Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013

-- — What kind of a jerk would want to spoil a family’s wedding reception, simply because it got noisy? Have you ever been to a silent wedding party? This is a once-in-a-lifetime event; meant to be special. So much for good old Southern hospitality!

If you thank the President for standing his ground on Obamacare, then you must be getting your insurance free. All others will pay dearly with high premiums, high deductibles, and a lot out of pocket.

Are you crazy? Sell the Valdosta BOE and stadium to VSU? Uh, can we say, No! VSU can build their own thing. VCS has had the Williams street property since 1921 or 1922. That is history. It does not need to be sold.

Just because you are driving a big RV, does not give you the right to just change lanes or turn into traffic whenever you please. Just because I don’t give in and slam on brakes when you want to get into the right-hand lane while I’m riding in it, doesn’t give you a good reason to lay on your horn and flip me off, like I was the one trying to cut you off!

Wow, the Williams Street sidewalk is enormous. This is a perfect example of wasted tax dollars. Reduce the enormous amount of waste in the budget and remove all wants now. There is no accountability. Vote no on SPLOST!

Why don’t you thank your lucky stars that you were not one of those considered “nonessential”? Those who weren’t allowed to work would have much rather been doing so. I think it’s selfish and rude of you to not want those people to receive pay. If the shoe was on the other foot, would you feel the same way? Highly doubt it.

    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.
