Re: “Governor Renews Push for Comprehensive Anti-Abortion Legislation

As long as "moderate" republicans who believe abortion should be legal (and there are many) keep voting "R" these forced-birthers will keep doing this. Republican primaries are a stampede race to prove who can be the most "severely conservative," so usually the R nominee is never any semblance of a moderate. Most people see "A Handmaid's Tale" as a frightening dystopian novel. These people see it as a guidebook.

Re: “Pence, in Memphis, Pays Homage to MLK and Touts Trump Accomplishments

Pence is a social conservative, just like all the social conservatives in the South, historically aligned with the southern Democratic Party who opposed MLK, excoriated King every chance they got, and opposed integration and equality. Those southern social conservatives left the Democratic Party when it embraced civil rights (starting in 1948 when Truman integrated the military and Hubert Humphrey gave an impassioned speech at the Democratic Convention in favor of a civil rights plank, which was adopted) for the Dixiecrat Party (Strom Thurmond-who fathered a child with a black woman (girl) on the down low) and then en masse for the GOP when Nixon ran with the Southern Strategy. Trump and Pence are the linear and ideological descendants of the Dixiecrats. States Rahts fo-evah!!!! Law and Ohdah!!!
See what good ol' Lee Atwater, burning in hell right now, had to say about all that.

Re: “Our Titans!(?)

Green Bay is a special case, it's owned by the community, they will never leave. It's a legacy team, been there for a century, literally 100 years. If Green Bay currently had no team in the NFL, they would never actually get one. It would be like putting an NFL team in Shreveport. Poor example. Lacks credibility.

Re: “Our Titans!(?)

Oh, there's no doubt a new stadium will be required at some point; after all, the current one is shockingly old and decrepit at 20 YEARS OF AGE. Can't expect patrons to put up with that level of deterioration. And put the new one in Manchester, Tn.

Re: “Our Titans!(?)

Yep, population of Tennessee: over 6 million. Population of Florida: over 21 million. Not a valid comparison.

Re: “Our Titans!(?)

The Grizzlies are legit, LL. Support them if you like pro sports. The NFL is never bestowing a team on Memphis. I would bet the Titans ownership has veto power over that ever happening and it doesn't matter anyway. There are other bigger, wealthier markets like St. Louis, San Diego, hell, Salt Lake City that would be in line before us. Let me repeat: Memphis will never get an NFL team. Our shot at that passed.
We have the NBA and a really exciting young Grizzlies team. The NBA is better in one big respect; there are over 40 home games to enjoy where the NFL has 8.
