Re: “The Daily Links: Biggie, Tupac, and Viola Davis

It would be amusing the way yoyojohn talks to himself..............if it were not so indicative of some deep seated emotional distress.

And now ONE persona threatens to leave as if anyone other than himself would beg him to stay. WHAT would we do without you? I imagine the discourse would revert to a more civilized and sane level. I know I would be so very much nicer!

Or would I?

Re: “The Daily Links: Biggie, Tupac, and Viola Davis

Yep, there is a lack of curiosity and insight; they are, as they say, all truly knee jerk liberals.

I cannot recall a post from the gang with any original content.

I said the Jews supported NPR and was called a racist within in seconds it seemed. The Jews have huge political clout and this surely can at least be mentioned.

Re: “The Black Belles' Olivia Jean to Release Jack White-Produced Debut Solo LP Oct. 14

It is widespread knowledge that this hick serviced Jack. If you can't take the heat, don't cheat with your boss and destroy a family. No wonder people dislike her! Trash is trash and creates trash talking on the internet.
Also I post from a public computer. Wanna bet that other people do too?

I guess that is the only way to bully and threaten people to shut up right? Get a life.

Re: “The Daily Links: Biggie, Tupac, and Viola Davis

@CA: You only respect news sources that present stories to your specifications? That's certainly not fair and balanced. Did you see the news release the other day about the married father of two who was dismayed that his insurance was costing him $15,000 per year? My reaction to that was, "Wow!"

@john: You have to realize most of the people you're debating against depend on distortions and lies: Bush lied, Wall Street banks caused the financial crisis, Reagan was a bad President. "Fair and balanced" to them is not fair and balanced, so you might as well get used to it. None of them were aware of the CBS interview that revealed Saddam Hussein's subterfuge until I posted it it earlier and even now they can't admit that it's true because it violates their credo that Bush lied. They have a sickness.

Re: “The Daily Links: Biggie, Tupac, and Viola Davis

If I left this board it would shrivel up like a cold peter.

So, now you have your chance, or had your chance. Obama in the WH for 6 yrs and plenty on his plate. So far not so good here or overseas. If I did remove myself from posting I'm not sure what you people would do!

I've made a few attempts at constructive posting but it is not well received.

I think only Prag would give me any credit and I'm not sure about that.

Re: “The Daily Links: Biggie, Tupac, and Viola Davis

Ahhhhh, yoyojohn, you simple little toy soldier of the Reich.......err, right. The mere fact you mentioned the religion of these "Jewish organizations" in your denigration of NPR brings racist fodder to the fight, IMHO.
As far as me being a jerk, that is among the nicer things you have said about me in your many many incarnations over the last year or two. At least you left my dear mother out of it this time.
I said it because it was true and you know that, but you will deny deny deny with all the sincerity of an oft convicted con artist addressing the judge!

Re: “The Daily Links: Biggie, Tupac, and Viola Davis

The Iraq war and resulting destabilization of the region is uniquely Bush and the Republicans' baby. They branded anyone a traitor and made sure there was no grey area ("either with us or against us") who dared not to go along with what amounted to the first phase of the Bush 2004 (Re) Election Campaign.

Bush's handlers knew the only way he'd win the next election was to get the country involved in a big war so he was instructed to start one by Cheney and Rove, then they'd worry about making the rationale fit. I knew exactly what was going on while it was happening, but could only sit by and witness all the jingoism going on and even local dentists offering "discounts for the troops."

I still remember driving around a neighborhood 10 years ago and seeing those obscene Republican "Support President Bush And The Troops" campaign signs in some people's yards. That's how sinister that bunch was.

Re: “The Daily Links: Biggie, Tupac, and Viola Davis

The WSJ is not what it used to be, not even close. And I could care less how many people read it. I do read it occasionally and they do the exact same thing Fox does (and remember, along with the conservative tabloid the NY Post, they are all owned by the same people now). The WSJ filters the news in such a way that the mostly conservative readers will spend their money reading it. They do this constantly as with regards to Obamacare. They almost always spin Obamacare stories in a negative light and put them on the front page. Case in point was the news several months ago when it came out that people were quitting their jobs because of Obamacare. The reason for this was positive. People weren't shackled to jobs that they didn't need nor want but stayed only because they couldn't get insurance on their own. Now that insurers can't discriminate against people due to age or preexisting conditions, many were planning on quitting. But leave it to the WSJ and Fox to spin this in such a way as to cause maximum outrage by the likes of john and yoyo, and the rest of the Tea Party base. "OBAMACARE CAUSING PEOPLE TO LEAVE THE WORKFORCE! No, the WSJ is neither reliable nor terribly accurate anymore. And that's too bad because they were once a highly quality paper.

