Re: “Tribes

"The Founding Fathers believed in individual human worth and dignity [for rich white men]."

Let's not get too teary-eyed over the "saintliness" of the founding fathers. This country was founded on racism and misogyny. To some extent, our boorish, amoral president is kind of the logical conclusion of their worst impulses.

Re: “Dream Denied: Corporations Buying Up Memphis Homes, Destabilizing Neighborhoods

Willy, this isn't Capitalism run amok though. This is Capitalism working exactly the way it's supposed to.

The problem isn't that we're doing bad Capitalism. The problem is that we're doing Capitalism.

Re: “Mayor: Memphis in May Will Return to Tom Lee Park Next Year

This is headline is lousy. It's not newsworthy that Memphis in May will remain in Tom Lee Park, as it always has, next year. What's newsworthy is that Strickland is moving the festival in 2021. Shame on y'all for carrying water for Strickland's campaign.

Re: “Taxing and Spending

Richard,

That's the most misogynistic blathering I've read so far this year.

Great job, asshole!
