while Im all for ccw and personally practice ccw..... in this case it probably wouldnt have helped... Just an assumption, but most solo runners are morons. They toss on the earphones crank up the music and tune the world out running while being totally oblivious to their surroundings. I dont care if youre male/female/black/white/red/martian, you have to pay attention to whats going on around you or evil will get the drop on you.posted @ Thursday, July 31, 2014 - 09:44

I personally dont care if they pass out tickets for it and every ticket gets turned over in court.... just keep wasting their time pulling them over and then waste time in court..... Theyll get the message at some point.posted @ Sunday, July 27, 2014 - 19:56
...now if we could just horse whip the ppl that go 45 on a 1 lane road and speed up to 65 when they get to a passing zone, we will be set.posted @ Sunday, July 27, 2014 - 03:49

This. Does anyone else find it ironic that this admin has made the rich richer on such a huge scale.posted @ Saturday, July 26, 2014 - 12:45
I think theyre making a mistake suing the president in this case. While he has overreached the office and is probably at fault, why do stuff like this when he is doing a great job burying himself.posted @ Saturday, July 26, 2014 - 12:38
[quote][b]cyou299[/b] - @counter spin: thanks, but not sure I like the options...risk a $100 speeding ticket, or slow to 45 to let a speeder pass me. Nah, they can just wait. [/quote]
if youre going the speed limit and ppl are in the slow lane going 45....youll be in the act of passing and the law wont affect you.....
This law is only needed due to ppl not having the common courtesy/sense to get over and let ppl by when theyre sunday driving in the fast lane.posted @ Saturday, July 26, 2014 - 12:34

@TeeWee: I just find it ironic when one side whines about obstructionism when either side would do the same exact thing when holding the minority side.posted @ Wednesday, July 23, 2014 - 13:44

This.... we're back to repeating something enough that it becomes truth. Kinda like saying Iraq military is fully ready and able to take over their nations security..... repeating something over and over doesnt make it truth and reality will come bite that ass at some point.posted @ Tuesday, July 15, 2014 - 15:41
why is this hard? take away the gas tax and implement a usage tax for anyone that uses a highway...cars/bikes/trucks/scooters etc. Voila problem solved.posted @ Tuesday, July 15, 2014 - 15:37
[quote][b]proftom[/b] - I agree that navigating the Atlanta Highway area around the former Best Buy is a mess if you are trying to turn left on there. If the state paid for Oconee to put in that road, which I am sure cost a good bit, surely they could consider whatever comes out of the planning for around Georgia Square Mall.[/quote]
it wouldnt even have cost much. Just cut an exit to the loop around the mall and voila poof....easy access to the old best buy.posted @ Saturday, July 12, 2014 - 14:06

ahh school supplies... the memories. School supplies are what started me on the path to being a conservative. Hilsman middle school 7th grade (patty hilsman back then)... I worked my butt off hauling hay all summer and bought my own school supplies with my trapper keeper notebook, pencils, pens, erasers, paper etc.... first day of school the teacher took everyones school supplies from them and then passed it back out 'equally' back to the class so no one had more than any other.... I was one [filtered word] off mofo.posted @ Monday, July 7, 2014 - 15:53
[quote][b]dahreese[/b] - @TMKvetch - Please tell me that this post was a joke and that you are aware that open carry has always been generally legal (although kind of a dick move).
This from Georgiacarry.org
Q: Can I carry a handgun openly, without concealing it?
A: No! Georgia is one of the minority of states that requires a Georgia Weapons License to carry a handgun openly."
By-the-way; which of us is wrong on your "open carry" statement?
youre quoting from the "I dont have a carry license " section. If you have a ccw, you can open or conceal carry. Not sure if that is where the confusion is coming from or not.posted @ Saturday, July 5, 2014 - 18:45

The Democrats had to rely on the misinformation given to them by the dys-administration of Bush/Cheney. History has shown that the NeoCon warmongrels LIED THROUGH THEIR TEETH to to "manufacture consent" of the American People in their run up to war.
Check your facts - those mendacious, discredited, lyin' war profiteers are lyin' AGAIN.

Summary: Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
