    Can't think of a better title for this story and way to describe these two. Nice job, Ben.

    Political nostalgia                                           At least we are all learning about some of our history and what politics was all about in the old south. One guy at the top with his hands in everything (this could be either Pace or Cathy) and minions in the Chamber or government jumping all over themselves to please the top guy. Used to be a banker or factory owner (ie Mr. Potter in Its a Wonderful Life) owning a company town, now its more subtle. Or you could make the case that movie making is creating a company town.
     
                                                                        Ah, the way we were. So uplifting.I love history. It just the same old thing over and over again. I hope when the rairoad comes back it has a stop at Pinewood. Maybe a water tower and a coal chute.

    Neil, those are students simply learning about the process.  Its the Fayetteville temporary zoning lady you have to be concerned about.  She is a hired hand to push the urban agenda.  The article makes it sound like the Vision Agenda at Sandy Creek High School.  Forcing everyone from table to table to push thier agenda.
    I really wish more people would take the time to go to these government meetings.  Myself included.  
     
    Just wait until the new year when the COC/Vision starts pushing the splost down our throats. I also heard last night that the BOC may be using money from the last splost to build the bridge over the road to connect Pinewood to the new development.  I plan to watch the last meeting to confirm this, but if it is true, I have a big problem since the road is still not complete, yet they want us to give them more money for new roads.

    Roadrunner one problem is that some like our two young friends want Buckhead/ Midtown while living at the high standard of Dad and Mom. Young Clara is listed as a Peachtree City resident but seemed active in the Fayetteville process. How many of the one hundred or so people lived in Fayetteville or even Fayette County? AVPRIDE is one of the groups tied into Fayette Agendaing cabal assuring us we need more "not for profits". Again glad to see the Arts Center no one wants is again high priority.

    I get the idea you're looking for a 50.1% Presidential Voting system? (If Im wrong STOP Reading)
    If we do that, and YOU want your Vote to matter at all, you'll need to leave Fayette Co;  Georgia even in Fact I'd be really surprised if you even heard who the candidates are here in Ga as NONE of them would spend a penny hear asking for your Vote. The other thing is IF we did switch over the FIRST thing that has to happen is ratifying a Constitutional Amendment, that would repeal Article 4 Section 4, then we're a Democracy, Majority Rules, remind me again how that worked out for the Indians and Black folk. and yup I think you're right if the results had been opposite we'd be hearing all kinds of crying from Rush Hannity and others, BUT History tells us Hillary would have been perfectly safe from assassination ,,,well from GOPers anyway Bernie folks or democrats no so much Might I remind you ALL of those Racist White People (including the Klan) NEVER took a shot at Obama in 8 YEARS...weird

    Hard to say, but there were armed militia groups threatening violence.  A Clinton EC victory might have prompted them to do something far worse than flag burining.

    Of course that's speculation.  My central point remains that we have a deep flaw in our system inherited from the eighteenth century and it needs to be changed.

    I'm always mystified that people search out a 'bedroom' community like Fayette County, Peachtree City, etc. and then set out hell bent to change it.  If you want end-to-end retail, business, and the tax base, traffic & crime that goes with it move to Hwy 41 in Cobb, Memorial Drive in Dekalb, Peachtree Road in Atlanta, on & on.  Why do people think that everything should be everywhere?  This is still a decent place to live BECAUSE all of that isn't here, yet.

    Thank you officers for getting this scum off our streets.  I also appreciate that we protect our canine officers as we do our human ones.  Some wouldn't agree with this thinking animals are beneath us, but these dogs know what they''re doing and put their life on the line just like any other officer.  Lastly, I 110% agree that Fayette needs to be the last choice of an easy target for these criminals, keep it in Clayton & Fultion where they still coddle their criminals.

    No sir.  Mass transit is not fiscally responsible.

    How many of Trump supporters would be rioting and burning flags under your scenario?

    One big difference..Obama won a majority of votes...twice.
     
