White House preps legal case for immigration steps

@TeeWee: to date, it's not been repeated, mistake or not.

...but that's never stopped you from insinuating, nay, outright predicting yet another currently non-existent reality is just around the corner.

...which reminds me...have they taken your guns yet?

On Syria, Obama faces questions on Congress' role

Obama's best strategy would be to decide what needs doing...and then ask Congress for the opposite.

White House preps legal case for immigration steps

@TeeWee: your premises are based upon conjecture that has not happened.

Immigration reform is yet another in a long list of needs for the country...that cannot get worked on for the polarization of the parties.

...meanwhile, cons long for a true leader...like Reagan...who supported amnesty. Must make your head spin.

yeah, racism and class warfare are 2 distinctly different things. There are far more poor whites by numbers than all other races in America combined.

Towery: Political polling is 'blood sport for nerds'

Towery is the Troy St of pollsters...no one expects him to win. He'd be good, except for everyone else being better.

Largest Kroger in Georgia opened Wednesday in north Athens

@nowheregirl: yeah, I see Ingles has good coffee at $4.98 a bag this week. I'm with you on that though. I'll likely shop them both, at least for a while. Would hate to lose Ingles for the county...well, and the competition...wouldn't want the new Kroger to be 'the only grocer around' either.

yeah, but it creates an impulse to avoid the store. Maybe if they put bike lanes in...

@bobbidiboo: maybe they could add features like some parks and put in various workout stations along the route? At least have locker rooms.

Largest Kroger in Georgia opened Wednesday in north Athens

nerd I am, I did a walkthru yesterday afternoon. Half the time I make the trip into town Krogers to save $20 over Ingles shopping closer to home, so was really looking forward to the convenience.

This place might be too big for me. My wife says, 'skip your workout on groceries day'...I think she's right if I use this store.

It's like the inversion of a Walmart superstore - 3/4 grocery selection, 1/4 minimal department store.

I need bananas, milk, and shampoo...that's over a 1/3 mile minimum. I don't mind the extra 3 minutes drive from Ingles, but the extra 30 minutes to cover the aisles could become an issue.

We'll try it some and see. If nothing else, I already see where Ingles has lowered some of their ridiculous pricing. We'll see.

Rosin, Asch, Merchant: Why the 'ice bucket challenge' is social media success story

did the author mention how comparatively easy the challenge is as well? Would it go viral if it were hard or involved more than finding a bucket, filling it with water, and a recording?

how about an ice-bucket full of food to the food-bank challenge?

Study: Social media users shy away from opinions

we had a discussion recently on FB about the anonymity of posters here...FB is not anonymous. This place, sorta, more for some than others. Lot of from the hip opinions, sometimes even discussion, but rarer.

I do like to keep my FB comparatively light. It's for fun and keeping in touch.

Immigration shaping up as leading election issue

"...and people have really been awakened to the immigration issue where they haven't been before..."

..as in, say, during the recent republican administrations? Or, is he just referring to it being another election year?

Today's editorial cartoon

"We must begin to retake control of government. "

great sound-byte...what's it mean?

To me, an end to Citizens United allowing corporations to buy elections, an end to gerrymandering that allows parties to nullify votes, an end to trail-less voting that leaves the count up to who knows who? An end to political perks the public does not receive like govt health insurance, golden pensions, and Congress-to-lobbyist jobs. For a few suggestions...

Why not let the courts decide exactly who abused their power here?

Nunn, Perdue square off in first Senate debate

can't quite make out your hidden implication...that somehow Perdue represents Georgians...because he grew up here?

...well, unless of course you equate the common Georgian with Dollar General - the importation of Chinese products, sold by minimum wage workers, who are subsidized by taxpayer's food stamps. That Georgian?

..or the one that sees that as a rockin business plan - socialized labor, with privatized profit?

gosh, as long as he's not liberal, who cares right?

What Others Say: Religious discussion should be encouraged (The Times, Gainesville)

@Used2baFreeCountry: so your response is 'nah, nah, Christians are still better..'???

doesn't really sound like a foundation of contentment, happiness, or fulfillment. Or are you declaring you're not Christian, as you post your anger and discontentment daily. ..

it is one thing to 'allow' religious preference...quite another for, say, a coach to lead a team on one consistent form of religious activity. ...But then again, that's like a 'duh' moment. Only clouded for those who 'know' their religion is the 'only' one. ...as so many politicians on the right claim. ]

...hence, the rage and anger on the left...

    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
