[quote][b]TheBetterGeneration[/b] - @scarborj: So you're uncomfortable with black people being black around you, just like how you are uncomfortable with gay people being gay around you?
[/quote]

Did I say uncomfortable??? No, I didn't. I am referring to the culture & the lifestyles of each!

[quote][b]Kwijibo Junior[/b] - @swimdawg68: There's not much difference between being born black and being born gay. Either way, some unenlightened folks will think less of you because of something over which you have no choice. [/quote]

You are right, there is no difference at all. However, there is a difference in whether or not it is pushed upon those people who are not like them nor do not wish to have their way of life constantly pushed at them to be accepted. Seems the liberals want it only their way and be damned with how others feel.

Good luck! So much has been tried and failed in our school system until you wonder if anything will work which goes back to the old adage, "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink." Until parents and young people decide they want to be responsible, involved, and learn, I pity those who are trying to help them get an education. Hate to be a pessimist, but that's just the way it is now in ACC. Just saying....

While I commend any humanitarian help Americans want to give in the Middle East, civilian Americans need to keep their asses at home if they don't want to get captured, tortured, or killed. They all hate us. Just saying....

This is another instance where you give someone an inch and they take a mile!

Remember when Iraq would not allow inspectors checking for weapons of mass destruction into their country for a long period of time??? They took that opportunity to move those weapons to Syria, so naturally, no weapons were found once the inspectors were allowed into the country again. Deja Vu, anyone?

Sounds like Iran is doing the same thing here...stalling for more time to get their nuclear weapon on line and to hell with all other countries. Depending on the UN is a joke! Don't know why we are even a part of it. Do they ever inspect what is happening with the nuclear program at all?? It's not hard to see that not only Israel has cause to be concerned, but all other countries should be very afraid. Just saying.....

[quote][b]swimdawg68[/b] - It's also hard to clap when the words coming out of Obama's mouth are nothing more than political BS.

Especially when it is the SOS he's been preaching for almost 6 years now. He just pulled a stump speech from one of his campaigns. Stare

Awww, too bad the President & First Lady will miss seeing the Taj Mahal! NOT!

The elderly are not the only ones who watch Fox News and other news. I would wager many younger Americans watch it so that they can be informed of the FACTS of all that is happening in the world today and from a perspective that is fair and balanced. Certainly not from the "do as I say, NOT do as I do," mantra!

Hate to hear about more and more animals being put out on the streets and roads to fair for themselves.To be honest, I don't know which is being treated the worst these days, animals or the elderly. Probably neck and neck at this point.

Why is this news???? The media could not get Zimmerman for Treyvon, so they keep dogging him on these other arrests??? Find something newsworthy like thugs and lawbreakers everywhere and nothing being done about it!
The police do their jobs, lock them up, then they're put on probation and do it again....just a revolving door.

@Georgia Boy:

Obama is not guilt-free. He is the one who insists that al Queda is on the run and has been pretty much dismantled. He is in denial that the war on terror is and probably will never be over as long as the radicals continue to exist and hate the western world. We need to root out and crush ISIS, al Queda, and any other radicals who seek to destroy our freedom!

And, furthermore, the so-called peaceful Muslims who call America home, need to step forward and denounce these radicals and their acts of terror thereby joining not only their home, but in all nations in the fight against them!

Again, common sense comes to mind here....like TeeWee stated, we learn at an early age to look both ways when crossing a street whether at a crosswalk or not! Just saying....

All this would be solved if there were no crosswalk there and pedestrians would use the crosswalk at the redlight on the corner of Barber and Prince to cross Prince. What's a few steps when it comes to your safety. And, truth be known, most of us need those extra steps...exercise is good for you! Just saying....

This news is good for the heart as it had seemed that more and more youth were moving away from our Christian values by ceasing to attend Sunday School and Church on a daily basis. This type of event is so welcomed!

Declare Marshall Law and lock all of them up until they can learn to respect law enforcement. They can say they are harassed all they want to, but the facts are they usually commit most of the crime everywhere...what do they expect??? Police officers to buy them ice cream?

@Mark Farmer: Mr. Farmer still neglects to say how much, if any, extreme government regulations and fines will help this situation at this point. Nada! These actions will only keep our economy at a slow crawl, if not at a standstill, while the earth continues to remain the same.

There should not be any protests at all. I know it's a right of all not to agree with everything these days, but this has gone over and above what one thinks. This is a safety issue for a group of people who are only doing their jobs on a daily basis. There is a procedure one can go through if they have a problem with the way an officer or officers are doing their jobs....they need to use it and stop all the rioting, looting, and downright thuggery! Two law enforcement officers are gone who left behind wives and children and who were only doing their jobs to the best of their ability. The Governor should declare Marshall Law and put a stop to this farce!!! Lock up anyone who doesn't comply!

In other words, use COMMON SENSE folks...although I know there's not a lot of that to go around these days! Merry Christmas! Santa

The media should leave the man alone. I am a woman and have no empathy for these women for their ALLEGED abuse. If they had any respect for themselves, they would have reported this abuse at the time it happened. This is all too little, too late and is just being used by the media to ruin this man and his career. And, I would wager because of his views on racism in the world today.

I think this situation is playing out just like Obama plans so that he, along with his Task Force, can do away with local law enforcement and replace it with a National Police Force under the federal government with everything else they want to control.

This gentleman graduated the year I was born and was a fellow Athens High School Trojan. So happy you were found, are home, and receiving the recognition you deserve. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice for our freedom! God Bless! Crying

    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
