Re: “Blind Trust

Yes I have a feeling Tom Price may be just the ticket. But I would feel even more prudent if Trump would dump Romney in favor of Dick Cheney.

Re: “Blind Trust

I agree with Thoughtful and AP. Prudence demands a wait and see approach.

Re: “Memphians Dominate Democratic Leadership Positions in State House

It's nice to see the young faces in that crowd. But you should have included a photo of Representative Fitzhugh. He is the lone survivor of a shrinking older, rural Democratic demographic, which the party needs to cultivate, if it wishes to retain relevance in Tennessee politics. What nobody is talking about publicly, as far as I am aware, is what to do about that.

Re: “Tiger Football: The Rising Continues

Wow. I didn't know a lot of those stats. Looks even more impressive when you line them up like that, Frank. You can get a sense for where we are with just the on field presence at games. But to fully take it in, you need the numbers. And those are some serious numbers.

Re: “SURJ Plans Protest, Boycott of Trump-Related Businesses on Black Friday

Well one thing is for sure. If Donald Trump, a billionaire, can sell himself to poor and middle class white folks there is still hope for me to sell them my idea of an Artificial Intelligence Invisible bridge and wall. Sure what is Donald Trump's intelligence if not artificial? The bridge is for those who need to travel over it to justify water and we're just going to throw in the wall to keep white folks out of Mexico. Spreading enough crap in America is enough. As for the women, Hispanics, and African-Americans that voted for Trump we will just continue to take up the Sunday collection.

Most of the district cares about J. Edgar's name being removed from the FBI building?

Brichy,
If people don't talk down to you they won't be able to talk to you at all. Are you expecting special treatment?
LoveBrichy,
You are largely right, but Cohen is doing his job. He represents the district and that's what most of the district wants. Should he ignore them like Hillary ignores the white working class?

Don't expect the democrats to quit talking down to people anytime soon. Look what just happened to me. It's all they've got.

Re: “SURJ Plans Protest, Boycott of Trump-Related Businesses on Black Friday

Yes Smitty, you are right. Donald cares about his ego, and Hillary cares about becoming a zillionaire.

Grove Reb, IMHO, the dems lost the working whites several years ago when they made him/her as someone to be scorned as backward Bible thumper and the oppressor of blacks, gays and women. HRC raised most of her money on the coasts, and forgot about flyover country and the rust belt. Yep, and now she has a bunch of unfilled quid pro quos. (take that Wall Street)

Locally, we have lil' Stevie getting on camera and being quite the drama queen trying to get Loretta Lynch to sic some federal attack dogs on the MPD officer because he shot an assaultive child molester. Last weekend, we had the SURJ clowns trying to lecture working white people on how bad they are because they are working white people.

My humble advice to the dems is to quit talking down to and disrespecting the white working class. It just cost them the presidency, and before that, in Tennessee the governorship and both houses.

Re: “SURJ Plans Protest, Boycott of Trump-Related Businesses on Black Friday

I believe that both parties are in the pocket of Wall Street or whomever comes up with the funds. The rest is just show (does anyone actually believe that Trump gives a rat's ass about working class people?) to keep the population divided. Bernie should have been the candidate of the non-repubs but it didn't happen.

Since when did Democrats become the party of Wall Street and Republicans become the party of the blue collar? This election was definitely upside down world.

mia,

Everybody knows that the democrats don't care at all about women or women's rights and certainly don't care about rape and assault of women, yet you expect everyone to act like they do.

Why is that?

Re: “Tigers 100, Iowa 92

I can't complain on their effort, I just wish they had won on Friday so we could have seen how they handled a team like Virginia. Win or lose it would have been a good RPI on a neutral court against a top 10 team.

LoveBC, again you with the "But Mom all the other kids are doing it." That kind of logic doesn't even play in the 3rd grade. But it does fit in with the rest of your post.

It's ashame that Trump doesn't have the same respect for women that Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy have shown over the years. I need to start putting /sarc. after some of my posts.

Re: “SURJ Plans Protest, Boycott of Trump-Related Businesses on Black Friday

LoveBC,
Why do you think the women are at the protest? Just to meet hippy chicks? Maybe in your sordid private moments. But Trump and the Republicans are threatening to take away what few venues for female health care exist. They can do that. They threaten to round up women dressed modestly in hijabs. They can do that. They threaten to separate women from their children. They can do that. And have.
Whatever pathology possesses you to reduce protests to sexual fantasies is right off the Trump bandwagon.

Re: “SURJ Plans Protest, Boycott of Trump-Related Businesses on Black Friday

You are right about the DNC being a joke, and I would further add they are a tool of Wall Street, no debate special interests invest in politicians.

I voted against Trump twice this election cycle. I remember all the things he said, and now he is backtracking. Looks like Hill is not going to jail after all for example. Then again, POTUS cannot lock up people.

Hill's significant other I believe agrees with the PG policy.

The protest was probably more of a hook-up opportunity to meet hippy chicks. Please see earlier posts. I don't agree with Flyer's commenters often, but they are dead on about hippy chicks. 'nough said.

I know the next national elections are 2018, but I was referencing the next POTUS election.

If SURJ wants to help, they got to stop blaming the 1%, which includes Hill and Obama for the social pathologies of poverty stricken AAs. Handing out government checks has not panned out, and the left needs to find workable solutions if they want to be taken seriously.

Re: “SURJ Plans Protest, Boycott of Trump-Related Businesses on Black Friday

LoveBC.

The protests are against those assuming power not the losers. The DNC is a joke and if they had made substantial threats they are in no position to carry them out. They are vulnerable to organizing within a system.

When Obama was elected he hadn't been saying he was going to take away people's guns and convert the nation to communism. That was manufactured.

Trump has himself s-a-i-d that he is going to round up and deport millions of people, throw others into internment camps, and outlaw gynecology while legalizing pussy grabbing (more or less). This was not manufactured but came out of his own poutty mouth. This is an actual threat that some people somehow seem to believe can be thwarted by shopping mall protests.

I don't know what you mean by pseudo protestors, if they are in fact protesting

Protesting involves organizing which addresses the future elections.

And the next national elections are 2018 not 2020.
