This plan doesn't look Agenda 21 enough. I wonder if ICLEI is going to approve of this? Athens/Clarke better be careful! Selig's plan does not look 'green' or 'walkable' enough. The UGA Office of Sustainability is gonna be all over this. Uh-oh!posted @ Tuesday, May 7, 2013 - 16:47
You have to ask yourself 'Why are they practicing these drills in the first place?'
Are we expecting militia law in Athens like we saw in Boston after the staged bombings? I mean give me a break. These cops look more military to me. Are they practicing for knock and talks? Or are they practicing for when they come for our guns? These types of drills are pure psychological warfare to get the sheeple desensitized to martial law and seeing law enforcement/military on the streets. This is going on all over the country and as posse comitatus is being destroyed everyday. These people are not playing games.
The most important thing we as citizens have to wait for at this point is WHO the government is going to blame for the bombings. Al Cia-ada? A home grown right wing group? This is already shaping out to be a staged event once again.
It's obvious that law enforcement had previous knowledge of a threat evidenced by the amount of security at the start line and at the finish line. Multiple witnesses saw bomb sniffing dogs and heard announcements on the PA system that the heightened security was 'just a drill.' If this is the case, why didn't they cancel the race immediately and get everyone to safe place?
Once again, we must pay attention to WHO our lovely and trusting govt. is going to place the blame on and exploit. It would not surprise me for one second that this event will be the reason that TSA will now be required to be at all sporting events because surely, as Rahm Emmanuel stated..."“You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”posted @ Tuesday, April 16, 2013 - 08:42

Jeez.. I hope the federal govt. doesn't get wind of this. They'll send out to troops to protect the plants like they do in Afghanistan.

What the protesters were protesting is irrelevant. The university is a PUBLIC place, not private. These people were just exercising their first admendment rights peacefully. The cops had no right to dismantle their protest if they weren't creating trouble or violence. I'd sue the hell out of the university and I would ask where in their by-laws does it state that students can't protest at the Arch? Give me a break. Since when did RULE's become the law of the land and not LAW?
"According to the new rules"?????? REALLY? Just because a meathead cop tells you to quit protesting is merely a power grab. I'd ask the cop, SHOW ME THE LAW!posted @ Thursday, October 20, 2011 - 10:03

All of you sorry dumb cattle continue to be distracted with football. Makes me ill to my stomach. I honestly wish UGA would just implode. I'm ashamed that I graduated from there and gave them any of money for a worthless education.posted @ Thursday, July 7, 2011 - 15:02
UGA education = SCAM. Graduate with a worthless degree without any hard skills and about $50,000 + of debt. No thank you. Tuition goes to new construction and the biggest distraction of them all...the Bulldogs franchise. Ridiculous.posted @ Wednesday, June 15, 2011 - 10:00
Uhhh - UGA and universities these days are such a scam it makes me sick. When it comes to improving education and strengthening "infrastructure" UGA thinks that by spending BILLIONS on new construction is gonna do the job.
Tuition for me at UGA back in 1998 was $2200 per YEAR. Now its something like 8 grand a semester? What's happened here? All universities are doing are putting students in $75,000 in debt, making them slaves of student govt. loans that you can't (by law) default on if you had to and taking away 5+ years of earned income. All in the name of building new fancy mega structures like the Tate center. Totally useless endeavors.
My solution to the problem of losing staff is to first get rid of the crappy faculty and the goons that are running UGA. Quit spending billions on new facilities, lower the out of control tuition, stop requiring students to buy brand new $200 books, and actually teach the student body real world skills instead of BS theories and philosophies.
This is why UGA is failing. Instead of teaching AG students REAL FARMING, they are going to sell 600 acres of farm land and teach it out of $200 text books. Blah...give me a break.posted @ Saturday, May 28, 2011 - 09:04
Oh man I go again...another crazy conspiracy theory rant. Where to start.
Barry Soetoro, Bush, Clinton were all hand picked by offshore bankers and other international organizations such as the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the UN, the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA),Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations and the Bilderberg Group. Most of the Presidents are merely puppets or front men to push the globalist agenda of a global government and having a global currency or a "New World Order." Democrats and Republicans are the same way. Just puppets. The two parties exist only to distract the American people from the real agenda of having a global govt. that is slowly being implemented under our noses. At this point in the game, government hardly exists. The main players who are calling the shots and running the so called govt. are a small group of elitists that include David Rockefeller, Zbigniew Brzezinski, George Soros, Henry Kissinger, the Rothschilds, etc. This is why Kennedy got killed. He was anti-globalist.
The writing is so clearly written on the wall it's impossible to ignore. Barry completely bypassing Congress to start an illegal "humanitarian" war in Libya using Al CIAda operatives that the mainstream media is calling "rebels." Is it a surprise that Barry went to the UN instead of Congress before attacking Libya? Not at all. Barry of course is the Chairman of the UN Security Council. Duh. How far is the US military industrial complex gonna go? What other countries are we going to put into debt by forcing leaders out and destabilizing govts? Funny that we don't hear anything more about Egypt or Mubarek. All attention is now on Libya which clearly represented no direct threat to the US. The only reason we are over there is because back in 2009, Ghadaffi had plans to nationalize the countries oil and give it back to the people. It’s about oil – and who owns it. Nothing else. The US is there with their dirty hands trying to take control of Libya's largest natural resource. It's absolutely disgusting. Meanwhile, we MUST support our troops or we are un-American. No one forced anyone to sign up for the military to fight the US's private illegal wars. Give me a break. These pour brainwashed souls are dying overseas fighting for oil.
One day you will actually wake up from your March Madness, NFL, Dancing with Stars, Facebook stupor. It really makes me laugh and shake my head when people argue over the meaningless political ideals of McCain, Palin, Barry, Biden, Bush, and other talking head goons. These people are nothing but actors who work for the establishment. Their power pales in comparison to the ones that are giving them orders.
Its hard to even fathom how much this country and others around the world are in such disarray, so deep in a bottomless pit, so corrupt. I have faith you'll wake up one day and realize how deep the rabbit hole goes. Just have the guts and look beyond Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, Sean Hannity and O'Reilly. The job of these people is spread the propaganda. Period. Okay...time to stop. I'm done trying to convince how brainwashed you are. Do your own research. I'm tired.posted @ Tuesday, April 5, 2011 - 21:40

