Again, I don't think you are reading my sentence correctly. Let me break it down for you, "That ole rattlesnake does more good than harm," implies the snake is good for the environment. Thus,it brings more good to the world than the perceived harm it would cause by biting that ole fart on the tractor.

I was real enthusiastic when Grantham was hired. He seemed to bring a new vitality to what had been a hum-drum bend and often break defense. The first year was poor but they said we didn't have the right players for his system. Since then he's recruited what he wanted and the results have been so-so at best. His only redeeming aspect was picking a few exceptional individuals who made plays regardless of the system they were in. He's drastically over-paid and there doesn't seem to be that mysterious light at the end of the tunnel we so desperately need to see. Texas had a similar problem and Mack Brown did something about it!
except many folks in Texas --inc earl Campbell--think Mack Brown IS the problem
same situation hereposted @ Sunday, October 20, 2013 - 10:41
The same was said of Vince Dooley prior to 1980 to a certain degree.
football was different then..
.Richt has had 12 years to show us what he has. IMO we've seen the best he can give us...a great recruiter who has never been able to maximize the talent he recruits...a decent planner but mediocre game day coach and strategist...
he's hit his glass ceiling...time for new bloodposted @ Sunday, October 20, 2013 - 10:31
The bad defense not withstanding, half of a national championship team is in St. Mary's hospital. What person in their right mind expected the Dawgs to be undefeated at this juncture with all of their key components missing.....I mean really!
every year its a different set of excuses. imo Richt has hit his ceiling, what we see is the best we'll ever get out of him. I believe he is a good but limited coach and we need someone new.
perhaps we could retain him as recruiter--Richt is awesome at recruiting. just not at coaching.posted @ Sunday, October 20, 2013 - 09:42
Richt is right not to comment. We all know the calls were wrong, but the game was lost because Richt refuses to admit his approach is totally wrong.
Special teams? Not very special for years. How many games have they cost us over Richt’s tenure. There is something to be said for sticking to your game plan. There is also something to be said for being a bullheaded idiot that refuses to change in the harsh light of overwhelming evidence. I thought he might see the handwriting on the wall after special teams blunders cost a win against V Tech in the Sugar Bowl. Not so.
I thought he might see the light when an inferior SC team won on a fake punt that everyone knew was coming. Except for our enlightened Head Coach.
Our punter has a vertical leap of about 2 inches -- maybe practice catching a few high snaps just in case?
Richt needs to be given the ultimatum to hire a special teams coach or hit the exit. But that won't happen because McGarity is a weakling.
agreed. Mr Roboto hit his ceiling a while ago. time for new blood..posted @ Saturday, October 19, 2013 - 23:39
@cazziedawg: You and all the other whingers crying like little girls about firing coaches - unless you have played the game, unless you have had the pressure of coaching, shut up. One thinks you have been nothing but a bleacher cry baby. Thats what you sound like.
talk about whining...posted @ Saturday, October 19, 2013 - 20:04
hey Mark, how about commenting on your horrendous coaching job?posted @ Saturday, October 19, 2013 - 20:00

Richt--most overrated Ga coach ever?posted @ Saturday, October 19, 2013 - 19:46
Just read my username. Enough is enough. No more mid-season implosions. No more high expectations giving way to mediocrity. Today's team made me wonder if Ray Goff or Jim Donnan had taken over Richt's duties today.
agreedposted @ Saturday, October 19, 2013 - 19:44
is Richt the most overrated Ga coach ever?posted @ Saturday, October 19, 2013 - 17:41
I think they were distracted by the Debt Ceiling Crisis and the Federal Govt. Furloughs ... it was hard to focus when they were so worried about NSF funding for the science labs at UGA and a possible economic disaster.
The offensive line could not negotiate and Obama just won't . End of story.
takes a truly shallow and uninteresting mind to bring politics into thisposted @ Saturday, October 12, 2013 - 22:17
The old Murray showed up today and Georgia suffered for it. Continued miscues on defense plus Murray's turnovers spelled doom. Dawgs looked very poor. No more national championship talk, no more SEC championship talk. Outback Bowl here we come. Murray and Georgia coaching staff are losers.
this is what we have come to expect as long as Richt is coach. he has reached his glass ceiling, and the best we can expect from him is an occasional SEC East Championship separated by disappointing years like this one, where we played far below expectations
time for Richt to retireposted @ Saturday, October 12, 2013 - 22:15
I explored going to medical school 30* plus years ago and the biggest issue then was....wait for it...too few primary care physicians!
but hey maybe Obama reached back in time and created that shortage...you know, like he somehow reached back in time and created a birth certificate and newspaper announcement of his birth...posted @ Monday, October 7, 2013 - 15:41
too few primary care doctors has been a problem in the US for decades and is nothing new, despite the posters who hate Obama more than they value factsposted @ Monday, October 7, 2013 - 15:35
Obama reminded congress that the Federal Government is the country's largest employer......No kidding idiot!! That is the problem!
Shut it down. It is too big. And do your freakin homework. Congress gave obama a spending bill that would avert a shutdown and he said no----

