You know, you are right.
This is a progressive news site.
Why should I be spending any time here at all?
I cannot think of a good reason.
Thanks for the wake up call.
I thought the victory of the suburbs to establish the right to administer their own schools was pretty significant, to my life at least.
I thought the passage of the Voter ID law, as yet unchallenged, was pretty significant.
The upcoming legislature, which will see a remake of annexation law and, I suspect, the introduction of a voucher bill, seems to portend some pretty significant stuff to all Tennesseans.
All those things don't seem like shallow victories to me, but if you think so...
Although I do wish the legislature would take up something about cock-fighting. That was one of the most entertaining threads on the board last year. I forget the yokel who introduced that bill last session, but I will be happy to e-mail him and ask for a repeat.
I do notice that the threat of a federal judge intervening in our affairs does seem a bit of a hollw threat.
As in all that federal action on our schools got the SCC nothing but a one year delay. And if I may share, the suburbs would have not been ready to open last year. It would have been a real zoo, making the opening of the merged system look like a cakewalk. Thank God Judge Mays delayed it a year. Not that anybody from the suburbs hinted in his private meetings anything of the sort. Nope.
I am interested in an update on the Justice Department and the US Depatment of Education's intentions to intervene in the Municipal Schools case. It has been a while since you have mentioned that. What is new? Did you ever go to the Justice Department yourself as you said you might? Is the very scary NAACP planning to get involved?
Give us an update.
Not disputing it does.
Its just that so many charges of election fraud are made, it is hard to separate what may be true and what is false.
If votes are being added under any cover whatsoever, I certain hope the aggrevied party, whether it is a losing candidate, the losing party, or some other group insist that an investigation be made.
So many charges fly around at election time, from so many directions, with so many accusations, how is anybody supposed to know that is just political bullshit and what may be true?
Guess I cannot make the link between voter fraud and gerrymandering. One is absolutely a felony, a violation of federal law and cannot be committted without some sort of conspiracy. I don't know anything about the Senator's race. Was the allegation of voter fraud investigated?
I agree with you. Lets fully implement ACA and see what happens.
I which case, my good sir, based on my on-line experience with you and the tremendous credibility you have earned I will yield the point.
I yield. I do appreciate the way you presented your case. I was wrong and you were correct all along.
Outright computerized theft of votes?
My God. That woud be a fraud and a felony, and a blemish on all our our constitutional rights.
Have you contacted the Federal District Attorney? Stealing votes in a crime an the malefactors need to be identified and brought to trial. Surely those 'midnight surges" in Republican votes can be easy identified. if you, an average citizen, can do it, the government, with all their investigative resources can too.
Have you notified Steve Cohen so he can make another one of his tiresome calls for a Justice Department investigation. Maybe we can bing in Ophelia Ford asa consultant. Surely Mr. Attorney General is not aware of these nefarious deeds or he would be all over it.
