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.

    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.

    The Swiss issue all adult men a firearm. Owning a gun does not condone, or create, violence. Lay blame on the person not the tool. If you really believe that banning firearms will end the violence you are sadly misled. All that will happen is law abiding people will not have guns and the criminal (who doesn't obey the law anyway) will.