the teabaggers in the GOP are throwing a tantrum, and dont care who suffers as a result.
they lost the last Presidential election, couldnt get the law changed through the Courts, and so are holding the country hostage till they get what they want.posted @ Tuesday, October 1, 2013 - 06:29

I'm not sure about the origin of Low Information Voter but I do understand how it applies. Some say that the term was introduced by left political writer, Popkin who served Clinton and Gore.... the term could apply to left or right but was used to characterize swing voters who needed a little extra propaganda to feed their low info.
I do know this.... if I were running for office, let's say high school president, I would be honorable and tell the truth even if it would knowingly ruin my chances of winning. If I wanted to win, I would promise my fellow students ANYTHING they wanted to hear. Most politicians have crossed that moral issue way back in their careers. They know the value of the big lie and the sound bite of emotional information designed to cue the low thinkers.... Now when it comes to winning the national election it is obvious and despicable to pander to the masses and promise them whatever they want to hear...... vague idea promises like; free health care, end all wars, end global warming - are all appeals to the lowest information voters. Then add a cherry on top like all of this is Israel's fault for not making peace in the Middle East, and winning the Presidency is assured.
So given that context, I'd say that the Democrats have been the most successful at manipulating the low information voters. Of course, this is a great insult to intelligent liberals who surely can not be low information, so they just go into total denial.
Last week it was Obama who said, "I will not compromise." We all heard that.
he compromised extensively in drafting the law, which was passed by both the House and Senate and ruled Consitutional by the SCOTUS...to suggest otherwise is simply disingenuous
to give into anti-democratic blackmail is not compromise, it is cowardice.posted @ Sunday, September 29, 2013 - 13:13
@As I See It:
No, just stating reality, which liberals have always been unable to grasp...
reality is the GOP ran against Obamacare in the last POTUS election and LOST ..now they're trying to achieve by tantrum what they could not achieve through democratic means...which simply shows they hate Obama more than they love democracyposted @ Sunday, September 29, 2013 - 13:10
oh look, tee wee is cutting and pasting from GOP press releases.
guess thats an improvement from teewee quoting web sites that believe Obama is trying to create civil war so he can send in the Army to create a Muslim dictatorshipposted @ Saturday, September 28, 2013 - 10:15
Again, our politicians will argue more guns vs. fewer guns while ignoring the very real problem of dealing with mental health and enforcing the gun laws we already have.
...and yet the GOP has gutted funding for mental health services for decades, creating a situation where the severely mentally ill are dumped on the streets and law enforcement is their de facto treatment provider...
perhaps if the GOP would consider redirecting some of the hand out money they give big oil companies we would have fewer crazy people walking the streetsposted @ Monday, September 23, 2013 - 10:20
so I guess Deals "conservative Christian GOP values" only apply to other people. no surprise thereposted @ Saturday, September 21, 2013 - 09:16
historically each Party has accepted legislation they dont like. its called Democracy.
for the GOP to shut down the ENTIRE US GOVERNMENT because they dont like legislation just shows they hate Obama more than they love America.
they pretend the last Presidential election never happened. the House GOP is populated by toddlers who are trying to ":hold their breath till it goes away". they have forgotten how to govern.posted @ Saturday, September 21, 2013 - 09:13
Lol. Shall we put it into context.
King James Version (KJV) 22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

Summary: Georgia's three-tier system stops one local bar owner from opening a distillery. Georgia?s three-tier system knocked down a cool project for downtown Athens recently. Booze wizard Damon Krebs, owner of a gaggle of watering holes around downtown including Allgood?s and Walkers (and Athens Bagel Company, for good measure), hoped to install a vodka distillery in part of his West Clayton Street real estate holdings (160 to 166 W. Clayton to be exact; the hopeful location was 160, former home of the Tillman Company, next to Flashback Games). read more
