Since it is unlikely that the dealer pays to read the paper I think the police should make certain the dealer learns of his customer's loyalty.posted @ Friday, March 14, 2014 - 11:34

Why, and I'm serious about this, is this mammal alive? Why hasn't his community seen fit to thin the herd of Darwinian rejects?posted @ Tuesday, March 4, 2014 - 16:20
Watching this show, which I confess I did for 15 minutes was like watching the "Goodfellas" movie.
Now That I posted this I need someone to start my car every morning.
Why would a conservationist group still publish hard copy papers?posted @ Monday, March 3, 2014 - 14:50
The effect of President Obama's lack of skills in international and domestic matters will surface first on the foreign stage because of the obvious amount of players on scene. The damage done to us domestically will only begin to surface after the number of believers begin to dwindle.
The big question on the table is which theater is going to bring us down.
Any one that believes the soviet ship in Cuba, the aggression in Ukraine and the harboring of Snowden are not connected in some ideological manner really should go on a Kool Aid free diet immediately.
@Ben Had: Couldn't agree with you more about re-evaluating our priorities. We should no longer fund programs that are meant to meant to pump government money to increase employment.
Our military has morphed into a more acceptable form of welfare for congressional districts.
No one in DC cares about the lowly citizen soldiers.
We are reaping everything that we have sown.
@johng: Your naiveté surprises me.
Your statement says that only republican politicians see gains in their districts from military spending. This of course is ridiculous.
Develop a list a Democratic politicians that want: military equipment (planes, uniforms, tanks, radios, etc.) manufacturing cut from their territory: to close military bases in their region: move VA hospitals to other locations.
Let me save you the trouble....you won't be able to create a long list.
the problem in my opinion is that the average military member does not have a lobbyist working to preserve pay and benefits. Therefore it is an easy target or our corrupt officials.
I'm pretty sure that the practice of proportional hiring for jobs is not a practice the NAACP should want to start.
Demanding the best of all citizens should be everyone's focus,
If they wanted to go to college so badly all they had to do was to keep up their grades and apply for a HOPE scholarship.
Now they are going to get another kind of education but still paid for by the citizens of Georgia.
Not to convict this person of murder was a travesty of justice.
He should be sentenced to 60 years without possibility of parole and save the cost of retrying him on the murder charge.
What if the ambulance all of a sudden forgot the route to the hospital? Should have let him walk.posted @ Wednesday, February 19, 2014 - 13:15
It is a shame that the best we have to offer is barring this sick human being from a building.
Maybe we should spend some of the money that we give to other countries, undeserving citizens, corporations and the padded pockets of our political leaders (no insult of real leaders intended) to help our truly sick citizens.

Another abject failure of foreign policy in the works.
Is this the kind of progress the administration spoke of when they warned against Congressional action reinstating the sanctions if Iran failed to live up to the first step agreement?
You can almost hear every global leader laughing at us.
President Obama was right when he said that we are not an exceptional nation. And the world and we will be worse off for it.
Wow don't look now but it seems to me that assimilation is happening. I thought that was a good thing. Once again my old white brain is wrong.posted @ Tuesday, February 18, 2014 - 10:55
We should ban the sending of aid to any and all European countries, their protectorates, territories etc.posted @ Tuesday, February 18, 2014 - 10:48

The female torch bearer had posted a tweet showing a picture of President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama with a banana superimposed to make it look as if someone was feeding them. She has since taken the post down but defended here racist act by saying that she was practicing her free speech right and that we should get over slight. Yes that's right folks we have been chastised on free speech from a Russian.
The male torch bearer lobbied for a Russian law that does two things: identifies the type if people that are not allowed to immigrate to Russia and it makes it illegal for Americans to adopt Russian children.
The two torch bearers were picked by Putin.
This act shows to me that Putin is controlling the international dialogue and putting our weak President up for ridicule. Imagine what all of the power brokers in the world, allies and enemies are thinking about us now.
I guess being a paper tiger goes along with becoming a third world power.
@Joe Johnson: Here is some unsolicited free advice so you can delete it before reading any further.
I suspect every one at the paper is feeling a lot of pressure as a result of the transition to "for fee" services and most likely other fiscal issues.
Every customer has the right to complain about anything they see fit no matter how far off base they may be at any given time. However never let them wear you down and react to the criticism personally.
Because the errors made "are not uncommon in any newspaper on the planet" is no reason not to become better than the other newspapers on the planet.
Keep up the fight Joe!

Summary: Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
