Re: “Worst Foot Forward

The comments of John Branston further outline and highlight the decay of the management of the MCS system. His well written article is just a small part of what plagues us today in the river city. It is absolutely absurd to have the pawns and product of the liberal left movement (black, poor, uneducated masses of the intercity population) continue to be used to maintain inflated MCS funding and political posturing while continuing to produce substandard results. I continue to be perplexed when any call for oversight or audit of the MCS system results in cries of racism or worse. The facts simply cannot stand in the way of the calls of racism or underperformance. The current method of problem solving has allowed all of our competing cities to leap over Memphis in opportunities for all. We have become a laughing stock of infighting and political nepatism. Keep the people down, accept substandard results, keep the masses uneducated, scare them by telling them others will threaten the continued delivery of their government check- a check they have a "right" to recieve and then blame it on anyone other than themselves - that is Memphis! It is my hope that someone will finally ask a simple question: Why, after almost 50 years of the Democratic "Great Society" social movement, does Memphis have an ever growing economic and educational concentration camp so prevalent in the inner city that there is nothing provided by the city, the educational system, the political system, or the people themselves that will allow them to escape the bondage of complete social dependancy? It's no longer the problem of others! It is such a shame to understand the sacrifices that President Lincoln and others gave to free all people only to have the Democrat party and social programs re-enslave the same individuals. Its time to stop looking to others for answers and look in the mirror. Responsibility and accountability, individually and in government must be restored for this parasitic behavior to stop.
