The Valdosta Daily Times

-- — You are many times more likely to be killed by someone using a cell phone while driving than by a rifle of any type. So, when are you liberals going to start calling for cell phone bans?

I'm sorry; call me stupid. But can someone please explain to me how someone riding in a taxi can get a ticket from the police?

My Christmas decorations are still up. It has nothing to do with commercialism, nor does it have anything to do with trying to prolong the season, prove a point or anything else some of you people can come up with. I simply haven't had the time or energy to take it down. Should you find yourself with nothing to do one day, please come over and I'll let you take everything down and put it away.  

When will people understand that buying gas once a week will not lower gas prices? Why not sit at home for two or three weeks? Laughable.

Everyone needs to fill up on Friday and not buy gas the rest of the week." Really? Think.

While the ranter had good advice for VSU students, all people of all ages need to do that. Another thought: let's all of us, including the law enforcers, obey the posted 35 mph speed limit on Patterson and Oak Streets.

Civility among all age groups and economic groups is at an all time low! Be nice.

The officer gives a ticket to the passengers of a taxi? Something is fishy with your story. Maybe the Taxi driver got the ticket. If the driver broke the law then he/she gets a ticket. I am sure there is some law or rule that states that if a taxi is pulled over by the law, they have to stop the meter.

Has it ever occurred to you that not only is the economy going over the fiscal cliff but this country is also. Thanks to our moral decay. Schools do not teach morals for what ever reason. l would guess many parents don't either and we can forget about the politicians and government setting an example.

I would like to give a big thank you to the Remerton Police Officer that stopped with me on the side of the road, when he was off the clock and on his way home, outside of his jurisdiction! Thanks Officer D. Sinclair!

It is so important to have renters or homeowners insurance. That little bit each month will save a lot of heartache if your home has a fire, burglary or flood.
