Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2013

-- — How much longer can this country allow itself to be run by the obstructionist tea party and the NRA? We must wake up and do something! We are being held hostage by people in Washington who are obviously not intelligent enough to be in the positions they are in. Please continue to vote, no matter how hard they try to stop you!

Just because you live in the country doesn’t mean you don’t have to have your dog controlled. Have a secure fenced area even when they are house dogs. They still need the fenced area to potty safely. It prevents their horrible deaths and wrecks caused by them running in front of vehicles.

I was for the SPLOST tax but with the increase this year in my property tax, I can’t afford to support another tax. Sorry.

Shame on the two young girls who hit the truck as you were parking at Cheddars on Sunday. As you were both laughing at the damage you caused to the truck — we were laughing at how stupid you both are. All 41 of us watching from the windows at Cheddars. Thanks for the Sunday afternoon entertainment.

The city should close off Highland Heights Drive at the Melrose Drive stop sign to keep careless degenerates from speeding down our 30 mph street, running the stop signs, and using it as a “cut through.”

How many people remember when kids playing sports was about fun and the love of the game? Now it’s all about winning, not whether the kids enjoy the game or not. If you aren’t good enough, you don’t get to play. Isn’t this some type of bullying? Telling a child they aren’t good enough. What’s wrong with this picture?

All us teachers and county BOE employees know who approved those raises. If he is allowed to go back to his cushy job, I guess we will finally see who really runs the show and who is watching from the sidelines.

    Funny, the people criticizing immigrants coming here looking for a better life for their family, are only here because their ancestors immigrated here for a better life for their family.

    Of the proposed 75 million that is needed to teach the students of Lowndes County for one school year, 55 million of that goes towards salaries. I don't want to hear no complaints about teachers salaries or furloughs again.

    Is it another sign of the times that people are too lazy to send thank you notes? I’ve bought four wedding gifts and two baby shower gifts since April 1. To date, I've received just one thank you note. It’s just good manners!

    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!
