Rant & Rave for Friday, Nov. 2, 2012

-- — Why is it that people only complain about what doctors and dentist charge? How about hairdressers, nail salons, cosmetic counters, movie theaters? No one seems to complain about a $100 hair appointment.

If you are looking for a great dentist, go see Dr. Garner. Best dentist office ever! We love Dr. Garner, Renee, Sally and everyone else there.

There are so many Rant and Raves daily that discuss other people's children, yards, driving, eating habits, manners, etc. It would be time more productively spent to be working on self-improvement, instead of concern about everyone else. It is a lot easier and more pleasant to point out the flaws in others than it is to look in the mirror.

Money is the prime motivation in Christian churches today. You most likely will not see the gospel printed in the Sunday bulletin, but you will see something about paying tithes, the church budget, new building fund, or the amount of money collected during last week's service.

If a child has been approved to go to a school other than the school in the area the child resides, why is it a problem for the child to ride the bus that comes to the area? Especially when the bus does not have to go out of the way to pick the child up. The child was approved to go to the school, but is denied transportation to and from school. Valdosta Board of Education, please get it together.

There are rude office staff every where you go. They don't appreciate their jobs anymore and take it for granted. They make friends with the boss, staff, and don't worry of being fired.

Wednesday post: Can anyone recommend a good grief counseling center (or person) here?  Yes. The Better Mood Clinic. Ask for Nancy.

    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.
