Rant & Raves for Friday, November 16, 2012

VALDOSTA — I want to thank the person in a white PT Cruiser at Bojangles on Tuesday for paying for my lunch. I will pay it forward. Thank you again.

I would like to take a moment to rave about the owner/operator of Chick-Fil-A on St. Augustine Road, Charlie Crews. In the year and a half I’ve been eating there, I can tell you he is a man of honor, character, and integrity. He loves the Lord and it is very evident in how he runs his business and he has certainly earned my respect.

We can order anything on the menu including a kid’s meal if that is all we want to eat. You cannot be forced to order a meal that is more than what you want to eat or can afford. Be thankful that you have customers because without them you wouldn’t have a job.

After the past years of voter fraud, lack of ID support for voter identification, military members votes not being counted or allowed. Seems to me that this voting procedure is in the immediate need for change.

In regards to the ranter about kid’s meals, a lot of people don’t order full-size meals because it is just too much. That is the reason we have so many overweight  people in America because the meals are portioned to the biggest. It is not because we are cheap.

To the poster who said people who order off the kid’s meal are cheap, did you ever stop to consider that some of us struggle with weight issues and are trying to avoid the temptation afforded by the oversize portions in many restaurants?

Those who are dissatisfied about the way tithes are used and you think the pastors are living lavish lifestyles, that pastor will have to answer to God. The tithes are to be used for the church’s needs such as missions, expenses of the church and the needs of others. Meet with church officials, ask questions and don’t assume.

    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.

    I truly believe if we are forced to accept Obamacare, then all the physicians should be  forced to accept it.

It's still summer. School starts too soon.
Seems like the right time to return.
Abolish summer recess. Make school year-round.
