Re: “Guess That Tea Partier!

@RemotePatroller.. I will recant my first statement for no other reason than to respect the common citizen that views this blog. Point taken. While I may not agree with the content of the post.. my comments were not intended to flame the readers.

Re: “Guess That Tea Partier!

@Phlo, I am perfectly fine with RELEVANT media..not garbage that just advances partisan bickering and lack of solutions to real problems affecting our country! This post is just a slap shot at Republicans, just exacerbating what is wrong with politics today and promulgates discordance. It was biased and without purpose.

Re: “Letters to the Editor

Couple of comments, some of these posts are hilarious. First off, Memphis could use a surge in providing minimum wage jobs. Have you seen all the empty buildings? Minimum wage jobs need managers, managers need executives, yada yada.. What Perry did in Texas would serve Memphis well too in that regard.. and I'm not even a supporter of Perry. Obama is honestly the biggest political marionette known to presidential politics in this country thus-far; Awesomeburg should of never even brought up the whole debacle of Obama receiving the Nobel, even his constituents were like really?wtf?.. what a travesty that was. I'm honestly up in arms when it comes to solutions for this country. The only thing I see as an honest solution is to get rid of the tax code and implement a flat tax on consumption not income. This would serve many purposes but mainly 1. Take away the lobbying and political clout that has been the demise of the Senate and House respectively across partisan borders equally. 2. Generate income from criminals, illegal aliens, and tax evaders alike (that don't pay income tax) that Americans subsidize, but would effectively deter that type of business. 3. Give Americans the ability budget their finances easily without worrying about what tax bracket they are going to fall into.. and how to evade it. 4. Most importantly.. remove the social stratification inherent to the current tax code by removing the specifications of what the government decides is a more affluent citizen, which is ridiculous. I still don't understand why we tax success, it's counter intuitive.

Lastly, Congress is polarized with lawyers. I'm not going to infer that we need to limit the amount of lawyers but a nice blend of Phd's, MBA's, Doctors, Engineers.. would be beneficial and provide some balance. Maybe term limits on Congressional officials would serve to limit racketeering.

Re: “Guess That Tea Partier!

This is the first time I have viewed the Memphis Flyer since moving here.. but it strikes no surprise as to why no one reads or posts on your garbage.
