Topix is a forum that is supposed to be used for information and reviews, etc. our topix is nothing but the fence over which neighbors gossip. Person after person posts on here about how awful Iuka or Tishomingo County is. It is awful for someone that wants to live in a bigger city atmosphere, but for people who enjoy quieter, more peaceful life, it is good. I am for anything that would help us grow and beautify the place. But instead of constantly griping, I try to do something about it. How about instead of sitting on topix, you go actually make a change for the better in your community? How about those of you on here, right now, reading this from the comfort of your home while you draw your check for the 4 kids you have that you don't take care of... At least use the monies and time you are given to do better for yourself? If everyone did that, the next generation would be better off because your kids might learn how to make an honest day's living and take pride in what they've EARNED. if everyone took responsibility for their own home and children, we would have more tax dollars to better our schools and county. I'm not saying its wrong to get government assistance at all! I'm saying its ASSISTANCE! Which is defined as the act of helping. It was designed to help those going through a hard time. Not keep you up and raise your kids. That's not assistance. That's dependence.
Sorry about the soap box, and for those struggling, getting assistance, trying to do better, I'm glad my tax dollars are going to you. But for those that sit back and try to figure out how to get more and more and more for nothing? Those are the people that are causing the decline of society and the economy. Especially in small towns where money is tight anyway. Whatever is swindled from crooked politicians or however much is kept in big bank accounts of old men with "power", it has not the drop of an impact as the current recipients of unwarranted "assistance" and that legacy that will continue with the next generation. I'm not hating, I'm jut asking everyone to step back, examine their life, and see if there is anything you can do at a personal level to help. Even if that includes getting a job, going back to school, etc.

It aggregates me that people get on here wanting to know who is sleeping with who! Who is doing what! Who is crooked! Who id drug dealing! Who's pretty! Who's not! Who's fat! Who's thin! If we cared more about people and feelings we might get back to a better world! There is just so much negative that we can't even stay positive for our kids! This page shouldn't even be legal to come up with some of the junk they come up with! We should worry about our own selves and family rather than someone else's!

I agree exactly! Put that negative energy into something positive and turn things around!

yes.. Our world is going to hell in a handbag!! We should be teaching our children better! Do we not see that our children and other children see these things and think its ok. That is why where is a system and whether its right or wrong let the system do what they are suppose to and let the read of us teach our children right from wrong.. They only know by what we teach them and they see! Its like being racists.. Our children don't know what that word is except for if we tell them... Why would we tell them everything that is wrong!! I don't go to church but i believe in god!! I don't believe a building is getting me to heaven but tying to do good the best i can and show everyone there is a better way might help!
