[quote][b]matt1141a[/b] - HAHAHA, govt stats like this only serve to bolster the fact that govt stats are total BS.
How is it that unemployment is 5 percent in Athens when Athens-Clark Co has the highest poverty rate in the ENTIRE NATION for counties over 100k population?
These stats dont even count the droves of people who live their entire lives on welfare, or the homeless.
You are a complete moron if you think only 5 percent of Athenians are unemployed.

And for the students who are supporting the economy in Athens:
Are student loans the next subprime disaster?
The average debt load has grown by 30% in 5 years. Delinquencies rose by 22% in the same period. This spells trouble on many levels.

Look at the jobs listed at the UGA job site, and tell me if those are good jobs, and also tell me that all those jobs are still available. I say BS! UGA HR says that they have jobs still available from 2007! BS! And look at the salaries listed too!
Look how many are:

Tango Mike-Mike aka That Mean Mexican. A man of Mexican and Yaqui Indian heritage who had battled racism nearly every day of his early adult life, this guy had somehow survived despite losing both of his parents by the time he was 7 – when times had been too hard and food was scarce, he'd dropped out of middle school to work back-breaking labor picking cotton to support himself and his brothers and sisters.

"This lawsuit is for your rights and for your safety. These bills do absolutely nothing to make Colorado a safer place to live, to work, to play or to raise a family. Instead these misguided, unconstitutional bills will have the opposite effect because they greatly restrict the right of decent, law-abiding citizens to defend themselves, their families and their homes. This isn't good public policy. These are really awful bills. They are unenforceable and encourage disrespect for the law." --Weld County Sheriff John Cooke

A New 'Smart Rifle' Decides When To Shoot And Rarely Misses
"A new rifle goes on sale on Wednesday, and it's not like any other. It uses lasers and computers to make shooters very accurate. A startup gun company in Texas developed the rifle, which is so effective that some in the shooting community say it should not be sold to the public."--by Mark Dewey, May 15, 2013 , NPR

“Life’s tough … it’s even tougher if you’re stupid.”
The paradigm of Left vs. Right, Liberal vs. Conservative, Republican vs. Democrat is meant to control all of us and make us fight with each other. The most effective lies have an element of truth. A little truth gives the lie a foothold in the mind and prevents the less vigilant from looking deeper. The false Left / Right Paradigm is no exception. The power elite of this country and the world over have capitalized on common points of contention among world views of the citizenry and have managed to polarize them into two political categories : Liberal and Conservative.

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
