Welcome to the wonderful world of Republican government. We don't care that hundreds of thousands go without health care. If hospitals all around the State close, then that's no concern of ours. But we have to make sure that our poor oppressed wealthy people get as many tax breaks as possible!
Jane Eskind became the first woman to chair the Tennessee Democratic Party in 1994. Also, Eskind is the first woman to win a statewide election in Tennessee -- shebwon a seat on the Public Service Commission in 1980.
Someone should stick a pin in Lowery's over-inflated ego.
How 'bout this,if you're not healthy,you cannot work the drive through at Krystal. While trying to utilize one's degree in acounting.
Foolish move indeed. Maybe his instincts aren't as sharp as I thought.
Myron just pissed away a lot of good will. Good luck with passing the mantle to Mickell.
Are you going to talk about the new players eventually? People are tired of the same politicians. Www.mayorgolden.com
Cohen makes you gag more than Herenton, and Stevie seems like such a little guy. Besides, isn't pandering to one's constituency pretty much part of a congressman's job description?
Well CL, to compare apples to apples about local politics, yes I probably swallowed worse during King Willie's reign, but he was not the pandering kiss up that Cohen is.
I wonder what Boots Ramsey and the Tennessee Legislature thinks about this statue. In their current iteration, they are all about retraction of voting rights. I would think they would want to retract women's voting rights and reverse voting rights and the civil rights amendment, and this statue would be a slap in their faces - which I just love. Thank you, Tennessee Capitol Commission!
Ah c'mon Rags, chow down, you've swallowed worse it the Bush Administration.
This article almost made me throw up in my mouth, yuck! Cohen is still an abysmal embarrassment!
I think Alan LeQuire is an excellent choice for an excellent idea.
Donation is on the way.
I just love Congressman Cohen. Unabashedly progressive, just think if we had a real Democrat as city Mayor.
This is a privately funded effort. We are giving a gift to the state. Alan LeQuire has done two woman suffrage sculptures and has vast knowledge of the subject. That's why he was selected.
I am thinking that some serious consideration should be given by the Tennessee State Building Commission toward soliciting proposals for a "Women’s Suffrage" monument from female sculptors...
In reference to Retired Without Promise, I agree with you! Born and raised in Memphis Tennessee, the citizens of Memphis have been lied to so much that even they believe the lies....until one of the lies directly affects them, huh? My spouse, not familiar with Memphis moved here to marry me, a highly motivated person, gave Memphis his best, a proud hard working Vietnam War veteran who early in our marriage chose city of Memphis employment per the promise of life medical insurance as I was crippled from a medical mistake, no fault of my spouse nor myself . We thought we invested our trust in a reputable establishment, we were sucker-punched by Mayor Wharton. Unable to afford a simple way of life, we are spending our retirement scrambling for affordable medial insurance coverage! Shame on you leaders of broken promises! Shame!
I didn't recall any prayers for the former Police and Fireman who lost their promises of medical care for their families. I will not be in company with fat-cat politicians who show their truths at the table of glutton.
Memphis is dying from overdoses of obesity and homicide. Isn't it possible that these coexist.
No prob, Jenna. There's no doubting that Myron enjoys a good meal. But who am I to make something of that? I've gone through too many wardrobe changes to!
Ironically, he got offended in D.C. on the occasion of Obama's first inauguration when I asked him innocently if he owned a tuxedo. I asked because I myself was accustomed to rentals so as to accommodate changes in size. So at least his weight must remain stable. :-)
