running a 5K or 10K. However, I only occasionally see photos and results from any of these races. Would it kill the VDT to run a few more photos of these races —maybe make one of the football, baseball or basketball photos smaller?

If you can give an animal a good, caring home, please adopt one from the animal shelter. There are so many and they need you, not to be put to death. Please!

Why did Berrien let go of another football coach a few weeks ago?

Listen people, if the county recycling centers are closed, take your trash back home! Center hours and days of operation are clearly posted at each site. Holiday schedules are posted at the entrance to each site as well. If you continue to throw trash over the fence, you will get caught, so beware.

To the person in the white truck throwing garbage over the fence at the Mineola site, I just want to tell you that I got your tag and it won’t be long before you get a visit from code enforcement.

The Affordable Health Care Act does not allow capitalistic competition to continue. It limits charges and undermines prices to such an extent that private insurance cannot compete with it, which will result in a single payer system eventually. It also requires the purchase of a product, something the federal government cannot do constitutionally.

Broccoli is a good thing. But if the federal government forced you to purchase broccoli, would you be happy? If you refused to buy broccoli and the government then fined you for your refusal, would you be happy? That is part of the debate about the socialistic health care plan.

    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.
