Stutter much? Well, now that you've established you are both, you can be assured I am neither. Carry on if you wish, I need to go find a toothpick to clean my left pinkie with.
Love the PTC police. But you don't get it Dar. They won one category under the 51-100 force. If you have ever been to a govt award ceremony, it's like giving out participation trophies for the 7 yr olds. Or winning best gym in Lexington Circle.
Come again? I'm white. You're white. Where's the racsim?

Newsboy, thank you and your apology is accepted.
APOLOGIES ROLLING STONE ... your posts on this subject are indeed logical, constructive and "vitriole free." Sorry for lumping you in with the hapless "handful" ...
Noosboy, you call me "ignorant white people". My, my. Let the racists begin.
ok newsboy, here's your chance to excel: Kindly tell me what part of any posting of mine would lead you to label me as "pathetically misguided"--be specific now--generalities not accepted.
Hey Rolling Stone,
I do believe Newsboy owes an apology.
Please share your insight on how my posts included "vitrole, bitterness and hatred" and where I claimed to speak for anyone other than rolling stone of the tan man clan.
And again ALL YOU HAVE IS INSULTS AND ASSUMPTION
Want to talk about Pathetic
? YOU with your claim
"now has black deacons" Really? and I bet you have Black Friends too; PROGRESS is Having FRIENDS and DEACONS without worrying or having to announce their skin color Something YOU HAVE FAILED MISERABLY TO DO (and the NAACP and 5th District) You do know the danger of YOU thinking you know something about something when ALL you use is Assumptions,,,, What color am I ? What Race is my Wife? Are you aware the (county wide at large elected) President of the Fayette County Republican is a Black Man ? ya see again Skin Color does NOT preclude an automatic thinking set, Amazing how that happens when bigots such as yourself get out of the way
THANKS WEB-GUY for calling these people out. You are absolutely right: The "vitrole, bitterness and hatred" spewed on these pages is from a HANDFUL of ignorant white people threatened by the growing diversty of Fayette County and absolutely DOES NOT represent the majority of Fayette County.
In the past week, 21 users have posted comments to news stories on the Citizen web site. Fifteen of those (including yourself) contributed to the District 5 / NAACP story. Of the 53 comments posted as of Saturday, 11 were made by Ginga1414, 11 were made by JessieJames1847, 7 were made by Mudcat, 5 were made by AtHomeGym, and 4 each were made by MoeLarryCurly and Rolling Stone. THAT'S 42 POSTS (80%) BY SIX PEOPLE ... SIX PATHETICALLY MISGUIDED PEOPLE ARGUING TO NOBDOY BUT THEMSELVES, WHILE CLAIMING TO SPEAK FOR THE 112,000-PLUS CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTY!
And like you, I marvel at the warm embrace I see from many longtime Fayette Countians toward their new neighors -- especially in our churches. One Sunday last month, a black family of 5 -- husband, wife, father, aunt and nephew -- were baptized together during a monring serving at First Baptist Fayetteville. As the last one came out of the water, the entire congregation rose to its feet in a spontaneous standing ovation, many in tears.This, in a church that 15 years ago had not ONE black member, and now has BLACK DEACONS and diverse congregation of internaitonal members form all walks of life And yet, one black man on the county commission is going to lead us all into ruin. Could there possibly be ANYTHING more ridiculous and absurd -- and yes, RACIST?!
NO...THEY GET AN AWARD FOR DOING THEIR BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE! You are simply missing the point.
Someone tell me I just did not read there is going to be more retail built within Everton as you go north to Cresswind. The city website never lies, does it? Oh my gosh golly.
Bank of Georgia Looks like Nancy's old employer Bank of Georgia has been taken over by the Feds. Not that Nancy has anything to do with it - but I had to post somewhere, I don't know how to create a new one on my on.
Fidelity Bank signs are up on the outside, 30+ cars in the parking lot all day today and a tiny article in the AJC. $23million shortfall that the Feds funded and it is my guess that they are going to try to get some of that back. The depositors are covered and safe thanks to FDIC, the directors and stockholders are not. They lose their initial investment, all their stock's paper value and may have to kick in to repay the $23million. Not sure how many of the old crowd is left on the Board of Directors, but those that fled are probably taking a big sigh of relief.
