This article didn't need the length it is not the first page placement unless the ABH has an agenda. The writers of course do. Fair and balanced reporting? Right.

If there is "hate" for Obama it has more to do with hating his approach to leadership. He is arrogant, sarcastic and devisive. He has led a NON-transparent approach to government. No other president has ever been this way. He blames others for his shortcomings.
Let's turn the question around: what is there to "like" about Obama? He has led the country down the path to socialism and has created more havoc in the economic system that most people/businesses today don't know where they stand and don't know what the future holds as we pass on to our children/grandchildren the results of selfish decision making.posted @ Thursday, March 7, 2013 - 09:32
"Demanding" access does not sound like a good strategy for "illegal aliens." They do have access to MOST of the colleges/universities in the State. It's not like they have been totally closed out. Plus, paying out of state tuition is reasonable when you really are from somewhere else.
Unfortunately, these youth have their PARENTS to blame not the state of GA. I'm not sympathetic with them "demanding" anything.
The Board of Regents policy is an appropriate one.posted @ Thursday, March 7, 2013 - 09:27
I support a strong degree of freedom with guns, but allowing them on a university campus just crosses the line in my mind. Angry students shooting professors; angry professors shooting students? Jealous students shooting others?posted @ Wednesday, March 6, 2013 - 20:57

What "lifetime achievements" have these people made? Just living that long? Their achievements should be spelled out. What have they done since their graduation?posted @ Thursday, December 27, 2012 - 12:15
The money might better be spent creating "safe rooms" in schools. Each classroom should have an impenetrable security door that the teacher can secure in the case of an outbreak. This might save lives when a gunman cannot easily get access to the students. To me this would be more valuable than one armed security officer in each school.posted @ Thursday, December 27, 2012 - 12:11
It's amazing to me that the media lock in on gun control and call the head of that association in on the carpet but won't do the same for violent computer games, TV and movies. These are the killing fields that help to set up violence towards others. Comprehensive means you look at every possible factor not just one factor such as gun control.posted @ Thursday, December 27, 2012 - 12:08

The name hip-hop is just an attempt to "clean up" rap music. Notice "rap" was in his speech title. I'm sure this was paid for with student activities fees so I guess that is okay but I've got to "wonder" about the younger generation if this is the best they can come up with for a "lecture."
Sounds like he is trying to "legitimize" rap music by lecturing about it. And, for those who have asked, rap music significantly demeans women, police, and anyone in authority. It uses profanity loosely. I do not listen to it but you can't help but hear it in passing somewhere today and be offended by the lyrics.
As for his cap, he forgot to tilt it.posted @ Wednesday, November 28, 2012 - 12:27
As long as ACC has the high degree of poverty which is driven primarily by the fact that ACC is the center of the economic area and thus attracts poor people who want public housing and free medical care and other social benefits, ACC is doomed to show poorly in economic indices. As long as public assistance is driven primarily by a willingness to take everyone in, the local economy will attract poverty from nearby areas that don't provide these generous benefits. It's a no brainer so let's not be too surprised we never show well on economic indices. We never will so get used to it as a fact of local life.posted @ Tuesday, November 27, 2012 - 13:15
This article identifies what he calls a "problem" and then attributes it to vague causes such as "policies: and the tax system. Sorry, but you have not correctly identified the reasons for the income gap and you have proposed no solutions whatsoever for the issue. What's your solution? Raise taxes on the successful people?! That is no solution at all.
There has always been income inequality in America. That is why we are so great. The people who work hard, get educated, pursue wealth, possess a skill, knowledge or expertise get ahead. Those who focus on opportunity rather than victimization will get ahead. This is called a meritocracy. The beauty of America is that anyone can do it and many have!
Using the tax system or government policies/benefits to redistribute the wealth will not address the issue. It only makes things worse: it creates a culture of dependency that is hard to overcome because it undercuts people's motivation and energy to escape poverty.
I know a number of people who have decided not to take on additional work because they are so punished by the tax system that it's not worth it. This is the real problem - undercutting the incentive for successful people or people who want to succeed.posted @ Tuesday, November 27, 2012 - 10:24

Once again the ABH finds a way to sneak it's extreme liberal bias on to the front page of the paper. And, that includes the author's name as well.
In addition, when over half the school system are minorities and most of them are on free lunch programs, food stamps, and other Obama give-aways this is an added reason why you'd see this bias from the kids.posted @ Monday, November 5, 2012 - 10:40

Full text of the Use of Public Right-of-Ways ordinance draft is below. Highlight: Would set hours of operation of each Athens-Clarke County "building campus" -- e.g. City Hall, the courthouse and Dougherty Street government building -- at 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. Park hours would either be set by the Athens-Clarke County manager or the Mayor and Commission. The ordinance has been derided by members of Occupy Athens and others as seeking to enforce a curfew on public property, thus damaging their First Amendment right to peacably assemble for long-term protests. read more
