Whatever dude, you are boosting ATL all the time. Do you still stand by your statement? you think ATLANTA is more liberal than CHICAGO. I just want you to know why I called you out. That is a pretty BOLD statement just to say off the cuff. I will also continue to call you out. Especially when it is somebody moving on the line. You make other Atlanta posters that represent it how it is and speak about reality there look bad b/c quite a few are good but it is hard to sort it out from the bad comments. i.e. Atlanta is more liberal than Chicago, Atlanta is urban while Queens is suburban, Atlanta has the most high end shopping in the US, among other stuff etc.

It not that bad..at least Syracuse. Utica gets a bad rap, but is just smaller and isn't as bad as people make it out to be.

Denver can get snow every month between October and May. Our snowiest month is March.

Local legend says that if it doesn't snow by Halloween, we're in for an extended fall.

Last year, we went trick-or-treating with about half a foot on the ground, as we had a blizzard a few days prior.

We don't get as much as you, it doesn't stick around as long as yours does, and it's fluffier and lighter than yours is (usually). And it almost never snows on top of snow, because it melts so fast.

:c rying:
So you go through thousands of my past post and I said that ONE time and all of a sudden its a pattern?LOL: smack: Perhaps you do not understand the word "joke".
As a matter of fact;you told on yourself.You went through hundreds of my past post and yet that was the best you could do?
You could not find anything where I said something that was totally false.Also its funny but I have apologized when I have erred in judgement because other people have presented their reasoning in a fair manner.Unlike you who are clearly looking to start something you really are not prepared to defend or finish.
Heres a note for you next time:
To discredit someone you must disprove that what has been stated is erroneous, fallacious,or at least their is some malicious intent.
For example....well like you and your remarks about me.


So save your "anti- trolling" campaign for yourself and move on.

Where did I ever say any of that?You really should check and know who you are talking to before you go off.Talk about delusional!Ill wait for an apology but I wont be surprised if I pass out holding my breath.


"CALL SOMEBODY OUT"?Oh gosh is this 5th grade?I made a statement.An opinion.Im sorry you are upset everyone does not agree with you.It must be lonely in your world.

Where is the "LIE" I told in my reasoning for the answer I gave?
Liberal does not always mean progressive or even good or bad
Facts:
Chicago is the most segregated city in America
Atlanta has had both a black and a female mayor
Atlanta has by far a larger concentration of gays and by raw numbers
Atlanta has the largest concentration of HBCU's in America.Chicago (and Illinois) have none.

Civil rights for gays and blacks usually is a bell weather for cities that are havens for those groups to have support of a liberal leaning government or people.
In order for those things to occur their has to be a "liberal backing".Ill even go so far to meet you and say that while its debatable that Atlanta is more liberal than Chicago,their is sufficient evidence that one could make the case for one or the other.I have no issue with some one saying Chicago,but at least know the history and the reasons why that would be so without just saying Atlanta has little merit to be compared in the same sentence as you said.

So I strongly stand by OPINION based on MY experiences that Chicago is no more liberal than Atlanta.

Oh please, you can't even buy alcohol in Atlanta at a store on a Sunday because you are in the bible belt, the rest is statistical manipulation and you know it. Let's talk actual laws.
One of the most famous anti gay law suits is straight from Atlanta Bowers vs Hardwick.
You guys had 1-20 year prison sentences for sodomy just a decade ago. Chicago took this off the books in 1962.
Black mayor? Well I would hope so, Atlanta is a majority black city.
If you want to expand your metro as if that is going to help, ALABAMA IS IN YOUR CSA.
If you want to talk about "gay friendly" Chicago had the first officially recognized gay village in the UNITED STATES back in the 60s.
As for your thousands of posts, no not really, it was the 4th one that came up as it was very recent that you are "making trouble".
Remember you are also still in a red state, in the deep south, no matter what little pockets of liberal you have. PS the norms for what flys for "liberal" up north vs in the south is much different. You talk about all this black mayors and stuff, but can't even pull for a black president in Georgia. BTW where do you think the current president is FROM? Doh...
Just stop man...

By the way I am creating a video of you, it will be great.

Actually dude, you are changing it because you got called out on it.

So first it is Atlanta is more liberal than Chicago casually, now it is Chicago is no more liberal than Atlanta, which is it? Stop back peddling, you know what it really is though but too much of a homer and even when called out continue to boost erroneous claims.
Atlanta is not even close to a liberal stronghold as Chicago. I strongly stand by actual real world events, data and the actual laws on the books, have fun and keep thinking in your opinion Atlanta is more liberal than Chicago along with all the other stuff you are surely deluded with in that noggin of yours.
And no I am not crying or being 5th grade, you making that claim is like standing out in the street and yelling "I AM ON FIRE". Of course I am going to notice that.


ps I am not moved by your thug like threats

Damn dude, you should just shut up because you sound like a little b**ch.

Like "on my god, someone said Chicago was not the most liberal city in the world". Man, you sound like you want to go postal or commit suicide becasue it was so painful that someone would say the Chicago was not that liberal.

You have set the bar pretty high for others being offended by .....nothing...

Travel a little if you want to see real liberal cities.... like in Europe... becasue Chicago (and Atlanta) are not liberal

Actually incorrect. North Carolina has been consistently moving toward "blue state status" over the past 20 years and had a "blue" outcome in the 2008 Presidential elections.
