I believe it goes without saying that today’s colleges politically influence more young graduates than any other media available. The “correctness” and Cultural Marxism spoken in institutions of higher learning circumvent all other known common sense taught by “life’s lessons” and conveniently hides the evils and corruption the older generations actually witnessed by watching the more collective institutions and governments collapse under their own weight of dependence.
While the “degrees, diplomas and PHDs” in education abound, the actual intelligence is replaced by the instructed or brainwashed “knowledge” and leaves the “well instructed” student a simple shell hoping to somehow serve his more dependent mankind (and his insatiable government) rather than actually achieving what was handed to him on a silver platter with little difficulty earning…prosperity and self security!
The young and naïve simply believe what they are taught to believe and that is that the “older independent generation” cares only for their personal wealth and NOTHING for the underprivileged or minorities. That simple notion is enough propaganda to sway those well educated minds to follow the ideology that will ultimately enslave them as it has Europe.
I am afraid the young will only realize their mistake when they become “the older dependent generation” or when the effects of their safe sex, social media, smart phone, professional sports and Godless drug and entertainment culture wear off where they can finally see what they and their parents actually gave up in exchange for what made their life so easy for such a short while.
In about two weeks a major rock concert is planned in Memphis and Club 152 is one of the venues holding some of the events. Lets hope some of this can be cleared up and the event can go on without a hitch. Nothing makes Memphis look better than shut down clubs. Poor Scion / Toyota...
It really is great to see Dana Carvey getting a gig again, this time as Governor of Tennessee. It's also great to see Stephen Fincher keep up his comedy routine from his Fincher Family gig... http://www.thefincherfamily.com/
I warned people that there was no way the Grizzlies should be favored over the Spurs, despite the national media jumping on the bandwagon. Here are the reasons I listed:
1. The Spurs have home court. I expect the Spurs to win in 7.
2. The Spurs have great outside shooters, especially from the 3-point range. The Grizz do not. Every time they've been bounced from the playoffs it's been because of their
lack of outside shooting.
3. The Spurs have the most motivation. Every since the Grizz bounced them from the playoffs as an eighth seed, SA has been on a mission of payback.
4. Much as I hate to admit it, POP is the best coach in the league. Lionel isn't chopped liver but he'll have to at least coach Popovich to a draw for the Grizz to advance.
5. SA has the experience in these kind of series and the Grizz do not. Winning championships is a progression. Going from never having advanced past the second round to champions may be too much of a stretch.
In my opinion, the key to this series is Tony Parker. Someone will have to be able to stay in front of him and at least slow him down. If he continues to get into the paint at will, we're through. I say Put Tony on him, plead with him not to make foolish fouls, live with Parker's forays into the lane, and not leave their three-point shooters.
Also, Grizz fans, don't worry, be happy. The team has accomplished a lot. Root for them but don't get all bent out of shape if they lose. I framed the stories of the Grizz clinching against the Clips and OKC. I'm good for this year as long as the Grizz play hard and put up a fight.
What you are saying was relevant in the past, but, in todays world of instant communications and numerous news outlets, blogs, etc, it is not valid today.
One cannot get away with saying one thing to mobilize his/her troops without the other side hearing about it. Truth and facts will now rule the day, not just political talking points.
As an aside, a report is out today that says, according to the last census, Suburban Shelby County had a whopping 64% increase in poverty. Those are facts felt by those 64% that fell into poverty. An astute politician with the right computer program can successfully target those 64% and get some of them to switch sides with their vote. That is what Obama did, he didn't change his message. With those increase in poverty facts, the right politician, fair haired and blue eyed, can possibly beat a republican in suburban Shelby County. That is because when all is said and done, pocketbook issues rule at the time of elections.
Yes, there were quite a few republicans that would not have voted for Obama and didn't regardless of what his message was. But, those same republicans could not see themselves, while watch the Romney horse dancing beautifully at the Olympics while they worried whether they would have a job the next day voting for him. that young women that saw what conservative governors were doing by ordering forced vaginal ultrasounds, the closing of abortion clinics, just became frightened and could not vote for a republican. Hispanics that were told to self deport and that the border fence should be electrified just couldn't see voting for a republican. A white republican when he heard the 47% speech and realized that he was in that 47 percent, no, wouldn't vote for Obama, but, he damn sure would not vote for Romney.
