Rants & Raves for Thursday, October 31, 2013

VALDOSTA — Hate to break it to you, but I think Dwight D. Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan would be horrified by the Republican party at this point. And I doubt either of them would have made it out of the primaries today.

Is it possible for a liberal to compose a rant that doesn't contain the words "Fox News"? Tell me, do you expect every single news outlet in the country to trowel out only his majesty's propaganda? Is one dissenting voice really that threatening? I guess it must be.

It amazes me the number of rude and disgusting people in Valdosta who toss wads of chew, flick cigarettes, and spit out their windows. Nobody else wants to see your nasty habit, let alone have it hit their car. Keep that nasty stuff to yourself!

I will vote for SPLOST the day our leaders show me where in the world they put the money I gave the last 20 years.

Today, I can rave! Allow me first: Communication in any form is better than none. I communicated frustration to the VDT RANT/rave a while back about a young man driving a yellow Nissan Xterra. Contact with this young man was successful. Thank you VDT for posting my rant and thank you Chris for fulfilling your promise to my elderly mother. Continue your hard work and you will be rewarded. Peace, harmony, and faith in your neighbor has been restored!

Tailgaters are nothing more than ignorant lawless bullies! I just hope the next one has really good insurance because my brakes work great!

Sunday morning, a young family in a white Enclave got behind us while we were peacefully driving along Gornto Road. I can only assume they were late to church as they almost hit us when they passed us driving 65 through this residential area. As usual, we pulled along side them at two red lights even though the young man continued to speed and tailgate every car he came up behind! Slow down, people!

    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.
