Rant & Raves for Friday, October 26, 2012

-- — This is the hypocrisy of the South: You can’t abort that baby that you don’t want; it’s your right to smoke while pregnant! If you believe in the sanctity of human life, then you should despise both abortion and poisoning a fetus while pregnant!

I don’t mind saying one of the reasons I voted for President Obama is because of his race. What makes you think your race is the only one qualified to run this country?

I just had lunch at Moulton Branch as a visitor and can’t believe the way some parents allow their daughters to dress! One second-grader was wearing a skirt that barely covered anything and the shirt was neon mesh that was see-through! Please stop allowing your children to dress beyond their age.

Dislike President Obama policies; but respect him as our leader.

You are lazy if: You park or “stand” in the fire zone; you park in the striped zones that are not parking spaces; you use someone else’s handicap placard (against the law).

The Haven’s number is (229) 244-1765 to the person who was asking about the Black Robes and White Horses — don’t know about them but The Haven is a God-sent blessing for women who need the help. God bless.

The Republican Party is too small for a republic and too large for an asylum.  

Silent Ministries provides support, encouragement, and protection for children set to testify in abuse cases through our grass roots National Association For Child Protectors and Black Robes and White Horses. Through this faith-based ministry we help children with basic needs, legally called “necessaries.” This is from their website. They have a phone number in Lake Park: 559-6832

Let me buy you a steak dinner! Oh wait ... I already did. I saw you buying it on an EBT card, which has my tax dollars loaded on it.

    I was appalled to see where the mayor blamed the current administration for not providing grants to fix the sewage problem because “we voted wrong.” These problems didn’t begin in 2009, they have existed all along every time the water flow exceeded the ability of the plant to contain flooding issues. My question would be how many grants were awarded for the necessary repairs when “we voted right”? Why hasn’t the problem been solved already?

    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.
