— To the My Two Cents contributor who said that liberals should turn to Jesus: You should become a pagan. Then, maybe you would not be such an arrogant fool.
— I love sports but I get tired of the Olympics. Are there any manly Olympic sports at all? I don’t want to watch those gymnasts prance around like fairies and I don’t like seeing those sissy divers in their Speedos. And who in their right mind wants to watch badminton and ping-pong? I want to watch real sports.
— Dancing is a sin, regardless of where you have it or how old you are. I think it’s a travesty the county allows the senior center to have those wild line dances.
— Maybe someone can help me with this. The poll worker couldn’t. I voted on the Democratic ticket on July 31. There were questions on the Democratic ticket, that I thought should have been voted by all voters, not just Democratic voters, and on the Republican ticket, the same problem.
— Kaye, that was classy.
— If you don’t like gays, you better plan to stay out of heaven, because Jesus does not discriminate.
— I was watching an event in the Olympics where a horse was going through a course and jumping over obstacles. I don’t think it is right for horses to be in the same Olympics as humans. They should compete in a separate Animal Olympics.
— I was listening to an interview the other day with an Atlanta city councilman who said that he didn’t want Chick-fil-A in Atlanta because it would cause problems in the community. Thank goodness he doesn’t want Chick-fil-A in Atlanta because it doesn’t fit in with all the adult novelty stores, adult video stores, strip clubs and liquor stores up there.
— Well, actually, chickens lay eggs all the time (fertilized or not) and the fertilized eggs are the ones we can’t eat. So really, these fast-food companies would benefit from same-sex chicken couples. It’s pretty clear what this country needs is for its citizens to stop thinking about marriage and start getting their hands dirty.
— The Constitution protects us against self-incrimination, but when people “take the fifth” most of us assume they do that because they are guilty. We all know that Romney is extremely wealthy, pays a lower tax rate than hardworking Americans, and sends his money off shore to avoid paying taxes, so what is he hiding in the other tax reports? Must be very bad.
— “Turn out the lights, the party is over” should be the swan song for you liberal Democratic politicans after your butt-kicking defeat on the T-SPLOST.
— The only real sports are baseball, football and basketball. Unless there is a chance you will break a bone while playing it, it is not a real sport.
— Maybe there was a small change in our local political offices that indicates the people do not want another airport. Also the T-SPLOST defeat should show the remaining incumbents they should forget about the unneeded and unwanted airport.
— It’s not that hard to define a yard sale: the selling of mostly used items in an area zoned as residential. Limit it to no more than two weekends in a quarter with temporary signage posted no more than 10 days per sale and County BOC, there’s your ordinance.
— The Spalding County Board of Assessors must have their heads buried in the sand or elsewhere.
— Property values everywhere have declined greatly, except in Spalding County. According to them, the assessments here have mostly increased. Wonder how they come up with their figures? It can’t be according to sales figures as sales have been way down and it has been a buyer’s market. Every property owner in Spalding County needs to appeal their assessments and try to get heads un-buried.
— Every day is National Intolerance Day in My Two Cents.
— I have property in two neighboring counties and they voluntarily reduced mine and others’ property values to be in line with decreased property values across the state. What did Spalding County do? They increased all five of my properties here, which were already assessed much higher than market value for the past few years.
— School is almost back. Have a great year. Stay away from drama-filled people and choose your friends wisely.
— Punishing hardworking, successful, rich people by raising their taxes still won’t be enough to satisfy the so-called “needy” people who just sit back and wait for someone else to do everything for them. Why even waste time trying that?
— People who are prostitutes, drug addicts, and alcoholics, and who constantly make bad decisions, expecting for someone else to always fix what they mess up, do not fall under the category of “needy.” Some of our current government leaders have failed to realize this.
