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.

    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.

    I don't know of any gun owners who fantasize about being "the good guy with a gun." Just when you think you have heard the most ignorant statement possible, along comes one that tops them all.

    Monday, I observed a woman at Walmart getting into her car, with two boys around the age of 8, one of which seated a young infant on his own lap in the rear seat, not using his seat belt. As the lady began backing out, I jumped out of my car and asked her to put that baby in a car seat. Stupid! Please, parents, don’t have a kid, if you don’t care to put them in a seat belt, or wear yours.

    To all Facebookers: You look like idiots when you post these “dares” of jumping in cold water or pictures without makeup. What do you think you are accomplishing? Absolutely nothing ... Send money to support the organizations and then you will be making a difference.
