Re: “The Daily Links: André 3000, ISIS, and America's Executions

Writing rap lyrics suspends constitutional rights. This is yoyo's America. His mother is so proud, looking down from heaven, watching him defame the dead. Lovely child.

Hard to have a perception of her as a Republican when I have never heard of her.

Re: “What if TennCare Director Darin Gordon is Really a Performance Artist?

If you actually read the article you discover a salient fact. Only a small portion of the bid price has been paid so far, it is customary when a contractor fails to deliver on material promises to get a neutral second opinion, often as a prelude to law suits. The four phase test is just that, a four phase test of a complete system.

There are two things that are important. The first is that a viable means of application and eligibility determination are in place regardless of mechanism. The second is that the people of Tennesse either receive a discounted functional eligibility determination system or a refund of monies already paid (less than $5 million to date).

It is an unfortunate situation that has happened in a number of states, largely because the Federal agencies constantly delay setting requirements or change the requirements repeatedly and are slow to expose interfaces to their systems that they mandate must be connected. No doubt the project could have been managed better in some respects but there are multiple factors at play and unless this is recognized, sound policy decisions can not be made.

Rather than criticizing, perhaps aggrieved citizens can offer constructive alternatives to an admittedly undesirable situation.

Re: “Why Style Blueprint Should Stick To What It Knows

"African-Americans" commit crimes at a far greater rate than "whites," apparently a catchall term for anyone of European ancestry or some light-skinned mixture thereof. Criminal activity is the reason for their incarceration, not some white devil scheme. Is it racist to point out the 600,000 illegal aliens in our federal prisons, who are almost entirely of Central American ancestry? Is it racist to keep them there? Would they come to get your daughters? Most assuredly they would if they could.

Re: “Let the call every parent fears — a child's suicide — be a wake-up call for other parents

Tina, Thank you for sharing your heart-wrenching story. Last year my nephew took his life. He was attending an Ivy League University. He was 21 years old. He was brilliant. He too was suffering from depression. He took his life on my birthday. I pray for his mother, my sister, daily. I cannot even imagine the pain she is suffering.

Re: “Tough Questions, Frank Answers at Town Hall Meeting On Ferguson

This guy is just too stupid to live! He was walking down the middle of the street after strong arming a store clerk, and then attacking a police officer who had the nerve to tell him to get out of the street! The laws of natural selection have been enforced.

Re: “Why Style Blueprint Should Stick To What It Knows

People who lack the skills and self worth to make money the legal way are not suddenly going to walk the straight and narrow just because their product is legalized. I do not know of human trafficking will be the route they take but I would bet hard cash on the fact they will move on to something illegal, anti-social, or both.

Making things legal that were once illegal drops the income. The bootlegging mob did not suddenly quit once prohibition ended, they moved stronger into prostitution and drugs. Some moved into gambling, but even that is not entirely legal and and even if it is they did so with illegal methods.

Dude, get a grip, someone is trying to prevent human trafficking, don't hack them up.

Re: “Why Style Blueprint Should Stick To What It Knows

"Trafficking is a growing problem. It’s the second fastest growing crime on the planet...." What part of that does Scavendish not understand? I've prophesied before about the future if drugs are legalized, the gangs and other dealers having to find another way to make money, only I predicted burglaries, robberies and car-jacking would increase. From here it looks like Style Blueprint has a legitimate concern. One other thing from Steve's blog: Gee, Steve, why are African Americans being incarcerated at a higher rate than whites? Should we quit arresting black criminals? I know, the police should not patrol places blacks tend to congregate...or even visit. That'll fix the problem because everybody knows it's always whitey's fault.

Racist? Argue with the argument, but how in world could you ever get racism out of this? Sounds like someone's page views are down...

Re: “Naming Neighborhoods: What Do You Call the Communities Along Dickerson Pike?

There are several neighborhood names along Dickerson Pike. From south of the Goodlettsville city limits (where it is intermittently named Main St. and Dickerson Pike), on down to where we get into the Urban Services District, you have several small subdivisions with their own names (like Ridgemont Estates and Ozark Hills), and then you get larger neighborhoods like Dalemere, Bellshire, Skyview/Skyline, etc. Once you pass from the GSD to the USD, there are other neighborhoods such as Hillhurst, Capitol View, Cleveland Park, McFerrin Park, etc., and these areas are generally considered the less desirable parts and shape the negative reputation (often people inaccurately refer to the "Dickerson Pike Area" as these last few neighborhoods specifically).

Barret lectured my Con Law class in college. Good man, but very intense. Inspired us to examine all issues from both sides, something I find myself often failing to do now, unfortunately!

Re: “We Can't Make This Up (UPDATED)

Privatization of what should be public operations usually results in inefficiency and constant apology, IMHO!

As far as police possessing military equipment, such should be used only in extreme situations and what transpired (by police) in Ferguson BEFORE the provocative video release was completely uncalled for and dose not qualify. What resulted after was the result of authority malpractice.
AS far as this "chicken little" chaos prediction, good damn chance that it is started by authority figures power mad and intolerant of constitutional protections of citizen dissent.
