Broun again named on 'most corrupt' list

Frankly, I think questionable ethics are the least of Rep. Broun's problems.

Time running out on lobbyists' game freebies for politicians

Here's information on integrity in state government:

Can you guess where Georgia ranks? Hint: it's the same spot we usually earn in education!

Woman says voodoo doll of her was on TV

Clearly this woman is mentally ill and needs help.

Two war vets disagree over 'service dog' in Athens gun store

[quote][b]herschel_84[/b] - A properly trained guard dog would not be distracted by the presence of another dog.

Exactly..something tells me the "guard dog" is the teddy bear in this situation...

From cartoon characters to a sandwich, Athens voters cast interesting write-in votes

@New Dawg:

Well, that make two of us sick then, because it makes me sick that this knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing, 19th-century throw back in our representative in Congress.

On the international stage our country will be as completely irrelevant as Mexico in fifty years if we keep electing buffoons like this. They LOVE guys like him in China and Russia.

Charles Darwin gets 4,000 write-in votes in Athens against Rep. Broun

[quote][b]hurriedbloom[/b] - @barryhollander: HuffPost picked it up already -

Thanks for the link...I hadn't seen the actual video of Broun's speech.

Now I feel ridiculous having voting for Darwin because Paul Broun is COMEDY GOLD....those deer heads...I think I may have ruptured something laughing at him...

Rally to write in Darwin over Broun set for 5 p.m. today at UGA Arch

Broun is actually a member of the House's Science, Space, and Technology committee. Yep, the guy that thinks the earth is 10,000 year old is one of the ones making decisions on our country's science policy.

Broun: Evolution, big bang theory are "lies straight from the pit of hell"


You're right, but why shouldn't they? He's the perfect distillation of their beliefs!

Machete-wielding man arrested for menacing Athens cemetery worker

As other have said, the Oconee Hill cemetery workers are notoriously rude jerks. My hat is off to Mr. Haas for giving them a taste of their own medicine. Apparently, that didn't go over to well with the little crybabies; too bad their sniveling, cowardly behavior will be preserved for posterity here with this article.

There's no way this guy just randomly started chasing cemetery workers around with a machete; they obviously did something to start the confrontation.

Records detail George Zimmerman's medical injuries

I'm totally confused. Don't these injuries merely prove that Martin was STANDING HIS GROUND? There's no reason, other than gross negligence on Zimmerman's part, for there to have been any physical contact between fact, Zimmerman was told not to confront him by the police dispatcher.

Frankly, sounds like Zimmerman simply got his butt whipped, and resorted to a gun when he wasn't man enough to get the job done with his fists.

Police evict protesters from camp, Occupy Athens plans to keep asking for public hearings

I'm impressed that that you've taken an article about a group of morons and actually managed to make yourself look even dumber than they are.

Obama says Brazil a model for peace

I've doubted Obama's allegiance to this country and its ideals all along.

I doubt your allegiance to this country and its ideals too. Pretty ironic, huh?

Like most things, the irony is no doubt lost on you.

High court affirms tax exemption for Nuci's

@joeleejohnson: Uh, the tax code already exists almost solely to keep the American aristocracy afloat; nobody is going to go through the trouble of creating a tax shelter because of this ruling who hasn't already done so.

Georgia commissioners: Locals Echols and Hudgens part of Republican clean sweep

Makes almost as much sense as addressing food safety by electing a past president of the Georgia Agribusiness Council.

    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
