She was one to overlook cognitive deficiencies.
Why would I listen to Nancy Reagan about anything?
I had a wonderful time dancing and got my pic taken for Memphis Flyer while sitting with a friend I made. Don't see my pic however.
Bricabrac, In this case even Nancy Reagan would say pop away. And I'm not just talking about soporifics.
Straight Shooter: I have to agree, this was a well written article. Although I appear to be on the right of most Flyer readers and staff, I do appreciate well written and researched articles.
@ Coby Smith, You are 100% right, but the #31 riders don't have slick presentations and palm grease like the developers.
Maybe Stevie can take a break from dissing J. Edgar and dismantling the Electoral College to get this route re-instated.
As per my earlier post, maybe some of the firms at Crosstown can buy bus passes for their employees to reduce parking congestion.
I doubt Crosstown is going to work, and also agree with you that this will be a boondoggle that will line the pockets of the developers more than the citizens. I sure hope I am proven wrong.
If we had more people riding bikes, we could reduce carbon output, increase the health of our citizenry, and traffic congestion.
The down down side of bike riding is the dangers of being hit by cars, and that one is also vulnerable to thugs.
I am a bike commuter and i wish I had more company.
Raging? That is a rather odd characterization of what I've written.
I sleep fine Oak, just fine, but it's nice that you care. Someone has to stay up and "keep the home fires burning" whilst the rest of you sleep, and I'm a natural for that. I usually don't sleep for more than 5 hours in a row and haven't since I was 3. The only way I've ever been able to change that is by heavy lifting or running for 12 to 14 hours every day. The doc always offers me drugs, but I just say no.
Back off mulch meat, Brichy needs sleep like a fish needs cabana pants, so I don't know why he hasn't returned them. But it will be a very good reason!
@Babs - Sleeping at night is better for you than raging on the internet.
Good to hear.
It would be great if the city provided more permanent racks around businesses or regular event locations on request.
Mama says someone replaced the vodka with water and I'm the one grounded!
PS my pills don't work either. See ya down by the slide.
Also, for the sake of GOD, do not allow the ex-democrats to to consider just what perverted values and assumptions would allow such a diligent, thoughtful, and conventional man to propose so perverse a plan as that you propose.
Offer to buy the ex-democrats a vacation to the beautiful town of Piedras Negras in Mexico. It may help to tell them that the ovens there are open for business.
Make sure that they know that everyone that thinks global warming is not happening will be dealt with harshly, and that the best solution (wink wink nod nod) to the population problem is, though a modest proposal, at hand quickly.
Tell the ex-democrats that lingerie is racist, Charlie. That'll bring 'em home. Go into an expensive retreat in the desert to get back in touch with yourself, Charlie, drink too much wine (snicker), call yourself a human trash can, and tweet the whole thing.
That will work.
Maybe you could offer to sell them baby part's, Charlie. Real cheap.
I forgot to add, Charlie, that all of the above goes over really well when almost everyone you are yelling at is either female, married to a female, born of a female, is some race other than white, is married to, or has dated, and/or has children or grandchildren that are of some race other than white or are mixed race. This is especially true in the Latino community given that Latino, by definition, includes any race whatever, and in the Muslim community, given the same, or in the Catholic, given the same, or to Christians as a whole, given the same.
It's as if the entire Democratic Party ideology is designed to appeal only to people that have little or no life experience (watching TV doesn't count) and little to no education.
I would suggest to you that offering people a 15 dollar minimum wage whilst calling them racist, white supremacist, sexist, bigots, and homophobes and offering to replace them with a lower wage worker from some other place on earth just won't work, especially if you are trying to take away their guns after you have run off all of the police in their neighborhood.
Perhaps you should try telling them that no one but a bigot would believe that the line of men a mile long that speak numerous languages other than English, brought here as children a few weeks ago, all with full beards, need a photo ID to vote. This works especially well when speaking to people that have to use a photo ID to do even the simplest of things, like buy alcohol or cigarettes, or stay in the movie theater after 6pm.
Mikey, you are correct, you can not help me.
You will just say any ole crap and assert everyone else is stupid because they don't understand you.
Sorry buddy, that's just not how communication works in America.
@Charlie Eppes, IMHO, the democratic party needs to be focused on working people. If I was a political consultant, I would recommend the $15 minimum wage out of all your options.
Abstractions, like global warming, gun control, etc. are hard to worry about when one is wondering how the rent is going to be paid.
I agree with your basic premise in that the democratic party on all levels appears to have ADHD.
