Column: Finally time for UGA to pay Bobo what he’s worth

[quote][b]mpd0.59[/b] - And POTUS makes $400,000 a year.
[/quote]

and he is overpaid. To add to this, Obama and you, with your anti-capitalist leanings, should not care about the money, right? "From each according to his abilities" right? Wink

Carolinas politicians get payouts from lender

[quote][b]RoyBoy[/b] - Or even the right to health care and a living wage? .

Are these new constitutional rights that no logical and rational thinking American has every heard of? Do American citizens without healthcare or a living wage have a right to a piece of my life that I sacrificed and worked for? Wink

Georgia offensive coordinator Bobo will interview with Colorado State

[quote][b]mpd0.59[/b] - . But it never ceases to amaze me how many people make more than the measely $400,000 / year that the POTUS gets as the leader of the free world and the commander-in-chief of the most powerful military on earth.

Technically, he is leader of the executive branch of the U.S and Commander-in-Chief, and that's it. He holds a job that wasn't necessarily awarded to him based on a resume, accomplishments, or other mandatory requirements that we typically see in the private sector but he was awarded the job based on popularity as all presidents are. I think that Presidents are paid too much as it is now as well as members of Congress. If many of the holders of seats of Congress as well as the President performed as poorly in the private sector as they do in the public sector they would be jobless and standing in the unemployment lines.

Carter: Advice for dealing with police

[quote][b]Georgia Boy[/b] - @swimdawg68: Research has shown that Fox News watchers have more misconceptions and are less knowledgeable than listeners of NPR. That is a fact and it is the truth.
[/quote]

You mean that TSNPR (Taxpayer Subsidized National Public Radio), which is radio and not TV, provides more facts that private TV? Who is this "research" by? NPR? PBS, MoveOn? Keep believing what your government tells you to believe and everything will be alright... Wink Laughing out loud

Ambrose: More conservatives needed on college campuses

[quote][b]TheBetterGeneration[/b] - @snarkydude: Your experience is so limited and I don't have any reason to believe anything you're saying. I personally know 43 different professors at 15 different universities, and in my experience most of them have blue tinted skin. .
[/quote]

Probably because 80 to 90 percent of them profess in disciplines that have no merit in the real world. They, assumingly, have degrees in the liberal arts which have little value in a capitalistic society with few exceptions such as business and law.
in my experience, private colleges such as Embry riddle and public technical colleges such as GA Tech, Cal Tech and Virginia Tech, for example, the professors have red-tinted skin because they instruct degrees in real sciences such as engineering and physics that prosper in the capitalistic world. It's that simple.
For the record, my peers and myself do not even recognize the liberal arts as a true discipline nor degree as they are not remotely close to rigorous study and debate as the hard sciences. It's fool's gold in other words.
With all of this being said, studies such as literature and arts should be offered only as electives and not as core. Anything else is a waste. Wink

Camille Cosby's statement on assault accusations

@snarkydude: You can observe the revenge and rebuttal by other posters in this thread. The left can't tolerate a nationally revered black guy speaking positively about personal responsibility or any symbol of independence. From their perspective, he must be silenced Wink

Midterm election's lesson for Democrats: You can't run away and hide

[quote][b]cornish531[/b] -

@swimdawg68: "Fortunately for America, Soros and his crowd failed to convince the voters that their flawed far-left ideas personified by Obama, is good for America."

Will you be kind enough to share three of Obama's "far-left ideas?"

[/quote]

1. Affordable Health Care Act (didn't you see that coming? Big smile ) 2. Shutting down Gitmo, Really?? 3. Attempting to be leader of the free world without leadership skills.

The third example stands out more than any other. Not really his fault, only the parasites who elected him. Wink

How emotional and caring that sounds...Do you not want to help third world countries? Do you not care about the downtrodden? Outsourcing---product of surviving an less than stellar Obama economy. There are always jobs out there. Can one swallow their pride and accept a job that is "beneath" them?

those who fought against health care for Americans who can't afford it;

Translation----those who opposed letting a dysfunctional entity, who could not even manage the rollout of the government healthcare program, after spending nearly two billion dollars on a website. I care much more for my family and humans in general to support this fiasco.

[quote][b]dahreese[/b] -

those ignorant enough to think/claim they're 'self-made?'

[/quote]

Translation----those people who made intellectual and wise decisions on what they want in life, The self supporting, the honest and hard worker who sacrificed personal wants and instant gratification to be self-sufficient. Those who chose not to blame other people and groups on personal failures in life and rose above that instead of feeling sorry for themselves.

Towery: Federal response to current crises is chaotic

@cyou299:

The quote, "the ends justify the means" accurately describes your position. Can Obama do no wrong? His major flaw, disregarding any political philosophies that I have with him and his administration, is that he is not a leader. This, he is unable to change. Bill Clinton had leadership skills although his leftist political ideology differed from my libertarian philosophy but nonetheless he was a leader. Obama has done more damage to this country because of his lack of leadership than anything else. Wink

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    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.
