The stuck pig squeals the loudest!
Eff Earl Ehrhart! Using one county's tax dollars to bid away a team from a neighbor is really not what public officials are being paid for. What a jerk. His plan is to ease Cobbers' pain at being taken advantage of by their slimy pols by speaking out when they get their feelings hurt by us wicked in-towners.
Misprint for Smyrna IS A shithole.
Could FreshLoafers start a petition urging that City Council restore Utz's lost pay in next year's budget? Almost all of us here believe he should not be penalized for caring or for retaining a sense of humor under stress. (Doublephantom at 10.45: 30-0) Anyone who has never exhibited a flash of anger on finding out he/she has been led down the garden path is welcome to dissent.
*Christ, Lord sorry
Ohhhh he did a Jerky Boys prank on Facebook with Money Gram ...ooohh really awesome!
He also did a great job playing someone from the "trap" acting ignorant. Might as well dress up in black-face Ben.
Back in the 80's and 90's Belfort and Stratton Oakmont, and other big Penny Stock firms like Blinder Robinson (Blind em and Rob em), Rooney Pace, First Jersey Securities, Biltmore Securities, Sterling Foster) were recognized as the pariahs to Wall Street. Heck even the Georgia Legislature was in the vanguard in enacting legislation to go after these people (Max Cleland was Secretary of State at the time).
Sadly what we saw in the collapse of 2008 was tactics by the "blue blood" Wall Street Investment Houses that almost mimicked the out and out fraudulent acts of these Penny Stock firms.
The penny stock firms are largely out of business, Penny Stock scams still exist but now they are largely hyped and sold through the internet. Its a fairly common scam, buy garbage, create a demand with false statements and sell the garbage at a higher price. True Wall Street has done that, but Penny Stocks are a whole different level.
So I imagine the Wolf of Wall Street can't really deliver any insights into Wall Street but instead is a reminder that greed and thieves have long been around. And though I have not seen the movie yet, I imagine part of the fun of seeing it is the fact that much of it is real.
Choice is better. Let the brewers decide if they do better with distributors or not.
I know Mark I was being sarcastic. Poverty sucks.
Yall and yall bickering. I can't believe 3 people disliked that Metric song and then nobody liked it. Seriously people? Look yourself and the mirror and reevaluate please!
Crackers was actually the name of the long-time Atlanta minor league baseball franchise that played its games at Ponce Field 1901-1965.
I would imagine Utaz was making that alliterative reference.
Sadly I fear Vox does not - which speaks volumes.
Or perhaps he is running for political office and thus refuses to admit he made a mistake.
But you do see the difference in the word "shithole", which is simply prejorative and is not specifically directed toward a historically persecuted group of people, and "faggot" and "ape", which are, yes?
Yea Vox, read and understand what MikeInATL said. Hopefully you just didn't think that through in your attempt to say the anti OTP phrase is as bad ad when OTP people trash the City.
I mean Shitholes is so generic its obviously not even a stereotype of OTPers.
Anyway the appropriate analogy to Smyrna Shitholes would be more like.
1. Decatur Douchebags,
2. Fulton F*ckfaces,
3. Dekalb Dicks,
4. Sandy Springs Sluts
5. Buckhead Bitches
6. Atlanta Assholes
7 Peachtree Pedophiles
So if these terms were used by Gwinnett Officials if their Minor League baseball team left Gwinnett for these other places I think people would get the point. Well ok maybe Decatur Douchbags does hit a little close to home ...... Doh! just kidding my Decatur friends.
I haven't done a formal survey or anything but I'm guessing most of my gay/lesbian friends would rather have some random ignoramus call them a fag/dyke than told they live in a shithole.
(I could be wrong of course, either way all of it is in poor form)
Then read the rest, "shall not be infringed." Free people have the right, by virtue of their existence, to defend themselves. Small women that don't want to be assaulted should have access to the most effective rape deterrent available. Old people living in bad neighborhoods shouldn't have to depend on the police, whose job it is to prosecute criminals and investigate crimes, not act as security guards. At least that's how the Supreme Court views their role. None of this matters though because clearly gun control has no hope of gIni any traction in the foreseeable future :)
We have cars that can go 250 miles on an electric charge, rovers on mars, remote control killing machines all over the world, and a virtual encrypted currency purchasing designer drugs via the internet. If we seriously wanted to do something about gun violence we could.
Might I suggest these two technology related solutions:
Create highly effective less than lethal weapons. Then by law make it mandatory for all police forces, national guard and 'domestic military' to carry them instead of lethal weapons.
-This helps alleviate some of the concerns that everyone from the founding fathers to some present days gun owners have concerning the importance of power being in the hands of the people over the possible tyranny of government
Biometric/computerized trigger mechanisms mandated on all new gun purchases. It wouldn't be too difficult to make safety zones around schools, etc. to make the weapons inoperable. It would also make mass shootings, hostage situations etc. much easier to end.
Any such stolen weapon would be worthless to criminals as well.
-For those concerned that the govt could simply then disable all of then see point 1 above. Also keep in mind this is for all new weapons. Commit a crime with an old style weapon and mandatory min. 25 years. Old weapons would be maintained by their current owners and will eventually be valuable relics of an earlier age. (A fond memory I have was the first time my dad showed off the old hunting rifles passed down from his father and told me the story behind them. If anything the solution I'm suggesting would enhance such experiences).
that's true. i love capital letters.
i figured you needed all the help you can get, chief.
but seriously, do yourself a favor and gain some knowledge about the meaning of "well-regulated".
Caps, ad hominems, AND a link? You win, guy.
