11-year-old tries to fight Athens officers

...The grandmother was taking care of the boy while his mother was at work, according to police.....

I wonder why the father wasn't watching the kid? Silly me, never mind.

Jonathan Taylor's gone — what does it mean for UGA?

[quote][b]LaMareaRoja[/b] -

@crazy8golfer:

It also means that 'dem DAWGS will continue to be Pretenders for another 34 years or so. You recruit obese thugs, you dismiss obese thugs. G.I.G.O. = Garbage In Garbage Out.

UGA = Pretenders since 1980

The University of Miami = National Champions: 1983, 1987, 1989, 1991, 2001.

And that did wonders for the reputation of Miami. Good riddance.

CNN reassigns reporter after 'scum' tweet

Is she a news journalist or an Op-Ed writer? Pretty simple question. The line does get somewhat blurred these days.

Athens to become home to increasing number of refugees

The US was built by people who came to his country and wanted to make a better life for themselves. They also wanted to become citizens. I welcome anyone who comes to this country to work heir butt off and becomes a citizen. To not do to so is un-American.

Israelis destroy Hamas tunnels in Gaza offensive

Imagine that, Israel doesn't like rockets being fired into its population. Israel needs to ignore all the international chatter and wipe out Hamas. They are a bunch of terrorist who profit from conflict with Israel. If his were not true, they would have accepted the truce.

1 in 5 of Gaza dead are children

@marshalld: It continues to amaze me that some people are under the assumption Hamas or the Middle Eastern countries give a damn about the Palestinians.

In Georgia Senate race, voters weigh experience vs. outsider

Thomas Jefferson thought leaving term limits out of our constitution was a critical mistake. He knew the damage career politicians would bring on our country.

It is evident by the first 2 stories that Athens doesn't have a monopoly on male losers.

Israel invades Gaza after Hamas rejects truce

Of course Hamas rejected the truce, their leadership has never wanted peace with Israel. The Palestinians have always been nothing more than a pawn for it's Arab neighbors.

Germany wins entertaining World Cup

Football, the American brand, will always be my true love, but I must say I found soccer to be pretty damn entertaining. More entertaining than baseball..

Ex-'Opie & Anthony' host won't apologize for rant

Thank god. Someone who won't apologize for making sounds out of their mouths. This country has become a bunch of thin skinned wimps. So easily hurt by words. They were not my show of choice on Sirius, but I respect his non- apology.

Push continues for convention of states to amend U.S. Constitution

A definite "yes" on term limits. During the writing of the constitution, Thomas Jefferson was in France and had no input on the document. He was horrified to see no term limits on congressional or presidential terms. Just look at today's congress and senate, and you will know why he was so scared.

Macon cat rescue group will soon be homeless

[quote][b]Yellow Dog[/b] -

One of those strange times when I agree with you! I lived there in the '70's and it was depressing then. A "little" big town. You didn't have a chance in the local society unless you were a member of the country club or if Mr. Fickling had planted one of his famed cherry trees in your front yard. Totally depressing place to live... Smile

That is funny. I lived there in the 90's and had the EXACT same experience. It will still be the same experience in the 2040's.

Despite hits, no radio love yet for country rap

[quote][b]Humbucker bob[/b] -

First of all modern country isn't country at all, but it is pop music disguised as country music. Rap isn't even music. Combining these two genres together is like mixing puke with vomit and hoping it turns into a sandwich.

New country is an embarrassment. Pretty boys trying to be pop stars. It is actually amusing o listen to the lyrics. Every song contains either something about small town living, flashbacks to growing up, or going to a bar with friends.

Man., everything is homeless in Macon: cats, people, dogs, rats, etc.. I have lived all over the US, and Macon is the worst city I have ever lived. It is on th US "most broke" list, and the FBI's "top crime" list. Just a horrid place.

Athens man crashes while DUI, leaves the scene to report his car stolen

He should have said someone beat the [filtered word] out of him, and then stole his car.

Justin Bieber to be charged with vandalism

He reminds me of a gang member from one of those horrid 80's break dance movies. One of those wusses who they tried to make look tough, but they just couldn't wipe the wimp out of him.

    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
