Re: “Atlanta starts designing program that could send some low-level offenders to services rather than jail

The courts won't want to plea down to this program because they make so much money from people on probation.

Voxpopuli, did you misspeak? Vogtle nuclear plant construction has COST customers plenty (with nothing to show) but HOO BOY did you see Georgia Power's profits?? http://www.nonukesyall.org/Vogtle.html Kudos to Bubba for trying to tip the scales towards the people he is elected to serve.

Re: “Goat Farm Economics

As former Goat Farm property owner Robert Haywood's nephew and former temporary employee prior to the Goat Farm purchase from the Robert Haywood family , I feel compelled to note that Uncle Robert was a Mississippi native, not Wisconsin, and he knew very well the reproductive tendencies of the goats at Murray Mill, having learned that and many other "skills" during his Mississippi upbringing. The goats arrived after too many (to him and the City judge) lost code enforcement battles before the City of Atlanta courts over high vegetation, including out-of-control kudzu.

I didn't see where the homeless people section was in these exciting plans.. It's nice to see Atlanta take an interest in helping out this ignored population.

Re: “State regulators OK Georgia Power plan for more solar and nuke energy as utility edges away from coal

Georgia Power must provide two basic types of generation: base load and peaking. Base load supplies the part of the load that is present at all times, and peaking supplies the difference between the actual load at any time and the base load.
At power plant scale, base load can be supplied by fossil fuel (coal, oil, natural gas) or nuclear fuel; it cannot be supplied by hydro, wind, photovoltaic or tidal. Political pressure is away from fossil fuel and toward nuclear fuel with its unsolved, long term waste handling problem. Politicians being politicians, they declare victory and kick the problem down the road for someone else to solve.

Re: “State regulators OK Georgia Power plan for more solar and nuke energy as utility edges away from coal

Because the current nuclear plant construction has been such a windfall for its customers I can see why discussion of another one soon thereafter is in the works.
GA Power pretty much owns most of the state's politicians doesn't it?

Ga Power is getting customers to pay $100 million for a study? That's outrageous.

Re: “Meet Jill Stein. She’s unlikely to become the next president.

I like Trumps response about finding hoping Russia finds the other 30K emails....Trump reminds me of my crazy grandfather, he was a cantankerous drunk did not have a filter, but as crazy as shit sounded, his bullshit turned out to be a lot truer that I ever could have imagined.

I will say this, anyone who thinks for one second that Isis is not doing everything in their power to get a nuke (and I would not be surprised if they already had one) with plans to take out an American city is fooling themselves, so choose wisely.

Re: “Meet Jill Stein. She’s unlikely to become the next president.

The Russian espionage angle is a red scare tactic floated by the Clinton team and picked up by the usual mouthpieces, in order to blame the messenger and divert attention from the DNC misdeed.
I'm no Trump fan but anyone who believes the Clinton campaign does not manipulate facts is easily duped.

Re: “Atlanta starts designing program that could send some low-level offenders to services rather than jail

Isn't the Atlanta area crime due mostly to people with multiple felonies and other repeat offenders being back on the street after a relatively light sentence?
It seems like a great idea to not jail anyone with a non-violent offense and no prior felonies, but if you've already been arrested for a violent crime in the past then you should not be eligible for this program and the sentences should be harsher. (I don't see the guidelines on here). You also shouldn't be able to plea down to this program or it will be abused.

I'm still waiting for the first mayoral candidate to state that marijuana arrests will no longer be a law enforcement priority, but it hasn't been forthcoming.

Re: “First Slice 7/28/16: 'Don't boo. Vote.' Best Democratic campaign slogan ever?

Mosby had a weak case to begin and tried to start a stampede with inflammatory rhetoric, but the sensible judge said no. She let her mouth overload what her brain could produce.

I've never seen a Green Party candidate be a drooling tool of the GOP before!

Does't that qualify as change?

Re: “Meet Jill Stein. She’s unlikely to become the next president.

Well well well, absolutely shocking that Jill Stein would eventually align herself with Trump in defense of Russian espionage. I've never seen a Green Party candidate be a drooling tool of the GOP before!
