"Seymour Hersh has got some extreme ideas on how to fix journalism – close down the news bureaus of NBC and ABC, sack 90% of editors in publishing and get back to the fundamental job of journalists which, he says, is to be an outsider."

"He is angry about the timidity of journalists in America, their failure to challenge the White House and be an unpopular messenger of truth."--By Lisa O'Carroll, The Guardian

The Right to Remain Silent. We are in a police state..

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

Ravenbear thank you.

You are right! In fact, right vs left, rep. vs democrat is a game to control us.

Instead, readers of the Athens Banner engage in ad hom attacks, and say, "Oh, you shouldn't worry about the NSA. If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to worry about."

Thank you for your posts Raven.

This is indeed a troubling time. Bad times are coming. We are in a police state. This comes from a former trooper and teacher. But sadly, it seems as if we live in "Idiocracy" and the average American believes what the Government tells them and tv tells them. How sad...

Open enrollment starts today for Obamacare; many still confused

"Many Americans may choose to pay the penalty in 2014 in lieu of paying for health insurance. But note that the penalty is slated to increase each year:

In 2015, it goes up to $325 or 2 percent of your household income, whichever is greater;
In 2016, it goes up to $695 or 2.5 percent of your household income, whichever is greater; and
In 2017 and beyond, it goes up to $695 plus a cost-of-living adjustment, or 2.5 percent of your household income, whichever is greater."--By Brett Snider, Esq. on September 26, 2013 8:09 AM

REPORT: OBAMACARE PROVISION WILL ALLOW 'FORCED' HOME INSPECTIONS BY GOVERNMENT AGENTS

Why is Obamacare so unaffordable? Because it was conceived as a political weapon of mass economic destruction
www.naturalnews.com/042211_Obamacare_economic_destruction_American_worke...

"Right now, all across America, employees are receiving notices that their insurance coverage is being dropped because it isn't "compliant" with Obamacare. Simultaneously, employers everywhere are slashing jobs, cutting hours and downsizing their operations just to stay afloat by avoiding the most punishing requirements of Obamacare. Across the economy, Obamacare is devastating American workers and casting tens of millions of people into a state of despair."--by Mike Adams

"As I've said for the past year or so, the real focus for the rest of us should be how to survive the day that the federal food stamp program is turned off. The day the food stamp benefit cards stop working is the day a countdown is initiated that will end in riots rolling out across every major U.S. city. That countdown might be somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 - 9 days, give or take. It all depends on how hungry people get and whether the weather is hot or cold. (Hot weather leads to far more riots. Cold weather tends to keep people inside. The most dangerous scenario is economic collapse during the summer months.)"--by Mike Adams

'Breaking Bad' is ending run still looking good

Finally. It's over. It's like the old Bill Cosby joke about time and his old hat. It guess that I've got so much time in watching this stupid show, that I have to watch the end.

"Breaking Bad" is not good television to me.

Bryan Cranston is a great actor and a true gentleman, but I disdain "Breaking Bad."

I like also how they seem to forget about their small child, and then it's like the writers say, "Ooops, they have a kid! Where is she?"

"If you watch AMC's hit series "Breaking Bad" you probably aren't a huge fan of Walter White's wife Skyler (Anna Gunn)." --Kirsten Acuna

Prices at fuel pumps continue to decline

[quote][b]Foghorn123[/b] - November 13 Crude Oil is at this moment $103.64 down $1.11, RBOB gasoline for October is $2.62 down $0.06. I fear that as the Fed keeps printing money the dollar will continue to weaken and while gasoline supplies will continue to increase because of the poor economy, we will be paying more because of the weak dollar. . Right now the Canadian dollar is worth more than the American. I have had arguments with a macro economics professor friend of mine that we cannot have higher taxes and runaway inflation as a result of the Fed. money printing policy. She said history points to one or the other. I believe when the economy crashes, the USA will make history.

So all y'all leftists that disdain me, how do y'all deal with the fact that Obama is killing innocent children with drone strikes?

How do y'all deal with the fact that Obama has a Nobel Peace Prize?

Why do y'all hate Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership?

Why do y'all support John Kerry?

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    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.

    Winter storm drama

    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
