Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013

-- — Why anyone would buy or pay a lot for jeans that are ripped or faded, beats me.

HUGE Rave for Patience Lawson for the leadership she provided in organizing the first-ever Jogging with the Generals race event at Georgia Christian School. It was perfectly executed! If you missed it, plan to participate next year!


Speaking of 'sidestepping' Where are those ‘Fast and Furious’ guns and when was the last time the President submitted a budget? If conservatives sidestep, liberals just plain OMIT facts and choose not to focus on anything but taking more rights from the American people while leaving our children with a huge debt! Sooner or later the government is going to run out of other people’s money! Even Honey-boo-boo's family has a budget and financial plan. That should be embarrassing to all who re-elected these idiots for a second term!

Guns don't kill, people kill people; however, how do these people obtain guns? Everyday you either read about or hear about an imbalanced youth plotting to kill with supposedly legal obtained weapons. Why does someone need multiple weapons in their home? Should there be a law whereas if someone is killed by a minor or imbalanced individual, should the owner of the weapon be held liable for not securing the or not?

What was meant by “we only need you this much” is employers will cut hours from all employees while still hiring new people to also work those shorter hours on other shifts. All while keeping the business running. More hires, shorter hours, no huge payroll bump, no health insurance for anyone, business still making a huge profit.

I find it truly amazing that some conservatives not only believe the poppycock spewed forth from Fox News but spread it around without really using reason and logic. Medical insurance and health care costs were sky high long before Obamacare was a possibility. Pardon me, but your ignorance is showing.

All these complaints about Advanced Disposal. My neighborhood has had absolutely no problems in the transfer. Yes I wish at least one dump site on the north side of town had remained open for car oil recycling, etc. but most people here don't adjust to change well.

    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.
