Re: “Policy Needs to be Set for Memphis Sand Aquifer

Memphis has access to some of the best water on the planet and they want to add poison to it before they send it to the resident's homes. Hydrofluorosilicic acid, extracted from the exhaust stacks of phosphate fertilizer plants, is extremely toxic but is added to Memphis water without regard for its safety. Memphis should be trying to keep its amazing water as PURE as possible instead of ruining it by adding unnecessary and poisonous additives.

Re: “Watergate II

Your commentary, however, certainly reminds me of a couple of my favorite quotes... Socrates said, When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser. One more, from my grandpa, yes, my grandpa, "Son, the ones hollering the loudest are usually the ones holding the weakest position."

Re: “Confederate Group Promises 'Swarthy Convict' Cellmate for Those Removing Statues

Depends.

Did Gump commit a massacre?

If he did, then yes.

I bet if it came out NBF was a child molester, everybody would turn their back on him. Instead he kills people who'd already surrendered in cold blood, and he gets a historically inaccurate statue.

What did Stalin say? One death is a tragedy, but many is just a statistic?

Of course, they tore those statues of Stalin down....

Re: “City Receives Grant to Enhance Diversity of City Vendors, Contractors

Roger Clegg,
Just curious, you may not be old enough, but if you were around back when this was the norm benefiting white males, were you or would you have been as aghast? And can you think of some means to interrupt the past discrimination that continues in momentum for those companies once so benefited?

Re: “City Receives Grant to Enhance Diversity of City Vendors, Contractors

How would you like it if you owned a company and lost out on a bid because you were the wrong color or the wrong sex? Why do race, ethnicity, and sex need to be considered at all in deciding who gets awarded a contract? It's good to make sure contracting programs are open to all, that bidding opportunities are widely publicized beforehand, and that no one gets discriminated against because of skin color, national origin, or sex. But that means no preferences because of skin color, etc. either--whether it's labeled a "set-aside," a "quota," or a "goal," since they all end up amounting to the same thing. Such discrimination is unfair and divisive; it breeds corruption and otherwise costs the taxpayers and businesses money to award a contract to someone other than the lowest bidder; and it's almost always illegalindeed, unconstitutionalto boot (see 42 U.S.C. section 1981 and this model brief: http://www.pacificlegal.org/document.doc?id=454 ). Those who insist on engaging in such discrimination deserve to be sued, and they will lose.

FUNK, if your last name was Gump, would you also change it?

Re: “Mayor: Greensward Deal Is a 'Win-Win-Win'

You libs are in a state of constant & ever-changing tirade about something. There goes that perception of daily cannabis users as being chill, relaxed, & easy-going. Let the grown-ups run things; y'all are free to loot, protest, & run about nekkid to your heart's content with Bob Marley's "No Woman, No Cry" blaring directly into your craniums.

LoveBC,

Gotta tell you, I'm sitting on about 500 years of familial Southern Heritage, very little of it involves shooting at US troops.

If my last name was Forrest, I would change it.

You don't see any of the Hitler family in Germany running around being proud of anything.

Re: “Mayor: Greensward Deal Is a 'Win-Win-Win'

Mayor does absolutely nothing to protect one of Memphis's best cultural assets, losing most of it in negotiations he had nothing to do with...

Calls solution "Win-Win-Win" and takes all credit.

Brilliant at the Bullshit indeed, just as promised in his campaign.

When are we going to hold the people behind the #turnofftheAC smear campaign accountable for getting this nashville-shill in office?

We could elect a barbecue sammich for mayor that would be better for the city, and it would probably be healthier than Strickland, too.

B, Forrest and Davis were both leaders in the democratic party, fast forward to today, and the present democrats were told to F off.

Re: “Confederate Group Promises 'Swarthy Convict' Cellmate for Those Removing Statues

So for years they have been trying to rewrite history and place themselves in the roles of patriots instead of the traitors they were and now that people are telling them to F off, they get a big sad?

Snowflakes.
