Where will obama fine $47 million for street cars in Atlanta? He can't even pay back our SS checks to the people that paid in their SS money to the government. obama has proven to be a poor economist, and doesn't handle our money well. His leadership has been found lacking.

What happens when the democrats and liberals spend all of our money, and there is none left?

Spelling, capitalization and punctuation errors. AND, you forgot to use the word fatuous! You're gettin' old, racist hillbilly.

You're being a bigoted racist yourself. Chasing this guy down so often also makes you seem like a mental case of some sort. Continually calling him a hillbilly makes your own prejudices VERY obvious. If you hate someone for just being white, you're probably a racist. Thanks for keeping the dream alive.

They have, that's why obama is borrowing from China now, and obama is afraid if the debt limit is not raised he can't use our tax money to buy any more votes.

There are a variety of reasons to dislike lighterednut
1. He writes like a snob. I hate snobs.
2. He demands backup facts but rarely supplies them himself. It's easy to hate that.
3. He lies, all the time. There is nothing he hasn't done or experienced. I hate liars.
4. He's a racist. I hate racists.
I was just stopping by the Atlanta Topix one day and was struck by lighterednuts posts. I couldn't believe such backward, twisted uneducated racist people still existed. I decided to harass him a little. I can't imagine why anyone would defend the old piece of garbage.
BTW: Hillbillies come in all colors.
BTW: Hillbillies come in a colors.

Regardless, the first one who pulled the race card here so far is YOU. Being critical of the president is not racism, it's pure Americanism!

Sorry. This has nothing to do with the President.
Every subject the nut brings up, every comment is always focused on race. I have never played a race card. Ever. Hillbilly is a term for a type of people not a race.
Don't lower yourself to defending this racist, snotty, sad piece of old junk. The guy's a pig.

Sorry, couldn't resist, do you think it is wise to spend 47 million dollars for a 2.6 mile streetcar route, on one of the busiest streets in Atlanta? The transit system we have now, subsidized by so many, utilized by so few, runs at a loss. I'd like to see the numbers of the cost to operate on a per ride basis.

But, won't you now be labeled as a "racist" as well for revealing this?

When called a liar and an idiot, I tend to respond in kind. Don't like it, don't care.

Talk about evolving. Most people on this site are Klansters from the 50's. Deal with it, you live there...

The klansters from the 50s are all dead now. You're hating ghosts and punishing modern whites for their deeds. Time to move into the modern world.
