DO IT! Keep blowing up Midtown. We're almost a real city.

Can we drop every last freaking developer into shark infested waters and leave them to their uglyRead More fates? what a super swell plan, because traffic on 14 Street isn't quite bad enough, cram even more cars into that area.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

Mark, Your words are absolutely disgusting. Please do not use this comment thread as a vehicle toRead More spew your racist mentality. And for your information, food-borne illnesses come from agriculture, period. All around the world, including in the U.S. Lastly, your hatred for people of colour does not mean that you understand disease, at all. Good luck in life.

What a misleading headline....top in growth is different than top on business! If we went from 1Read More woman owned business to 2 that would be 100% growth. Just sayin'. Lame, Patch, lame.

As a corporate pilot I have flown all over the northern hemisphere and Caribbean. Large sums ofRead More money were spent on hotels for our crews and passenger. Until recently I did not know about this travel site that will save up to 80% on hotel rooms all over the world. I feel that this is something everyone would like to know about. If you plan on traveling this site is worth looking at. http://roadvoyager.com

when the majority of Home Despots sales are derived from products made in american factories, onRead More american soil, made by americans, i might think kindly of every one of these corporate shills and conmen. until then, they ARE the problem, just as General Motors had factories in Nazi germany making war vehicles that helped kill american soldiers. split a company apart with some clever paperwork and then say its 'not ours' is a crime, and a despicable, fraudulent representation of life values. if these types want to 'give back' to america, they can start building factories, products and create jobs here, too bad they don't know a thing about the real world.

Why make things in America if you are forced to pay outrageous taxes or have to deal with a unionRead More that pushes for ridiculous wages for unskilled labor?
Forward.... March 20, 2014 at 04:03 pm
Unions got you a 40 hour work week, 2 weeks paid vacations, child labor laws and decent wages.Read More Unskilled labor are the CEO's of these major corporations, banks, hedge funds who get uninformed people like you to carry their water, and won't even give you a drink. The 10 most profitable corporations in this county pay less than 9% and over 2/3 don't pay federal corp. taxes what-so-ever. Some even get a refund with all of the loop holes. Union have been dismantled, that protected peoples right to fair wages. Corporations continue to profit billions of dollars, but the trickle doesn't happen, never has and won't while they have their puppets carrying their water as if one day, they're going to make you rich,rich,rich. And Harry, your Romney point about 47% of people don't pay taxes is so 2012! They don't pay federal income tax because they are the working poor and live in poverty.

How does a building make a city "24" hours? Atlanta used to be a 24 hour city before theRead More local government shut down all of the nightlife so condos could be built.
Kevin March 18, 2014 at 11:03 am
I already live in a 24-hour Atlanta. I have homeless people crap in my front yard all hours of theRead More day.
But wait, March 19, 2014 at 11:12 am
@Kevin hahahaha so true. I agree with everyone here in regards to making this a 24 hour city. Oh,Read More and look at that big, beautiful parking deck they cleverly tried to hide with trees... what is that, a 15 story deck!?

Reality, Buford Highway Farmer's Market has a nice selection f organic produce. Unlike the DekalbRead More Farmers Market it is all in one continuous organic section which I find easier to shop.
Reality March 15, 2014 at 09:06 am
Great Thanks. Just hoping for a closer intown venue.If I had time I would open one.I am baffled whenRead More I ask whole paycheck why they don't have more organic and yet they market themselves as such. They say not enough supply as not enough organic farmers. Seems like with all the unemployment and talk about jobs the gov should start organic farming vocational classes in many places in Georgia public schools. What a great opportunity to pursue if our government would support things of this nature for future generations. Would sure help the obesity issue and healthcare
Harry Ball March 15, 2014 at 03:32 pm
Good prices at Sprouts. On Wednesday they let their sales ads overlap so you get a lot of sale itemsRead More those days.

I'm not afraid to speak the truth either. Ted Turner is as crazy as a s---house rat.
David Brown March 9, 2014 at 04:41 pm
I wonder why someone, like Octo Slash, feels the need to go on Patch and post comments usingRead More vulgarity, even when it is disguised vulgarity?
Kenneth Stepp March 10, 2014 at 12:31 pm
This is a man that calls us peons "worthless eaters". I guess he should remind his healthRead More care workers how much better his "species" is than theirs.

JMichael, your points may be taken a little more seriously and you may find people more willing toRead More debate if you ditched the name calling. "DittoHeads", "ChristoClowns", etc.
Harry Ball March 7, 2014 at 01:50 pm
From Merriam-Webster debt noun \ˈdet\ : an amount of money that you owe to a person, bank,Read More company, etc. : the state of owing money to someone or something : the fact that you have been influenced or helped by someone or something The White House website proves that debt has DOUBLED under Obama and the Democrats watch. The Democrats controlled Senate and the House of Reps on January 3rd, 2007 so quit trying to blame Bush.
jMichael March 7, 2014 at 02:04 pm
Well, Jon. It is my understanding that "DittoHeads" is what Rush's followers callRead More themselves. I think I am correct here. [ ] As regards "ChristoClowns" .. there is no more apt expression for the Bachmannites of the GOP. They are a clownish embarrassment to Christianity, to the GOP, and to this Nation. I surely would not regard them as "Christian, nor would anyone else who walks the Path of Jesus. They merit no greater regard than did the Scribes and Pharisees [Matthew 23:...] "ChristoClowns" it is. And if the GOP manages to get its act together, these Preposterous Pretenders will be sent packing before they drag the party into a ditch too deep. 2014/2016 will tell the tale. [ ] i'll give you (and Harry) the last words. Thanks for your engagement with me. jMichael

I don't think the assisted living building will be altered anytime soon since they got that largeRead More remodeling grant a few years ago. I like it and think it adds character to the neighborhood.
MidtownGirl March 6, 2014 at 11:50 pm
Why don't they just close 10th street entirely and let Midtowners figure out another way to getRead More home? First it was one lane gone dedicated to right turns onto Peachtree. Then the bike lanes (bc painting a bike on the asphalt makes it so) and now 494 residents stopping up a lane to turn left by Blue Med Spa and skip the lights at Peachtree and Piedmont. No traffic impact on 11th street perhaps, but 10th will be a parking lot with very nice new sidewalks that everyone will use b/c they can't actually get to their homes in Midtown via car.
Terry Smith March 7, 2014 at 02:33 pm
Good luck to anyone foolish enough to believe developers will honor anything which doesn't notRead More benefit them totally.
