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.

    It seems people in this town, and especially those in my church are not happy unless they are complaining about something. Today’s earth-shaking rant is that the choir members are too noisy when they change into their robes before the Mass. Give it a rest or you won’t have a choir.

    Funny, the people criticizing immigrants coming here looking for a better life for their family, are only here because their ancestors immigrated here for a better life for their family.

    Of the proposed 75 million that is needed to teach the students of Lowndes County for one school year, 55 million of that goes towards salaries. I don't want to hear no complaints about teachers salaries or furloughs again.

    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.
