Rant & Rave for Monday, March 4, 2013

-- — To everyone complaining about bad roads and sewage treatment plant issues, I say this: If you voted against SPLOST, sit down and shut up.

The "Super Speeder" law was highly publicized prior to implementation. If you received one of these tickets, it means you were going more than 15 miles over the speed limit or 80 on the freeway. Rather than blame someone else, be an adult and own up to it.

I am a regular viewer of Fox news too, but let's be careful. Credibility is not measured by ratings, but by accuracy. Sometimes truth can be very unpopular.

I'm sorry; could someone explain better to me the idea of an unfair playing field for jobs when you commit a crime at 17 in Georgia, but it's sealed in other states? That's the silliest thing I've ever heard. How about: don't commit a crime period and then you don't have to worry about it at all.  

Arch-conservative publication Forbes ran an article saying Fox viewers are more poorly informed than people who watch no news at all. Use Internet search "forbes fox viewers.”

Why is it when someone passes away, grief is replaced by pure greed and downright selfishness? What do these families hope to accomplish by exhibiting this kind of stupid behavior? Nothing should be more important than family especially money and material possessions.

Sounds like some of the previous SPLOST funds should have been used to solve the 40-year-old problem at the Withlacoochee Wastewater Treatment Plant before now. The pending problems did not just happen after the “no” vote. Don’t blame the voters; it was all about how the funds were spent as evidenced here. Now, what about the $30-a-year Storm Water Fee each residential customer is paying now? Do the math and find the money.

    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.
