Rant and Raves for Wednesday, December 5, 2012

The Valdosta Daily Times

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.

I noticed a clerical error on the Times webpage. It has rant/rave listed as “news” instead of in the entertainment section.

Let’s make everyone happy. Let’s bring back President Dwight Eisenhower. We will make those that sob “I just want things like they used to be” happy. We will help the unemployed and we might even build a new interstate highway system or rail system. Dwight Eisenhower-Top tax bracket 90 percent-unemployment rate 5.5.

A big rave to the choir and leaders at First United Methodist. You bless us!
