Re: “From Sea to Shining Sea ...

Now, more than ever, having a niche degree or skill though advanced education is necessary. Cowboy (or cowgirl) up and hit the books.

And, stay off my grass!! :)

Re: “From Sea to Shining Sea ...

Name one war the AR 15 was used in.
I had a classmate in junior high who's father was one of the last Rhodesian Army soldiers to lay down his rifle and it was a semi automatic because of an arms embargo that ensured the Rhodesians wouldn't get the same fully automatic weaponry as the Mugabe followers.

Re: “Coliseum Repair Cost Lower Than Previous Estimate

It would make a wonderful combined aviary-aquarium that would be the first step and eventual centerpiece for a relocated and updated Memphis Zoo.

Re: “'Pork Report' Targets Civil Rights Museum, Zoo, City Council

"...The report cited a recent Vanderbilt study..." All you need to know here folks. How much do you think Vanderbilt BILLED the Memphis City Council for this "study"? After all, Vanderbilt is a private university. Why didn't they consult UTCHS or the Univ. of Memphis? Or Rhodes College? Yeah, Rhodes is private, but heck, they're in the SAME damn town. Just WHO are the smug know-it-alls who decided that Pre-K programs do no good? You honestly think THEIR kids don't go to some private Pre-K program? Really?

No serious media should ever treat the Beacon Center as reliable or reputable. It is Koch Brothers light.

Re: “13 Percent of Tennesseans Without Broadband Internet Access

Certainly Dong, your internet preferences aren't to be extrapolated to everyone. Like it or not, America is online.

Wendi's gender reassignment to Bruce appears to have been successful. See you at Target.

Re: “13 Percent of Tennesseans Without Broadband Internet Access

To pt. A, I'm in agreement. to pt. B, how exactly are they most in need of access? They simply must have cute cat videos, porn, old Lost in Space episodes, and, well, the ability to read the drivel presented herein before hard copies are distributed? Those dang cat videos are engaging, so I concede that pt.

Re: “From Sea to Shining Sea ...

Comparing today with 1968 shows a lack of historical perspective. It's not even close. And Trump supporters being disenfranchised? Nope. The Republican party just nominated their guy. That is the opposite of being disenfranchised. Also, the "both sides" canard? That's just lazy.

Re: “From Sea to Shining Sea ...

You want some cheese with that whine....?
My goodness Sir, get a grip! Amazing how you can point the finger at why and how all your problems exist. Yet, never point a finger at yourself....It's them..!!
I for one am tired of hearing all the whines of you liberals. If it's that bad, do something about it like MOVE to another country. Or you could do something else...Like vote for the betterment of the nation, city, county & state from a 'what's best for us' and NOT what's best for me mentality. And, screen your candidate for moral value, not race or personal gain. Politicians buy votes with promises and tax dollars.... I'd say you're getting what you voted for!

Jim Webb is probably a Trump supporter.

Re: “'Pork Report' Targets Civil Rights Museum, Zoo, City Council

The part about Pre-K is complete bullshit. And I wonder what kind of things get funded in East Tenn. that folks from our end of the state will rarely see.....

Re: “Council Passes Final Greensward Agreement

Can't imagine why there should be such a long delay?

There'll be an election between now and then.

Re: “Election Preview: Behind the 8th Ball

We received an interesting campaign mailer from Brad Greer (whom I had barely heard of) in which he compares himself to 3 of his opponents. "One of Us vs...." Mark Luttrell pictured with President Obama, David Kustoff being appointed U.S. Attorney (not sure how that is a negative) and lastly, my BFF Brian Kelsey is shown in 3 photos and the last one is the most noteworthy. It has Kelsey taking a selfie in the mirror, wearing a Tennessee flag t-shirt, with some text that insinuates....well, I'll just quote it: "Brian Kelsey is 38, never married, no children, and ready to represent family values?"
I leave you to draw your own conclusions about "dog whistles" and such.

I wonder how much Cohen pays The Flyer to publish his crayon scribbling.

Re: “Council Passes Final Greensward Agreement

Approximately 2019!!! Really? I can't imagine the reasoning to delay so long. It's an insulting compromise to this situation.
