— If a meteor hit Griffin, it would be an improvement.
— I read the Falcons were interested in the Notre Dame linebacker with the “make-believe” girlfriend. That should work since the Falcons want a “make-believe” needed new stadium.
— Anyone who is seen carrying a growler should automatically be kicked out of whatever church they belong to.
— Now the new senior center has been built with SPLOST funds from all citizens of Spalding County. Just who gives the NAACP the right and authority to set rules and regulations for the center? It is time for government authority and not a private, non-government group to take control.
— An Irish slaughterhouse has been shut down for labeling horse meat as beef. I think some of that meat may be in our local markets.
— To the woman who complained about men not helping her change a flat tire: This is 2013, not 1963. Women are considered equal to men today, and women are taking jobs away from men. If you could not change the tire yourself, you should have called a tow-truck company.
— Looks like Walker-Harps and the NAACP are so tuned in to “entitlements” that they think they should not pay for anything. I didn’t know that the NAACP paid for the senior center.
— Dublin has canceled this year’s Redneck Games. Perhaps our local leaders can look into hosting Redneck Games in Griffin. It would be a perfect fit.
— I thought when the decision was made to put the senior center at this location that economical use would be made of the strong walls of the existing building. However, everything was demolished, not remodeled. Now, I understand the strong, well-built brick buildings in the units on Meriwether Street, $12.9 million? And $14 to $22 million will be demolished and remodeled. How is this logical?
— We will build our homes around a pre-existing airport, knowing full well there is an airport in the area. Years later, we will have a cause to move the airport into someone else’s back yard. Makes sense. This is one city commissioner’s cause and for years has gotten her elected.
— I am a male over 40 with a ponytail and for those that don’t like it, they should think of it as an arrow pointing to the area they can kiss.
— If you didn’t like Jane Fonda’s trip to Hanoi, you have to hate Dennis Rodman’s trip to North Korea.
— When is White History Month?
— I guess the president wants everybody to understand the cuts they’re making is Congress’ fault. “Wrong,” since he’s had control of the White House, he’s run up $6 trillion in added debt, and wants people to think $85 billion in cuts will ruin the country. Some of you people who have never done nothing expect the government to continue to support you at taxpayers’ expense. Dictator, I think so.
— I would like to join AMBUCS, but I don’t know if they accept people who are not deer hunters.
— It is a travesty there are fees with the new senior center. It should be free.
— God’s judgment is going to come down on all these people with tattoos and long hair. It’s pure sin and these people need to straighten up before it’s too late.
— I’m depressed. The Redneck Games has been canceled, and I don’t know what I am going to do for my vacation now.
— Life in Griffin is great. These negative people get on my nerves.
— People around here complain about there not being any jobs in Griffin, but then they don’t want development. What a bunch of gizmos.
— Christianity should be made the official religion of America like it used to be.
— Members of the Vatican Army, who protect the pope, wear stylish, colorful uniforms. It would be nice if the U.S. Army would switch to something similar to that.
— It is immoral for the county commissioners to charge a fee to use the new senior center. The taxpayers already paid for this facility with a special-purpose sales tax.
— I would like to suggest that the Development Authority use the success of the new Kroger as a marketing tool to lure other businesses, like Kmart, Sears or Penney’s, to Spalding County. I don’t know why or how Kroger decided to build such a beautiful, huge grocery store here, but surely if other businesses knew how well received it is, they may just decide to open here too.
— The $85 billion in budget cuts that are being proposed by President Obama are necessary so that money will be available to provide free medical care for illegal immigrants and the minorities in this country.
— Something has become a big laugh and it’s time for it to go and that is “American Idol.”
