If they build this statue - someone (not saying who (me)) will burn it down unless it is a crime to write that someone (not saying who (me)) would burn down the bronze statue in which case this is just art, a comment(ary), and a joke...I won't really burn it down, really I will...not...not burn it down. (the second not listed is for dramatic affect not to negate the negative and turn it into a positive (as some law enformer might try to say I was doing)). Peace to God. Peace to the Greeks. Death to Zell Miller. Long Live CHAVEZ!
Is that the Weather Channel, a privately owned company by Landmark Communications, receives tax payer money in the form of research grants and other funds derived by its active lobbyists that they employ in Washington.
Did you know your tax payer money is given to the Weather Channel? Probably not.
With all the respect the city of Atlanta does not get from this state goverment, how would they feel if we succeed and form an indepentent state of Atlanta? Just think of all of the tax dollars we could use to improve this city!
Well, I guess the now old proverb is true after all, "Sonny lied."
to hear, that there is so much racism in the US. I think many people don't know where this can end. As I live just 50 kilometers (~30 miles) from hitlers birth town I'm forced to think about this topic. So I can advise you to distance yourself from rightish groups.
What a feeble attempt at satire! Plus, although you try to insult Tom Price, you really insult poor people. Honestly, I have no idea about Mr. Price's "healthcare dollars," but maybe he is trying to set up a system where people can get the coverage that they need rather than having coverage for stuff they don't need which would use up resources. You see, insurance and service aren't free. Anyway, you go on to insult poor people as pathetic drunks who can't even make choices. It is nice to know that we have liberals like yourself who will help them make the decisions that impact their lives since they are too poor and too ignorant to make their own choices. Typical liberal garbage. Here's what a conservative would do: a conservative would explain the choices to a person and let them decide what to do. Sure, they may make a bad decision (like buy beer). Under liberal control, people don't have to make any decisions because we have smart liberals to make decisions for us. Thanks Vince!
This Tom Price guy is a smart man. Really realistic and you can tell that he has considered everybody in his observation. No surprise that he is Republican. See, I would like control of my healthcare dollars...who wouldn't? That is genius. Even poor people that struggle to buy groceries can agree that they should control their own heathcare dollars. If the poor people blow it and buy beer instead, then it is their own fault and their kids deserve to die from curable illness. Great sense, Tom. You deserve the humanitarian award for putting us in control! YEAH!
Trotting out the same 'ole same 'ole Civil Rights-era verbage for the Eaves campaign, at a point in time and a place where it wasn't needed, nor relevant, backfired -- for Shirley and for Lewis. (Andy's not relevant etiher right now.) I think Lewis has opened-up his own door for a challenge, finally, next go 'round. And if I was a betting broad, I'd even go so far as to say it'll be a young black whippersnapper to come forward and do just that.
I have never heard a commercial evoke images of racial injustice in order to scare the poor and elderly without cause. He basically called all Republicans racists who want to go back to the days of attack dogs and firehoses. He claimed that their lives depended on it...not in the metaphoric way, but in the real, literal way...like Republicans were going to drive up anyday now to lynch poor blacks. It was utterly preposterous...and well beneath such a "statesman" as you write in your short commentary.
Please don't forget who was in power in Washington in 1965. Yep, that's right.....The Democrats.
Does she not remember the 5,000 plus women/children who were brutally murdered because of freaks like her? WICCA/Paganism has no word for devil or evil- those are words created by Christians when trying to force everyone to be Christian in the 14th century. Saying Wicca is evil or that we worship the devil is as dumb as saying Christians worship the devil- duh. LET'S FOCUS ON THE UNDERLYING REMARKS THIS WOMAN IS MAKING- THAT WITCHES/WICCA IS EVIL- once again a very uneducated opinion. Christians have murdered more people in history, trying to force their beliefs on people while pagans and witches simply love the earth and everything on it.
Georgia appears to favor rewarding discrimination; if not with outright awards, then accepting silence. This is The South, remember? Caring, nondiscriminating people are viewed as unicorns here.
She wanted to ban a book that she admitted on a television interview she hadn't bothered to read all the way through. What happened to doing research before presenting a point?
Very well done and clever article! I particularly enjoyed the last (ironic) quote. I got a good and positive chuckle (AKA "belly laugh"?) Good research on your part-and memory--using THAT specific reference, I thought.
The parallels between fictional and non-fictional are interesting to consider. It's GOOD that JKR and Harry, through her, will be available for ALL who want a marvelous, intelligent read AND a true E-ticket thrill ride in Gwinnett library!
Is this lady so freakin' bored that she has to attack a book series which is based on a culture that has a rich history of magic? Is she so retarded that she does not see that it's based in ENGLAND - the birthplace of the Western World's idea of witchcraft? She was probably one of the followers of the idea to ban Barney the Dinosaur because he has magical powers too. Here's a suggestion: Lady, go make yourself useful and choke on something. Save some air and food for those of us who have better things to do with our lives.
I'm happy the books are staying in the school because i just find they learn the diffrence between good and evil,and they are good for the children
...with the first comment. He seems to tap into the inner thoughts of the post-9/11 American citizen which they don't want to admit to themselves or others. Many of his comments mirror my own feelings. I don't like to identify as "liberal" or "conservative" or even "moderate", but more as a citizen who wants to see some action to change our current climate, rather than here a bunch of people whining about what happened years before.
Beck cuts through all the fluff in the news and gives you an objective, politically incorrect and refreshing point of view. You have to understand that the guy is not a journalist; he is a commentator and gets paid to give his opinions, which are, by the way, that of many Americans. I heard the comments quoted above and of course taken out of the entire context you can make them look bad. This guy is not a liberal (or should I say progressive) talk show host. If what you are looking for is conservative bashing, my advise to you is go some place else to get your ears tickled. In Becks words, I need some duct tape
., quickly, before my head explodes.
AJC reported in 503 words the activities of "hundreds of marchers" and recount in 294 words about supporters of the invasion of Iraq who had decided to stay home.
The way they framed the story a letter writer came to the conclusion that there was a counter demonstration. How is that news coverage?