It was the message that screwed the republicans, Romney and the senate candidates. Unless that changes, the gop is a dying, one region party.
Any good leader takes responsibility for failures that happen on his watch...even if he/she had nothing to do with them and did everything in their power during the process.
That's how you earn respect as a leader.
You say, "I take responsibility for Failure X, and we are doing Y and Z and everything else under our power to make sure Failure X never happens again".
The reason you do that as a leader is because there is ALWAYS something that you could've done in the past that might have prevented what went on under your leadership. That's one thing I think Obama could do better. It would make him look like a stronger leader to stand up and take responsibility for mistakes and failures more often, even if they weren't his mistakes or failures.
how can you leave out Jones BBQ Diner in Marianna, AR?? JAMES BEARD AWARD winning - but you better call first - when they run out they close!
OTP - switch to decaf
I am an independent thinker. I don't march to every beat of the drum by Obama. I support him overall, however, some of his policies, I don't support at all and I let it be known.
Yes, I tend to believe the generals when they tell me something about war, actually moving troops and fighting. They are not just Obama's generals, for anyone who gets at least 3 stars and above have to be approved by the congress. You didn't know that, did you?
You see, unlike you, I realize that the president, other than ordering out the troops, has no power. It is the congress who has the power to make laws, take, declare, confirm cabinet appointments and confirm judges to the federal bench. All a president can do is propose, hell, he can't even submit a proposal to congress, for he is not a legislator.
Blaming Obama is the smokescreen that you dumb conservative gop let your leaders get away with to take the heat off of themselves. It is not I, but you and others like you that are led by the nose and ass by your leaders.
I heard on radio this morning that Hollins had said it wasn't so bad after reviewing the tape.
I assume by that he meant that the problems he saw were easily fixable. That was very encouraging to hear.
The pattern in the first two series has been odd line ups and losses in Game 1. Our coaching staff has almost used Game 1 as a barometer to measure the opponent and figure out during live action what works and what doesn't.
I think they believe they have answers this time too. We will find out tonight if they have answers. Even if tonight is a close loss (like the Clipper series), I will be encouraged.
Glad you have the benefit of hindsight, they didn't.
Glad you believe everything Obama's Pentagon tells you, I don't.
I do have one question, does the ring hurt your nose when Obama pulls on it?
Another of your dumb posts about sending help for the embattled, late Ambassador in the Benghazi attack.
When I said that, by the time help could have been, mustered, sent and arrived on the scene in Benghazi, it would have been too late is from hindsight of the timeline of how long it took for the attack to be over and that information was from the pentagon itself. The pentagon could truthfully say this because of what they knew after the attacks, not before. As a matter of fact, they did send help, it just arrived too late. Hell, we also know from hindsight that if Major Reno had decided not to cross the Little Big Horn, maybe he could have saved Custer. All of this was and is after the fact.
CE, you and Diogenes still have not posted any definitive facts about cover ups and lies by the Obama administration, yet you still espouse this. It is one thing to be dumb when it comes to facts, but it is even worse when you have absolutely nothing to back up your theories. Both of you have lost all semblance of credibility when you post these incredible conspiracy theories.
As usual, you only tell the part of an article of fact that tends to support your position. Don't you realize that others can read also?
Radar and satelites can detect where mortars are fired for, but, not exactly. If you read all of the article that you posted links to, mortars are so dangerous because they fire at an upward angle. This simple means that mortars can fire over hills, buildings, behind walls, etc. They are also highly mobile and can be moved very fast to a new location. If a mortar is firing from behind a building, hospital or nursery for example, would you destroy those facilities to destroy the mortars, that is, if they have not already been moved to a different location? You assume that the enemy is stupid, I can assure you they are not.
Diogenes, why don't you just give it up? Every silly post you have made with dubious and twisted facts, I have knocked a hole into it. If you are going to post a reference and speak to what it says, then, make sure you tell all of the relevant information. Cherry-picking only the information the reinforces your position and leaving out the rest kind of makes you look dumb!
Erica, I never claimed to speak for ALL of America. But the facts of the matter speak for themselves. There was hardly ever a mention of these kooks in the media while they were torturing grieving mothers at the funerals of their gay sons for decades. And congrats on being from Minnesota. I've been there many times. If you go just a few miles outside of Minneapolis-St.Paul, it's as redneck as Tipton County.
