Oh. Wait. They still do that in Mexico don't they?

Thanks barf. They force people to convert to Catholicism in Mexico.

Re: “Nashville’s Silly Season

Nick,

Congratulations, you've just diagnosed a software program that is used to run this website, given that software is why my post ended up here twice. It even generated an error message telling me that I needed to try again because there was some form of error.

Re: “Nashville’s Silly Season

barf,

Then I guess I will have to point out that I did ask you only about the US, but I would like to know where on earth there is a tax imposed on non christians by a government that is doing so in the name of christianity. I would also like to know, where on earth there is a government that insist all non christians convert to christianity, or be killed.

The last one that I am aware of was Mexico at some point like 50 years ago. No shit.

Where is this place now?

Re: “Nashville’s Silly Season

I guess I will have to spell it out for you Bric: YES, Christianity is doing that- present tense. Maybe not in your backyard, but it is occurring in various locations across the globe.
Some would contend that it is even occurring in the United States, but that is perhaps up for debate.

Re: “River Records' Jerry Gibson Killed in Store

Thought of Jerry tonight and looked this up again to see if the pos that did this was ever caught. I can't seem to find anything about an arrest. I hope they find whoever did this.

Re: “Make Art Great Again

freedom of speech, freedom to create art, is one of the corner stones of our republic. when that part of our culture, has been watered down, or revoked, then we end up like the former U.S.S.R.

I'm glad that people/artists are voicing their opinions, or the current state of affairs...as for the usual comments about Black History Month, I'm glad it happens every FEB, and I've learned a lot about the struggles that Black America has gone thru...but the overall whining about why it isn't more mainstream, gets tiring...after all, where is Polish culture month? white culture? or better yet, asian or hispanic month(s) as for trump, remember almost 60 million people, voted him in, instead of Hillary Clinton, many really, do not like President Trump, but chose to diss him, and disrespect him...

Re: “Nashville’s Silly Season

MS Kite, We changed the diagnosis from manic-depression to bi-polar due to frequent substitution of anger for depression although of course the behaviors usually manifest from the same causation. Stuttering is as you can see, not uncommon. The reaction formation is a successful attempt to avoid reflection by deflection. If you continue to ask him questions his anxiety level will rise until which time he is again banished from this site and must undergo a very superficial identity change while maintaining his core pathology. So sit back and observe, a human subject is considerably more entertaining than a rat nor as sympathetic as a monkey

Got it Mia. There haven't been any church bombings in Tennessee, except for in your fantasies.

Bricabrac, Of course you did, but then you miss so much. And since you don't care why should any of us clue you in. Ask nice.

Re: “Nashville’s Silly Season

Barf,

That's right, I wrote that christianity doesn't do that. Since you clearly do not appear to know that "doesn't" is present tense I've decided to clarify that for you here.

Re: “Nashville’s Silly Season

Mia,

You are so TOTALLY clueless, which isn't funny. Can you tell me anything at all about those church bombings in Tennessee? I might have missed the news reports.

Re: “UConn 65, Tigers 62

Salim, I agree. The chances are slim-to-none for the NCAAs. The way this season is looking, though, I'll be happy with the NIT. One step at a time...

Re: “UConn 65, Tigers 62

Yeah, Strait, you're right. My "How?" was also a comment on the season as a whole--not just this game. But, as for this game: There is NO good reason or excuse to blow a 17-point lead...NONE. I'm not throwing Tubby overboard. I know this is his first year and he has some work ahead of him; but, again, this blown lead was a horrendous display of basketball talent...or lack, thereof.

Re: “Nashville’s Silly Season

Bric,
Regarding "What is your point?" You said: "Christianity doesn't do that". I simply pointed out that Christianity has and continues to exhibit its own instances equal to "convert, pay jizya, or be killed".
While my personal religious beliefs are those of a conservative christian, I do not ignore actions committed in the name of Christianity by professed christians.

Re: “Marketing Fear

Steve,
Thank you for expressing so clearly this viewpoint which I happen to share. I would really like to restore MPD's benefits along with a pay raise in excess of any reduction made over the last several years. However, the MPA's tactics make my support for such actions impossible. They are actively undermining the very investments and tax base that would fund such benefits which in turn makes it even more difficult for city hall to provide additional financial support.

Even if the MPA were correct (which they are not) in directly correlating the # of cops with the city's crime rate, their message still undermines their goal. When MPD pay and benefits were at a level being sought by the MPA, Memphis was still saddled with one of the (at times THE) highest violent crime rates in the nation. Saying I have a choice between paying more or less, yet this city will still be one of the most violent places in the US is hardly a convincing argument.

Re: “UConn 65, Tigers 62

David, I think the how is easy. Simply put, the Tigers don't have many -- if any!!! -- thoroughbreds. Not much firepower. It's been a long time since Memphis has trotted out a basketball team so bereft of raw athletes and/or skilled basketball players. But I don't blame it on Tubby Smith. At least not yet. Given him another or year or two to at least moderately upgrade the talent and continue to coach up that talent.
