@E.J.: Go to the library, check out a bag of books and when you can't sleep at night read instead of posting endless comments about everything in the world. You will be a much better person for it.posted @ Thursday, May 23, 2013 - 06:03

The real question is what is the relationship between parents and their children? If parents teach their kids some values they wouldn't have to prevent them from doing things like this.posted @ Tuesday, May 21, 2013 - 20:59

@Shalmaneser: Oh yeah? I just found out that along with ammo the DHS is stocking up on azzwipe too. You won't be laughing when me and my family are using 2 ply and you and the rest of the trusting souls will be using kudzu leaves. After a few weeks of dragging your butt across the yard like a dog you're gonna be glad to pay me $10 roll. And it won't be the good stuff either. Thin single ply forty grit like you find in public restrooms.posted @ Tuesday, May 21, 2013 - 20:52
@E.J.: Just because they don't interest you dosen't mean they don't interest other people that would use the room after you are gone. How would you like to find out after your stay that there were things close by that you would like to have seen or done but you didn't know about them because some jerk used the fliers to start a fire with? Kinda puts you right in there with the PSOB don't it?posted @ Tuesday, May 21, 2013 - 20:01
@10-8 10-41: How could you tell from the mug shot he was a non-believer? He has his eyes closed so he may be praying that the church members don't get him.posted @ Tuesday, May 21, 2013 - 19:50
@melmarino: Uga is a good example of breeding gone wrong. I don't think he is much of a mascot. The last picture I saw he looked too fat to lick himself. And ain't good if you're a dog.posted @ Tuesday, May 21, 2013 - 19:43
To some sucess means having a job that gives you lots of free time to post useless comments to other people on Athens Talks all day and get into never ending arguments over things that don't mean squat. I am honored to know so many of you.posted @ Tuesday, May 21, 2013 - 19:37

@Politically Correct Name: To get back on track here is American Atheists a non profit group? Will their books be printed with thin paper so the campers can roll one if they need to?
Looks like you and EJ have a bright future. She's gonna follow you around like a little puppy now.

@ppensyl: True,but freedom of speech also comes to mind when I think about stupid people. Along with the right for stupid people to reproduce more stupid people.posted @ Monday, May 20, 2013 - 20:00

@melmarino: Thanks for asking that question. I wish all the comments about what went wrong would start with "I have never been in a situation like this".posted @ Monday, May 20, 2013 - 06:11

What about all the people that have to take prescription drugs so they can have a good life in America. I guess if a doctor says you need to take it everything is fine.
Recreational drugs are done for recreation. Like golf or fishing. I think I had rather trip on acid than play golf.
I promise not to call you names and I don't waste my time on your links. Happy now?posted @ Saturday, May 18, 2013 - 10:13

@Man_Of_The_Mountain: A background check is done when you buy a firearm from a dealer. Anyone can get a firearm if they want one from any number of sources.
One should never use something like this for a ploitical platform. Not the time or the place. Be glad that nobody got hurt and pray that she gets help.
BTW I heard about the young man in Oconee county. Too sad for words.
Were any liberal organizations the target of the IRS? If so which ones? Do liberal groups get a pass? Is it because conservative groups don't support the president?posted @ Friday, May 17, 2013 - 06:07
@Man_Of_The_Mountain: Were you born a jerk or is it something you had to work at? I don't think you would see anyone make any kind of stupid comment like your's about someone that took their own life. There are some things that you just don't do out of manners, respect and just plain common sense. Three things that you are clearly lacking.posted @ Friday, May 17, 2013 - 06:00
It's alright to admit that you made a mistake by voting for Obama. But you should have learned from your first mistake instead of repeating it.posted @ Friday, May 17, 2013 - 05:53

Rep. Regina Quick, R-Athens, was one of two local delegates to score less than an "A+" in the Chamber of Commerce's annual legislative score card. She and I played phone tag Monday when I was reporting the story and I wasn't able to get her comments in a timely fashion. Instead, she sent over this statement Wednesday morning and she did not mince her words. (Links and italicized portions are my own; otherwise, it's as she wrote it.) Dear Friends: read more
The committee opted Tuesday night to put off deciding on the ordinance until, at the earliest, its next meeting. Of note: The Athens-Clarke County attorney highlighted that the proposed times are, in essence, placeholders for the commission to change or keep as it pleases. Full text of the Use of Public Right-of-Ways ordinance draft is below. read more
