Re: “Polite East Memphis Demonstration Goes Unnoticed

BP45,
The parody is about those people who believe protests should be quiet, polite and non-disruptive.
It is unintentionally educational in that I always thought Tuckahoe Rd was the entrance to the Batcave.

Pretty sure that's not what it's about.

Re: “Protest at Graceland Remains Peaceful

Memphis still part of the still racist south. You would think the leaders in Memphis would be smart enough, to not anyone block off a public street and not allow black people access to the public street. Things haven't changed much since 1968 in Memphis, only difference blacks are the majority, but powerful white men still make the rules.

Re: “Donald the Great

@CL

Yeah, I guess it is. I think what might have changed is that candidates are much more brazen about it these days. What used to be disqualifying and downright awful behavior has become acceptable. How do each candidate's supporters continue to vigorously defend the misstatements, lies and in Trumps' case his outrageously immoral utterances? How did defending these things ever become acceptable? Mr. Obama looked us in the face and blatantly lied about the ACA. Not the first Present in recent memory to do that, either. Yet, there are people who will defend them as a lionesses defends their cubs. Tribes, you think?

I love a parody about people trying to improve the lives of poor, black, urban poor. Hilarious.

This city, run by a powerful cabal of old white rich Republican men needs more protests.

Re: “Donald the Great

Pack,
We are being played, maybe no more than usual, but much more crudely. Bad cop, insane cop.
APop,
Ain't it part of the job description. I imagine Carter lied to us, and if I had half the brain he does, I could readily summon up a for instance.

Re: “Donald the Great

BB's, CL. That's all he's got. If he were as vigorous in going after, say, Cheney or Bush for their offenses he might have some standing. It's a crying shame that Hillary and Bill have gotten away with murdering so many people yet, and the GOP has been after them for 25 years, yet no charges, no indictments, and no convictions. The best they could do was catch Slick lying about getting a hummer from the fat chick in the secretarial pool. High crimes and misdemeanors indeed.
Hillary is a flawed candidate, but her flaws are within the bounds of what we've experienced in many presidents in our history. Bush, Reagan, LBJ, Kennedy, etc. She's not my ideal choice by any stretch. But Trump is so outside of the normative bounds of what is required to be POTUS, he is completely disqualified from the job. Unfit by temperament, skill, and intelligence. And speaking of health issues, since the Hannity bots are all over that right now, isn't Trump giving indications of early stage Alzheimer's? I have a very good brain and many people say that any observant, logical person would see this, believe me! Hey, I'm just asking questions.

Re: “Polite East Memphis Demonstration Goes Unnoticed

Tuckahoe and Shady Grove both run E/W and essentially become one another at South Grove Park (with a little R/L dogleg). So the last short stretch to Perkins was technically on Shady Grove, but still a straight shot and primarily a march down Tuckahoe. All other details are correct.

Re: “Donald the Great

@Cl

I agree, CL

The operative point, I guess: politicians capable of lying are quite capable of lying to their supporters as well.

As ALJ2 points out, she is also quite capable of saying one thing and doing another, too.

Which is no endorsement of Donald Trump, a moral pygmy with trust issues arguably as great or greater than Ms Clinton.

It's not like Clinton ain't giving the two dimensional ALJ2 all the ammo he needs.

So glad for them. They were originally in Bartlett near me, but all of a sudden they were gone. So glad the business survived and is thriving.

Re: “Polite East Memphis Demonstration Goes Unnoticed

1) Tuckahoe Road only goes to Shady Grove. It's doesn't connect with South Perkins

2) Stuffy white people go to Local on the Square, not Bar Louie

I'm all in favor of parody, but comedy is in the details.

Re: “Donald the Great

Which Hillary do we discuss?
The Hillary who's all about women's rights and says maybe we should ignore the presumption of innocence against men accused of sexual harassment - or the Hillary who laughed about trashing a rape victim on the stand and has supported her husband in her sham marriage after decades of his harassment and exploitation of women?
The Hillary who is so concerned about the poor and downtrodden - or the Hillary who gave every penny of her charitable contributions last year to the Clinton Family Foundation and the group that puts on their events (and who once took a $60 tax deduction for a used shower curtain)?
The Hillary that feels our pain - or the Hillary that got $200,000 for a 20 minute speech to Wall Street oligarchs behind closed doors (and refuses to release a transcript), and spent $millions on a New York luxury apartment for her daughter?
The Hillary who is a ferocious advocate of public education - or the Hillary who sent her own child to one of the nation's most exclusive - and expensive - private schools.
The Hillary who emailed her daughter that Benghazi was a terrorist attack - or the Hillary who then told the nation it was just a riot caused by a Western movie about Muslims?
The Hillary who swore her deleted emails did NOT contain work-related material - or the Hillary whose thousands of deleted work-related emails have been now been recovered by the FBI and State Department (and whose emails the FBI say DID include classified material despite her continued pathological denials)?
The Hillary who continues to repeat that the FBI found she was truthful - or the Hillary whom the FBI Director said could not prove she lied in her testimony and cites point after point about her email stories that are false?
Hillary has learned well from Bill (and Barrack): promise the masses and the party faithful whatever they want (like closing Gitmo and all troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan) and then live and do as you please - and the masses (and a non-diverse, biased media) will ignore and/or excuse, and promptly move back to hating the "evil" Republicans. Just as somehow they can blame Nixon and Republican warmongers for the Kennedy-Johnson War in Vietnam.

Re: “How It Happened in the 8th District

In 2002 it was Ed Bryant (R-Henderson) who was not running for re-election in the 7th in order to run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Fred Thompson. Don Sundquist in 2002 was in his last term as Governor and had not sought re-election to the 7th since 1994 when he was elected Governor. Granted, in political terms, Ed Bryant has become rather forgettable.

Lies. The only people that matter are those who can idenify Bootsy Collins in a lineup without his costumery.
