Militants post photos of mass killing in Iraq

Pack up George Bush and his slimy cohorts in steamer trunks and parachute drop them in the middle of this mess, with stickers on the top and all sides that read "I broke it. I bought it."

'Duck Dynasty' relative running for Congress

Bobble heads and T-shirts coming soon to a Walmart near you. Then again...

"A nephew of "Duck Dynasty's" Phil Robertson"... "Zach Dasher, a 36-year-old Republican who has never run for office,"

Three strikes. You're out.

Andrea Sneiderman released from prison

At least they had the decency to wait 22 minutes after the official end of Father's Day to let her out. What a travesty.

Athens teen with pants on fire charged with torching car

There was a burning car. A man running away from the burning car. Running man carrying a flaming gas can with his pants on fire.

And it took them four months to arrest him? Puzzled

New Lyndon House supervisor wants to improve center's visibility

@nowheregirl: I think the good fairy already has a wand, and wings. I've seen some bad fairies, they never look like that. Wink Also, she gives it away in her last sentence.

New Lyndon House supervisor wants to improve center's visibility

"One change will be moving the art book library out of the office space it currently inhabits — Dunphy’s new office, to be exact — and make it accessible for all to use."

“It’s been behind a closed door,” said Dunphy, who also noted her plans to add up-to-date books to the collection, as well as better cataloguing what’s on hand. “If the staff can be seen using the library for reference and study, patrons will turn to them as well.”

Dang folks!!! Don't y'all even read and try to comprehend what the article states before making buffonish comments???

Arkansas pastor is new Southern Baptist president

"According to the resolution", "God's design was the creation of two distinct and complementary sexes, male and female."

I suppose that would mean he will never take into account the more than 1500 children born each year possessing both male AND female reproductive organs(intersex).

Yeah, and our planet is only 6000 years old blah, blah, blah. This would be a good time to interject a lyric from John Lennon's song, Gimme Some Truth...

"I'm sick to death of hearing things from uptight, short sighted, narrow minded, hypocritics"

GOP struggles to recruit black voters, candidates

@snarkydude: "Blacks have forgotten that the Republicans helped pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It would not have passed without Republican efforts."

It would not have passed without LBJ strong arming the dissenters in Congress, privately, one by one, and threatening to ruin them politically if they did not fall in line.

New trial in teen's death over loud music argument

Why is it that the people who listen to that rap/hiphop junk think that everyone at the gas station wants to hear that crap from their car while they are gassing up, then go in the store with it still blasting??? I've never wanted to shoot someone because of it, but I have in fact fantasized about walking over and blowing out their radio with my .45. Angry

You could have just let the headline simply read " GOP struggles". That would be more than accurate.

New rock station launches in Athens

"Francis, along with three disc jockeys — sometimes more — run the station, which operates from The Fred Building on College Avenue in downtown Athens."

Excuse me, but... that building was, and ALWAYS will be, The Southern Mutual building to old school (not necessarily old) native Atheniens. Angry

Authorities to investigate drug raid that injured child

@TeeWee: I agree with your stance that the militarization of police is getting out of control, and is evidenced by this and many other stories in the news that are becoming all too commonplace. But, working Sergeant Schultz into your comment, along with double posting in a singular post is deserving of more than a +3. Big smile

Police commissioner resigns in wake of Obama slur

"A handful of people at the meeting spoke on behalf of Copeland, saying he had a right to free speech."

These ignorant people make me sick. Of course he had a right to free speech. Say what you want, then suffer the consequences for your idiotic statements. No one is denying his right to say what he wants, just know that your outlandish and outdated comments can, and will have repercussions (You listening Phil Fakeman?).

Son accused of killing parents with Samurai sword

[quote][b]mike59[/b] -

we can do better than a third world country on punishment than that u guys.

[/quote]

Some third world countries will lop off your hand if you are caught stealing. Guess what??? There are not a lot of thieves there.

An individual that kills both of his parents with swords in brutal fashion, leaving, as the Dekalb County police chief said a "horrific scene" (and I'm sure he's seen some nasty stuff), do not deserve to live. Or people who do things like kidnap a 19 year old kid fresh out of high school, shoot her twice, then laugh while they bury that poor child alive deserve a fate far worse than living the rest of their life in prison, or, at some point paroled and out walking amongst us. And a tiny blurb in the paper 20-30 years later about executing someone (behind closed doors) does NOTHING to possibly deter some future heinous crime.

I care not a bit what happens to the predators. But let their demise be a lesson to future would be imitators.

I care more that our nations healthcare for a whole lot of years has been ranked lower than some third world countries.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    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.

    Winter storm drama

    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
