[quote][b]sgdog1[/b] - I have never understood why some people think that running a mega-corporation somehow qualifies a candidate to run the government. Government is not business.[/quote]
Government is akin to a business, in which the taxpayers/consumers are also the shareholders/citizens. The goal of government should be to provide the best set of goods and services that the consumers are asking for at the best price the taxpayers can afford, all the while adding value to the citizens of the community. Government returns a "profit" to it's citizen shareholders by doing their job well.posted @ Friday, October 24, 2014 - 14:36

Flowers on one side of the by-pass, connecting back roads on the other side of the by-pass. The HUGE problem is that rinky dink bridge that crosses the by-pass. The only way to go east and west is to cross that bridge. Bottleneck the system, it ain't going to be better.posted @ Friday, October 24, 2014 - 11:38

We're now known as the dysfunctional duo?
I don't know 33, my lease on this space is ending sooner or later. They think they're going to up the rent, they're sadly mistaken. No one is clamoring at the gates to get in, that's for sure. And the new landlady, no where to be found (heard). So much for having a relationship with the readership - or in this case the poster or two.posted @ Wednesday, October 22, 2014 - 17:24
US to track everyone coming from Ebola nations
The government can't even keep up with a top government employee's emails. How on earth can they track someone, especially if that person doesn't want to be tracked?posted @ Wednesday, October 22, 2014 - 17:17

Restaurants hold the #1 start-up business industry in America. It also holds the #1 spot on the list of businesses that fail each year. It's a tough business to be in.
I never bothered to eat there. See comments above on pricing, parking, so-so food, and add snotty attitude to the mix.posted @ Wednesday, October 22, 2014 - 08:32

I don't get that either. Seems like bad website management to me. No one in charge kind of thing. Makes you wonder if they put the story in the print edition 2 and 3 times on various - or heck the same - pages. You think they'd go broke doing that.
I thought they just hired a new grand pooh bah. Oh well. As they say in the military, This place if FUBAR.posted @ Tuesday, October 21, 2014 - 07:44

The last time O "focused" on anything, it raised the premiums of nearly every insured American in the country and jacked the taxes of working Americans.

Leaders never run for office. Pop stars do.

Budget cuts to the medical/scientific agencies didn't cause Ebola to come to America. Some Liberian LIED on his Visa application. He knew, or should have known or suspected, that he came into contact with an Ebola patient/victim. He alone brought Ebola into the US. Not a budget cut.
Neither political party is to blame for someone who lied about his own health.
If our front line of defense is the honesty of the next disease carrier - we're doomed.
We don't stop terrorists by asking them if they are a suicide bomber. Why then pretend to stop a carrier of a fatal disease by a checkbox on an application to enter our country.posted @ Friday, October 17, 2014 - 08:24

No one knows how things would have turned out if we asked Mary Lou to the dance. Likewise, we don't know how things would have turned out if we asked McCain, Palin or Romney (or someone else) to be our President.
What we're lacking at 1600, is a leader. O has never led anything more than a pep rally, and at that, the cheers were scripted.
And frankly, we need someone who cares about the American public and their needs. Yet we have someone who makes grand edicts about what's best for us, then fails to deliver on even that.
No, we don't know how much better one of the other candidates would have done in the job. But we know for a fact this one is a dud.posted @ Wednesday, October 15, 2014 - 07:46
"Protocol works!!" "The healthcare worker didn't follow protocol we had established." "So we're changing the protocol so the protocol will work"
Yeah, they know how to stop this as well as I know how.
And yes, they need to shut the borders of every country for 30 -60 days. It's a tough choice, but better than the alternative.posted @ Monday, October 13, 2014 - 14:03

Summary: I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
