Re: “Slideshow: Sad Dads at One Direction

The Simpsons parodied Rear Window, they didn't show clips from the movie. The caption isn't a reference, it's a direct quote.

Put cameras on cops. Anything less is just a band aid.

To be honest, most of the kids in these photos don't seem too thrilled either.

I think yoyo should attend the town hall and present his thesis for how to fix the plight of African Americans. If he's got all the answers he should share them.

Re: “Slideshow: Sad Dads at One Direction

It's a clear and obvious reference to The Simpsons. You were SUPPOSED to get the reference, not to think you're the only one who gets it.

When The Simpsons did their 'Rear Window' episode, did Bart turn to the audience and say, "Get it?! Hitchcock!"

Re: “Slideshow: Sad Dads at One Direction

The last quote is from The Simpsons. I get that it applies, but it's kind of dishonest to say it's a caption by TheSpin.

Can we retire the Wrecking Ball metaphor too?

Re: “Police and Community Leaders to Discuss Ferguson, Mo. at Town Hall Thursday (UPDATED)

The propensity of African American youths to commit crimes and the efforts needed to prevent criminal activity by black youths will not be discussed. It's only a matter of time before the subject of the following link becomes true in Nashville. Maybe it already has.

As funny as this is, I'm struck by this: Every picture is of a dad that loves his child enough to torture himself for hours so they have a good time.

Re: “Police and Community Leaders to Discuss Ferguson, Mo. at Town Hall Thursday (UPDATED)

This might be a good illustration of a fundamental difference between Nashville and Ferguson. I'm not that excited about politicians being there, but this meeting could be a positive sign that the Police Department is taking this seriously.

I don't think anyone is naive enough to believe that one meeting will cure every problem or source of friction between the public and the police. However, it's never a bad thing when people actually listen to each other and search for solutions.

Re: “Ferguson Has Happened Here

You have made a good point, JC. But that does not justify your name calling of those taking a different tack...me in this case. However if I ran into you somehow person to person I would not be angry. Afterall it is cyberspace.

Now, there is a lot of news out there, piling up as we speak, that appears to justify the officer shooting MB. You may have to eat a little crow in the next little while. Get ready.

Also, they might have to call off there little wardance down Rosa Parks.

Re: “Ferguson Has Happened Here

prag: my posts have been consistent with the mainline media reports (Fox News excluded). I have always once evidence became revealed, that this was murder. You might re read my comments before you ridicule them. Have I been wrong? Yes, but only when media reports are wrong. Do I speculate? yes, but from the point of informed knowledge from normally reliable sources.
If you wish to wait until all the votes are counted and indictments are handed down, verdicts are read, appeals are heard and ruled on, have at it. THAT is not me, that is not me persona. I am not afraid of being wrong, and have been wrong more than a few times. I am also intelligent enough to understand that on this site speculation fuels most all comments unaccompanied by cites, and even then they must be weighed against the validity of the sources.
Pragmatism rejects speculation and philosophical conjecture and prefers to deal with the colorless and tasteless practical. NO DAMN FUN! Thank you for your comment, but I reject your premise!

Re: “If the Tennessee Firearms Association Would Hold a Consistent Position for a Second, We'd all Appreciate It.

It's like shooting FISH in a barrel.

We have a GOP led legislature and have for a few years, a GOP executive branch, all these wonderful educational advancements, and we're keeping those pesky poor and old people from easy access to the polls so we can make Tennessee a GOP paradise. Where the hell's the jobs?
Must be that terrible Black Panther Muslim Kenyan Socialist Emperor-wanna-be Revolutionary dedicated to make the country all immigrants devil worshiper make our women have abortions pregnant or not Burqa wearing feminist communist community organizer Acorn advocate anti American anti constitution anti apple pie usurper of all things we like and cherish OBAMA's fault (????????????)!
