Howdy Miss Nowheregirl. Well, I had to post it since Jerry should have known about posting personal pictures on the Internet.

TeeWee, you are right about DUI enforcement being "a cash cow for all involved in the criminal justice system."

Obama's Iraq aim: contain, not destroy, extremists

All this reminds me of "3 days of the Condor".

Turner: Do we have plans to invade the Middle East?
Higgins: Are you crazy?
Turner: Am I?
Higgins: Look, Turner…
Turner: Do we have plans?
Higgins: No. Absolutely not. We have games. That's all. We play games. What if? How many men? What would it take? Is there a cheaper way to destabilize a regime? That's what we're paid to do.
. . .
Higgins: Fact is, there was nothing wrong with the plan. Oh, the plan was alright, the plan would've worked.
Turner: Boy, what is it with you people? You think not getting caught in a lie is the same thing as telling the truth?
Higgins: No. It's simple economics. Today it's oil, right? In ten or fifteen years, food. Plutonium. And maybe even sooner. Now, what do you think the people are gonna want us to do then?
Turner: Ask them.
Higgins: Not now — then! Ask 'em when they're running out. Ask 'em when there's no heat in their homes and they're cold. Ask 'em when their engines stop. Ask 'em when people who have never known hunger start going hungry. You wanna know something? They won't want us to ask 'em. They'll just want us to get it for 'em!
Turner: Boy, have you found a home.

Why does Athens Talks no longer have a spot on front page ?

Okay, I tried to present some music.

"It's no good to write a deliberate anti-drug song and hope that it will catch. Because the general thing is that people will be upset by that. It would disturb them to have someone else shoving something down their throat. So the best thing to do is offer something that seems ambiguous—that on study or on reflection actually can be seen to be "anti"—which the song "Cocaine" is actually an anti-cocaine song. If you study it or look at it with a little bit of thought ... from a distance ... or as it goes by ... it just sounds like a song about cocaine. But actually, it is quite cleverly anti-cocaine."---Eric Clapton

Then she sits on the front porch with a 12 gauge on her lap, ready to blast away at any stranger that lurks in the shadows. God help us if we try to bring someone new around.

Man impersonating police officer fires shotgun at Athens homeless camp

And I thought when I was going to read this story that Blalock was cleaning out a camp.

Instead I don't know what he was doing. I'm just disgusted.

Man impersonating police officer fires shotgun at Athens homeless camp

I'm sick of all these homeless camps around Athens.

There was one by Family Housing off East Campus, where they didn't even have cat holes; just waste everywhere.

I rode the UGA Health Sciences bus yesterday and had an encounter with 2 homeless men. One was shouting "F*** me!" and "Yeah, I'd f*** that!" to every female that he saw.

There's another homeless camp off Baxter near the school.

These homeless camps around Athens are clearly a safety issue.

There are children at UGA's family housing. There are children at the middle school and elementary school.

The trash is nasty. I've seen used condoms. Needles. Nasty.

And then folks give them money but these homeless are not using the money except to pay for the homeless prostitutes, meth, and cigarettes and cigars and beer and whiskey.

I'm tired of the homeless prostitutes on Baxter soliciting me when I'm walking.

Providing portable toilets and dumpsters are not part of the solution.

The goal is to get rid of encampments and find people permanent housing. But when the homeless don't want help, or are mentally ill, I don't know what the answer is.

I agree that the economy is bad. And AmeriKa is becoming more and more a police state. But there is a difference between being poor and needy, and being so nasty and militant and aggressive and not trying to better one's self.

I do appreciate the folks at Mercy Health Clinic for helping people.

License plate readers raise questions cocerning government over-reach

[quote][b]dahreese[/b] - "Civil liberties are at stake because police can now track and log the whereabouts of innocent citizens."
That is the whole purpose.
It emanates from Home Land Security.
But Americans will get used to it and will be just as willy-nilly towards it as they have become willy-nilly towards being watched all the time via cameras. Yet they will continue to be told, and will continue to believe, and will continue to claim "We live in a free country."
Americans are asleep and do not wish to be bothered [/quote]

GSP troopers getting ready to enforce 'slowpoke' law

I disagree. This is "Idiocracy" in action.

First of all, just because there is a posted speed limit, it does not mean that one should drive at that speed.

Jeff Rothman, an Athens defense attorney who specializes in motor vehicle law, said that the slowpoke law will be difficult to enforce. “The big question is what if someone’s doing the speed limit and are they able to be pulled over” for a citation, Rothman said. “It’s challengeable in that it the law may be vague for the person who is doing the speed limit.”--Athens Banner

I agree with Attorney Rothman.

I'm former GSP. I know what goes on in a Patrol Post. I know what goes on out on the "big road".

GSP needs to get off their smartphones and actually "PATROL". 10-38 those 10-55s and do something about all these drivers texting and talking.

I know Col. Hitchens and the law is stupid. He says it's supposed to stop "road rage". But what it does in my opinion, is encourage speeding and reckless driving and make it that much unsafer to actually drive in Georgia.

Now, I do agree that a lot of those drivers in the left lanes are on their cell phones, and it's frustrating to drive in Atlanta.

It's sad that we need to continually add laws for things that should be regulated by common sense and just generally not being a selfish self-absorbed ***hole.

I don't understand why people cannot seem to grasp the left lane as a passing lane. It works on the Autobahn: people pass on the left and then they get the f*** back to the right as soon as possible.

So if one is driving the no more than the posted speed limit, and some idiot is speeding, say driving in excess of 90 mph, a Georgia driver has to move over in order to let the dangerous driver pass.

Cpl. Webb, you say: "That’s taking the law into your own hands. If you’re really concerned about someone’s driving, make a call to the local 911 center and give a vehicle description and tag number.”

Can you say STUPID?

edie brickell - what i am

I can't post the video to "Working Class Hero" because he says bad words. So look it up yourself and maybe you can understand how the elite are controlling us with lies of religion, lies from governments, lies from public schools, and media.

And by the way, I was a trooper and I was a teacher.

"As soon as your born they make you feel small
by giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
Working Class Hero is something to be
Keep you doped with religion, sex and T.V.
and you think you're so clever and classless and free
but you're still f****** peasants as far as I can see"
--John Lennon

And dahreese, if you're such a follower of the government controlled mainstream media, why are certain words not allowed to be posted here, yet children can live in sickness and poverty and suffer?

    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
