Rant & Rave for Friday, April 25, 2014

-- — How in the world could any pastor allow men to play on their church softball teams at Freedom Park and almost the whole team doesn’t go to church there or anywhere? Isn’t that against the rules?

Thank you for the wonderful article about Duck Barnes Dry Cleaners! This is a hometown business that is a pleasure to use. My daughter’s wedding dress is the one in the picture and they did a beautiful job. Thanks for 50 years of great service!

Traffic at VSU, college-age students should have enough knowledge and training to use proper crossing places and obey the signs and laws. If not, they should be taught by disciplining them. If you travel on a military base with similar age pedestrians it is orderly and safe. Treating college-age adults like children is not the answer to safety. It is time they learn to cross the street without a monitor or someone holding their hand.

I would love to see a graduation for Georgia Christian School grades K4 & K5 who will be moving up to the  next level.

What happened to Wednesdays being rave-only days in this column? I miss it. Please bring it back.

Stop making the wastewater spill a “tea party” thing. Fact, it takes a while for the pipes to break. The pipes wear out from the inside out. This problem began before the tea party was even formed. The problem is the powers that be have abused the system to fund their own pet project. Democrat, Republican, tea party, and other political officers are at fault. I have not seen any citizens of Lowndes putting together a benefit program to help with the wastewater issue? Citizens get involved.

Methane only burns in a very narrow ratio of oxygen to methane. Once it gets above ground, the explosive potential drops quickly. If, however, you cover the pipe with five feet of dirt instead of three feet, you increase the amount of area holding explosive gas. ...

I ditto the rant on screaming and yelling commercials. I don’t like the “normal” ones much less the obnoxious and irritating loud ones. I mute it and look away or turn the channel for a few minutes. Those sellers sure won’t get my business either.

I read the list of new concealed handgun laws passed by the Georgia government. It is nothing but sheer madness, collective lunacy, and profound insanity.

    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.
