North Korea fully capable of Sony computer hack, says UGA expert

I really don't think we have a clue as to who  behind this. This is kind of like the missile launch off the coast of California which we still have no clue.  The Russians could be behind this as well ac the Chinese.  The danger now is everything operated by computers is vulnerable.  The power grid, water system, banking, government (local, county, state, federal) military, etc.  I'm having trouble finding ink for the ribbon on my underwood typewriter.

Jackson deputies anger repo man

Good for those officers.  I would question if the repro man can legally enter private property without a replevin action issued by a Judge.  While the  Constitution limits government from the seizure of property without  a warrant (which most jurisdictions disregard) it does not apply to private individuals unless they are working as agents of the government.

Funt: Democrats' worst 2016 enemy is themselves

Now that Jeb Bush has his hat in the ring, it is more important  than ever that we draft Liz Warren as President and Bernie Sanders as her running mate for Vice  President. Liz will appeal to our base and the Independent Sanders will appeal the vast number of independent voters.  What a winning pair for 2016.

Obama: As a black man he's been mistaken for valet

We must remember the President is half white.  His father was black and his mother was white.  He was dad left the family, Mom turned him over to his  white grandmother to raise.

Perhaps it's about time we begin to arrest some of these film makers.  Oh...oops, we've done that already.

VIDEO: Obama says US ending outdated approach to Cuba

We had some friends visit Cuba a few years ago.  They went through Canada and the Cubans did not stamp their passports.  They said it  was like a time warp.  It was like traveling back to the 1960s.  The old American cars are cool, most have need rigged with Russian parts.  I guess a Russia  piston fits well into a Chevy 6 Cyl. engine.  They said everything was dingy, in need of repair and paint.  They were treated very well and the people were friendly.

Extra Special People to present second annual Festival of Trees

     Let us not forget a viable alternative is to celebrate Festivis which is often forgotten by officials trying to be inclusive at this time of year.   This is the Holiday for the rest of us who are concerned about the over commercialism and pressures of the traditional celebration.  My unadorned aluminium  pole stands proudly in a corner of the  room.  I wanted to put one outside but the price of metal made me reconsider.  
     I have removed the calendar and photos from the fridge  so everyone can write the  'Airing of  Grievances' in black marker. Family can also shout out how others have bitterly disappointed them this past year. 
      The traditional Festivus dinner is a meatloaf resting on a bed of spaghetti with a tomato sauce poured over it.  Desert is the traditional  Pepperidge Farm cake adorned with M&Ms.  
     I am already engaged in doing road work and lifting weights in preparation for the Feats of Strength following dinner or in the case of 'The Stike' during dinner. The head of the household is attacked by another family member to a wrestelimg match. One must be pinned or the dinner continues on.  Now, the Feats of Strength can be postponed if someone has to go to work or has something better to do. 
     We also recite easily explained events as Festivis  Miracles.  Events such as taking the dinner out of the oven or turning on the  electric lights. 
     All this is celebrated on December 23ed.  Happy Festivis Everyone.

Toll lane price in metro Atlanta hits record $10

 Charging this outrageous price for these lanes gives GDOT incentives not to solve the root causes of congestion.  They will be allowed to sit back on their big overstuffed chairs padding their  coffers making money on these Hot lanes paid for by taxpayers while the huddled masses are parked on the congested  highways caused by poor engineering.  It might be time to collect evidence of neglect  and malfeasance within  GDOT and clean house.  Let's get people in there who are competent.

$2 for a gallon of gas? Yes, please

There is a speech on YouTube of our President (Who is very knowable of these things) instruct  stupid Americans that 'We cannot drill our way out (high fuel praises) this.'   Well again, he was proven wrong.

Study: 270,000 tons of plastic floating in oceans

@Greg Benson: On second thought, let's leave it there.  If you  have ever done any deep sea fishing you will  soon learn that the clear ocean can be a wasteland, a desert for life.  Many species of sea life need to attach to something to grow,  Anything that floats will sooner or later attract sea life snitch will attach and grow thus attracting more sea life to feed and grow.  Let's leave it there formthe benefit of sea life.

Studio head, producer apologize for Jolie, Obama remarks

@mpd0.59:
Oh C'mon man.  These two are huge contributors to our party.  In fact I believe the President is scheduled to meet with them soon in one of his many fund rising missions.  These two are hypocrites, they are two faced.  We now know their true feelings about the President.  As for Gibson, I don't recall him making any two faced statements about Israel or the Jewish faith.  Trying to make a connection is a stretch.  If these two were conservatives, your hair would be on fire. We must treat two faced  racists equally.

