Rant & Raves for Wednesday, September 26, 2012

VALDOSTA — I agree with the person about people having children before marriage. It's a shame that people act like it's no big deal. They glorify it and make it seem like it's OK. Many of these children end up with no father figure!

The morals in this country have gone to nothing. We all have to meet our maker one day and believe me, He will know how you have lived.

If you are a dog owner in town or the country, have a secure fenced-in area or don't have one. Don't expect a dog to not wander off. They don't know danger.

To the person complaining about speeders on Berkley Drive: Regardless of whether or not the drivers are speeding, your pets should not be in the road per the City of Valdosta animal control ordinance. What if a non-speeding driver swerves to avoid hitting your dog in the road and hits a child on the side of the road?

Shutting down major thoroughfares for a high school parade is a nuisance to say the least. Besides, what's the deal about "homecoming" anyway? As far as I can see, no one ever leaves this place.

Here's a crazy idea. Let's take the billions of tax payers dollars in aid we send to these other countries that are killing Americans, and give it to Americans. Just a thought. We have to look out for one another because our government surely isn't.

Rave for Valdosta Family Medicine! Always great care from the front desk all the way to the exam room! Clean and neat office, professional stuff and attentive to the needs of the patient. Great job to you all and thanks for being there!

How much more can I squeeze out of my check? Utilities, gas, groceries and insurance keep going up. I rarely go out to eat, don’t have clothes for every season or designer anything. I don’t have any major credit cards and I have to make my car payment so I can drive to my job.

    Of the proposed 75 million that is needed to teach the students of Lowndes County for one school year, 55 million of that goes towards salaries. I don't want to hear no complaints about teachers salaries or furloughs again.

    Is it another sign of the times that people are too lazy to send thank you notes? I’ve bought four wedding gifts and two baby shower gifts since April 1. To date, I've received just one thank you note. It’s just good manners!

    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.
