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

Heres hoping the "Save the Greensward" folks have the ability to support a progressive set of candidates in the next council elections. Remember, the Chamber of Commerce asked to not receive funding from the city for one purpose. To funnel cash into the campaigns of people who will do their bidding. Berlin Boyd, for example, was funded by the Chamber and a handful of good ole boy white male Republicans.

@brichy

You're super scared we might let Frayser loose on the county, aren't you?

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

Interesting definition of "compromise:" Have victims of infringers pay for infringer's parking lot. Only in Memphis would this be considered a compromise. This guy. Let's hope no vote split next mayoral election.

The Brushy Mountain Penitentiary has been closed since 2009. It is in the process of being converted to a distillery and concert venue. Lee Millar, threatens us with a night of drinking Tennessee Whiskey and dancing. I'm so scared...

Re: “Watergate II

Fortunately, reading and seeing aren't the same thing.

At times like this Iwonder if anyone else has a dictionary.

Imply: the existence of something not expressly stated.

Infer: Deduce from evidence rather than explicit statements.

See Depp.

Re: “The Grave Mystery at Shelby Farms

Awesome, interesting article! I want to go check this place out now! I love history and ghost stories, especially when they are located on my home town. I have never heard or read about any of this and I have been on this earth since 1961. Thanks everyone for all of this intriguing information!

Re: “Memphis to Receive Support for Fighting Violent Crime

I agree that all life is of incalculable value. That being said, I don't think that taking hard earned value ($$$) from one person via force, which is what law is, and then giving it to another, for whatever purpose, increases the value of the recipient or of the person taking the hard earned value ($$$) nor of the person from which the hard earned value was taken.

Perhaps the value of labor would rise if there were shorter lines for the work. Of course, recognizing that open borders lead to falling wages, however obvious, doesn't seem to be a part of anyone's calculations regarding this subject.

Re: “Watergate II

On the other hand, it could be that I recognize that Cambodia's weak border policy led to the bombing in Cambodia. You don't have to like that I recognize this fact. You don't have to like that I infer something. You don't have to recognize the implication embedded within statements made by a comment for the implication to exist and for me to notice said implication and infer from that implication. Let's all thank god for these facts!

Re: “Watergate II

I finally understand the whole "fake news" thing. Morons label anything they don't understand as fake. For example, moron above inferred something that wasn't implied. Instead of acknowledging an error in cognition, his feeble brain just screams "fake, fake, fake!"

Re: “Frayser to Have New Grocery-Anchored Shopping Center

@apok

If we deannex the entire city and surrender the charter to the county altogether, the same thing that happened to the school system will happen again. People don't move out of deannexed areas because they're deannexed. They move TO them because they're deannexed.

Re: “Memphis to Receive Support for Fighting Violent Crime

That's a pretty impressive conglomeration of straw man and ad hominem fallacies you have there, @barf.

There is only one way to recognize the value of a life: willingly pay it.

And this, ultimately, is what you refuse to even consider.

The concept is pretty well thought out. You just don't want to read it because it might change your mind about how you treat others.

Re: “A Compromised Greensward “Solution”

Kyle Veazey just made a monumental and idiotic mistake in his statement. Based on his own words, the conceptual footprint is not the governing document. That means that the footprint of the parking lot could in fact be MUCH LARGER than that shown in the public document. There is nothing in place preventing such a design from being proposed. We wont know what portion of the Greensward will be paved until a private design firm, entirely controlled and informed by the same city government that deemed it prudent to so readily relinquish so much of the Greensward to the Zoo at various points in this process, provides us the complete design. Perhaps it is no coincidence that the design firm was already heavily involved in numerous contracts with the Citys Engineering Department, the dog in your lap is worth 2 on the run.

Sounds like Veazey and Sean Spicer took the same online public communications class.

Re: “Memphis to Receive Support for Fighting Violent Crime

"When I say"... translation: I did a piss poor job of explaining a a poorly developer concept the first time, so let me change it by saying something else. You did nothing to address my points regarding the fact that you apparently believe that the lives of those who do not earn an income apparently hold no value, so the rest of your comment is worthless. Your posts also indicate that any value you place on your own life is entirely dependent on your income which in turn is largely dependent on the everchanging whims of our economic system (the man and whitey). No wonder you are so frustrated, your value changes daily based on international exchange rates and future GDP forecasts. Let there be no doubt though, the only individual on the Flyer site that is consistently dragging your feet, griping, complaining, and whining via their posts is staring at you in the mirror. It is a sad and pathetic existence, you have my sympathy.

Re: “A Compromised Greensward “Solution”

Mr. Veazey, conceptual in nature and telling of the mindset of those who care not about the green space the zoo is being allowed to steal.
