Re: “The Daily Links: Unionizing, Coffee Time, and Dennis Hastert

The liberals mentioned as part of the Fox News teams are all paid contributors with lucrative contracts, not "guests". There is no equivalent representation of conservatives or even RINOS on CNBC or CNN, it's not even close.

"Hey at least FIFA is more important than the 20th Benghazi investigation."

Really? I don't remember anyone DYING in FIFA, as opposed to Benghazi where Ambassador Christopher Stevens, State Information Officer Sean Smith, and Navy Seals Glen Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods all died as result of negligence by the Obama administration. I guess Williamson Willie and the rest of us have a different view of what is "more important."

Re: “Charter School Champion to Lead Mayor’s ‘Project Renaissance’

Pluralistic? Now tell me, Min, what does a pluralistic classroom have to do with one's learning to read and write? Perhaps some social benefits? That's even doubtful.

Re: “North Nashville Groups Allege Civil Rights Violations in Police HQ Relocation

The racist legacy of the Dean machine will haunt police/community relations for years to come. Look at each of those items listed. Is there any dispute that Dean and his thugs are not guilty of all of them? Councilman Lillard is right. "Downtown" means "downtown." Jefferson Street is not downtown. We are fortunate this is happening in an election year and can act accordingly.

Re: “The Daily Links: Unionizing, Coffee Time, and Dennis Hastert

Well, few watch CNN and fewer watch MSNBC. That means something.

I would like to see Scott Walker win the presidency, GOP add to the Senate and house majorities and David Fox become mayor.

What JC and small Willie do?

Willie, we can't take off the table that the FIFA scandal and Benghazi aren't related! I think that they are! Brother Yoyo has already indicated to me that he would like to discuss this link at our next strategy session! Again, with everything else, I really believe that Gruber holds the key! I wish that the Republicans would go ahead and get him on record as it would really open up the possibilities for our sessions! Brother Yoyo and myself could be on the very verge of becoming the next Woodstein and Bernward! We really do need our own deep-throat though!

Re: “It's Time for Our Leaders to Act Like Leaders on Health Care

Aye Aye Brother Longfellow! Here's a quick trivia question for the libtards who frequent this ridiculous site! What were two groups that favored universal healthcare?!! The answer: the Nazis and the Demoncrats! As Phil Valentine might say, "that's no coincidence folks!"

Re: “Charter School Champion to Lead Mayor’s ‘Project Renaissance’

Reading, math and writing are part of a pluralistic public education. So what are you actually asking me?

"Teachers have a pretty cushy deal."

Then go get your Tennessee teaching license and apply to teach in the public schools. We have so many teachers fleeing the profession in this state that it should be easy for you to find a position.

Re: “North Nashville Groups Allege Civil Rights Violations in Police HQ Relocation

When the police department pulled out of their office in the Hillwood area, the local residents were pissed.
Food for thought.

Re: “North Nashville Groups Allege Civil Rights Violations in Police HQ Relocation

>>> "The HQ lacks proper community input and concrete planning required for large-scale development projects, and typically afforded to affluent and predominantly white communities in Nashville."

Why, hello low-ball sale of the old convention center rubber stamped by Metro Council. Have you met the dead-of-night administrative approval of the 17 story building in Green Hills? The Eddy Arnold / Voce development SP zoning approval thought you might have something in common. Signed, $15M in TIF spending on behalf of Starwood dba Westin (NYSE:HOT, trending up at $82.73 in after hours trading on a market cap of $14.14 Bn).

Re: “Charter School Champion to Lead Mayor’s ‘Project Renaissance’

The J Collins of this world have had a generation and plenty of money to help little children learn the basics and they can't even do that.

MNPS also lies as you do, JC. Think definition of proficiency.

As far as learning to read and write I am unsure how Min's pluralistic public school system has contributed? Min has been asked before, and now I will again.... what does the teachers union fighting for a pluralistic learning experience have to with reading, math and writing?

Money is not the issue. Teachers have a pretty cushy deal.

Re: “North Nashville Groups Allege Civil Rights Violations in Police HQ Relocation

I agree that it's not ideal but it's as walkable as anything else in Nashville. There's continuous sidewalk, small lots and shallow setbacks, There is even one of the Jefferson Street history bollards nearby.

Re: “North Nashville Groups Allege Civil Rights Violations in Police HQ Relocation

@twh have you walked on that section of Jefferson anytime lately? Because I have and that particular part of Jefferson is not something that is easily classified as walkable - narrow and poorly maintained sidewalks, basically nonexistent road margins, fast moving traffic in narrow lanes tight against the sidewalks, low railing on the bridge over the interstate.

I agree though that the parking lot should be behind the building (facing the interstate) rather than taking up a huge section along the street. At least that could contribute to the overall walkability of that section of the street.

Ella:

"My suggestion would be to pull all police presence out of North Nashville."

That is now, not surprisingly, called the "Ferguson Effect." It is in effect in Baltimore with deadly results.

Re: “It's Time for Our Leaders to Act Like Leaders on Health Care

"It's Time for Our Leaders to Act Like Leaders on Health Care"

Wrong.
The time to act like leaders was when they drafted and passed the legislation. Instead the advocates of the legislation relentlessly lied about it. And continue to do so.

Keeping in mind that for Democrats relentlessly lying is a feature, not a bug.

Re: “North Nashville Groups Allege Civil Rights Violations in Police HQ Relocation

@AnglRdr Why is it facing a parking lot? I hope they change that since Jefferson is actually walkable.
