Rant & Rave for Tuesday, June 18, 2013

-- — I am a student at Valdosta State University, I pay thousands of dollars in tuition, but I am not allowed to use the Student Recreation Center because I am not taking summer classes. I was told that I have to pay $45 to use the Rec Center during the summer. As if I don't pay enough already... Utterly ridiculous.

I don't use Deep South, but if others want to, they should be able to choose. This is the same way they do in communist countries, no freedom of choice.

Will the Times please research and find out who are the REAL owners and partners in the Advance Disposal? There is underhanded connections that should be brought forward.

How about instead of complaining about people on welfare and food stamps, just be grateful that you aren't? Be grateful that you don't have to be humiliated and judged by a bunch of hateful people who've never been in an unfortunate financial situation. That's what I do.

It used to be a rule that those who don't work, don't eat. I miss that kind of mentality!

To the smokers of Valdosta, please do me a favor and don't come sit on the benches at VMS and smoke your cigarette while I am trying to exercise. Have some courtesy and go smoke in your car away from the people who are trying to stay healthy!

While I don't agree with sending someone out of state for training; however...defintely need to leave Valdosta for "fresh" ideas!

I'm a married college student who works in a restaurant. My wife and I have cheap phones. On months when our paychecks aren't high, we stock up on ramen. I'm saddened that my hard earned money is being given to someone who actually thinks he is justified to have an Iphone and still take from the government.

    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.

    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.
