Re: “Immigration Struggles: What Gives You Hope?

Gee, Cracker, and here I was starting to think you didn't care any more.

It was kind of you to take some time off pulling the wings off butterflies and kicking puppies to once again ridicule a senior citizen with multiple disabilities (none of which have anything to do with being "distracted"). Someone who is literally one hospital visit away from bankruptcy (with or without an $800+ bill from the City for a one mile ambulance ride), while bigoted "activists" want to shower $billions on illegals who have never lived a day here, never paid a dime in taxes, have no marketable job skills, and wantonly violate our laws.

Have a nice day.

PS - I work every Monday through Friday except for five holidays and vacation, and some Saturdays as needed, but I was off work yesterday. I just woke up at 5:00am out of habit. As usual, you won't let your ignorance or the facts interfere with your petty, mean-spirited insults.

Re: “Immigration Struggles: What Gives You Hope?

As I get my senior citizen, disabled self out of bed at 5:00am 5-6 days a week to get ready for another day of work, I frequently ponder the question: If this country and it's considerable majority of white, heterosexuals is so bad, why do millions of supposedly wonderful people in supposedly wonderful places want to break the law, and even endanger their and their children's lives, and come here?

And, if activists are really concerned about the truly poor and downtrodden, why don't they take their pampered, spoiled selves to places that millions of people are trying to leave and fix those countries?

Re: “Man Arrested for Recording Police Interaction at Mall

State and local law allow private property owners to tell people to leave their property and not return; failure to comply is a violation of the law termed criminal trespass. Of course, this doesn't seem matter to a generation raised as semi-professional victims and martyrs.

Wolfchase is fighting a losing battle to not become another Southland, Raleigh Springs, Hickory Hill and Mall of Memphis. McKenzie and others, whether intentionally or not, are fighting to hasten that end.

And while attention is focused on this trivia, real hatred goes unreported in The Flyer:

Re: “Deidre Malone in Talks to Handle Council Referenda Campaign

Excellent points, but you folks must be new to Memphis - this is just how we roll here.

But it is amazing how $30-40k in self-promotion by the Usual Clowns (or parking on the grass) can get people worked up when hundreds of $millions of tax money for pro sports facilities (and a bait shop) scarcely causes a commotion.

The Clowncil routinely hands out $millions to rich developers for office space the city doesn't need and housing most can't afford - and virtually no one seems to care.

By all means, please continue to fight the entrenched interests of the oligarchy that runs the City wherever they intrude upon our welfare. But until enough Memphians want to break their control over our city and our lives, successes will be few and small.

On the other hand, it should be a lovely Fall weekend. Enjoy the weather and the great things here.

Re: “Proposal to Use Alabama Plant for Power Raises Concern

Calling this particular plan "pie-in-the-sky" is actually being complimentary.

Avoiding the general debate over nuclear power versus other energy sources, I actually worked for TVA in the early to mid-1980s in the central engineering office in Knoxville (since de-centralized). Most of my work was on other plants but at one time I was the technical contract administrator for the control system for Bellefonte NP.

This plant is older than the Flyer articles have stated, with construction starting in the 1970s. During various deferrals, cancellations and what-have-you, Bellefonte has been thoroughly scavenged by other TVA plants and activities, and additional equipment sold for salvage and even scrap. Whatever is left is seriously aged and outdated.

When the last nuclear plants under construction in the eighties came on-line, their costs were generally in the $4-5 billion range. I just don't believe that given the age and state of Bellefonte NP, that it is economically (and possibly physically) viable to complete today - even at $8.8 billion ("loaned" by taxpayers based on a flimsy "plan").

To mystically come up with the idea of this scheme will work AND reduce MLGW power costs by half is absurd. Hopefully, MLGW and the City will not be taken in.
