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

Meanwhile Mayor Loeb's family, who's refusal to pay fair wages to black sanitation workers directly led to MLK's death, now own most of the prime real estate in the city.

Every time you spend money in a Loeb Property, you're insulting MLK's legacy.

Re: “Commercial Appeal Suspends Comments, For Now

I like it how suppressing the common person's access to the press is now considered some kind of moral good, as instead of, you know, an inalienable aspect of the constitutional bill of rights.

Frankly the whole "THEY'RE TRYING TO SILENCE US!" argument is the main thing that gives conspiracy theorists and their ilk any credibility in the first place.

The problem is people crave investigative journalism, and if journalists aren't going to do the work of speaking truth to power, the vacuum they leave behind will naturally fill itself with the Alex Jones's of this world.

Re: “Scooters Are Seasonal: Memphis Needs Year-Round Public Mass Transit

According to ALJ2, we should start charging for air for people to breath, because as long as air is free, people won't value it and pollute and ruin it.

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

Yeah, Strickland's brought "momentum" to Memphis, just like a rock, straight down.

Strickland, being from east memphis, just doesn't understand that you can't rely on suburban locusts to bring anything but an appetite for destruction when he invites them to town with open arms.

Memphis for Memphians. It's not a hard concept, but a supposedly smart man like our Mayor can't seem to understand it for the life of him.

The only way up for Memphis is higher wages for the people already living here. That means no more crappy Loeb plate scrubbing jobs. That means no more warehouse drudging. That means no more exploitation of labor. That means not laying off sanitation workers that have historically held the line against exploitation and denigration of the common Memphian.

Strickland's policies are going to lead Memphis to the same destruction Mayor Loeb's policies did: more murders of political figures, more crime, more shootings, more vacant and demolished downtown blight, more poverty, more exploitation of workers.

There won't be much of Memphis left after 3 more years of PILOTs, corporate bailouts, and street violence from both police and criminals.

Re: “'Pork Report' Takes Aim at FedEx, Wiseacre, Wharton, Bluff City Law

Nice to see Trashville's Pork Report still kicked AC Wharton for trying to stop Air BnB from gentrifying (and thus destroying) historic Castalia (where I also live).

AC hasn't been mayor in years, but Trashville all wants us to hate him so we'll support Loeb's pet boy Jim "pothole" Strickland, kind of like how how Trump is still kicking Obama three years after his presidency.

The real question here is why the Memphis Flyer is giving a platform to Nashville's anti-Memphis propaganda.
