Do any of you wonder what the youth of Murray County thinks? It bugs the hell out of me knowing that no one in this county gives a crap about what we think. I thought we were the future, so why won't anyone listen to us. Instead of listening to the corruption of our "officials" listen to us. We live here too. I bet none of you know that half of our goals consist of getting out of Murray County & never coming back. Sometimes, I wish people would just open their eyes. We might be "underage" but we're not too young to realize what happens. I think it's time for a change. A change for Murray County.

I agree completely. We're not all back woods rednecks who have intercourse with goats when we're not working in carpet mills or hunting.

You agree , But you start the same old thing .Rednecks ,people that work in carpet mills and hunts . What is wrong with working in a carpet mill .At least they are working . Is that a sin ?
People have hunted from the begaining of time .They eat what they kill .And as far as rednecks , you just had to say they have intercourse with goats . How do you know this . Is this what you do ? But you agreed that we need to build Murray Co .up . You are a real jurk . Go back to your goat pen and do what you are good at .

wow.
1) its jerk not jurk.
2) I actually know of rednecks who have intercourse with goats & cats. maybe you do too.
That's all people care about here is hunting. That's it. Carpet mills are killing us. Even though those are the only jobs. Get real, there's no future in those but hard labor and low wages. Maybe you should stay off this discussion if you have no idea what we're even talking about. You're just like everyone else around here. Close minded and not willing to evolve with the rest of the world. Well times are changing, so change with it old timer.

Had you reather the people go on welfare than work in the carpet mills .The carpet mills are all we have .Is that the peoples fault ?
If you know of people having sex with animals in Murray Co. why have"nt you turned them in ? Its against the law to abuse animals .How could you sleep at night if you know the people that has sex with aminals ? Talk about close minded ,or is it your family or friends
having sex with the animals ?Is that the reason you have not told someone at the sheriffs office .I don"t think the good folks in Murray Co. are going to go along with this at all .Eather you are sick or just plain stupid knowing about this and not doing anything about..

I didn't make this discussion for two people to agrue about having sex with animals. Now if you both could just stop, you guys are missing the big picture of why i posted this discussion in the first place. Yea, the carpet mills are bad. We're all slaves to it pretty much. Maybe if Murray County would just get on its feet, more businesses might move in and help out. It's a shame that this place is wasting away. It's not a bad place to live, just bad people that live with you.

This is the reason I am so glad I went back to work over in Dalton ga. I can get all my running around like the drug store, grocery store, etc. and not have to put up with all of this stupidity in Chatsworth ga. You can't even go to the drug store or dollar store without there being a lot of stupids waiting on you.

YOU MUST BE THE KIND OF TRASH THAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT IN THE FIRST PLACE. You don't listen. I didn't post that to get you to talk about having sex with animals, i didn't agree either. I just said he was talking about the truth minus the animal part. I know for a fact this county is bs. I was raised in it and currently live here but i got out right when my most influencial part of my life and I realized how bad Murray County really is. Murray County took my father from me. Now, instead of destroying it like i would want to, I want to build it up. But no one can do anything with people like you & that's why mine and half of Murray's youth goal is to get the hell out of here.

Well put Dan. I'd like to add that a good education consists of not just schooling. Young people need to learn trades. The market is saturated with computer workers. Their will always be a need for mechanics, plumbers, electricians, AC & Heating workers....These real world trades can get you jobs about anywhere. You can move to where construction is going on. If I was younger that is what I would do.

I, unlike the rest, have a good head on my shoulders. I've never been drinking, smoking or any of that. In fact, my basic training is coming up soon and I'll be an Army Medic. It's just discouraging that no one expects you to do anything great because of where you live. Here, because I'm a young lady, people believe I'll never make it anywheres especially not the army. Trust me, I'm doing my best in school, it's my ticket out

You can call me trash if you want to , But the comment someone made about abuseing animal here in Murray Co . and not doing anything about it makes me mad . This is not building Murray Co. up .This is a black eye for our county .
No matter where you go there will be people that goes hunting .
If you want to help Murray Co. to become a better place you will have to start respecting the people that live here .When you are young you think you can do great things, but thinking and doing are two different things . I wish you could bring in big companies to Murray Co.I wish everyone here could have a good job that pays big money but I think it will take someone with lots of money to come here and start new companies , but I can"t see that happening right now .

Best of luck to you

One thing is the Chamber of Commerce . They are getting paid to bring businesses in this county .
The only thing they have done in years was waste money . We get businesses that come in one month and gone the next .The only thing we will ever get is more Dollar Stores .Dollar Stores are going up every where .Did the people that own the chain of Dollar Stores come to the Chamber of Commerce or did the Chamber of Commerce go to them .My bet is they come to them .Do we need a Chamber of Commerce ? I think not .Why should we have to pay them to party , take trips and sit on their tails and we get -0-.

I was once young and I know what you are saying. Not that I am almost 64 I realize that I have traveled roads that you are yet to travel. Nothing will educate you any better that first hand mistakes. I consider myself lucky to be alive these days. I used to be a very wreckless driver in the worst kind of a way. I would take off spinning and stop sliding. I would hold my car on 120 mph for several miles at a time passing everything in sight day in and day out. I had no fear even when I lost control and spinned around four times before coming to a stop. I thought it was funny then. I laughed at the people that witnessed my doing this because it scared them so bad. My girlfreind, now my wife for 44 years finally talked me into slowing down. I was not a drinker or I would not be here today. I look back and think how stupid it was that I endangered other peoples lives the way I did. Outrunnig the law was one of my favorite things to do back then. Looking back, I thought there was no one smarter than I was. As it turns out, there was no one dumber than I was. Brains keep on maturing till the mid twenties like it or not. My advice is to listen to elders and take heed in what they are trying to teach you. I have witnessed a lot of children getting killed because they didn't listen. Stay off alcohol, ciggeretts and drugs. Drive carefully like you would like others to drive. Respect will take you a long way. I have traveled to a lot of places and as it turns out, Murray County is the best place I have found hands down. It is home to me. Corrupt leaders are everywhere and Murray County is no exception. You see powerful people usually abuse their power when it comes to family, lust and money. That's just the way it is.

I knew a young guy from Murray County. I helped him learn guitar cords, taught him how to play golf and helped him gut his first deer. He is no a well known song writer with an number one hit and a number 2 hit and is still writing songs in Nashville. Being from Murray County means noghting either way. Opportunities exist reguardless where you are from.
