NCAA says Gurley must sit two more games

$3,000! Who at UGA thought he would only miss 2 games? That goes beyond a little spending money. I'd kick him off the team. I care more about the paper I have hanging on my wall that says University of Georgia on it, than I care about winning football games. And yes, I am a season ticket holder. I don't want UGA to become a joke like FSU or Auburn.

Another day, still no word on UGA star Gurley

Gurley should have gone to FSU. They would have swept this under the rug. Heck, FSU just had a player who was accused of domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend, and they allow him to play.

Gunman in Canada attack complained about mosque

"Rashid said the Muslim association has been working on a preventive program that focuses on minimizing the effect of terrorist and criminal propaganda in Canada. He decried the recent violence."...

Moderate Muslims better start doing something, because their religion has been hijacked.

Podcast: Oconee County's wild finish, North Oconee takes on Buford and a big Region 8-AAAAA matchup

I was talking to a buddy of mine whose son plays high school football, and he told me Buford can accept students from outside their school district. I don't follow high school athletics and don't know if this is true or not, but this would seem to give Buford a huge advantage in athletics over schools with a similar size enrollment. Private schools would have the same advantage. Do these schools compete against schools with a similar size enrollment, or do they compete against schools with a larger enrollment?

9 UNC employees fired or disciplined in scandal

Do the alumni of UNC care more about the academic reputation of their alma mater, or do they care more about their UNC sports prowess? You expect this from Auburn and FSU, but UNC has a good academic reputation.

FBI: Denver girls may have tried to join jihadis

These girls should ask teenage girl from Austria how fun it is to be in ISIS. She is pregnant and wants to go home. She is probably already dead.

UPDATE: Shots fired inside Candian Parliament

It seems a fairly large amount of Muslims misinterpret the Quran. Perhaps, instead of sending soldiers into the Middle East, we should be sending thousands of reading tutors.

Georgia electorate shrinks; fewer new voters are white

This would explain the Georgia dems sending out a rather shameless race baiting political flier. The flier targets the gullible, using the the Ferguson shooting as a political scare tactic. See link below. I may have missed it, but I do not believe our local paper covered the story. The Dem's defense of the flier is hilarious.

FBI: Denver girls may have tried to join jihadis

These girls should ask the 2 teens from Austria how fun ISIS can be. They are both pregnant and want to go home. I am sure they will end up dead.

Young impressionable teens are easy targets for cults.

Polman: 'Dark money' driving politics to new lows

[quote][b]marshalld[/b] -

Our government was taken out of the hands of citizens long ago and purchased by corporations long ago. Our "elected" government exists to exercise the will of very powerful and wealthy individuals, usually without any disclosure at all. It's a shame we've gone from a "government for the people" to a "government for sale".

[/quote]

You nailed it. I used to be a Libertarian, and I believed government should stay 100% out of people's lives and businesses' operations. I believed businesses would act in the best interest of their stockholders. I believed businesses would protect their brand reputation by acting in the best interest of he population. 20 years of working or 2 large corporations, showed me how wrong I was. The executives' bonuses had little to do with profitability, but a lot to do with giving the false impression of a healthy government. Many times my bonus was tied to targets that were not in the best interest of the company's profitability, but tied to making the company appear more liquid. One of the companies I worked for filled the pockets of congress so our company could strip the land of it's trees. The congressmen we bought cared nothing of the people. They were only looking to line their pockets.

Thomas Jefferson was out of the country when the Constitution was written. He was shocked when he found out there were no term limits for elected officials. He knew this would result in career politicians, who would in an attempt to keep their political job, would be purchased by the highest bidder. He was correct.

Richt tweets he's 'not anticipating' Gurley playing at Arkansas

Why can't UGA be more like FSU? FSU and the local police will help cover up rapes (allegedly..ha), let their players shoplift, let their players shoot out windows with BB guns, let their players stand on tables and scream sexual comments at the student center., etc, etc; without any punishment on the players?. FSU is totally committed to winning football games, regardless to how they damage their schools reputation. FSU has their priorities in line. Win football games at all costs, even if it makes your university look like a total joke.

Three men robbed on College Station Road

"Police said that while those two men were occupied, the third victim took off running to try to get help."

When their buddy bailed, there must have been an awkward silence between the 2 remaining victims and the robbers.

Police shooting protests continue in St. Louis

I am going to protest for the 39 police officers who have been killed by gunfire this year. Who wants to join me? Oh that's right, we all have jobs we must attend.

It is comical the media continues to state his family said he wasn't armed. What a surprise!

Rain dampens police shooting protests in Missouri

So these people are angry because a police officer was fired upon, and then returned fire? Brilliant.

It must be hard for all these people to take time off work so they can protest. Probably using a bunch of personal days.

As UGA prepares for Missouri, Gurley gets a lawyer

For $400, throwing away a very good chance to win the Heisman. Not to mention, letting your team mates down. If he took money, there is no one to blame but Gurley. He will mak millions in the pros, but he will be haunted by what he may have cost himself this year.

    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
