Re: “Left Activists Intrude on Meeting of Shelby County Democrats

We're either gonna get a Jill Stein type or another Trump/Bush type.

Anybody who thanks a traditional R or D can win anything going forward into the post-internet age is living with their head in the sand.

Whatever the future is, it will be absolutely nothing like the past.

@ CL I was trying to not be the first one to say it.

Re: “Report: Memphis 'Ground Zero for Government Waste'

Nashville takes umbrage at the "I AM A MAN" monument celebrating the movement towards civil rights parity?

Gosh, I am so powerfully shocked Nashville disapproves of racial equality.

Meanwhile Nashville funds a television show that's basically just a commercial to draw people to the state capitol.

But hey, NASHVILLE TOTALLY ISN'T FOUNDED ON SYSTEMIC RACISM AND THE EXPLOITATION OF MEMPHIS OR ANYTHING.

Re: “Attorney Wade Joins Commission Team in Battle with County Mayor

How could any action against licensed dope pushers be too extensive?

They need to be rounded up, as all criminals are, charged with the poisonings they have committed, and sentenced in due process of the law.

Why anyone would want to obstruct justice being served is beyond me.

I don't care if you catch the Pope himself selling poison and calling it medicine, and I don't care if he has a stack of licenses as thick as a dictionary to do it.

It's fundamentally unjust that something an unlicensed amateur drug dealer would face a manslaughter charge for a rich doctor can get away with scot-free.

If anything, the licensed Doctors should be held to a HIGHER standard than a street dealer, because the Doctor is trained to know better.

Re: “Trolley Return Pushed Back to April

The trolley program is such an albatross. It's basically a white elephant designed to keep public transit dollars bogged down, streets restricted, and squander money intended to help poor people to work.

Imagine how much the bus system could be improved if this focus was shifted there, where it could actually serve people who need it.

Re: “Vote to Remove Memphis' Confederate Statues Held by City Council

Call me crazy, but NBF's statue devalues human life and humans who feel their lives aren't valued tend to do self-destructive and thereby dangerous acts. The man literally used to auction off human lives at a discount.

A person who doesn't feel their life is worth much might think their life could be improved by joining a gang, or that someone else's life is less important than short term gain. They might put themselves and others at risk by stealing or shooting at others.

So yes, taking down the statue would actually help to curb crime. Also, since the monument itself is historically anachronistic, it would also improve accurate preservation of our history to remove it.
