US economy grew at 4 percent rate in spring

[quote][b]tgb[/b] - Thank goodness that the damage obama can do has been limited! [/quote]

one side calls it obstruction and the other calls it limiting damage.

Today's editorial cartoon

@Apox: I personally agree that this whole lawsuit thing is a joke and as likely to backfire on them as anything.... as for the 'obstructionist agenda', I still find that laughable. If the far right had control of the senate and presidency and the liberals had control of the house....it'd be the same exact thing happening except from the other side with the right crying about obstruction and libs happily 'obstructing'. The only time anything will will get done is when the center of both sides are in control and willing to deal on issues. At this moment, neither side is willing to give on any issue... no give and take equals nothing getting done.

Woman found badly beaten on Silver Comet Trail

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.

GSP troopers getting ready to enforce 'slowpoke' law

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.

...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.

Towery: Republicans could face serious challenges this year

[quote][b]nancy30683[/b] - Right now, the rich are getting richer, due to a Stock Market artificially propped up by the Feds. If they EVER see fit to stop pumping money into the economy,[/quote]

This. Does anyone else find it ironic that this admin has made the rich richer on such a huge scale.

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.

GSP troopers getting ready to enforce 'slowpoke' law

[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.

Execution offers evidence against lethal injection

Wish the video was available....reporters all saying that he was 'gasping' while most of the non reporters saying he was obviously snoring. Second hand info fail yet again.

With GOP runoff over, Perdue and Nunn face off

@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.

Obama opens Eastern Seaboard to oil exploration

guess he saw how much the fracking on private lands did for the economy and, since keystone was cockblocked, this made for a viable alternative.

Georgia coach Mark Richt's interesting choice for what his granddaughter will call him

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.

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.

Taking their business elsewhere: Best Buy latest to leave Clarke for Oconee

[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.

School supplies being collected for children in need in Athens

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.

Police: Men with guns face off in Valdosta store

[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?
[/quote]

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.

    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
