Is that anything like a RINO?

I’m sorry there’s no way that was an accident. June 22, 2016 8:50 AM Log in to Reply gcp State medical examiner, local sheriffs department and feds found no evidence of a criminal act.

June 22, 2016 10:09 AM Log in to Reply gcp And what is your evidence of criminal activity? The kid’s family already dropped their civil suit. June 22, 2016 10:20 AM edatlanta Which could be because they are flat out of money. I have no evidence. I just know that none of that gibes with common sense or, you know, how things would actually transpire in an accidental situation. June 22, 2016 11:27 AM gcp And some folks believe 9 11 was a Bush/Cheney conspiracy and Elvis is alive and living in Villa Rica, Ga. Being “flat out of money” likely describes the defendants rather than the plaintiffs.

June 22, 2016 8:39 AM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope Different eras, different skill-sets. The talent-level across the league is higher now than it ever was in Jordan’s era. I also think that LeBron carrying that Cavs roster to a championship against a 73-win Warriors team is a more significant and impressive accomplishment than any title Jordan ever won. Even if he isn’t the GOAT, LeBron is, at worst, #2 June 22, 2016 11:57 AM Log in to Reply Pete Gibbons Jordan June 22, 2016 8:40 AM Log in to Reply DrMonicaHenson Andrew is incorrect. Larry Bird is #2. June 22, 2016 12:11 PM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse “We don’t know anything about Hillary in terms of religion,” said Trump to a group of top evangelical Christian bigots…er leaders (list below) at a NYC gathering yesterday. But hey, Trump reads the Bible more than anyone else. He said so himself. Trump seeking LGBT support by casting Islam as anti-gay, then meeting days later with the bunch below to seek their support, indicates Trump thinks LGBT people are as dumb as the Evangelicals at the gathering. James Dobson, founder of both Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council. Tony Perkins, who turned Dobson’s Family Research Council into a certified anti-gay hate group. Tim Wildmon, head of the anti-gay American Family Association Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America Pat Robertson, televangelist who blamed 9/11 on gay people. Ralph Reed, who headed Pat Robertson’s Christian Coalition, and now runs the Faith & Freedom Coalition. Gary Bauer, American Values president, who before then counseled Reagan at the height of the AIDS epidemic that Reagan should have nothing to do gays. June 22, 2016 8:42 AM Log in to Reply drjay maybe his slogan could be, “we don’t really like gays either, but not to the point of like shooting them or anything”… June 22, 2016 8:45 AM Log in to Reply davidmac Not to mention that Secretary Clinton is a lifelong member of the United Methodist Church. http://religionnews.com/2016/01/29/hillary-clinton-religion-methodist/ June 22, 2016 11:44 AM Log in to Reply Will Durant Hey, if evangelicals like Ralph Reed valued their credibility, Bwahahaha!, (sorry, couldn’t hold that one in), they would just sit this one out. I still find it hard to believe that the Creator of the Universe chooses sides in sports or politics. June 22, 2016 12:06 PM Log in to Reply gcp The investigation into the death of the Valdosta teen went on too long. State and local investigations said the death was accidental yet the federal investigation and the civil case continued. Legal fees for defendants family are over $200,000.

He averaged a triple-double for an entire season! The most complete player ever! June 22, 2016 11:13 AM Log in to Reply Saltycracker The mobs are lining up behind either Clinton, Queen of the Tammany Society or a dear leader, Tsar Trump. Organized crime or disorganized whims. Crime pays better. June 22, 2016 11:30 AM Log in to Reply Will Durant I preferred Meadowlark Lemon. Only a cursory nod was given to his act being a sport unlike the typical chosen one in the NBA who was/is also allowed to ignore the rules. But, even if only a show it took mad skills to drain those shots every night. June 22, 2016 11:30 AM Log in to Reply Saltycracker Here is a thought provoking story in this month’s Outside Mag. When catastrophe strikes leagues of charities and worldwide pledges of billions results in pennies on the dollar getting to those in need, particularly when their government is “there to help”.

While every one figures out what to do and how to pay for it, traffic increases, and median barriers are left on hold.

I am so afraid for my family and friends down that way. June 22, 2016 4:35 PM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
