[quote][b]ThinkAboutItFromAllSides[/b] - @MrCharlieW: Why is so much IT support necessary? How do the home schoolers do it? Why not just give them Internet and access to some basic online learning software. How does the GA Virtual Academy do it??
The way it is handled by the Ga. Cyber Academy is that if a student does not have the means to purchase a computer, a desktop is provided.posted @ Friday, August 10, 2012 - 14:06

Why do you need the names? Do you plan to punish the children of parents that don't agree with you?posted @ Friday, August 10, 2012 - 12:27
The only threat to public schools, is public schools themselves. If public schools and their local school boards were doing the job of educating our children, then this would not be a issue.
I find it amusing that the failing school districts are the one screaming about this the most.posted @ Friday, August 10, 2012 - 08:10

[quote][b]catman[/b] - Shame on you, Budge. It's not the 60s and you're not in Viet Nam. The child sex laws there were probably more lax then the laws here and now. Times have changed and using a computer to look at pictures of naked children at the library will get you called a pedophile, and that will get you arrested and charged.
I think old Budge is getting a bit senile or maybe on the wrong meds. I don't think he's a real, child raping, pedophile, but the internet child pornography law has been broken and he'll get his day in court.
Budge, did someone send you that URL in some email, or did you go out looking for what you got? Either way, you found it.
Budge used to be a policeman in Walnut Grove or Loganville (I think that's where).
You may be right about the right about the wrong meds. I talked to him about six months ago and he did not seem like he knew what was going on.posted @ Tuesday, August 7, 2012 - 21:15

I kinda chuckled at the people who said they would whip is azz. Budge may be 70, but jump on him and you might bite off more than you can chew.posted @ Tuesday, August 7, 2012 - 21:09
I guess that means Doug McKillip lost by an even larger margin.posted @ Tuesday, August 7, 2012 - 08:25
[quote][b]FanaticalModerate[/b] - Hell, he's probably not even a vet. Usually the people that crow loudest about the supposed 'action' they saw are the ones who haven't seen squat.
You would be wrong on that one.
Budge Williams was a Green Beret Officer assigned to Project Gamma. He and two other Green Berets executed Thai Khac Chuyen, a South Vietnamese Gamma agent for being a North Vietnamese spy in 1969. They drugged Chuyen, took him out on a boat into Nha Trang Bay, shot him twice in the head, weighed his body down with chains and dumped him into the South China Sea.
Budge and several others were charged with murder, but in September 1969 Secretary of the Army, Stanley Resor announced that all charges would be dropped since the CIA, in the interests of national security, had refused to make its personnel available as witnesses, therefore making any manner of a fair trial impossible.posted @ Tuesday, August 7, 2012 - 00:47
[quote][b]armamentalist[/b] - The only count that matters is the more than 1,000 babies EACH YEAR who Doug McKillip saved from the abortionists.
Personally knowing Doug for over 25 years, I find it hard to believe that Doug was trying to save anyone but himself.
Here is what really happened. The Democrats took a severe beating the last time Doug was elected and the Census data did not look good for Democrats in this area either. So Doug decided it would be in his best interest to switch parties. But to try to make sure that the Republicans forgot all about his past transgressions, he picked a far right topic that he knew that with a superior number of Republicans in both the State House and Senate would pass and waited for an election year to introduce the bill.
I also provide further proof of Doug. He claims to have become a Christian in May of 2009 but remained and was re-elected a Democrat until December of 2010. If his faith is so important to him, why did he wait 18 months and go through an election before mentioning his new found faith?
As I have said many times, Doug is an opportunist who would sell out his own children if there was benefit for him. I am glad to see him gone from public office and good riddance.posted @ Thursday, August 2, 2012 - 13:29
[quote][b]mcdawg[/b] - They likely live in the neighborhood so get on it quickly and lets get them arrested and prosecuted[/quote]
But what will really happen is the police will arrest them, Judge Barron will give them a $1500 - $2500 bond, and when they finally go to trial (after committing several more crimes and being released on a low bond again), the DA will plea bargain and they will all walk free with probation.posted @ Saturday, July 28, 2012 - 09:00

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.

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
