The only thing valid that republicans has against Holder and the Obama Adminiatration and only three comments. Wow. In a month it is vacation time so our minds will be focused on other things. CBO released an interesting report as well that fell under the radar. Que Sera Sera.posted @ Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 10:37

@King Minos: HA! There is no shame in voting for Denson. It is laughable for those to consider her a "D," more like an "R" wrapped in "D's" clothing. But McKillips learned a hard lesson in cloaking.
I welcome all those lost souls looking for direction this weekend. The Athens Classic Center will be estatic taking the fools money this weekend. It helps spead the wealth in an impoverished town. Reagan would be so proud.posted @ Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 16:44
I highly doubt that YOU outnumber us in ATH, even with a convention in town. I also highly doubt there will be any "democratic denizens" out in force this weekend. It will be no different than any other weekend. There will be just a lot more toxic smug in the air filled with scare tactics and anti-common sense centered around the good ole tax payer expanded classic center.
But no drinking and driving, extra police presence this weekend. And to all those visitors, welcome to Athens, GA. Make sure you go shopping and spend, spend, spend.posted @ Tuesday, May 14, 2013 - 19:34
@Censored: Agreed, but from an HR perspective, it is hard to determine a hard worker in today's electronic world. When I was growing up being an insurance salesman was a decent career that paid well and those right out of high school easily pursued. Nowadays due to the status quo, alot of sales jobs -which only requires tenacity and technique- requires 4 years of higher education. Another interesting take is this, look at all the CEO's of today, politicians, administrators and notice what they all have in common. Go back half a century or more and look at the pioneers who founded some of the companies in existence today and notice their education. It is quite interesting, but a college degree/skilled trade provides lots of job security these days. And when it comes to layoffs and promotions, you can work as hard as you want, the man/woman that has never met you, in an office far far far away is gonna look at skills and that degree. Not the same mentality for small businesses but mainly true for the corporate world.posted @ Tuesday, May 14, 2013 - 15:05

"She admitted she was drinking and driving. That is not against the law in Georgia. It is only against the law if you are an impaired driver; we are asserting she was not an impaired driver," said attorney Jackie Patterson

One thing that you can earn that can not ever be taken from you is a college education. Businesses can fail. The government can seize assets. Your business may face eminent domain. But no one can take a college degree from you, not even thieves. And one thing businesses are always looking for is a college education.posted @ Monday, May 13, 2013 - 16:49

In fact, there are those who are told the truth every single day but for some odd reason find it hard to comprehend. So they look for another explanation when they can’t accept the facts. They begin to ponder, well, I don’t like the facts because they don’t suit my theories. It can’t be true because the news is too good to be true. We can’t have something good happening with a democrat in office. There has to be something wrong there just has to be. And the never ending baseless saga begins.
Fortunately, this nauseating concept posed by the right has been tried numerous times in the past and the outcome has always been the same, swept under the rug as nonsense and ultimate defeat.posted @ Friday, May 10, 2013 - 13:02
No we can't afford to occupy more foreign land. We just two years ago closed down military bases in America, one of which was Fort MCallister. There is no real strategic reason for these bases.
But are they free? Didn't think so. NO thanks.posted @ Friday, May 10, 2013 - 12:46
[quote][b]davidxto[/b] - Don't call me a conspiracy political nut because people like me have asked for the truth.[/quote]
Here is the thing, the hearings have been presented and the facts have been given, time and time again. I have said this multiple times but I truely feel that followers of the Benghazi fiasco should understand the chain of command and protocol. But ok, so where is the cover-up? Do you honestly believe that the Obama administration changed the talking-points from a mob attack to a viral video to win an election? Seriously? I think the appropriate question to you - and others - would be why would the Obama administration or in reality, whoever changed the talking points, would do so for whatever purposes? Becuase I have a long list of responses if you think - or others - believe that it was done to win an election.
The facts have been presented, and now they are being fabricated. What is the goal? Obama can not be impeached, so to all those who think that is possible, well, I would suggest reading impeachable offenses. If it is an attempt to stop Hillary Clinton from running in 2016, well, good luck with that. The best opposition is a good candidate, republicans have tried to destroy Obama with all kinds of rhetoric and nonsense and that didn't work to well.
The narrative that Shal was talking about can be expanded to the entire conspiracy anti-Obama rhetoric. He is a muslim, he is a socialist, ABO, one term president, obstructionist, war on everything. This is just another attempt. The only fault I can see in this whole "mistake" is a lack of judgement and bureaucratic red tape. Anything other than that, yes, one might be a political conspiracy nut IMHO. But what is new when it comes to those who oppose the Obama Administration.posted @ Friday, May 10, 2013 - 11:48
How's this: They had a dangerous job, in a dangerous place. They died. Details are somewhat confused, but that's to be expected given the situation- consider how many erroneous details follow any havoc to see other examples of that. Very sorry for them. The End.
See, that's the entire story. The folks screaming "Betrayal!" and "Coverup!" are trying to stick a narrative to the thing that'll further their political goals, and hoping they can sell that. [/quote]

@snarkydude: blacks vote democrat because they know that democrats will give them more? Wow really? I thought blacks voted democrat because of statements like that.posted @ Thursday, May 9, 2013 - 16:33
@snarkydude: same can be said for Romney and white voters. The republican convention displayed it all for the world to see. However, black voters have been increasing presidential election after presidential election. But saying they voted because a black candidate is hard statement to make. Much easier to just say that black people overwhelmingly vote democrat than focusing on "black candidate" because they overwhelmingly voted for Kerry and Gore as well.posted @ Thursday, May 9, 2013 - 16:14
@snarkydude: Or just that more black people are voting.posted @ Thursday, May 9, 2013 - 14:15
