Present Seattleite. Former Atlanta. I care more for my former city than the rote weekend warrior suburbanites could ever pretend to. If you loved a…
Are you so used to antagonizing the CL "liberal elite" that you jumped the gun and ended up on flat on your own face?
Is that why you are nowhere to be seen after your own April Fools realization, you presumptuous indignant fool?
I loved Atlanta. It is suburbanites like you that piss on ATL, that would not even be where you are now in your own secluded cul-de-sac were it not for one large anchor city, guess which one.... ATLANTA, you fucktard!
@ Time for change "Big county government in Georgia is a dinosaur. It is ineffective and unresponsive to the citizens."
First it's big federal gov't, then it's big state gov't, now it's big county gov't... What's next for you, big neighborhood covenant government? Then what? Cul-de-sac- autonomy? Then what? Big cellular organization? I suppose you might as well regress into a pool of primordial goo. That appears to your only true avenue to freedom.
Of course, you've also got big GOD watching over you. You might want to divide that omnipotent (which must require a bureaucracy larger than you could ever possibly imagine) jurisdiction while you're at it.
It seems that people like you are floating along a perceivably barren sea, and all that you recognize is yourself. Perhaps that will be the last straw. Big self gov't. Maybe you will then split yourself in two upon a sharp rock, and then we will be without your (and other's) self-important redundancy and be equipped to progress as a species without your dead-weight.
One can only dream.
Hysteria is irrational in any situation, and no practical solutions can be achieved under these conditions regardless of the scenarios they surround.
On the same coin though, is it prudent to simply hem and haw while awaiting indisputable fact and carry on about one's day in a "business as usual" manner?
If anything, this is the direction the vast majority of the flock seems inclined to follow, is it not?
Complete with daily ferry trips to the offshore island cities of Savannah and Brunswick.
Environmental conspiracy theorists are attacking the American way!
Who are they to ask us to be good sewards of the earth?
I mean, the air is cleaner than it was 50 years ago! As a matter of fact, I make an example of this by doing all of my calisthenics and breathing exercises on the 17th street bridge during the morning gridlock.
Why should emissions be of any immediate concern to me? After all, I am not an asthmatic or a child.
Seriously, though. It looks to me that someone followed the fresh air right into their their own hindquarters.
Deny, deny, deny. One can't be held accountable for what is naively perceived not to exsist.
In 2006 Atlanta had 17 unhealthy days compared to 30 this year.
Cleaner you say? We surely do not breathe the same air.
This democrat is infuriated with the profit driven war machine and the hypocritcal values platform.
I am further distressed at the spineless congress that I voted for as a counterweight to the seemingly uncontested madness occuring at 'Dub and company's backslapping behest.
We need to refer back to our forefathers original framework for this country and recognized just how far we've deviated and just how trivial our priorities have become.
In fact, in the midst of wartime and escalating insurgency, didn't the issue of gay marriage/civil unions work up the values set into a braying tizzy?
Thank you though, for telling it like it is.
But is there an unwritten clause somewhere that it all has to be in the form of a $250,000+ loft or condo?
You too can enjoy the urban community-oriented fabric that your grandparents and their parents once enjoyed...
...Provide you can pay OUR cost for it.
Now THAT is priceless.
