Re: “Pin and Bear It

@ Packrat - Trump can get away with "socialism" because he just says he's going to do something but doesn't say how it will get done. Like with the Carrier deal. Trump is taking all the credit and his supporters are gladly giving it. But it wasn't even his deal to make. It was the state's deal. Plus, these kinds of things happen all the time and conservatives almost always bitch about them. Any time a company locally gets a PILOT deal, the conservatives tear up the comment boards with complaints about it. The Carrier deal is no different (except that even less jobs were "saved") but the foolish trump supporters are singing his praises. To quote the orange one, Sad.

Re: “Pin and Bear It

@Firefox - how have Democrats both lost power and been all-powerful in the last 8 years? It has to be one or the other. Either Democrats have been the party shaping policy and changing the country, or they've been the party that has lost more seats at all levels in the last eight years.

Now that I read it, "a Duck's Unlimited Member" brings us full circle.

Interestingly, the operation for correction of an abnormal curvature of the male reproductive organ is called 'The Nesbit Procedure'. Where do you live in Mississippi, CL?…

Re: “MATA Needs More Funding

Public transportation is often neglected, but a necessity in a large city. IMHO, we are going backwards in Memphis regarding public transportation. It used to be possible to ride trains to and from Cordova, G-town and Collierville up until the early 60's.

I think MATA is trying hard to expand bus service. A few years ago, they tried the 22 Route Rabid Bus Service from Germantown to Memphis, basically, this mirrored the 50 Route without the constant stops. But, as I said in last week's post, public transportation is beneath most Memphians/Germantownians.

I feel bad for those that have to rely on bus service. We spend a huge cost because of our out of control criminals which is diverting needed funds from MATA and I do not see how we can adequately fund MATA.

Re: “Pin and Bear It

LDD: to answer your question, no, I don't kiss my mom with "that mouth," since she's long since dead. I have, however, used it to kiss yours.

Oh, and since you, like your orange-headed idol, think that anyone who criticizes him, or his acolytes---like you---must be a Democrat, allow me to enlighten you: it doesn't take a Democrat to recognize the disaster your idol holds in store for this country; it only takes someone with at least three brain cells, which is three more than your hero has.

Oh, and "Long Duk Dong" is the movie character; "Long Duck Dong" is the anatomical reference. My suggestion stands.

Re: “Pin and Bear It

Moverhill: Do you kiss your mom with that mouth? And I "liked" your comment for re-confirming that Libs lack both a sense of irony & a sense of humor. Please PM me the date/time/location of the next Shelby County Democratic Party meeting/prayer circle. Oh. Never mind. Mary Mancini b-slapped you and your fellow travelers, citing your incompetence, malfeasance, and general goofiness.

Note: LDD references and pays homage to a stellar 1980s movie character, not my anatomy. You perv.

Re: “Pin and Bear It

Hey, LDD: do you need me to say it, or can you figure out what I think you should do with your "long duck dong." Here, let me give you a clue: go fuck yourself.

Oh, and as for problems with what gets posted on FB or Twitter, here's a suggestion: stop using them. They are primarily for people with small minds or short attention spans and are both known to destroy brain cells.

Re: “Pin and Bear It

Democrats have driven the country into a ditch. We don't mind the Democrats joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back.

Elections have consequences Bruce.

There's a reason Democrats have lost more seats (federal, state, and local) in the past 8 years than ever. They are way out of touch with the American middle class. Leftist elites have been shaping policy and changing the country for 8 years and have left the American middle class high and dry. If Trump can follow through with his campaign pledges, the American middle class will vote firmly Republican for the near future. If he doesn't follow through, then I expect the pendulum to swing back to Democrats 8 years from now.

Re: “Pin and Bear It

And let's don't overlook Trump bad-mouthing Pharma for high drug prices and talking about (threatening) to make them lower prices on drugs. When Hillary does it it's Socialism, when Trump does it it's business negotiating.
Very little about this pompous jackass is anything Ronald Reagan would have supported. It only proves republicans don't have principles, except for doing anything and saying anything to gain and keep power.

Re: “Pin and Bear It

I've gotta sign off on @charlieepps comment.

Axiomatically, the truth is ugly.

Axiomatically, the truth hurts.

If you are not saying ugly, hurtful things, what you are saying doesn't sound like truth.

Conversely, if what you are saying is ugly and hurtful, even if it isn't truth, it's going to carry a lot more truthiness to a non discerning audience than statements that are not ugly and hurtful.

Surgeons do ugly, hurtful things to people all the time, but surgeons themselves are one of the highest forms of good that exist. There's nothing pretty about a bad diagnosis requiring surgery, but it's best to cut out the cancer than let it kill you.

Truth by definition is objective; emotions have no place in rational discussion. In our case, it is trumped up drama that is the cancer.
