Rants & Raves for Friday, September 13, 2013

VALDOSTA — Thank you Mr. President for your help in the Syria crisis. It was a close call. Again thank you, President Putin.

As long as certain programs are using my tax money, it is my business. You want to keep your business your own? Get a job.

If the ranter is so broke and having such a hard time, then sell your nice things you bought before the hard, instead of mooching off the government.

Wear white if you so desire, after Labor Day! Anything goes and that is such a stupid saying.

The freeloaders still don’t get it. I am minding my own business when I rant about those who take unneeded advantages of assistance programs. It is my business because it is my tax money on those EBT cards. Again, those who genuinely need it are not the targets of my rants.

Try being a “real” man with a real man’s job instead of wanting one where you can sit, talk, and walk around flirting.

My, my, my. The ones rattling their tongues have forgotten all the rattling skeletons in their own families’ closets.

Two lane roads and traffic lights is what kills the flow of traffic in this town. Does no one else see that?

In response to the person defending their expensive possessions acquired during the “good times,” I can only say that because you pointed out that you are a Christian it may be worth listening to a Christian financial advisor like Dave Ramsey. His biblical interpretation of how to use wealth may have kept you from landing on hard times. It is best to live well below your means and save for those rainy days, rather than spend all your wealth on extravagant and unnecessary possessions.

To the ranter stating, “Try being a real Christian and be quiet!” Charity is the job of a Christian, not the government. However, today’s society is conditioned to think the opposite and you just proved it.

The patient recovery hallway in the outpatient surgery center is not an appropriate place for community social hour. There are designated waiting areas for casual socialization.

Note to music directors: trying to make your prayers into a song during the church service is annoying. Please just pray and move onto the music instead of dragging out the prayers over the life of a song!

    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.
