Apop, I really believe we're in a long-term systemic period of slow growth, regardless. Millenials can't buy starter homes because of too much student loan debt, that puts a big damper on the real estate industry, which has always been a sector that helped lead higher growth. Among many other systemic factors that we're facing.
@ A Nonie
There is a bright side if Hillary is elected. She is in the pocket of Wall Street. If she is President, I think we will see a lessening of regulation, a much more business friendly administration and the economy can get out of this pitifully slow growth mode we have been in the last few years.
ceylon: well stated.
2019? Really!?! And that's not even a hard, fast date!?! Unbelievable! And the encroachment on the Park keeps moving in the wrong direction... Really!?! Chuckie got his status quo and we're thanking them. Really!?!
People who support Trump, because they think NAFTA, globalization, and unchecked illegal immigration is ruining the jobs market in America, aren't necessarily racist. They might be. But there are people who would rather have a marginally crazy guy who wants to change all that, than a proven liar and defender of the status quo.
"I think what galls the most is that these bunch of hippies actually got some of what they want. That's just not the proper order of things."
Winner, winner, chicken dinner. Same reason why the GOP wouldn't support Obamacare, even though it was their idea. Can't ever let the "other side" win. Ever.
Gotta be Dodges on 51. Dark w/2 sides
I think what galls the most is that these bunch of hippies actually got some of what they want. That's just not the proper order of things. Hippies are there to be laughed at, derided as unreasonable extremists, joyfully punched, and all their dearly held beliefs paved over. That they could actually win something is just more proof that America needs Donald Trump.
I'm already cornering the market on brown shirts as we speak. Gonna make a mint.
2019 seems like an awfully long time to build a parking lot. It took less time to build FedEx Forum.
Despite the carnival atmosphere, and getting past the particulars of the crazy hawkers trying to make a buck, it's kind of refreshing to see populism hijack a major political party convention. We haven't seen this for a generation.
Pick me up one of those DFT t-shirts Chris. Eventually, they are going to be worth something. I'll pay you twice whatever they cost you, for the time and trouble.
@MM - Excellent idea. You go first.
It's over Oak. Let's start a new discussion about school consolidation.
Timely post - For what it's worth , if your company is searching for a PD F 1048 E , my business partner filled out and faxed a sample document here https://goo.gl/CmGndQ.
I'm constantly amazed that you feel like you are qualified or entitled to judge people's maturity, or any other personal characteristic for that matter, by commentary on this board, Pete.
For the record, I'm laughing at you. And I'd do it to your face too.
Your idea that the State was going to roll over for an illegal proposal was idiotic. As events have proven. That's simply descriptive. It's -magical thinking- that indicates YOUR lack of maturity, as a matter of fact.
Whether you take offense or not is not something which particularly bothers me. As a whole, your commentary here is predictable, patronizing and almost as obnoxious as my own, which is exemplary in that regard. But I'm not running around telling people to 'grow up'. You hold the record for how many times you've used that phrase around here.
So get off your high horse, Mr. Maturity. You're the one who needs to 'grow up' and face reality.
this is a huge fuck you to the city of memphis from the zoo and its city council buddies and whoever pulls their strings. i sure hope im wrong, but this is a tactic to kill a movement. indefinite continuation (2019 gimme break theres already a massive parking surplus) of the status quo is not a victory.
if the opposition to the zoos annexation of the greensward lays down its a huge victory for the zoo.
this agreement is also a violation of the sunshine law.
datGuy, I'm looking up and down this post and I don't see anybody saying anything about you, unless you are Brady. Or lost. Or both.
Of course the truth is that in a generation or two the whole idea of paying to see caged animals will seem quite cruel and backwards. Some large cities are starting to close their Zoos - most recently Buenos Aires.
The main funder of Berlin Boyd's recent campaign was the Chamber of Commerce - which is funded by the pro-Zoo , pro-business, good ole network that runs Memphis. All of them are members of the party of Trump.
But, I suspect that if anyones back was broken the cause was a burger with cheddar not the voters.
maybe I just saw him......go to graceland.com and look at the webcam of his house, rewind to the 4:16 time....he gets out of a car, waves to the camera and takes a photo of two people with him in front of the home.....
