— My wife wanted to go somewhere where we could get away from people and have some peace and quiet. I suggested that we spend a week at the new industrial park but she would not go for that.
— Thank you cowards of Griffin. With your words of hate towards our president, you are helping our cause. Lots of people do not want to be around anyone who hates like you do. By the way, those people you rag on about are repugs.
— I hear so many statistics about our prison population based on race. I wish someone would do a study to show what percentage of inmates came from broken homes, did not attend church, or were born in to families receiving social welfare while the parents did nothing to contribute to society. This will be a much better explanation of our prison population than anything to do with race.
— Yet another Obama commuter train has been announced, the DesertXpress. They think that people bound for Lass Vegas will pull off the interstate in Victorsville, Calif. to ride the last 100 miles to Las Vegas on a high-speed train at the cost of $100 per ticket. Why would anyone in their right mind do something this stupid? This is just like the crazy leadership of this fair county are trying to shove such a project down our throats. How many of these fiascoes are the Obama regime proposing? They are everywhere.
— If anyone was thinking of voting for Obama, you should read Diana West’s article in the April 8 edition of The Griffin Daily News, where Steven Chu, the Secretary of Energy told the Wall Street Journal in 2008, that Obama said “somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the level that it is in Europe” which is about $9 a gallon. This is what our great president is doing for the working people of the U.S.
— Please do not complain about your taxes going up when you will have a chance in July to vote against a 1 percent sales tax increase but many of you have not bothered to register and many of those registered will not bother to vote even though you can vote early and be in and out in less than five minutes.
— Whether we use the old high school graduation formula or the new formula the facts remain the same — Spalding County’s graduation rate is absurdly low. Where do the dropouts think they will get a job and who is going to pay their way? Those social handouts and food stamps aren’t going to last for ever.
— Where is the SPLOST money for dirt road paving? This is an example of promises made by our county government. I guess the county manager spent it all on the new Senior Center and still didn’t have enough money. It would be interesting to know how every dime of the SPLOST money has been spent. Concerning SPLOST, do you trust these local politicans both city and county to spend your hard-earned money?
— The Griffin-Spalding County School System’s graduation rate dropped to 58.8 percent. Maybe the school members and other leaders that recently complained about negative articles in My Two Cents along with Gen. Jones, the school superintendant should worry about the poor performance of our school kids. This rate of graduation is quite negative.
— Why do the pharmacy workers have to be so staple happy?
