Romney accepts apology from MSNBC host

@Dr Benway: that's one of the issues I have with liberals... the ills of the left exist independent of any shortfalls on the right... from the tactical standpoint its good to remember that not every friend of an enemy is your enemy...

If you really want the answers to the questions you posted then continue reading my post... the level of integrity in the broadcast media profession as a whole dropped when the financial forecast began measuring the impact of the internet... news reports turned into freshman term papers with the same nonacademic and unprofessional sources

Two things to remember if you think this Duck Dynasty thing is about anything except bigotry

@E.J.: government, throughout the history of mankind, have never been formed to "level a playing field" in any century... governments were formed to protect life & assets and not always in that order...

Romney accepts apology from MSNBC host

@Tewise: The host prides herself on being the definition of tolerance for all who do not share her ideology to become.. as such she invites others to do her dirty work throughout the shows segments...

It was not a live show, Harris-Perry sets the agenda on the segments, she had editorial approval during taping and before it aired.... both should have said they were sorry... an orphan from Africa may be having the chance of a lifetime adopted into the Romney family and the so-called leaders of diversity make fun of and sound bitter about a future "Uncle Tom"....

Athens police ask public's help in identifying fraud suspect

[quote][b]thelastresort[/b] - seems to me she would have to know the woman's account number also. that is what the bank always ask for. what happened here?
[/quote]

if the checkbook or debt card was taken when the id was stolen as in saying both were in a purse.. but the details are notoriously lacking.. I know Joe, you are just telling us what the report says.... of course stealing something in the parking lot of PSB rings of insider help... the place is too remote for random targeting.

Police identify Athens man who abandoned children on New Year's Eve

how does one have a 1 year old and 6 month old twins???? The alleged one year boy is walking and can reach and turn a door knob????

the welfare checks, public housing, food stamps, and peach care for three children doesn't cover the bills? I know, that seems harsh..... I should be shocked and dismayed for the kids and mother... as Jay Z reminds us it's a hard-knock life lady, maybe this is that turning point screaming at you to change your life...

Athens police arrest flasher wearing rainbow thong

I'd like to say congratulations to which ever... DIP-STICK prosecutor.... that plead down holding a knife to a victim's throat during an armed robbery to "sudden snatch" while dropping the aggravated assault...

you got him 5 years away with all those charges when you should have went for MAX... the progression from property offenses to a violent offense against a person in a relatively short amount of time was your clue Sherlock.. now that he's back in 4 years ( good time for early release) he has progress to sexual deviance to random strangers... I hope Parole puts him back for at least 80% of his original sentence

Mobile apps useful learning tools, within limits

This reminds me of the Super Speak &Spell and Super Speak & Maths gadgets I bought my kids in the early 1990s... the sound was a little annoying, but I did notice my kids speed in answering the machine improve... got better marks in those early years on spelling than I did... Neither of my kids can match me in mathematics, though... which I say good for them.. less noise in the brain.

Side note... if the apps require data use to play.. I bet the service providers are making a killing off parents with young kids...

Athens police release still photos of armed robbery suspects

the different color gloves is a good clue... the blue glove are nitrile gloves and the light yellow are latex... its pretty uncommon for folks to buy both kinds for home use so these numb nuts probably took them from work or had their ladies do it for them... common use for these "exam" gloves are medical service and facility, laboratories either professional or college, janitorial services, and some food preparation... they would most certainly be found in the chicken processing industry (along with many probationers and convicts).... it sounds like a needle in a hay stack clue, but a good criminal investigator knows how to work that into the search... these two planned well using gloves and layers of clothes that they could quickly change and get ride of... but the clothes look kinda stylish, so they may not have been obtained specially for the robbery and someone may recognize the guys

Remarks about dog result in fight

If the severity of the offense was minor enough that no one was arrested at the scene... then the names and addresses should have been left out of this blotter post... including the snipe about one person's employment was kinda petty for the staff writer, did ya think that might shame the person into not asserting their rights to take out a warrant for simple battery because they fear discipline at work for a totally personal matter.. even more petty for folks complaining of a privileged class.... perspective folks

Our President, Barack H. Obama!! Hooah!!!

