Re: “Memphis’ Pyramid Dream

Will the Bass Pro at Sycamore View be closed?

Re: “Memphis’ Pyramid Dream

Actually auto, St Louis used to have a McDonald's on a boat right under the Gateway Arch, and a Burger King on another one.
I continue to be amused that anonymous, online commentors are apparently the only ones that know what's good for this city.

Re: “Memphis’ Pyramid Dream

The only reason I'm willing to give the Bass Pro Pyramid a chance is because the Flyer is telling me I should. But none of what you say or what Bass Pro does will change the fact that our riverfront has become a mismatched mishmash of half-starts and private dreams. We've become wedded to a sporting goods store because we didn't have a good enough competing vision of what the Mississippi River means to this city. It's as if St. Louis opened a McDonald's franchise at the Gateway Arch and painted it gold.

Re: “Memphis’ Pyramid Dream

The BassPro store on Sycamore View does a good business. Will its current clientele drive downtown to the new one?

Hey, I resemble that snark.

So what you're saying is, on opening night, the ground floor will be flooded again. Progress!

No Derek, you didn't get it straight. Try again.

Re: “I’m Not Sexist, But ...

So, let me get this straight Bruce, if you don't support Obama or Hillary politics, you're a racist or sexist....is that right? What a crock!

Re: “I’m Not Sexist, But ...

@Kilgore,

It's funny you say that, because I post on another forum that's heavily Tea Party. They think I'm a flaming Liberal, where here I'm considered Conservative.

Anyway, on that forum, they are struggling to find a GOP candidate that's conservative enough, and they're flat out convinced that the only way the GOP gets back the White House is if they can get a candidate on the ticket that's MORE conservative.

The reality is, those that actually run the country nationally are not all that different from each other, and it ticks off the hardcore liberal and conservative bases equally. How far apart do you think Chris Christie or Jeb Bush is from Hillary Clinton on the political spectrum? Not all that far in reality.

Re: “I’m Not Sexist, But ...

I'd love to see a real liberal in this race, instead of Republican Lite Hillary. Of course, the GOP has moved so far to the right they make her look downright progressive by comparison.

@Mr. jrgoldem

How would that be any different than what already occurs? I was under the impression that this already occurs. In fact, as far as I can tell, the partys in question already vote for the most wack MFer they can find, regardless of party affiliation.

Clyde, you are not making it any harder.

Re: “I’m Not Sexist, But ...

What do you call someone who hates liberal policies? That's more apt to be accurate than "racist" or "sexist" in trying to define folks who didn't vote for Obama or won't vote for Hillary.

Re: “I’m Not Sexist, But ...

Let's have some fun. In states with open primaries how about Democrats and Independents vote for the most right wing candidate of the GOP. With that overwhelming mandate they'll be free to articulate their heartfelt agendas. With no filter.

Truthfully to this point, all the candidates that both parties have trotted out really make you cringe. Where have you gone Joe Dimaggio?

Re: “I’m Not Sexist, But ...

Hmmm... If the candidates were cars, Hillary is a heavily used old luxury Peugeot from the 1980's. And all these Republicans are econobox four-bangers. Except Rand Paul, who's got a Wankel.

I don't want four years of any of them. Is there another car lot out there someplace?

Re: “I’m Not Sexist, But ...

The boys are right there Charles, "The Second Amendment allows owning a gun to a non-felon". The big 2 don't say nuthin' bout felons. Maybe you and Ern can recover that common ground on the "slippery slope".

Boy you said it Ern. Either we're Strict Constructionistas, or we're not. Just because a person goes around waving the Tenth Amendment like a yellow flag at a short track NASCAR race doesn't make him a patriot.

Re: “I’m Not Sexist, But ...

CHG,
So a State can say which constitutional right they will respect? Shame on you. Felons have as much right to firearms as double-parkers and those vile people who don't trim their lawns every week whether it needs it or not. Rules are Rules!! You are probably not supporting slavery as our Founders untended either. Wimp ass conservatives like you are contributing to the downfall of our Fatherland.