Studio head, producer apologize for Jolie, Obama remarks

What is most shocking are the leaked Sony e-mails of our friends, the Hollywood big shots who are  Democrat supporters who are making racially insensitive remarks about our great President.  These are our two faced friends?  This is terrible. Democrats need to send all campaign money back to these  racist fat cats.

If they were out there in the ocean measuring and weighing this floating debris. why didn't the put in in a barge and get it out of  the water?  Only environmentalist would scream and holler about a problem and do nothing about it.

Democrats, Obama part on $1.1T spending bill

What are Democrats trying to do, shut  down the government?  The President is working the phones with VP Biden, cooperating with Republicans trying to drum up  votes and Warren is leading an insurrection.

Well, what they fail to point out is that at one time all the people killed by police at one time drank milk.  How 'bout that?  There is a link.

2 psychologists helped run CIA interrogations

     What is most shocking about this report according to Bloomberg, we now know the Bush did not know about the 'enhanced Interrogation' for the first four years.  When he was finally told, he was most uncomfortable.   Also, according to this report Cheney and Rice were not fully brief also.
     All these years he have been screaming about Bush and Cheney and their war crimes,  liberals demanded they be tried and jailed but they  were not briefed about the 'black sites' nor the techniques. They didn't know.  
     Difi was praised for releasing this report but now we know that Bush, Cheney, Rice, et al, we're not told for four years.  I wonder now what her motive was.

Driving while black? App developers aim to help

@snarkydude: I understand about the minor infractions leading to bigger things,  One of my officers  caught a bank robber in traffic radar.  The practice you mentioned is called 'casting a broad net'.  If you stop a lot of little fish, you may catch a big one.  Or...even a blind squirrel may find a nut.  However, in today's world perhaps the dangers and potential abuse of random traffic stops for minor infractions  is becoming to great.  Are we paying far to much attention to a persons travel papers, a tag or Insurance computer snafu.  Are officers enforcing bureaucracy?  After all, we've done this since the 1930s, can't a better way be developed?

CIA fights back after torture report

     What is most shocking and in some ways disappointing is that, according to Bloomberg we now know the Bush did not know about the 'enhanced Interrogation' for the first four years.  When he was finally told, he was most uncomfortable.   Also, according to this report Cheney and Rice were not fully brief also.

Georgia kicks off holiday safe driving campaign

Yup, holiday time and another overtime enforcement scheme.  This is the  way your scarce gasoline tax money is wasted.  The 18 cent federal tax imposed on every gallon of gasoline we purchase was originally intended to build and repair highways.  It was intended to fix bridges and replace traffic control devices.  Much of this money is being squandered on non road projects like bike and hike trails and these overtime enrichment schemes.  I admit, when I was an officer I enriched myself with these operations, we could have modified our hours and done the same thing, but the Chief wanted the federal money.  These operations should be ended and the money spent on road building and repair.

Driving while black? App developers aim to help

The best thing we can do to help all people, make the roads safer and free up officers for more important police work is to halt the practice of random stops.  Years ago the USDOT issued a study stating the the majority of  traffic stops were for minor regulatory infractions.  Officers put drivers and themselves in danger from collision and promotes racial profiling by these random stops.  Women are also in danger from bad cops or police look-alikes.  In the  21st century we need to find a better way to deal with minor infractions. Policy should  forbid stops for except for felonies and serious misdemeanour crimes.

Rise in sexual assaults could signal a change in culture

Thank you for mentioning this.  Are the allegation and reports being taken at face value (Rolling Stone Magazine) or are authorities seriously investigating the stories to determine if they are factual.   We have also changed the definition of what could be considered a sexual assault.  The entire field of sexual assault has also changed due to the  sexual orientation of the individual.  A key element in this story is that the federal government is pressuring colleges so unless schools want government bureaucrats mucking up a campus, they must look like something is being done.

Based on this poll workers assumptions, we soon might need to be nude to vote.  Certain colors might denote Gang affiliation.  Blue clothing is associate with Blue State Democrats. Green is for being green.  Yup, to be sure we won't send the wrong message everyone will need to vote In the buff.

    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.

    No cartoons on racism

    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