Like I said before...its absolutely ridiculous and sick that you can marry your own cousin in Georgia but not buy a six pack on Sunday. Finally there were some reps with common sense in govt. who voted "yes." Someone earlier said separation of church and state. YES. Not being able to buy alcohol on Sunday is forcing a belief on someone else with no justification. This is a FREE MARKET ladies and gentlemen. If you have the freedom to practice your religion on any day of the week then people should be able to buy on any day of the week. End of story. It's just like me saying, 'You can't praise the Lord on Saturday because the Bulldogs are playing'. Makes no sense what-so-ever. Bottom line is, if you don't want to buy on Sundays don't buy. Don't force your beliefs on someone preventing them from doing what they want to do especially if it's not harming anyone. Freedom and liberty folks. FREEDOM and LIBERTY.posted @ Wednesday, March 16, 2011 - 19:08
It really surprises me that people still think there is a difference between Republicans, Democrats, Tea Party, etc. Behind closed doors, they are on the same side...period. All political parties are merely fronts for the corporatocracy. Follow the money. Is it a surprise that BP is one of Obama's biggest campaign contributors? C'mon people, wake up! How long are you going to listen to these political parties argue over this, that and the other. Obama, hand picked. Bush, hand picked. Politicians are put in office by the corporations to perpetuate their profit agendas but they'll spin it to you promising change.
They are the DISTRACTION to keep people away from the real truth. It is all about money and profit, nothing else. Do you really think that these elitists and politicians give a rats a#$ about people or humanity? We are sheep and scum in their eyes.
Really...I can't blame people that still think there is a difference between political parties. They just haven't woken up yet to the nightmare. Have some courage and do research and you will soon see how deep the corruption is. Why don't you start by watching the documentary Inside Job coming out next week.posted @ Friday, March 4, 2011 - 12:59

Hypocritebuster -- I commend you for providing some logic on this discussion, although you are "digging" way too deep then necessary. Is it really a surprise to you that the GOVT is allocating so much money to such a menial task? And that the "press" labels this story as Stimulus funds will help Athens grow?" is a classic GOVT tactic.
How many GOVT workers does it take to plant a tree? Easy...five. One, maybe two to dig a hole and the rest to stand around and watch. I literally saw 20+ state workers today build a 100 ft sidewalk on the Eastside. No kidding.
Please do not analyze this tree planting to much my friend. You are truly missing a much larger scheme and plan to make everyone poor, reliant and subservient to state and federal govts. At least you are adding to the cause of waking people up from their X-box, Wal-Mart shopping stupor.

Yeah...the school. You're exactly right. Not the city. Every moron that pays for a severely overpriced UGA football game ticket is paying for new construction and other frivolous crap on the UGA campus. If you haven't heard, UGA employees along with other Ga state employees had 12 furlough days this year. That's interesting considering the new Tate monstrosity cost over $800 million dollars. Uhhh...UGA is such a scam.

[quote][b]fightback2[/b] - @Truthsayer: The stimulus worked but it was not large enough because of your ilk; healthcare will work in spite of your ilk; it eliminates the donut hole for seniors, allows kids to stay in their parents insurance plan if they are in college until age 26; mammograms will be covered; I have more but knowing you, you are not going to read it or believe it; go back to your fox cocoon. I wish you were a truthsayer.
Mmmm...How has the stimulus worked for you? The stimulus money went to the unions for votes that's it. I can't wait to see the look on your face when you get your paycheck the second week of 2011...if you're even working (sounds like you're not, AKA moocher)
Health care did nothing to fill the donut hole. What in the hell is $250 going to for someone who's medication is $750 a month? NOTHING. The govt. thought that by mailing a $250 check to seniors was going to help the situation. Hilarious. They did that to shut em up. This is a ONE time check homeboy. Not every month.
Heath care allows allows 26 year old KIDS to stay on their parents plans so they can continue to smoke weed and sit on their couches and do nothing. Pathetic. What MORE do you have? Premiums have sky rocketed if you haven't checked lately...you must be on your parents plan still. Preventive care is covered 100% FOR NOW. Won't be long I can guarantee you.
There is a reason why health insurance companies no longer issue child only policies for kids under 19. Its too expensive for health insurance companies to sustain. These "evil" companies barely survive off their 3% profit margins. The brilliant people in the White House failed to consult real executives about this stuff and it ended up backfiring on them. Instead they relied on Harvard professors to give them advice on private enterprise. Oooops. Remember...no more than 10% of Obama's staff has any experience with private enterprise (aka real jobs).
So...Fightback2, it is you that is in your fox cocoon. You're obviously uneducated and probably didn't get passed the 7th grade. Unfortunately, you and your other liberal bedwetters are exactly what is fueling the problems that this country is having right now.

As a huge Backstreet Boys fan, I was little perplexed on reading Nick Carter?s book. It?s not like reading a book about Elvis Presley or The Beatles. I didn?t live through those moments. I didn?t see them in person.
