— To the person celebrating their one-year anniversary of leaving Griffin: I’m sorry you got your widdle feelings hurt, but thank you ever so much for leaving.
— I read in the newspaper that tickets will cost $10 for the Griffin-Spalding football game. Last year the tickets had a coupon for a free taco, but the ticket takers would not give me back my ticket stub. So, I didn’t get my free taco. I hope this does not happen again.
— The people who are for the T-SPLOST remind me of mindless zombies who can’t think for themselves and must obey their masters. Wake up people, it’s time to put a stop to this wasteful spending of taxpayers’ money. Vote no on T-SPLOST.
— I think Griffin should attract several businesses that do not need parking for corporate jets. That way, they could use the existing airport. Vote no on T-SPLOST.
— Why would anyone, other than local officials and politicians, want more taxes? Griffin has the highest unemployment and worst business environment. T-SPLOST is not the answer. Maybe a city and county with incentives to attract small businesses. New taxes don’t go away.
— Spalding County citizens, remember that you can vote early through July 27. Take advantage of this opportunity. Don’t wait until the very last minute if you have time to vote now.
— I’m not a fan of Obamacare. It’s not the president’s or the government’s job to take care of people in need. It is the job of Christians, churches and the community. You know the people in your church and community way more than the government does.
— Obama’s plan to raise rich people’s taxes is non-biblical and very foolish. Punishing success and hard work will not help the poor. Nowhere in the Bible does Jesus approve of the redistribution of wealth.
— The Constitution was written 200 years ago by a bunch of farmers who owned slaves. If we are going to continue to follow that document, we should update it to make it relevant to the year 2012.
— All you get from the county manager is the county can’t afford to pave dirt roads. What about SPLOST money? Was it all used for the senior center? Tell me what is wrong with this picture? It’s a shame people who live in the county have to ride by and see a senior center being built so some seniors can entertain themselves.
— Brilliant idea. Griffin. Rebuild, restore and revive the Fairmont area and Meriwether Street so the people living there can destroy it yet again with crime and vandalism. Then they will demand help from citizens outside of those communities to rebuild, restore and revive it for them once again in five years. Brilliant, I say.
— The president is honoring Ramadan, but refuses to honor the National Day of Prayer for Americans. What does this say to Christians? If you believe in Jesus as your Lord and savior, he’s saying he doesn’t care for you. I’ll pray that he is convicted in his heart and comes to the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
— I totally agree with Ronda Rich’s beliefs about the King James Bible. If the King James Bible was good enough for the apostle Paul, it’s good enough for me.
— I can’t believe someone would believe that “the Fairmont neighborhood is a nutritional desert, with fresh fruits and vegetables not readily available to residents.” They have as much access as anyone who shops in our county. I’ve yet to be asked to show proof of my address to buy produce at any store here.
— I wonder how many other counties in Georgia included a new airport as one of their transportation projects in their transportation SPLOST.
— One of the T-SPLOST projects is to “improve” the North Hill Street corridor to Sun City to downtown Griffin. Why? The Sun City residents are not going to come down Hill to Griffin. There’s nothing to come to. That part of Hill comes through the worst area in the county. They are going to the new stores and restaurants on Georgia 20 in Henry County. Vote no on July 31.
— Charles Jones told the Rotary Club that “The whole idea of this transportation act is to improve mobility for all citizens.” But my neighbors and I don’t own airplanes, so how does a new airport “improve our mobility”?
— I’ve heard two different discussions and promotions of T-SPLOST, but none of the promoters of the T-SPLOST want to discuss the analysis of the T-SPLOST conducted by an adjunct scholar with the Georgia Public Policy Foundation, and a transportation analyst with the Reason Foundation.
