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

Par for the course.

While funny, I wouldn't pin this on one guy.

You didn't quote this, but these guys have some responsibility for oversight. It is the end of August:

"The presentation was the first time Tennesseee lawmakers have publicly questioned TennCare about the issue, which began to surface early this year.

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

Mismanagement???? Given that Grinnin' Bill really does not want it to work (cause he's got a plan that no one knows about), one might assume that this is all smoke and mirrors to delay till at least after the elections.

Re: “#Mayoralchatter: Linda Rebrovick Setting Up Team, Close To Announcement

Given the "gifts" of high priced projects and low priority TRUE public education programs from Dean (yes I'm talking about his pro-charter stance), what we do NOT need is another branch of the Chamber of Commerce on the mayors throne!

Now we have two Republicans that are self-funding their campaigns!?!

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

I'm not sure why an auditing firm is being brought in to analyze the development of a computer system. Are the problems purely technical? If not, is KGMT really being hired to uncover mismanagement of the funding?

Re: “#Mayoralchatter: Linda Rebrovick Setting Up Team, Close To Announcement

Well, she certainly talks like a politician. She is just getting started, but she is already tap-dancing all over the place. I have never heard of her before now, but I already don't like her.

The only takeaway at this point is that she is apparently a rich Republican who will be self-funding her campaign.

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

"hired a third-party auditing firm, KGMT, to review how long completing the system will take. The review itself will take 14 weeks."

They couldn't just ASK the contractor? How many millions will we pay KGMT?

Once again we see this governor is only concerned with giving welfare to his corporate cronies. The GOP health care plan is simple: get sick and die.

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

NO! Mia Culpa, she's a waitress at the Waffle House. Sizzle..........

This just in, YOU do NOT direct the narrative here. Demanding answers to silly questions that have in the most part already either been answered or are obvious, is all for naught. Neither of us will be satisfied with the results and in this case the truth may never be acclaimed publicly!

Re: “Will Congress Address Police Militarization?

This isn't Baghdad, and we're not terrorists. And it's not really about having it, it's about when to use it, and IMHO we need it used judiciously. So far many police departments have used it foolishly.

Re: “The Real Question Is, 'Is Lance Frizzell Being Paid Enough?'

Ramsey says he pays his staff well, but they are employees of the state, and he's not the one paying them.

Why should a lackey for the Lieutenant Governor make more than a teacher?

"If the police need military weapons"

That's the question, isn't it?

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

john, you keep trying to get people to declare if Wilson is innocent or guilty of a crime with what we "BELIEVE TO DATE".

More (possible) evidence about a sound recording of the shots has just been discovered. It's another piece that needs to be added to the overall puzzle. The formal investigation is not complete. Until it is, declaring guilt or innocence by public opinion is pointless.

Re: “Radley Balko And The Greatest Timing Ever

Yeah, I'd worry about it, too, Yoyoid, if we actually HAD a racist attorney general. I think you have to go back to John Mitchell, for that.

Re: “Paramore broke the Nashville Curse and never looked back

I don't get this. I'm from Philadelphia, where Jason and the Scorchers received tons of airplay on the AOR stations in the early '80s, enough that I know who Jason Ringenberg is. How is this a curse?

I assume you mean mea culpa. I was going to let that go, but you keep at it.

Next time just say you were wrong. A lack of class, JC, a lack of class....

Re: “Radley Balko And The Greatest Timing Ever

REPUBLICANS????? Oh my GOD, shoot them before they multiply!

Your conspiracy suggestion rings mighty hollow considering they had imported considerable quantities of wood forbidden by federal and international law to import! That is called breaking the law.
I am further amazed that it is OK to shoot Mike Brown in your eyes, but horrible and unnecessary to place arrested people in guarded rooms until info can be gathered and a legal triage determined. Kinda screwed up priorities, eh yoyojohn???
