Does anyone honestly believe using intelligent discussion and statements or reason will work to change the direction of gangs, drug addicts, rapists, child abusers, and bullies? –

You forgot Republicans, Democrats, congressmen, the president, community activists, talking heads, political commentators………

Well, if it wasn’t for “fair trade”, we would all be driving American made cars that were only good for maybe 100k miles. Prior to imports, cars in the US were built to fail – the failure was actually built into the vehicle. I say trade if nothing else forces manufactures of goods to think about quality and that’s good for the consumer. Now jobs are another thing. As long as US worker thinks they are entitled to make unrealistic wages, jobs will continue to go overseas.

You are “entitled” to Social Security, but, on average, retirees take a third more in Social Security benefits than what they put in – and even this assumes that what they put in was earning 2% above the inflation rate in interest. So, Social Security is getting something you didn’t earn for most.

OH MY GOODNESS!! I lived in the ATL for 55 years of my life. I moved and the whole city(and the vent)have found it’s way down the toilet. Saw the first ATL Braves and Falcons games both in Atlanta. I know that my moving away did not cause the city to flush but I am sad and glad to say I will not be moving back. I am so proud of ATL but guess she just too big for her britches.

The Republicans opened up China for trade with the U.S. Now they’re beating the pants off us and got our factories and jobs. The Chinese military is transforming from a backward one to a state of the art challenge to the U.S. Oh yeah, nothing like Free Trade!

Dear Glenn Beck below is a vent that shows just why what you have said over and over make people be unsympathic to our vets. They believe you and it is their truth even about the vets.

I hope the government knows, I am entitled, to my social security, that I worked for over 45 years for! Unlike illegal immigrants, freeloaders that are able bodied second and third generation welfare recipients!

You have to really appreciate the simplistic absolute believe of people who follow the Al Sharptons, Creflo Dollars, Pat Robertsons, Grahams, Crystal Cathedral folks,and all the others well known who make a really really big living off of people who generally live less well.

Hey social security poster. We all know that the money we put in was already spent. Admit it. We boomers spent it on ourselves and are now all collecting geezer welfare complements of the following generations.

If Prek helps till about the 3rd grade then we need to find out why and do something about it. I always contended that if you could not read on level at 4th grade you would never be able to make it in school. Let’ s find some program that have worked and use them.

The Cobb County Braves location will have but 81 dates a year and about 4 hours of congestion on those dates.
That leaves 284 days a year and NO games.
What’s the big concern.

“Black Lives Matter.” But that does not seem to be what young black males believe.
I guess all the other races, and the police, are the only ones that are supposed to believe that. Still, if you don’t care that you are diminishing your population and number of votes in elections, ignore it.

Free Pre-K is just a replacement for the Head Start program. Studies show that the students who attend Head Start perform as well as or better up to the 3rd grade. After that test scores, performance, and high school graduation rates are the same as those who didn’t attend. I’d support spending the money if it actually made a lasting difference, but it doesn’t. It’s just more politically correct for kids to attend Pre-K than a special programs for the poor.

If you are going to resort to name calling, then yes, it is stupid to burn down your own town. And the vast majority of the Democrats do not believe that is wise.
However, to use your word, you offer a stupid argument to counter the Democrats. If you want to sway people to your way of thinking, then use intelligent words, reasoning and thought. It works better.
