Re: “Cohen Gets New Committee Assignment: Ethics

"ALJ2" auf Deutsch: dummkopf. Noch besser.

Hey, dummkopf: there can only be one "Fuhrer" in Washington, and your so-called president qualifies, little hands down. Verstehen Sie?

"ALJ"? A so-called administrative law judge, perhaps? It wouldn't be surprising.

Re: “Shelby Legislator Lovell Resigns

Agreed CL.

Modern day lynch mobs are tame by comparison. It's still shocking and scary to me to see how quickly someone can get railroaded for a fair, but maybe unpopular, political opinion.

On the sexual assault thing, it's something that hasn't historically been punished at the rate that it should. It still is a little concerning though that just an accusation can cause you to lose your job, even if the accusation is later proven false.

Now, in this particular case, since Lovell resigned, it leads me to believe there is at least something to these allegations.

Re: “Cohen Gets New Committee Assignment: Ethics

So ALJ2, you are against the US's best interests? This Putin romance of you guys is getting out of hand, wait wait, I've waited years to say this.... "Why don't you go back to Russia!"

Re: “Cohen Gets New Committee Assignment: Ethics

No higher standard bearer of ethics than a Jewish Congressman who refuses to publically recognize, much less condemn, a documented, proven case of genocide (the Armenians by the "peace-loving" Muslim Turks) because it isn't in the US's best interests!

LoveBC,
If you are just going to make things up when there is more than enough reasons to condemn the Democrats, then no, you don't need to say more.

Re: “Cohen Gets New Committee Assignment: Ethics

@ CL, Steve was to busy trying to throw a former MPD officer under the bus to pull a nun away from said bus. AG Lynch was smart enough to see that Steve was just hamming it up for his constituents.

Granted politicians on both sides of the aisle are not known for their ethics, but I believe the democrats could have found someone more ethical (don't ask me to name any recommendations with their rapidly sinking #s) than Steve.

Getting back to my first point, it was highly immoral for Steve to use his powerful position to try to get the top AG in the country to further harm an officer that was just doing his job to apprehend a multi-state sexual molester that would still be alive if he obeyed the lawful commands of a commissioned police officer instead of going into attack mode. If a GJ cannot indict, further pursuit is just harassment. Also, making up the story of having an illegitimate child was way over the top and smacked of playing into the stereo-type of south Memphis streets filled to the brim with children of un-wed mothers.

Steve is probably the highest ranking democrat in Tennessee. His pro-criminal attitude, and continuing dis-respect of the white working class is continuing to make Tennessee increasingly red. Geez, this state went to Trump, need I say more?

Re: “Shelby Legislator Lovell Resigns

@ mejjep, naw, repubs are not known for strong moral ethics either. Ole Bill was just slick enough to get away with it. There is no way to prove it, but I suspect Hillary lost some votes because she touted feminist rhetoric but stood by her philandering husband and even attacked his victims.

Nobody has the right to sexually molest someone else.

Re: “Shelby Legislator Lovell Resigns

If the allegations of touching are true, Lovell was wrong. If true, Lovell should have fessed up, asked for forgiveness, and then resigned

If the allegations of touching are untrue, and Lovell resigned, he was wrong for resigning.

I hate to see him lose his morals the same way all those campaign signs disappeared into the trunk of a Mercedes.

Re: “Shelby Legislator Lovell Resigns

Grove,
Of course in the world we used to live in a lynch mob hung and burned people. Or invaded countries and killed hundreds of thousands. I'd say the social justice warriors are relatively soft core. But wrong is wrong.

Re: “Shelby Legislator Lovell Resigns

@FUNK,

I agree on the lynch mob mentality. It's the new way though. If you're accused of something, or worse, if you step out of line and say something that offends someone, the lynch mob comes out to try to get you fired from your position via public pressure. It has groups and businesses quick on the trigger with anything these days just to avoid the lynch mob.

See the University of Missouri "racism" issues that led to the resignation of the chancellor and the President of the entire system. Those issues turned out to be a bunch of nothing and overreaction, but because the social justice warriors came out in full force, people had to lose their jobs, even though they couldn't have done anything differently or better than they did.

It's the world we live in these days.

Re: “Cohen Gets New Committee Assignment: Ethics

LoveBC has such a hard-on for Cohen, that should Steve pull a nun out of the path of a runaway bus, Lovebc would accuse him of interfering with mass transportation and religious freedom.

This is the kind of behavior to be expected out of Bill Clinton, not Lovell.

Publicly claiming another man's daughter as your own is much lower. Steve needs to apologize to the Frank, Jr. estate.

Re: “Shelby Legislator Lovell Resigns

A person accused of a crime has a right to a trial before they are treated as guilty.

It's the only reasonable way to deal with accusations of a criminal nature.

Forming a lynch mob over an accusation without any serious investigation is always wrong.

If history teaches anything, it's that lynching, lynchmob mentality, and witch hunting are always, always wrong. The court of public opinion is notoriously bad about determining factual guilt. The court of public opinion declared Iraq at fault for 9-11, for example.

Emmett Till was falsely accused of sexual assault.

Consensually cheating on your wife could be considered inappropriate touching in republican circles.

I will say, however, that only a scalded dog howls, and Lovell is definitely acting guilty. I'd like to believe he wouldn't do anything fully criminal, but I could be wrong.

Re: “Kelsey, Harris File Legislation to Regulate Future Water Policy in West Tennessee (UPDATED)

I want to know the name of the bastard at TVA who came up with this "plan" to contaminate the aquifier that anchors the Coca Cola bottling plant and the local breweries here.

This whole plan seems like an attempt to reduce the appearance of fine amenities in Memphis in order to....

...wait for it...

Drive people out of Memphis into Nashville. Again.

And oh look, the Federal Government is extremely deadlocked and weak, the only ally citizens have against abuses by the state.

I know I might sound like a conspiracy theorist, but if someone could convince me all this overwhelming evidence I constantly see in the news isn't the enactment of a deliberate plan to destroy the city I call home, I would be much happier than I currently am.

Oh great, more low-blowing family drama stuff.

Who cares about policy when we can scandalize sexuality?
