I’ve had the “pleasure” of dealing with the alleged Freaknik promoter. In fact, he is a low level drug dealer whose main promotional draw is young men in white tees and dreds. (this is the standard go-to dress for street level dealers). He frequently clamps on to other people’s parties, and does bring folk, but they are always hard street folk, not college kids from Moorhouse. He just thought it would be cute to steal the name. I made a call to my friend at the Atrium. The rest, as you see, is history. Not that I had anything to… Read more »

Lessons learned from Claxton: too good. I have great admiration for those that care for their communities by challenging the self-serving and sadness for the scars it takes on those of lessening numbers.

This would make perfect sense. Southern Co. should buy unfinished Bellefonte Nuclear Plant……..Instead of spending $99 million studying the suitability of a new nuclear plant site in southwest Georgia they could probably get the Bellefonte site for $40 million.

“Gloom, despair, and agony on me” Took a while for me to recall that show.

Emory as part of Atlanta should be quite interesting because currently Emory does not touch Atlanta. Either Emory buys property to connect it to Atlanta or they get other communities that border Atlanta and Emory to join the annexation.

Hillary is now saying that the right’s “radical fringe” has taken over the Republican Party. Funny accusation, since she has seen the left’s radical fringe take over the Democratic Party several years ago.

“Voices of moderation have been drowned out.”

There’s a mountain of Bernie Bros that would disagree with you on that one, partner. Clinton and Kaine are left-of-center Democrats. They are (a pair of) the voices of moderation in the Democratic Party. If the radical fringe of the party was making decisions, Sanders would be the nominee.

Yep, too far left of center Dems for moderate voters. The primary caused Hillary to move farther to the left in response to folks feeling the Bern. Her political positions are not the same as they used to be; a look at the platform on which she’s running makes that clear. And I can’t figure out how Kaine rationalizes all that. Political ambition does strange things to people.

Hillary as the radical fringe would remove the cause of existence of the radical fringe.

Never associated moderation with Trump. How do you figure that?

I didn’t figure that — I’m just sayin’…. Some of the people who support the Trumpster may be doing so because they are looking for someone new instead of the same old political machine of both the far-left and the far-right.

Supporting Trump because he’s “someone new” is like shooting yourself in the face to treat a headache because the bullet represented a different approach from the same-old Advil.
