Emergency unemployment benefits don't cause unemployment. (Ketchup is not a vegetable either.)

The "National Bureau of Economic Research" (highly partisan) gives you (imaginary) cover for your heartlessness.

The message here is "Make them suffer. Put 'em on the streets. That'll teach them to be unemployed."

Auburn QB Marshall, after beating UGA (immaculate deflection) gave a short interview after the game. I heard it but could not decipher it. I guess it's MY language skills that are bad.

Later dude!

It can only get better now.

Maybe, just maybe on 4th and long, with the game on the line players in the secondary will know basic football fundamentals and KNOCK THE BALL DOWN!

Now we all have to watch that Auburn "immaculate deflection" clip for the rest of our lives.


Really glad you're leaving

The GOP members are saving that money for further tax cuts for the rich (the vast majority of which have inherited their wealth and priviledged position). That is the only costituency they serve (or even see).

Their thinking : "Make it illegal it won't happen ever again." ("and they all lived happily ever after")

Did it work out that way with the war on drugs?

Use crosswalks people. Walking into the path of multiple fast-moving vehicles in the fog can, and will get you killed.

Disparaging gay people in a GQ Magazine interview is like disparaging athletes in a Sports Illustrated interview.

Anybody else catch the irony of this guy being interviewed in GQ magazine? Did they want hunting fashon tips? Grooming advice?

It won't change the Supreme Court's ruling on the law.

It is just an attempt to prevent people from getting affordable heath care in order to boost corporate profits for the medical industrial complex.

Corporate profits are obviously much more important than human health to the tea party.

I predict that if Muslim prayers were offered at the start of local government proceedings in the U.S. many, many Christians would object.

Why don't we just leave the prayers of all religions out of government?

I suspect the real reason is that some Cristians want to assert their authority as the dominant faith in order to dominate.

This same group feels the same way about the holiday season. They call it a war on Christmas when other groups are respected and included.

Race is a myth. It exists only in the mind of the believer. Physical differences between "races" are recent and superficial. Scientifically : genetically, evolutionarily we are one people. "Racial" problems arise because people continue to believe the myth.

All we know about the poster is that they claim to be a "Christian". Should they not be protesting Christianity? Better yet, protest those that claim to be Christian and prove that they are not.

The racist poster (whoever and wherever they are) will be getting what they want at noon, Friday on Sanford bridge - lots and lots of attention.

Ironically the "Tea Party" hates a health care system very similar to the very successful one currently operating in the home of the actual, historic tea party patiots - Massachusetts' Romneycare (bonus irony or maybe idiocy).

Strict adherance to the 3 tier system (a relic of the 1930s) must go. Limited self distribution is the way states like NC (more breweries than GA and FL combined), MI, CO and OR let the way and all have thriving craft beer markets. GA's craft beer marketis currently lagging because of our inability to wrestle anti-competitive powers from the few anointed monopolists (every alcohol product is sold by 1 and only 1 wholesaler) in a group of oligopolists who currently have a stranglehold on GA consumers and legislators.

This severely antiquated system costs GA great beer, jobs and sorely needed tax revenue.

It is ridiculous that package stores can sell growlers but brew-pubs cannot.

Without reform GA will soon fall behind SC, AL TN and MS.

In a thriving beer market there will be greater opportinities for wholesalers too. I hope they are not so short sighted to understand that.

He should know it is the "Democratic" party not the "Democrat" party.

We don't call the GOP the "Republic" party.

Illiteracy hurts your arguement Mr. Reagan.

As usual, the wholesalers (with their legislated monopolies) are upset about not getting their cut. They fight in favor of the antiquated 3 tier system because it only benefits them. They behave like mobsters when they don't get their way.

Georgia needs to follow the lead of much more progressive states (like NC) and allow limited self distribution. Without it GA will continue to lag behind. It costs us great beer, jobs as well as sorely needed tax revenue.

If the local package store can sell growlers why not the local brewpub? I'll give you a hint. Severely antiquated, restrictive beer laws supported by alcohol wholesalers.

Republicans in the General Assembly take note. This is a pro business, pro jobs proposal. Vote for it.

Being able to take home a growler is safer than drinking 1 or 2 more before driving. A public safety benefit is here too.

    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
