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?

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.

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

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.

A little amazing that Rep. Pig Manure (R-Dresden) finds anything short of 800,000 gallons of waste disgusting.

Re: “A-Tan

A-Tan is a casual restaurant that has much better than average food. We especially like the hibachi meals. Two adults with shrimp , fried rice, and soup (water to drink) and the bill before tip was $20.00 total.. the service was excellent and the staff very friendly and attentive . The in house sauces were terrific . We have been back several times and always enjoy ourselves

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

farmer guy,
Serving the inner city, gardens, natural states, I think we know who the hippie is here. You guys just don't give up. Well now that Putin is sleeping in the Lincoln Bedroom I guess farm subsidies will skyrocket and the girl scouts will come out with hashish cookies. Parking spaces for everybody!

Re: “Meeting Airs Facts, Opinions, Emotions, Theories About Turner Dairy Project

@Ifine

So... how do we get milk pasteurized and homogenized for public consumption without dairies?

Or are you more offended that I'm implying that animal products such as milk are appropriate for children?

I keep forgetting milk isn't vegan.
