Marijuana-laced brownies, tea seized in Jackson County drug raid

And how much did this cost the tax payers to get these hardened and dangerous criminals off the streets?

Jeez, legalize the stuff already and let's concentrate on getting and real bad people off the streets.

Jeb Bush remarks expose GOP's immigration problem

I am beginning to believe that Republicans don't understand the word "love" anymore. I believe that they think 'love' is a weakness.

Ideas to get the kids moving this spring

Really? Do kids now need to be told how to move around? Just throw them outside for a couple of hours a day. I mean, how many times does anybody see kids playing outside in their yards anymore? How many kids play streetball anymore? How often does anybody see gradeschool age kids do anything outside anymore that isn't an organized and expensive activity that the parent have to attend?

Just tell them to go outside and play.

Pitts: Tears stain a true face of poverty

“You’re facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a (poor) person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don’t think too much further than that.” —former South Carolina Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer

What year was this said? 2013 or 1855?

Today's editorial cartoon

Heck, I'm still waiting to be trickled on by the "job creators".

Oh wait, nevermind. It has just come to light that there was a misprint when the "Trickle-Down" theory from the 'job creators' or the 1%'ers was proposed. It was meant to be the "Pi$$ed-Down-On" theory of finances.

Now that makes more sense.

Boy, 11, killed while playing with gun

Very sad. But the truth is that we live in a society that praises guns.

Mormon leader outlines opposition to gay marriage

Who really cares what the Mormon's think about gay marriage. I mean, really, who cares what they think. Is this some kind of different, unexpected news from the Mormon tribe?

Georgia misses food stamp backlog deadline

@THE WATCHDAWG: You, a bigot, really have no idea about people and how they live. Just stay barricaded in you house or basement, covered in flop-sweat from fear of anybody who is different than you, which is 99.999% of the people on earth, and allow others to live their life without your paranoid blathering.

House GOP moves against health care law

Republicans have turned into a bunch of anti-christian corporate-minions who pretend they are christians and who say they work for the American people.

What happened to the Grand Ol' Party? It has turned into a bunch of whining shrews full of fear and distrust of everything and will do or say anything to only advance their own agendas of personal wealth and personal power.

Feds may pull funding over Georgia food stamp problems

It seems that the Governor of Georgia hates the Feds so much, he won't take free money from them to help feed and get heath care for Georgia citizens.

Thomas: Government encroaching on church-state line

If they are so christain, why not just pray for their female employee's instead of picking and choosing what part of Obamacare they want to pay for. Kind of like the way most christians pick-and-choose what parts of the Bible they either want to follow or want to ignore, whichever serves them best.

Today's editorial cartoon

@Used2baFreeCountry: Yeah, Used, quoting a Fox News report is always the way to look for fair and unbalanced truth.

Also the NRA should just shut the h@ll up and keep their warped political view to themselves. They are a tax-exempt association yet have waaaay to much pull with our politicians. They, like the churches who promote peace with guns, should all be taxed just like the rest of us, and only than they can blather their stupidity to the slack-mouth masses that follow their fear-fed, low-based way of thinking.

Pakistani Christian gets death in blasphemy case

This is the same type of government that many of the religious Republican Right-wing would love to have for the United States, but with the christian religion using the Bible to put people to death for blaspheme.

KEEP RELIGION OUT OF POLITICS!

Tax churches who preach the gospel of government. Stop pandering to the crazy christian religious fringe groups.

Millions on the sidelines for big health care push

@Yellow Dog: Tell me why my wife and I who don't have any children have to pay out money for school taxes each year? Tell me why I have to pay for oil companies tax breaks and other corporate tax breaks?

The thing is Yellow Dog, you don't have to pay for obamacare but I still have to fund corporations and other people's kids.

Votes, arrests over Medicaid expansion at state Capitol

" House Speaker Pro Tempore Jan Jones, R-Milton, who has argued that Georgia can’t afford Medicaid coverage for hundreds of thousands of uninsured residents under expansion as outlined by the ACA."

What a cold-hearted, fool this guy is. He is just braying the same old tired lie that so many people believe on how states will lose money from expanding Medicare.

So Jonesy, what is the alternative? Oh wait, you don't have one. What a surprise. You got yours, the h@ll with everyone else.

Bill expanding gun carry rights in Ga. passes

[quote][b]sgdog1[/b] - I foresee that in my own church there could be a strong division on the issue.[/quote]

So what you are saying is that christians going to the church you go to are more concerned about carrying weapon that can kill instead of learning about the word of Jesus and how love can cure.

Christians are funny people, I tell you what.

Medical marijuana bill stalls in Georgia Legislature

" That's a nonstarter for senior House Republicans who are concerned about costs."

The cost to whom? The insurance companies?

Health care law has uneven impact on companies

Instead of blaming Obamacare, let's ask why medical cost are so much more expensive in the United States than other countries? It always seem that prescription drugs cost more in the US than anywhere else. Why does a hospital need to charge $15 for a aspirin?

Georgia Senate panel green lights bill restricting state Obamacare help

What fools and buffoons these Republican politicians are. They sure do not act Christians they like to say they are. These people are just bought-and-paid for little-minded people with no concern for anybody else but themselves. They act like little school-yard kids who love ganging up on the one poor kid at school.

These people sicken me.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
