Rant & Rave for Monday, Oct. 8, 2012

-- — The reason cyclists ride in the middle of the lane is too many drivers do not provide enough space if they don't. Drivers try to squeeze by the cyclist if they ride near the shoulder, which increases the risk of being hit exponentially. It's a tough balance for a cyclist of being respectful and staying alive.

My girlfriend, that lives with me, and splits all household expenses gets her income 100 percent from government assistance. Her disposable income is $110 a week. I work one full-time job and a part time job at a bachelor degree level, pay the other half of household expenses and have a disposable income of $20 a week. I'm in the wrong business.

I have been a patient of Dr. John D. Anderson for over 30 years. He has always answered all my questions and has never rushed me in and out of his office. His staff is always courteous, proficient and professional. I wouldn't trade my doctor for all the tea in China.

What justifies VPD using lights and siren to escort the football team to the Stadium? How is that a valid "emergency"? We take football in this city too seriously and it’s about time we treat it like a sport, and not the end all to be all of Valdosta/Lowndes County!

Thank you to the three girls "Open Bible Seniors" who helped me at the north end Chick-fil-A on Thursday night. Your help and kindness was greatly appreciated!  Also, big rave to the Chick-fil-A employees! Y'all are always professional and courteous.

If you want a wonderful doctor that has a wonderful staff, please go and visit Dr. Stewart Williams with Valdosta Family Medicine. He is very caring and he is a great doctor. Plus he does take time with his patients. God bless’ Dr. Williams and his 2 PA's (Paige) and (Brandy). You will get excellent care I promise.

    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!

    Chaining a dog 24/7 is nothing short of animal cruelty. It is time for our elected officials to pass a law against it.

    Just announced in Atlanta that Valdosta came in first in the state for percent decrease in population for year 2013. Albany was No. 4. Do you suppose the City School System demographics have anything to do with this. City folks may not think consolidation was so stupid when we start playing in region A.

    I truly believe if we are forced to accept Obamacare, then all the physicians should be  forced to accept it.
