I have said it and said it. When election time comes, the same ole, same ole, is voted right back in.

People will complain,fuss,curse and even fight
about the ones in there, but, will turn right around and put the same ones back in.

I think the property owners have paid enough.
I am not in for raising wheel tax, but, if
something is going to be raised, I think wheel tax should, over land taxes.

If you will notice, every drug addict, pill popping, drunkard, theif,robber, dead beat etc.
Has a car.

They need to pay their part, instead of it comming from the hard working property owner, all the time. Most of them, don't own property.

I think the town of Greeneville and Greene ounty, need to cut out jobs and lower pay and go through what the rest of the people do.

We have 3 auto's and it will cost us there again.
But, at least it will get the low life's also.
When election time comes, we need to clean out, the elected officals, in the city and county.

No matter if thy are republicans or democrat.
We need change, Geene County elected officals
wants to put,the poor people out and make this a tourist town and bring in the rich.

We the people need to take back our county. The people elected, are working for us and if they are not going to do the job, then, they need to be put out. If we sit around and do nothing, change nothing, we have only ourselves to blame.

What are we going to do??????

Cocke County doesn't have a wheel tax either. Believe it or not, they're doing all right for themselves.

I vote for imposing a special tax on anyone from Florida or any point north of the Mason-Dixon Line who moved here so they could bring their big money here in the hopes of paying much lower taxes than what they would have paid where they came from. The county has to spend extra money on roads, schools and other facilities and things because they moved here--so let them pay for the privilege of living here.

Make everyone who moved here because of TennCare pay the tax increases. TennCare has killed Tennessee.

You give a good example of what those who move here for tax breaks cost the locals.

I know several that rent an the property tax increase didnt hurt the property owners of rental properties, they just passed it onto the renters. The wheel tax is not fair to some people either. I have 3 vehicles an a motorcycle and Im single. Definately not fair to me.

It's bad our taxes get raised so teachers can get raises but we don't get raises to help pay for the tax increase!

Need a deadbeat tax! So sick of them taking the money I work for and giving to the deadbeat, pill head, thieving trash.

Take all the deadbeats in jail and hire them out as mater pickers, so they earn money to pay their keep in jail and taxes. Then we wouldn't need the Mexicans here getting paid under the table and not paying taxes.

We got to get rid of the democraps and get some people in there with balls and brains to straighten this mess up.

How many "democraps" hold public office in Greene County? It's the local Republicans who have made a mess in this area, how can you blame the Democrats when it,'s the Republicans who control everything! And I think that almost all of the good old boys in office have balls, maybe we should start electing people without testicles, they don't seem to help.

Your right except who you are blaming.. I agree Democrats in office SUCK, But so do Republicans. You should have said POLITICIANS are the problem. CLEAN THE PLACE OUT. We need to start fresh and this time get some politicians that can at least do math.. But the problem is anyone with any brains would never get into politics. And that's what we have.. BRAINLESS POLITICIANS

Need to elect some working class people into our public offices. Maybe we could but they have no money to run, because they WORK for a living.

Roger Jones and Tim White "ring leaders" in getting taxes raised last year. I will agree that the Republican party is just as saturated with good old boys too. Hoot Bowers is a good old boy from way back and many favors have been done for his son. That is the classic good old boy trait -- you do me a favor and I'll to you a favor. Greene County has about favored out and that is exactly why our children have to endure extremely ignorant teachers. The county attorney is a good old boy too. As is Tim White, Roger Jones and I would add David Crum to that list as well. I can't think of one politician - Democrat or Republican - that I hold in high regard.

I don't know about balls, but a good many of the good old boys are void of a conscience.

Not only do I agree with you but I would go further to say that we now have politicians in office that no longer fear the voters. That's one I can't explain except that since no decent person seems to want to run for political office, they know they will go back in. A politician in Greene County and Greeneville equals a dishonest good old boy.

Yeah sorry, I should have said Democraps, crooks and idiots. That's pretty much a category of all our leaders in this town. It would be so easy to put a name with each category.

As for balls, none of our leaders has balls, if they did they would be coming up with tough decisions to solve the counties money trouble. Not just putting it all on tax payers, that's ball less, doesn't matter whats in between your legs.
