Rant & Raves for Friday, February 1, 2013

VALDOSTA — The recent run on ammunition has the manufacturers holding back on production intentionally! Supply and demand will drive prices up. More money! More money!

How can anyone say President Obama doesn’t understand the Constitution or knows nothing about the Second Amendment when he holds a degree from Harvard and was president of the Harvard Law Review? Maybe it’s you who doesn’t understand?

Explain why Republicans are recently so intrigued with voter fraud? Maybe they see their majority slipping away with the changing demographic. But don’t worry, the way Georgia districts are conveniently divided, this state will stay red for quite sometime.

Don’t get a dog if you can’t commit to them for life. They have hearts and become attached, then you get rid of them when you no longer want them. If you must give them away, please make sure as possible they are going to a good home. The best thing to do is charge a roaming fee to assure that more.

I want to thank the two men who work for SGB who turned around to help me with my blow out on I-75. So nice to know people do actually care. Thanks again.

A big rave for our freedom to choose among various garbage collection companies, or to litter illegally without any fear of getting caught. Adding an endless rave in advance for VDT, if they post the names and the fines of those littering our community during the endless “shaking out” of our garbage collection service.

I think Westside Elementary and the Lowndes County School System needs to modify the school zone flashing light. Having the reduced speed for such a long time is ridiculous! It flashes from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., when children can’t arrive to school until 7:30 and classes begin at 8. Same thing in the afternoon. Please take a look at this!

    Funny, the people criticizing immigrants coming here looking for a better life for their family, are only here because their ancestors immigrated here for a better life for their family.

    Of the proposed 75 million that is needed to teach the students of Lowndes County for one school year, 55 million of that goes towards salaries. I don't want to hear no complaints about teachers salaries or furloughs again.

    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!
