There are good people out there. We just never hear about them.

Police: Man was locking, not stealing from cars

A couple nights in a warm bed, a half dozen hot meals, a complete physical, hot shower to boot, and he'll have learned his lesson.

Shoplifter sought after stealing vodka

Hope it was some good vodka. I don't partake of that though. Bourbon, and good stuff at that, is my sipping beverage of choice. But you enjoy my friend, as they don't have a happy-hour in the pokey. Luckily for you the odds are that you'll be out on probation in time to tipple another round.

Athens cop pepper sprays alleged shoplifter

Wednesday? He's out on bond, set low enough that he could afford it. And he's back today picking through the "after Christmas" sales racks seeing if the five-fingered-discount is being honored today.

Meanwhile the cop is still writing up reports.

The DA will eventually dismiss the charges as a forgetful chopper. At worst he'll be banned (but never enforced) from Bells.

Oh, and fighting with a cop should result in a harsher sentence. but you know. It's ACC. The land of the cushy criminal "just us" system that taxpayers pay for, over and over and over and over, never getting anything but the same revolving door and lame punishments, and that's if they even bother to try the case.

Speaking of Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny...

Time got by on me. But no one reads this anyway, so.....

Maybe I'll be back in another week. Maybe not.

The pulse is gone, no brain activity......ain't that the truth though?

Timberlake: Global warming data misleading

There may actually be global warming, climate change, or whatever they tag it as next year.

The real question should be, will taxing American to death solve any of it?

Spell it out all you pro tax liberals. Explain how it'll all be better if only the government was in charge of everything.

Killings of 2 New York officers trigger backlash

You reap what you sow. And discord, violence and hatred are strewn about more frequently than love, respect and honor. Not one of the protest leaders, civil rights pimps, or elected "leaders" has encouraged their flock to obey the law. Quite the opposite actually.

Obama: As a black man he's been mistaken for valet

[quote][b]AbidingDude[/b] -

Kind of an odd claim for a guy who wanted to be a public servant...


And he's not even a good one at that.

Obama: As a black man he's been mistaken for valet

[Quote] Obama said. "It's one thing for me to be mistaken for a waiter at a gala. It's another thing for my son to be mistaken [Quote/]

Really? He's dragging out that "son" claim. Again.

Only the 1% can afford to valet. The rest of up poor taxpayers have to self park. That costs too.

Dupuy: Torture is sadistic catharsis

I would say: Better than letting the terrorists decide how they should be treated.

Besides, don't they get the prize? The 700 virgins and all? Wouldn't it be our duty to get them to their promised land that much sooner? I'm all for doing them a favor.

Just say'n.

Oconee deputy discovers meat peddler has long rap sheet

Who'd buy food form the back of "some guy's truck"? We've moved up into the 19th century you know, and people just don't act like that now-a-days. We gots google and such, and a grocery just a few miles from here.

VIDEO: Pakistan mourns 142 slain in Taliban school attack

The real problem we face is the fact that they are bringing their ideology here to us, and will kill us if we don't follow along in their demented beliefs.

There already have been attacks against Americans, here on America soil, on military bases, in the workplace,...... Yet the press and politicians can't bring themselves to call it terrorism.

The mentality of these people is beyond comparison to anything we've had to deal with.

Security adequate at Clarke Central-Cedar Shoals athletic events, officials say

Wouldn't need security if teachers could whoop you upside your head like they did back when I was in school, and then get spanked by the principal, then by mom when you got home, then by dad when he got home.

Ah the good old days..... When teachers and school administrators doled out punishment to misbehaving students, where parents worked, and when they too disciplined their children for acting up.

Park: Domestic turmoil reflects arrogance of American foreign policy

Yet, ACC has one dead cop (could have easily been two) who were not "militarized" while practicing their (I'm sure) mandated hug-a-thug policy when Hood was pulled over.

I'm quite sure you'd rather see dozens upon dozens of cop funerals instead of one more criminal being buried.

What is different, and what normal people fear, is the decline of any semblance of moral structure, where people - ALL PEOPLE - respect life, other people's property, and the rule of law. Don't like the law, then change it through the system in place. Congress, the state legislatures, county commissions and city councils meet regularly.

But please, don't hold up thugs - both were breaking the law and escalated matters - don't hold them up as idols and don't make them the poster children for what ever might be your grievance against society.

McFeatters: Strange things happening in U.S. economy

Yes @cyou299: They're making an insane amount of money from all those non-customers that don't have two plug nickels to rub together. Sorry if profitable companies abhor you so. Maybe Obamacare has a pill for that.

Studio head, producer apologize for Jolie, Obama remarks

Hollywood. You're dealing with egos bigger than the mega mansions they stay in from time to time. That they bad mouth each other, then hug and smooch on the red carpet, then back stab one another, then make casting calls for each other's film and TV projects, that's just the biz. It's not unlike any other business, save for the commas in the paychecks.

And yes, that Sharpton is involved shows that it's not about ethics, morals or decency, it's about the money. Can't wait till they do a movie about that thieving crook. It'll be epic.

Driving while black? App developers aim to help

Not only the cops enforce the bureaucracy, so does Code Enforcement, the Health Department, DOL (elevators and escalators), OSHA, and a host of other agencies and departments. Ahhh, the hell with it, let's not make people obey the laws, or is that just the tiny ones.

Either way, if you fight the Code Enforcement, Health inspector, DOL inspectors, OSHA inspectors (all cops in their own right), the IRS...yeah, try it some time.... You'll end up getting the raw end of the deal.

None of us ~like~ the stinking laws, especially the little ones that say I have to drive 55 (you know you speed too), or those pesky stop signs we all roll through. I've had tail lights out, and the expensive car tells me and eventually I get it fixed, but the POS car doesn't, so it goes unnoticed for months maybe.

And the last speeding ticket I got I sat there and smiled and complied. Yeah, the ticket total was a chunk, but I thought, that's a half cent for all the other times I sped. Well worth it. And then I sped to my destination.

Plenty of time for arguing my rights and what they can or can't do and the injustice of the my own head ...after I've driven away


Plenty of time to file a complaint later, with the officers supervisors, city hall, county commissioners, or at the state level as appropriate. Fight at that time and you'll lose for sure. Fight later on, and you might just change things.

Carter: Advice for dealing with police

[quote][b]swimdawg68[/b] -

I watch MSNBC a lot but I watch it knowing that it is not pure news, it all has a political slant. Fox on the other hand claims to be "fair and balanced" and it claims to be news. That is my gripe with Fox because it obviously favors the right but won't admit it. [/quote]


All of the news is slanted. As news consumers we tend to believe what mirrors our pre-set beliefs. It takes a lot of reading and listening from a variety of sources, both US based and international news sources, to get close to the truth. Then again, you have to know that it's often times just what the players in the story want you to hear. So 94% true, laced with a good bit of created truths, less the omitted truths, and a dash of grey matter to muddy things up a tad.

VIDEO: Senate report: Harsh CIA tactics didn't work

The problem @AbidingDude: is that the lying doesn't stop when the party in power is replaced by another color. Red, Blue, purple even, it doesn't matter. They lie. The reasons vary, well, the audience varies, but the reason is the same. To keep us divided.

    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
