“Shame on a local store for raising pet food prices. How are seniors going to take care of our pets? We haven’t gotten a raise at all.”

“Now teachers are being required to work on a Saturday. Teachers have families too!”

“Bullying happens at all ages. Just come to city hall when the council members are being rude to employees or belittling them, or on a council meeting day. They are nothing but bullies! The employees are disgusted!”

“Are you over 50, educated, experienced and qualified for an advertised job? Super, but don’t apply for a job anywhere in Liberty County or pretty much anywhere else in this region unless it is what is considered and “old person’s job” like a greeter at Walmart. I think I’ll take my tax money someplace else very soon.”

“The Bible says to “love thy neighbor.” Chick-fil-A is not loving thy neighbor if thy neighbor wants chicken on Sunday.”

“I am a Chick-fil-A team member with a need for some help. Ever since the demand for us to be open on Sunday, our store has been seriously considering it. I am asking for the people of this town to rally behind me and help stop this from happening. Please. #ClosedOnSunday.”

“I wonder how much money Buddy Carter has gotten from big pharma? Does he profit from the opioid epidemic?”

“I wish we could have a dollar for every lie Donald Trump has said put in a fund that could be used to wipe out the national debt.”

“I was taken back when a Republican congressman said Donald Trump does not lie, he just uses anomalies. Wow!”

If chick-fil-A wants to close on Sunday, then let them. It is their prerogative! There are enough restaraunts and retail stores open on Sunday to acommidate these people in dire straits for a chicken sandwich! If the company is willing to close for one day so employees make go to church themselves or spend time with their families, let them!

I think Chick-Fil-A needs to be open to serve the people of this town. Sell your sandwiches, not your religion.

Hey r2d20 Chick-Fil-A nor anyone one else owes you a living or accommodation in this world. A business is owned by the ones who started it and have a right to be open or closed whenever is in the best interest of them, their employees and the community. Want a chicken sandwich make your own or go buy chicken already for you to pick up at places like Walmart, Krogers or any other chicken place in town that is open.

Hinesville Chick-Fil-A stay closed just as the owners want it that started this business. You make plenty of money of us from Monday to Saturdays.

Don't cave in to these folks who feel life is all about them and we should or do own them a life. Respect your employees especially those with families and who want to have Sundays off to be able to spend with family and worshipping in church of there choice.

The heathens can go visit your establishment the other 6 days of the week. Its there prerogative not to go to church on Sunday or spend time at home fellowshipping with each other. They cannot and should not be allowed to dictate that others work on Sunday just because they are to damn lazy to cook there own chicken and make themselves a sandwich. --edited.

Regarding bullying within city government. Unfortunately I have seen it myself personally at some of these meetings but I have to also say that there are many good city employees and/or elected officials working for us. With that said I have also seen and witnessed at least one sitting city council person do bullying in there own district with individuals and a person like this does not need to be representing us and folks are now seeing that person for who and what they are and I suspect they will not be re-elected when the time comes for it to happen again.

For CITY EMPLOYEES...regarding bullying within the ranks with co-workers or any elected city official. THE CITY HAS AN "ETHICS COMMITTEE" where you can file complaint's with. Make use of it. The one thing I have found out is though that the city council appoints the ethics committee or votes on them but I have not yet found out in light of this who does one file an ethics charge against a sitting city council person if there is an issue or compliant against them. It states ethics committed is selected by sitting city council members and investigates issues but then turns around and gives recommendations back to city council and that is not good. What good is this process if the very people put on ethics committee are there because the city council voted them there, but later on something is filed against a sitting city council person what recommendations will be sent to them and will they voted fairly to remedy the issue or will they dismiss it and move on. There has to be "checks and balances" to where city council is held accountable to someone else then back to themselves. Maybe I read it wrong but that is how I understand it.
