Re: “Tennessee AG: Memphis Pot Law Illegal

I'm so glad that I don't live in Memphis, TN any longer. Your AG is completely wrong & totally out of line. Even though is is considered His Opinion it is wrong & completely interferes with the right of a City to govern its self. If a person is caught by the TN State Troopers then the person is charged under State Law not a city's law or ordinance. The City of Memphis is not filling the jail with inmates which cut's down on the cost of housing, clothing, & feeding them. Which (if admitted) has been done going on for who know's how long.

Re: “Homeless Advocates Protest, Demand Better Housing and LGBT Shelter

I wouldn't accept that position as I Am a Supported of Our Democracy & Freedoms that have been paid for with the Ultimate Price of BLOOD. You comment Mia S Kite is Totally out of Line. Your problem is You Can't handle the TRUTH. You just show the lack of Education that You were provided & chose to be More Considered with other matters that I will not Give You ther pleasure of Seeing in Print.

Re: “Homeless Advocates Protest, Demand Better Housing and LGBT Shelter

To the Citizens of Memphis,TN. I have read your story, I have this to say: I have lived in the City of Memphis several different times since May 1988 when I first moved to Memphis & started work for a Private Security Company that I worked for till July 1993. I know that the Living conditions for those of the LGBT community. I can't remember a day or time that Blame is Always placed at other Peoples Feet. I have Never played the Blame Game. The reason is that I accept Responsibility for the decisions & choices that I made that lead to my being homeless from late 2003 till early 2004. I left Memphis & the South & My Lifer done a 180 & has been much much better in All areas. The difference between the South & Memphis area & where I live now is as Different as Daylight & Nighttime. I have seen What the Residents of Section 8 Housing do & allow to be done to the property they re allowed to reside in. They Do Not Take Care of the Apt or other housing property's that were once available & in condition to be lived in Have Been DESTROYED by the people who lived their. I remember seeing Section 8 Property's empty & falling down because of disrepair. MHA should have or is being investigated for Misappropriation of funds like the Housing Authority of the City of Chicago was. I STRONGLY suggest to the People who are protesting Take a Look at Your Selves & How You Have Forgotten (if Ever were ) to take care of the Roof over Your Head As If It Was Your Very Own, Because IF You had to Replace or Repair the Dwelling out of Your Pocket instead of ALL Tax Payers Paying the Bill just as You do When You If You Ever Have to Purchase items that require to be paid for in cash & taxes are added. I would like to Close with This: God Helps Those Who Help Them Selves, I worked & acquired what I have By the Sweat of My Brow & Remember that My Parents worked & acquired what they had by the Sweat of their Brows as Sharecroppers till just after October 17, 1959. Remeber to Ask Your Selves this: WWJD?
