Re: “Blind Trust

Oak,
I think vampirism is quite common in foreign relations and its various ministers. Check out Kerry, Rice, Gromyko... Most dealings are done indoors with low lights.... I think we are onto something. Maybe Cruz is ideal.

Re: “Hornets 104, Grizzlies 85: Everybody('s) Hurts

With three games in the next four days, I'm already worried about tomorrow's game at Toronto. It has the feel of a 'sit everybody and take your whuppin' game. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Re: “Memphians Dominate Democratic Leadership Positions in State House

What doesn't scream out 'white working class', is any Democratic policy to cultivate their votes. That seems pretty clear. They won't even show the guy's face.

Re: “Blind Trust

@ern - I think Cheney is actually dead, and all we see on television is an articulated wax figure from Madame Tussaud. Or he may just be that pale because he is a vampire. In any event, he couldn't stand the heat of the full sun, and thus it is physically impossible for him to hold the office.

I'm just looking here, but what is it that doesn't scream out, white working class?

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.

Oh sorry I thought you lived in the district. Or maybe you just never get out.

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.
