Republicans cite scandals to slam Obama in day one of GOP convention in Athens

@woofie11: classic, once again...oh I'm sorry, you need it simpler put, show me where the stock market is down, or housing, or the auto industry, or American Tech, or manufacturing..

oh you can't? that's right, now go look at where we were 8 years ago, we were in a bottomless Bush pit.

@loveUSA: uh, classic response genius. Take a look at the country, Obama and his policies have saved this country. Look at unemployment, stock market, and manufacturing, our industries are roaring!

What ever you are about to say is invalid, p.s. saying the country is in the toilet compared to 8 years ago when Bush left office is plain ignorant and foolish.

Fighting for their own goals, against the country and it's people, like the repubs have been doing, will only ensure democrats in the White House for at least the next 2 terms. Hatred and down right treasonous actions towards the President and this country. Despicable!!

Athens cyclist arrested, restrained

@2dollar:

you are NOT allowed to block the road, ASS, you must be able to maintain a constant minimum speed to travel on or occupy streets in the USA in almost every single city/state. that is why there are bike lanes, because you cannot maintain minimum speeds on a pedal bike. However, you MUST obey all traffic laws.. look it up

It's truly amazing how many people do not know the law. Bikers think they are above it as well. If you ride on the road, you obey all traffic laws, just the same as a car, scooter or motorcycle. You can receive a DUI/OUI on a bike

Caterpillar's jobs come at a price

Totally worth it, these will be good jobs, and a lot of them, unlike the chicken plant in Athens or walmart for that matter.

(Walmart is good too, but there will only be about 5-10 35k-50k per yr. positions and 100 7$ an hour position ), and yes the chicken plant is good too, but it's 9$ an hr jobs do not really help Athens or the surrounding area elevatequality of life. )

    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
