Rant & Rave for Tuesday, July 30, 2013

-- — I would like to know, as an employee of Smith Northview, why our hours are being cut and PTO stopped but yet SGMC can buy a new generator, parking deck, and critical care tower, as well as administration still making their six figures a year while us “low-lifes” are barely making ends meet? Looks like to me someone doesn’t have their financial priorities straight!!

Whether you or your business can donate money, whether you do mind or don’t mind displaying literature from a “solicitor,” just please be upfront. I witnessed someone tell a couple young girls to come back later that day, knowing he wasn’t going to be in the office when they returned. I then listened to him tell someone that he would be more than happy to display his brochures and promptly threw them in the trash after the gentleman walked out.

Not all churches in Valdosta are gossiping, scandal-loving establishments. And not all people who live in Valdosta love drama.

Someone with the county needs to look at the new  judicial administration building downtown. The roof looks terrible and I think it is only a couple of years old. Did they get gypped? Does it need cleaning or is it improperly installed or just poor building material?  

What’s up with the Georgia no call list? I thought if you are on this list, it is illegal for solicitors to call you. I don’t know if it is enforced.  Am I the only person getting bombarded with these calls?

Don’t get a pet if you cannot give it the care and love it needs. You are their family and heart, they depend on you to keep them safe. All they ask for is love and food in return, not to dump them or give them away when you don’t have time anymore.

    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.