Re: “On stage and screen, Kris Kristofferson remains as much a cult figure as an icon

RJ, I know who Stacy Harris is, and she is a knowledgeable and very nice person who runs a good website about Nashville music. I have a professional regard for her. She is also entitled to her opinion about things. I myself have opinions about music that aren't always popular or in line with accepted wisdom. As a matter of fact, isn't part of the point of a career such as Kristofferson's the idea that having your own takes on and opinions about things is important? That we can disagree without being rude about it?

Re: “The Daily Links: Biggie, Tupac, and Viola Davis

You really are a jerk, JC. Notimg the source of NPR money cannot ever be racist unless you knew the context/intent. You do not.

Why did you say that?

Re: “The Daily Links: Biggie, Tupac, and Viola Davis

Gretchen Carlson still is a hideous caricature.

You do know, yoyojohn, that few really care what you watch. Congrats on coming out of the religious bigot (anti Jewish) closet with your NPR remark. We'll just add that to your racist catalog!

" I'll tell you how it really is out there.... and what you need to do."

What childish arrogance to suppose YOU have any answer on what someone needs to do! Look, I'm really not a big Prag fan, he is kinda sorta naive and pretentious for my tastes, but that's just me. But Prag has it hands down over a pretender like you, Forest! In the words of that Great American Leporidae philosopher Bugs Bunny, "What a Maroon"!

Now is the time for you to go google-city and drop some obscure philosophical tidbit into the conversation in a vain attempt to impress (ala Occam).

Re: “Revived Sutler Saloon Opens in Melrose

What happened to the great catfish sandwich the old Sutler had??? I thought that was mentioned by the restaurant owners as a standout dish that would be returning. The menu looks interesting, but the price point of entrees sets it far beyond the old Sutler; the place seems like it's catering more to foodies now, like too many of Nashville's newer eating haunts. Guess I'll just have to relive my memories.

Re: “The Daily Links: Biggie, Tupac, and Viola Davis

Prag, I'll tell you how it really is out there.... and what you need to do.

To achieve this, simply understanding the news, one must watch CNN and FOX then-filter.

For print sources; WSJ and NYT. The WSJ is much more reliable and accurate. But, the Times is the voice of God. In the Times one has the hint of what I call a hysterical progressiveness, just barely, always though, just below the surface. Subscribing for both is a bit pricey unfortunately for many.

On the internet I look at CNN and FOX. It is amazing what each omit or add of fairly important stuff. NPR should be helpful but they repay their masters. And, their masters are not the Koch brothers, but wealthy Jewish organizations and the US gov't. BTW, I am always amused at the attacks on the Kochs, but then the good liberal turns right back to his NPR never considering the conflict here.
And, not being irritated that his own taxpayer dollars are spent on pushing a liberal agenda.

Re: “The Daily Links: Biggie, Tupac, and Viola Davis

This thread has sunk to the point that there is a serious debate about which network has the hotter females. Shouldn't everyone at least pretend that you watch the network where you will get the best information (excluding Fox, of course)?

Re: “Mitchell Deli Team to Open Rudie's Seafood and Sausage

sounds great. i just went to mitchells last week and bought lunch plus some deli meat and bread to make my own sandwiches for future lunches. i actually felt i got a fair price considering the quality of the items.

i will definitely go to the new place. i was just wondering what might go in that space. if you must drink wine then you could always stop in the sushi place or the beer garden prior to your meal.

Re: “The Daily Links: Biggie, Tupac, and Viola Davis

Kudlow is a good conservative as I recall. I would guess CNN tends to put on some ugly ones/fat and who knows what next? Do they think a Muslim complete with head scarf might help their sinking viewer rate?

I watch FOX and CNN about equally. The FOX business channel is so far superior to CNN, I rarely watch CNN Biz.

I have always wondered why some of our regulars never watch FOX. It would be hard to have any broad view of recent scandals/events/BHO without looking at several channels or magazines, what have you.

The WSJ has the largest readership in America yet liberals often bash it and I think some of our board zealots just will not read it.


The Tenn had a whole editorial page devoted to MNPS. I tried to read it but was unable to discover any significant move towards improvement/change/reform.

JC/Pinnochio: Is it not more of the same? I know you read it carefully.

Re: “The Daily Links: Biggie, Tupac, and Viola Davis

Erin Burnett, besides being good to look at, is smart enough that CNBC (money channel) put her to work alongside Kudlow and others during the meltdown. Gretchen Carlsen is a former Miss America, Shannon Bream has the prettiest eyes on TV.
