— Once again, these so-called “Christians” are preparing to celebrate a pagan holiday. When are we going to wake up and realize that Easter is a pagan holiday and that nowhere in the Bible are we commanded to celebrate it? We also are not commanded to celebrate Christmas.
— So, Elena Kagan says the uninsured increase my health premiums by $1,000 per year. My wife and I pay $8,000 a year now. Does that mean if this law is ruled constitutional, that my premiums will drop by $1,000 per year? I think not. If anything, it will increase and benefits will be lowered.
— Is Justin Bieber alive or dead? Maybe he is still living, and it is just his career that is dead.
— Why is the Development Authority taking bids to cut the grass at all our empty industrial parks? We have a jail overrun with able-bodied prisoners. Put them on a mower and give them a weed-eater and make them earn their keep. While you’re at it, the jail has a large field. They can work and grow one heck of a garden to feed themselves.
— To each and every one of the senior citizen haters out there, may I remind you that civil rights are not limited by age. I have just as much right to shop, drive and eat as you do. I am still working in the same profession after 47 years and fully intend to continue as long as I am able. I have paid more than my fair share for the rights I enjoy.
— What would you say to an overweight woman who bought $80 of food on her EBT card and then bought $40 in lottery tickets? I know she is stupid, but the return on the EBT card is $1,000 percent. It cost her zero. The lottery ticket cost is a return of 40 percent or less, but the attitude is “I may win.” The lottery is really a tax on the stupid.
— Read Michelle Malkin on Page A4 on March 24, 2012. You will see why Obama is so popular, but should be unpopular. He is paying companies for pond scum and algae to make fuel. I thought this was the American way, for companies to develop, test and sell successful products. Obama is the opposite. He gives money away to bet on horses.
— City of Griffin: If you buy your water meter when you build your house and sometimes do not use any water, then why is there a $13.71 charge, or $164.32 per year? This is a “got you.” They should pay us for not using water, but it is the reverse.
— We sure are spending a lot of money and time and interruption to downtown traffic in order to save the Sixth Street bridge that just had to be torn down because it wasn’t any good anymore.
— The seniors now want indoor plumbing in the new senior center, rather than using porta-potties. Is there just no limit to the extras that seniors expect? Next, they’ll be asking for electric lights, rather than bringing their own candles. We need to draw the line somewhere.
— Why is William Wilson being so coddled? What does he have on the BOC? Really, wasting my tax dollars to have an ice cream social for one year of service during working hours? What a waste of time and money. He is a prime example of what’s wrong with our government. What’s worse is to flaunt it on the GDN front page.
— I still promise that when I retire, I will not go to the grocery store, restaurant, bank, barbershop, post office, et cetera, from noon to 1 p.m. weekdays or at 5 p.m. weeknights. If you are retired or otherwise unemployed, please have a heart and do your errands and eating out when working folks are working. We don’t have a choice.
— I sure do miss the greeters at Wal-Mart. Does it really save enough money to warrant losing the one thing that made the store special?
— The Bible says that the guests stated that the water Jesus turned to wine was the best wine. Try going to a party where wine is flowing and then serve grape juice. It will not be called the best wine, You are the one that does not know your Bible.
— With the current economy, is this the time for another SPLOST? A city commissioner would have you believe some are against progress, but the fact is we are taxed out. It’s priceless to see this city commissioner calling names toward those that may disagree on more spending.
