Rant & Raves for Thursday, June 13, 2013

VALDOSTA — The tropical storm brought much-needed rain. It was less violent than the thunderstorms we usually had, so we needed no warning calls.

Excuse me for blowing my horn at you for not going when the light turned green. How rude of me not to let you finish playing on your phone. I suppose I deserved having you flip me the bird? Next time I will take a picture of your tag and call VPD.

Thank you to the wonderful staff at Red Lobster. Our vehicle and several more were involved in an accident in their parking lot Saturday night. The staff brought out trays of water to the families and emergency personnel and kept checking to see if we needed anything. Huge rave to the staff and emergency personnel that respond to our needs.

A very big rave for the lady with the Berrien County tag, who rescued the kitten on a very busy street on Friday. My sister and I were right behind you; thank you for saving the kitten's life.

Bad driving is not the police department or DMV's fault. It's the discourteous individual who cares only about themselves and not other drivers. It's the one who screams about "speedsters" and yet veers over the lane almost hitting the vehicle next to them. Simple courtesy would go a long way here.

The City of Valdosta needs another cable company! Competition is a great thing.

Getting VA disability is not as easy as you think! Maybe you should go to war, risk your life every second for your country, not be appreciated and come back pieced together. That is, if you make it back. More people are on welfare that shouldn't be so gripe about that, which really should be the complaint.

    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.