Let's see... I didn't get to keep my personal healthcare program or the one for my employees which my business used to pay 80% of their plan (having my folks at work means profit)... now I shift 80% to them to pay (cheaper to hire temp workers if folks or their families are sick)..

job numbers falsified by government tampering with the meaning of word unemployed (this one isn't Barrack's felt.. it started during Clinton's years)

stock market inflated and waiting for the largest crash in history (that was from a comment of a CNBC expert, Barrack isn't running this policy and doesn't have the knowledge to challenge his Fed leaders)

claims of deficit reduction after creating the largest deficit spending in the history of the world left alone the history of our nation (just more progressive twisting of reality and spin for the stupid folks not paying attention)

the continued lies and finger pointing over the death of a border agent, IRS, EPA, Benghazi, violations of sunshine laws, Affordable Care Act exemption to political donors, and the failure of the healthcare exchange computer system......

OH, OH, OH.. and Obama tried to extend the IRAQ WAR past the official deadline signed between the BUSH administration and the Iraq government... sent Joe Biden to do it but the Iraq government told him to get the hell out

facts are not the strong point of the progressive party...

Nearly 30 citations issued at Athens crosswalk

so... with the increased patrols to deter the rash of muggings and armed robbery on the other side of downtown and the reports in the blotter of women being beaten all over the county and the usual drug involved home invasions and beatings ramping up for the holidays...

the GRITS customers, a privileged homogenous group within our community's melting pot, get a special enforcement operation on crosswalk violations, one might say because the sun now sets when the progressives are walking across the street for dinner...

‘Inbred idiot’ sign upsets Athens resident

Note to headline writer... two out of three notes are death threats, you should have focused on those instead of the sophomoric "inbred upsets resident"..

I totally disagree with the officer on this one... you did nothing about a man who's moved from bullying his female neighbor to now attempting to terrorize her with death threats.... you've proven to the man that the police will do nothing about his behavior so now it will escalate to some form of property damage or violent encounter....

Confessions of an ex-retailer...

A posting about retailers using the holiday that doesn't mention.... hint, hint... the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade.... I guess its a generation thing, the kids don't see that as advertising anymore....

what a bunch of whiners, America has become... retail pays time and a half for working on a national holiday.. America allowed retailers to trample all over the religious aspect of the Thanksgiving holiday... so, live with the problem or find a better job that respects you... retail workers are tools, you can thank Wall St for that

you've been had on that bill of goods, I understand why you think that, but you wouldn't have drawn a neg if you correctly identified what type of Christian creationism mirrors.. that's the evangelical movement.... ...

Evolution debate again engulfs Texas board

[quote][b]matt1141a[/b] - just another theory like evolution. [/quote]

Hell's bells it is... creationism is not a scientific theory.. it is a dream, one which Christ might ask why his followers are judging people and not feeding them... you are right when you said creationism is not Christianity...

you're laying ash and trash.... Darwin's theory of evolution is the one theory taught to grade school children about natural selection... your last two sentences shows you really don't understand the history of science nor the terminology... like a rookie on the mic not knowing the codes

Columbus judge refuses to quit 'Stocking Strangler' case

The prosecution has a case of sour grapes on this one because the GBI -DNA lab was caught with their pants down.... come on, who in that jurisdiction working for the courts would not have read that book about the most famous case in a century for that area.. even I have read the book...

the GA Supreme Court ordered the hearing over DNA, not the other elements of the case... it would be an easy appeal to win for the state if the judge wrote a finding that even hinted, quaked, or smelled like Rose's theories of the case..... for our state's continued legitimacy in it's capital punishment the DNA should be tested.... if the GBI lab hadn't screwed up the first re-test with our modern technology this wouldn't be necessary

UGA Mythmaking, Jim Thompson Edition!

if you sit back and really think about what Jim said.... he just didn't stop at laying out an emotional plea in support of those who were hurt by the faceboob posting

..he implied every white person in Athens Clarke County who doesn't totally agree with his position or show up at the protest is racist...

why, because murderers 50 years ago attacked a man for the color of his skin and today one individual filled with hate posts nasty comments on the internet...

The Editor's Desk: UGA student group's protest call justified

"Sorry, but that is neither explanation nor excuse in a town barely half a lifetime removed from the lynching of a black man"...

Where does the Athens Banner Herald have the moral authority to make such a pronouncement??? You have accused tens of thousands of citizens in Athens Clarke County of racism because of an internet post by one individual... You, Sir have NO MORAL AUTHORITY.. guess you should ban me for having a valid opinion....

You can deny reality all you want,.. and I'm sure if any evidence is uncovered that totally refutes your fact-less opinions dressed as faux moral outrage.... you and the rest of the Athens Banner Herald will bury it.... but thanks for the piece, it will be useful

    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
