Let's hope that their political action plan doesn't come to fruition.

I am offended by your racist comments, I am tired of bigots like you always talking down on the black churches. Your white churches are no better or no different than our churches. I guess white makes it right. God loves everybody not just the whites. Political action plan? What is your plan? You think just because Lane Price is white, she gonna be any better than Lorenzo Heard? You make me sick.

Need I remind you that it was LORENZO HEARD himself who said he did not choose to run during the primary election because " HE DID NOT WANT TO SPLIT THE BLACK VOTE". Before you start calling someone a racist, you better look at your own candidate. I think Lane Price is better than Heard because her motives for running was IMPROVEMENT. Not to keep a black controlled board in power. You sir, are a pot calling a kettle black....

Brother_Love, you need to change your name. Love does not say it for you. You are just a sore loser. There are none so blind as the racist blacks in Albany. Need I name. Last election too when the sheriff had a black woman and a black man, wanted woman to bow out. That was racist twice, one again the whites and also a woman. Both lost to the white.

Brother, I was kinda with you until you mentioned Dr. Lane Price. Black churches certainly are no worse than the white churches. 100% true IMO. Comparing Rev. Heard's qualification to Dr. Price's is a dead end street. She is an exceptionally capable individual who will bring a clear agenda to the board of education to say nothing of her strengths of personal character, academic achievement, professional performance and teaching experience. Rev. Heard is a selfserving charlatan that has no intention and no capacity for helping students and families. The blind do not lead the blind!

Is this legal and still have a non profit status? They better take this slow and seek counsel outside of Albany. They may just paint themselves in a corner.

Maybe by next time voting will be discarded in favor of less expensive federal appointments. It would be much more efficient. It would save trees by reducing newsprint. It would stop the rise of oceans by eliminating driving to vote. Oh, and think of the children.

This whole situation is in dire need of an IRS Audit, a State Audit and an Audit by the Grant providing programs to assure proper use of funds,

......the essence of the idea explored in "Atlas Shrugged".

0

FryarTuk 1 year, 5 months ago

The essence of "Atlas Shrugged" is minimally instructive fiction.

Sister_Ruby 1 year, 5 months ago

The genesis of the book was Ayn Rand examining what was going on the the USA in the early 20th century from the perspective of a Russian immigrant and seeing the same trends that she saw in Russia during the Socialist takeover. Then she asked herself "What would it be like if all the producers, manufacturers, entrepreneurs, and people of genius just quit, walked away, and stopped producing?" In essence what if the "do-ers" went on strike? What would happen? In fact, Rand originally wanted to name the book "The Strike". Did you know all that FT? Or are you just happy being a smart-A$$?

FryarTuk 1 year, 5 months ago

Sister, are you just quoting a book review or Cliff Notes or have you read the book and other Ayn Rand works? Atlas as did most of Rand's works weaved a philosophical thesis which she dubbed Objectivism. Objectivism being a method by which the mind of an individual connects with the absolutes of metaphysical reality (as she defined it). She used the characters of John Galt, Dagny Taggart and others to propose a hyper-image of statism vs individual achievement/reason etc. to make exaggerated points. It's good material for a high school or freshman college colloquy but it's not anything to hang your philosophical hat on. And certainly not sufficiently compelling to elect a president. It reminds me of the republican pollsters and Turd Blossom Rove, overstated, over financed and wrong.

I've never read a Cliffs Notes in my life (don't forget the "s"). Atlas Shrugged is a book about some interesting ideas, some with which I agree and some I don't. But the scenarios presented and the reactions of the 'Makers and the Takers" read just like today's news.

Point well made and taken. I get concerned about the Randian emphasis politically. Particularly whenit gets embedded in a presidential campaign and it isn't really understood by the pseudo apologists claiming undiluted admiration for Ayn Rand's philosophy.

The 5-year plan to takeover (oops I mean renovate) west central albany in falling into place. Lane Price will vote in favor of making Albany High a private (oops i mean public charter) school. Now, the Albany Housing Authority is kicking out (oops I mean temporarily relocating) the residents of McIntosh Homes (who naively believe that they will move back in once the renovation is complete).

One of these days, African Americans will wake up in Albany and realize that racism is no longer masked by white sheets...but is much more sly and sophisticated.

All of sudden, whites who desserted the DOCO school system and for the most part left Albany to live in Lee County....NOW they are DEEPLY concerned about the plight of poor blacks and their children...GIVE ME A BREAK. Its all about money! And enticing whites to move back to Albany...but first they need an upscale neighborhood and a FREE private (oops I mean public charter) school to offer.

But as long as blacks continue to fall for this trick and really believe that whites in Albany are going to rescue their schools and neighborhoods....they are always going to be played for the fool.

One of these days, blacks will sit down and plan out another 5-year plan....and hopefully that one will have the best interest of everyone....not just one segment...and then Albany can join other American cities and truly move FOWARD....

We are one.

The most malignant racism in Albany is internecine - black on black: criminal, ecclesiastical, political as prominently manifest in the school system.

And here is the riddle for your rant: In your proposed 5 year plan to "truly move FORWARD" - how are you going to do that without money.

Sounds like the song "March of the Lemmings" that those cute little fuzzballs sing on the way to the cliff's edge......

The Lemming Condition tells the story of a community of arctic rodents who blindly follow tradition, culture and peer pressure on a suicidal march over a cliff and into the sea.

Well they have plenty of time to map out their strategy. I guess Heard won't try it again unless they figure to get him on the ballot this time. I don't think it would have made much of a difference if they had him on the ballot this last election. He might have gotten a few extra votes, but not significant.

0

Sister_Ruby 1 year, 5 months ago

Obviously no way Heard would have won. The ENTIRE community came together on this choice except for a few die hard racists.

Typical comments from brotherly_love, can't see the truth if was in picture book form. I have NEVER been to church when the pastor preaches about who they vote for. The problem with the black community is, not all are with your agenda, so actually think and act for the kids. It was so obvious what Lorenzo Heard was doing, if you can't see it, you just don't want to see it. The clan of 4 ran the school board and unfortunately took the superintendent down with them. I hope you will attend some board meetings now and after Dr. Lane starts and I guarantee you, you will see the difference between personal gain and intentions to do what is right for the kids. Mr. Heard, oops I mean brotherly_love, please preach peace and love and stop the racial divide. Mrs. Brown, oops I mean Ms Rational look at the problems in the system and you will see the tail is wagging the dog, in other words the students are out of control, white and black.

The question is still compelling and relevant: Lorenzo Heard how many children do you have in the Dougherty County Public School System?

1

Sister_Ruby 1 year, 5 months ago

"He doesn't know".

But he does know he's got $3.5 Million dollars coming in from Uncle Sam (aka Obama Money) to piddle away on his Family and Friends. Oh and to pretend there's a couple of kids he's helping along the way.

Some legal way needs to be found to prevent his program getting the money. If you look at the data, the schools he works with are regressing.

My joy is increased with Murfree's departure. He should be relieved today along with Goseer, Graper and all curriuculum coordinators.
