God Bless Phil!! If you cant say what you feel, where are we? RUSSIA
He said what he wanted to say, and there were repercussions from his employer. That's not hard to follow. And it has nothing to do with RUSSIA.
Saying "Fire!" is protected by free speech, unless you are in a movie theatre.
Bomb is also protected by free speech, but you can't say it on an airplane. Well... you can, but there are repercussions.posted @ Thursday, December 19, 2013 - 18:42
@loveUSA: "(10 million tuned in to their Christmas special)."
So what? That means roughly 307million, 270 thousand did not (I can only assume that we had more important things to do, or more pressing issues to pay attention to).
"We can't all be as special as you."
True, but don't forget the other 307+ million.

@mpd0.59: Is that a prerequisite for making a comment on our football team? Just curious.
I have donated time and money throughout my life attending UGA football games and donating to UGAAA. Native Athenian. My parents (massive Dawg fans) carted me all over the country to games as a child. Raised a Bulldog. Will die a Bulldog. Been to every SEC venue there is. And most outside our conference. Gator Bowl repeatedly. Sugar Bowl several times, including '80 National Championship game. Hell, Sugar Bowl when it was played at Tulane Stadium (Jake Scott still drunk from partying on Bourbon St. the night before). My parents had the same seats in Sanford Stadium for 38 years, until the UGAAA fees to acquire season tickets skyrocketed and they could no longer afford them. Handed down to me. I kept them until I had to pay for tuition for my child to attend UGA. Haven't donated in several years. That makes me no less a Dawg fan than the people that sit in our seats at the stadium. If the Athletic Association can afford to pay Grantham $850,000 a year... they don't need my money.posted @ Monday, December 2, 2013 - 18:20
"Under Grantham, Georgia is giving up 381.3 yards per game, the most since 1999 and 47th nationally. The Bulldogs are allowing 29.4 points per game, which ranks 80th nationally and would be the highest in program history."
"Grantham, among the highest paid assistants in college football at $850,000 per season..."
We aren't getting $850,000 worth of defense. Our offense has to be ready to put 30, even 40 points on the board in order to stay in the game? Unacceptable.
“I ain’t worried about any of that stuff,” he said. “I mean, Hey, I look at the body of work I’ve done and I’m fine.”

@nowheregirl: Burger Chef was my first ever job ( the lot where Chipolte is now), and yes, you are correct... "(In the old days you were greeted nicely, and the customer was always right, imagine that!)" Not that long ago I had an employee at a local McDonalds try to argue with me over two cents she said I didn't give her. Like I'm gonna take anybody seriously that has a "4%" tattoo on her throat. She was very rude.
Also, something that really irks me with the younger generation is after you finish your transaction with them and say "thank you", 9 times out of 10 there is either no response (like I did them a favor), or, they say "no problem". What happened to "you're welcome"? I HOPE IT'S NOT A PROBLEM - IT'S YOUR F@#&*>G JOB!!!!!!!posted @ Monday, December 2, 2013 - 15:58

Proofread first. They didn't wait until Murray went to the hospital to start whipping the 'cats. He already did that before he went down.

"...deadliest conflict fought on U.S. soil from 1861-65 between the Northern states and the secessionist, pro-slavery Southern states."
I am so sick of the Southern states being cast in the light of "pro-slavery". Less than 30% of Southerners owned slaves, meanwhile blacks were being openly sold in slave market auctions in Boston, New York, Philadelphia and many other Northern states. President Lincoln only reluctantly "freed" the slaves to cause division in the south in the hopes that blacks would take up arms against Southerners, and to bolster numbers in his own army. Remember, the Union army was trying to fight two wars in this country at the same time. One against the secessionists, the other against the Native Americans. Also note that his Proclamation came as a ploy nearly two years after the first shot was fired at Fort Sumter.posted @ Thursday, November 21, 2013 - 20:43

I too believed Zimmerman was acting in self defense. Until I read over some trial transcripts and found that no DNA from Trayvon was found on the gun or holster that they were ALLEGEDLY struggling for possession over. Also, there was none of Zim"s DNA on Trayvon's hands or under his nails. Seems highly unlikely (pretty near impossible), being that he was "in a fight for his life" while Trayvon was ALLEGEDLY slamming Zim's head into the sidewalk.
