We need to get rid of the current city council and manager and replace them with individuals who are capable of mature/independent thinking and not feel as though they need to confer with a neighborhood association. I belive this will happen eventually, but until it does, the City of Dunwoody is destined for years of wasted money and bad press.

Ann Rob, I agree with you 100%!!! The city of Dunwoody is the laughing stock of this entire area. It will never amount to anything as long as it is ruled by insufferable snobs - who think they died & went to heaven just because they LIVE in DUNWOODY!!!!! I've often wondered out loud - why don't they just build a "moat, wall & drawbridge around the place" and charge a Toll for entering."

Ann, the moat has been discussed and investigated. However, the Georgia DNS and the Fed (EPA) ruled it not possible due to the current Lake Lanier levels. As lake levels rise there will be ab RFP issued. The wall is tricky. The price to transport Colonial-style cobblestone from New England is cost prohibitive and the DHA said it can only be built with cobblestone from the Plymouth Rock area. And the day-laborers over off Tilly Mill have organized and now demand $12 an hour for any work more than raking leaves into a pile. Rob has been running his mouth here for a long ime but has yet to announce his campaign for council. Rob is a keyboard commando, usually working the mouse with one hand keeping his other hand... uhh, free to do other things. Bad press is okay with me. It lets everyone know not to come here with your apartment blueprints. it also sends a message to the low-information voter to stay away. Why are we a laughing stock? It is because of Jimmie and Rob and Bonser, and Joe, and the wanna-be tree huggers who themselves drive around in an SUV, live in 5000 sq foot homes, eat out nightly, blah blah blah.

DWM...nice free shot denture sucker. As for me, not a tree hugger, just one seeking true democracy from a council hell bent on serving special interests. SUV? check. Believing in supporting local businesses and need the write off. 5000 sq foot home? Which one of four do you refer to? Eat out nightly? Nope..waiting for it to be more convenient when there is only one lane each way through dunwoody village and can take pot shots at the hundreds of progressive young couples wheeling their 12 bags of groceries home while dangling their kid in traffic (what kind of moron actually thinks this progressive utopia works here??)..blah, blah, blah? I'll leave that to you and Rob. Happy New Year everyone!
jimmie December 30, 2012 at 08:51 PM
And Happy New Year Dr.Bonser. Another year of standing up to the boys and you'll drive them mad!!! and keep the rest if us safe!
jimmie December 30, 2012 at 08:53 PM
My first new years resolution..expose Emily for you "she" really is and what "she" is really all about. bring your tribe from the convalescent garden baby! I'm ready!
Rob December 30, 2012 at 09:56 PM
@Ann - A troll by any another name is still a troll. You really are the @dunwoodyduma** BTW.. I saw a big, fat Hawk at DHS this morning... I`m sure it was the one from your "Hawk Emergency".... do tell?
Rob December 30, 2012 at 09:59 PM
If I were Jason, I would convert the Patch over to Facebook only login posts like one of his competitors did. But wait, then the troll would just post as "Gladys Cravitz" & "Earnest T" like he does on other sites :-(
jimmie December 31, 2012 at 01:28 AM
Rob, get over the troll excuse for anyone who disagrees with you..you know darn well you are king troll!...and we are legion!
jimmie December 31, 2012 at 01:29 AM

Rob December 31, 2012 at 02:36 AM
Whatever you say dgroupie, Colleen, GaryRayBetz, Max, Bob Turner, Georges Danton, Ken, and don`t forget: Daughter of the Poet!! "Hawk, Hawk"...
Emily December 31, 2012 at 03:09 AM
jimmie, you must have a crush on me. You cant go a day without mentioning me here. Perhaps you are threatened by me and you can't control your misogynist tendencies! I can assure you that you do not scare me in the slightest!
jimmie December 31, 2012 at 03:12 AM
I am but one...who would love to see Jason enforce his rule that you dont waste time pontificating on identities...although I know that would eliminate 70% of your posts. Moved to Brookhaven yet. I!ll buy you a ticket outta the dwood.... To anywhere
jimmie December 31, 2012 at 03:14 AM
Nope Emily farmerette, just know how you work and how folks like you are too freaky at your age and need to be kept an eye on
jimmie December 31, 2012 at 09:15 PM
I would improve Dunwoody by adding a Hickory House II !
Rob December 31, 2012 at 09:46 PM
We have already received one improvement, a new Chick-fil-A at Williamsburg. Good food, Christian owned, and a "gay free" zone for the family.
jimmie December 31, 2012 at 10:41 PM
I concur. An awesome experience in dining
Musthaf Arod Upyur Poopur January 01, 2013 at 02:18 AM
jimmie - interesting that you and Rob are both homo phobes. Could it be you are secret lovers?
jimmie January 01, 2013 at 03:54 AM
Between straight and gay, I choose straight. The old homo phobe don't apply. Just a poor excuse by the intolerant who demand tolerance.
jimmie January 01, 2013 at 03:57 AM
Straight pride festival tomorrow at hickory house and chickfila!! I'm buying!
DunwoodyWorkingMan January 01, 2013 at 05:08 AM

DunwoodyWorkingMan January 01, 2013 at 05:48 AM
