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.

    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.

Seems like the right time to return.
Abolish summer recess. Make school year-round.
