Obama praises Biden, but doesn't endorse for 2016

If we had term limits we wouldn't be dealing with his embarassing nonsense. He would have been gone in the mid 80s.

Grimes: More equitable tax structure would make America a better place

We all pay enough tax as it is. Get off that bandwagon. The federal government must be accountable to the last dime for the trillions it already takes in. The rampant waste and pork barrel politics is inexcusable. No amount of tax is enough for the national socialists.

Athens man, 45, in and out of prison his entire adult life arrested again

There is a long list of these career criminals roaming the streets of Athens Clarke County that have no observable redeeming qualities. Many inhabit downtown pestering and harassing all in their path.

$1 trillion student loan debt widens US wealth gap

Another class warfare infomercial from the AP. The lawyer obviously wants it all right now, and the author should grow up also.

Justice Scalia talks Constitution in Atlanta

This is the third day that the ABH has kept this article active. Why so long??
Were they disappointed the liberals were a no show the first two days considering the hatred that the local leftists have for all things right of center including Scalia? Must be the cool weather.

Georgia Senate panel green lights bill restricting state Obamacare help

"The unaffordable care act" Much to the dismay of many liberals the ACA has been popularly rebranded Obamacare. I for one would be in favor of foregoing the term Obamacare for the spot on UCA (unafforable care act), but only if it has a subscript that reads as follows: This law is Barack Obama's signature piece of legislation during his eight years as president.

Vice President Joe Biden to visit Atlanta

No doubt we will hear that patronizing phony southern drawl that he uses when addressing African Americans.

Wig Out: Downtown Athens loses another retailer in Lee's Wigs

The parking situation continues to stifle downtown business. There is no question of that. The remedy is simple. Lower the price and reduce the fines. Yes, students will park for class and employees and owners will park on the meters, but it was with that scenario that downtown thrived. Now most of the businesses are crying that business is slow to very slow. Combine a hostile parking environment with a weak economy and what were once good businesses are crippled then killed.

Government lets banks, marijuana sellers do business

It's been reported that credit card companies don't want to get involved with the legal pot business either. That means they are CASH businesses. If it's a cash business I guarantee that money is going straight into the owner's and employee's pockets undocumented. For that stolen money there is no sales tax, federal withholding, Fica, Federal unemployment, state unemployment, and every other tax based on sales volume and payroll, being collected. Unless there is a full time state employee (auditor) in each store watching every transaction and documenting daily receipts the above scenario is what's happening.

27K without power in Georgia, but Athens area OK so far

As of 8:00 this morning we see very little ice accumulating on trees here in north Oconee. Precipitation is sleet. Hope it stays that way.

Players, fans react to Grantham's departure on social media

We all knew, and kept getting the impression, that Georgia was just a stop over
for Grantham. We are seriously getting our hopes up for a big time DC if TG made 850K and left for 1M. If we go over 1M for a DC the North Campus National Socialists will rip the football program from here to eternity, and that would set off a cascade of raises throughout the whole Athletic Dept. Look for an in house promotion or a small college DC who has had success and will receive a salary between 900K and 1M.

Grantham leaving Georgia for Louisville

This is a great opportunity to rebuild the defense in the image of Erk Russell. That would be a 4 - 3 with two azz kickin defensive ends, a take-no-prisoners group of linebackers, and a no bend no break game plan.

A&E reverses decision on 'Duck Dynasty' patriarch

@Shrike: Saw a TV documentary about the Holy Land from the Old Testatment time period. It mentioned that the dish used to collect the blood of saraficial animals was called a Gomer. Turns out to be quite a religious name.

Youth pot smoking rises as attitudes shift

@Heisenberg: Keep smoking. Obviously it's a badge of honor for you. Was for me also . . . . . . when I was 20-25. Youth and stupidity go together.

Youth pot smoking rises as attitudes shift

As millions in the society throw away their lives in the pursuit of self gratification, this leaves the door wide open for the disciplined achievers to earn the wealth and influence this country has to offer. While the drunk and stoned sleep it off, the clear minded lay the ground work for companies and inventions. Keep smoking, then wake up in your forties and complain to your progressive Senators and Representatives how the system has been so unfair to you and demand compensation.

UGA tailback Green says he is open to potential position change

A college football team that can match up it's tall receivers against the opponents short DBs and safties has a very big advantage. A 5' 9" DB with great atheletic skills is still no match for a 6' 3" receiver with good hands. We see it over and over. Especially when the defense has a marginal pass rush.

Interest in hemp grows in S.C., while Georgia takes a pass

@DanMatthews: Always happy to give the progressive townies an observation into which they can sink their fangs. She very easiy could have started the article with the second paragraph, and she should have. I know what she implied, and you know what she implied and it was as subtle as a loud f@*t.

Don't you just love the first paragraph. Typical how our liberal journalists give us their opinions and political bias.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    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.

    Winter storm drama

    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
