GOP presses state bills limiting gay rights before ruling

@cyou299: Republicans are all for smaller government as long as it is an issue they agree with. Hypocrites.

I see the GOP is once again tackling the important issues. What's next? A flag burning constitutional amendment?

IS-linked militants say countdown for Japan's hostages began

The Japanese have been mocking ISIS on Twitter. Making fun of their corny videos. Very funny stuff.

GOP pushes abortion bill through House after earlier stumble

I'll say this for the GOP, they are willing to throw away the presidential election over the abortion issue.

'Comply, then complain' guidance offered at Athens forum on police and community relations

@TeeWee: this area has great police officers who are way underpaid. I would love to know what you are basing your insulting opinion on.

Family waits decades to report disappearance of woman found dead in Oglethorpe County

Every time they reconstruct someone from a skeleton the person looks like a Neanderthal.

Man punched in drive-thru of Bojangles

@Oistrakh: sorry meant to give you a plus.

I agree. What a total wuss to punch a 62 year old man. Sit in your car and laugh at the fool

Athens woman reports nude photos on website

When will people learn? Once you take a nude photo of yourself, you shouldn't be surprised when it ends up online. It will be there forever, for everyone you jave known or will know to see.

Police: Teen sweethearts blaze trail of crime across South

So Mike59, I guess you see nothing wrong with an 18 year old having a relationship with a 13 year old? Disturbing.

Athens 'Black Lives Matter' forum brings crowd to library

Bravo. Sounds like great dialogue between law enforcement and the community. Far more constructive than misinformed protestors screaming at the police. "Comply, then complain" is the most intelligent comment I have heard since this thing started.

An 18 year old rapist ruining a 13 year old's life. I think sweethearts is the wrong term.

Authorities searching for 2 teens, 18 and 13, suspected in crime spree

Is it really called dating when it is an 18 year old and a 13 year old? Isn't that rape?

VIDEO: Belgian authorities say 15 arrested in sweep

Europe has turned a blind eye towards radical Muslims over the past years, and now they have a major problem on their hands. Only 2 weeks ago, France had 2 separate attacks carried out by Muslims, but refused to say the attacks were related to terrorism; instead, saying the attacks were isolated acts of violence. By the way, we are not talking about a couple hundred radical Muslims in Europe, we are talking about thousands.

Patterson: Faith communities could improve protest movements

@cyou299: I didn't say police had the right to shoot anybody without reason, nor do I see it as a racial issue. A grand jury who saw a lot more evidence than you or I, didn't think their was evidence to suggest the officer acted illegally. We are talking about split second decisions that mean life or death for the police officer. Everyone seems to think life is a video game, where a cop can just press the restart button when they are shot. If someone scuffles with a cop, aren't they raising the seriousness of the situation? If someone is worried about being shot by the police, why would you ever resist arrest?

Cowsert: Taxes, criminal justice system to be part of legislative session

I would like to know why you were against your constituents having the ability to even vote on Sunday alcohol sales. Do you not think the people who voted to put you in office have the intelligence level to decide if the public should be able to by a beer on Sunday? I'm not a big drinker and could really care less about alcohol sales; however, it is irritating when someone who is supposed to be for smaller government is against people having the right to make their own decisions. Are you truly smaller government, or only for smaller government on issues that agree with your personal opinion? If you are the latter, you are not really for smaller government.

Patterson: Faith communities could improve protest movements

Today's police protests/riots are perpetrated by individuals who do not have a clue concerning the realities of a police officers world. Unarmed black men? How is a policeman supposed to know if a suspect is not carrying a weapon in their clothes? How many police officers are killed by individuals they know are armed? This notion of unarmed black men being shot down is absolutely flawed. It is so easy for someone pushing a pen behind a desk to tell if someone is unarmed. Go out on the street and wrestle a full grown man, and than tell me if he is armed 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
