— Five businesses were cited for violating the gambling laws of Georgia. Arrests were made at these businesses for commercial gambling. Someone step forward and prove me wrong, but I guarantee you that somewhere in the past at least two of these businesses have been cited for selling alcohol to underage folks.
— Mayor Bloomberg does not care about people being fat. He says if you must have an 18-ounce sweet drink you can buy two nine-ounce ones. His proposal to outlaw large sweet drinks means the city will collect more sales tax if people buy two small ones.
— The people who oppose the T-SPLOST don’t want progress for Spalding County. They probably live on a dirt road and walk around barefoot.
— I see where Dale Earnhardt Jr. won a NASCAR race. He must have been racing against a turtle and a snail.
— The title of the play “Ten Little Indians” is very offensive to me. It should be changed to “Ten Height-Challenged Native Americans.”
— I recently watched some European Championships soccer matches. Before each match, each player comes out to the field while holding the hand of a young boy. It looks a little perverted for a grown man to be holding the hand of a young boy he does not know. Of course, it’s Europe. What else would you expect?
— Gas prices are down. Thank you President Obama.
— Our tax system is unfair to the person who fixes and keeps up his or her property. If you improve your property, your taxes go up, a good homeowner reward, not so. The good homeowner reward goes to the homeowners who have vacant and unlivable properties. They see their home values go down and their taxes decrease.
— Senior citizens in the county must have different priorities than those seniors in the city. We don’t have to be entertained, such as a senior center. Most of us voted for you to be entertained, but we still live on a dirt road. We have our families and gardens to keep us busy.
— The cost of the senior center could have paved a lot of dirt roads in Spalding County. I’m a senior in the county, and I don’t need to be entertained, but would like to have my dirt road paved. Again, the county puts the seniors in the city ahead of the seniors in the county.
— People who are complaining about dogs will not have to complain long, because coyotes are killing them. Keep your dogs in at night.
