— Is there not any good Christian music anymore like Vestal Goodman, Johnny Cook or the Florida Boys? I can’t listen to these so-called Christian radio stations because it’s not Christian music, it’s pure rock ’n’ roll. You can’t mix the devil’s music with sacred music, it’s a bold-faced sin.
— “Build it and they will come,” was the punchline in the fictional movie “Field of Dreams” but we now have city and county commissioners that think spending millions of taxpayer dollars on a Field of Dreams airport to go along with the Field of Dreams industrial park is a smart way to run a government.
— Has anyone thought about creating a wild animal safari park at the new industrial park? This would attract tourists and create local jobs. And, the wild animals would eat the grass, so there would not be any additional mowing costs at the property.
— Why do we have inmates in the Spalding County Jail waiting for one to two years and over for their case to come to court? What is the holdup? Is our court system so slow that they cannot be processed within one year?
— If the T-SPLOST passes, will all those new jobs be given to outsiders? That’s what happened with Sun City.
— Will we have the business to support a new airport? No. Henry County doesn’t need an airport to draw new business. What are we doing wrong? A new airport in Spalding County will be used primarily for recreational aircraft. Do we really want all those small aircraft buzzing around over our homes?
— I have a message for all American citizens involving both local and the presidential elections. Get out and go vote. If you want to have a say-so on who will be leading this nation for the next few years, I suggest that you go vote.
— Be extremely picky when you go to the polls this year. Do some research on the candidates. Vote for someone who has Christian values and morals, who will protect our rights and abide by the U.S. Constitution, and who will do what is best for our country.
— I am so sick of liberals who are trying to take away the Christian values, traditions and rights that have made the United States the great nation it is today. Christians need to take a stand and go out and vote this year and put the right people in office.
— I would like to congratulate the people in this community who do more than just talk, but actually get things done. We need more people like that.
— Do everything you can to protect our right to keep and bear arms. It is stated in our Constitution. Don’t put anyone in office who thinks that they can go against the U.S. Constitution and take this right away from us.
— Funny how Commissioner Gilreath mentioned the school SPLOST expiring in three years as a way to convince a “yes” vote on the T-SPLOST. Wasn’t that the argument used for passing the previous one? While it did expire when the term was up, there was another voted in to take its place.
— I think it’s wonderful of the fith-grade Anne Street teachers to offer to meet with parents to explain the new curriculum standards. I hope every parent attends. It takes concerned teachers and involved parents to make our school system a success.
— On the sample ballot shown in the GDN, the Three Rivers District has a comment on the ballot that is promoting that the tax is going to guarantee jobs. How can they put that on the ballot right before the question of yes or no? This can’t be legal. I have never before seen politicking on the ballot itself.
— T-SPLOST to last 10 years. What a joke. These projects are not self-supporting. They will need another tax and another to keep these things open if we, the voters, are fooled to let them even get started.
— Since the year 2000, there have been 18,000 suicide attacks by Muslims. We are susposed to be tolerant of this so-called religion. No, never, they kill babies, children, women and innocent people. Probably 95 percent of these suicide bombings have been against civilians.
— I am so thankful that the Boy Scouts of America and Chick-fil-A are standing strong against same-sex marriage, and I’m truly sorry that the president of the United States and some Christian denominations don’t have the courage to do the same.
— I have to laugh when I read these comments from the right-wing zealots. They hear something on the Fox News Channel, then they send it to My Two Cents, thinking that they are brilliant. Simply put, you are intellectual midgets who are incapable of producing an original thought.
