Rant & Rave for Monday, Nov. 5, 2012

-- — Parents always seem to mess things up when it comes to kids. Take sporting events. The kids seem to be having a fun and great time, but then the parents start getting involved and before you know it a fight has broken out. Is it the kids fighting on the field? No. It's the parents in the stands.

Do you know what's going to happen once the new VHS school opens? Families who reside in the county will begin to send their children to that school rather than Lowndes because it'll be the newest school around. Some people will say that won't happen but you just wait and see. Everyone just loves having the latest gadgets.

If you're concerned about beggars loitering outside of stores, just inform store management and they'll do something about it. It's their property and they can have that person removed. I don't mind helping out people in need but some of these beggars are scam artists. A few of them hurts everyone else who really need the help.

To the person who stole our pumpkin out of our yard, thank you for ruining my family's Halloween night!

If classified ads had pictures and prices, then the people selling these items couldn't get you on the phone to deal with you. Curiosity is part of what makes the sales experience. If you knew those things right off the bat, you wouldn't bother with the seller. And then the seller would lose a potential customer or buyer.

If anybody needs a good psychiatric doctor or counselor, AR Psychiatric  and Counseling Center on N. Oak St. Ext. is the best,

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful Halloween at Cypress Lake. I would like to thank the people who live there. It’s a great thing that you do, and to all the others that go all out. People like you make others want to do more.

    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.
