Rant & Raves for Thursday, December 13, 2012

-- — Some taxes are used for roadside clean-up. Many taxpayers fearlessly litter roadsides to get a benefit from that fee. Why pay two dumping taxes? But litterers give law enforcement many chances to fine them, to get more revenues. Since revenues from litter fines are not celebrated, must be a small amount vs. the opportunity.

The Obama administration has been nothing but a roadblock when states have tried to enact legislation to stop illegal immigration claiming it's federal. Now that states are making pot legal which also conflicts with federal law, nothing from Obama. I guess if you're a law breaker, it's all good. .

That "Seasons Greetings" sign has been there every Christmas for years. Why are you just now starting to complain about it? There is no "War on Christmas"! Your remote must be stuck on Fox News.

I just wanted to say thanks for all the good work the Salvation Army does and thank all the red kettle bell ringers. Merry Christmas!

If every driver backed up on Jerry Jones would begin blowing their horns then maybe something would be done about this traffic mess.

One of the differences between liberals and conservatives is this: liberals think all money is the government's, and that your earnings are just an “allowance.” Conservatives understand that the money you earn is yours and that the Government gets an allowance from you.

To the lady in El Toreo Tuesday night. Your child was obnoxious. I hope you enjoyed your two magaritas and text fest while your child disrupted the entire restaurant and hit me in the back of the head repeatedly.

The high amount of red lights in Valdosta is due to the poor quality of drivers in Valdosta. Having to put a red light on Gornto for people to turn out off old Wood Valley is proof.

    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.

    I smell something even worse than the Withlacoochee River. A big tax increase to help pay for all the lawsuits. Someone needs to pay for this and it isn't the citizens of Lowndes County.
