Re: “District 95 Showdown

@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.

This is a serious matter. I'd go with the one guy not smiling.

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.

Re: “Agricenter International

FLASE ADVERTISEMENT! This place is a disgrace to Chinese culture. It should be shut down due to the multipule fire, electrical, and food violations. Overpriced everything! Overpriced admission, food, games, gift shop, etc. The inflatables are disgusting and never cleaned, as well as everything else. So unless you and your children want to be sliding and playing in a cesspool of germs, stay away. Not to mention the staff is rude and uneducated. These people obviously have no clue what they are doing. Do not waste your time or money.

Re: “District 95 Showdown

People who swallow partisan talking points, without thinking about what they really mean, tend to oppose things that are actually good for them, or support things that are measurably bad for them. This cognitive dissonance is common on both extremes of the political spectrum and is related to the extent to which they allow ideology to override rational self examination.

Re: “District 95 Showdown

Infrastructure grows businesses and businesses create jobs, profits, and dividends. I fail to understand why so many are against the gas tax and lowering the food tax.

Excellent analysis, Mr. Lipe. Great to see the Grizz grind another one out.

Re: “Be Polite. Be Good.

These data provide evidence, that those of us recommending the body cameras, as a way to improve policing in Memphis, were correct in our assumptions. Frankly, I am quite pleased at their implementation so far. I still have questions about how the public obtains access to the video, when there are questions about police behavior, but overall, this is clearly a step forward in public policy.

Re: “Be Polite. Be Good.

Great editorial Bruce. The video camera doesn't just catch bad cops doing bad things....it also catches criminals making false statements about what cops did or didn't do to them. The camera works both ways. It is beneficial for a cop to wear a camera to protect them from slanderous accusations.

Re: “District 95 Showdown

jrgolden,

Hate it when I agree with you. Too much us v. them.

TN needs the buffer for the next down turn in the economy.

Infrastructure is in bad shape, the gas tax is a good idea as well as lowering the tax on food a bit.

Re: “District 95 Showdown

TN needs a good sized buffer of money in reserve. We will need that come the next down turn in the economy. The gas tax is a very good idea as we need to do a better job with keeping up infrastructure and lowering the tax on food a bit. I'm not a big tax and spend liberal, but it is past time to get or infrastructure in order.

jrgolden, I hate it when I agree with you. There is too much of the us v. them attitude.

jrgolden,
I meant to say "and don't slow down til I hit a squirrel" which pretty much defines reaching Midtown or plowing into the TN GOP delegation. (beavers notwithstanding)
