Re: “Bus Stopped: The Battle over Route 31

Thank you for this insightful article. The 31 Crosstown was an equity focused route. It was the only bus that connected the historically segregated areas of North & South Memphis to each other, frequently and without transfers, from 5am to midnight. No other route can replace the 31. Bring it back!

Re: “Bus Stopped: The Battle over Route 31

After the way they handled the trolley, we're now in month 31 of a 'temporary 4-6 month shutdown', I have zero confidence in the management of MATA. Will Hudson must still be running things from his recliner in retirement.

Re: “Dems on the Rebound

One issue items may be a good path for the Dems to get moving again. The Occupy movement failed because it was all over the place on what it wanted. I attended a Rally for Education event and I heard so many side bar issues that it just muddied what was the core issue and how to achieve it.

Gandhi focused strictly on the Salt Tax to get people to rally around him and put him a position to finally break British Rule. Make one issue central that can rally those around you.

The Gun Violence issue may work. The $15 minimum wage issue may work. Dems need to pick the one that can rally the most people around them and push and push it hard.

Re: “All Hands On Deck

Mikey posts from a state of ignorance, i think.

Regarding the jail, isn't the current debacle a rerun of what happened back in the 00's?

Republican Governor, Republican Mayor....

Destroying the environment is part of catering to their base, really.

Mike1,
This is the other forum. What state do you post from? If you must troll, do your homework.

Re: “All Hands On Deck

@mike

You're kidding right? Last time we had a republican president there was a cable show called "That's My Bush!" dedicated to mocking him written by acclaimed animators Matt Stone and Trey Parker. I for one welcome the return of oppositional art. Honestly I've been bored out of my mind during these past 8 years of positivity.

Mike, no one needs to write childish comments about our man-child President Elect. He does it himself every day on Twitter.

Re: “Water Quality Board Rejects Appeal of TVA Plans to Drill Into Aquifier

And if the drawing down of the aquifer at that location causes the Memphis Sands to become contaminated with surface pollutants through the window in the clay layer, ALJ2 will be on here blaming lib'ruls or gummint. Or better yet, saying a polluted aquifer is actually good for us, because some industry shill says so. Hell, Mike Pence said tobacco doesn't cause cancer.

Re: “Memphians Dominate Democratic Leadership Positions in State House

Russian bot inspired stories on World Nut Daily SAY it was "several."

Re: “All Hands On Deck

I was touched and mostly agreed with your comments. That is, until you insulted these fine citizens by adding your biased, uninformed, I guess lies concerning our newly elected president. "Most of his time"? "Every spare moment"? Please. Just stop with the hatred. Just do what you hopefully intended and celebrate the fine people working in the background to make life better for so many.

Write childish comments about the new president in another article / forum ....

Re: “Memphians Dominate Democratic Leadership Positions in State House

ern and LoveBC, I'm pretty sure it was more than several. What is it with conservative and math?

Re: “Water Quality Board Rejects Appeal of TVA Plans to Drill Into Aquifier

ALJ2, aawwww, millions or was it billions, you've finished your Republican budgeting course. Just because we've convinced TVA to stop shooting itself in the foot is no reason to let it continue hammering it's toes.

Re: “Water Quality Board Rejects Appeal of TVA Plans to Drill Into Aquifier

Funny how the same folks who demanded TVA spend hundreds of $millions or $billions to replace the Allen Steam Plant (burning tons and tons of coal a day) with a new "clean" power plant are now up in arms.

Re: “Memphians Dominate Democratic Leadership Positions in State House

LoveBC, you said, "....several of the older AAs not only had to suffer through racism in the 50's and 60's from racist whites."
Maybe one or two, but several, no way, why do you continue to spread liberal propaganda?

Posted by ern on 11/30/2016 at 11:53 PM

Re: “Memphians Dominate Democratic Leadership Positions in State House

Arlington Pop - good post. The tragedy IMHO is that several of the older AAs not only had to suffer through racism in the 50's and 60's from racist whites which as bad enough, but know they are often the crime victims of gangstas wanting some screet cred.

I feel especially bad about the pizza lady murdered by some POS punks. All she was doing was just trying to earn some extra money to give her kids a good Christmas.

TVA Sucks, I completely agree, but since you've included greed, I am wondering who profits from this.
