Rant & Rave for Monday, Nov. 11, 2013

VALDOSTA — Tailgating is outrageous in Valdosta. I’m going the speed limit no matter how much you push, and if you hit me from behind, it’s your fault. Lawsuit time.

What in the world have they done to Williams Street? This has always been one of Valdosta’s prettiest streets and it is now unrecognizable. I think that the names of everyone that were involved in this decision-making process, as well as all other street projects, need to be made known to the public. Especially, any and all elected officials.

Three very large dogs cooped up all day in your house is animal abuse in my opinion. How would you like that treatment?

The truth is told on Fox News so if you don’t want to hear it, change channels. It’s not hard to do and I am sure you have a remote to make it easier.

Yeah for SPLOST! A tax where everyone pays, welfare recipients, illegals, and tourists passing through. I would rather share in this tax, than to see those of us that own property have our taxes increased. By far, one of the fairest taxes we have.

And you think CNN and MSNBC are better sources of news than Fox? They only report what they want you to know. If a Republican would have been responsible for the mess this country is in, I guarantee it would be plastered. The only people defending Obama are the people the rest of the country is taking care of. Get a job and take care of yourself. That is Fox’s message!

To “Justsaying” in regards to the four German shepherds, please contact the Humane Society at 247-3266. The Humane Society and the Shelter are two separate things. Have not heard about this situation.

We don’t need another traffic light (Connell Road and Bemiss) in this town. I already spend half of my commute waiting at red lights.

    Thank you, Mayor Gayle, for hitting the nail on the head about lack of funding to repair the Wastewater Treatment Plant. When citizens vote against raising revenue, then the only alternative is to increase water/sewer rates. Mayor Gayle, we appreciate that you care for our city’s elderly and those on fixed incomes who can’t afford a doubling or tripling of their water/sewer bills. SPLOST is funded by out-of-town sales tax, and protects the most financially vulnerable of our citizens.

    We don’t need Muslims flying airplanes around South Georgia. That is asking for trouble.

    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.
