You know what this city could do with $400+ million??? Hire more police, fix our crumbling sidewalks and streets, build new sidewalks and rebuild important streetscapes, bike lanes and paths, expand and maintain our park system, expand the streetcar system, etc... this is what makes a world class city! Not a football stadium!! What a waste - there is nothing wrong with the GA Dome.
What is with Southern Mayors? Why do they think new stadiums = world class status? It's the simple things that matter!
"His strongest support came from older voters, those without a college degree, the very conservative, strong Tea Party supporters, rural voters, white evangelical Christians"
Basically all dumbass people. Not surprising!
Of course the bill passed anyways. GOD I fucking hate this state. If the opportunity comes to transfer somewhere else with my job (like New York) I'm getting the hell out of here. GA politics depress me.
South Dekalb is not really getting screwed... they are getting an express bus line... they are just pissed because they aren't getting exactly what they wanted (a rail line), but the bus line can be converted later to a rail line... this list was a huge compromise for everyone. The NAACP needs to shut the fuck up.
If you think traffic and transit here is bad... wait until you move to LA!
I'm just stating the facts. This city will never change because of morons like drago and Joe who fail to see that pretty much 99.9% of violent crime in the city of Atlanta is committed by ghetto black people. This city has a ghetto image to most around the country... not exactly the best reputation!
And for the record, I didn't say black people shouldn't live here, I just said we don't need any more GHETTO ones. If you can't tell the difference I'm sorry for you.
WOW what a surprise!! A ghetto black person! Like Atlanta doesn't have enough of those!
