JF, we have a very important election 3 weeks from tomorrow. How can we get all the people who turned out for the presidential election (I think other federal positions don't matter to people as much, hence the poor midterm turnout) to vote then?
As of the 2010 census, council district 1, where this property lies, was roughly 65% black.
I've only watched the first video. If it is from the 80s, it is just barely - probably 89. IBM Tower (now called One Atlantic Center) was finished in 87. I think they showed a MARTA train leaving the airport. That station was opened in June of 88 (painful memories of having to get the bus from Lakewood/Ft. McPherson before then). Also shows 191 Peachtree Tower being built and that was completed in 1990. No BofA Tower or SunTrust Plaza, both 1992.
Amazing since judging from the cars I would have guessed mid 80s.
Sharky's Machine - nice. Don't they show Underground in its original incarnation in that? Now that's historical gold.
"So IBM is kicking folks off their insurance plans so they can get insurance on the health exchanges and that is somehow Obamacares' fault? "
I assumed that's how this got passed. US companies are tired of footing the bill for something their global counterparts don't have to. Plus insurance companies get more people on the books.
It marked the first time that a traditionally white Greek-letter fraternity on campus admitted an African-American.
This should be changed to add in recent times or in current institutional memory or something of that nature.
It is definitely not true.
'Fuqua tells CL that his company plans on moving forward with the development until they're told otherwise. In addition, he thinks Council's vote isn't reflective of the city's usual position on development and that the project got caught in the middle of elected officials trying to make a statement in an election year.'
Yes. What a sad day when elected officials 'pander' to the people who elected them instead of the people who line their pockets. Note to self, do all business in non election years. Those pesky constituents ruin everything.
There's a clause in the GA constitution that is a vital safeguard against taxpayer dollars being given away based on favoritism or political connections? Sounds good. When does this take effect?
