VALDOSTA — Re: This illegal Immigration, I’m sorry, I’m laughing so hard I can’t even reply. Hard to get a job if you’re white and white discrimination ... you have got to be joking!

Thanks to the man who was so kind to me in the ice cream aisle recently in Walmart. I will pass on the generosity. I am still smiling.

You are dumb if you cannot steer your car into the left lane on Madison Highway to turn left onto South Patterson Street! Sheesh!

Forgive me for feeling less than sorry for you for taking to Facebook to urge your utility worker to hurry up because you have a party at your home to get ready for. You have no idea the conditions that they work in or the many, many family events that they miss in order to keep you comfortable in your home. A little gratitude would be a nice gesture.

So the president doesn’t enforce laws controlling persons unlawfully entering our country and it results in an influx of children never before seen ... and he blames Republicans!? Geez! Will he ever “man up” and take responsibility for his actions?

You can enjoy a “wonderful” meal anywhere if you pay enough. Money talks.

I see so many begging for the return of their dogs. Get a clue! An animal will do unexpected things as run off when out pottying or they get scared for any reason. Keep a leash on it and stop being lazy. I hope the dogs find a more responsible person to live with.

I would love to embrace some of the ideas of the Republican Party and rejoin the ranks of the faithful. But until they purge themselves of the gun-toting, nut cases, fear-mongers, racists, and hateful elements, I will vote Democratic, lesser of two evils.

    It seems people in this town, and especially those in my church are not happy unless they are complaining about something. Today’s earth-shaking rant is that the choir members are too noisy when they change into their robes before the Mass. Give it a rest or you won’t have a choir.

    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.
