Re: “The Usual Shenanigans

Considering the skills learned by kids in college are profited off of by their employers, it seems making kids pay for education is giving businesses free educations.

In Germany, businesses must educate their own employees through apprenticeship programs that teach job specific skills.

Germany also has one of the strongest economies in the world.

Buy hey, why imitate success when you can treat poor people like garbage for a little self esteem boost?

Re: “Tami Sawyer Announces Mayoral Candidacy

This is great news. The city needs the exact opposite of cronies like Strickland, and if you've ever dealt with Mrs. Sawyer, you'll know she is absolutely perfect for the job.

If there's anyone who really feels the pulse of memphis, it's Tami Sawyer, and her candidacy is the brightest hope for Memphis I've seen in a long time.

Re: “Mayor on Tom Lee Park: Don’t Worry About It

Strickland hates downtown.

He wants to push development out east where his rich cronies like Loeb Properties own most of the land.

Of course he doesn't want us to think about how he's destroying Memphis's most valuable asset too much, in the same way a thief doesn't want a homeowner worrying too much about locking their doors.

Re: “Tom Lee Park Redesign Defended As Successful Festival Grounds

Barf, Tom Lee park is on a flood plain.

It floods at least once every 10 years.

Tom Lee needs to be big and empty, just like it is right now, because any building you put there will eventually flood.

Like a bowl, it's the empty space in Tom Lee that makes it useful.

Yes, like a flat space on a table, it's extremely tempted to put things there. However, just like a table, the whole point of Tom Lee is that it's open and available to be put to it's best temporary use and then cleared of again.

Re: “Tom Lee Park Redesign Defended As Successful Festival Grounds

This headline should read "Idiot out of town consulting firm steals job from local contractors, screws up royally by having no idea how the resources they've been put in charge to manage are traditionally used, bungles the job horribly and wastes precious taxpayer money."

We should have hired a Memphis team for a Memphis development.

But hey, when you're trying to crony out good ol' boy pork barrel gigs to your "big national connections" so you can cash in some favors, you gotta betray your homefolks, that's just how the game is played.

Maybe we should stop playing games, and get some real deal Memphis folks to deal with these real deal Memphis problems.

Re: “Block Grants Bill Advances Despite Memphians’ Protest

Nashville: Technically, if we cut funding to healthcare for the poor in Memphis, they'll die.
Memphis: But isn't that immoral?
Nashville: Only if you aren't religious and don't think people go to heaven when they die.
Memphis: But the state is banned from being religious...
Nashville: Tell that to this statue of Nathan Bedford Forrest in our Legislature you disgusting memphibian

Re: “Memphis Cited For Two Roads With Country's Most Cell Phone Use
