Rant & Raves for Wednesday, November 28, 2012

VALDOSTA — To the raver that is happy that Obama is back in the White House, just wondering when the last time you held a job or paid taxes or health insurance? The answer is probably haven’t that would explain why you wanted him for four more. You must be part of the “Give me more” liberals.

When you watch a news channel that is censored by the government, did I happen to mention CNN, then you only hear what they want you to. Try watching Fox or the Blaze and get the real story about the lies, deception, and cover up in your White House. Open your eyes and your mind.

The Bible reveals that the early church never demanded the giving of tithes. They made collections of money to share with the believers in need. Does your pastor return the money to you? No, he takes it all and gives himself 90 percent or more of every dime and a tiny portion goes to some worthy cause of some sort to make it look OK, but the early church never did this.

The Valdosta City School system has set up a great tool called Parent Portal for us to keep up with our children’s grades, but it is useless if the teachers do not input the grades until the end of the nine weeks. I do my job as a parent to make sure my child follows the rules and does what is required of him/her in class, so I am asking the same of you.

We need to pass an ordinance that bums can only beg on church property, with written permission from the church. If none of the many churches don’t want them begging on their property, the police take the bums out of town and remind them that Valdosta is the third poorest city in the U.S. Go beg in a wealthy town.

    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.

    For every scientist you bring forth that says there is such a thing as global warming, I’ll bring two that says it is a myth.

    I have a tip for the local restaurants who sell breakfast pastries and such. You open at 5 a.m. If your entire menu is not ready by 6 a.m. (or even 6:30), you need to reschedule your cooks. When you don’t have what we want, we do not come back. We take our business elsewhere. Use this info to improve yours businesses.

    Thanks to the gentleman who stopped to help me change my tire on a bridge. I was trying to get my daughter to the doctor. Thanks to him, I was only five minutes late.

    This town kills me. You expect to have your sewage problem that runs into the river, police and fire protection, road repairs and new paving, etc., without paying for it. Your taxes are nowhere near the taxes in many Northern states. Shaking my head, y’all.

    You can enjoy a “wonderful” meal anywhere if you pay enough. Money talks.

    A rave for the VDT editor who prints data from both sides of the global warming debate. Cal Thomas points out that global cooling is ignored by substituting computer model data instead of actual temperature data. Evidence tampering is a crime and these “deniers” should be prosecuted. Many nations ignore and refuse to participate in the “global warming” scam to transfer wealth from industrialized nations to developing nations.

    Pay attention all residents of Lowndes County (including the cities). We voted for SPLOST, now they are raising our taxes anyway, instead of cutting back wasteful spending. Now it appears that the school board is joining in on wasting our tax money by raising the school tax for all residents. I suggest everyone start becoming an educated voter and find out what your candidate stands for before you cast your vote.
