Re: “First Slice 8/1/14: Ebola patient to receive treatment at Emory Hospital, some Americans fear pandemic

@G_L
While an outbreak is extremely unlikely you are definitely increasing the odds by transporting the virus here.
The fact that they are taking the risk, however small, makes me think there is something else going on.

Re: “Atlanta's not a world-class city

How can you claim Atlanta isn't tourism-based when it's the #2 source of income in the city, and the region is 2nd only to Las Vegas in hotel rooms?

This whole Ebola thing has highlighted just how ridiculously ignorant the average person is regarding modern medicine and the systems involved therein.

You people are just haters. Our globally-reaching airport is a great place to meet guys! Even if you can see an indentation on the finger where they just took off their wedding ring before sidling up to you at the $8.00 cup of coffee kiosk.

Thank God I never drive downtown. Why would you when you can take MARTA and not have to deal with traffic, aggressive cops and parking fees?

So what exactly is the alternative? Not repair the bridge? What are people bitching about?

^^^ This is either the most ironically (and poorly) placed (not to mention rather inept) spam ever, or a really great piece of understated satire. I don't think it's satire.

Re: “The best of AccessNorthGa.com

Problem: HP Printer not connecting to my laptop.

I had an issue while connecting my 2 year old HP printer to my brother's laptop that I had borrowed for starting my own business. I used a quick google search to fix the problem but that did not help me.

I then decided to get professional help to solve my problem. After having received many quotations from various companies, i decided to go ahead with Online Tech Repair (www.onlinetechrepairs.com).

Reasons I chose them over the others:
1) They were extremely friendly and patient with me during my initial discussions and responded promptly to my request.
2) Their prices were extremely reasonable.
3) They were ready and willing to walk me through the entire process step by step and were on call with me till i got it fixed.
My Experience
I loved the entire friendly conversation that took place with them. They understood my needs clearly and acted upon the solution immediately. Being a technical noob, i sometimes find it difficult to communicate with tech support teams. It was a very different experience with the guys at Online Tech Repairs. You can check out their website www.onlinetechrepairs.com or call them on 1-914-613-3786.
Would definitely recommend this service to anyone who needs help fixing their computers.
Thanks a ton guys. Great Job....!!

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

Intended to say, " The funding of nazi movements around the world to quash human rights is nothing new." In 2nd to last paragraph.

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

Hamas has a charter calling for the genocide of Jews, which is not surprising given that it (and fatah) are direct offshoots of the Husseini-Eichmann genocide movement. Husseini was the nazi muti (appointed by the British just as all Islamic leaders are appointed by the Western imperialists) who convinced Hitler to slaughter all the Jews of Europe.

In 1948, the British were sabotaging partition, helping the Arabs kill Jews, and importing German and Bosnian nazis to assist the Arabs.

So while Andisheh prefers a nice, US government issued, revisionist history--I tell it like it is, the 'lies my teacher told me' reality.

Yes, the US government does give Israel money that then comes directly back to the US in exchange for weapons and US treasuries.

Why does Israel need the weapons? Because the US (first and foremost) and the EU fund and prop hamas and fatah via funding of the UNRWA. This is our government's (not so) covert policy--funding clerical fascism to better eradicate womens/civil/workers' rights, ensuring division between Arabs and Jews.

Not surprisingly, US media lies for US policy, and portrays US policy as really 'kewl'. Thus we have Andisheh serving as a submitted and loyal shill for US policy, sticking up for the poor tormented quislings of hamas, the (phony) 'grass roots' movement funded and propped by Western ruling elites. The funding of nazi movements around the world to human rights is nothing new. The government has been engaging in this 'captive nation' program since the 1950s.

The death of civilians is unfortunate--but the only logical outrage can lie with the clerical fascists, the sharia inflictors and baby-shield users, of hamas and the politicians that fund hamas. It is only rational that the IDF would protect Israelis. And the US bombs other countries killing hundreds of thousands, so I don't think Andisheh is in any position to gripe about Israel until he first tells the truth about US policy.

Re: “Atlanta's not a world-class city

If only Atlanta were more like the way I want it to be, and less the way it is, I would finally be truly happy.

Re: “First Slice 7/31/14: West Nile Virus found along Beltline, near other Atlanta parks

Yeah but the new location is crap and the secrecy of the deal smelled worse than crap. All three new stadiums are mired by poor planning and corruption.

Re: “Spring Street viaduct to close in September, prepare for chaos

Oh I know they can just take away a lane of Peachtree and make it pay to play like they did with 85. It's not like our tax dollars didn't already pay for it or anything like that. Why should people who can afford have to sit like the rest of us? :{

Re: “Atlanta's not a world-class city

@getaclue: honestly i never thought atlanta would be a city for tourists. but on a tuesday afternoon, i went for a walk through piedmont park and ran into tourists from NY who asked me where my favourite part of the park was. later, going down peachtree, i saw tourists who had rented golf carts to explore the city, a new trolley-bus company taking tourists around, etc.

it may be baffling to some, but we do have tourists, and they seem to enjoy our city a lot.

as for this article, it seems a bit rambling. i do agree that there is too much focus on individual projects that will "propel atlanta into being a world-class destination". it's quite silly. but i think if we zone land properly, work on our infrastructure and transit, atlanta's economy will help atlanta become a "world class" city. we just have to guide developers and investors into doing the right thing, and not approve major projects with bad plans because they are perceived as "game changers".
