Re: “Thanks, Uncle Sam! Surveying Middle Tennessee's Military Toys

Anyone who thinks they need military equipment is insane. Even military leaders question these weapons in the hands of the completely untrained. Domestic terrorism is not the answer to anything, much less for civil unrest caused by police brutality. Take these delinquents toys away. There is not a war on the American people, so theyre not needed.

Re: “Ferguson Has Happened Here

True, so very,very true! I remember the 60's here, I remember the protests and the lunch counter sit ins. I remember the riots, small scale in comparison to Detroit and such, but very real and frightening. It just seems we will never learn that oppressing anyone will only result in uprisings, sometimes violent, sometimes on the scale of revolutions. THAT is something the power structure and current extremist politicos might take into consideration.

Re: “The Daily Links: Ferguson, Editors, and the EPL

I believe that the last shot, the kill shot if you will, the shot to the top of the head immobilized Brown either through death (extremely highly likely) or paralysis (perhaps lapsing into unconsciousness, no real difference). The crux of the matter is that he did NOT receive THAT wound while being drug into the car as yoyojohn asserted. He did not receive that wound and then retreat and turn around and raise his hands shouting "don't shoot, I'm unarmed", as the witnesses said! THAT is the voice of some experience talking and common sense. No I wasn't there, but I have a brain and it works fine (so far), and I have the ability to reason. If you wish to wait on a report that will say reality is indeed real, go ahead. I choose to comment what I deem to be the truth.

If and when it does, guess who will be prepared? It won't be you, that's for sure.

Re: “The Tennessean: When MORE! Means Less

Problem: HP Printer not connecting to my laptop.

I had an issue while connecting my 2 year old HP printer to my brother's laptop that I had borrowed for starting my own business. I used a quick google search to fix the problem but that did not help me.

I then decided to get professional help to solve my problem. After having received many quotations from various companies, i decided to go ahead with Online Tech Repair (

Reasons I chose them over the others:
1) They were extremely friendly and patient with me during my initial discussions and responded promptly to my request.
2) Their prices were extremely reasonable.
3) They were ready and willing to walk me through the entire process step by step and were on call with me till i got it fixed.

How did they do it
1) They first asked me to state my problem clearly and asked me a few questions. This was done to detect any physical connectivity issues with the printer.
2) After having answered this, they confirmed that the printer and the laptop were functioning correctly.
3) They then, asked me if they could access my laptop remotely to troubleshoot the problem and fix it. I agreed.
4) One of the tech support executives accessed my laptop and started troubleshooting.
5) I sat back and watched as the tech support executive was navigating my laptop to spot the issue. The issue was fixed.
6) I was told that it was due to an older version of the driver that had been installed.

My Experience
I loved the entire friendly conversation that took place with them. They understood my needs clearly and acted upon the solution immediately. Being a technical noob, i sometimes find it difficult to communicate with tech support teams. It was a very different experience with the guys at Online Tech Repairs. You can check out their website or call them on 1-914-613-3786.
Would definitely recommend this service to anyone who needs help fixing their computers.
Thanks a ton guys. Great Job....!!

Ever since I removed The Tennessean from my Google news feed, I feel like I've fixed the whole internet. Good riddance to their Romney-endorsing toilet paper.

Re: “Al v. Jazeera

"being used to fund terrorists."

Stacy, I wouldn't be able to blame you if that were true.

This is a television network in which you didn't "detect a hint of the bias" that you feared. In spite of that, you still make the leap to claiming it's all a front to fund terrorists.

Re: “The Daily Links: Ferguson, Editors, and the EPL

Jim, you are jumping to a lot of conclusions in spite of the fact that you are adding qualifiers like "unless", "my opinion", "reasonable to believe", etc. In spite of basing everything on reports from television, radio, or newspapers, you're still absolutely convinced he died instantly or was paralyzed.

It may be the case that he died instantly, but that also may not be the case. The official final autopsy report and forensics analysis will determine that to whatever degree of certainty is possible.

Re: “Al v. Jazeera

The Gore-Hyatt-Al Jazeera lawsuit- essentially a private matter, though that is not say the betrayal is less than newsworthy, if only because it underscores that the "parent company"/country (Doha) can't be trusted- seems to have deflected attention from the
equally-if-not-more-newsworthy AT& T U-Verse-Al Jazeera America "settlement."

I don't see how AT&T could be compelled to carry Al Jazeera America after assuring U-verse customers (and AT & T shareholders) it had no plans to dance with the devil, nor for that matter do I understand why full terms of the "agreement" remain under seal.

But U-verse Channel 1219 is now AJAMHD and, while I must admit that in my limited viewing (of a network I would never subscribe to if I had an a la carte choice) I do not detect a hint of the bias I feared, I remain adamant in my opposition to my money (i.e., my meager ownership as an AT & T shareholder and the dollars AT & T takes from my U-verse payments to pay its bill to Al Jazeera America) being used to fund terrorists.

Re: “The Daily Links: Ferguson, Editors, and the EPL

Given that there was NO GSR on his head and that ALL eye witness accounts had him a significant distance from the shooter, angle of the shot would be moot, unless it was a glancing blow and that would be inconsistent with the autopsy description. Considerable brain trauma would result and if not instant death than instant paralysis would result. From the autopsy it was declared the fatal shot. It is my opinion that upon receiving that shot he was unable to retreat some distance, turn around and then raise his arms. Hence it is reasonable to believe upon receiving that head shot (2nd) he died almost immediately or at least was left unable to move.

As for the vile and pestilential yoyojohn, I DO know gunshot wounds. I have seen more, dressed more, placed more people in bags, and second guessed myself over more bullet trauma that you can even imagine. I am NOT in this discussion to "win or lose", I am simply expressing my opinion from the POV of someone who gives a shit (as opposed to oddments like you)!

Re: “Can Ferguson Happen Here?

yoyojohn is well aware of his dog whistle rhetoric. It is designed to get a rise out of those who are more reasonable than he and his alter egos/sock puppets and outraged by racial idiots. Then he will congratulate himself for being more racially tolerant than any others while on his way to the skinhead/Klan/bitter old fart Teahadist meeting! Ya gotta admit, without people like yoyojohn, who would buy all those Swastikas?

Re: “The Daily Links: Ferguson, Editors, and the EPL

All Sharpton adds to my misery Doyle! When I hear his name, I go into mini convulsions! Same with when I hear the names Jesse Jackson, Spotted algore, Hillary, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Nobama and that lesbian Rachel Maddow! And strangely enough, Frankie Munoz from Malcolm in the Middle, a show that I loved so much! There is no rhyme or rhythm to that one! But I seethe with anger at even the mention of the other names, provoking some strong chemical reactions that set off my convulsions! I'm getting a headache even thinking about it, thanks for nothing Doyle!
