Too bad she didn't stay Janice Gordon, WHBQ newsreader...
You might be right! The Fords are very devious as a family, always has been. You know what southern racist say, if you white or light you're right, if black get in the back!
This may be a ruse by the councilmen to get the political monkey off of their backs. Let the state do the distasteful and politically suicidal work of cutting and/or raising taxes. That way, they can tell their supporters, it was the state that screwed you, not me!
But, I have know the fulliloves for over 40 years, including Janis. She may have had and may still do have a substance abuse problem, but, she generally tells the truth about something that is important to the public. I believe that since this can of worms was opened up, the CA will not rest until it finds out the truth.
Like I said before. It is illegal to 'cook the books'. So when the state sees improprieties in past budgets they have no problem at all reading the 'cookers' the riot act. But I believe they will do what Mr. Wilson says.
Three wise choices for well rounded reasoning. I'm afraid you too are of a gathering minority.
"Our Irish, German, and Italian ancestors found that pathway. " Wow, didn't know they came up from the South. Always thought they came over by ship. Learn something new every day!!
Sorry, I cannot resist.
It is true that Memphis passed scrutiny last year, but that was only ordinary scrutiny. This year is different.
Due to the financial history, the state has imposed "strict scrutiny" on the Memphis budget this year, which is what you get with a pattern of repeated discrimination against proper budgetary practices.
As to the traitor and mole, I vote for Mr. Ford. Not only is he the one that got Mr. Wilson to write the letter, he appears to have a very light skin color, which is suspicious as hell. Not as suspicious as Ms Fullilove with her light skin and blonde hair, but that would be way too obvious. Janis is only a decoy. Ford it is.
They balanced the budget last year partly by stealing 20 million from an account for retiree's health care.
As the Mayor said last year:
"We are running a lot on faith and luck right now, hoping everything will go well," said Wharton. "That's a heck of a way to run the city."
Don't you think the incompetence of all of these turkeys should and would draw the attention of the State all on its own?
Tim Tebow is such a wonderful role model. With all he has on his plate trying to practice and make the 53 man New England roster, he still manages to give of his time and energy to help and lead others. God bless Tim Tebow and may he succeed greatly in whatever he does. The world needs more young men like Tim Tebow.
Remember, the Memphis City Budget passed scrutiny from the state last year,yet, before the proposed budget has even been voted on, the state knew exactly what area was troublesome.
Seems like we have a mole for the state somewhere on the city council, a spy and a traitor. We will flush you out and expose you to the rest of the city.
Regardless of what you think of Fullilove, she is no fool. She could have easily said that she would rather not devolve the names, but she did. I believe she is telling the truth and if not for your bias, you would see that she has no reason to lie about that one.
Jeff, Jesus didn't aim to replace the strict rules of the Pharisees with the types of strict rules you are placing on Tim. We are all struggling to get it right, but I've got to question your singling out ONE fault you see in Tim's behavior as an indication of the sincerity of his ENTIRE life and ministry.
And please see the difference between 'disliking' the Bible and 'disliking' the use of a passage to tear a Christian down.
After the stupid MLGW smart meter lie, her credibility is way below "zero". Is she maybe related to a certain state rep from Collierville? They appear to be suffering from the same malady.
Be nice to the pink elephants guys.....
The People demand a breathalyzer test !!!!!
Well, OTP, pretty sure we can guess that reason.
That aside, what a nice picture of Councilwomen Fullilove.
God definitely is very interested in our motives. Scripture involves knowing, understanding, and application. Sad to say, too many times people err in their application of Scripture. One who prays to himself, as the Pharisees attempting to appear that they are praying to God, attempt to make themselves appear better than others are certainly hypocrites as Christ calls them. Certainly this is not the application that could be put upon the motive of Tim Tebow. A simple study of the life of Daniel in the Old Testament, showing how he was willing to visibly and openly pray, even at the cost of death, shows clearly the difference between the motives of Daniel and the Pharisees concerning open prayer. If the Pharisees came under criticism and persecution for their open prayer, they simply would have stopped. Yes, God definitely has great interest in our motives. Until the rules of the team or the NFL changes, Tebow can pray visibly and openly or he can pray silently and unnoticed. Either way, motive, i.e., heart is the standard. Clarity
Did Jesus pat the scribes and the pharisees on the back because they gave a little money to the poor? Did He cut some slack for the money changers because they made it possible for visiting pilgrims to buy the animals they needed to make burnt offerings at the temple? Did He tell the rich man, go and keep your stock options and follow me because God knows churches don't get built on good intentions.
Or didn't Jesus, on those occassions when he told people how not to act, use as His examples people who loudly pray in public to burnish their own piety and whose charitable acts are mostly dedicated to their own glorification?
Up to 19 dislikes now. You people hate the Living Word but you sure do love football.
Tim Tebow is Charismatic. If you knew what Pentecost is, you'd understand he's got the gift to build up the Body of the Church, whereas Tom Brady has 5 Blessed Sacraments, which Sanctify His Soul!
God Bless Them Both!
With Jesus Crucified,
Ms. Mary St. Michael
Let's burn them and be done with them. As God intended.
I wonder why Janis Fullofbooze would not say who the people were while in the council meeting, yet 30 minutes later she had no problem telling a reporter. Did she think the reporter was going to keep it a secret? Well I guess she has done stranger things. You go girl.
When I need instruction on morality, ethics, the metaphysical or the spiritual, I look to three sources, as my particular religious upbringing tells me:
First, to faith and the written word in the Bible.
Second, to tradition, particularly to the tradition of those who share my same faith, and what they have shared with us over the centuries as they have interpreted the written word.
Thirdly, to my own reason, God having given me a brain and reasoning skills for a purpose.
