    I object to calling the esteemed elected CEO of one of our states most populous counties “Vernon ‘Fire All The White People’ Jones”.

    We’ve had about 5 elections/polls on the subject, and he will heretofor be known as “Vernon ‘Snuggles/Sexual Chocolate’ Jones”.

    Grady has both real problems and manufactured ones. The clowns on the board have been compounding the real ones with manufactured ones for years. For once, it actually isn’t about race.

    DPG, your leading candidate for guvna is blatantly race baiting as publicly as possible. Is anyone going to call him out, or do you blindly close your eyes?

    It will be at least 20 yrs. before GA Dem’s give GA Repub’s any challenge for the house, senate or guvna-ship.

    I was a victim of a hate crime at Grady. When I was born there 23 years ago, the doctor smacked my butt and I’m pretty sure it was because I’m black.

    This is how Bull Moose oversteps his authority when campaigning? Defecation?

    His campaign is doomed.

    At least he could have called for Speaker Hastert to resign while running for county commissioner like John Eaves did.

    As for words… activist Beasley, a man of many words if not much else, declares “It won’t be very long until the mayor’s office will be occupied by a non-African American,” he warned in a letter to a black Atlanta city council member, “as well as a majority of the City Council …”

    Guess the next step here is to start yapping about too many voters moving into the city now bringing way too many of their tax dollars.

    Gawd, who gives these people a mic and a quote? Can’t they just shut-up and blog like the rest of us?

    I actually remember about 10 years ago a “major” protest rally (because there are no minor protests) in Kirkwood, where “neighborhood activists” were complaining that too many people were moving into the area and fixing up the houses. It had to stop, because these people were doing such a good job, that poor people weren’t able to live there anymore.

    This was covered in all seriousness by all local TV outlets.

    Maybe they wanted a government subsidy to buy up the extra homes and let them remain dilapidated? You know, to keep that “just like home” feel? Perhaps the city can amend the Land Use Code to require a certain percentage of authentic distressed properties to remain in these historic neighborhoods?
