Re: “First Slice 8/29/14: Same-sex marriages in Georgia would contribute $80 million to state economy, says new study

Not that I care who gets married but the facts being presented from CL via AJC are not in keeping with the study:
1) It is "could" not "would inject nearly..."
2) The job range gain is from 329-988
3) Over 3 years

Re: “First Slice 8/26/14: Turner to offer buyouts to more than 500 employees; layoffs likely to follow

Well, when CNN edited the GZ audio tape, that was the end. It's not news, not even close. It's just a rallying cry for the mob.

The Far right wing as stereotyped in CL is a dying breed, yet FOX thrives.

I don't think Mark or WF are really connecting the dots.

Re: “First Slice 8/26/14: Turner to offer buyouts to more than 500 employees; layoffs likely to follow

--Television (as we have known it) languishes in a hospice
--Television journalism (as it existed before demise of the "fairness doctrine") died years ago
--Turner channels primarily air reruns of product from broadcast networks
--New York is a more vital media center than Atlanta, though Time Warner sold it's Columbus Circle headquarters earlier this summer

My prediction? Time Warner will sell off Cartoon Network, shutter CNN, HLN and all of the Turner brands, transfer a handful of staff to New York, and concentrate on HBO and the few remaining profitable imprints. I also see Georgia Tech getting a great deal on the Techwood campus and CNN Center becoming a flea market.

Expecting the CoA Government to be pro-active is akin to waiting for the second coming.

Re: “Fuqua's revised Lindbergh development: Walmart out, Kroger in

Yes, I just wish people like Art Blank and Fuqua would just leave Atlanta, and we could be a Mecca for all the homeless, single mothers, and any other repressed group....Then we could collaborate, be diverse, work together, and show compassion for one another without the influence of greed.....just like Detroit.

Re: “Fuqua's revised Lindbergh development: Walmart out, Kroger in

I can only wish that Fuqua would rudely and openly tell us regular Atlantans to go kick rocks.

Then maybe it would make us angry enough to force the Mayor and the City Council to scuttle these lousy anti-taxpayer deals like the Falcons Stadium and the 800 Glenwood development.

Egh, what's $80 mil when Gov. Deal can get so much more mileage out of wedge issues that serve only to generate hate.

Since hell is imaginary, it's not a concern for sensible people. Thnks.

Re: “Georgia Beer Wholesalers Association takes Governor Deal to breakfast, tweets about it

"...Governor Deal believes in small businesses, Georgia businesses, free markets, job creation, personal liberty, and economic development."

Hahaha, surely you jest. Nathan Deal believes in money and Nathan Deal.

I'm certainly against stupid laws preventing me from buying beer in any way, but I think that funding Deal is misguided and foolish; I understand that that is how bribes work and Deal is as corrupt as they come. But I think brewers and others that want a change in the policy would do a lot more for their cause by focusing their efforts in replacing the incumbents rather than operating within the backroom dealing, good ole boy system that exists. Spend money on better alternatives and mobilize your audience to vote. Don't make a deal with the devil, stand up for what you know is right and change the pay-to-play rules of the game.

Re: “Fuqua's revised Lindbergh development: Walmart out, Kroger in

"If I was Jeff Fuqua, I'd tell you all to kiss my ass, his land, his money, who the hell are you to tell people what they can do with their money and land!??"

That's a nice libertarian dream, Jvoice. When you wake up maybe you'll realize that in the real world we have zoning laws, review boards, urban design commissions and more that are part of the city's process.

Don't like it? You have the freedom to either move or else work harder to get a slew of property rights wingnuts elected to change the process.
