UGA breaks bowl drought, records, and Bo Pelini’s heart.

How Georgia’s Congressmen voted on the “fiscal cliff postponement bill.”

Georgia’s best stocks in 2012.

Six deaths on Georgia roads over the holiday weekend.

The birth rate is falling; just let some snow fall, it’ll shoot back up.

More on Georgia targeting “pill mills” in the next legislative session. Hopefully anything passed by the General Assembly will not only serve as clamp down on what you can get here, but also provide the resources to help these folks with their addiction. Otherwise, they will find another State and drive there.

Our economic salvation is at hand: Goats.

“Roads? Where we are going, we don’t need roads.” We need bear tunnels.

And for your musical selection, and primarily because a friend on Facebook posted about it, Kool and the Gang.

    Didnt we pass a law a few years ago to make it illegal to purposely kill a bear with a car? Like, don’t lure bears into the road to kill them? If you got people so eager to kill a bear they’ll do that, is it not true that we’ll probably have some hunters hanging out at the entrances to these bear tunnels?

      Fear the vulture:

      HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) — Visitors to parts of Everglades National Park are getting tarps and bungee cords to make their vehicles less delectable to vultures.

      Migrating vultures have developed a habit of ripping off windshield wipers, sunroof seals, and other rubber and vinyl vehicle parts. Visitors to the park’s Homestead and Flamingo entrances are loaned “anti-vulture kits” to protect their vehicles.

    ACC, baby.

    Curious what people’s resolutions are?

    1) Love America more (impossible)
    B ) Be less awesome (probably unattainable)
    III) Stop biting my nails (likely the most challenging of the three)

      GADA has fought this fight before the invention of the fuel injection system to replace carburetors. At some point, this was going to happen. The “birthday tax” is gone, now! What a trade.

    Now here is a way to guarantee global warming.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Al-Jazeera, the Pan-Arab news channel that has struggled to win space on American cable television, is negotiating to buy Al Gore’s Current TV and with it, access to 60 million U.S. homes, according to a person familiar with the matter.

    • saltycracker says:

      Done deal:

      The former vice president confirmed the sale Wednesday, saying in a statement that Al-Jazeera shares Current TV’s mission “to give voice to those who are not typically heard; to speak truth to power; to provide independent and diverse points of view; and to tell the stories that no one else is telling.”

    I wonder if any in the Occupy Wall Street movement realize how badly they have been played by Obama and the Democrats. In spite of all the talk of taxing the rich, the effective techniques by which super rich individuals and corporations avoid paying taxes are still in place. The dividend rate stays at 15%, cap gains rate only rises to 20%, and all the global tax minimization tools are still in place. Warren Buffet is happy. What a country!
