[quote][b]Minion[/b] - To Congress and I dare say the Executive Branch... the Chief's opinion and the Mayor's means more than the citizens of ACC[/quote]
Well.. seeing as how I voted for our current mayor, I'd say my opinion means a lot more than they think. As well as everyone else who did. As for Lumpkin, people like him should be elected, not appointed. We should be allowed to hold their jobs in our collective hands.posted @ Sunday, March 24, 2013 - 06:02

Oh you are such a great example of maturity, RWE! Your righteous indignation is almost laughable! No sense of humor today?
Nope. I don't make classless jokes about someone being rent in two by a large beast. Wheres your manners today? I'm a heck of a lot more mature than some of you liberals claim to be. In fact most of those self professed champions of civility who felt it necessary to be the forum police have been banned.
Just grow up. You should be embarrassed at the fact that you are being schooled in basic manners from someone almost half your age. You want Paul Broun to be eaten by a lion? Really? I expect that out of a 10 year old, not you.posted @ Sunday, March 24, 2013 - 05:35

THE SENATE up until this morning, had FIVE YEARS to prevent this.

Grow up. I mean you are free to have your disagreements with his stances, but this is immature. You don't hear me saying "I wished Obama and Air Force One had crashed into the Atlantic on its way his way to Israel" do you?

[quote][b]maxcat07[/b] - @nationalchamp1988: Was it a "hit piece" when the conservative National Review printed it originally?
No. But this newspaper fully intended it to be, given its painfully apparent animus towards Paul Broun.posted @ Saturday, March 23, 2013 - 16:47

Dude. Not cool. I don't care how much you dislike him, this was way out of line. You have zero idea about what he does in his bedroom. What was it you liberals said when it came to abortion and gay marriage? "Stay out of my bedroom"?
That's the most classless thing I've ever seen you post on here.

I read just about every political article that gets published on this website. Don't you think I would notice something like that? The lie is saying his political affiliation never got mentioned.
"Congressman Broun, R-Athens, has struggled with alcohol in the past. He has openly discussed his drinking problems, but says they ended in the 1980s when he became a born-again Christian." Please. Try paying attention.posted @ Friday, March 22, 2013 - 21:26

This newspaper has an unhealthy obsession with Paul Broun. To say that it doesn't mention him is a lie, or a flat out lack of observation on your part.posted @ Friday, March 22, 2013 - 17:40
Obama once confessed in his autobiography that he ate dog. Is this newspaper so desperate to vilify Paul Broun that it would publish something as trivial as this?
If Broun wins a Senate seat, watch articles like this become a weekly, if not daily occurrence. In this instance, the ABH is full of crap and they know itposted @ Friday, March 22, 2013 - 17:29

So you can't for just one day consider the fact that NBC might be using the plights of all of those boys Sandusky raped for ratings? They are desperate. And this is despicable. Jerry Sandusky should not see the outside world for the rest of his life. The more media exposure he gets, the more legitimized he feels. Screw freedom of the press, this is ridiculous.

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
