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.

    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.

    I smell something even worse than the Withlacoochee River. A big tax increase to help pay for all the lawsuits. Someone needs to pay for this and it isn't the citizens of Lowndes County.
