I agree with LoveBC.
You don't need to see one of those fat statues to know that Trump has been completely exposed.
Good story. Surprisingly insightful. (That's not meant to be a back-handed compliment.) After reading the story, I regret that I never visited the Sports Junction. For me, the "hookah lounge" component conjured up a negative image that helped keep me away. Maybe that's largely a generational thing, given that I'm probably two or decades older than than most of this establishment's customers. Idk.
Say it ain't so. What will I do without you? Who else will understand your
Dusty Springfield references? Why do I feel suddenly obsolete? I do care what you do because I DO know you and I think you're a pillar of what makes Memphis great. Stay forever wonderful.
Earl, here's a news flash for you: The two candidates themselves -- John Kerry and Al Gore -- are most definitely not still complaining. Neither are the vast, vast majority of the Democrats you broadly impugn. Truth is Kerry and Gore graciously accepted the election results for the good of the country. As have all losing presidential candidates up until now. Your guy Trump seems to be too self-centered and small-minded to bring himself to do that.
Pretty sure legislators can be fired. And many of them should be.
I like Corker, and wish we had more senators, from both parties like him. He worked his way through UTK (i try not to hold that against him, Go Tigers) built a successful construction business, has only been married once, as far as I know and appears to be a good family man. He beat a democratic challenger from Memphis from a powerful political family with dubious morals.
I think Trump's problems stem from never having to start from the bottom. One of my former COs used to say, to be a good leader, you must first learn to be a good follower." Trump never really had to take direction since he was born at the top. He cannot appear to take direction and advice from his campaign staff. He is used to giving orders, not persuading. Employees of the Trump companies take orders to avoid being fired. Legislators cannot be fired.
Charlie Epps, we all need to vote for what we feel are the best candidates, and not worry about draining votes away from established parties that want to pigeon hole us into predictable blocs. In my experience, I have come to distrust big government and have seen the disasters of LBJ's Great Society as well as our nation getting bogged down in military quagmires. We don't need to do anything as radical as having a Euro type government, but just something simple, like term limits for congress. Our Founding Fathers did not mean for politics to become a career, but public service for a short term, and then back to the farm or commerce.
Corker is a little gray head full of nothing.
"Corker did not signal whether he would follow up with renunciation of his support of Trump or with some other demonstrative action if Trump failed to respond." LOL. Funniest thing I've read all day.
datGuy, well then, whom is fit for office? Although I am not a supporter of the Green Party, I do think it is imperative that we have real people in office instead of the phoneys we currently have "serving" us.
Will there be Union soldiers there to capture them and take them prisoner??????
Democrats are still complaining about John Kerry and Al Gore voting results. I guess it is OK for them.
At least my man, Gary Johnson has not said anything about not accepting the voters' wishes.
If an argument has merit, it doesn't matter where it comes from. Similarly, if an argument has no merit, it doesn't matter if it comes from your own family. It's wrong.
Also, the arguments of lawyers are not infinite, although it may feel that way sometimes. In reality, they tend to cease when there is no case. There is no case here, or there would be a case here. Obama clearly would like to see his nominees confirmed, so if he felt that he had a Constitutional argument, it would be ongoing. Maybe he will. He's a pretty smart guy. But he hasn't. So it appears Oaktree is right.
It is interesting to me that you discount even Harvard's journals when you disagree with them. They wouldn't have published an article that was simply partisan. Harvard is hardly a Liberty University, Jeff.
Perhaps you could provide an article from a similarly respected journal that supports your perspective. That would certainly stimulate an interesting discussion. I look forward to it.
How about someone opening a bookstore?
Had to wait until Bianca left to be able to write this!! I want all these things.
One should always take political (& other) advice from someone who has the good sense to ignore the Surgeon General's warnings & smoke for forty years.
Congrats, Bernard and Mary!!! How exciting!
Nobody stays dead in the funnybooks. And, for its many faults, the CW's power-inclusive universe-building is better than any comic book properties not on Netflix.
