Re: “Sierra Club Protests Trump's EPA Choice

Protesting is a great way to show your feelings.

Deep research into things they've done online to make them radioactive to the Republican party....a priceless goldmine.

Re: “Redbirds Rebrand

I should have known when I bought a home, road and alternate New Era 59/50 official fitted caps at Christmas for $10 apiece (instead of $40) that something was up. I felt like the cat that ate the canary buying those. Now, I'm already outdated. Que Sera Sera.
The new stuff looks great though.
Watch for some great 'retro' Redbirds official merchandise on Ebay soon!

Re: “The Only Two Questions That Matter

@Bruce he forgot a whole bunch actually. No safe places, no suck it up buttercups, and no libtards either. He's a mere shadow of the true scions of conservativism like the writers over Breitbart, that we need and clearly could benefit from here at the Memphis Flyer. "sad".

Re: “The Only Two Questions That Matter

John Lewis has become the antithesis of the great Martin Luther King. He deserves to be brought up short for taking Kings cause in the wrong direction. Love, not hate, will eventually win the day if the day is to be won. I wish this message wasn't so difficult for some to get their heads around. King wanted to bring people together not dived them in hatred.

Boy, that's some high-quality sarcasm, Ducky. You forgot to throw in "special snowflake," though, so points off there.

Re: “The Only Two Questions That Matter

If any of you depressed/suicidal MF readers require assistance packing your Che Guevera tee-shirts, your vaporizers, your "I'm with HER" & "BLM" posters & sundries into your hemp sacks for your sworn move to some Canadien hostel/commune, please let us know. Glad to help you brave SJW's in this worthy enterprise.

Re: “The Only Two Questions That Matter

It's only a conspiracy if they bothered to hide what they were doing.

Otherwise, it's just a plan.

Re: “Cohen Won't Attend Trump Inauguration

#@&^*Oak: why can't you just be satisfied posting your nihilistic, anti-establishmentarian, pro-
Trumpian drivel as your alter ego on the CA's comment forum?

P.S, Your use of the @ to address commenters here makes me wonder whether you're aware that this isn't Twitter. That's OK, though; your idol probably wouldn't realize it either.

Re: “The MLGW Groundhog

If county representation on MLGW's board will inject a note of sanity in that abysmally mismanaged entity, I'm all for it---as long as the representative isn't Terry Roland.

Re: “Fresh Air

The history of emissions standards in Memphis is actually pretty interesting.

Boss Crump has been credited as the force that originally brought emissions standards to Memphis in contravention to the suburbanizing interests of automobile makers. I can't recall where I heard the phrase "Cadillac City," but it's too good of a buzzword to leave out. By keeping low quality vehicles off the road, Crump made it impossible for the poor to escape city taxes and flee to the suburbs.

Later this policy was perverted by the State government who has always held a grudge against the Crump Political Machine for dominating state politics. They used this restriction to drive people out of Memphis, as 2/3's of Memphis suburbs lie outside the state lines and leak tax revenues into Arkansas and Mississippi. Obviously the State government in Nashville wanted this money for themselves. By forcing people to register their vehicles outside Memphis in order to avoid emissions, even people who did in fact live in Memphis would list their address (and thus their voting district) in another area.

Suburbs thrived, cars sold like hotcakes, and Memphis languished, especially after the Civil Rights Bus Boycott was used to justify defunding public transit.
