Maybe the president should clean up this pile of cluster fudge he just put on our doorsteps before unveiling another hair-brained scheme. I'm just sayin'...posted @ Friday, January 3, 2014 - 16:44

Not a good week for Mr. Favors. Wonder if the slapping is what caused the kidnapping?posted @ Friday, November 15, 2013 - 15:18
I'm sorry, but who's son is he again? This wonderfully vague article mentioned a famous civil rights leader in the last sentence, but never mentioned him by name. The headline was also remarkably vague. Someone trying to protect their agenda here?posted @ Tuesday, October 29, 2013 - 12:11

"There's a big difference in the connotation of someone holding a gun and someone holding a cigarette,"
Yet, how many people died as a result of cigarette smoking as opposed to dying as a result of gun violence? I would almost bet the house that the former is much greater than the latter.posted @ Wednesday, September 18, 2013 - 06:54
T.K. Hardy??? Where you been for the last 40 years?
Seriously though, I again would like to beg the question about the three strikes policy, because this guy would certainly be a good candidate for this program, now wouldn't he?posted @ Tuesday, September 17, 2013 - 13:01

So, not only does she have to live with the humiliation of being arrested, but she also has to deal with the humiliation of being labeled a man by the A B-H?posted @ Thursday, August 29, 2013 - 18:04
Whatever happened to that three strikes deal? Do we still do that? If so, then he would be a good candidate for that program.posted @ Thursday, August 29, 2013 - 11:00
@jeleclekat: nice comeback...it's obvious you have to copy what's written, as it seems impossible for you to come up with an original thought of your own.posted @ Thursday, August 15, 2013 - 13:26
@jeleclekat: The entrance road to both Rocky Branch Elementary School and North Oconee High School from Highway 53 is by the football field. Maybe not make geographical assumptions if you're not familiar with the area, eh?posted @ Thursday, August 15, 2013 - 12:41

Congratulations to a good man, and here's to hoping that Sheila Beckham is never around long enough to have anything unofficially named in her honor.posted @ Tuesday, August 6, 2013 - 21:00
Okay, this article could have been another 20 pages long, but if you include the phrase, "Rev. Al Sharpton" in the first few paragraphs of anything, you guarantee that 99.9995% of rational thinking people of all races will not take much of what follows afterward seriously.
If the black community were truly looking for a real discussion about this, they would tell Rev. Al Sharpton to stay out of it.
And if the black community of Athens is looking for something to seriously protest, they might want to read the article from last week about the unemployment rate of black Athenians. That seems like something Ms. Glenn should want to look into.posted @ Sunday, July 21, 2013 - 07:05
Apparently Hernandez told his new teammate Tebow to throw the gun in the woods, so police searched the pond.posted @ Wednesday, June 26, 2013 - 20:39
Qualyn's giving us rocks a bad name.

So, how are the comments of someone who is retiring at the end of his term exactly campaign fodder?
If you're generalizing that his comments are bad for Georgia republicans, then I would bet that you and Buckwheat above me here would just hate for comments made by democrat representative Hank "Guam is gonna tip over" Johnson to be used in the same manner...posted @ Thursday, June 6, 2013 - 06:08

The president needs to go too. Just two days ago, he said that the AD's job was safe because he helped land the contract that helped Rutgers join the Big Ten. Money over morals can't fly in this case.posted @ Friday, April 5, 2013 - 14:16
@bobby light: So, it's okay for you to be small-minded with regards to the Madison County bank story, but not okay for someone to be small-minded here?

Gene Weeks...the poster so nice, he has to comment thrice.posted @ Tuesday, February 26, 2013 - 20:37
Wouldn't it be nice if the author had mentioned that the President is the person responsible for the sequestration in the first place? He proposed it, and is now being allowed to complain about how it will be affecting us? Hypocrisy knows no bounds to these people!posted @ Tuesday, February 26, 2013 - 08:02
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.

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
