Rant & Rave for Tuesday, May 7, 2013

-- — I am a white woman and I am trying to understand what the family of Kendrick Johnson is trying to accomplish. I hate that their son has died and I understand their grief. What I don’t understand is why they seem so sure that he was murdered. Who do they think murdered the young man? ...

To all who use Coleman Road as a short cut between Old Highway 41 North and North Valdosta Road, please remember the speed limit is 35, not 65. Tailgating me isn’t going to make me go faster. Remember, it’s our neighborhoods, not your short cut!

I understand the Johnson family wanting to get answers. I can’t fault them for their protests and gatherings. I don’t

personally think they should hold pictures up for kids to see. And above all, please ask your activists to refrain from turning this into a race issue, if that’s truly how you feel. ...

Sending your child to elementary school wearing a T-shirt with an autopsy photo on it is disgusting!

The sheriff’s excuse for the late coroner notification was that he was out of town. None of his investigators or officers knows the phone number for the coroner? Ever heard “better be safe than sorry?”

Do not allow others to pull out if waiting at a red light or in line. So many wrecks have happened because of this and they shoot out across the road to oncoming traffic. Vision is impaired from other autos and blind spots. Don’t do the favor of causing a wreck because you will be involved then.

Speed bumps are needed at PetSmart to slow autos down. Also, shrubs should be cut lower and more often. Animals get loose and kids run from parents so please drive with caution.

    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.
