Re: “Nashville’s Silly Season

So I don't have to slow down now for those anti-abortion protestors when I turn into Planned Parenthood anymore? Ok.

Re: “Nashville’s Silly Season

What I find so galling is the mean spiritedness of the proceedings in Nashville. The more they profess their religious faith the more pious and evil they become. Never on display: God's mercy and love.

Re: “Renaissance and Resistance

Here it is: a fine reminder of the many talented people and organizations that make living in Memphis worthwhile during difficult times.

Kudos to the Flyer for giving Mr. Wiggins the space to remind us all.

Re: “Cohen Gets New Committee Assignment: Ethics

"ALJ2" auf Deutsch: dummkopf. Noch besser.

Hey, dummkopf: there can only be one "Fuhrer" in Washington, and your so-called president qualifies, little hands down. Verstehen Sie?

"ALJ"? A so-called administrative law judge, perhaps? It wouldn't be surprising.

Re: “Shelby Legislator Lovell Resigns

Agreed CL.

Modern day lynch mobs are tame by comparison. It's still shocking and scary to me to see how quickly someone can get railroaded for a fair, but maybe unpopular, political opinion.

On the sexual assault thing, it's something that hasn't historically been punished at the rate that it should. It still is a little concerning though that just an accusation can cause you to lose your job, even if the accusation is later proven false.

Now, in this particular case, since Lovell resigned, it leads me to believe there is at least something to these allegations.

Re: “How Smugglers Will Circumvent Trump's Wall

Agree CL. That's the one stumbling block in my plan. Neither party would support it because even if their friends'/cronies' businesses don't personally use illegal labor, they count on the low prices they get from suppliers due to the use of illegal labor.

No politician wants to actually punish the businesses doing the hiring, though if you're taking a purely economic view of the solution, that's how you'd do it. I like to step aside and live in my little utopia on occasion when I come up with plans for solutions that would actually work. Usually there is a reason they haven't/won't be implemented.

So ALJ2, you are against the US's best interests? This Putin romance of you guys is getting out of hand, wait wait, I've waited years to say this.... "Why don't you go back to Russia!"

Re: “Cohen Gets New Committee Assignment: Ethics

No higher standard bearer of ethics than a Jewish Congressman who refuses to publically recognize, much less condemn, a documented, proven case of genocide (the Armenians by the "peace-loving" Muslim Turks) because it isn't in the US's best interests!

Re: “Twitter Diplomacy

It doesn't matter to me if President Trump uses Twitter or not. As long as he builds the Wall, reinstates and enforces the laws of our free Republic, repeals the Marx-Gruber-Obama (un)Affordable Healthcare & Citizenry Control Act, cuts taxes, defends and follows the Constitution and protects my freedoms and liberties, he'll get my vote in 2020.

Anything else President Trump does is just insignificant and irrelevant fodder for debate among America haters, pro(re)gressives, socialists, communists, Democrats and a select group of university political science professors.

LoveBC,
If you are just going to make things up when there is more than enough reasons to condemn the Democrats, then no, you don't need to say more.

Re: “Cohen Gets New Committee Assignment: Ethics

@ CL, Steve was to busy trying to throw a former MPD officer under the bus to pull a nun away from said bus. AG Lynch was smart enough to see that Steve was just hamming it up for his constituents.

Granted politicians on both sides of the aisle are not known for their ethics, but I believe the democrats could have found someone more ethical (don't ask me to name any recommendations with their rapidly sinking #s) than Steve.

Getting back to my first point, it was highly immoral for Steve to use his powerful position to try to get the top AG in the country to further harm an officer that was just doing his job to apprehend a multi-state sexual molester that would still be alive if he obeyed the lawful commands of a commissioned police officer instead of going into attack mode. If a GJ cannot indict, further pursuit is just harassment. Also, making up the story of having an illegitimate child was way over the top and smacked of playing into the stereo-type of south Memphis streets filled to the brim with children of un-wed mothers.

Steve is probably the highest ranking democrat in Tennessee. His pro-criminal attitude, and continuing dis-respect of the white working class is continuing to make Tennessee increasingly red. Geez, this state went to Trump, need I say more?

Re: “Shelby Legislator Lovell Resigns

@ mejjep, naw, repubs are not known for strong moral ethics either. Ole Bill was just slick enough to get away with it. There is no way to prove it, but I suspect Hillary lost some votes because she touted feminist rhetoric but stood by her philandering husband and even attacked his victims.

Nobody has the right to sexually molest someone else.

Re: “Shelby Legislator Lovell Resigns

If the allegations of touching are true, Lovell was wrong. If true, Lovell should have fessed up, asked for forgiveness, and then resigned

If the allegations of touching are untrue, and Lovell resigned, he was wrong for resigning.

I hate to see him lose his morals the same way all those campaign signs disappeared into the trunk of a Mercedes.

Re: “How Smugglers Will Circumvent Trump's Wall

Did you know that people found to be living illegally in Mexico are fined at the rate of 100 days of pay at the minimum wage rate?

Did you know that in Mexico persons with no skills, experience or education would be allowed residence? They have a point system based on these three criteria.

Nightcrawler, Sam Nunn has agreed with your post in public. The 1992 version of Bill was smart enough to "triangulate"

Nick, the question you need to ask yourself is "What did BHO know and when did he know it?"
