trouble with being an incumbent...it's hard to say what you're 'going' to do...when we can see what you did. Rather, didn't.

Towery: Federal response to current crises is chaotic

seems several times a week the paper runs these smear blogs. Same bleating of lies. Same listing of current 'scandals' that never pan out further than the mere repetition.

whatever happened to editorials and opinions? Was there once a vision to educate and elucidate in the press? Or is that just my imagination, a forged false memory?

Nurses. Health care workers dealing directly with an infected patient. Not 'you'.

They have reason to be scared. Not you, the general public, the American people.

isn't there a more substantive fear that could be peddled? This one is so weak it makes the paper look desperate.

here's some ideas...you have a higher chance of fracking coming to your backyard. An accidental overdose of tylenol from the medicine cabinet. Lightning striking your bike. Palin becoming senator. The Waltons buying Georgia.

catching ebola reminds me of old 50's horror movies...the only way that slow monster is going to catch you, is if you trip over that tree root.

Madison Co. school board votes to modify Christian monument at high school

I wish there had been the same controversy when Pepsi brand got the right to install a bank of junk food machines in the cafeteria in exchange for...an electronic scoreboard on the football field.

faith as sound-bytes. Instead of example.

"As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord". Lord's brand. Found only in select churches. Buy some today. Or get left behind.

Purcell: Criticism of Obama isn't too little, it's too late

gotta love these revisionists who always always fail to mention the choices of the time...

McCain and the brainless Palin? Romney ship your jobs overseas and Lyin Ryan?

really, when one complains on Obama, realize he was and is still the better choice of what repubs and cons had to offer.

...but this 'most polarizing and divisive; meme? Seriously? It is easy to go back and find dozens of public statements of 'we will not ever work this this guy'...from before day one.

Jensen: President has lost people's trust

talk about trust issues...One can easily look up the polls and see this author's numbers are totally made up lies.

disappointing this newspaper allows this

false numbers, easily found, are not opinions. They are conscious lies.

Today's editorial cartoon

fear sells newspapers. It gets politicians votes. It ups military spending which allows cuts to education, roads, basic services. It allows govt to take rights away and curtail liberty.

ISIS does not scare me. Ebola does not scare me. Ignorance...that scares the b'jeezus out of me.

"Amid the waves of fear and continual headlines about terror plots, we, the people, have now largely been relegated to the role of so many frightened spectators when it comes to our government and its actions. "

kinda like Big Foot pictures.

you can follow the mythology and find 'facts' to support it....or you can listen to 97 out of 100 scientists in a room ...or you can freakin look with your own eyes and senses.

and we note the CEO of Exxon has publicly on record unequivocally declared global warming is real, and is man-made.

Larkins: Madison County High School monument is constitutional

I don't mind the religious aspect. Some religions are just that weak they need constant attention.

it's the right-wing indoctrination of high school ,,,

- start with a questionable supposition of "if:"...

and follow it with an unrelated conclusion. Make it pithy so they sound logical.

Broun: Urge Senate to vote on Federal Reserve audit

'since the Fed was established, bad things happened'...is not what is universally known...as logic.

i.e., if there's a connection you're making, then show it.

'since the fed was established, the Mets won the series' is a true statement - but does not equate to any connection between the two.

auditing the Fed might be a good idea. Might even go forward if a sane person was promoting it. Not likely though, being the banks own Congress.

well, 'consistent' if you can only see black and white...But, you're the same folk who too often tell us..."there's a reason for this war". ...yeah, maybe, and I'm not weighing in...but maybe there's a far better reason for this 'war' than the last one.IIs that in your range of possibilities?

according to repubiclans...if there is a war...you really should support your president. That's what was screamed 24/7 so many years ago. When they made that 'intelligence mistake'. Like the same fools now spend their time not allowing Obvama the same bogus excuse.

yeah, consistency. Well shown.

Thomas: Obama spreads the blame for missing ISIS rise

what an incredibly freakin sad commentary. I wish I had the time, nay interest to refute EVERY one of those badly repeated meaningless (I mean, if you looked at reality) comments.

Geez, if all old Cal has left is repeating blank baseless memes, he should be hammered out.

    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
