— Was a terrible tragedy that the medical team of volunteers in Afghanistan were murdered by the Taliban, simply because they were Christians. I hope any other medical professionals who wish to donate their time and ability to help needy people will consider doing their work in this country. There is a need here and most Americans do not hate Christians.
— What in the world do the Muslims want? Now, it seems they want to replace GMT, the world clock, with of all things, “mecca time.” Go figure. Everyone wants something and control of people’s lives. They say their clock will be so much bigger. Get outta here.
— When I hear that any politician holding public office, and the responsibility that goes with that duty, is not paying their taxes, it makes me wonder about other questionable activity. They have to know that overdue taxes are public information. If they don’t care that their lack of responsibility can be discovered, it would seem that they feel that they don’t have to follow the law like the average person.
— Gotta love those Griffin football fans. Don’t show up to support the team until they get into the semifinals, then they want to ride on their coattails and criticize coaches for things they know absolutely nothing about. These men do a great job and sacrifice more than you could ever imagine for the success of their team. Why don’t you try supporting them, or better yet, applying for their position when they are gone, and see how well you do?
— We all agree, property assessments are too high in Griffin-Spalding County. The more we give, the more they take, and I have had it with all the wasteful spending, supposedly for a better quality of life, but where is it for us law-abiding taxpayers? Quit griping and let’s get results. All of us property owners need to band together and not pay our property taxes until they are lowered. The problem with that is no one will stick together.
— OK. The comment about “M*A*S*H” and Corporal Klinger has pushed me over the edge. I have to comment. My Two Cents is nothing more than a forum to show the world the ignorance of the people in Griffin.
— I see where the city of Griffin’s Citizens’ Government Academy (that sounds impressive) is offering a 10-week course — to help citizens have a better understanding of the way the local governments work. Shucks, you don’t need 10 weeks to do that. Just go to one of the local government meetings and you will find out in about 10 minutes.
— Maybe our local officials can’t get the senior citizens center done because they are trying to communicate with each other by using the 800 MHz system.
