I got a somewhat related topic... do these new blue headlights at night half blind anyone else?? I'm not talking the expensive European cars, I'm talking the guy & girls cruising with cheap after market bulbs (although they charge an arm & a leg for those colored bulbs)
those pure white headlights are extremely bright but they don't seem to blur my vision as much as the dang blue tint.. the purple tints and the old yellowish sodium tint headlights aren't that bad....
I wonder if officers in Georgia could issue citations for the blue tint headlights?posted @ Sunday, November 10, 2013 - 14:58

[quote][b]swhitney[/b] - Apparently, very few of the posters on this site have ever been the victim of hate speech.
in reality.. hate speech on this Athens Banner website has been directed at me several times over the years....
if the kids want to protest.. good for them, gave the internet troll exactly what they wanted... Liberalism has been in control of UGA for decades.. no real need to protest...using the UGA police to investigate a school ethics policy violation is over kill by any definition of the situation..
the reality is the kids don't have enough to do if they had time to react to this.. we need young people helping at the charities in Athens and surrounding communities... instead of protesting.. I challenge this group of students to meet me and my family in Atlanta for Hosea Feed the Hungry coming up for Thanksgiving... Better yet, start their own version of the program in Athens.. we have over 500 homeless and thousands of poor families in need... instead of wasting their energy in protesting one individual... change our community for the better.. That is Dr. King's dreamposted @ Sunday, November 10, 2013 - 14:29

Where's the protest for this real threat to the African American Community and all the rest of us in Athens???
Black on Black crime is probably the largest cross section of crime in our community.. where's the protest to our Local & State Governments to due something about it???... and not just increase arrest rates and patrols, I'm talking really doing somethingposted @ Sunday, November 10, 2013 - 13:58

see.. here's where you had to be from an isolated hippy village in Utah or Colorado or you're a liar... there were peer reviewed articles on the climate is changing for a coming ice age for years,... then TIME magazine proudly announced it to the general public in the mid 1970s and stayed on that for 2 years... the only thing buzzing about gasoline was fears the lead content in the air could be crashing children's IQs in urban slums and areas lining the Smokey Mountains, this was brought on by the pesticide scares after the book "Silent Spring" (which is alarmist, but a good read anyhow)... research later found the lead from the exhaust gas mixture fell to the ground within a few feet from the road surface...

No... cause they put up with much crazier liberal oppression in the North for 70 years... they chose the South as opposed to taken it over seas because of the heavy import taxes on their products... some taxes and oversight do work.. why? because corporations don't give a damn about countries or employees...

No this is about the cops being a holes, by not just breaking up the "party" and sending everyone to their rooms. This kind of stuff does not need the legal system to be wasted on this type of situation.
When I was a kid and the cops broke up a party they just sent everyone home! No one went to jail. [/quote]
Why do Campus Cops need to send marijuana holders to jail.. hmm, has to do with the federal laws concerning financial aid.. passed more than a decade ago by the very leaders still in congress today...posted @ Saturday, November 2, 2013 - 18:04

Scott Berry puts himself on the line with his men and women in the field.. true leadership.. he did not drop by the scene of the arrest after the suspect was cuffed in a cruiser...
Get real man, the point is that if Berry was running an Athens Clarke County law enforcement agency the crime rate would be lower... I believe that is a likely statement..posted @ Saturday, November 2, 2013 - 17:33
[quote][b]Ridgerunner[/b] - How long has it been since Lumpy or any of his brass hats have taken part in an arrest? Just food for thought.
We have bureaucrats in the top law man positions, who put mediocre "yes" men and women in place to run operations, and the top brass often feel line officer duties are below their talents and level of P.O.S.T. certification... Chief Lumpy and Sheriff "Bling-Bling" gave up being "REAL" Law Enforcement Officers a long time ago.. they consider themselves accomplished administrators in the field of law enforcement...posted @ Saturday, November 2, 2013 - 17:22
The season is done.... for the first time in my marriage my wife said, "let's go to Atlanta, instead of watching the game"... Good job coach, you have demoralized the faithful with a decade of excuses... one play away means you were the loserposted @ Saturday, November 2, 2013 - 17:01
@Vote: there's your issue... if someone doesn't agree with you then they aren't rational caring individuals... funny but I already touch on that issue, the article didn't mention anyone giving money to save this landmark.. where was your check? where was your campaign?..
I give thousands of dollars personally and through my business to local charities... used to give money each year to Nuci's,... I don't believe the Nuci concept works like its sold, doubt they have the resources to prove what effect they have had.... there are certainly just as valid charities to give too, and I've seen what the benefits my money and volunteer time has done for the community through several others in Athens...
I'll bet I held my breath and choked back the stench while helping the homeless more times than you... until you've signed away your rights to enter Georgia prisons to teach violent inmates GED and technical classes in hopes to reduce recidivism.. don't talk to me about doing something for my community... just give money at cash registers and maybe get a tee-shirt for walking a short distanceposted @ Sunday, October 27, 2013 - 17:59
@Vote: you typed a post but didn't pull your head out of the sand... you have Dan's problem... a few posters on ABH is not a majority, not a formal group, and not a conspiracy... it is the liberals of Athens who didn't do a dang thing to save the steeple, it's the rich members of REM who have never cared to lend even their names to any effort either, let alone their money... ONE SINKING SONG written and that dang thing is paid for and the rest of the money could go to Nuci's... hmmm.. is that the angle here, if so well done!!!!!!!
Nuci's Space taken on the steeple is good business, something I would do if I were running a music themed business next to the steeple.... funny but the non-profit mission of Nuci's should have nothing to due with business, though.. which is a legitimate criticism.. no amount of liberal crying, name calling, and making up conspiracies will change that... no conflict to fire up liberals here... spend your own money and leave everyone else out of this...
case closed, the end....posted @ Sunday, October 27, 2013 - 16:56
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.
