Re: “#MayoralChatter: We Do Not Know What To Think About This New David Fox Ad

To paraphrase Lloyd Bentsen: Mr. Fox, I've watched Matthew McConaughey. I've lived through the McConaissance. Matthew McConaughey could be a bro of mine. Mr. Fox, you're no Mathew McConaughey.

Like most conservatives, Fox has no ideas of his own and as a result must appropriate those of liberals. Hence this bad ad Nashville has to suffer.

Re: “Ashley Madison Users of Tennessee, Let's Talk

Marriage was created to relegate women to the status of property. Laws in a number of states confirmed that, and some of us older feminists had to lobby in our states to change those laws in the Seventies and Eighties. I'm sure some of those laws are still on the books.

Re: “Why Don't We Give Poor People the Incentives?

And the "omniscient" Brain Guy is almost as fixated, following a couple of commenters around for the sole purpose of insulting them from the "safety" of several transparent pseudonyms. Personal attacks are pretty much all that some commenters inflict here. That is always a giveaway to their claimed political leanings. It's why independents think you shouldn't be in charge of anything.

Next ad will be even better. It's a Silence of the Lambs parody with him as Hannibal Lecter and Carrington as Clarice Starling.

Re: “Ashley Madison Users of Tennessee, Let's Talk

It's good to know that the five women I met on Ashley Madison over the past ten years weren't real. They were each lovely figments of my imagination, with fictitious husbands who knew and approved of their extramarital affairs, or who couldn't perform sexually for medical reasons, or or just didn't pay enough attention to their wives. Those wives that don't exist, of course, because there are no real women on AM.

Sure, there are fake profiles on AM. A lot of them. But there are also very real people of both sexes with their own, unique, reasons for being there, and judging them without knowing their stories is small-minded, condescending, and arrogant.

Re: “Ashley Madison Users of Tennessee, Let's Talk

Marriage was created as way to pass on property rights to the next generation.

Re: “Ashley Madison Users of Tennessee, Let's Talk

" Preoccupations with others' business is the ultimate in liberalism and progressivism,"

BS

It's conservatives who have labored mightily to tell gay people who they can and cannot love.
Conservatives who try to control women's bodies.
Conservatives shove their religious OPINION onto other people with restrictive laws and laws that favor their OPINION about religion.

"a number of true liberals agree with me"

Technically, "zero" is a number.

It's almost like Fox doesn't really want to win this race.

That's fine with me.

Re: “Why Don't We Give Poor People the Incentives?

For the record, I have never called anyone's mother any ugly name. I have never used the "w" word more than once or twice in my life, and that would have been in a political context. MY mother raised kids who don't talk or write like a broken-sewer spray. On the other hand, some here, in the ugliest of ways, have insulted several of my family members, none of whom they know or knew.

I've mentioned this before, and a number of true liberals agree with me: Nashville has the phoniest, most viciously intolerant lefties of any city of my acquaintance. I think it's the transplants, but I don't know.

JohntheRevelator has been allowed to repeatedly use my real name here to post filth and defamatory trash. This sick individual has called me every filthy name he can come up with. He does not know me, has never met or seen me, but is fixated on me and determined to control my participation here. He is a complete and utter failure at that and everything else.

Re: “Ashley Madison Users of Tennessee, Let's Talk

I would be hesitant to admit that the male of this species is the root of all human sexual depravity. Despite yoyo's scientific analysis (Harvard inspired?), I fail to accept as explanation justified primal urge to explain infidelity and /or rape.
Tom may have a point that involvement of certain political personality are the result of sock puppetry. But I sincerely doubt the majority of such actually is.
Politicians have feet of clay and history distaste they are not sll Democrats. If a WC GOP rep is guilty, that should be a matter for his or her spouse divorce attorney. I'm sure NG can recommend one.

How did David Fox memorize all that dialogue without having to glace over at the cue cards?

Makes a lot of sense, actually.

Attack the the kids and the public school board- check.

Get support from the local sons of the confederacy- check.

Off to a midnight drive to attack the only female around.

What a great ad! Thanks for sharing!

Re: “The quintessential coming-of-age question 'What do you want to do with your life?' doesn't scare this college student

"There is no greater happiness than helping someone else." Amid a modern American culture that too often seems to glorify narcissism and unearned fame, wealth and "winning" at the expense of others, the clear-eyed wisdom of an modest and unselfish 19-year old woman shines like an evening star. Thank you, Clara. You're an inspiration.

Re: “Mayoral candidate Megan Barry on her vision for Nashville, from the future of schools to transit and taxes

Megan Barry represents the true Nashville Way that supports regular Nashvillians. David Fox represents the Washington Way that is totally dedicated to the rich and powerful. It's quite obvious that a Barry win will bring power to Nashville's middle-class. (Keep in mind that a strong middle class builds a strong economy.)

Re: “Tickets Now on Sale for the Nashville Whiskey Festival

I am from NY and the cost of tickets to your festivals in this state is outrageous. Where I come from there are many, many festivals all over the place and are well attended. You see here in this state the festivals being a five year limit at which time it is not getting enough attendance. People go once and do not return because of the cost. I see that over and over again... the life of a festival that charges these outrageous prices is limited. It is a one time attendance because of the cost. People do not come back year after year . Unless everything is free, including food and whiskey it is not worth a return visit.I am not going to attend because of the cost, not only the one ticket but one for my daughter and granddaughter. You just cut off your nose to think you are making money but the life of the festival is destroyed by greed. Three hundred dollars to go to your festival is not worth it for me. You could not have three hundreds dollars worth of fun for anyone. If I want a bottle of Johnny Walker Red or Glenlivet I can buy two bottles for the price of one of your tickets.
