It simply amazes me to read some of the CRAP you Obama haters write here, it is as though you need to keep telling yourself that GWB was a "good old southern Christian white boy" who was in waaaayyyy over his head, but would never tell the American people a "lie", he was just given some bad information by his advisors about WMD's (yeah right).... And your other Jesus like hero "Ronnie Reagan" was just taken advantage of by Ollie North and that crowd, and he never lied to us about Iran Contra, as a matter of fact according to you racist blowhards, Iran Contra never happen... But this "boy" Obama is just a dam lier, and nothing he says can be believed according to farmer ga, who also believes the 200K plus American and Iraqis lives lost was just a "mistake" not a lie. You sir and all those that subscribe to your BS line of thinking are racist punks. And by the way this Benghazi with hunt you and Lindsey Graham are pursuing will produce nothing in the end except to make you both look like the fools you are.......posted @ Wednesday, May 8, 2013 - 15:26
@hjfedrick: "Look you can't stay mad forever. You need to get over it and move on. A number of people are willing to put their differences aside and work for the betterment of all."
Oh yes they can and they will, but who gives a s#!t, they are very sad very un- important lil men and women who will never let go of their anger that President Obama beat their a$$e$ a second time. These are the same folk that believe the South will rise again and Ronald Reagan and Elvis will return. Pathetic.
@snoop: You are referring to buggie bush hear, right?
this "news paper" should have a story about it , what with the lies and witness tampering and videos just to save his ass in the election you'd think a REAL journalist would have the balls to write a story to inform the public about their pres lying while americans were dying!

Aaaaawww the plethora of Obama haters are out in force again this morning....When will you guys get the message,you southern heritage foundation, american interprise institute racist lost the election last Nov, and the good news is you are going to continue to lose them for years to come. Most of you will die right here in GA clinging to your "state rights" and be a non-player on the national scene. When you venture out of this state you must feel like mis-fits in your own country. You are pathetic, little morons that still hold onto some crazy idea that things will reverse someday. No one has caused more pain and suffering for this country in the last 60 years than Reagan and Bush Jr, with their economic and war mongering policies. Get the F over it you lost!!!!posted @ Wednesday, April 17, 2013 - 10:32

The idea that arming every citizen will make us all safer is just d@mn crazy. You allow some hot head idiot who is able to pass a background check to buy a weapon, get a carry permit, buy some alcohol or drugs and you have the makings of a disaster..If this stupid idea is passed in Atl, I hope all of you" Pro gun rights - NRA" advocates remember your postings on here as your children and grand children want glocks to carry to high school football games on Friday nights because everybody else has one. Our your wife or husband is shot dead in a bar or super market because some AH felt empowered carrying a gun. None of this is far fetched when you give people the right to settle disputes themselves rather than through the laws. Nothing good can come from this kind of mindless, irresponsible behavior.posted @ Tuesday, March 5, 2013 - 12:34
@Odins Eye: No body is talking about confiscating your damn guns or taking away your 2nd amendment rights. You nuts that keep floating this idea that the government is coming to your house and take your guns are just plain "fear mongers", I think you are actually trying to start an insurrection by planting the seeds of doubt that american citizens are being stripped of their rights and privacy. You take a little bibical history, mix it with a little world history, sprinkle that with a lot of your rightwing BS and you feed it to the masses to get a reaction. I support the President for trying to find sensible ways to end gun violence, and I despise the nra for it's role in spreading the lies of the gun manufactures and gun lobbyist.posted @ Wednesday, January 16, 2013 - 15:19

@cops231: From Dreams From My Father:
"I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the blackman, son of Africa , that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself: the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela."
So cop231, who do you suggest he emulate, who would you like to see him pattern his life after. uncle tom clearence thomas, uncle tom allen keys, brother sean AH hannity, brother rush AH limbaugh. Come on get real..... People like you with thoughts like yours are why so many black people are screwed up today. The days of "massah knows best" are long gone and shall never return. President Obama has been the President of all Americans in spite of the history he nd his people have had to endure he still works for the good of all Americans.
You sir are an idiot......
@RightWingExtremist: Loser or looser, you get the message. And as far as provoking you, I could give a s#!t less about provoking you.

You are correct. If Obama came out on stage and drop-kicked a puppy, the New York Times headline would read "Obama gives forceful debate performance".
Not to worry, all puppies are safe tonight. It is MITTS that will get drop- kicked, not MUTTS. Go OBAMA!!!!!!!!posted @ Wednesday, October 3, 2012 - 16:33

I don't care if you change it back or change it to. I'd call it what it originally was in the days of the Roman Empire, i.e. Dies Natalis of Sol Invictus, the "Birthday of the Unconquerable Sun," which was celebrated on December 25.

Rep. Regina Quick, R-Athens, was one of two local delegates to score less than an "A+" in the Chamber of Commerce's annual legislative score card. She and I played phone tag Monday when I was reporting the story and I wasn't able to get her comments in a timely fashion. Instead, she sent over this statement Wednesday morning and she did not mince her words. (Links and italicized portions are my own; otherwise, it's as she wrote it.) Dear Friends: read more
The committee opted Tuesday night to put off deciding on the ordinance until, at the earliest, its next meeting. Of note: The Athens-Clarke County attorney highlighted that the proposed times are, in essence, placeholders for the commission to change or keep as it pleases. Full text of the Use of Public Right-of-Ways ordinance draft is below. read more
