Welcome to Our Website DeKalb County Sux dot com!I recently acquired the name dekalbcountysux.com.
James and I live in DeKalb County, Georgia. Once upon a time, it was a hell of a place to live. The schools were good, we are not far from downtown Atlanta, if you are brave enough to go down there… and we had Underground Atlanta, the first one, not the joke they have now.
Anyway, DeKalb County, had the best of everything. Memorial Drive was really wild. Six lanes, with a middle turning lane, and businesses packed on both sides of the road for as far as you could imagine. At one point, every bar, that was a bar and did any kind of business was on Memorial Drive. Back when Uncle Tom’s was on Memorial Drive, I was not old enough to go in there at that time, but wow! The parking lot was packed on the weekends, as was every parking lot. I guess that was 40 years ago, 35 at least.
Now, the only things on Memorial Drive are Pawn Shops, liquors stores, run down motels, and DeKalb County Jail, the bigger, better jail.
All of the people that had worked so hard to make DeKalb County, the place to live, and raise your kids, would all be rolling over in their graves right about now. What a disgusting, disgraceful place. Memorial Drive sux, just like the rest of the County does.
Now that we have foreclosure hell, where the Bank With The Most Homes in the End Wins!!! All of the streets have vacant houses, some boarded up, some not. You can ride down any road, and see the homes without anyone living in them. Some streets have more vacant homes, than occupied homes. What kind of screwed up sense does any of this make?
Let’s just make the whole state look like the slums, and maybe the damned banks will quit foreclosing, cause they sure as hell won’t have anyone left that can get a loan to buy a house. Oh yea, what was it that Goldman Sachs said? Only the rich should own houses anyway. Yea, that was it. Goldman Sachs can bite me!!! And his mama!!!
When is the rest of America going to get pissed off about all this? Never? I have read article after article where everyone is waiting to see when the rest of America is going to get it, and get made as hell too. I guess never. We have become soft, and lazy, we are becoming sheep, wanting to be taken care of, and not worry about anything ourselves, is that it?
That is not who we are! That is not who we came from! We are the rebellious, what the hell would our forefathers say? They would call us a bunch of weenies, and be pissed off for all the fighting they did for us, and for what??? To let the damned banks own our asses, and steal our homes, and throw us out on the streets???
I have lived in DeKalb County, Georgia all of my life, except for seven years, I lived in Gwinnett County.
When I was growing up, DeKalb County, was the place to live. We had the best schools, the best neighborhoods, we had Memorial Drive, and hot-rods.
There had been several key people that built the County up to where it was. The worked long and hard to make DeKalb County just enough better than the other counties, ya know what I mean?
Anyway, I have become ashamed and embarrassed to be from DeKalb County.
Now all one can say about DeKalb County, is DEKALB COUNTY SUX!!!
