Deal, Carter duel over education at Atlanta forum

I think it is the "I wish I could reach over there right now and choke the life out of you" scowl, with a heavy dose of Stinkeye.

Not sure what you mean. Prejudice toward what??? Lying war criminals? You would be correct. Prejudice toward white people? Incorrect (I'm white).

@Jaki: My reference was, of course, how the evil one recently blamed Obama for the unrest and terrorist activity in Iraq (what a joke). Too bad y'all missed that.

Drum set stolen in Athens

[quote][b]The Oracle of the Athens Banner Herald[/b] -

Sounds to me like the thief may beat the rap. Too bad the landlord didn't take the opportunity to snare the thief. All this petty thievery is becoming too much the cymbal for our community. I hope the victim gets the chance to stick it to the thief. I'll bet if he asks around the Iron Triangle, he can find out who the thief is. That area is a known bass for drugs dealing and fenced goods.

[/quote] I understand the suspect's street name is TomTom. They probably need to be listening out for a cowbell where there are no cows.

Small South Carolina town rallies for fired gay police chief

Iran Contra. Guns for hostages. Guns for drugs. Too bad actual facts have to taint the rights historical revisionism of their beloved criminal Ronald Reagan and his partner in crime VP Bush.. Never noticed the over abundance of cocaine that flooded our streets during his reign? The record number of cocaine addicts? Ronnie couldn't get funding through Congress, so he got it any way he could. With the help of convicted criminal Oliver North, poster boy for Faux "News", and repeatedly referred to by Sean Hannity as "a great American" (that taints every great American), and "one of my closest and dearest friends in the whole world." He was pardoned by Bush, along with five others about to stand trial, including Casper Weinberger. The prosecutor, Lawrence Walsh screamed of a coverup. Mr. Walsh bitterly condemned the President's action, charging that 'the Iran-contra cover-up, which has continued for more than six years, has now been completed.' Also forgotten is Reagan’s own embarrassing propensity to just make things up. Reagan was a dunce and a fabricator. One of his most famous assertions was, “Trees cause more pollution than automobiles do.”

George "No new taxes, ex Director of the CIA" Bush also led us into the first Gulf war with the same Hooligans his son imposed on us years later. The first Gulf War was sold on a mountain of war propaganda. It took a campaign worthy of George Orwell to convince Americans that our ally Saddam Hussein — whom the US had aided in his war with Iran as late as 1988 (cue the famous photo of Saddam and "Rummy" shaking hands) had become an irrational monster by 1990. Citing top-secret satellite images, Pentagon officials estimated in mid-September of 1990 that up to 250,000 Iraqi troops and 1,500 tanks stood on the border of Saudi Arabia, threatening the key US oil supplier. Yet, Jean Heller of the St. Petersburg Times wasn’t satisfied taking the administration’s claims at face value. She obtained two commercial satellite images of the area taken at the exact same time that American intelligence supposedly had found Saddam’s huge and menacing army and found nothing there but empty desert.

Do I really need to recite the misgivings and downright lies that freely skipped out of " Fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again" Bush's mouth just about every time he opened it? I would love to continue, but obviously I haven't the time.

Gregg Allman filmmakers go briefly to jail

"On Feb. 20, a freight train plowed into the crew as well as a metal-framed bed placed across the tracks as a prop on a railroad bridge spanning the Altamaha River."

"...but did not have permission from CSX Railroad to be on the actual tracks."

Was in fact DENIED permission to be on the actual tracks.

"They're not going to fly back to court just to say 'not guilty,'" Samuel said. "They are absolutely pleading not guilty."

Guilty. Stare

...but then, the post-Jimmy Carter Democratic and Republican parties seem to have a problem with being honest and telling the truth. There. Fixed it for you. At least we can agree on that, Jimmy Carter was the last moral President that we have had. And the way things are going, maybe the last we will ever have.

[quote][b]snarkydude[/b] - Funny how you and others love to criticize the fundamentalist Christians, but we never hear a peep out of you when fundamentalist Muslims kill gays, mutilate young girls, trap them in burning school buildings, kidnap them and force them into slavery, or behead non-believers.[/quote]

Whoa Snarko!!! Now you are all over the place! Why would you think I have never criticized. or condemned horrific, barbaric atrocities in other countries??? Nothing could be further from the truth. The Middle East wasn't even part of this story that I can recall. But maybe you are on to something here. All of the fundamentalist Christians who were soooo gung ho to invade that region (the ones that did not want to go themselves, or their sons or daughters, but were more than willing to let others go kill and be killed), they could be given weapons and sent over there to sort out the Muslim fundamentalists. Problem solved.

[quote][b]snarkydude[/b] - I guess your outrage is just reserved for fundamentalist Christians alone.[/quote]

Wrong again.

@snarkydude:

"Political affiliation has nothing to do with it. You'll find just as many Democrats who aren't tolerant of gays as you will Republicans."

Yeah. And the intolerant "Christian Right" has just as many Democrats affiliated with it as Republicans. Whatever.

When it comes to political gay bashing, the GOP always seems to outdo itself.

"Look into the hypocrisy pool before you jump off the diving board."

I got too close to the pool once. Saw Rick Perry, Dave Agema, and Ralph Reed in there thrashing about with all their homophobic cronies spouting out their anti-Christian views in the name of Christ. Didn't touch the diving board.

"On the other hand, Hice, a preacher and talk-show host,"

There's the second and third strikes. The first strike is he differs not that much from "Clown Broun".

I'm really glad the businesses on the Atlanta Highway and Highway 78 put up those giant "HICE" signs. I know where NOT to support them with my business and my money. Economic Idiots.

... the mayor said: "I'd much rather have somebody who drank and drank too much taking care of my child than I had somebody whose lifestyle is questionable around children, because that ain't the damn way it's supposed to be."

What an ignorant redneck.

"The fight left Moore with nearly $20,000 in legal bills."

The idiot "mayor" should be held liable for ALL expenses incurred, then be promptly run out of town on a rail. Oh, and just in case you were wondering, yes... he's a Republican. Shock

    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
