Skip to comments.Atlanta's Problem with White Stuff
Posted on 01/31/2014 12:42:15 AM PST by chessplayer
The ice storm that shut down Atlanta this week was a "fiasco" that was "manmade from start to finish," according to Atlanta Magazine's Rebecca Burns, writing for Politico. But we have to note that, in part, the men who made the fiasco were white ones.

Has it been called a chocolate city yet?
Maybe they want a nearby volcano instead. Then they can get ash of various dark colors erupted onto the streets, if not hot lava (which turns black when it cools).
It is sad what is happening to Atlanta. My parents came from there in the 30s. Many do not know that Atlanta, the city, is quite small, less then 500,000. It is landlocked by incorporated towns. The city, of course, is now run by Obots.
Yep. Everybody basically lives in the surrounding suburbs, while the actual city itself is small.
Atlanta was destroyed like every other major US city has or will be by Dem policies starting with the CRA.
From the no income, nothing, just anything is fine NINJA loans mandated by the DEMS who controlled both houses during the last 4 years of Bush, the above will tell the truth.
Now, once again we have the DEMS running bills up that we cannot pay, our kids cannot, and; and it is for the very same people who according to Obama- now deserve -”INCOME EQUALITY.”
We just saw what these folks did to the homes they had no means to buy, had no idea how they’d pay for the place, so; now Obama wants us to give them more.
This GIVE IS GETTING DAMN OLD. Obozzocare is one gives insurance to another and he/she pays as Obama says you owe your brother. Obama has never worked a damn day in his life. We cannot afford anymore idiots like him. AA created mandatory graduation and promotion. I saw it in 1970-72 and it is worse now. Let’s go back to -”you get what you earn.”
Lots of blame really to go around. Bad Southern Drivers, lack of equipment and too many people trying to leave at the same times...
growing up in a cold climate i have NEVER seen so little snow cause SO much travel problems...
Not to worry. In a city, the longer the snow stays around, the closer to black it becomes.
I like your term ‘Obots’. So true when you think about it. Supporters of Obamma are indeed ‘Obots’. Their support of Obamma is automatic indeed, just like a robot. Obamma can do no wrong.
” Supporters of Obamma are indeed Obots”
Yes, and the USA is now an Obamination. It will take a miracle to save the nation.
I was not into and am not into bit coins.
The part that is old is we have not learned is that folks have to want help and have to want to make the friggin effort themselves. This poor Joe or Sue needs a free house, EBT, plus this and that and 99 weeks of unemployment is not enough is BS. No more handouts/free ride.
It paralyzed the city for nearly a week, the roads were closed, and much of the city was without electricity. A miserable time was had by many.
But, no wimpering, no second-guesssing, no tales of woe.
Not so fast on that one. The stuff turned to ice very quickly. The semis jacknifing and getting stuck on all of the interstates (whose drivers presumably came from all over) were a large part of the problem.
After many years in Minnesota, I moved to Des Moines. The ice is much worse and clearing the roads of snow and ice is lackadaisical at best in urban/suburban Des Moines. And of course, office-job commuters in their 4WD pickups and SUVs won’t slow down, so four wheels slide around instead of just two.
I was at FT Benning,GA in Jan 73 going through the IOAC. My first wife, a very capable RN, drove through the 20” of snow to get me to Martin Army Hospital. That was normal driving for us as I was from NY. She was from Omaha, NE.I do not recall people in a panic then.
I'm not black, I'm not gay
I live in Atlanta anyway
I would blame the forecasters who were predicting early on that this system would cover a narrow swath to the south and miss Atlanta completely.
while I agree with all that.. sorry i saw SO MANY HORRIBLE drivers with Ga plates Tue, many many many stupid decisions or actions by the drivers themselves that made it that much worse...
I agree the truckers really screwed up a LOT of traffic... especially on CCP just before i20.
