Re: “Schedule for Local Democrats' Reorganization Efforts

Arlington Pop...
You are spot on when you said: "I have no idea... why..."
______________________________________________

Answer: So Why does a fisherman keep his BAIT in a Bucket with no nourishment and very little water?
Ever notice how crabs behave in a bucket with no nourishment?

Just remember - the more the crabs rip into each other, the stinkier they become - and the better BAIT they are for the BIG GAME FISH.
Ever notice how the disparaged communities of North Memphis, South Memphis, Frayser, Orange Mound or Southeast Shelby County are systemically eliminated from better educational, job and entrepreneurial opportunities in this county? Well, "they" ultimately succumb to the "survival of the fittest theory" and become "the stinky bait" for the BIG GAME FISH of the criminal justice system's police-bailsmen-attorneys-judges-probation-corrections, hospital, prisons, rehabs and cemeteries or the concrete jungle just-in-time worldwide distribution system, headquartered in Memphis, that usually employ grown people part-time at less than $13/hr with limited to NO benefits.

After initiation as BAIT, most are no longer qualified to vote - which is the WHAT of this "Party story" in a demographic area like Shelby County.

Please remember, any community selected for BAIT DUTY will behave in exactly the same way as the ones I listed above!!! Have you ever noticed which community is NOW crying the loudest from the current opioid crisis?

Meanwhile, thanks for the response(s)... keep-em coming!!! (smile)

Re: “Zaka Bowl Expands Menu, No Longer Vegan

I look forward to trying it. The cult of veganism is blind to its own shortcomings.

Apop: For liberals, EVERYTHING is about racism. Weather, sitcoms, hair care, icebergs, road conditions, cereal choices, and the infield fly rule. It's simple, yet brilliant.

I have no idea why my simple, and self-evident, comment about running good candidates as a necessity for winning elections has morphed into comments regarding racism, States Rights, South America and the residual effects of slavery on the modernizing of cultures.

I know, I know, numbers can't be racist unless you start counting the number of racists, then that's racist because we all know they have the States Right to be racists if they really want to be.

Or maybe, just maybe, slaves and their descendants have specific, resolvable, and pertinent issues with the residual effects of Slave Culture as it continues to stubbornly resist the Americanizing force of the the cultural Melting Pot which improves and modernizes all cultures with hybrid vigor regardless of their place of origin, ethnic heritage, factual validity, or practical effectiveness.

Look at South America. They stubbornly held on to slavery longer than any other part of the New World European colonial diaspora. They are also the worse off, riddled by war, murder, drugs, gangs, and corruption.

It seems if we are to set the standard of excellence, the first step is the rejection of the policies of ignorance.

Re: “Schedule for Local Democrats' Reorganization Efforts

@ADE

Beats me why you took the trouble to post those "local political facts", none of which are pertinent to my comment.

Run good candidates and they get elected.

Run poor candidates and you will get your ass beat.

For example, running Judge Joe Brown for any office.

Seems pretty simple to me.

Good luck with your People's Convention, maybe the People's Convention will run Henri Brooks again for something?

Re: “Schedule for Local Democrats' Reorganization Efforts

Arlington Pop...

You seem to be suffering from a convenient loss memory in your OLD age. Your re-collection of some basic local political facts seem to be escaping you:
1) Memphis is at least 66% Black with non-partisan elections by law;
2) Shelby County (Memphis and six other cities) is 53% Black with some partisan elections;
3) Most Blacks (i.e. 92% unfortunately) are Democrats;
4) Most elected officials IN THIS County are WHITE REPUBLICANS
5) 52% of all jobs in this county are held by people who reside outside this county;
6) County government awards 88% of its contracts to a group (W/M) who is 14% of pop.;

For good measure here is a sampling of GOOD candidates who defy your logic for election:

Aug 2, 2016 - Longtime Republican District 95 state Rep. Curry Todd was arrested on a theft warrant

Feb 14, 2017 - Republican Tennessee State Representative Mark Lovell has resigned from his seat amid allegations of inappropriate sexual contact with a woman

Mar 20, 2017 - Republican Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich on Monday announced she agreed to a private reprimand in the prosecution of Noura ...

...it is time for another PEOPLES CONVENTION - FOR THE PEOPLE'S Majority!!1

@Cracko

Well, that and the fact that Shelby County Democrats have run mostly awful candidates the last couple of election cycles.

So this accounts for the great success of Shelby County Republicans?

Re: “Schedule for Local Democrats' Reorganization Efforts

The best thing to happen to Shelby County Republicans is the dysfunction, malfeasance & utter incompetence of the Shelby County Democratic Party.

Re: “Zaka Bowl Expands Menu, No Longer Vegan

It sounds like he was going to close unless he made the change, so your option is no restaurant like Zaka Bowl or one that serves two non-vegan items.

@crackoamerican - Considering Vaughn's prior experience, he'd probably be a good choice. But that dour expression may be nothing more than a prostate moment. It's hard to tell.

Re: “Schedule for Local Democrats' Reorganization Efforts

The TNDP Executive Committee at Nashville - NEVER convened a duly called meeting of its 71 members to address ANY grievances against the local Executive Committee.

Mary Mancini, the TNDP Executive Director, "consulted" with her choice of "selected" TNDP Executive Committee members and some members of the Shelby County Democratic Legislative delegation regarding her decision "to decertify" the local Executive Committee.

Now, she and her subset will have to endure the results of her decision.
