Target asks customers to leave firearms at home

@TeeWee: note, it is a "request" not a policy. I'll pass on their request. If it becomes policy, I'll join you and shop elsewhere.

Good to hear from you Target, but I respectfully decline.

UGA's transfer policy lenient compared to its conference counterparts

The policy needs to be tightened up a bit. Transferring just because you don't start is BS. Work harder and earn your spot. Bunch of entitled babies want to quit when positions aren't handed to them. A transfer for lack of playing time should require sitting out a year or going to a lower division.

NCAA committee approves expanded meal allowance

All for providing meals to the walk-ons...but lets be real. These athletes aren't going to bed "starving." Entitled, enabled babies...have no idea what starving is!

UGA baseball player Sims suspended indefinitely after DUI arrest

As someone who knows this young man told me today...."I'm not surprised, he's never been known for his solid decision making."

4 UGA football players arrested, charged with theft by deception

[quote][b]bluemonkey[/b] - Players should not have taken advantage of the system and should be prosecuted, but if direct deposit had been required by our athletic department (or whoever is responsible for paying them), this never would have happened.

A thief is a thief is a thief. It hits me that this is a big part of the problem with our entitled and coddled society to begin with.... Maybe I'm reading too much into your post..if I am I apologize.

Federal health care sign-ups pass 1 million mark

[quote][b]seagra[/b] - A dear friend, who husband has type 1 diabetes is thrilled with her family's silver BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD plan. She hasn't had insurance for years because it has cost huge amounts for her husband's coverage. She told me yesterday even with the old coverage he was paying over $800 a month for his insurance and $600 a month just for his insulin. Now the whole family is insured for $460 a month with a $200 deductible on the drug piece. They have a reasonable deductible and complete preventable care including annual physicals, all immunizations including annual fiu shots with NO COPAY! YES, Obamacare is a great thing for people like my friend! (and all Americans)
Nancy Seagraves

ALL Americans??? Not so great for the more than 6 million people who have lost their insurance since this wealth redistribution policy went into effect.

Federal health care sign-ups pass 1 million mark

How many of that 1 million+ are part of the 6 million that lost their health coverage due to the lie of the decade? This "landmark" legislation is a landmark failure.

Obama focuses on a tough year's ups, not its downs

[quote][b]Normaltown yellow dog[/b] - I knew this artical would bring out the trolls who live to trash Obama. President Obama has been the best president in my lifetime. I just wish I could vote for him again. I am not kidding. Its the truth.

Funny....many Dems voted for him 3 or 4 times. Are you sure you didn't?

Jury acquits Georgia state lawmaker of all charges

Don't know if he knowingly did these things or not. I've been doing expense reports for 15 years and inaccuracy is not tolerated. Note to Don Balfour....get your crap together. If you want to be above reproach, then live it in everything you do. Being forgetful, absent minded, or disorganized is a poor excuse. If you're too disorganized to handle your expense reports then you're too disorganized to be representing us!

US Rep. Kingston says poor students should sweep floors for lunch

Such a misleading headline. It implies that only poor children get free lunch. I would rather see some enforcement of the free or reduced lunch program. No child who has a need for lunch should be denied. However, there are no checks when one applies for the program. A family who lived just outside our neighborhood with a tremendous home, a wrought iron fence around it, and numerous cars of high value....yep, free and reduced lunch for the kids. I knew of numerous other examples within our system.

No. 10 Michigan St. shocks No. 2 Ohio St.

Ohio State were the only ones "shocked" by this. When you regularly play a weak schedule you get exposed by good teams. Fortunately, we don't have to see it happen in the Natty game.

Richt doesn't comment on targeting calls, LB Jenkins says rule 'ruins the game'

Both targeting calls were terrible! That said, UGA should have NEVER been in the position to let those calls completely change the direction of the game. Bad coaching, bad offense, bad defense, bad special teams (AGAIN), and a complete lack of heart. What will we get...more excuses from Richt. make adjustments, losers make excuses. I, for one, am tired of the excuses!

    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
