Rants & Raves for Tuesday, December 3, 2013

VALDOSTA — I think it is horrible that Lowndes High coaches practiced on Thanksgiving. These children needed to spend time with their families. One missed  practice would not have mattered in the playoffs. Coaches need to think about the families.

I am really getting sick and tired of Leonard Pitts and his commentaries  being in the paper. He is a racist and I am getting sick and tired of his comments.

In regards to the ranter about  the  high cost of vet bills, If you can’t afford your pet, get rid of it. The last thing we need is a liberal running their mouths telling  people  what to charge to run our private businesses and what prices to charge. That is the problem with the country now: a bunch of liberals telling everybody what they can charge for their businesses and services.

It should be illegal to have any snake as a pet, such as a python or boa. They eat animals, will eat kids and next you!

Posing for your own cell camera and trying to look sexy, just is not working. It's funny for the rest of us viewers online.

Have you taken the time to look for providers under the Obamacare plan offered in this area. Good luck, there are hardly any, check out the list or lack thereof. What a great plan this is!

I almost hit a man in one of those electric wheelchairs on Ashley Street He wheeled out fast facing me, taking half the lane. He and I both were lucky no one was in the lane beside me but sometimes you can't move over. Why are these people not ticketed? I see them all over the place and nothing is done, even though cops pass by. You may feel sympathy for them but it will be a lot more if they are hit. They are probably hoping someone will so they can try to sue. Please stop them from driving on our streets before someone is killed.

    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.

    Monday, I observed a woman at Walmart getting into her car, with two boys around the age of 8, one of which seated a young infant on his own lap in the rear seat, not using his seat belt. As the lady began backing out, I jumped out of my car and asked her to put that baby in a car seat. Stupid! Please, parents, don’t have a kid, if you don’t care to put them in a seat belt, or wear yours.

    To all Facebookers: You look like idiots when you post these “dares” of jumping in cold water or pictures without makeup. What do you think you are accomplishing? Absolutely nothing ... Send money to support the organizations and then you will be making a difference.
