Rant and Raves for Wednesday, December 5, 2012

VALDOSTA — I had to wait almost 30 minutes for the ambulance to come to my house in Lake Park from Hahira the other day. What a shame SGMC.

Where are the Valdosta police from 7:15-7:45 a.m. Monday through Friday at Madison Highway and Copeland Road? The sign, next to the stop sign on Copeland Road, clearly shows you can NOT turn left. Yet, traffic backs up for all those cars and school buses that make the illegal turn.

Maybe, if the lady would stop tithing, she would have had the money to buy her own fruit cake mix. Of course, if everyone did that, the professional clergy would have to get jobs and support themselves like all the Sunday School teachers that minister the word week after week for free.

The people of Lowndes County voted NO for the SPLOST fund tax. Most of this money would have come from out-of- town shoppers.

In Lake Park, there is a constant low-pitch roaring sound, 24/7. Is it from the paper mill?

To the men in trucks that blind me because you have modified your truck, I just leave my brights on when I see you coming!

Perhaps, the graduate student was thanking President Obama for making it possible for his parents’ policy to cover him til age 26. Maybe, his parents are paying for his health insurance, and not YOU.

Congrats Valwood and VSU!

Glad to see the Girl Scouts in the parade this year! I loved the float and the girls were beautiful. I heard a woman on the float tell a little girl to look at me and tell me Merry Christmas. Thank you. And Merry Christmas to you little angels.

I think anyone that blames the President, Republican or Democrat for gas prices is a dummy. Fuel prices are a result of supply and demand, international events, our willingness to cut back, price manipulation, etc.

    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!

    Chaining a dog 24/7 is nothing short of animal cruelty. It is time for our elected officials to pass a law against it.