As I recall, this was the bank founded by all the PCDC guys and some homebuilders and others to stimulate the growth of Fayette County. Why that didn't crash in 2007 or 2008 is a mystery to me.
Hope all the employees are covered and get retained by Fidelity.
I would venture to guess, based on how quickly the SO got there after the alarm, someone had been in the house previously.
Thanks web-guy I do have logic on my side and it was instilled in me by my father. We were encouraged at a very young age to share our thoughts around the dinner table (a few years before families abandoned the dinner table). As the youngest of 3 I was able to learn a lot from my 2 older brothers as they tried to be logical (in their teens) with my father - full time teacher, part time farmer. Reading 3 newspapers a day and watching Cronkite and others on TV, my father was well informed, opinionated and prepared for any debate. Or any disagreement with his views.
And the important thing is that his views and opinions were not spoon fed to him by a political party, Cronkite or James Reston or even Jack Anderson. He had his own opinions and positions and openly debated the Kennedy worshiping neighbors and much as he did the McCarthy zombie-like followers and of course the war in Viet Nam.
Two sides to every story? No, he could come up with 3 or 4 sides to any story, could argue any of the sides (as he did sometimes for for hours - yes alcohol was sometimes involved) and then bring all the sides together with his own and unique opinion. Obviously neither he or Jesus could not do that today with all the entrenched idealogical fools and their exposure on the 24/7 TV crap that we must endure, but he did teach me logic. God rest his soul.
Thanks for noticing.
..responded to an alarm call..
Well, so much for alarm systems. Maybe the home owner had a video security system.
Web-Guy, So what you are saying is YES there is a Price you WILL sell you soul. What a Pity, far too many people do have that price, Am I worried they CALLED us Racist? nope, but here's the dirty little FACT, It's not that we were CALLED Racist we have been TREATED as if we were racist and then to top that off, some of us (Oddo and his flock) are willing to ACCEPT (not being called )but BEING LABELED RACIST by surrendering
So yeah Web Guy, sometimes ya have to go all in,,,
Race based voting districts...
Regardless on how everyone "feels" it is the established legal remedy and is based on previous and lofty court rulings. To think Fayette County will prevail and have these cases overturned is not realistic.
Honestly, I don't like race based voting districts either as I believe it further entrenches racism but at the end of the day there is not much I can do about it.
Oh, if you don't like the current lines of the 5th district just wait.
ginga, 'twas nothing. However, I had no luck finding the total number of registered voters in Fayetteville. I am sure I just didn't look hard enough. This dismal weather is clouding my brain, too, I think.
moe, thank you so much for posting these figures. I really don't know what it will take to get people to the polls. I personally called just a few less than 1,000 voters in District 5. My whole spiel was "PLEASE go vote!!"
RS, SB, & Openness
iF SB truly believes in that transparency he incessently squawks about,he would reveal just who is contacting him about a possible lawsuit settlement and exactly what they are saying. I don't believe that Judge Batten was presented ANY evidence that FayCO elections were tainrted by race or results driven or caused by At-Large-Voting and the only solution was to mandate reverse racial prejudice by forcing some residents into a different district-- based solely on skin color-- when they were content citizens to begin with. Just where does "Liberty and Justice for All" fit into THAT scenario?/

15,000 registered voters in District 5. Out of those, 12,732 registered voters did NOT vote in their new district's first election. How many of those who did not vote just threw their hands up and said just let him have it. It's only one district, one commission seat.
Well, now another NAACP member has come in to challenge in the Fayetteville mayoral race. Not just any old NAACP member, but the 1st Vice Chair of the NAACP. So, I wonder, will the Fayetteville voters just throw their hands up and say just let him have it? We're only one little city, one mayor. Who cares? Who REALLY cares?
Know how many voted for the current Mayor Clifton in 2011? 716 voters. Know how many voted for this NAACP challenger for mayor when he ran for city council in 2011? 743.
