  •  I also live (0+ / 0-)

      Nor is Florida a prize pig. At least there is Atlanta v. Georgia in Georgia (and Savannah v. Georgia). Going from Emory to Florida would frighten me, personally; I'd head to Maryland, if I were rich, or North Carolina. Georgia was Jimmy Carter's state. The influx of corporate workers (not from the area, obviously, and loyal to money) changed the demographics.

      The state politics have always been bad (with periods of enlightenment) on race, but they were not always thus on everything else. That took Reagan and a major reorganization of money in the state from S. to N., with the military allegiance moving R at the same time.

        although lots of great people are working to overturn damage done by the GOP

        There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it. ~Author Unknown

        •  When Art Pope is Jesse Helms (0+ / 0-)

          All his people will lose. Jesse Helms
          1. Continually brought back the bacon
          2. Had fantastic constituent services
          3. Appealed to good old boy values.
          Art Pope, on the other hand, has nastiness, selfishness, and Ayn Rand. He promises to serve himself and hate the rest. The most we can say is that the current group is acting like drunken vandals because they know they have a limited time to set as many fires as they can.
