Re: “Planners Plan to Have a Plan: Memphis 3.0 Will Map City's Future

@julie

So you're basically saying you have no idea what you're talking about and had to look it up in the dictionary?

Re: “Being There: No App For That

I have always followed the guide line: If I don't shop in my neighborhood, I won't be able to shop in my neighborhood.

Re: “Being There: No App For That

It's so important to support local businesses. Their products and services are most times superior.

Re: “Tulsa 81, Tigers 71

Didn't see this loss coming. Thought if a Pastner coached team could sweep Tulsa, then it would've been a no brainer for a Tubby coached team to win. But.......

Re: “Commercial Appeal Eliminating Paid Freelance Writers

I have been very disappointed in the CA since it became a USA Today sub. The articles are so left wing and local coverage is minimal. To eliminate the local writers is another attack on freedom of expression. Assume that their liberal writers will now use the space to rant against Trump. Will definitely miss the outdoor columns by Larry Rea. Such a pity!

Re: “Planners Plan to Have a Plan: Memphis 3.0 Will Map City's Future

This is what I believe.
Definition of capitalism, according to Merriam-Webster: an economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods, by investments that are determined by private decision, and by prices, production, and the distribution of goods that are determined mainly by competition in a free market.

Here's a link to some pro/con points of annexation that are concise. Under cons, item number 7 is to what I am referring in my previous post. But this is a separate issue from capitalism.

Re: “Planners Plan to Have a Plan: Memphis 3.0 Will Map City's Future

Those are two different things. Annexation happens primarily to get more tax money. With the tax money comes responsibility. City services cost money. Services cost less in concentrated areas. Capitalism is something quite different. If it looked like I linked the two, I could have worded it better. It was just a statement I agreed with from the article on growing up not out.

Julie,
How is curtailing outward movement not shackling capitalism?

Re: “Rep. Andy Holt: Lottery Commercials 'Disgusting, Out of Hand'

It is unwise to rely on Andy Holt for one's own personal AR15 supply, so I have purchased my half dozen copies outright.

Andy Holt, suddenly concerned about the welfare of our poorest all while denying them the Obamacare expansion. Just like faux Jesus Christ would do.

Re: “Planners Plan to Have a Plan: Memphis 3.0 Will Map City's Future

Private developers should have their shackles removed. Capitalism should be allowed to flourish. If I see a .org or .gov in conjunction with development, I know it's just smoke and mirrors and the last one to benefit is the community. Government and non-profits should create a path to private development-not BE private development. I agree with curtailing outward movement. Up not out. But we are already out. There is significant development in-but resources are still spread too thin. Until significant de-annexation, it's more of the same no matter how you package the plan.

Re: “Shelby County Commission Delays Vote on STD Prevention Funding

If you think STDs are God's Vengence, then you don't really care, do you? How many benighted people think this way?

Must be a cold day in hell because I largely agree with Andy Holt this one.

Every unplanned child brings our state closer to having another Representative in Congress.

I mean, who cares about the kid after it's born? We gotta catch up with California!

Re: “Report: New Zoo Lot Would Take an Acre of Greensward

farmer guy, I would re-sod all the Overton Park zoo parking (maybe throw in a putting green/nude sun bathing zone), turn your aforementioned vacant lots into parking lots, employ the unemployed to drive shuttles and provide lot security. And pay for the whole thing with small lot/shuttle fees and by selling tickets and pay-per-view to watch one politician thrown in with a different caged carnivore every month. And by ending communistic farm subsidies.
Enterprising youth can sell food and beverages far below zoo prices along the shuttle route.
