Rant & Rave for Friday, Nov. 23, 2012

-- — What is going on in the Rant and Rave is funny. Most of it does not belong here, that is if people used common sense. There is a lot of things wrong in this world. We should count our blessings and stop complaining.

With all the technology today, you would think the weathermen could tell the weather more accurate.

Far too many in society who cannot defend their position against criticism from others frequently blame sexism or racism as the real reasons they are being criticized. Doing so minimizes genuine examples of discrimination when it really does occur. It is another example of crying wolf when there is no wolf present.

There is a group of people hanging out on Norman Drive with their cardboard signs begging for money. They change positions and beg for money. Stupid me, I have given money to one guy a few times. Saw him yesterday in Murphy Express buying a whole carton of Marlboro cigarettes. This really makes me so mad since I had to file bankruptcy and can’t afford a carton of Marlboro cigarettes or anything else.

People need to check their facts. There have been more casualties and injuries to our soldiers in both Afghanistan and Iraq under Obama’s four years in office than Bush’s eight years in office. This is because of his political correctness.

Would someone please tell me what exactly has Obama done for the U.S.A.? You know, other than increase the deficit tremendously, cram Obamacare down our throats and embarrass us throughout the world. Please enlighten me.

Go to your place of worship! Who cares what the building costs? God will take care of that. He wants his children to worship together. As a city of Christians, we need to get together and make sure that God is. Remember, In God We Trust. Nothing else is acceptable.

    Is it another sign of the times that people are too lazy to send thank you notes? I’ve bought four wedding gifts and two baby shower gifts since April 1. To date, I've received just one thank you note. It’s just good manners!

    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.
