Re: “The Starland Village Files: Part Two

Theres a whole lot of totally specious linkages given too much credence simply by publishing this he-said, she-said narrative.

Re: “The Starland Village Files: Part One

In answer to the comments here by Chase Anderson, I would like to respond as the single caller about their acoustic music. There is quite of bit of misinformation put forth by Foxy in the manner used by Bill Cosby and Harvey Weinstein - attack the accuser to deflect from the real problem.

First of all, I tried for 8 months to get cooperation from Ms. Jenkins to solve the problem so I could enjoy living in my home - never asking she end the shows and with no intention of harming her business. When I was met with nothing but empty promises and lack of cooperation, after 8 months, I gave up and turned to the city.

I am by a huge measure not the single caller which can be corroborated by the previous President of the Neighborhood Association, city officials, a former manager and even a current staff member who will all affirm that the complaints have been many for several years.

I have been subjected to reading all the lies put forth and suffered the consequences by those lies spawning hateful remarks, threats and vandalism of my property.

Also, there is NEVER an acoustic music show but rather they are blasted by electronic means throughout the neighborhood where neighbors more than block and a half away claim they are very disturbed by the shows. Thats not an acoustic music performance. It appears you have never attended a performance at Foxy and just adhere to Ms Jenkins dishonest version of the whole saga. A responsible commenter would at least be interested in knowing the full story from both sides. Is that too much to ask?

Re: “Does the Rothschild family control every central bank in the world?

John. F. Kennedy was Assassinated because he spoke out against the Global & Banking Elites. Here is the speech he gave that got him assassinated within a few weeks of giving it.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8HTr-F-FVM

Very chilling. This came from a United States President... An Honest President speaking to the PEOPLE of the United States about these Elites... and the United States President was assassinated for it.... and it was covered it... there was no internet back then, no social media, no way of anyone verifying anything... the CIA controls the TV stations/media/newspapers/propaganda...

Lee Oswald was the fall man... Conveniently he was shot & killed himself the moment he was brought out by police before he could even say a word.... Conveniently, the man who shot & killed Oswald was sentenced to Death and died in prison within 2 years....

Just look at the facts people. Come to your own conclusions. Look at the videos. Listen to JFK... Do you all know his son (JFK Junior) was killed mysteriously out on the ocean back in 1999.... Spread the word. Buy Crypto. We can only trust each other.... Beware of "Deepfakes", beware of ANY social media... 2018 and the future is very dangerous... There are powers and corruption everywhere trying to keep us all oppressed and subjugated.... We are stronger together. Stronger if we are educated.

Re: “The Starland Village Files: Part One

Since no one else is commenting on this thorough piece and since our downtown Alderman has been silent, I just want to offer my services in live moderating a frank and civil panel of city and tourism officials, developers, and last but not least, creative types and native Savannah residents,
with the aim of creating a win win for sustainable development. Do I have time? No. But I will make time. I could also easily be talked out of plunging into the heart of a frenzy.

Looks like this problem even occurs in a local TV market. Jeff Fager Executive Producer of ' 60 Minutes,' Leslie Moonves, CEO CBS News, and Charlie Rose of 'CBS Morning News.'

Re: “National Park Service puts Savannah National Historic Landmark District officially in "Threatened" status

Confident and wise leaders would use the NPS status report as a blueprint for success moving forward and not view it as a threat. Its a gift if viewed in context.

Re: “The Starland Village Files: Part One

Two things stand out. One of them is easily missed. The mention of "the creatives" by a developer is in itself something to look closer at. Bull street artists, who tend to see their art as potentially transformative, are wedded to commercial development in this story. It may be time for downtown artists to gather and explore whether or not that is how they see themselves and what kind of Starland they really want.

Ironically all this in contrast to the bashing Foxy Loxy is getting from our city due to a single caller about their acoustic music. The contrast is enormous.

Despite the criticism targeted at city officials and tourism leaders over the years nothing to date has matched the actions of those who seem intent on now playing a south Florida style of commercial development..one that leaves out the human dimension while battering our legacy of historic perservation..a legacy which created the demand in the first place. And that legacy was successfully promoted for many years by Savannah tourism leaders. That is the product that needs protection by our Chamber and Council.

Our present leaders can do better and succeed but they need expert Local help... whether they want it or not. We are all in this thing together. And we means all of us.

A few in accuracies in that Thingummybob (Apple 4) wasnt the first Apple release, it was Those were the days (Apple 2). Saturday night special had already been released before Apple released it - a hit in Australia, I believe.

Re: “$19.80 vs. $19,800

"The Political Rascals is a group of nine community activists and friends who say theyre committed to making Savannah a more progressive city by addressing inequality and political disempowerment within our government."

Sooo it's a group of liberals and racists that want to ruin Georgia just like all the other liberal cities liberals and racists have ruined (see ChiCONGO, Baltimore, ALL of the Northeast and LEFT coast...)
Why on earth would ANYONE want to be slaves to a government via welfare...?
And why would anyone want to be soft targets for criminals by allowing Stacey Abrams to take away our ability to defend ourselves ? ?
