In the late 70's I received three whacks with a wooden paddle in Jr. High for talking back to the teacher. By the way in school suspension is no punishment. Then My Father went after me with a belt after I got home. That wasnt child abuse, that was punishment for screwing up because I knew better. There is a direct link from ones rear-end to their brain. I promise you.
Todays kids KNOW we as adults cannot touch them physically. What has been the recourse over the years? In school suspension. What a joke. Believe me it only takes one or two good paddlings and todays kids would get the message.
Time-out is discipline? Is it any wonder the world is a mess?
The head of Atlanta Watershed says employees resent an audit questioning 10,000 missing water meters. I can round up 100 honest , qualified workers to take their place if they will just leave.
Explain to me why you feel it's okay to flick your cigarette butts on the roads and streets and highways we all share.
The Hawks could potentially be sold to another city? Dont tease me.
Govt. official holds two full time jobs @ two govt. agencies. "both found it bothersome" & he was hard to reach on the phone". You can't make this stuff up!!!
Another DeKalb employee ripping off the taxpayers. Who is sailing that ship? is there no accountability?
I'm totally on board with the domestic abuse cause. It's wrong, but how about if the abuser works for Coca-Cola, IBM, drive a garbage truck, or is the postman, do they lose their job too?
The death of Daniel John Zeitz by a 16-year-old mother with her child in the car should be the final blow to all the senseless disregard for life by too many in this metropolis. Nobody seems to care when young students are robbed or young people killed over nothing.
I make deposits at 7 banks and credit unions every month. SunTrust always takes the longest time. With all that money they have to throw at the Braves, couldn't they hire a few more bank tellers?
Complaining about MARTA is like beating a dead horse...
Wow, a Federal Reserve Chair actually said the American people need to save more. Now that's Ia novel idea that I haven't heard from one of our country's leaders in over 25 years.
Banks should be profitable now loaning money at 30 times what they are paying to borrow it.
We have politicians willing to use public funds for football teams but not a peep about public funds going to help our symphony. What are we? Barbarians?
Foods just shouldn't have chemicals in them which harm people. Now they are putting plastic beads in toothpaste. The FDA shouldn't allow this. Look how the cancer rate is growing.
A. No job is insignificant. B. Everyone has a low-paying job at some point in his life. C. Everyone has an opinion, including you clearly, and you can't tell whether it is valid until you listen to it. D. Even if you decide the opinion is foolish, you have learned something by listening to it.
Go ahead force yourself in front of me when there is no room. I will not slam on my brakes to let you in, more or less I'll let you slam into me and then I'll sue you!
The laser focused on the economy...has anyone checked the batteries lately?
Disgusting and Unladylike. Same when having a convo with the other person in another stall. Unless you're saying "please pass me some paper"' ..Shouldn't happen.
What is wrong with Sunday voting? It is common in democracies all over the world.
I'd vote "yes" to making Underground Atlanta a major casino attraction if they'd promise to pump 100% of the proceeds to improving Metro Atlanta traffic.
Braves replacing their "A" logo with an "M" for Marietta? Interesting idea. Considering how they've been hitting, they can use the old Macon Braves uniforms and hats.
If you don't see TV ads for "real" colleges or universities it isn't because they do not use the medium, it's because of the programs that you're (NOT) watching.
Marietta/Cobb is part of "metropolitan" Atlanta.
Are they any guys left to play in the NFL?
Dear Childless: You are definitely missing something. It does not mean you're selfish, but you're surely missing something wonderful in life.
Since the individual stocks which make up the Dow Jones and S&P 500 are ever-changing why is there any significance in either of these two indicators hitting "all time highs"? Couldn't that be done simply by replacing one stock with another which trades at higher per share prices?
If you don't want children, that is your choice. I do think raising children helps a person to mature.
Gentlemen, talking on your cell phone in the bathroom stall is a good use of time.
Gravity is a scientific fact and doesn't take one to "believe" in it. So is an increasingly warmer Earth a fact. Deny it all you want--you can deny gravity also, but it's still a fact.
I always tip women waiters more than men because I know they are working for less per hour than men.
