Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2013

-- — Fact 1: The problem is with the city waste system! Fact 2: Why should county taxes go up to help pay for city problems!?

In the Republican Party, to which I have been a life-long member, we expect to hear diverse opinions, including some that don’t follow the party line. So don’t assume that those who disagree with you are liberal or government leaches. This is a “political” party and not a cult. We strongly support freedom of speech.

Three days without government has been wonderful. They haven’t been able to pass any laws or levy any taxes; have you been affected at all? I hope the Dems refuse to cooperate and we stay like this for a long time; I love less government!!

May I remind all complaining about dogs pooping in their yard — we have a deal! They provide the unconditional love. We provide the yards.

Hail to the Tea Party and the other Republicans for standing up for America and what is right for its citizens. We have too long been a country that embraces and enables those who are entitled. We need to go back to what made this country great in the first place, which is working hard and sacrificing to make a better life for ourselves and our children. People need to stop whining ... Be willing to fight for what is right. President Obama will be judged more for what he didn’t do than what he did!

Tea Party intellectuals? Are these people not cut from the same loaf as the folks who say the Earth is only 6,000 years old, deny global warming and climate change, and think the South was justified in seceding from the Union?

Come on VLPR — it’s soccer season. How about cutting back the trees that are blocking the parking lot in Vallotton Park? They are making it difficult to drive and park.

    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!