    Just imagine for a minute that this election turned out differently, and Trump won a popular vote majority of well over two million votes, but Hillary won the electoral college.  I would bet my last dollar that most of the people on here saying "Trump won, get over it" would be screaming that Hillary has no legitimacy as President because the majority of Americans rejected her...if your honest you know you would.
     
    By definition, Hillary won the election.  Trump won the process...and that process seriously needs to be changed.

    and one of the Americas is the driver of business and income to our federal goverment.  I have NO problem with the results and the electoral college, but like the elite and in the country and their tax contirbution, New York and California carry a large percentage of that weight as well...

    President Barck Obama                                              It took quite some time to get used to saying that or even hear people say it about 8 years ago. It really grated on a lot of people. His great contribution in November/December 2006 was Valerie Jarrett's famous quote "We will be ready to rule in Jan" That's right - Rule! Not govern, but Rule! Valerie was probably his only appointment by this date in 2006, although the fix was certainly in on Hillary being Sec of State long before during the primary.
     
                                                                                        And I seriously doubt Trump is going to do anything to disrupt the average Democrat citizen or his/her lifestyle compared to what Obama did to the average Republican and Independent citizen - and some Democrats too. Think about it. How did that 8 years improve your staus in life? Lose a job? Lose a house? Earn less, save less, work 3 jobs? What's Trump going to do to the Dems? Take away the big screen? Create a job? 
     
                                                                                           Trump is out there doing what he said he was going to do by appointing some of the best and brightest to his team and he seems unafraid to pass over those entitled Republicans like Gingrich, Romney, Christie and Guliani while somehow keeping them on his side - so far. Best the Dems can do is complain about too many Marines. My God. Get a life and let me live mine which might last a while with the Marines in charge. And when we hear more crap from Dems, do a person by person comparison on Trump's picks vs. Obama's "best and brightest".

    The curbs did not come in play with the utility work. And I got my info from the city. I see/hear the box trucks and semis plus you can clearly see the tracks when they bust a curb.  I have suggested putting large lansdscaping boulders at the corners. See who plows through that...

    Freddie, you're so right. The liberals should follow that fine example of respect and comity provided by all your brothers when that black guy won. That would demonstrate true maturity.

    An average of right at $266.00, , based on my interactions with the City Staff, well worth it.  Merry Christmas.

    I wonder how many employees were asked to leave or were fired over the years when budgets or schedules were not met?  I'm guessing not many.

    The issue is whether or not the current trends will be relevant in 20 years, or will we be tearing those down because it doesn't work in our situations.    We are unique.  A bedroom community with no direct access to an Interstate and not enough high end jobs.  Until we do something about both, we are kidding ourselves.
     
    Atlanta tore down all of their affordable housing to build high end.  Why we are going in the opposite direction seems silly.

    Two Americas would have 2 Presidents                                         So now today the NE/NY/California Blue America would easily have Bernie Sanders and the rest of the big red blanket that covers 99% of the rest of the states would have Trump. I'm assuming we relocate the Minnesota/ Wisconsin libs to one of the coasts and give their area back to the Native Americans - seems like the least we can do. Of course in 4 years the blue states might elect Jerry Brown or that Werner fellow who now goes by DiBlasio as their President and it could even get worse than that.
     
                                                                                                          If each of the America's were responsible for their own revenue production through taxes, you would either see a rapid change in business (and farmer and fishing) regulation in the blue coastal areas or you would see a huge population shift from those areas. The red states need to have a quota system so only a small number of libs can infiltrate each state yearly - after all, we want to take care of them because we are so compassionate, but we don't want them in charge of us - no way. Give them sanctuary, but no voting rights for 10 years. They will grow out of their childish liberal ideas by then.Those on welfare will convert to being taxpayers with actual jobs. Win/win.

    The criminal element needs to know that FC is not friendly to them. How many folks are in our jail from Clayton and Fulton, I bet more than from Fayette.
