[quote][b]mpd0.59[/b] - Unregulated free market capitalism will never work in the best interest of consumers.
You're wrong. Peanut Corporation of America was punished by our capitalistic system and was forced out of business through bankruptcy in 2009. Capitalism worked much faster than action by our federal government.posted @ Saturday, August 2, 2014 - 06:45
[quote][b]mpd0.59[/b] - There seems to be a marked distinction between the new businesses sprouting up in OC and in ACC. OC has mostly cookie cutter, large retail chain stores, while ACC has mostly eclectic, entrepreneurial, small businesses.
Very true. And, how would you feel about ordering chocolate from a company named after a giant South American buzzard? I wish these guys luck in their venture. They come & go frequently in ACC.posted @ Saturday, August 2, 2014 - 04:57
What's with these parents allowing any intact male dog (pit bull or any breed) be close by another pet that is in heat? And, allowing their children to be in the mix? This is a recipe for disaster, no matter what breed dog. Don't blame the pit bull.

“They were really close homeboys to me,” Green said. “Some guys got to do some things to feed their family. They mess up and they get another second chance.”
This is the mindset that is Georgia football. Pathetic. And, when you purchase a ticket, or support the UGA football program in any way, you're condoning it.

[quote][b]OCCountry[/b] - As a hunter, this type of behavior is unacceptable. Once the criminal is captured, they can seize weapons and vehicles. Additionally, a multi year suspension of their hunting license (if they have one) should be put in place.
I remember a case years ago when deer were relatively rare around here where the judge required the guilty hunter to arrange for the transportation of a deer from a Texas deer farm and released here.
It's a shame that illegal hunters stoop to such tactics, and for what?posted @ Friday, July 11, 2014 - 15:36

One of those strange times when I agree with you! I lived there in the '70's and it was depressing then. A "little" big town. You didn't have a chance in the local society unless you were a member of the country club or if Mr. Fickling had planted one of his famed cherry trees in your front yard. Totally depressing place to live...
[quote][b]AbidingDude[/b] - and he thought running the car's engine while he was in the store was ok?
I would guess there's nothing wrong with it if your vehicle is in top running order. That's the owner's judgement call. I don't do it with our dogs. I have seen county sheriff's deputies (NOT OC) lock their K-9's in their vehicles and left running for an entire day while on duty and away from their vehicles for long periods of time (hours).
His was a bad judgement call induced by alcohol, IMHO.posted @ Wednesday, July 9, 2014 - 16:46

When I was a kid, kids didn't go hungry in the summertime or anytime no matter how poor the family. The family always buckled down and made feeding the family daily a priority instead of prioritizing IPhones and drugs. If a family became destitute, then the extended family & the church gave a helping hand.
The keyword here is "FAMILY". Hungry kids live in families who are not parenting.posted @ Sunday, June 29, 2014 - 03:54
[quote][b]TeeWee[/b] - A state nor the university can dictate where a person lives. There are many people with multi residences, some have no state residence and are Nomads. It is very chilling for an institution such as UGA to be able to tell a citizen where they can or cannot live. A recent Supreme Court decision this week (no-fly rule) upheld a citizens implied constitutional right to travel, will the University attempt to restrict that? I would also venture to say that the confusing residency requirements are hard to understand. The definition of residency is likely different for a person to receive in-state tuition, or obtaining a drivers license, or a library card or to be a city or state office holder. This is very chilling and we all should be very concerned.
I don't see UGA telling people where they must live. They only require a person to live in Ga to get in-state tuition rates. Blowing smoke and stacking up the mirrors on issues like this is the typical progressive/liberal way of dodging the law.posted @ Friday, June 27, 2014 - 12:05

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
