Am I an extremist or is Newsweek? I'm just curious because I have been called names here. I've been told that I'm extremist, and that I post too many news links and images. So strange that I'm the extremist here. Why just look, here's Newsweek and yet I'm the extremist? I've been called a racist by some here because I didn't support Obama. But is this Newsweek image of Obama not racist? But I guess some of y'all text all the time, and have short attention spans, and just like to engage in ad hom attacks instead of using logic and reason and considering all viewpoints. How sad.

From Wikpedia (as this seems to be the only source of information that some of y'all lend credence to.):

"Newsweek is an American weekly news magazine published in New York City. It is distributed throughout the United States and internationally. It is the second-largest news weekly magazine in the U.S., having trailed Time in circulation and advertising revenue for most of its existence. Newsweek is published in four English language editions and 12 global editions written in the language of the circulation region."--Wikipedia

"Newsweek apparently wasn't content with a racist message that discriminates against the elderly. Emblazoned on the cover is the caption: "The Obama Conquest." According to Newsweek, Obama didn't just win an election, he conquered the country."--BY: JOE NEWBY

    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.

    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
