The famous Lizard versus Wizard contest.
Because that is the way Hillary rolls.
It was a fabulous convention... for the Democratic Party.
Yes as an arena
If someone lies about most everything great or trivial, why would you believe it when they said they would help you?
I was musing the other night with my brother-in-law who lived in Louisiana in the early nineties. In 1991, by some unusual circumstances, the Democratic Party had nominated for governor Edwin Edwards, a corrupt politician even by Louisiana standards. The Republican candidate was the infamous David Duke. The local Republican Party printed up bumper stickers that said "Vote For the Crook!" Duke was defeated and Edwards later was convicted of corruption and sent to federal prison.
Thanks, Chooch. Understanding that architects design to a use, was this study for an arena?
Vanderbilt report was not for City Council. It was for state government.
@Jeff, I agree because there are bigger issues that separate those two groups.
However, in terms of economic concerns and the fact that both groups have been ignored on that front, they have pretty much everything in common.
It's a great match up though for the politicians. They can take these two groups, BLM and your working class whites (a lot of Trump supporters), and they can pit them against each other on the front of social issues. They'll spend so much time arguing over those issues that they'll never pay attention to the way both the GOP and the Dems are screwing them over by working to exacerbate the wealth gap.
Politicians will never really want to solve those social issues either, because they'll serve as such a good distraction for many years to come.
I hear ya. I'm having a really, really hard time with the thought of having to vote for Clinton. The electoral college may deliver me from the necessity. And should I view voting as making a statement, and with the lack of a national leftist voice, I may vote for Johnson.
seriously? are you 9 y.o.?
Yes, the team of very qualified experts all had access to the previous reports. They did however form their own opinions about what it would take to reopen the arena as is was. As stated in the article we also had Code Solutions Group who was the major consultant back then on the team. We met with MCIL and included them on our team to not only meet the DOJ requirements but to go above and beyond and make the press box at the top of the arena accessible.
@Jeff, I am a Kasich supporter. I don't see myself voting this time around.
If Trump should win the presidency, and I pray fervently that he doesn't, this is what our country's future will be like: stand up for Trump or be annihilated. Does anybody else see the resemblance between Trump's rise and the rise of Hitler?
Hattiloo Theatre is one of the best venues in Memphis to experience live theatre. The actors and productions are always first rate and the theatre offer many plays by new playwrights and African American playwrights. Do yourself a favor and check out one of their performances.
Indeed CL, anyone recall the last president to give blanket amnesty to illegal immigrants? Anyone? Firefox?
BLM is a bloody shirt waved by demagogues to enrage downscale white people. Don't wait around for the day the two groups get together to face their real enemies because there are still far too many white volk and far too many politicians who are invested in having that boogeyman out there.
What the Trump supporters have done at the convention is unconscionable. I don't see how, after all this, Cruz and Kasich supporters can, in good conscience, vote for the Republican nominee. Find a good third party candidate and show the GOP establishment that you won't be exiled to the wilderness. Make your voices heard.
I don't see lower middle class whites joining forces with Black Lives Matters any time soon. Not without a saint to bring them together. I say saint because to be a saint you have to be dead, and anyone who could bring together those two groups would end up martyred in a lonely hotel room somewhere.
