Re: “Tennessee Delegation Responds to POTUS Address on ISIS

You have to go back to Jimmy Carter (a one-termer) to find a president who's taken less vacation time than B.O.

Clinton took only slightly more time off than Obama during his 8 years so Republican presidents clearly are the worst offenders in this area and spend more time out of the White House than anybody (although it could be argued that's a positive for the country).

Prag is fine, JC.

Were you not at least mildly dismayed by Avi and that post?

Re: “If Religion Fixes Everything, Then Why Does Everything in this State Suck So Much?

Good call, Doyle. I admit to skimming it but I have suffered today over innocent errrors in writing and spelling.

I suggest a return to the no harm- no foul rule, and failing that, a moratorium. I used met for meet and spelled Dick Cheney's name wrong. These are not serious, but the name "Cheney" provoked a nasty little problem for me elsewhere.

*** I just do not know my commas but decided long ago not to fret.

Re: “Tennessee Delegation Responds to POTUS Address on ISIS

tennhumiliated,

I knew you would bite on that post of mine. When someone tells you they summer in Jackson Hole and ski the Tetons in winter then best to STFU:-)

Some is true, really.

yoyo,

Some just get frantic, tennhumilated is a good example.

Re: “Tennessee Delegation Responds to POTUS Address on ISIS

"Now he's got to re-fight the war in Iraq because he pulled the troops out too soon."

It wouldn't have been necessary to have troops in Iraq in the first place if Cheney and Rumsfeld hadn't convinced W he needed to finish the job his daddy left undone.

Yee-hahhhh!!!

Re: “Tennessee Delegation Responds to POTUS Address on ISIS

@tennembarrassed: you've taken the shotgun approach with your twisted opinions, I prefer the more direct approach: You're full of shit, especially about Obama. If he's so great why are Democrats up for election telling him to stay away from them? To get Democrats elected at all he has to bribe the electorate with goodies paid for with money borrowed from China, a debt we'll be paying off well after he's long gone. Fast and Furious, IRS, Benghazi - embarrassing disasters brought about by his regime. Now he's got to re-fight the war in Iraq because he pulled the troops out too soon. On top of that he's extended our southern border clear to Honduras and is spending billions each year on welfare for illegal immigrants. And when Foley got beheaded Obama mourned his death on a golf course. Whadda man!

Re: “Tennessee Delegation Responds to POTUS Address on ISIS

Uh, no John, I'm not upset b/c you went to friggin' Jackson Hole. I just think you're FOS, and I enjoy smacking around right wing idiocy. Saying someone needs to read up on Dick Cheney on the anniversary of 9/11 takes a lotta nerve, and serves as a great illustration of just how sad and delusional the conservative mindset is. And I'm probably a better skier than you as well, but that's beside the point.

Re: “The Derek Mason Era begins with a thud — and the realization that James Franklin left at the right time

I am not in the prediction business, but would remind all that Franklin's 2012 team started out 0-2 and was 1-3 after the first four games. We went on to finish with 9 wins including the bowl win. Derek Mason is much more about building character and champions than in building his own ego and reputation. Mason is the real deal and will find the tools to build a team to be proud of.

Re: “Woodland Hills and the problems of running a detention center like a learning facility — or is it the other way around?

A few years ago I had a friend that taught English at the state prison. He remarked one day that, "teach a rapist to read and you still have a rapist, only now he can read". He never thought there was any positive "changing" going on out there. I had some experience with the facility when it was "Jordonia"and never saw any thing that would make me think a kid getting out was any better suited to citizenship than when he entered.

Re: “Yeah, Man, It Would be Terrible if Someone Came into a Windfall and Still Got TennCare Money

By the way, the guy on the motorized scooter in the story at 12:01 a.m. is a real, beloved person in south Columbia. I've talked with him a number of times but never asked about the physical injuries that put him into a wheelchair, but other people told me the injuries came from service in our military.

The preacher in the story is real, also, and, unfortunately, there is more than one, trying to mind other people's business. But there is a lot of that going around.
