Rant & Rave for Monday, May 5, 2014

VALDOSTA — Local medical providers, I am embarrassed for you that many of you are refusing to accept Obamacare. The insurance is a Blue Cross/Blue Shield policy bought through provisions made by the Affordable Care Act. Many patients are going to nearby towns for their medical care. SGMC you might want to be concerned. This could affect your patient census.

Rave to the good Samaritan who helped my son Saturday night at Chick-fil-A in Lake Park when he had a bike accident and the ambulance had to be called. The gentleman took off his shirt and gave it to my son to help stop the bleeding. Thank you so much.

We need “Shotgun” Charlie Walker back on the airwaves in the morning. ...

Why is Christianity growing so fast? Why it’s the evangelists reminding people not to be late for church in the Rant & Rave and the evangelists telling everyone to turn off their cell phone in church through the Rant & Rave. Tell it all, brother, tell how writing rants gives you that “peace that surpasses all human understanding.”

To the person wishing for Valdosta to have a skating rink, do you not remember in the not too far past when Jungle Jym’s had one? I do believe that was just last year. However, because parents feel it is OK to just drop their kids off and leave, it is gone. It’s time for parents to actually pay attention and supervise their children! That goes for all establishments around town. If they are under 16, they do not need to be there alone.

Big Rant! My 10-year-old son received money for a gift. He went to spend it on an iPhone case ... When he was shown the case by the male employee, he went to hold it and the man pushed his hand away and said he couldn’t touch it. Now why would he spend $25 if he couldn’t inspect the merchandise! Kids are customers, too! Shame on you, you lost business.

    Funny, the people criticizing immigrants coming here looking for a better life for their family, are only here because their ancestors immigrated here for a better life for their family.

    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!
