I've lived in Unicoi County my whole life and I just want to say that it is a shame that it's turned into such a dirty place to live. You can't turn on the news or open the paper without seeing "METH BUST" on the front page, it is pathetic. I don't blame this on our law enforcement, they are the ones risking their lives catching these criminals. I blame it on these low-life, scum bag, poor excuse for human beings that we have living in this county. I am so tired of getting behind people that I went to school with at the register at Wal-mart with a baby on each hip, an i-phone, tattoos from head to toe, and paying with food stamps. It is ridiculous, I work for my paycheck, I wish people some other people would do the same. Government assistance is for people who actually need it. It seems like most people nowadays use and abuse the system. And can someone please tell me WHY the government now is giving people FREE cell phones.. that has TEXTING? I understand that elderly people who can't afford a cell phone may qualify for a free one but people in their 20's should not!! In my opionion, everyone who draws a government check or receives any type of assistance should be REQUIRED to take a random monthly drug test. That would stop a lot of drug use and system abuse!

The phones are "OBAMA" phones and I do agree with you. Grew up in Erwin in a better time...

Those aren't Obama phones. Do a little research. Think for yourself instead of parroting what you hear. Unless of course you don't have the tools to think. In that case, be sure to thank your Momma after she ties your shoes.

They were doing this long before Obama was in office so you may want to do your research so you don't come off looking stupid.

So we should punish the children that are on the hips of those tattooed, iPhone-carrying kids? The food is going to them, if we drug-tested all the parents, and cut off their support, the children would be left with NOTHING.
sounds good
