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.

    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.
