[quote][b]avenger[/b] - Love it when the State of Georgia and private business work to exclude and discriminate against qualified workers because they are afraid of what unions do to help workers. You know, the 40 hour work week, minimum wages, paid vacations, maternity leave, pensions, health care and a myriad of other work related privileges and standards that were won by unions. [/quote]

My employer has direct deposit, and asserts that we all have to use it.
I demanded a check on being first employed. Took six weeks, but after ten years with this employer, I still get my check in the mail. Five days earlier than the direct deposit goes out.

[quote][b]jlscott[/b] - @Anonymous Dude: No, no, you just don't understand the appropriate TO&E classification for these types of things:
1. Boloney. Boloney, Type 1. Plain old Boloney. Bells, $ .99/Lb
2. Mortadella. Boloney, Type 2. Boloney w/ chunks of crap. Publix, $ 12.99/Lb
It's all in the name.
Interestingly enough, the best bologna I have found in town is "Lunch Mate" brand; 99 cents at Aldi. More flavorful than Boar's Head...really...posted @ Monday, June 17, 2013 - 18:56
Please don't even try to make bologna more natural looking.
Leave it round, red, and quite artificial.

Every prohibition enforcement agent needs to quit their job and find more honorable employment.
But they won't. Because they are the type of dirtbags who enjoy suffering.

@knowsalittleaboutalot: Cops DO get to choose what laws they enforce.
And the GSP, true to its redneck traditions, chose to pull up plants rather than enforce traffic safety.
Because they would rather blame pot for society's problems instead of Georgians blaming themselves for being stupid rednecks.posted @ Thursday, June 13, 2013 - 08:25

[quote][b]EdwardLTant[/b] - Just sign your names like people do in the print edition. Some folks will always talk big and bad if they are allowed to hide behind a fake name. Anonymous comments belong on bathroom walls.
And those who have the bravery to put their own name on here tend to exercise that bravery in historical commentary that does not put them out of line with the powers that be...

@hang em high: The Federal Government PAID the owners of Cumberland, Ossabaw, Jekyll, etc., etc., as they would pay the Weyerhausers...
Yes, I think the Federal or State governments SHOULD exercise eminent domain on such natural treasures as the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, and Little St. Simons Island. Fair value for Little St. Simons should be what the Weyerhausers paid for the island in 2013 dollars, MINUS the cost of eradicating all human development of that island and returning it to its natural state. Just like they need to do with Cumberland. Demolish Greystoke Inn and every other house there. Leave basic primitive camping facilities. A manual pump well and basic latrines. Federalize all of Cumberland and stop the piecemeal bullcrap.
In fact, about that whole area, I truly wish that General Sherman's Special Field Order No. 15 granting the entire coasts of North and South Carolina and Georgia to black Gullah refugees had not been taken out of effect by that racist bahstahd Andrew Johnson.
The Weyerhausers and the elitists who bought Jekyll were only able to do so because the islands were handed to rich whites by President Johnson before Lincoln's body was cold.posted @ Monday, June 10, 2013 - 12:52

As a huge Backstreet Boys fan, I was little perplexed on reading Nick Carter?s book. It?s not like reading a book about Elvis Presley or The Beatles. I didn?t live through those moments. I didn?t see them in person. But as someone who has followed Nick?s career since I became a fan in 1998, not just in the Backstreet Boys, but as a solo artist, I?ve always thought we had a lot in common besides being the same age. read more
The Athens Banner-Herald sports staff combined to win 11 individual awards on Sunday at the Georgia Sports Writers Association's annual meeting in Marietta. You can get a few more details on that in this story ? "Banner-Herald sports staff wins 11 awards" ? and I thought I'd provide some links to the winning stories for the curious. The awards were for the sports staff's work in 2012. read more
