Towery: Federal response to current crises is chaotic

@cyou299:

The quote, "the ends justify the means" accurately describes your position. Can Obama do no wrong? His major flaw, disregarding any political philosophies that I have with him and his administration, is that he is not a leader. This, he is unable to change. Bill Clinton had leadership skills although his leftist political ideology differed from my libertarian philosophy but nonetheless he was a leader. Obama has done more damage to this country because of his lack of leadership than anything else. Wink

FBI: Denver girls may have tried to join jihadis

I say let them go and what happens to them happens to them. Nothing like learning from experience. If they find themselves in trouble there, then oh well. Wink They can always be introduced to drone technology. Wink

Durst: Republicans 'protecting' the right to vote

@AbidingDude:

If an ID should not be a requirement to vote, then an ID should not be a requirement to purchase a firearm, right? Wink

The Constitution protects the right of a citizen to possess a firearm but not to vote for the POTUS. So, logically, the ability to purchase a firearm without an ID should trump any argument that one should not need an ID to vote. Wink

UGA student clad only in jockstrap treated for injuries suffered at west Athens apartment complex

Harrop: Democrats should look kindly on South

[quote][b]dahreese[/b] -

That Republicans fight the registration of minority voters so much is the telling factor of how much they care about them.

[/quote]

History shows that Democrats fight the registration of minority voters (See Bull Conner). Sorry to spoil your fable. It seems that Republicans fight the registration of unlawful, illegal and deceased voters which by chance is your alliance and the Democratic Party's constituents. Wink Big smile

Police: Woman beheaded at Oklahoma workplace

[quote][b]TeeWee[/b] -

@grove600: Thanks grove600 for this news update.  It's sad when a reader must post the news.    

[/quote]

TeeWee, in this day when the mainstream is completely biased (CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC and MSNBC) to the politically correct view and often the current political party in the majority, I have to assume that the media is biased, with malice. There is no other explanation. It's nauseously pathetic. Wink

Column: Gurley shows why he's the Heisman front-runner in Bulldogs' win

"So Gurley told the coaching staff what plays he wanted to run." Why not, it's better calls than the other offensive play caller. With the consistent top five talent that has passed through UGA over the last eleven years, we settle for the same consistent end of season results. It's been "shame on us", the fans, for too long.

Tant: 'Boots on the ground' must put 'feet in the streets'

[quote][b]cyou299[/b] -

I see rant after rant after rant saying he is too weak on this, we must go to war on this, we must yada yada...from the right...day and night.

cons, as usual, have it set up that whatever move Obama makes will be 'wrong'.

factually, the 'push' was made well before Obama got on board. It's historical record now. Of course, this is where they chime in and say 'he doesn't lead'.

[/quote]

Maybe it's just because he is not a natural born nor a "learned" leader. If it's any consolation, Bill Clinton was a leader despite not agreeing with many of his policies. Obama is just not cutout for the job. He was elected by a naive, uneducated, parasitic electorate. History will acknowledge this fact as well. Sorry. Wink

[quote][b]franklingrady[/b] -

@tgb: That's not what I said. It has nothing to do with me "not liking" it. If you wanta criticize his speaking ability, go ahead. But objectively, Obama is a pretty well spoken person, pretty quick in his conversations, a smooth politician, knowledgeable about a wide variety of facts and history...

but is not a leader, unlike other Democratic presidents such as Clinton, which is the epitome of the qualification standard of this position. This...is why he is seen as a failure on the national and world stage Wink

    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
