I bet The Mountains Voice didn't show up at the SPLOST meeting tonight, did he? All talk and no action. I'd be surprised if ACOG showed up either.

Why would anyone want to go and hear all the lies Paris has to say. The man is a liar and anyone who is dumb enough to believe him is an idiot. Did you go?

Typical that the nay-sayers don't show up.
TOPIX is where you'll see them complain but they have no guts or real commitment to attend meetings.

I recently asked a neighbor who complained about something if he has ever in ten years attended a meeting. He said, "No." In my opinion, he has no voice in the matter if he can't get off his fat ass and drive to the courthouse once in ten years. I also reminded him that the commissioners office is open to the public.

It is easier to sit at home or at a computer and bitch.

Please don't confuse open and open-minded.

Why don't everyone pick up a copy of the paper written by MV and read why going to a meeting is a waste of time. When dealing with a crook and corrupt politician your time is better spent figuring out how to get him out of office and out of you pocketbook. READ THE PAPER AND THEN DECIDE

...it is safer.
Going to a meeting and standing up asking questions means intimidation and further problems down the road. It is a sad situation. Pathetic too. Can't even make honest genuine comments at a meeting because there is a fear that it will come back, in some twisted local gov. fine or suit, threats of boycotts on business, or some other form of harassment. Things will remain the same. And until someone better comes along, Lamar is what we have...It could still be worse than it is now. Oh yeah, things can get a lot worse.

This makes me laugh. Peons with no backbone worrying about imaginery payback. Face it, TOPIX posters are too chicken to show their face. Bet none of you have been to a meeting and that is why one person wants it televised. Stay in your hole and you will be buried.

The "masterpiece" publication isn't being taken seriously. People in this town know that a group has been harrassing Lamar from day one. I saw the handful of publications in a trash can at a local business. Guess that sums up what people think.

Now that right there is a smart fellow. I might add though that for the next 2 weeks solidly, I am simply focusing on more and more distribution of the 1st News Report.

How can you focus on distributing the first (and last) edition when mommy won't let you leave the house?

You are over-doing it. Can you find an original message or comment?

Are you jealous you aren't included?

Did you attend the meeting to see how many people in opposition of county government were there? I didn't think so.

I'm still questioning why all the people who are against the county and Lamar don't show up in numbers to share their thoughts.

I've read a lot of excuses but none are good enough to convince me you aren't just plain lazy.

Mountain Voice. Your publication isn't causing much of a stir since most people know the antics of ACOG and you. Those who have seen it didn't go past the first page or two before tossing it.

Of course, your fan club will commend you, David, using a dozen different screen names to give their applause.

Let me explain that to you in a way you might understand and quit asking stupid questions. There is always too many asshole who live off the county taking up all the room and the smell is so bad that the good people who are against corruption and it's kingpin Paris well we just don't come. I hope this has helped your pea brain absorb a very simple answer.
