Re: “#MayoralChatter: ‘If Anybody’s a Centrist in This Race, It’s Me’

Mr. Hedge-Fund Manager trying to come off as one of us middle-class nashvillians. You and your SuperPac managing brother can keep on spending money, but your not going to buy this election!

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

@Brain Guy
So you think it's a wise move to belittle the 'poorly educated'? Making fun of someone's weight is offensive and juvenile, but writing off the very people our society has failed is disgusting. Good luck with that.

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

If men actually wanted a world where women had sex freely with anyone, anytime they wanted, the word "slut" wouldn't exist. But they don't -- they want a world where they control when where who and how women have sex.

Also, I think some commenters are conflating "being terrified of being raped," with "feeling it likely they will be raped." Everyone, generally speaking, dreads the idea of being raped, ditto being poisoned, stabbed, etc, regardless of the likelihood of that occurring. Betsy is not saying that all women walk around petrified all the time. She's pointing out that making oneself available for random, no-strings sex increases greatly the likelihood that rape will occur.

Women don't do random sex, by-and-large, because the risk of violence or stigma is very high, and given the state of sex ed in our country, the reward is likely to be very low.

Lack of discipline, Brainless. What is wrong with you?

"Shades of William Howard Taft," co-ometer thoughtfully posts.

I am glad someone else is doing the heavy lifting. And, we still want Brainless's ht and wt.
Be a damn sport, Brain Guy. I posted mine.

".....frightening to think that poorly educated low-rent wannabe's have nothing productive or meaningful to add to the discussion...."

This statement is arrogance personified.
I wonder why so many people apparently are turning away from the progressive 'movement'? Or are you deliberately trying to destroy it?

Re: “#MayoralChatter: ‘If Anybody’s a Centrist in This Race, It’s Me’

There are still comments being posted against Barry because of her weight. Unless Lumpy has turned up his sock puppet generating machine to "High", this means there are more people out there who think this is the most important consideration.

If you don't want to vote for her because of her politics, votes in Council, etc., that's your privilege. Otherwise, it's time for you to grow up.

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

"David Fox represents the Washington Way."

Yes, the man who grew up here, went to school here, served on the school board here, worked at the local fishwrap, whose wife writes for The Scene, and started another local news publication, brings "the Washington Way".

Barry: "What do you think a Super PAC buys you? What kind of access?"

Probably the kind of access only a brother would have.

Re: “Open Thread Wants to Know: What's the Best Restaurant Delivery Service?

Nothing says "you are not the target market for this service" like reading this and thinking, who wants to pay for delivery when you 1) have personal transportation, 2) enjoy a place's physical space and interactions, and 3) are healthy enough to enjoy getting out and eating healthy options? oh, and 4) never have I received take out that was as good as dine-in.

In other words, having a fast food burrito or sandwich or, lord, what planet are we on - a blizzard from DQ - delivered would never, ever occur to me. Even if trapped in a hotel without a rental car. I will see your pricey bag of almost warm food and raise you one trusty bag of almonds and two drinks at the bar .

having said that, there is one place for which I would pay for delivery to my home: Prince's. Good luck making that business case profitable!

The attacks on Barry's appearance were old before they even started.....frightening to think that poorly educated low-rent wannabe's have nothing productive or meaningful to add to the discussion....poor reflection on society as a whole, poorer reflection on the nasty elements that have found there way into this election

Re: “#MayoralChatter: ‘If Anybody’s a Centrist in This Race, It’s Me’

Fox's new mailer, which is an all-out attack piece on Barry without a single positive message, is beyond the pale. Whatever shreds of respect I had for him, even after Carringtons' ridiculously dishonest TV ad, is gone.

The guy is damaged goods in this city Barry is right in the interview to call them out at length on all the whisper campaigns against her.

I wish she were far more left myself. But despite the cynical dishonest bullshit from Fox in this campaign, she IS the centrist in the race; Chamber of Commerce, corporate tax-giveaways and all.

Re: “Farmers Market Find: Yellow Wax Beans (With Recipe)

@BW I wouldn't expect anyone is finding anything they used to find at the new, improved farmers market where everything except produce is sold...but if it is, thank god it's local. Unless it's from Michigan. In which case, thank god it's the actual producer selling it and not some nefarious evil-doing middleman. Except it's really their local family member...

"As far education"

It's spelled "for". Were you intending to make yourself an example of a failed public school education?

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

Fox is very correct.........What has Barry done in 8 years.
She run for Mayor in 3 of them, gained about 50 pounds, attacked a lot of people via her media arm the Tennessean and the Scene.
As far education, affordable housing, debt service, and traffic she has nothing!!!
