Re: “Cohen Demands Hearing on Use of Force by Ferguson Law Enforcement

Governor Nixon here, and I just want to say, I am really hurt that you took my kind gesture to have my men stand down, only for you to take advantage. Now, I have no choice but to use overwhelming force, which I now understand is exactly what SWAT was doing before I interfered.

Michael Brown was a punk, and I never go to Ferguson without a couple of flashbangs in my pocket. Did I say that out loud?

When I'm feeling constipated, I drink a lot of cheap wine.

Re: “Looking Back at Flyer Story About a "Religious Freedom" Protest in Mississippi.

That's okay CHG. That's probably how people sanction anything they want from the Bible too.

Give it a try: But I say unto you, that whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her, rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven.

Re: “Letter From the Editor

I'm a little slow, but I think I get the gist: Red states like briefs, blue states prefer boxers, and those crazy independents are just out there catching every breeze letting ol' freedom ring.

Re: “Here's the Judicial Poll That Counts! from the Memphis Bar Association

Geri is correct.
People like a winner. The people who conduct these polls know all about the "bandwagon effect": When a candidate is shown to be winning, that in itself generates votes.

That is why there are so many PHONY polls and surveys. They aren't all showing you how Americans are thinking or voting. They are actually swaying your vote and subtly influencing your thinking. They show you what the majority thinks (true or false) so that you will remember, and you DO remember, and act accordingly.
That's why Romney was favored to win (because he wasn't).

Not saying there aren't any REAL polls left, but Jesus wept, why would you believe a bunch of lawyers? I will never take a poll seriously again.

Re: “Letter From the Editor

Even if you only help the women, you would be importing the problem because they will raise their children the only way they've ever known. But we all know, it won't be just the women.

Many liberals are not liberal on this issue.
God bless Jan Brewer, the only Republican worth spit.

Re: “Letter From the Editor

This is like telling someone you have an extra room if they need a place to stay, and the next day, their entire family, and their family's family, and all their friends are camped on your lawn.

At what point are we the ones abused?
