On this date in 1996, an Atlanta-bound ValuJet DC-9 caught fire shortly after takeoff from Miami and crashed into the Everglades. All 110 people on board were killed.

Please pray for all of the firefighters from around the state and North Florida as they battle the continuously-growing #WestMimsFire.

I remember the last huge swamp fire back in 2007, although I had to look up the name. The Georgia Bay Complex fire was four times bigger than West Mims and sent smoke as far north as Charlotte where residents called 911 in concern. Several days I could smell that fire in Norcross and north of there. It smelled like garbage burning. It burned for two months, was never controlled, and only ended when a tropical storm dumped several inches of rain on it. Otherwise it would probably have burned its way to the coast. West Mims is getting the… Read more »

I call “bull” on the cop article. This hero worship has to stop. I witnessed 3 local Ellijay cops eating at our local Mexican restaurant. Some boomer rube came up and told them he was buying their dinner, keep up the good work, back slaps, etc. After the man left, the officers looked at each other, rolled their eyes, shook their heads, someone said something low and the others chuckled. I think I heard “what a sucker.” or some such disparagement. One cop’s foot was doing that strange thing people do with their feet only when on meth. That fast… Read more »

Rickday – Your opinion. My beliefs are based on 1st hand experience and not some dud correlating data; In 2003 a Cherokee County Sheriff’s Deputy climbed into an overturned truck with an arcing power line across the truck to keep a trapped 13 year old kid from going into shock and dieing. The truck rested on the boys right arm with the arm almost ripped off. The deputy did not have to risk his life to save my Son – he could have waited until the power company cut the arcing cable. He put his life out there to keep… Read more »

Sorry, but your “one time, this…”

does not dismiss the reality of what I typed. There are bad actors out there, and they outweigh the few goods ones. The few ‘good ones’ are silent and go along. The cycle perpetuates.

Racism and drug abuse is systemic within the Criminal Justice Community.

Rick, you’re more of a dipsh*t today than normal. You legitimately need mental help and soon. I have no doubt every poster on here, regardless of political leanings, has a positive story of how a cop has helped us or someone we know.

If I get under the skin of christian conservative trump apologists like you, then I am certainly on the right track.

Thanks for the moral compass calibration. 🙂

This Comey thing is hysterical. I just heard a tape of a long list of Dems saying, not long ago, how Comey just “had to go” for various reasons. Oh, Lord is this just funny and sad.

I was surprised that the AJC didn’t identify Jared Kushner, with no government experience, no policy experience, no diplomatic experience, and business experience limited to his family’s real estate development firm, as in the running for FBI Director.

He’s only been tasked with negotiating peace in the Middle East, solving America’s opioid epidemic, diplomacy with Mexico and China, reforming care for veterans, reforming the criminal justice system, and reinventing the entire government and making it work like a business, so being FBI Director responsibilities would be a cakewalk for a can-do Trump family member.

McCabe said no request for additional funds for Russia investigation everrrrr requested. Doesn’t work that way. Typical fake news. Gotta keep up That Narrative, though! LMAO! Trump needs to continue to grind the press into dust under his wingtips!

Technically “I cannot confirm that request was made… we don’t typically request resources for an individual case. I strongly believe the Russia investigation is adequately resourced.” is not everrrrr requested.

The computer thing is going to be a real pain. Ol’ Noway is heading to Sri Lanka soon. So, i guess I can use the laptop on the way through Europe/Asia but not on the way back.
Sigh…I just hope it isn’t stolen from hold luggage on the way back home.

Quit complaining. Do your part, patriot, there are terrorists out there and Trump thinks you might be in cahoots with one of them.

Suck it up, it’s all part of the patriot act. And I’m not talking legislation, either.

OMG, Noway — what *will* G/P do without you while in Sri Lanka?? The Brown Shirt liberal fascists will have free reign to shout down anyone who disagrees with them.
How long will you be gone, sane man?

‘Bout six weeks. Seeing as how you and I are really the only ones around here who challenge them with regularity, I shall depend on you to speak for us both!! And to Rick, I’ll be there to do a small part in stopping them there terrorists from making mischief over there.

I’ll do my best, as time allows. Take good care of yourself, and I don’t want to see you on any of those news reports of airplane brawls! God speed.

Maxine Waters….

Dozens of Republicans placing party over principle any given week—it’s becoming the newest GOP litmus test. Thanks for keeping it fair and balanced.

Are you referring to this Maxine Waters? The one who hated Comey before she loved him?

Yep.

There’s a at least a half dozen Gohmerts or Kings for every Waters. It’s conservatives’ understanding idea of balance.
