Re: “Local Democratic Steering Committee Votes “No Confidence” in Chairman Bryan Carson

Clyde,
Surely you know the Flyer will never report on that. The flyer staff are members and fully support the SCDP and all that it does. they will never shed bad light on the SCDP.

Re: “Good Jobs Lost

Actually, upon reflection, my posts in this thread since last night match the MO of a high school student also. Sorry about that.

Pardon my mistake regarding nobody's identity. The MO matches, if not the username.

So is it true that embezzlement is in play?

Re: “Good Jobs Lost

What more could we expect when one of the top employers in the country is Walmart, whose only duty is to their shareholders? I think they made about $16 billion last year and their average full-time employee makes $25k a year. One of the largest employers in the country's employees are eligible for Federal relief benefits! America's middle class is being decimated. Thank heavens the 1 percent are comfy, though.

Re: “Government on Ice

An official state firearm?! And we can't get healthcare for for working poor of Tennessee? The ACA included numerous nods to interest groups to insure their support. For instance, "protection" for big pharma so that Medicare and Medicaid couldn't negeotiate better prescription drug rates. And Insure Tennessee fails because of Obama branding. The wealthiest 1 percent took their Bush tax cuts and invested it in pacs and special interest groups that have purchased our legislators and our democracy. Koch Brothers? Citizens United? NRA? Heaven help us.

Re: “Good Jobs Lost

All of Wendi's columns should be turned into epic novels so she can answer any possible question a grumpy old man could dream up. They obviously are incapable of making assumptions based on reason and need Wendi to spoon feed them the answers to every scenario.

Re: “Good Jobs Lost

nobody,
I'm the high school (almost) student. All those years of poppers have gotten grandpa a little loopy.
I imagine if Ms Thomas were writing an article, rather than a column, many of his questions would have been answered.

Re: “Group Devises Plan to Save Foote Homes from Destruction

Sounds like a good plan. I actually think the architecture is pretty. Just getting rid of the fence will make a huge difference.
And these original structures are certainly better built than anything that would take their place. Even with the hefty $100mil pricetag, the building materials would be cheap and corners would be cut in the process.

Re: “Good Jobs Lost

I never painted myself as a high school student. Can you please point out where that was?

Yes, you posed a legitimate, logical question that only a complete fucking idiot would not have considered. I, for one, did not think the woman in the article was a complete fucking idiot. So I just assumed that she had actually considered all of her options - not just the ones right under her nose.

Re: “Group Devises Plan to Save Foote Homes from Destruction

That's a pretty well understood concept. I'm surprised you don't know that given how strongly you feel about a cleaner Memphis

Re: “Good Jobs Lost

Great article, Ms. Thomas. I appreciate your efforts to remind a public who doesn't want to hear it, what is happening in the American labor market.

Re: “Good Jobs Lost

Nobody, I don't care to discuss anything with you, seeing as how you painted yourself as a high school student in another thread. But regarding your first sarcastic remark ...

I wasn't recommending anything to the lady in the article. I was posing a legitimate, logical question that Ms Thomas ignored or neglected to address. In my estimation, the article fails to reveal anything about loss of middle class jobs and a shrinking middle class because all that's revealed is this lady couldn't find similar employment in Memphis.

I'm sure that prospect has crossed everyone's mind who works in a technical field in the Mid-South. I think about it frequently. This isn't the West Coast or New England. It says more about Memphis than it does the middle class.

Re: “Good Jobs Lost

Been There,
I would imagine that the cost of relocating is less than the cost of 9 years of underemployment.

And as for age discrimination, I'm well over 45 and am sensitive to the issue. Yet Wendi's use of this lady is to make a point about loss of middle class jobs, not loss of middle age jobs.

Re: “Good Jobs Lost

@nobody

Good examples of what, exactly?

That good paying middle class jobs are being replaced with low paying jobs?

Yeah, I knew that already.

Was there another point you wanted to parse out?

Speaking of parsing perhaps you will be so kind to parse the Obama administration's claims the next time they most proudy proclaim they they have created 4 million jobs over the last several years.

With what, 36 months of sustained job growth?

You might parse out what kind of jobs they are proud of creating.
