Re: “Nashville’s Silly Season

Anybody file a bill this year to legalize cockfighting?

We had a lot of fun with that one a couple of years ago.

Re: “Nashville’s Silly Season

Of course Ms Kite, in fact there are profound advantageous to the cause of disruption if the troll is in need a check up from the neck up. They are relentless, their lack of direction makes them unmovable and when off their meds, tireless and fortunately for their families, the flame that burns twice as bright burns half as long.
So be sure to bill up front.

Dr Nick, can't a poster be a troll and still one banana short of a bunch?

Re: “#adaywithoutimmigrants in Memphis; Not Quantifiable, But Noticeable

Wonder how many illegal immigrants broke the law that day? Speeding tickets, citations, arrests, etc...? After all, "a day without immigrants" works both ways... a day without them working and a day without them breaking the law. It would be interesting to find out Flyer.

I see nick. You aren't able to pay for your Acthar any longer? Don't worry, it appears that the cost will soon come down to a much more reasonable level.

Re: “Nashville’s Silly Season

Class, as you can see trolling can sometimes be viewed as a psychiatric disorder and certainly there is some overlap. Further confusion is that they have the same intent and result in disrupting ordinary behaviors in others, in cases like Bric-a-Brac, assuaging a psycho-sexual need for attention. In the case of the average troll, well it's pretty much the same, but Bric-a-Brac presents the possibility of vast pharmaceutical profits and a further breakdown of intellectual exchange, that might question this profiteering.

But we can still have Dennis Rodman as ambassador to N Korea?

Re: “Shelby County Democrats to Revive

CL, that's nice. And while you're at it, can you toss me over one of those brews you have on ice?

Also, while re-reading your last post, the first point, banning anyone running for running for office whose name starts with cli, I think you should also have added rod. You can never be too careful.

Re: “Nashville’s Silly Season


Spare me the bullshit.

Which of the many denominations of modern christianity has as part of it's belief system something like sharia law. Please tell me all about it. Please. Show me a document or list of principals written by a noted christian denomination with a membership of over 20,000 people that are anything at all like sharia and it's 1,000,000,000 adherents in it's compulsion to slavery and conversion to the belief system and statements that unbelievers must either convert or die.

There are no such denominations, much less the whole of christianity. Your statement that there are such things are not backed by any evidence whatsoever. Show me that evidence.

As I've noted, you may find such things still in existence in Mexico, but as far as I understand the Pope does not support such activity.

Polish history month is October
German Heritage month September
French history month is July...
And so many more

So William, how many history months do white racists need? I want to know the aggrieved racists perspective.

Re: “UConn 65, Tigers 62

I just hope moving forward, that Tubby and his staff see how important it is to get those type of players into this urban University that can compete at a high level. I know he is a by the book guy, but you don't have to outright cheat to get players to Memphis, just be willing to stroke some egos.

Re: “Nashville’s Silly Season

Bric- keep up with the conversation. Your original comment regarding Sharia law (to which I responded) made no reference to just the US. It is obvious you decided only later to add the variable "in the US" because I pointed out to the ignorance of your original comment. Is that clear enough or should I use smaller words to make it easier for you? I would suggeest devoting even more of your life to commenting on the Flyer, but instead of typing, invest it excercising those critical reading skills.

Re: “Shelby County Democrats to Revive

GroveReb. Good points. In Tennessee over the past several election cycles, we went from Blanton to Alexander, Alexander to McWhiter, WcWhirter to Sundquist, Sundquist to Bredesen, and now Haslem. I don't see a state democrat taking control of the state big house, but I also believed that Trump would never win the Republican primary or the presidency so that shows you what I know. I cast my first vote for Alexander back when I was finally old enough to vote, and voted for each of the winners since. Yes, I have voted for democrats.

With Hillary probably out of the way, the dems may actually have a chance of winning the WH in four or eight years.

No doubt about it, most national Republicans are nervous about Trump. Some quietly, some not so quietly. Politicians probably understand the fickleness of the electorate more than the average bear. Personally, I think the establishment Republicans want him to fail sooner rather than later to keep your theory from coming true.

Re: “Shelby County Democrats to Revive

CL, I actually agree with most of those. Based on my government experience, with gigs in the Army, Federal civil service and state civil service, I have learned that the government has the gift to screw up all most anything. The Vietnam War, LBJ's Great Society, and the War on Drugs come immediately to mind.

I see the main problem as the insurance companies literally owning politicians at all levels of government. Obamacare was heavily influenced by the insurance companies, and that is a huge understatement. Gerry Spence, the Jackson Hole lawyer once opined that a US Congressman can be bought for $15,000, or the price of a used Mercedes. He further added a paid for congressman is one of the best investments a business can make.

Insurance companies and their paid for cronies would never allow nationalized health insurance.

One problem is the insurance companies stifle competition among themselves and the paid for politicians of both parties allow this to happen. No honest person can deny there is not collusion among health insurance providers, that drives up the price of insurance. We don't even come close to having a free market for health insurance. Until this is addressed, no nationalized insurance plan would ever be successful. I believe it would be a debacle like the guaranteed student loans which only encourage universities (collusion) to overcharge for tuition doing more than harm than good for our young people.

You, and me, and others allowed this mess to happen since we fail to hold politicians accountable for allowing the insurance companies to make politicians their bitches.

Re: “ArtsMemphis Combats Funding Threats

Why don't you run down the reasons we should care. I'm not being kneejerkish here. I have friends that are artists... lots. I'm just not sure why the government should pay for it.
Thanks in advance.
