Re: “Your Weekly Danziger

@NickR - Yeah, that's why I asked. And also why I said it's a false equivalency.

Re: “Your Weekly Danziger

OakTree, In the 60s I was more likely to be pushed in a stroller. But from what I've read or was told, waiting for the cultural consensus was wisely superseded and Legislative and Judicial was pushed ahead of the common will.

Re: “Your Weekly Danziger

@NickR - Yeah.. did some marching too. How about you? Seriously.
One thing to remember, is that the Executive doesn't make law.
Real change happens via Legislative means.
And Judicial interpretation thereof.

Re: “Your Weekly Danziger

OakTree, were you even alive in the 60's? "Executive control into areas where the cultural consensus hadn't jelled yet"

Re: “Your Weekly Danziger

@datGuy, @NickR - That's a false equivalency. Much of this debate has been caused by people hiking up the rhetoric, without actually looking at what the right thing to do for each individual is. Because each case is different, justice requires a more specific prescription within the law. There is no 'one size fits all' in law here, just like there is no such thing as only two sexes. This issue would have been better kept within the medical paradigm, instead of the courtroom.

Obama pushed his Executive control into areas where the cultural consensus hadn't jelled yet, so he got push-back, it's as simple as that. This is one of many examples where his administration chose confrontation instead of consensus building, and as a result, he got a backlash. Now, everything he did is likely to be undone.

For those of us who believe in fighting for real progress, this is a tactical misstep which could have been avoided. He wanted a fight, so now we've got one. And it was totally avoidable.

Re: “Your Weekly Danziger

Is equal rights for all "overreach"? I think not

If we left it up to the states, it would still be illegal for Caucasians and African Americans to marry throughout the Confederacy

Re: “Bike, Pedestrian Projects Win $2.2M in Grants

Electric bikes are a great (and cost effective) way to get around the city with this new bike infrastructure. However any place east of highland still feels risky.

Re: “Your Weekly Danziger

@CL - Actually, they've got the wrong AG in the cartoon. It should be Eric Holder. In case you don't remember, it was the Obama administration injecting itself into the issue, which caused 11 states to file federal lawsuits over Executive overreach in 2016.

If Obama hadn't done that, then none of this correction by the current Trump administration would even be happening.

It's tiresome to me how liberals seem to forget their own overreaches, and only want to notice it when it's the conservatives who are the perpetrators of the egregious behavior.

This oscillation between extremes is what is tearing the country apart. Sooner or later moderates like me are going to have to put both petulant parties in a corner for a timeout.

For their own good.

Re: “Busy Beavers

I'm quite sure cars that are bought and sold in Memphis don't have turn signals.

As for Beavers, is it any wonder someone with a name like that would be obsessed about sex.

Re: “Cops, Lottery, & Racism

I'm not in favor of a PILOT for the Belz's in this case. They really don't need any help staying in town. Hell, they probably own a third of it. And this project isn't unique enough to deserve a special tax incentive. If it doesn't stand on its own merits, let it fall. Real estate prices are rising in Midtown. Pretty soon there will be something that does make financial sense without us giving the Belz's more money.

Re: “Your Weekly Danziger

@CL - Not to diminish your point, but I've known women who could point and shoot just like men. Human urethral anatomy isn't really one or the other. It's more like a continuum, with ligaments and muscles that can be quite flexible in each particular humanoid.

Re: “Cops, Lottery, & Racism

Midtown Market Returns: I want a PILOT. My property tax bill is in the four figures. As a Memphis resident, I am upset that my county taxes do not benefit me much, but I still have to pay them.

Lottery fight: No two ways about it, the lottery targets mathematically unsophisticated poor people to exploit them to pay for the higher educations of the children of middle class people that have an understanding of math.

Race of Beale: Let Beale Street take care of itself. Bureaucracy only gums up the works.

Re: “Conservatives Have an Identity Problem. It's Called Their Identity

Grove,
Well, the local police are grabbing supposed immigrants off the streets in Oxford MS and expanding into bizarre traffic traps around town.
Weren't they supposed to exhaust the supply of immigrants before turning on citizens.
