— Let me see, we are going to give Kroger $1.34 million in money from bonds and they are going to repay $2 million with money they would have paid in taxes over 10 years. Am I wrong or are the Spalding taxpayers building the new facility for Kroger? Stupid?
— How many SPLOST are you already paying? Don’t you think enough is enough? What did local government do before SPLOST? The answer, they governed within their means and actually had a budget.
— I read Diana West’s guest editorial (April 15) and decided that any newspaper that has the gumption to print an editorial that states that Obama’s forged birth certificate and Selective Service registration are “certainly forgeries,” obligates me to renew my subscription. All the TV media, including the ”fair and balanced” Fox News, have shut their eyes and ears to the awful truth. I had always believed that the news media kept us free and was a devotee of the concept until the last few years. But now, the GDN has raised its head as a newspaper that prints all points of view regardless of ideology and has restored my faith that there is one newspaper devoted to the concept of being “fair and balanced” to all.
— The CAVE people (Citizens Against Virtually Everything) love My Two Cents.
— I’m responding to the person who wrote that because we write about the president’s policies, we hate the president. You couldn’t be further from knowing the truth. I hate no person, but, I “do not” like what his policies are doing to this country. He and his far-left liberal friends just want us to be an entitlement society government and the sooner you figure that out the better off you’ll be. I can just about guarantee you, you never read anything about what his beliefs are about giving away to those who want something for doing nothing, period.
— Why shouldn’t the senior citizens of Spalding County be free from paying school taxes? If other Georgia counties can do it for their seniors, then why not Spalding County? It could help make up for the millage rate increase on property taxes. Even if you signed up for the senior citizen discount, you had a tax increase on your tax bill. My last tax bill, even with the discount, was the highest tax bill I’ve ever had.
— The athletic director at the University of Arkansas should be given a raise in salary for doing the right thing and firing head football coach Bobby Petrino. If this had been the head football coach at the University of Georgia, the athletic director would have said “he didn’t mean to do it” and the coach would still be the head coach at the University of Georgia.”
— To the majority of the contributors of ‘My Two Cents” who only complain and whine —don’t worry, when the brain-eating zombies take over, you are safe.
