Rant & Rave for Monday, Feb. 25, 2013

-- — The ranter isn't anti-gun,  actually, I have a weapons license, and surprisingly, it was fairly easy to obtain. We have come a long way but its main purpose still remains.

Fox News telling the truth made me chuckle until I realized that similar opinions were expressed by the tripe produced by Joseph Goebbels who said “Intellectual activity is a danger to the building of character.” Waiting to see an intellectual on Fox News, none sighted.

The warm winter has allowed some strange species to sprout lately. Just this week I spotted a full size mattress growing along side the road. A few doors down there is a dishwasher blossoming in the ditch and for the last month a huge pile of garbage bags has reached maturity just inches from the road. Good to know that Lowndes County has decided to encourage this diversity amongst the azaleas.

To the ranter comparing guns to cars, snakes, & planes: the key words in your rant are "purpose of weapon is to kill the enemy" if someone attacks you, by God they are an enemy.

To the person complaining about the cost to the state and county for the roadblocks. I am sure you can ask any family member who has lost someone to a drunk driver, that no amount of money would cover the loss of their loved one. And to a future family member that was possibly saved due to the DUI arrests, I am sure they would also tell you, yes, it was worth spending that money to get the “drunks” off the road. A drunk is someone who is intoxicated, thus the reason for the DUI. Get real people, lives were possibly saved, that doesn’t even include the wanted criminals and the child restraints. Be happy they were out there trying to save lives and protect our community. I sure am!

    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.

    I truly believe if we are forced to accept Obamacare, then all the physicians should be  forced to accept it.

It's still summer. School starts too soon.
Seems like the right time to return.
Abolish summer recess. Make school year-round.
