Rant & Rave for Tuesday, March 18, 2014

-- — Georgia House Republicans threaten our children’s environment by voting to repeal energy efficient car tax credits while maintaining subsidies on hummers.

Williams Street project was a success. Now one can admire the beautiful homes and landscape and the beauty.  

We’ve gotten 3” of rain in town and more north of town. Let me be the first to notify the geniuses that run the City of Valdosta who are in charge of the WTP sewer plant that it’s a good time to flush the toilet (Plant) and let all of our sewer flow into the swollen Withlacoochee River. Our river is already ruined and Florida’s once beautiful Suwanee River and the Gulf needs some fish food. So let the old and raw go. It won’t make that much difference.

To the owner of the gray dog that wanders the North Creek Circle subdivision in Hahira, please put a collar on your dog and keep him in your yard. It is very annoying to walk outside my house and see your dog pooping in my front yard. Please get your dog before I call the animal shelter.

Sunday at Walmart on Perimeter, people were so nosy to see what was going on during an emergency. The law should start passing out bystander tickets for interfering. The ones that could go through the other door, deliberately went down to the other to stick their nose where it didn’t belong! People are just crazy.

Introduction to Fear Mongering 101. Conservatives maintaining the idea that the missing Malaysian plane is being prepared for a strike against U.S. interests. They are stating that Indonesia and Malaysia are government supported centers of terrorists, which is not true. This is quite typical for right-wingers, long history of this happening usually with dire consequences.

    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.
