The children of MLK are concerned only about MONEY -- not his legacy. They are an embarrassment to his name. Everyone has conflict with them, not just the mayor.posted @ Thursday, November 28, 2013 - 09:40
Pitts' columns are the "pits"
He is nothing more than a racist himself and he has the nerve to blame others.
@helligater69: If they want to be compassionate they can volunteer at the several free health care opportunities already here in Athens, e.g., Mercy Clinic. Anyway, it's not for us to tell them what they ought to do to be compassionate.
And, many primary care doctors are overworked and underpaid relative to surgeons, specialists and others.posted @ Sunday, July 28, 2013 - 07:56
This is pie in the sky, bye and bye.
Why put additional burdens on the already-burdened health care system?
Why would busy, often underpaid (primary care) doctors want to now be responsible for people who can't even qualify for Medicaid. This is another step on the road towards already failed socialism-type economies of Europe.
I suspect Reno where this plan originated doesn't have 30% minorities on welfare. This plan is totally unrealistic. You want already -busy doctors to take on more patients. Then if their costs rise guess who gets to pay the difference - yes, responsible adults like you and me.
Plus, the rest of us will now experience further delays in getting to see the doctor. This plan is like so many other bleeding-heart plans -- put the majority out to accommodate the minority. I hope this network doesn't put pressure on the hospitals and doctors to go along with this.
Sounds like OneAthens resurrected.posted @ Saturday, July 27, 2013 - 09:52
Who can trust Big Pharma today to provide safe drugs? They spend more money on marketing/promotion than they do on innovation and research.posted @ Friday, July 26, 2013 - 10:19
We need stricter enforcement of these unwanted/illegal/suspicious phone inquiries. I get them all day too and just don't answer. But, elderly people grew up in an era when people could be trusted and thus get fleeced. There needs to be an easier way to block unwanted phone calls.posted @ Friday, July 26, 2013 - 10:17

If there is "hate" for Obama it has more to do with hating his approach to leadership. He is arrogant, sarcastic and devisive. He has led a NON-transparent approach to government. No other president has ever been this way. He blames others for his shortcomings.
Let's turn the question around: what is there to "like" about Obama? He has led the country down the path to socialism and has created more havoc in the economic system that most people/businesses today don't know where they stand and don't know what the future holds as we pass on to our children/grandchildren the results of selfish decision making.posted @ Thursday, March 7, 2013 - 08:32
"Demanding" access does not sound like a good strategy for "illegal aliens." They do have access to MOST of the colleges/universities in the State. It's not like they have been totally closed out. Plus, paying out of state tuition is reasonable when you really are from somewhere else.
Unfortunately, these youth have their PARENTS to blame not the state of GA. I'm not sympathetic with them "demanding" anything.
The Board of Regents policy is an appropriate one.posted @ Thursday, March 7, 2013 - 08:27
I support a strong degree of freedom with guns, but allowing them on a university campus just crosses the line in my mind. Angry students shooting professors; angry professors shooting students? Jealous students shooting others?posted @ Wednesday, March 6, 2013 - 19:57

The money might better be spent creating "safe rooms" in schools. Each classroom should have an impenetrable security door that the teacher can secure in the case of an outbreak. This might save lives when a gunman cannot easily get access to the students. To me this would be more valuable than one armed security officer in each school.posted @ Thursday, December 27, 2012 - 11:11
It's amazing to me that the media lock in on gun control and call the head of that association in on the carpet but won't do the same for violent computer games, TV and movies. These are the killing fields that help to set up violence towards others. Comprehensive means you look at every possible factor not just one factor such as gun control.posted @ Thursday, December 27, 2012 - 11:08
